Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Wyspianski Krakow
Good central hotel
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.
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.
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
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!

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 …

Showing Noelle around Wroclaw, where I live, was really special to me. The first night we got back and had dinner I cried (maybe from exhaustion form the weekend) but I think it was really special to share this life changing experience with someone I love so much. While she was here I showed her all around the city center, the churches, the Christmas markets ...

A similar story (that also makes an appearance in Schindler's List) is the story of Tadeusz Pankiewicz. Pankiewicz was a pharmacist, who operated one of four pharmacies in the Podgórze District of Krakow. In 1941, the district was closed off, and turned into the Jewish ghetto. Of the four pharmacies, Pankiewicz was the only one who refused the Nazi's offer to relocate to another part of the city. Furthermore, he and his ...
... s of tourists all sorted into every language group. It was confronting. It was surreal. I found myself thinking about the terror and sheer utter evil that took place here. I was also surprised and angry as I watched some of tourists jostle for the best photos, even selfies. Some giggled and laughed amongst themselves as the tour progressed. I mean do you really need that perfect photo of the 2 tonnes of human hair removed form victims to ...
... Switzerland, Russia, Estonia, Germany and NZ). At 11pm we arrived on the outskirts of town, with little to do we hit the sack. Although on sitting on my bed, i fell through it, not a great start. Then the toilet decided to continuously rumble, keeping us from being able to sleep. But after Dan discovered a bottle of alcohol in the toilet cistern, and removed it, all was well. Oh yea, I had fixed the slat bed by this stage.
