“Great Staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We had a lovely time at this hotel. It was a bit farther out from the main attractions but the location itself was excellent. If you cannot get on with the local cuisine there is a Carrefour complex about a mile away where there are take aways etc. Our only complaint was there seemed to be a local car dealer meeting while we were there,(Something to do with Audi) the result of this was several 'Wannabees' strutting around the hotel accompanied by what looked like extras from the Men in Black complete with sunglasses followed by a cameraman constantly snapping away. While I can put up with this behavior what I did not like was the children who were part of the entourage taking vast quantities of food away from the breakfast table, sorting through it then returning it back for other guests to eat!!!! The staff were unaware of this but with the apparent self importance of the car dealer entourage it did nothing to enhance the Audi brand image. Mosquitoes were also a big problem but this was nothing to do with the hotel. Overall it was clean and friendly just don't go when Audi are there!

Room Tip: The food we eat at the main square was probably the worse we have ever eaten.........appalling. The...

The hotel is located in the quiet neighborhood, which helps to rest and relax. The rooms were tidy, very nice and had AC. The service was excellent, very helpful and knowledgeable about nearby attractions. We paid $2 extra for breakfast and it was the best decision we made, the food was delicious. I highly recommend Farmona Hotel Business & Spa in Krakow.

The hotel has a spa and garden. The services were excellent. The restaurant food and its presentation were excellent. We ate the diners at the garden. I recommend this place if you visit Krakow. Yes, it is outside of normal tourist like to stay but we chose after the trip advisor's review. The place is approx. 25 min. away from the city center and taxi cost us 35 zt from the train station. Tram 8,10 and 22 goes near the hotel but you have to walk ~10 min or take a taxi.

We took Auschwitz and the salt mine tour. Tour operator pick us up from the hotel and dropped off. We took the tram and tour the city. Sauna is free for the guest when the spa closed. It is a great place relax, We stayed 4 days but first day we just stayed hotel and relaxed.

Hotel
A very quiet "parkland" setting that is only a 30 zloty taxi ride from Krakow centre. A modern and immaculately presented building with a relaxing spa feel. The hotel also has a private, walled garden that can be accessed via the dining room.

Rooms
Reasonably sized with firm but comfortable beds. Very clean and comfortable with plenty of storage and an in room safe.
Bathrooms are clean and modern with plenty of high quality toiletries made by the company that owns the hotel.
TV could do with more channels and the pillows are a little flat but these are my only minor negative comments.

Food
First class. Breakfast is buffet style with most tastes catered for from smoked fish to sausages via eggs, cheese and cold cuts of meat.
Dinner here was also excellent with a carefully chosen menu cooked beautifully and served well. I particularly liked the calf cheeks and for dessert the fresh donut balls and ice cream went down well also. Both food and drink are reasonably priced. The bar is well stocked with well trained staff. All cocktails are well made with great attention to detail.

Staff
Very friendly and attentive. The receptionists ordered taxis for us each morning and even organised an Auschwitz tour. Everyone was really professional and courteous from front of house to cleaners.

Summary
Whilst the distance from the centre of town may put some people off, it is only a 10 minute taxi ride from Krakow centre and given the mixed reviews of some of the city centre hotels well worth the £7 taxi fare in order to stay in comfort.
I heartily recommend this hotel.

Our 4 night stay here was an absolute please with the staff being courteous and friendly. It is only a short taxi ride into the centre of Krakow but it felt as if you were in the middle of no where as it was so quiet and peaceful in its park gardens. The food was a delight both in presentation and taste that we tried to taste everything from the menu. The breakfast was off a high standard giving options to everyone. We went for 2 spa treatments and these have to be the best massages and hot stones treatments that there is - everyone should try them. The receptionists were very helpful and were able to organise trips without any problems.

We stayed here during New Year's Eve and were really satisfied. Everyhing was very good, rooms were clean and cosy, staff were very friendly and helpful and the highlight of the stay were delicious rich breakfast. Although the hotel is a bit out of the city centre, the surroundings are nice and quiet, including nice park next to it. The advantage is also safe place for parking a car just behind the hotel.

The hotel is not in the city center, I choosed it because it's on the road to where I had to go. This allows to have better value for manue compared to the center of Cracow. The rooms are confortable and clean, the personnel very kind, it has a restaurant which is open till 22.00 which saved our dinner a couple of times. The breakfast buffet and the restaurant menu could be improved, in my opinion, but still more than decent compared to what you get in Cracow, especially if you get caught by a tourist - trap restaurant (and there's a lot...)
Unfortunately I didn't have the time to try the SPA treatments and the sauna, which are for sure a plus (sauna is for free), but the SAP area is very nice. Reccomended especially if you are travelling by car and if you are on the route from/to Zakopane; however publi transportations is only a few minutes walking from the Hotel. Even it was Easter, it was snowing, so i couldn't appreciate the outside area of the hotel, but I believe in summer it's very nice and enjoyable. I would definitely come back.
