Four of us (2 couples) stayed at the Sheraton Krakow over Easter for 5 nights. We had the most fantastic stay. From the minute we arrived we were made feel so welcome at the hotel. Checkin was very quick and efficient. Our rooms were great. My husband and myself were on the first floor with a view across the river and our friends were on the 3rd floor with a view to the castle. The rooms had everything you could want fluffy bathrobes, slippers, cable tv, internet access, iron and ironing board, 'proper' hairdryer, etc. The bed was so comfortable.
The hotel has a large atrium under which is situated the Olive Restaurant, where we were served the most tasty breakfast every morning, everything you could possibly want to eat. We never ate in the restaurant in the evening. However we did eat at the Sports Bar which serves American type fare, very good. We also ended every evening at Qube the hotel's lounge bar which served fab cocktails and you could also get snacks, coffee, etc. It was a great place to people watch. The staff at the hotel were so friendly and really made the difference.
We booked the hotel car for our trip to and from the airport and I would recommend this. We also booked the hotel car for our trip to Auschwitz-Birkeneau, as this is a long and very moving day it was a personal way to do the trip. We also went on an organised trip to the Salt Mines which was an enjoyable afternoon. We did a lot of walking and would recommend you take comfortable shoes. We would also recommend the golf buggy tour, good fun and a great way to see areas you might miss otherwise. The castle is stunning even in a snow blizzard! There are lots of cafes, bars and restaurants and we found the food everywhere very good and reasonably priced. A real treat is Zsara Restaurant on the main square. We did find over Easter Krakow to be very very quiet but by the end of the week the square was full of life, we would go back at a different time of year.
All in all we had a wonderful time. Yes the Sheraton Krakow is a large chain hotel and I am sure Krakow has some lovely hotels with more character and it is a bit more expensive, but we all just loved the Sheraton, a home from home, and if we ever go back to Krakow we will definitely stay there.
