On a deserted street and a 10 minute walk to tram
Well, we got this hotel through a "deal" with Austrian Airlines. Our room was a double - but like a dorm. We are a married couple and were given two single beds on opposite sides of the room We requested a real double when we saw this, but were told they were sold out for 2 months so they had no other rooms available. We had booked on July 2nd and were there on September 16th, so you'd think that would have given them enough time to book us a real double room. Needless to say, we were annoyed, but figured we were only there for 3 nights (and then were transferring to the Hotel Maltanski), so no big deal. However, the hotel is two long blocks from a main street where you catch the tram. At night this street is totally deserted as it's across from a tram yard. Walking down this at night was a bit unnerving (and we're from NYC). Breakfast was good. We ate dinner there 2 nights and that was good too. Very reasonable. Front desk people were generally helpful, but their command of English was only fair and so some of our questions could not be answered. Not too good on the computer, either. We tried some admittedly poor Polish on our part. It didn't help.
Bottom line - If you want a reallly cheap place, away from the Centrum and don't mind a long dark walk at night (or take a taxi) and the inconvenience of being far away from the center (no quick 4PM naps back at the hotel), then it's OK.
A Hidden Gem
This is fairly new hotel, with clean rooms, a bar , free guarded car park and a restaurant. It appears to be used by business persons and middle aged guests, and has a quiet calm feel about it. The staff are helpful, polite and most are in uniform. There are seatting areas on all floors and each room come with a fridge. The hotel is really nice but it is in a business area. The area therefore has no restaurants, bars or shops in the immediate vicinity. There is a Macdonalds on the main Zakopane Road about 500 m away from the hotel or going out of town about 1500 m is a shopping centre with cinema.
Unique Quality: This is an inexpensive, modern hotel with good facilities at a very reasonable price for this area.
Directions: Off the main Zakopane road. It is signposted for drivers
In Dezember 2004 I stayed in a hotel in Krakow, which at that time was contrary to my usual idea of staying in private accomodation on my travels.
I chose the two-starred Hotel Rokk as a base for my 5 days in Krakow. My single room was equipped with a private bathroom and a TV-Sat. A basic buffet style breakfast was included in the price of 25 Euro per night.
I booked the hotel through http://www.travelpoland.com/, which offered the best discounts for the place.
Directions: The hotel is located in a quiet area about 2 km south of the city centre. The trams No. 10 and 8 stop about 400 m from the hotel (tram stop: Rzemieslnicza). Apart from that, several buses serve the area.
