      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Matejko Krakow

      Stay here!

      from

      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!

      from

      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.

      Scrupously clean

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      Great location, excellent value for money

      from

      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.

      The hotel is an easy 5 minute walk from the bus and train stations, just round the corner from the most amazing shopping centre (loads of designer shops in there as well as a H & M and a C & A!!) and only a very easy 5 minute stroll from the heart of the old town.

      We had a room on the 4th floor - served by a lift as well as stairs, which although not luxurious, was certainly more than adequate for a long weekend stay. The only criticism of the room is the lack of tea and coffee making facilities - next time I'll take a travel kettle. There is also no mini bar in the room - but with so many bars in the vicinity who wants to drink in their room - just get out into town and enjoy!!

      Krakow is a fascinating place - I was amazed at how clean it is. even in the smallest underground bars the toilets are spotless - puts the UK to shame. The people are very friendly, many do not speak much if any English but will try to help all the same.

      Eating out is very good and incredibly cheap - there is a MacD's as well as KFC if you like that sort of thing, but the local burgers are excellent and the chicken kebabs are great - try them.

      We did a trip to Zakopane on the local bus - it takes about 2.5 hours and costs 15zl - about £3, well worth it.

      We'll certainly be going back to Poland, Krakow was fantastic and well worth visiting before the English lager louts discover the cheap beer!

      Excellent hotel

      from

      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).

      Pleasant hotel

      from

      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

      from

      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.

After seeing these ruins we walked around the woman's camp to see what the living conditions were like. They were horrible. The men's camps where all burnt down because they were made out of timber but the chimneys remain. All you can see are just rows and rows or chimneys where the huts used to ...

      ... the higher ranking Nazis occupied the former Jewish homes. Synagogues were re-purposed, often in demeaning ways such as for horse stables. It is for this reason that these buildings exist to this day.

      We walked into the Kazimierz square, a small town center lined with restaurants and bars. This place has a vibrant nightlife, filling with music and bar patrons when the sun goes down. There is also an old synagogue on the south portion of the square. Even ...
