“Good hotel, conveniently located for automobile travellers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights in a standard double room. Roms were clean. Staff is open and friendly.

This place is exellent if you're travelling with a car and want to take daytrips in the area [Auschwitz, salt mines, Zakopane] because it is close to the A4, but far enough not to hear the noise. It is a 10-15 minute drive into the city, or 5 minutes to the Cinema complex on Zakopianska where there is a tramline close by.

Shower is high enough for people of 1.90m in length. Wifi coverage is good, there is an OPEN connection (no password required), and internet connection speed topped out at 4 Mbit.

Comfortable, good value hotel, 15 min taxi ride from the centre of Krakow but also reachable by tram and handy for the A4 if you have a car. Nice quiet location but also close to a modern shopping centre.
Staff very helpful and friendly.
Stayed here 3 times now.

Hotel is conveniently located for the travellers with their own car - near the A4 motorway and E77 road in a peaceful and quite area. Although it can take over 30 mins to get to the centre from there.
Rooms looks quite simple but this is only a first impression. Later you can realize that everything you need is there. Bathroom is quite big and clean. Service is good and staff is very friendly.
Breakfast is marvellous, really good variety of cold and hot meals, fruits, cereals and other snacks.

Have just returned from a 4 day break in Krakow and staying at the Hotel Kontrast and we can not do anything but say how good it was. A small but friendly hotel just 15 mins drive from Krakow city centre so handy enough to enjoy the city sights but far enough out of it to be able to switch off!
Great service with nothing too much to ask and everything done in such a friendly way. The breakfasts were excellent and a great start to the day before heading out to see the local tourist attractions.
All in all a great hotel and at such good value we'll be booking again soon

Hotel Kontrast is my usall one night stop in Cracow. It was visited by me both on business and private trips to Cracow.
Reasonable rpdice for comfy hotel located close to road to Zakopane and 20 minutes drive to city centre.
I could also recommend a good variety of tasty dishes form Trzech Kucharze ( Three Cooks ) Restaurant which is located in lef wing of the hotel.
