Nice hotel near river Wisla
Posted Oct 20, 2016
We had a five-day-city-trip to Krakow, where Autumn coloured most trees in lovely orange and yellowish. We first stayed in room 419 and later on in room 212. Rooms at the streetside are rather noisy and room 419 in particular (next to a kind of machinery room?). Luckily we were able to switch to room 212, riverside. Rooms are comfortable, very clean and have tea/coffee facilities. The staff of the hotel is very, very friendly. Breakfast is excellent (I vivedly recommend the pancakes). On warmer days you can overlook the river from the balcony at the restaurant/breakfast area. Nice spa, open till nine at night. I enjoyed a facial holistic massage. It's a twenty minute walk along the riverside to Wawel Castle and more or less half an hour to the beautiful main square. By tramway it takes only a few minutes (dayticket 15 zloty - 3,60 euro). Tram stop in front of the hotel; a ticket can be bought at the kiosk).
The hotel is 20/25 minutes from the airport, a bit outside city center. When coming by car it's a good place to stay (because you needn't go into the more busy areas). In front of the hotel is a pharmacy and a supermarket (open till late at night).
And for Dutch travellers: look at my blog Zin in Portugal about rural life in Portugal (in case you are planning to travel to Southern Europe on a next trip ;-)
