We visited Krakow in January but our room at the Holiday Inn was 2*not 5* as some agencies rate it.
The Wielopole is opposite the Holiday Inn so great location,Rynek,Wawel Castle and Jewish Quarter an esy walk away.
The hotel has a small recepton area with free coffee,tea and biscuits available and helpful and smiley receptionists. Our room was medium sized and simle but airy with french windows onto a small balcony. Thought had gone into the planning. The air conditioning worked a treat and cooled or heated the room in minutes. A separate radiator kept the bathroom warm. Decent wardrobe space and separate hooks for outdoor or wet clothes. The bathroomhad a good power shower with a large shower tray. There was room for toiletries and plenty of hooks for towels andsponge bags. Strangely no shower cap - more helpful than providing shampoo! . The curtians were unlined which could prove a problem in Summer for those that need darkness to sleep.
This hotel would be our choice if we visit again. I t more than earns it's 3*
Polselska street:across the ring road and go left diagonally through Planty there is a road of restuarants. We ate at a Polish one at the far end. An Italian halfway along , full of locals and at the near enda Polish?Hungarian one with brilliant Hungarian food and nrxt door Paese which had just reopened and where we had a three course meal with wine for £30 for two which would have cost well over £100 in London.
INFORMATION- The Jewish Quarter closes down on a Tuesday.The alterpiece at St Mary,s is opened 10 minutes after the church opens with a small fanfare. A magical moment.
Sall golf trollies are used for sightseeing if needed (in rain). They are very reasonable with commentary. Our guide turned it off sometimes to practice his English and was very informative. No name but if his face lights up when you mention The Wars of The Roses you have the right guy
