June 2012

This hotel is off the beaten path, but it’s very nice and very comfortable for a budget-conscious traveler. Would absolutely stay again, keeping in mind, this isn’t on the main square, but about a 20 Zloty ($6) cab ride away. I can’t say enough nice things about the hotel front desk staff. So courteous, friendly and helpful. Just an extraordinary experience with the front desk and most of the staff.

The bartender on duty that night was so rude and arrogant. He kept biting his teeth and telling me I didn’t’ know what I was talking about regarding a credit card currency conversion incident. The first time I ever felt like I was about to be punched by a member of the hotel staff. The only bad mark on an otherwise wonderful experience.

Friendly, accomodating staff.

Air conditioning in room was not working that well. Room was a bit too hot. Everything else was fine.

The staff was absolutely the most professional and courteous of all the hotels that I have visited in Krakow. Their attention to my needs despite having a full booking was unbelievable. We chose the Holiday Inn Express for the value that it offered, and we were pleasantly surprised that lower costs did not equal lower quality from the staff. I really can’t say enough nice things about the experience from the people that helped us.

The amenities were a little short (no fitness center, pool or sauna), but for the price this was to be expected. All the services that they do have were simply excellent.

Clean, airy hotel

The cheap rate of the hotel is ruined by the cost of the tax fares to and from Electrolux
