Human Horror to Divine Mercy

... What was surprising to me was how many families were already inside praying. It was incredible to see families walk in and out, staying to pray for a little while as they went about their day. This was something I hadn't seen in Europe. This church was alive and was more than just a tourist site. It was a house of prayer which was very refreshing to see the faith still alive and active. So, we spend some time praying, search the souvenir shops for any last things ...

Krakow (May 27 to May 29th)

... shooting of women and children. This was also the place where Schindler's factory is and the current museum has an excellent but depressing account of the occupation of Poland by the Nazis with Krakow being the Nazi's HQ in Poland - 21,000 of them at the height of the war. The Nazi commandant during this tumultuous time was the infamous Amon Goth, known to sometimes wake up in the morning, grab a gun and shoot a few prisoners just for the hell of it, according ...

Auschwitz

... 000 people. A few bunkers were made out of brick, and the rest were made out of wood, inspired by the stables where the nazis kept 52 horses. Instead they shoved (they say) 700 people in these 'barns', but from survivor testimony, it was more like 1000 people per barn. Before the Jews were liberated the nazis attempted to destroy the bunkers, so the brick ones are the only ones that stand. Later, one row of wooden bunkers stand, rebuilt from the scraps of wood ...

The Crack Down on Krakow

... and sausage covered in a mushroom sauce and veggies. I had a traditional Polish sour soup, yummy pork with fried potatoes and veggies. We decided our choice of food fits into Polish traditions. On one of the two days we were there, we went on a 6 hour tour outside of Karkow to see Auschwitz. The drive took about an hour and when we drove up to the camp my heart started pumping. To think of what people had gone through in this horrible place. We took a tour ...

Salt with that?

Arrived very early in Krakow after another overnight sleeper. It was a bit of a panic as the train guy said we had 6 tickets but only 2 reservations on this train. We stood on the platform to the last minute before he let us get on... I guess we all signed up for an adventure.

It was nice to get back to the buzz after the Tatras mountains. We stayed in a small hotel

    Historical Traveler Reviews Paszkowka Palace Hotel Krakow

    Very dissapointed

    from

    My husband and I stayed in the hotel for week in May 05 while on vacation in Krakow. From the beginning of the trip there were problems. We thought we will stay in the main building which is shown on the website. Well, that was not the case. We were put in another building across the street. Our room smelled, was very small, and TV has only 3 channels working. Location was another story. The hotel is located in the middle of nowhere. If we did not have a car it would be a disaster. The only good thing was the food served for breakfast at the restaurant. Lastly, while checking out the staff tried to overcharge us for the phone use. We would not recomend this hotel to anyone.

    Very Enjoyable

    from

    We stayed in this hotel for four nights over New Year and had a great time. Our rooms were in the small building opposite the main hotel but we knew this was the case before we went and this was not a problem. The room was warm, clean and cosy. The dining room in the main hotel was also clean and pleasant. The breakfasts were tasty with plenty of choice and they made a valiant attempt to provide vegetarian lunches and dinners for myself, even though it seems vegetarianism is uncommon in Poland. The bar was open all day. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The grounds and surrounding villages made a pleasant area for walking. The hotel is a long way from major towns - but there are some little bars and shops within walking distance. It costs around £20 for a taxi to Krakow- well worth a visit. All in all we found Paszkowka to be a lovely, peaceful place for a short stay.

    Five Days in Paradise

    from

    My partner and I stayed at the hotel for 5 days in July 2005. This place is a hidden secret.. A must stay for anyone who is going to visit Krakow, 20 Minutes, Zakopane (1.5 hrs), Oswiecim/Birkenau (40 min) and Wielczka (Salt mines 35 Min). The only requirement is to have a vehicle. The hotel is wonderful with a pool behind the Grainary. Excellent kitchen with great meals and good wine selection. The owner (Jan) was very friendly and helpful to us... Just below the Palace is a small village Wlk Drogi where one can have great small town meals and beer and a very reasonable price. We felt like royalty staying here... Another added bonus is if you stay for 5 nights you get the 5th night free... If you are going to This area and want more info email me at byzewski@hotmail.com...Marty Byzewski

    Hotel not as expected

    from

    We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the palace. I thought it would finish our holiday in style after 5 nights in krakow. We got a taxi there and booked in two rooms in the palace chambers. Rooms were depressing. Very dark and not clean. Horrible musty smell, we hated it. Tried to get rooms back in krakow town but fully booked. No satellite tv, only 2 stations working, sauna not working, no shop or minbar as advertised. We spent a lot of time walking just to be away from palace. Staff were friendly though and food in restaurant in evenings was good. Breakfast however was very plain. Would not recommend this hotel. I booked this hotel as their own website was very inviting. I feel this was mis-representation.

    Not a Palace

    from

    We should have know better since no of our local family have heard of this place. The place was indeed like a palace- cold and drafty- but the staff brought in heaters and that helped. We went accross the street to the annex to see the pool and hot tub- hot tub was ice cold with a garden hose sticking out of it- all the gym equipment was cheep and therefore broken. We signed up for a massage- and it was cheep- and we got what we paid for- Althought she tried- I don't think the yound lady had any massage training. I would not want to be here in the summer or winter- spring and fall may be okay. We wanted to try something different- and we sure did. Did I mention it's out in the middle of nowhere- which could be very nice. We were told the owner was an American from Chicago and was doing his best to restore the property- but it was certainly misrepresented on all the travel web sites. The best part was the free internet access- but you can get that anywhere in Poland if you have your laptop and a phone cord.

    Not for us!

    from

    My partner and I stayed at this Hotel for 2 of 3 nights that we paid for, and were not really impressed with our short stay there. We did hire a car which we picked up from the airport because we knew that the Hotel was a 20 min drive, and also we could travel to karakow(25 mins) and other places of interest at our leisure. One of the main reasons we only stayed for 2 nights, is that the standard of the hotel was more like 2 star rather then 4 star! There was no indoor heated pool, the gym was a joke, and we actually stayed in another building which was not shown in the brochure,very small and with a funny smell? Breakfast was a joke, no hot food, but all of the staff were very pleasant and eager to please. In our opinion this Hotel needs to be downgraded to a 2 or 3 star.

    A touch of old Polska

    from

    My wife and I spent 2 nights at the hotel from 18th August 04. The hotel was in a great setting, the staff were most attentive, and the food which in most cases was traditional Polish cuisine was excellent, the wild mushroom soup, and bigos a must for the hungry traveller the rooms and the hotelpublic areas were well furnished and comfortable. I for one will be returning

    Enjoyed, but can't wholeheartedly recommend

    from

    We enjoyed that the location was outside of the city and considered the relatively long taxi ride, and navigating the bus ride, to be part of the adventure. It was too bad that the buses only ran during part of the day. We liked exploring the neighborhood on foot, as we were not in a hurry.

    A Great Hotel but VERY far from the city center...

    from

    Minuses -

    About 40US in a cab to get there from the train station (That's on the meter boys and girls).

    Hot tub wasn't working that particular day and a half that we were there.

    The cheaper 4 Zlotney mini bus to town only runs midday.

    Looks to be a work in progress as I saw unfilled nail holes all over the place

    Pluses -

    Beautiful Setting in a real Palace!

    Great room rate for a big room and super comfy bed!

    Super helpful Staff Checked us in early (7am) after getting in from an overnight train ride.

    Quiet and very serene.

    A real palace!

    from

    My wife and I stayed at Paszkowka Palace on June 8, 2004. We wanted a treat after spending the morning a Auschwitz, a very sobering experience indeed. The hotel was a former palace that has been entirely renovated and is now in excellent condition. Our room-- a suite actually-- was booked on the internet and included a fine breakfast. We also had dinner at the hotel and were impressed with the quality of the food, the service, the decor, and the prices. Walking along a country road in Poland after dinner was a rare treat. We also enjoyed swimming in the hotel pool. The staff was young and enthusiastic. We were glad that we had given ourselves this treat on our last night in Poland.
