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... More

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... More

Why mixed feelings? I stayed there with my husband, son and daughter-in-law for 3 days and 3 nights. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the presentation and furnishings in the hotel, it was immaculately clean. In fact I would go as far to say it looked like it had been recently refurbished, new carpets etc. and for was definately value... More

We chose this hotel based on a good deal we received. It was everything you expect from this chain in terms of good cleanliness, facilities and polite staff . The breakfast is better than most and well presented. The bar is good value too for a hotel bar. Some of the other writers have commented on the distance from the... More

The rooms were of a reasonable size, clean with modern decor and facilities. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. We only ate breakfast there but the buffet was well stocked and the food of a good standard. The dining room was reasonably large and it appeared to be accommodating some tour bus groups at the time. The hotel overall was... More

The hotel is located on the main ring road around Krakow and is easy to find from the airport. It is fairly close to the city centre and only cost £3.50 in a taxi to get right into the centre. The rooms are what you would expect from an Express Holiday Inn, very clean, comfortable and quiet. There is secure... More
