We booked this hotel as part of the complete package with flights. At the time we had not read any reviews so had an open mind. We need not have worried, on arrival we were met by very pleasant staff who directed us to our room. We were very lucky as one of our friend is Polish, not from Krakow but she knows it well. She spoke to the hotel and ensured that some of our requests we met. In addition she arranged the transfer with Dream Cabs (+48 880 640140) who were waiting at the airport for our arrival.
We had decided on her recommendation that we would visit the Salt mines - again she arranged this using Comfort Tours (+48 793 719827). They were excellent dropping us off on our return in the Jewish quarter.
Back to the hotel - all our queries and requests were dealt with promptly and nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the restaurant on one evening and my Wife is a vegetarian and asked if she could have one of the starters as a main course. No problem. The food was excellent, not only at dinner but the breakfasts as well. A good selection of hot food as well as cold meats, cheeses, cereal, fruit etc. Enough to keep you going all day!
We never tried any of the other facilities, like the Spa, Sauna.
We never found that the distance into town was a handicap, as the trams ran so frequently in and out of the city and seemed to run from early morning (5.00am) till late, so if you wanted to stay out in the evening there was no problem in getting back to the hotel. Then tram stop is no more than 75 mtrs away. Very convenient.
We will be back to visit Krakow again, this time in warmer climes, September was recommended and we have no hesitation in booking the Sympozjum again.
