You will find the Grand Sal **** Hotel exactly in the picturesque St. Kinga Park. The hotel is situated next to the Danilowicz shaft by means of which tourists enter the historic corridors of the Mine. The building of the former Saline Baths existing at the turn of the 20th century was reconstructed to become a luxurious hotel. Its interior emphasizes the hotel’s links with one of the most beautiful and unique places in the world which is the Salt Mine in Wieliczka. Grand Sal**** Hotel offers 18 rooms of the highest standard and 1 apartment with a view towards the historic park and water fountain. Toiletries produced from Wieliczka salt are a pleasant surprise found in every hotel room. The Grand Sal restaurant serves chef de cuisine dishes as well as the specialties of the regional Malopolska cuisine and various European dishes. The picturesque and idyllic hotel surrounding, the adjacent historical Mine and the elegant hotel interior all allow our guests to find peace and quiet permitting them to rest completely. On the other hand conferences and various kinds of meetings can take place in a most extraordinary environment.

The hotel is located inside a beautiful park, next to the Salt Mine. Rooms are very quiet, prices are reasonable but the best part is the staff: everyone was extremely professional, attentive and courteous. We'll definitely return for sure.

We stayed in the hotel because we wanted to visit the salt mines. Our room was stunning. Beautiful and well maintained. We looked over the park. Car park is for free and behind the hotel. The food in the restaurant is fine. Fair pricing. Entrance for the salt mines is just 100 meters. We bought our tickets online.

I visited the restaurant with my girlfriend and father. We first ordered an appetizer, and 3 glasses of red wine. Then a waitress came with 3 appetizers, and I sai, we didn't order them, but she said yes yes, so we figured out, that these appetizers were on the house, but I mean still, and explanation of why and what the appetizer was, would have been very, especially since it was salmon, and we would like a glass of white wine for the fish. so we then ordered 3 glasses of white wine, just to sit and wait for them, until the waitress walked by our table, and realised that she had forgotten about our wines... minor detail.. after that, my girlfriend, got her appetizer served, which was good, but at the same time, we got 2 bowls off soup with dumplings served, me and my father.. with no spoon.. which we didn't order, so we got a little confused. 1 minute after, another waitress comes to our table, and says sorry, she made a mistake and took the bowls of soup to another table. then after that, we all got our main course at the same time. unfortunately, my father ordered Golonka, but a lamp tenderloin was placed in front of him. He asks the waitress, what is this, because this is not golonka.. and then she says sorry, my mistake, takes the dish, and comes back after 3 minutes and says, we have no more of that dish, you have to choose something else. so he had to choose another dish... I ordered a beef tenderloin, medium rare, and when I cut through my tenderloin, it is more than well done, literally.. so I tell the waitress, that I'm not happy with the way, that is has been prepared, and that I will get a new. at that point I'm a little frustrated and say, I don't think this service is okay, and then the waitress says, you don't have to pay for a new dish. ( i mean, who would ever pay for a second dish when you didn't get the first dish prepared as you ordered. my girlfriend's main dish was okay, the second dish my dad got, was a duck leg with carrot mash, that was overdung by the taste of orange and the duck still had feathers on. my tenderloin second time, was maybe between medium and well done, and at that point, I was so hungry, I didn't want to complain anymore. as an excuse, my father got a glass of wine, because they wouldn't tell him, that they were short of the dish he ordered and just made something else, without telling him. they made a dessert for me, plumbs in wine, but it was terrible, im sorry to say. we ordered a cheese plate for dessert, which was okay, except that we had to remind the waitress, that we would like to have the jams, that comes with the dish because they had forgotten that also... we spend 2 and a half hour there, and not one single time, did they ask us, is everything good? do you need something to drink? we had to call them every single time we needed a refill. my girlfriend sat 1 and a half hour with empty glasses, and they didn't ask her one single time, if she needed something to drink. I'm sorry to say, but for a restaurant, that aims that high, and with those nominations, I was soooo disappointed, both from food and service.. and on top of it, the reception was unable to get hold of a taxi for us, so we had to walk home in rain. not comming there again.

We didn't stay in the hotel, we only ate in the restaurant. It was a nice setting and the staff were nice. Service was quick and attentive, in my opinion food was a little pretentious and lacking taste. I prefer a home cooked polish (or which country I'm in) style food. If you like posh nosh, I'm sure it'll be right up your street. The local beer was very good. But unfortunately, the food was a no for me, if I were to return to the salt mine I would make other food arrangements as I feel it would give me better value for money and quality. Lovely people, just not for me, sorry guys x

Location is perfect when visiting in Salt Mine, jus a few steps away. Staff was very polite and spoke good english. Breakfast was good with a lot of choices. The patio is very nice place to enjoy your breakfast with nice park and fountain views. Room was airy, very peaceful. Bathroom was clean and shower very good. Highly recommend! You cant actually drive to the hotel from Park Kingi street. Follow the signs to the other side of the park and drive in to the hotel parking area.

It was great experience visiting this hotel that is situated just by the main entrance to Wieliczka Salt Mine. The hotel is beautiful with exceptional people working there. The receptionists were very helpful and kind. The hotel was very clean. Very spacious rooms with a great view. The hotel is situated in a big park, in a very quiet area. Highly recommended.

We visited this hotel today before exploring the saltmine. We ordered two hot drinks and a dessert. The waitress arrived with three hot drinks. After ten minutes we asked about the cheesecake, none of the staff knew. After another ten minutes we asked again. The bar staff were very unhelpful and frankly didn’t care. When we asked to speak to a manager they sent a chef out from the kitchen. He had nothing to say. This is a 4star hotel with 0star service. Would not recommend!!!

Before and after staying overnight in the salt mine, we enjoyed meals at the hotel. 1. Location - the best 2. Food - great 3-course dinner and equally good breakfast buffet 3. Cost - the value was great for the food we received. But - I'd advise you to buy bottled water somewhere else because this price kills even the dead men 4. Staff - The waiters' attitude was quite unpleasant. 5. Restrooms - in the basement so you have to walk down the stairs which matters when it comes to elderly people, if I recall well they had an elevator but for some reasons we didn't use it. Clean though. 6. Parking - there is a possibility of parking a bus within hotel's properties

We booked a tour of wieliczka salt mine and Hotel Grand Sal for the night, located in a park setting and walking distance to the mine, beautifully decorated clean and comfortable rooms, with access to sauna, hot tub and SPA services on bottom floor. Staff were friendly and very attentive to all our needs. We had a great much needed restful stay. Thank you
