Perfectly adequate for those with modest needs

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 17, 2006

I booked the Wyspianski for its location - it is across the road from the Planty which runs round the old city of Kraków and very centrally located. From it I found that I could vist all of the major attractions on foot - the walk into the city centre to the market place is only 5-10 minutes walk. Having previously been a popular hostel-like establishment, the Wyspianski is now a three star hotel with modest conference facilities and a restaurant. I opted to only have breakfast in the hotel - the breakfast was good with a good range of things to have, and good coffee and fruit juices. My room - a single in a twin room was perfectly adequate - with TV (although Polish and German channels only) and a bathroom with shower en-suite. It was plenty big enough and comfortable and was more than adequate for my modest needs. I booked on to get a very good rate approx EUR 72 per night - which was well within my budget.

Directions: About 900m from the station - close to the Planty and the old city.

Right in the Middle of Everything!

This 3 star hotel is right in the middle of everything! Directly across the street is the Planty. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the Old Town Square and about 10 minute or so walk to the main train station and the bus station ( which is very handy if you plan on visiting Zakopane and Czestochowa). Also , there is a tram stop right in front of the hotel . Additionally, if you plan on taking any daytours to places such as Wieliczka Salt Mine or Auschwitz-Birkenau, the bus for these tours stops at the right hand side of the hotel promptly at 8:50 every morning . You can buy your tickets on the bus. No advance booking is required.

The hotel itself is nice with polite , helpful staff. My room was a little on the small side, but clean and cozy. It had a TV, hairdryer and comfy down pilllows and comforter. The shower was warm with good water pressure.

I was quite happy with this hotel. So much so, that my parents are planning a trip to Krakow later this year and I booked this hotel for them.

Unique Quality: The included breakfast is different. If you are a big meat eater you will love it, especially if you enjoy jellied meats, sausages, dried fish etc. But for a person like me, who doesn't eat meat, there was still quite a variety to choose from such as fresh fruits, breads, cheeses, cereal and pastries. I have no complaints.

Loverly, clean, and well run hotel only 5mins from the main square.
the staff at reception are especially welcoming and spoke English very well although the bar maids could do with a humour injection !!
The rooms are quite spacious and cleaned daily
the hotel foyer were spotless

The only downfall is that the hotel does cater for groups of mid to late teenagers and that some customers in the middle of them could be upset by the noise of shrieking and of the running up and down the corridors.

would I return to the Wyspianski ?


Unique Quality: The restaurant according to the other guests was very good but i personally didnt use it due to the Vodka induced coma that made me sleep through my alarm clock,... ahem!

when travel to cracow, me and my good friend ola, stumbled across a nice hotel named hotel wyspianski. it is located right in the heart of old town cracow and is in walking distance of everything. i found the price to be very reasonable for its location so i was more then happy to dish over the cash.

the staff didnt speak much english, barely any english at all as i recall, but ola is from poland and speaks the language so that didnt matter to us.

the rooms were nice and i found the whole hotel to be clean and very pleasant.

Unique Quality: i always laugh when i think of this hotel. i remember the room we got had 2 single beds. at the time me and ola were dating and as a joke i asked where she was sleeping. she jumped into one of the beds and got comfortable and said "this one" in a cute voice. just as she siad that. she spilt her coca-cola all over her bed and jumped up instantly and said just as fast "i mean i am sharing a bed with u"

Directions: if u are arriving from the main train station. head directly south down westerplatte street and u wil find it about a half mile on your left.

Right across the street from Old Town

Location, location, location...several blocks from the train station, a short enough taxi ride in from the airport, and right across the street from Old Town and all that that entails!

Unique Quality: Great view, yes, I saw and heard the Cathedral right outside my window! Really big rooms for the money, too! Towel warmers in the bathroom!!

85 $ for a double room

Unique Quality: About a year ago it was the cheapest place to stay. Now it's completely renovated, the standard and the prices are higher. A pity though, cuz it was a good place, very close to the Old Town where you could stay for about 25 $. I guess we don't have any of these cheap hotels anymore. Wanna comfort, gotta pay for it... ;-)
