Well the 13th started well enough with a tour of the Krakow Castle. We had booked the tours a couple of days earlier so we were able to jump the queues ... remember that if you are heading that way! The Polish rulers who hung out in Krakow were a mixture of Hussites and Habsburgs (probably some others but I'm getting confused by all these European …
Well, here I am at the laundromat... I just managed to upload the Berlin and Warsaw photos, not too many of the latter and now I will give you an in-progress update on Krakow while I wait for the dryer. Krakow is another example of Poland at its best. The architecture is beautiful. Yesterday we walked all over. We got to the Castle in the morning …
Well, Warsaw was absolutely amazing. Many years ago when I was working at Mars based in the UK I came here and stayed for one night in Warsaw before heading out to the countryside where their factory was. That night I must have stayed in the "new" part of town, I certainly didn't see the Old Town. The "Old Town" was almost COMPLETELY destroyed by …
... and shares my love for Brazilian alcoholic beverages. We spoke about different cities in Brazil and how they relate to each other. Fabien discovered that I look and sound like Tobey McGuire, and made sure that the guests at our table agreed. We ate and drank for about an hour before it was time for me to walk over to the train station.
Fabien graciously offered to walk me over to the station and help me find my train. ...

And when we were all back in the coach, our tour director asked us what was the thing we enjoyed most about the mine - and I piped up with "Standing next to the cute tour guide...". So as you can see, it was a much happier day today. Tomorrow we leave lovely Krakow (and the lovely salt mine tour guide) and head for Budapest in Hungary. Me ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wielopole Hotel Krakow
I stayed at the Wielopole Guest Rooms for 5 nights in mid-September 2006 -- I was very very happy with the hotel. First off, it is in an excellent location, just outside old Krakow, just 5 minutes from the main square but extremely quiet. There are tram stops nearby and easy access to the main square, Wawel Castle and the bus station as well. The hotel felt very modern and chic, with clean lines and a minimalist but comfortable feel. The staff was extremely helpful with local attractions and Izabela at the front desk helped me hire a local guide to go out into the countryside and actually track down some relatives.
Nice hotel - Good value
Clean, well-appointed hotel, which, in fact gives the impression of having been renovated recently. Very nice breakfast. Central location. Quiet. The staff is definitely friendly and as helpful as they can be, but not very aware of what is going on in their city which might interest tourists. I have the impression, however, that this is caracteristic of this city in general.
Great Hotel, Fantastic Breakfasts!
My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous weekend in Krakow, staying at the Wielopole guest rooms - What a fantastic place, clean spacious rooms, spotless bathrooms, friendly helpful staff. The breakfast was excellent too. This hotel is centrally located - approx 5/7 min walk from the famous Rynek Glowny (huge square!)... I would recommend this hotel, time and time again. We are hoping to use it again in the future.
This is an ideally situated, clean and friendly hotel. The rooms are a bit small but are spotlessly clean. We had one of four rooms with a small balcony with French windows - with a view of St Mary's Church in nearby Market Square.
This is an excellent hotel, just east of the park that rings the Stare Miasto, with several trolley lines stopping within a quarter block. The staff is friendly and fluent in English, and the room was large, clean, and comfortable, with a nice, spacious bathroom. I spent a month traveling through Poland and this was the only hotel where I had air conditioning in the room.
Can't fault this place
Great location between main sq. and jewish quarter. Rooms are spotless and spacious. great place to stay.
Absolutely great place to stay
My husband and I stayed at the Wielopole Guest Rooms for 3 nights and found the place to be absolutely perfect. The rooms are spotless with plenty of space and comfortable beds with lovely French doors onto a little balcony. The location of the hotel could not be surpassed as it is literally a 2 minute stroll to the lovely old cobbled streets with all the bars and restaurants and yet completely quiet at night as not directly next to any nightlife. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place and look forward to staying there again soon. I would not even consider staying anywhere else in Krakow.
I had an exceptionally pleasant stay at the Wielopole in Krakow. To start, I like the location, as it is just one block outside the Planty, which makes walking everywhere a breeze, yet it is far enough away that it is quiet and peaceful. The rooms are very clean, and the furnishings are all new, which is nice to come back to after a long day of exploring. The breakfast is standard European fare, which is certainly adequate, if a little basic. There is a wide assortment of breads, meats, cheeses, hard-boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt, cereal, juices, coffee, and tea. My stomach was full every morning, the breakfast sustaining me for several hours of walking and sightseeing until early afternoon for lunch. But perhaps the greatest asset of the Wielopole Guest Hotel is the superb and professional staff. They all speak impeccable English, which is fantastic, considering my Polish is limited to poorly pronounced common phrases. Additionally, they are all extremely friendly, and always willing to help. One good example of this came on the day of my departure. The night before, I notified them that I will be leaving early, before breakfast, and wondered if it would be possible for them to put together a few pieces of bread or something for me to take along, just enough to sustain me until I can buy breakfast at the airport. When I went to check out at 4:45 AM or so, I was presented with a large bag containing a huge meat and cheese sandwich, a container of yogurt, a banana, an apple, and two bottles of water. They consistently went above and beyond the call of duty. I certainly recommend the Wielopole to anyone visiting Krakow, and personally, won't think twice about where I will stay the next time I am in town.
Fantastic central base
this is a brilliant place to stay. its so clean and the staff are all so very friendly.
The hotel is in perfect position for exploring a fabulous city. There is a beautiful restaurant below the hotel which serves delishious food at very reasonable prices.
Our main reason for visiting this magical city was to see the Auschwitz museum, a place i think all should see and learn from. We also visited the nearby salt mine which we booked through the hotel and we found that numerous excursions were on offer and they all picked up across the road from the weilopole.
I would definately recommend this place to anyone travelling to Krakow.
Great little hotel
A truly great little hotel. Small, very centrally located, immaculately clean, good breakfast and very, very helpful and cheerful staff. And all at a budget price.
A lovely touch was the way the maid left either chocolates, biscuits or juice in the room every day, and the freshly baked cookies in reception were delicious - just part of making us feel very welcome indeed.
Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone travelling to Krakow.
