    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Wyspianski Krakow

    Good central hotel

    from

    Stayed here in November 2005 as part of a 3 night break costing £140 pp. The hotel is centrally located and quiet; all rooms are twin with the beds arranged end to end against one wall which seemed odd at first but worked OK. Room was warm and clean and plenty of hot water (shower). Reception staff spoke excellent English and were well informed and helpful. The breakfast was very good indeed, juices, cereals, cheese and meat plus cooked sausages and eggs and a good selection of breads.

    The only blip was one evening when we stayed in for dinner; we had drinks and good starters and then waited over an hour for our main course! We paid and left! There are very good restaurants within 10 minutes of the hotel, on the main square, and one has no reason to need to eat in the hotel.

    Apart from this, an excellent good value and central hotel.

    Comfy

    from

    The locals still know this hotel as the "Dom Turistiye", which is a hangover from the days of communism, which was a rough and ready hostel for tourists on a tight budget. There has clearly been much redevelopment with soft furnishings and carpeting throughout.

    The location is great, just a short walk away from the main square.

    The staff all seemed to have an excellent grasp of English, so no problems there.

    The price of the room includes a very sumptuous Polish breakfast of cheeses, hams, sausages, eggs etc.

    The rooms are small, but then so is the price to stay, but they have en suite shower and toilet (combined), TV and radio. TV reception was not always terribly clear, but there was a good selection of foreign language TV, including Italian, but not English.

    On one of the nights, there was international football of the TV so the Ukrainians on my landing got excited at times, and this made me chuckle, and might have annoyed light sleepers.

    I would recommend it as a cheap and cheerful place, which is conveniently located, very warm in winter and served by very friendly staff.

    Great base

    from

    my husband and i stayed here for 4 nights in feb - i reckon that everyone who has posted a review of this hotel just didn't pay the litte extra for a superior room - our room was huge with a double bed and all mod cons - ok you still knew it wasn't ultra modern but you don't expect that - the bathroom was a little small but hey you don't need a huge bathroom anyway!!!

    the rooms were always warm and comfortable and the housekeeping excellent - we paid a measly £115 for our double room for 4 nights - so come on people there are hotels in britain that you couldn't even get a room for one night at this price!!

    Breakfast was ok - always loads of food and the reception staff were very helpful as were the bar staff - i would have no regrets in reccommending this hotel to anyonw - go there and enjoy the polish hospitality

    I thought it was good

    from

    I stayed with a group as part of a holocaust museams trip and I thought the hostel was fairly good.

    We managed 3 beds in our room and 2 of our friends ended up on our floor a few nights after a long night, so there was plenty space.

    The private balconies were good but be careful about leaving your door open as they could be easily reached from another balcony.

    The staff were friendly and polite and i as a vegetarian was well catered for during breakfast and dinners.

    Please be advised

    from

    This hotel was formerly a youth hostel. It has undergone a refurbishment but is still not quite what you would expect. The standard double rooms are very small and only have two single beds that are head to head and cannot be pushed together. There are rooms at the front of the hotel that have got the standard layout of twin beds that can be put together. The hotel is still used by large school parties and can be noisy.

    With all that said, the hotel staff are very friendly and very accomodating. The location is good with a short 2/3 minute walk to the main square. I managed to upgrade my room and did have an enjoyable visit to Krakow.

    Un hotel economico in tutti i sensi

    from

    L'hotel era davvero economico e adeguato ma anche rumoroso di notte. C'erano solo camere con letti singoli a disposizione e queste puzzavano di fumo stagnante. Non servitevi dei taxi dell'hotel perché cercheranno di spillarvi soldi. Con noi, quando siamo ripartiti, hanno cercato di farci sganciare il doppio di quanto avessi pagato per il tragitto dall'aeroporto.

    Cheap and Cheerful

    from

    OK Cheap and cheerful, noisy at night though and only single beds available. Also the hotel rooms smelled of stale cigarette smoke.

    Do not use the hotel taxis as they tried to rip us off going back to the airport and tried to charge double what we had paid coming from the airport!!!

    L'hotel merita più stelle di quante ne ha

    from

    Ho trascorso due notti in quest'hotel con i miei compagni di scuola. La nostra camera aveva un sistema wi-fi e un balcone privato - era fantastico! Il cibo era delizioso, con un sacco di scelta per i vegetariani. Il personale era gentile e disponibile. Il negozio dell'hotel era davvero interessante. Ritornerei!

    Better than star rating

    from

    I stayed here with a school party for 2 nights. Room had hi fi system and private balcony which was great! Food was excellent with lots of veggie options. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel shop was cool!

    I'd go back there!

    AM - Packed our bags to leave the Hotel Polski, this is a very nice place, great reception area, great breakfast and a great location! Bit sad to leave here! Walked through the park, 600 metres to the Hotel Wyspianski and checked in, luckily our room was empty and we moved straight in. We've been upgraded to a better room for the same price, woohoo …

As they paced forward one by one, a high ranking nazi soldier would wave his white gloved hand. Left or to the right. The right was for healthier Jews who would endure some of the most in humane conditions ever to be encountered. A wave to the left, meant imminent death. The group to the right were sent to the barracks. There they would try and survive through ...

We were in midday heat and sweating profusely with about 30 people in one bunker room. They would have dealt with 1000 people huddled together. We were also taken into a gas chamber, an isolation cell, ...
