Ibis Krakow Centrum
Travel Blogs from Krakow
So glad we went to this beautiful city. It was like traveling back to our small towns in Minnesota.
Krakow, as a former capital of Poland, has a delightful old town as well as Wawel castle as drawcards for tourists. The town square is a wonderful, huge space, buzzing with activity day and night. There is a small Jewish area, once home to many more Jews prior to the horrors of World War II. Trips can be made out to Auschwitz and Birkenau, 2 of the …
Wow, this trip has been fast and full of new places, information, currency, and bus but. We(all 18 of us) started from Minneapolis, MN last Sunday in order to get to Berlin. It should have been a pretty straight forward deal but... -left Chicago an hour late -Lufthansa was on strike in Dusseldorf -stood in line for about 4 hours trying to get a new …
... as slave labour). We then stopped at the entrance to Auschwitz 1 and waited for our guide. After collecting our audio guides we enter the camp through the main gate with the words "Arbeit Macht Frei" (Works Makes You Free) which was obviously not true for the Jews but a sign of Nazi Propoganda. The tour then takes you around the various buildings which include the extermination room where there is mountains of human hairs (from over 60,000 people which the ...
... on the walls that I thought might have been original but it is just stupid tourists. She said they even find nazi sentiments on the walls which they paint over quick smart! Then we walked around the grounds. Heaps of huts, barb wire fences etc around. Then we we went to the male side and saw the latrines which I can imagine would have been disgusting. There was no sanitation system so prisoners assigned to the latrine work party had to shovel out the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Krakow Centrum
Excellent hotel - cheap (approx £40 per room per night), quiet location, quiet hotel (we went from Mon- Thur inclusive - ie. during the week so many clients were businessmen) and very friendly staff.
Having stayed in other good Krakow hotels over the last few years but not being able to get rooms in these other hotels for the dates we visited the city, we booked direct (by fax) with the Ibis Centrum. The reservation was confirmed very quickly and efficiently.
Standard Ibis hotel, convenient location
A standard Ibis hotel that looks exactly like other Ibis'es across Europe. But, it's clean, the rooms are nice and there's a good selection of non-polish TV channels. And most importantly, it's only a short walk from both the Wavel and the main city square. Do notice though, that although the breakfast was nice, it was rather expensive (8€) - for this kind of money you could get supper in a nice restaurant.
This Ibis hotel is in an excellent location in Krakow, just a short 5/10 minute walk to the central square. The rooms are furnished in the usual standard you'd expect of an Ibis and the restaurant is also the same as you'll find in all Ibis hotels worldwide. The main reason for staying here is the great location combined with the very good price (on average 220 PLN per night). The hotel is also a short walk to the Vistula River along which you can walk to the Castle. The only negative side to this hotel is the high price of the drinks in the bar - compared to the low prices in the rest of Krakow! However, that aside it's a good location, good standard and a good price. We wouldn't bother staying anywhere else if we went back.
The Ibis Hotel is great value, at around £40 for a twin or double room, and an extra £4 each for breakfast. The rooms are nice - spotlessly clean and bright with everything you need, and the en-suite shower room is ideal. You should take the breakfast, it was very good value, with plenty of everything you could want - cereals, yoghurt, cheeses, cold meats, selection of bread rolls, sausages, tomatoes, eggs, juices, very nice strong coffee, etc.
You know what you get
When you stay at an Ibis, you know what you get, since they're all pretty much the same. This one is no exception. However, this one's location and price makes it an excellent choice when staying in Krakow. That is, of course, if you prefer hotel chains before more local and often more rewarding family hotels, for example.
The rooms are clean and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel is situated just a few minutes walk from the old town which is great.
Great base for exploring Krakow
Spookily reminiscent of every other Ibis you've ever stayed in. Convenient and good value place to stay for exploring the beautiful city of Krakow. Standard Ibis room and bathroom, clean and a decent size. Friendly and helpful staff. Didn't eat in the restaurant but menu looked ok. Breakfast was reasonable. Good variety of stuff. Also had a bar and terrace. Easy walking distance to the old town square (10 mins) and convenient for the castle and river. Highly recommended.
This hotel is one of your standard Ibis hotels. At 40 pounds a night for two it is excellent value. The hotel is located about ten minutes walking distance from the square. The staff were friendly and efficient and all spoke English. The breakfast was good with a mix of breads, cheeses, cereals, meats and fruit. Rooms were adequately sized and the shower was excellent. Beds werent the softest but still fine. This is an excellent choice for those on a budget seeking a good, clean and modern hotel.
El hotel es bastante céntrico,se puede ir andando perfectamente al centro y el paseo es bonito, el barrio donde está el hotel es feo pero no peligroso, el hotel está impoluto, los desayunos no son maravillosos pero son aceptables,tienen bidones de agua en todas las plantas de uso gratuito, las habitaciones están muy limpias,no son grandes pero tampoco ridículas,tienen aire acondicionado, el baño es pequeño pero limpio, la única pega de la habitación es que la ventana al exterior es fija , no puedes abrirla, en suma es un hotel nuevo, muy práctico y limpio,bien situado, en cracovia hay hoteles con mejores instalaciones y más centricos pero he estado en hoteles de 4 estrellas pero que muy malos,
