Dzien Dobry! got into Krakow Monday morning at 6:30am....overnight train from Prague was a wee bit late but with no connections, it really didn't matter. Dropped our luggage off at Hotel Matejko and headed straight back to the bus station to catch a minibus to Oswiecim (Auschwitz). The weather was mighty cold/windy...perhaps appropiate for the day …

After finishing the tour we were a little big hungry so we decided to have a really nice lunch in the main square. We sat down in one of the hundreds restaurants and got one of the most typical Polish dishes - pierogi. This is a kind of dumplings filled with different things. Besides that Gonzalo ordered a red soup to accompany the dumplings. The lunch cost us PLN 68 (USD 10 per person) so it was a bit expensive for ...

There are still walls built between buildings to partition off the area and you get some sense of how dehumanising it would ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Matejko Krakow
I loved this hotel, the location can't be beaten,apart from being very close to the town centre,it is also a five minute walk from the main railway station meaning getting around (inclucing to and fron the airport) is very easy.There is a tourist office on the same square where tours can be booked to Aushwitz and the salt mines etc. if that's what you prefer. The rooms are a good size and our lovely shower room was newly done. The staff were very helpful,the included breakfast very good and plentiful. A big bonus was that the hotel,despite being so central,was very peaceful, and very quiet at night giving us a good nights sleep in the clean and comfortable beds.
Übernachten Sie hier!
Ich bin von diesem Hotel begeistert. Die Lage ist unschlagbar, es ist sehr nahe am Stadtzentrum, bis zum Hauptbahnhof geht man fünf Minuten, so kann man ganz leicht herumkommen (auch zum Flughafen). Am gleichen Platz ist auch eine Touristeninfostelle, dort kann man Ausflüge nach Auschwitz und zu den Salzminen buchen wenn Sie das gerne sehen möchten.
Die Zimmer sind recht groß und unser tolles Bad war neu renoviert worden. Die Angestellten sind sehr hilfsbereit, das im Preis enthaltene Frühstück war sehr gut und reichhaltig. Ein großer Pluspunkt war, dass das Hotel trotz der zentralen Lage sehr friedlich war. Nachts war es sehr ruhig und so konnten wir in den sauberen und komfortablen Betten gut schlafen.
Just returned from 4 day break in Krakow, stayed at Matejko hotel, excellent location and very very clean. 2 minute walk from Floranska gate and street, which leads directly into the market place. Altho the hotel was given a four star rating, we found it a little basic, but that being said, for the rate we paid, would have no hesitation in recommending it to other travellers
Sehr, sehr sauber
Komme gerade von einem viertägigen Besuch aus Krakau zurück, ich war im Hotel Matejko. Die Lage ist klasse und es ist sehr, sehr sauber. Bis zum Floranska Tor geht man nur zwei Minuten, von dort kommt man direkt auf den Marktplatz. Das Hotel hat zwar vier Sterne aber wir fanden es recht einfach. Aber für den Preis, den wir gezahlt haben, würde ich es ohne zu zögern anderen Reisenden empfehlen.
Lohnt wirklich einen Besucht
Die Lage des Hotels ist fantastisch, in Nähe der Stadt und innerhalb von fünf Gehminuten ist man am Marktplatz. Es gab das übliche kontinentale Frühstück aber es gab jede Menge. Das Zimmer war gut, sauber und ausreichend. Ich fand das Hotel rundherum wirklich schön für einen Aufenthalt.
Really worth a visit
I found the hotel to be in a fantastic location - close to the town - 5 mins to main square
Breakfast usual continental but plenty of it
Room was good - clean and adequate
In all I found the hotel to be a really nice place to stay
As this was our first visit to Krakow we wanted a centrally located, average hotel but without spending too much money. What we found with the Matejko was excellent value for money, very clean and in a brilliant location.
Just back from a three night stay in this hotel, and can definitely recommend it to anyone. Staff were very nice, helpful, and courteous.
The breakfast was very good, and included cereals, fruit juices, breads and rolls, tea/coffee, cold ham, cheese and eggs, and hot cooked sausages.
The hotel location is excellent - just a short walk from the main station, and from the old town square (an excellent little pizzeria on the way down to the square is Vesuvio [in the cellars of the hotel Floryan, ul. Florianska 38] - try it, you'll not be disappointed...)
We will definitely be back to Krakow, and would have no hesitation is using this hotel again (ps room 201 overlooks the square - a twin bedded, excellent room).
We have just returned from a 5 day stay at the Matejko Hotel. Initially we were allocated Room 209, situated adjacant to the building next door, which was in the process of being refurbished. We therefore experienced drilling and banging early one morning. However at our request we were moved to a different room without too much difficulty. Breakfast each morning consisted of the usual cold buffet, which was adequate but rather unexciting. The hotel is very well placed to explore the Old Town and made an excellent base. We noticed that the hotel was placed in the "luxury" category of the Krakow inyourpockect guide which is rather misleading as it a mid priced hotel at best. Overall considering that we paid 50 euro (using travel Poland website) a night this represented value for money.
Very good value
We stayed here in March 2006.Could not fault anything about the hotel.Will be staying here again.Ask for room 305 if available,so much space with a balcony overlooking the square.
