I had a quick overnight trip to Krakow and wanted to squeeze in as much sightseeing as possible so I opted for the Polonia as it was really affordable. The location is absolutely perfect - steps from the train station and Old Town. My room was a single room, very basic but simple in an old fashioned charming way. It... More

I stayed at Polonia Hotel for 4 days during my second stay in Krakow. We had booked a double room, so I was expecting the usual double bed in a small, European-style room. Instead, we were given a huge corner room with two king sized beds, one of which was in a separate room. The room was a little dated,... More

I only stayed here a night, but the staff was helpful with luggage, spoke english, and the breakfast was great! The room was clean, but the best part was its location: next to the train station, the old center, and the Krakowska mall! Only con, the tram does make some noise at night. Overall very pleased though!

The hotel is located near the main railway station and the big shopping mall, it's also a short walk to the old town square, very convenient. The staff are friendly and attentive, especially a young lady at the breakfast, my little son liked very much the hot chocolate she made for him. Just as other reviews mentioned, the tram noises...

Near bus and rail stations, and an easy walk to the main square. A hotel with an attractive old-fashioned feel, but en suite facilities and the like are perfectly up to date. Delicious herbal smells from the kitchen. Excellent breakfast buffet, including wide range of fruit. Friendly, helpful staff.

I stayed at the Poloia hotel for five days in October during my first visit to Krakow. First of all, the location is absolutely brilliant. I exited the main railway station past midnight with a friend, completely exhausted and tired from a day long journey from India and we immediately spotted the hotel billboard across the road. Dinner was already... More

Hotel Polonia is approx 95 years old and as such, is full of charm, character, style and olde world elegance. I was lucky and had a balcony overlooking the opulent Opera House and the beautiful park which circles the Old Town that is only a five minute stroll away. The hotel is only five minutes away from the Central Station,... More

Hotel Polonia is a little bit outdated, but nevertheless comfortable hotel in a perfect spot. It is located right at the edge of Krakow's ring park which surrounds the medieval and historic centre. Which means that all sights are witin comfortable (max. 40 minutes) walk from the hotel. Rooms are OK, clean, but the streetside rooms can take some streetnoise... More

I am in love with Krakow and choosing Polonia was a nice choice. Our room overlooked the city, we had a view over the St. Maria Church. The hotel location is excellent, 5 minutes from the main railway station to/from where we could take the airport train. Breakfast was excellent, our room and bathroom was clean and the walk to...
