“Krakow business”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Comfortable, good value hotel, 15 min taxi ride from the centre of Krakow but also reachable by tram and handy for the A4 if you have a car. Nice quiet location but also close to a modern shopping centre.
Staff very helpful and friendly.
Stayed here 3 times now.

Hotel is conveniently located for the travellers with their own car - near the A4 motorway and E77 road in a peaceful and quite area. Although it can take over 30 mins to get to the centre from there.
Rooms looks quite simple but this is only a first impression. Later you can realize that everything you need is there. Bathroom is quite big and clean. Service is good and staff is very friendly.
Breakfast is marvellous, really good variety of cold and hot meals, fruits, cereals and other snacks.

Have just returned from a 4 day break in Krakow and staying at the Hotel Kontrast and we can not do anything but say how good it was. A small but friendly hotel just 15 mins drive from Krakow city centre so handy enough to enjoy the city sights but far enough out of it to be able to switch off!
Great service with nothing too much to ask and everything done in such a friendly way. The breakfasts were excellent and a great start to the day before heading out to see the local tourist attractions.
All in all a great hotel and at such good value we'll be booking again soon

Hotel Kontrast is my usall one night stop in Cracow. It was visited by me both on business and private trips to Cracow.
Reasonable rpdice for comfy hotel located close to road to Zakopane and 20 minutes drive to city centre.
I could also recommend a good variety of tasty dishes form Trzech Kucharze ( Three Cooks ) Restaurant which is located in lef wing of the hotel.

The hotel is located in a quiet small street, only 100 meters away from the road goes in to krakow from the south, so its absolutely perfect location for those who travel by car.
+ The rooms are comfortable, large, and the most important is, that the staff are extremely helpful and nice, the breakfast is very good as well. The hotel is a very good decision for the price. But there are some negative things :

- We arrived late evening to the hotel, so we needed a rest, but next day morning the cleaning lady opened into our room around 8 am, when we were in the bed already. I told her to come back later, but she probably didnt speak english.
The walls are so thin, that you hear everything happens on the corridor, and because of the reason the cleaning starts around 8 every day, you dont have a chance to sleep longer than that.
About the hotel's restaurant its a typical eastern european 'good' restaurant, extremely large portions, and you can choose from -I dont know- 100 different food. It would be much much better if there would be less to choose from, but those would be perfect, instead of 100 average.

Overall the hotel is highly recommended for this price, but dont forget to use the do not disturb symbol, and dont eat in the restaurant, only if you really dont want to go into the city, where there is some extremely good restaurant like Pod Baranem.

Like another reviewer, I throught that when I checked in they should have told me about the 10% discount at the restaurant for people staying there. I think Poland is still trying to come into the 21st century with customer service but they are trying. It's a good idea to check your bill the night before just in case so you don't have a cab waiting outside while you try to straighten any problems out. In my case they had added someone else's restaurant bill to my total. Also, without going into details, they failed to correct my bill as promised when I was leaving over another issue. It was worked out after I left, but was irritating and due, I think to the front desk not communicating with the back office. That needs improvement. The breakfast was great; Lots of variety, eggs, bacon, sausage, bread, cheese, yogurt, salads, cold cuts, good coffee. The restaurant was also good with really reasonable prices. My average cost was about $10-12 USD for dinner, including a drink. the room was cleaned every day. I had a view out back to the lawn and woods which was nice. A MAJOR complaint though was that despite the fact that they had satellite TV the only English channels were Bloomberg and the travel channel. I was there a lot on off days and there was nothing to watch. Also, it was warm and there was a fan (no AC), but if you plugged it in you had to unplug the phone or the lamp. So, that's easily fixed. They also had a computer for guests to use for 6pln a half an hour. The toilet paper was this hard, gray, non-absorbant stuff, but I saw that everywhere. I guess Eastern Europeans aren't into Charmin yet! With the current exchange rate the price is about $69.00 a night including the breakfast; so pretty reasonable. Poland has started the 3-year transition to the Euro so don't expect this bargain to last. Too bad.
