Krakow, Poland Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Krakow

If your perfect city break involves culture, architecture and beautiful food and drink, then you just have to visit Krakow. Poland’s former Capital City amazes visitors with its attractive streets and historical monuments. Each neighbourhood has its own unique atmosphere; from the culturally generous Old Town, to the vibrant Jewish quarter of Kazimierz. A holiday is never long enough, with so much to explore and enjoy.

Krakow offers a memorable stay to suit all budgets and tastes. Most tourist accommodation is based in the heart of the Old Town or in the City Centre, with all the excitement just a stone’s throw away. For those seeking a luxurious holiday, there is an abundance of 4-star boutiques and hotels. These sophisticated abodes are prominent around the city and are a favourite amongst those who prefer a more stylish retreat. If you are travelling on a budget, or passing through as part of a longer trip, there are many cheap options in this mesmerising city.

Where to stay

Stare Miasto (Old Town)

The infamous Old Town is the vibrant heart of Krakow’s historical culture. Recognised as one of Europe’s most beautiful locations and declared as a World Heritage Site, you will be lost for words at the unforgettable experience this town provides. Roaming the bustling streets, you can take in its charm as well as the delicious aromas of traditional Polish cooking. There are many sights to see, from the gothic bricked architecture of St Mary’s Basilica to the medieval Rynek Glowny, one of the largest market squares in Europe.

Kazimierz (Jewish Quarter)

Known as one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Krakow, this bohemian district is packed with rich history, quirky bars and hip boutiques. Home to one of the most significant Jewish communities, this colourful part of town boasts stunning architecture and an energetic nightlife. A food-lovers favourite, this district is brimming with high spirited cafe culture and stripped down eateries. Be sure to enjoy a beverage at Alchemia, an arty bar that mimics a traditional Polish living room, after a bountiful day of sightseeing and rambling along the Vistula.

Kleparz (Central Alternative)

If you are looking for somewhere close to all the major landmarks that is also set back from the buzz of the tourists, then Kleparz is the place for you. This small, mainly residential district offers a quiet alternative to the City Centre, directly above the lively area of the Old Town. This is the perfect holiday location to immerse yourself in authentic culture and the Polish way of life. Spending your days amongst the locals, you can relax and take in the town’s ambiance. Be sure to visit its market, Stary Keparz, to sample the regional fruits and cheeses and enjoy a beer in one of its many local pubs.

What to see

For the Culture Vultures, Krakow is bursting with opportunities to get your cultural fix on holiday. From the Jewish Culture Festival to the city’s annual Film Festival, the fun never ends. As Krakow was once Poland’s capital, there is an abundance of rich history to explore. Museums, tours and galleries provide ample opportunity to learn of its dark secrets and macabre happenings during World War II. Make sure to pay a visit to Oskar Schindler’s Factory, which exhibits the sombre chronicles of Krakow whilst under Nazi rule.

For the art lovers, pay a visit to the breath-taking Palace of Art, located in the Old Town. To check out emerging artists from the polish art scene, visit the Museum of Contemporary Art. Krakow’s magnificent monuments are dotted around the city, and can be enjoyed by foot. Be sure to see Wawel Cathedral, hosting 18 chapels with outstanding designs. Also, take a stroll down Kanonicza Street, one of Europe's most ancient and most beautiful streets. If you are taking a romantic break with a loved one, seek out the Lover’s Bridge and take part in the ritual of locking in your love for all to see.

Nightlife

Legend has it, that Krakow hosts the highest density of bars and pubs in the world. Wherever you can imagine a watering hole, there probably is one. From cellar pubs to themed bars, Krakow has it all.

For a night out on the Old Town, prepare to be wowed by the vast selection of stylized bars. For the ultimate olde-worlde experience which captures the vibe of Kazimierz, head down to Eszewerias. This bar is for those wanting to step out of the hustle and bustle into a hip hangout with the most romantic of restrooms! For something a bit more upbeat, check out the decedent Mercy Brown in all of its 1920’s glory. This speakeasy style cocktail bar shows off the city’s exclusive artists and artisan tipples. With no signage or obvious entrance, this atmospheric bar located above the Smakolyki restaurant provides a truly exciting experience - once you find it that is! Another one not to be missed is the Starry Port, the city’s only sailor bar. This rum filled, candle-lit nautical themed treat hosts high energy sing-alongs and pirate shenanigans until the early hours.

What to eat

At the heart of Krakow’s cuisine are lavish amounts of herbs and spices, game dishes and wild mushrooms. Make sure you sample some Pierogi, which are dumplings stuffed generously with sweet or savoury fillings. Krakow is also famous for its Zapiekanki which is a pizza-style baguette which definitely hits the spot!

Krakow has a large amount of eateries, offering something tasty for everyone. The local cuisine blends traditional flavours with European influences. For a true Polish holiday, visit the Black Duck and enjoy a Sour Rye Soup in a bowl made of bread or a hearty Bigos Stew. If the weather permits, take the opportunity to sit outside here, as the garden offers a lush green oasis in the summer months.

Shopping

You can find everything you need at Galeria Krakowska, the city’s largest shopping mall located in the Old Town. If you want to avoid the long queues and enjoy a more peaceful atmosphere, head over to Bonarka town centre for a lower key peruse around the shops. Up and down the vibrant streets in the charming district of the Old Town, you can find shops here, there and everywhere. Don’t forget the generous selection of souvenirs available to purchase at the historical landmarks, galleries and museums - these make great presents!

Great location, clean hotel, good breakfast.

This is our second time at this hotel. The location is second to none. The rooms are basic but perfectly clean. The breakfast sets you up for the day and it is a short walk of less than 5 mins to the main square. When we return to krakow in 2012 we will definently be going back to this hotel. Can't recommend the Classic highly enough especially when you consider the price!!!

The best thing about my stay was...

Friendly, Comfortable, affordable, great location

I reviewed a lot of hotels before we went. The Classic Hotel was very reasonable, close to the train station and Market Square. Hotel staff were very friendly and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included and it was very generous. We also went on a trip to the Salt Mines organised from the hotel, I know you can do it cheaper yourself but it was very efficient and convenient. We had been skiing in Poland and really enjoyed a couple of days to relax in Krakow.

Very good value in an excellent location

13th - 17th December 2010 Steph & Gerry The hotel staff were very friendly and spoke excellent english. The room was clean, tidy and spacious. Hotel i deally located for exploring the old town of Krakow and only a five minute walk to the main market square, Rynek Glowny. Planned the visit around trips to both Auschwitz and Wieliczka Salt Mines which we booked through the hotel. Slight downside the breakfast room was small and with full occupancy might be difficult to get a table.

The best thing about my stay was...

The Christmas Market in the Main Square and location of hotel

5 night city break August 2010

Excellent location within easy walking distance to main square, shops and restaurants. Hotel clean, lovely friendly helpful staff, excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. Fruit, cold meats and cheeses, scrambled eggs, salads and hard boiled eggs in horseraddish sauce, lovely!! Our room was extremely quiet although we did meet another couple who were about to change rooms as they hadn't slept since they had been there, due to the noise coming from next door nightclub. Our room was number 202 so try and make sure you get an 02 number as that side of hotel seems to be away from nightclub.

Hotel Classic

We found this an ideal inexpensive base from which to explore Krakow. Located in the Old Town, all the attractions are within a 10 minute walk from the hotel. It is also about 10 minutes walk from the main railway station, making it easy to get to from the airport. The rooms were quite large with modern bathrooms, however the decor and furniture were slightly dated. The breakfast was very good, in particular the fruit selection, although they did tend to run out of some items and not replenish them. The breakfast room tended to get warm even when there wasn't many people in there. The staff were always friendly and corteous. I would stay here again and gladly recommend this hotel to others.

Great location

Great location , within walking distance of almost all sights. Couple of minutes from Old Town Square. rooms large and well equipped. everything spotless. good buffet breakfast, lots of bread, cold meat, cheese and assorted salad. sausages and eggs each morning too plus fruit and yoghurt. Staff have very good english and were very helpful. Bar not open at night but there is a great irish run bar just around the corner which stays open late if you need a night cap. All in all would recommend this hotel for value for money.

Review of 'HOTEL CLASSIC KRAKOW'

Fantastic location on the edge of the old town.<br /><br />Breakfast was ok plenty of cold meats and cheese<br />and one hot dish every day [scrambled eggs etc].<br />Good size room but the bed was not the best we <br />have had. Very good value for the price.
