      the location was very good and the reception staff apart from the first evening we booked in were very good. One of the reception staff printed an email for me and I much appreciated this

      we booked in c. 21:30 on Monday 26th July 2010 after a long journey, the receptionist was very rude as was the porter. The room was extremely disappointing and the curtin fell down the minute we tried to close it. The receptionist worked out how much per night I was paying in front of me on a piece of paper and when I requested to move room as the curtin fell down, she could not 'understand' me. The rude porter tried to fix the curtin, it fell down every night for the 3 days?? We were only in Krakow for 3 days so I did not push moving the room the next day, we were in Room 16, you could not walk around the bed and if you we heavy you would have had trouble getting into the bed. We had been in better 3 star hotels in Venice & Berlin.

      proximity to old town

      Either very noisy view of the park or poor view. No air conditioning has seen better days. Breakfast mediocre.

      Charming hotel with a hint of fin de siecle atmosphere, generally friendly staff, great location - halfway between the train station and the market square, good breakfast consisting of a selection of Polish meats, cheeses, scrumbled egg available on request, etc.

      The only problem was instead of a double bed we got two single beds pushed together, but this is a minor point.

      It was close and convinient to railway station and old town city centre

      It is an old hotel and some places show this. The bathroom was small and not well ventilated and the taps were very hard to turn off as well as the hot water not always being available. I would recommend on a "conditional basis".

      the location was perfect. near the station, bus and old quarter.

      breakfast was fair only. Quality of the room was poor, very old furniture in need of scrapping. no international TV channels. Tiny old TV. the room vibrated whenever a tram passed by the window. this began at 5 o'clock a.m.approx. you were awakened by it. this must have long term impact on the structure. Earthquake proof !!!!!!

      We enjoyed our stay very much at Hotel Polonia from February 5th-9th. Reception service and meals were excellent. The room over-looking the ice-skating ring was brilliant and very central to all locations. We would have appreciated at least one English channel on our tv. As it turned out channel one was very disruptive so as this was a Polish news channel it was a bit annoying - this was in room 78! We definately want to book another 5 days sometime late March -April time. Thankyou again for your homely hospitality we experienced from all the staff. Do dobaczenia! Alvin & Jozefa Knight

      The hotel has an excelllent location , very close to both the city centre and also the main train and bus staions

      Windows in my single room were single glazed and due to being right beside a main road and tramline , it was very noisy throughout the night.
