... We learnt about the Germanisation of everyday life from education, to culture and even shopping. Inevitably, there was a lot about restrictions and regulations, terror, punishment and executions. We saw life under Nazi rule through documents and artefacts and photos and film and quotations and tons of captions. "We walk around in a daze, still unable to admit to ourselves that this is the beginning of a catastrophe we have not seen in our history,"
The reality ...
... it easy and watch 'Schindler's List', which was based on events that took place a few kilometres from where we were staying. We thought it would also provide a good history refresher in advance of our tour of Auschwitz the following day.
We had been told by quite a few people, and had also read online, that a tour of the Wieliczka Salt Mines was an experience not to be missed while in Krakow, and had booked ourselves an afternoon tour as it ...
... our tickets and even gave us change. Hope had returned! We set off for the festival and began whiling away the hours until Flo would make her grand entrance. Somewhere around hour three we realised one of the locker keys was missing. The locker containing all of our stuff - money, passports, bags, life. However, using our powers of suppression and denial, we managed to have a great time at the concert. It became clear that Flo was indeed in a category beyond human. Lost and ...
... to appreciate what freedoms we do have today. I know this section is quite serious and "deep" for a blog, but anything less I think would be a disservice to the experience. Back in Krakow itself the mood is much lighter and full of life. The historic city centre was a buzz of activity the entire time we were there as it held the championships of the country's junior indoor soccer league - proudly sponsored by Coke, a fact that you definitely could not escape!

The old town was very beautiful, with heaps of romantic looking cafe's and street restaurants. We walked to the main market square area where there were swarms of people - a fun run, marathon type thing was on so many of the streets and roads were disrupted with runners. After exploring this part of Krakow for a few hours, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Qubus Hotel Krakow
Stupendo soggiorno al qubus hotel
L' Albergo è meraviglioso.Le stanze sono grandi e pulitissime e il personale è gentilissimo.Sono stato al qubus hotel dal 6 giugno al 10 giugno e mi sono trovato benissimo.La colazione è splendida.L'albergo non dista molto dal centro storico di Cracovia e per arrivare al centro a 100 metri c'è la stazione del tram dove si deve prendere o il 13 o il 74 o dopo 4 fermate uno è in centro.
Excellent Hotel, Highly Recommended !
I travel a lot on business around Europe & the Qubus is one of the best hotels I've stayed in for long time.
It is a short Tram ride from the city centre & station (Tram 13 or 74) or a very pleasant ten minute walk.
This is a fairly new hotel, my room & all the public areas are in immaculate condition.
I had a lovely room with all the amenities you could wish for (flat screen TV, internet access, mini-bar, ironing board, super range of toiletries, etc).
Add to this very polite professional staff, a relaxing lobby bar & a brilliant breakfast.
All in all the Qubus is an excellent 4* hotel that would a lot of 5* hotels a run for their money.
Highly Recommended !
Excellent location in an excellent city
Stayed at the Qubus Hotel for 3 nights in early May 2007. This has to be one of, if not the best contempoary hotel in Krakow. Staff are excellent, rooms are very clean, superb pool and the location is great for getting into the city. Bar in the foyer is very comfortable for early evening drinks.
The breakfast buffet is good and should meet everyones requirements, don't bother with lunch / dinner, the plentifull restraunts in the town square are far to good to be missed. Only 8-10 ( 2 pound) lots to get into town by Taxi or 15 minutes steady walk.
Krakow is a great city and the Qubus is a great choice for someone looking for a good hotel in a good location..
Dies ist ein sehr neues Hotel. Es ist ein modernes Geschäftshotel mit Internetverbindung auf dem Zimmer, sowohl als feste Internetstation als auch eine Verbindung für einen Laptop. Die Zimmer sind nicht riesig, aber sie sind groß genug. Das Hotel hat einen ausgezeichneten Ausblick über die Stadt, der noch besser ist, wenn man im Jacuzzibecken auf dem siebten Stock sitzt und den Sonnenuntergang über den vielen Kirchturmspitzen hinweg genießt. Unser Zimmerpreis hatte das Frühstück eingeschlossen, das sehr gut war. Es war alles vorhanden, vom Speck und Eier bis Obst und Joghurt, hausgemachte Kuchen, Brot und Fleisch. Wir haben beide Nächte im Hotelrestaurant gegessen, das eine sehr hohe Qualität bot, jedoch etwas teurer war, als einige Restaurants in Krakau. Dies ist jedoch von einem Hotelrestaurant zu erwarten. Man kann das Hotel ganz leicht finden, da es sehr gut ausgeschildert ist. Das Hotel liegt neben dem Fluss, im Süden der Stadt und man braucht ca. 15 Minuten zu Fuß bis zum Hauptplatz. Ich kann dieses Hotel im höchsten Maße empfehlen und würde auf jedem Fall wieder hier übernachten.
Ein neues Hotel, das erst seit letztem Sommer geöffnet hat. Alles ist sehr neu, die Betten sind toll und die Zimmer waren sauber und ordentlich. Wir haben 90 Euro pro Nacht bezahlt, was einem sehr guten Preis- Leistungsverhältnis entspricht, wenn man bedenkt, dass ein ausgezeichnetes Frühstück, die Nutzung des Fitnessraumes, Schwimmbad und Jacuzzi, im Preis inbegriffen waren. Das Hotel wird als Geschäftshotel eingestuft, aber ich kann es auf jedem Fall für Touristen empfehlen. Es liegt nicht im Zentrum und man braucht ca. 15 Minuten zu Fuß, um ins Zentrum zu gelangen, aber der Weg ist sehr schön und die Taxen sind sehr günstig. Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit einem traumhaften Ausblick auf die Innenstadt von Krakau und wenn Sie einen wunderschönen Sonnenuntergang erleben möchten, dann sollten Sie zum Schwimmbadbereich gehen und den Sonnenuntergang vom Jacuzzi aus genießen. Die Angestellten waren hilfsbereit und nett. Ich hoffe, dass das Hotel diesen Standard auch in der Zukunft beibehält und ich würde auf jedem Fall wieder hier übernachten.
Excellent hotel to be stay in. Contemporary decor, free inroom broadband internet, excellent 2-way opening sliding windows.
i could'nt really find any fault with this hotel. the rooms, and the hotel itself was absolutely spotless. very modern and very clean. the food was very good. its only a short distance to the old city square. about a kilometer or two. you can walk to it on a nice day or get a cab which costs about 14 zl. this approx E 3.50. there's a huge shopping mall across the river whick you can walk over to in 3 or 4 mins. it's very cheap in krackow except for shopping. clothes and such are the same as western prices. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpfull. The morning breakfast was a big surprise. we were expecting a continetal breakfast for the prices we paid. the breakfast is a large buffet display which you are spoilt for choice. its self service and it would take to long to list here whats on offer. there's a gym and leisure centre, although the pool and gym are a little small, it does the trick fine. we had a late night one night and slept past the room clean. we said nothing and were'nt bothered about it. later when we came back the rooms were cleaned. there is great views from atop the leisure centre and from the open glass elevators. the coffee was good, the food was good, the service and just about everything. only thing i would say, is that if your changing your money, don't use the hotel currency exchange. you get better rates from the many 'kantors' as there called that are all over the city. i would all the same highly recommend this hotel. the prices we paid were e 31.50 per person per nite sharing. from where i come from this is a quater or a third of what i would pay for similar hotel in ireland. these were april prices, so it may well be more in the summer months.
New hotel, has been open since last summer. Everything is quite new. The beds are great and the rums very clean and neat. We got a rate of about 90 Euro per night which was a great value for the money as it included an excellent breakfast, fitness room and access to the swimming pool and jacuzzi. The hotel is a business hotel but I really recommended for tourists as well. The hotel is not central and takes about 15 minutes to go to the centre but the walk is nice and taxis are inexpensive. We got a room with a beautiful view of downtown Krakow and if you want to enjoy a beautiful sunset go up to the pool area and see the sunset from the jacuzzi.
The staff was quite helpful and nice. I hope the hotel keeps the same standard in the future. I would definitely stay there again.
This is a very new hotel. The hotel is a modern business type hotel with internet in the rooms both on a fitted internet station and also a connection for a laptop. The rooms are not massive but are big enough. The hotel has excellent views over the city which are even better when you are sat in the jacuzzi on the 7th floor watching the sun set over the many church spires.
