“if you're interested in Nowa Huta district - go there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

It is a very decent hotel in Krakow's Nowa Huta district. What does it mean? That if you're interested only in the Old Town, King's Castle ans so on - it is too far.
But if you want to know how does "real socialism" in architecture look like, if you want to feel the atmosphere of 50's (20th century, of course) - come and see.
The hotel is typical business hotel - quite big rooms, big beds, decent bathroom and typical gadgets as sewing kit, bath cap and so on. TV, Wi-Fi, brreakfast - nothing special, all in good quality.
The one "failure" of this hotel is that you cannot open windows - there is only a A/C.

Myself and 4 other friends went to Krakow this summer to mark the end of our University lives. I won't lie, we were there to party and trust me Krakow NEVER sleeps.

We ended up booking the holiday for a long weekend on travel republic and actually ended up here by accident. Be careful as there is 3 hotels in Krakow entitled "Centrum". This hotel is however not in the "centrum" of Krakow but in a cultural suburb.

The location is perfect with a 20 minute tram journey taking you from outside the hotel straight into the town centre. You probably had to pay but little is in English and we were never questioned, so free public transport it was.

As you can imagine, when finding out we were heading to a Hotel we knew nothing about we were a little bit more than apprehensive. However luck must have been on our side as the hotels huge rooms decorated with an incredibly classy and modern feel was a fantastic surprise. With floor to ceiling windows ranging at least 10ft high, electric blinds, plasma televisions and walk in shower the hotel is one of the best i have stayed in. It was immaculate and spotlesss throughout the weekend. It's like the hotel room straight out of the hangover and if you with groups of 4 or more there are double rooms which share a hall with two doors off. Phenomanal for our socialising and pre-drinking.

The staff were some of the nicest i have ever come across. The porter was such a lad, he handed us a map and marked out the best clubs and bars before we headed out into the centre. The receptionists were so sweet and the restaurant which we only used for breakfast even made us something when we were an hour late.

Room service was delicious and arrived on a silver platter. Like everything in Krakow it was cheap as chips. You will be hard pushed to spend over £10 on a three coure meal anywhere even in the heart of the centre.

Myself and the lads would go back tomorrow if we had the chance. This article is mainlty dircted at those who want to party. The rave is life changing and all the underground cave clubs are like something out of a James Bond film. For those worried about security we felt safe throughout the whole visit. If i was to advise one thing, it would be to choose your taxi drivers carefully as they don't have SatNav or in fact know where anything is. Check if they know where they are going otherwise they will drive around for hours racking the meter up.

English is rare so be prepared to embrace Polish languag, do some research beforehand and be sympathetic.

My final piece of information is the most crucial of all, BOYS, i have never seen so many beautiful women. The count is easily 3 to 1 against males and they are all stunning, and i have high standards. They're hard work but it's rewarding. If you have a group of lads on a budget this place is the best on earth. Go in the summer too and it's BOILING 35 degrees when we were there, so you may even top up your tan.

You NEED to visit at least ONCE this lifetime.
