“a good place for a city trip”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We spent 5 days and 4 nights in Krakow and stayed at Pollera hotel which we booked online. Their price is quite high for the country but you can get good deals via internet. That is waht we did and we were very happy with everything : good location, still in the old city but not too noisy, very good breakfast, large, clear and clean rooms. Comfort is not on the 'modern' range but alltogether we loved it and would recommend it !

Perfect location for all tourist spots ,museums,churches,castles and shopping. Close too railway and bus station and convenient for trams to different areas of town. The staff was very helpful,polite and accommodating, Our bedroom was clean and comfortable and well serviced during our stay. The breakfast was typically Polish , quite good with adequate choice. The decor was in keeping with the age of the building with wonderful sweeping staircase,antique furniture and paintings and great stain glass window. Lovely lounge for guests to use at their leisure. Tickets for outings , stamps and transport to airport can be arranged with the front desk.
A very nice place to stay and I will not hesitate to return some other time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the building as the road can get noisy at night.

This hotel is a little tired looking but provides basic and clean accommodation. The reception staff speak very good English and on the whole were very helpful.(There was just one on the shift that was a little bit distant!)
Food was plentiful but basic...no problems there. This is no fault of the hotel but there is no air con on sultry summer nights so windows have to be open and there is a lot of noise from tourists all night in the local streets...it's a very 24/7 city centre .The bathroom was clean and everything replaced daily.There are shops within a few yards of the hotel for any bits and pieces you may need including a chemist.

Hotel Pollera is memorable for us - but for all the wrong reasons! Its location is what encouraged us to stay there; it is central and just minutes' walk from the market square and historic centre. Our room was spacious and clean, though rather old-fashioned. This sums up the positives. The negatives include frosty, unengaging reception staff whose glacial manner in no way made us feel welcome. Quite the opposite. At breakfast, we ate in a drab room, almost empty of other guests, and the only time we saw a waitress each morning was when she flitted in briefly to make a note of our room number, and then promptly disappeared, not to be seen again! Breakfast fare was neither plentiful in choice, not attractively presented, nor was it particularly appetising. Krakow is a beautiful and interesting city, full of history. But Hotel Pollera has little to recommend it. Stay somewhere else, where the staff care about guests and make them feel welcome.

The Pollera is a tourist class hotel in a great location. Rooms are small, with 1960s era furnishings. The shower was weak, after waiting 5 mins for hot water. No hair dryer in the room, and none available when we first asked (later one appeared). Breakfast typical for this class hotel, not bad but no raves. Staff pleasant (for the most part) and try to be helpful. Overall, a C+.

This place is the antithesis of modern chain hotels. The room was a decent size but the decor and furniture in the room, and in the hotel generally, seemed a bit tired and reflective of styles from decades ago. Despite this I'd recommend it. The location is superb for access to the centre of Krakow. The staff were friendly and helpful, the bed comfortable, the shower gushed with appropriate power and temperature and the breakfast was varied and plentiful. There's no bar or restaurant but with hundreds of bars and restaurants within a stone's throw or two, who cares?

Fantastic value for money, thoroughly recommend. Modest but clean and well sized rooms with comfortable beds. Fantastic traditional polish breakfast spread. Ideal location, close to train, old town and shops and restaurants. Staff are lovely and very helpful. Has a lift which was a big bonus for us with a pram. On the same street try U Babci Maliny for old style Polish food the way my mum makes it and also Connsoni for unbelievably good ice cream.
