Upon arrival in Krakow, in order to lighten the mood and start gearing up for New Year's Eve tomorrow, we sat down for some vodka tasting before heading out for dinner at a local polish restaurant, followed by a few more vodkas at a bar. On the morning of New Year's Eve we set off for a walking tour of Krakow. Visiting many of the main sites, we were told much about the history of Krakow, however I didn't actually manage to retain much ...

It goes 327m below ground level, although tourists only go down 135m, and along 2.5km of corridors. Salt extraction started in the 13th century, and this is one of the oldest working salt mines in the world. It was all hewn out by hand from solid salt, ...

This was pretty awesome, as the volunteers would give us two bottles. One to place in this gigantic love heart they were making, and one to drink. Fantastic marketing.
After spending a few minutes oogling and taking pictures of the love heart, we went inside the Cloth Hall. And I got ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Wyspianski Krakow
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 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.
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!!!
I thought it was good
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
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
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
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
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
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!
