The Hotel and Staff were excellent. It's location is in the suburbs a 10-15 min taxis journey into the centre of Krakow. As a wheelchair user the facilities were good, however the toilet is free standing so good balance is required. I am 5ft 8inc and my feet didn't touch the floor in the bathroom. Good value for money.

Perfect hotel for me to visit Krakow. For just 4 zloty (a little more than 1 euro), you can take a shuttle to the center. You can return for even less money by taking the well organised public transport in Krakow. Very clean hotel, good food in the restaurant, very polite reception desk. Just one little detail: the extremely repetitive...

We stayed at the Hotel Express by Holiday Inn, Krakow while travelling on an Archers/Cosmos Eastern European tour in June 2008. As I did not know the actual cost of a room I could not assign value because expected quality must be related to price. This hotel was perfectly adequate for a good quiet night’s sleep with reasonably comfortable beds...

Not wanting to drive into central Krakow and seeking secure parking for our new Avis car, we chose this newer, modern Holiday Inn, easily reached on the major east-west highway E77. On arrival we were greeted by friendly, helpful, multilingual staff, and in no time were we checked into our non-smoking ground floor room. Our car was parked on-site in...

Me and my friends had to go to Katowice so this was an ideal place to rest our heads. Nothing glamorous. Just functional. Does the job but if you want a full Krakow holiday then choose something closer to the centre. These are great prices though.

Spent two nights at this hotel during a break in Krakow. It is an excellent 'budget' hotel, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is fine but would be a little tiresome after more than two days. It is away from the centre of Krakow but this is why the rates are good. The 'shuttle bus' is a laugh. If you ask what...

A nice hotel to stay at. Bit of a way out of the city centre but easy to get there and back. You can book the shuttle for 4zlty per person one way or if you are prepared to walk a short distance (crossing a very busy dual carriageway) you can get the local bus service no.130 (2.50 zlty) with...

No stay in a Holiday Inn Express is every going to be a memorable one. Their locations are rarely in the most attractive places and the best description for them is functional. My stay here was for a return appointment at the dentist so a location near town centre was never going to be an issue. Also the chance to...
