“Great Stat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2010

Great hotel, approx 15mins walk from the Square. Arrived approx 11.00am, checked in and given key to great room if a little basic, but very clean, over looking Castle (room 17). You have to ask for a hairdryer but that not a big deal.
Breakfast usual selection of cold meats, breads, sausages and scrambled eggs. Didn’t eat in the restaurant so cannot comment on that.

I would stop at this hotel again, staff very friendly

Got this hotel as part of package with flights out of belfast -- very cheap for 4 nights just before Easter -- excellent location 15mins nice relaxed walk to town square beautiful view across river of Castle.

Rooms basic but clean - well serviced everyday
Breakfast very basic diluted juice, warm frankfurt sausages or luke warm scambled eggs, selection of some breads + "veg" peppers etc cereal+ limited cheese's
We had dinner in hotel resturant 1 night and it was excellent and not to expensive and has a beautilful view of castle

I can recommend the Auschwitz tour and we also did the Jewish tour but unfortunatley Schindler's factory was not open --due to open in june2010.

The castle was a good day out aswell + there is a Dragon's Lair unfortunenatley it wasn't open either we missed the opening by 1 day

If you are looking for shopping or somewhere to go on a rainy day there is a very good large shopping mall near town square good selection of shops -- some designer shops but quite expensive

We loved Krakow and would go back to this hotel purely for beautiful location on riverbank however if you can get it even cheaper by not including breakfast it would be extremely good value + its not too far to walk + eat out for breakfast

I was very impressed with this hotel, spotlessly clean, great service and food to die for. Make sure you get a room with a river view because the view is stunning. It’s a ten to fifteen minute walk to any of the three main areas of the city and the staff all speak English and are very helpful.
The only faults where very very minor ones like no plug in the sink, no lock on the toilet door and for some reason no bin in the room but there was one in the toilet. On the first night we did have to complain about the noise coming from a group of drunks on a bench by the riverside under our window but they where moved on by the police within minuets of us complaining to the reception.
I hate to point out these faults because this hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed in and for the location the price was unbelievably cheap so we would highly recommend The Poleski to anyone.

We have just returned from a short break at the hotel Poleski. It is a quiet hotel a short walk from the centre. Approximately 15mins but in nice weather this is not a problem. It is across the river from Wawel Castle. The view is amazing. The rooms have full length windows so you really can appreciate the view. The rooms are spacious and beds comfy. The roof top terrace offers good food and drinks at very reasonable prices and again with a fabulous view. Try the static balloon it gives a good view over Krakow.( A short walk from the hotel) Breakfast was basic but good. Cold meats, cereals, pastries, yogurt and choice of scrambled or sausages. Tea, coffee and orange juice was also served. The staff were very friendly and helpful, you can borrow an iron or hairdryer from reception.
I am pleased we chose this hotel as our base and would highly recommend if you are happy to have a short walk to the centre.

We booked the Poleski Hotel after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. This hotel is located across the river from the old town of Krakow. It is easy to find, has free parking, and if you book a river view room, you have a beautiful view of the old castle and the river. The wireless internet connection is not the best, but it did work enough for our needs. The staff at the Poleski were very helpful and most spoke good English. We did eat several evening meals in their restaurant. They were okay and again the restaurant staff was very helpful. They have a very nice rooftop terrace where it is nice to go, have a drink, maybe a light meal and relax after a busy touring day. The breakfast bar is excellent. We had no problem walking across to the old town, and it was always nice to return to a quiet location.

we have just returned from a 4 days trip to Krakau, with a stay at Poleski hotel.
The rooms are more than ok, the view is excellent from some rooms. Nr 9 is not so ok, 12 has the best view. First ask to see the room (some rooms have a tree just in front of the window)
The food : breakfast is very basic, supper is splendid for its price. Various meat, fish and pasta courses. From 18 € to 40 € .The lounge at the reception-desk is too small, especially for waiting : taxi, friends..
The staff is very kind and friendly, the roomservice is ok.
It's a very quiet hotel. A walk to the city center takes 30 mlinutes. A taxi 20 NPL (5 €). Going on foot : leave hotel and go straight to the river bank (the backside of Japaneese museum). At the riverbank, go to the right , cross the bridge (Most Grunwaldzki)and walk along the water to Wawel, leave Wawel on you left and to the right to Grodzka wich brings you straight to market Place.
