3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

I long to meet the interior designers of hotels, such as the Santorini. I suspect that most of these places are designed by the owners, with some romantic ideal in mind. Or maybe they are just preempting their customers wishes. Who knows? I have stayed in many such hotels around the the world but the Santorini is somewhat special when it comes to incongruous. Its location is Nowa Huta, a huge Soviet social engineering project that can only be described as jaw-droppingly misconceived. Without going into details, it covers a vast area in the easternmost district of Cracow, housing some 200,000 people around the now largely shutdown Vladimir Lenin Steelworks. Gray block after gray block for miles. But it does have a historic fascination, if you like Russian Constructivism. What it doesn't have is infrastructure, amenities, tourists or much of a social scene (excepting Teatr Łaźnia Nowa, a bold independent venture into contemporary culture). The Santorini hotel is one of the few hotels in this vast district and attracts the remaining steel executives who come to visit and weddings and funerals. Speaking of which, a wedding on the Saturday night of my visit made sleep pretty much impossible until about 3am. The rooms are comfortable enough and the staff very helpful but the food is, well, I guess Polish. Which is fine except I am a vegetarian and this is a concept that has not reached Greece, sorry, Nowa Huta, yet. Set amid the industrial decay of former times, this Swiss chalet type build, with its faux pas murals and doric columns, can't hide the fact that it is an anachronism in the middle of an enigma. And just to add to this feeling of dislocation there is a little travel agency in the lobby, where you could actually book a trip the real Santorini!

Room Tip: Request a 1st or 2nd floor room because the ground floor rooms back onto a car park/service area.

I am on my last night of a short break to the hotel and can only say its excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are well furnished , warm and cosy, bathroom has good sized shower and everywhere is very clean. the restaurant is excellent with a mix of polish and greek food and very reasonable, breakfast is a mixed bag of hot and cold with great selection of breads, sure to be something for everyone . There is a lap top to use which is free for guests. My only moan is distance from city centre and access from tram stop. The hotel is situated about 8k from city taxi costs around 35 pln about 8 gb pounds but ask the driver. the tram is very cheap 2.8 pln -about 60p(take the no 4tram) but the stop is a good 10-15 min walk along a main road and then a smaller road past the lake and up a rather dark lane. not a good idea to take the tram after dark as the area is less than glam. if you have a hire car or dont mind the taxi fares the hotel is a must-- a little red/pink gem of colour in an otherwise drab area , I will definately be back next year to see everything i didnt have time to see this visit
