Good location

Just five minutes walk from the old town square of Krakow. We were put in a room designed for disabled people. So there was no bath, just a shower. We arrived very late in the day so couldn't be bothered to complain or ask to move rooms once we had unpacked.. Main courtyard was under reconstruction so the ambiance shown in the photographs was missing.

Cold & Noisy

We were a party of 3 and were given a double room with a single bed put right next to the double as there was nowhere else for it to go. The room was freezing cold and the heating did not work. We complained and reception sent someone up, who said leave it half an hour and it will get warm. We went out for a couple of hours and the room was still freezing. Again we complained and again they said to leave it to warm up. We ended up staying in the room that night, but not getting much sleep because of the cold, and then getting woken very early by the building work going on in the hotel. We aksed them to move us to another room in the morning - we did get a free breakfast from them, but please note we had to ask for it!

Great location

The Holiday Inn Krakow City Centre is approx a 15 min taxi ride away costing approx 89 zloty. Taxis are metered so no need to haggle. The taxi driver will no doubt point out various buildings of interest along the way adding to the journey. The hotel is in a great location, approx 250m from the main square and approx a 10 min walk to the Jewish quarter. Both areas have an abundance of bars and restaurants all with great atmosphere. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing being too much trouble for them. The room I had on the third floor was huge with also a big bathroom. Both room and bathroom were clean, the room being comfortable heating wise and the bed and bedding clean and comfy. There was a large flat screen tv available and a well stocked mini bar. Complimentary bottles of water replaced daily was a nice gesture. The complientary bathroom products were Dove, so no need to bring your own products for short stays. Wifi was available in the room with a code accessed from the tv. There is building work at the hotel but noise was not an issue in the room I had. Due to the building work on the restaurant, breakfast is being served in a makeshift room just off the bar area. The food selection looked to be a reduced selection and to be honest at 60 zloty, thought this to be too much. Therefore, needless to say, we did not breakfast at the hotel. I have no doubt once the building work is complete and breakfast is once again being served in the restaurant the 60 zloty will be a good price. Overall, a great hotel in a fabulous location. I will certainly be staying here again in the future.

Krakow trip

Very nice hotel, within walking distance of the main square. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was a bit expensive and free wifi in the lobby. You have to use a cable modem to use the internet in the room.

Terrific hote, terrific location

The hotel is very short walking distance to Stare Miasto, and all the sights, attractions, and restaurants around the main square. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating, and all spoke English so communication was not a problem. The little courtyard in front of the hotel keeps it away from street noise, and the hotel was very quiet on the whole.

Lackluster

The location of this hotel was perfect, but the rest of the hotel experience was lackluster. We felt rushed at check-in and check-out, i.e. the receptionist just wanted to get rid of us, the small, dark, bathroom in our "executive" room had zero counterspace and thus the toilet was way too close to the sink area--with the toilet brush suspended right between--gross. The A/C did not cool our room--so we basically had the fan of the unit blowing the whole time. The internet was intermittent, and staff were unapologetic when it did not work--only confirming, "Yup, it must be down" when we'd inquired. Our overall impression of the people in Krakow was pleasant, as they do cater to toursists, yet this hotel -- supposedly the "creme de la creme" in Krakow--is kind of a joke. Parking was 70 Zloty (about 20 Euro) per night which I thought was high for Poland, and breakfast wasn't included in the rate either. Guests can do much better out on the town locally for a delicious breakfast for circa 20 Zloty vice 60 which this hotel charged--preposterous!

Can't complain...much

The location of the hotel was great. It was close to the Cloth Hall, Wawel castle and even a taxi rank. However, it was not very close to the train station (at least a 15-20 min walk, not great with luggage). The service was exceptional and friendly. We had no complaints. The room, especially for Europe was very spacious and clean and comfortable. The only beef I had was the lack of wifi in the rooms. You could only connect via cable and my very thin Mac Air does not allow cable connection. I know that's not true of all computers but a wifi connection would just be more convenient, especially since the lobby and bar area did have wifi. However, I would highly recommend this hotel. They even arrange car and driver to take you on various sightseeing trips. The prices were not bad either.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

There are lots of excellent dining places in the city but the one we really enjoyed was dinner at Ariel in the jewish quarter near the Remu synagogue. It's an old rabbi's house now a kosher restaurant and the food was really quite good. For movie buffs, the hotel attached to this restaurant (also Ariel) was where Steven Spielberg stayed while filming Schindler's List.
