If you want to stay in Oswiecim, the pickings are slim. I'll give you some of the choices below:
Hotel GALICJA: 3 Star
Hotel OLIMPIJSKI: 2 Star
Hotel KAMIENIEC: 1-Star
I stayed in Oswiecim in order to get a full days worth of touring in. The Hotel Kamieniec meets the basic needs: a roof over your head and meals. The accomidations are closer to a Hostel than Hotel, but it worked out for me. The first nights stay went as planned...early to bed, early to rise. I then toured Auschwitz all day and returned to the hotel. My plan was to take in a second day at Auschwitz, but the first day freaked me out. I then had nightmares that evening so I decided to exit stage left instead of a second days tour. I wanted to skip town via the train, but one of the workers indicated that he would drive me to Krakow for 50 Euros so I decided to go for the road trip.
Unique Quality: No A/C...but that is common in both Eastern and Western Europe. I slept with the windows open on night 1, but the haunting experience of Auschwitz kept those windows shut. I'm a fairly stoic guy who has spent years working in the ER's Trauma Department. I handled Auschwitz very well....considering, but it still freaked me out. I still reflect back upon that experience, but I feel its something we must come to grips with. The president of Iran should stop by and take in the sights...maybe he would change his tune of denial.
The hotel has got six double rooms, six triple rooms, one room capable of accommodating 4 people, and one of 5-people. All rooms have radio, private toilets and bathrooms.
The hotel is beautifully located in the countryside and offers a splendid chance to rest nearby the Sola river. Acces to the city by public bus or taxi.
