“Rated 4 and proud of it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I liked the place a lot. They have this TripAdvisor rating on their wall, for a reason. It's a great value for the money - not too fancy, affordable, solid 4.
Good rooms, great service, good breakfast.
The only downside - not in the city center. The taxi is dirt cheap, though.

My family of 12 have just returned from this hotel and overall had a very good experience and would highly recommend as excellent value for money. We paid £56 per room per night including breakfast.
We arrived early at 11am and was able to have our cases locked away, we returned just after 1pm as suggested and was able to check in our rooms (an hour early) which was very much appreciated.
The rooms had all you need and was modern and clean and a very good size. There is a nice bar on the top floor with outside seating or you can have a drink on the terrace next to the restaurant.
All the staff were friendly and helpful.
Negatives which are small and definitely do not outweigh the good. The cleaners only cleaned if you put the sign on the door to do so which we didn't discover until the 2nd day and we only had clean towels once in the 3/4 days stay despite doing as said and leaving on bathroom floor for changing. If you ring you get clean ones immediately.
We did not know the Sunday was a public bank holiday so times of bars etc were changed and the main one not even opened, we were not told and came back from the city centre early to go to the bar and it is too far to return all the way back in for an hour so would have been nice to know.
On our last night in the early hours another resident walked into one of our rooms whilst the couple was sleeping, obviously this caused a scare, reception did apologise and admitted giving out the wrong room number and key when checking someone in.
The breakfast wasn't fantastic and the continental was the better option, unfortunately on our stay only 2 our of 4 slots on the toaster worked so this caused a queue as you can imagine.
The area is in a quieter out of town area but there are taxi's all the time outside the hotel main door and it cost approximately £5 to go into the centre, with 4 per car this is very cheap. There is a small shopping mall and other little shops within 5mins walk and a McDonalds and KFC, along with the water park which you get a free hour in.
Week days I think the hotel is mainly used for conferences and business use as we saw lots of this when leaving on the Monday.
All in all clean, modern, and friendly hotel, which all 12 of us said we would definitely return to.

The hotel is situated away from the city centre but in many ways that is a bonus. We had a very pleasant and large room with a great bathroom. Like so many European hotels, the air conditioning does not really do the trick, and e like fresh air, but there was little noise to disrupt our sleep. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was excellent quality and value. The breakfast buffet was also very good.

After many nights spent in poky and horribly expensive hotels in the city center, this time I am...fully satisfied ! Comfortable, modern, with nice staff, spacious rooms and wide range of warm and cold dishes for breakfast. It is located far away from the city center, however - for some ( incl me;-) it is advantage: no problem with parking place ! In a walking distance ( about 1 minute walk ;-) from the hotel there is : cinema, mall and aqua-park, where you can leave your car free of charge. Dinner in hotel's restaurant was delicious. It's rather expensive but worth to spend there some time and money. To sum up: if you are enough with noisy hotels/hostels in the city - this one is a great alternative.

After several stays in one of small hotels in Kraków I found this one at excellent deal price on a reservation portal. Quite far from city center, but during Euro 2012 games it was very good choice and nice alternative.

The room was very spacious, clean, well furnitured, with free fast WiFi. The breakfast buffet was included in the room price and it was extensive with both cold and hot foods. The menu was changing from day to day, so I could have different breakfasts during the 5-night stay.

As the other reviewers have mentioned already, all you need is just around the corner - aquapark, shops, cinema. The hotel offers sauna (free) and other spa facilities (fee). It is also worth to visit a club at the top floor and have a drink at a terrace.

The staff are friendly and both late check-in and early check-out were quick.

We staied there few months ago, it was very cheap room with breakfast so we were happy. Everythink was ok just hotel looked really empty like no guests and no staff( maybe it was one of this days but really i felt weird). Far from city center but next to it is cinema, aquapark, big shopping center, mcDonald and chinese restaurant. For me bed was very uncomfortable and room was a bit scary at night but it was very clean. I could hear cars from outside. Breakfast was ok.

We spent 5 days at this hotel during our summerholiday. The reason for this, was that it was very cheap. We are a family of four, and we got two big rooms for the price of one. But the best of the hotel was that it was just across the large aquapark (Parkwodny). Its cheap to take the taxi to downtown, and the localbus is almost for free just outside the hotel. We recommende this hotel to everyone that think its ok to stay good, cheap and not in the center.
