We stayed at the Fortuna Bis hotel for the 2nd time in May 2005. I had previously stayed there in 1999. I'm glad to say that nothing had changed, and that the hotel was just as good as I remembered it.
It's in a terrific location just off a main street with its own quiet courtyard. There is a restaurant on the ground floor which specialises in African cuisine(!), but it also does traditional polish fare as well. We ate there once on the 1st night and weren't very impressed. This is the main reason why I didn't give it full marks.
The receptionist(s) speak good english - a neccessity if your polish is as ropey as mine. Our double room - 21 - was at the front of the building on the 1st floor. It was a good size with ensuite facilities, tastefully decorated and very clean. The included breakfast was continental style, although they did also offer some cooked to order options as well. It was fine.
The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the Rynek -the centre of Krakow life. There are several very good restaurants on the Rynek and surrounding streets. The hotel is about the same distance from Wawel Castle.
I have to go back to Poland towards the end of the year and will definitely stay at the Fortuna Bis again. It is excellent value for money, the staff are friendly and efficient. I highly recommend it.
