3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Arrived yesterday to my dismay...the room has no A/C and it is quite hot. So I asked for a fan....room still very hot, and was difficult to sleep. Other problem is the curtains do not block out the double set of extra bright street lights at night. Thank goodness the windows block the street noise (when closed) but are the... More

Fantasic hotel with regards location and expectations. Porter was available on check in to help with the bags and lift. Breakfast was good quality with a variety of hot and cold, with other things such as cake etc. The room was large and tall, quite basic, with an immaculate bathroom, which is all one could want when in a city...

Four very good friends went to Krakow for a birthday! We chose the Polonia hotel because it was reasonably priced and centrally located. We reviewed this on trip adviser before the holiday and there were mixed reviews. The hotel is fairly old fashioned but the rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast is average but there is a large selection... More

I was in Krakow on a busy weekend and my first two choices were unavailable. I love this location - being next to the train station is my perfect spot, so I won't fault Polonia for being in the best part of town. The building is old, with a lot of charm. It's quaint, but it's not modern. Doors don't... More

Stayed in the central suite 3rd floor and had a brilliant time. Restaurant at the polonia is the best value in Town. Breakfasts are terrific and the staff are wonderful = really helpful Trams rumble and the hotel shakes a bit when they pass - so if you are looking for a hotel in the centre of a busy city... More

Our room was facing the courtyard, so noise was not a problem. Food was good. Location was the best. Decor: Faded glory. One of the rare hotels in Poland that has an elevator. When I asked the desk to call a cab to the airport, their first response was to call the expensive, 80 PLN option. I asked for a... More

A key part of the criteria when researching for a suitable hotel in Krakow for a seven night stay in mid May was location, location, location....... That is precisely where the three star Hotel Polonia scores being situated within just a few minutes easy stroll of the cafes/restaurants, art galleries, museums of the old town, whilst also only a very...

The hotel is handy to the railway and bus station and old town. The room was small but clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. There is a lot of tram traffic nearby but I only heard the occasional distant rumble. Breakfast was good and plentiful. All entries are up short staircases.

We missed out on getting our room cleaned one day,beds were not made etc, don't like paying for a service I am not getting, did inform reception but was not too bothered and blamed the maid, good location is about the only thing by going for it
