Warm hotel a bit far away from the city centerPosted Oct 3, 2013
Excellent welcoming, wall of the room are made out of paperbox, you can heard human activity next door ? Wi-Fi are not always getting in the room. The hotel is close walking from a big Mall.

Delightful breakfasts on the patioPosted Aug 22, 2013
Pros: Comfortable, quiet, friendly, good food.
Cons: More English language options on TV, and/or a DVD player with English language/subtitled options.
Location: Several day trips operate with pickup from the hotel. We went to the Salt Mines which were impressive! The hotel offers many spa-type treatments too.
We stayed at the Farmona hotel for 2 nights, looking forward to some rest and relaxation after our flights from Scotland to Poland. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The room was quite large, overlooking the patio where we ate breakfast, surrounded by mature trees and landscaped gardens. The trees created shade to help keep the room cool in what in the very hot (over 30C) weather. There was no air conditioning, but the window opened, which meant we could get fresh air. The breakfast buffets were lovely, with a good selection of meats, cheeses, salads, breads, and fruit, and we really enjoyed eating them outside on the patio. We ate there twice in the evening too, and both times enjoyed a very good meal. The service was consistently friendly and helpful. The hotel is a few km outside the centre of Krakow, and its location means you're well away from late night party-goers, so perfect for some peace and quiet. We walked to the tram station one day and took a tram into Krakow, and got a taxi back in the evening. All in all, we would happily recommend the hotel.

DissapointedPosted Aug 19, 2013
When you take a look to the pictures appeared in the web page the expectation is higher than what you find. Small room, very noisy and old air condition system, no elevator...

Highly recommendPosted Jun 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
The restaurant and the garden were unexpected bonus. The food was excellent and the presentation was excellent. We dine everyday while we were in Krakow. Service were excellent and price was very reasonable. It is located just outside of tourist area but it was worth for us.

Nice hotelPosted Sep 30, 2012 on Hotels.com
Farmona is a very nice hotel but is located quite a distance from the heart of Krakow. However, they offered tours with pickups at the hotel. A cab ride into town was also around $10--a little more returning at night, so we were very satisfied. The hotel restaurant was very nice.

Good for SPA not so good for businessPosted Aug 28, 2012 on Hotels.com
Nice place, well appointed and spa looks lovely but did not partake..I was looking for Internet, a computer, breakfast and parking. I was disappointed with the lack of Internet access in my room (needed to go to the lobby) and the computer noted to me before I booked the room was not available until 8 am when staff where available to open the office. Then it was not available as staff had it out of the office. Very disappointing as was needing a computer for work.

The service everywhere in thr hotel was amazing. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay a great experience. All the staff had a " can do" attitude. I was not feeling well a coupe of days and the restaurant staff made me ginger tea and made sure we were very well looked after. We had a problem with our converters and the maintanence staff went out and got us the proper converter. We stayed two extra days and we would highly recommend this hotel. It's location is central to points of interest and the downtown square. Hope everyone's stay will be as great as ours.

A good hotel for those who like to explore furtherPosted Jun 10, 2012
Pros: The fine dining in the hotel's restaurant.
Cons: Our room was a bit small.
Location: Far out of town, but good if you like flexibility in your travel plans.
This hotel is out of town and you would need a car to get to it from the airport. However, to get into town is only a shortish walk to the tram line by the Carrefour shopping centre and there is easy and quick access to the centre. We used the tram to get to town, but used the hire car to get to the salt mine and to Auschwitz and to explore the beautiful countryside. There is plenty of safe parking on site. The hotel grounds are well kept and are nice to sit in during summer evenings or after enjoying a good meal in the hotel. The dining room's decor is rather dark, but the food is excellent but quite pricey compared with Krakow town centre where you can get plentiful food and drink at a lower price. Our room was small, but comfortable. The shower room was very clean and the shower was powerful with plenty of hot water, and there was a good range of toiletries. We did not use the spa facilities but they looked clean and quiet. The hotel generally was quiet. Breakfast was good if you like cold fish, meat, cheeses and egg, but lacked a selection of pastries. It was never crowded and was well stocked throughout. The staff were friendly and gave good information. I would recommend this hotel if you like to travel into town using public transport and yet like the flexibility of going further afield in a car. I would not recommend this hotel if you are just staying a couple of days and only want to explore Krakow.

PARADISE!Posted May 30, 2012
Overall this hotel was a great addition to our trip. Away from the city center and high pricing. The breakfast served was wonderful and Reception was very helpful. If interested in visiting the spa, I would recommend booking in advance! The spa location and atmosphere was indeed pleasant and should be visited. Don't shy away from this hotel due to the location, a short taxi ride of 15 minutes will bring you to where you want to be!
