This hotel is close to everything in Old Town with easy walking distance to the Main Square, St. Mary's Church, Wawel Castle. Hotel Staff were very friendly and helpful with any questions I had about the hotel or the city. Would definitley return to this hotel if another trip requires me to return to Krakow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EB20009 Great Hotel and Staff
This was the second of two Holiday Inns we stayed at during our 3 week tour of Europe. And it was a decided difference from the 1st hotel in Vienna. Here, the room was large, well appointed, safe and comfortable. There was little noise from the outside or the hallway, so the sleep qualtiy was good. We were greeted as IHG platinum guests, which afforded us an upgrade to the newly renovated guest rooms on the executive wing. The staff was very friendly and good natured. They provided excellend recommendations for food and shopping. By the end of the stay, our only regret was that the stay was too short. This was the sort of experience where you want to return. Although this was a holidy inn, I thought we were in a Crowne Plaza based on the level of service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vigo63 Exceeded expectations.
We arrived at the hotel shortly before midday. We were a party of 8 men on a weekend away celebrating a couple of birthday milestones within our group.
On arrival, only two of our rooms were ready, so those of us who did not have rooms left our bags in one of those that did and we went out into central Krakow for a couple of drinks. This hotel is located a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Krakow.
When we returned to gain access to the final two rooms, it seems that we were fortunate to get higher standard rooms than we were expecting, possibly because there was a conference taking place at the hotel for the duration of our stay. This conference did not impact us in any way.
The room I stayed in was a deluxe studio. It was what I would call large! It had a comfortable double bed as well as a fold out for a third person, so I didn't have to share a bed with my brother!
The room was modern, clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space. The bathroom was clean with a good selection of toiletries. Towels were changed regularly.
One particularly nice touch was the after dinner mint which appeared on our pillows at the end of each day. There are complimentary tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary bottled water provided daily.
Free standard WiFi was available throughout the hotel. You could pay for a faster service, but the standard offering was more than sufficient for our needs. Up to 3 devices could be connected in the room.
The public areas of the hotel were clean and comfortable. We didn't have any meals included in our deal so we did not eat at the hotel at all. We did use the hotel lobby bar a couple of times. The ambiance was quite pleasant.
I'd have no problem in recommending this hotel if you are thinking of staying in Krakow. It has a great location for access to the town centre and exceeded my expectations.
