Very average hotel

Posted Mar 26, 2012
Although it looks quite new, the condition and the materials used inside look like requiring more investments or refreshing.

Hotel is near bus stop to town centre. The staff is really very nice and speak good English. The hotel is not expensive but does not lack any commodity and is clean. There is also free access to internet.

Cheap and Cheerful!

Stayed at Hotel Major (pronounced ‘ma-yor’ in Polish) for a long weekend, primarily to go to the annual Selector Festival in Krakow. The hotel isn’t in the most convenient of locations, but that is not a problem – if you use the train link from the airport, you will find plenty taxis waiting outside .The average cost from the city centre to the hotel is around 35pl (Polish Zloty) – equating to around only £6.50. For day-to-day travel, there is a very handy bus stop located just outside the hotel. This costs a mere 2.50pl (50p) for each journey – you can buy tickets at any news stand, or on the bus. Bus number 130 will take you directly to the centre in about 15-20 minutes. The hotel itself is fairly modern and very clean. All the staff are very pleasant and helpful, and will do their best to understand English or assist with Polish pronunciation! The rooms are spacious though slightly minimal (no safe, fridge/mini-bar or no tea/coffee facilities for example). There is not much in the way of local facilities, though a local ‘Jubilat’ store will provide most of the necessities. Poland itself is a great city and highly recommended for a weekend break – plenty to see and do in and around the city, and a number of excellent tours available (Salt Mines, Auschwitz, Jewish District etc). If you’re looking for a no-frills accommodation, then I would definitely consider Hotel Major. If you’re after something a bit more luxurious or closer to the city, then maybe this isn’t for you.

Typical Lack of Service

Posted Apr 21, 2009 on Hotels
Room was spotless and building in new condition. Bar was only open at convenience of staff- was closed 30 mins early (2130 hours) and it took the manager to get them to make a 3 EUR cup of hot chocolate. Reception called the wrong taxi (50% more expensive than company I asked for by name). Location is far from the center, construction site next door is noisy.

Good value for money Hotel

The hotel is new and very clean. As a tourist it is far away from the city center and the cost of cab rides to get back at night evens out the savings at the hotel.The hotel per se is very good however

Darmowy parking i tani nocleg

Posted Jan 4, 2012 on Hotels
tak wiec.. tanio i stosunkowo daleko do centrum, bez samochodu nie polecam. dwie noce nieprzespane przez innych lokatorow - strasznie niesie przez sciany.. w lazience grzyb na wykonczeniach silikonowych, polamany smietnik i krzywe polki, woda raz ciepla raz zimna bez wyraznego ku tego powodu. z restauracji nie korzystalem - szkoda kasy podle innych komentarzy. obsluga sprzataczek - przychodza o ktorejkolwiek chca, najczesciej rano kiedy jeszcze spisz wiec.. trzeba im odmowic. ogolnie za kase mozna przezyc jesli budzet jest maly.

Hotel Major à Cracovie : bon rapport qualité/prix

Posted Mar 12, 2011 on Hotels
Location: Visitez Auschwitz-Birkenau, de préférence avec un guide, c'est très, TRES grand. retour en bus à 17h. pourquoi ? pour ne jamais oublier l'horreur nazie les quartiers de la ville (juif, vieux et chateau)
Un peu loin du centre, un bus (le 130 depuis les krakowska galeria - avant dernier arret) vous y amène en 15 minutes, arrêt desservi toutes les 10 minutes. Et nous n'avons pas vu de contrôleur... La chambre est très bien. L'hotel aussi. Le prix du restaurant dans l'hotel est par contre cher. 2 à 3 fois ce que l'on peu trouver en ville. Le petit dej est excessif aussi, toujours en comparaison des tarifs de ville.
