Historical Traveller Reviews of Wyspianski Hotel
A great breakfrom A TripAdvisor Member
most disgusting hotel ever...from A TripAdvisor Member
We were in a bind to find a hotel in Krakow so we looked on hotels.com to see what we could find. The reviews that I had read about this hotel seemed okay - so we went for it. When we arrived, we were greeted by an unairconditioned facility (mind you that it was 98 degrees!!!!) Needless to say- that made my entire family miserable. We were then given our room keys and made our way upstairs. We opened the rickety, unsafe appearing, door. WOW- that was when the tears began to curl in my eyes! We walk into the 8x10 room (now- I'm being generous)... the beds were head-to-head. There was a smell that was unbearable. We took a look into the bathroom... there were ruby red towels. Now- what hotel has red towels??? So anyway- there was dust everywhere... there was even dust on the water bottles.
Ok- so after all of this, we went downstairs to tell the staff what was going on. The staff LITERALLY laughed in our faces. Because our family is Polish - we could hear everything that they were saying about us... they were NASTY!! My entire family confronted them and the staff said, "We were talking about someone else." We knew that they were talking about us.
We decided that we were going to go out for the whole day and just come back to sleep. We got back at about 1 a.m. and laid down on the bed... there was no mattress. Really- there was NO mattress. There were blankets piled on top of each other!! There was no airconditioning, no fans... ZERO ventilation. We tried to open the window but there must have been a child lock on it because the window opened about 2inches!
I hope that everyone reading this understands that this was the worst hotel ever. I was at another hotel in Warsaw (Sheraton) that was fantastic. So my point is- stay in a known hotel... not a 'no-name' one!
Great Location let Down By Interiorfrom nedrise
An excellent hotel - good value for money in an ideal locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The external appearance seems a little dated, however the rooms were spacious, clean, newly refurbished and with all mod cons (TV, hairdryer etc). I think we were allocated superior rooms which, at a cost of around £34 per room per night was superb value! Breakfast was perfectly adequate (bread, crispbreads, fruit, cheese, ham etc) and the dining area spotless and clean.
The hotel is only a few minutes walk away from the main square in beautiful Krakow.
Our only regret is that we were not there longer. Would recommend this hotel and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
ve stayed in for yearsfrom reesh
We chose the Hotel Wyspianski as it was central to the city.
The first impression was efficiency and also that it was very popular.
The room was a triple and was very clean, very bright and gave us a good view over the roads and green space. There was hardly any noise. The fittings and fixtures were very modern and we were always warm.My only complaint was lack of tea and coffee facilities in the room, but there was always a plentiful suppy of bottled water and tea and coffee at the bar was very cheap but the best quality on the market.
I've stopped in 5 star hotels in the UK that were far below this standard.
Where Wyspianski was different from other similar hotels was in the quality of the staff, frienliness, efficiency and most of all the excellent food served in the Restaurant.This place is priceless...excellent tasting food, great, professional service and humour. The only down side is there is far too much food on the plate for me.
The chef made lots of different things for my daughter that weren't on the menu..fantastic.
I recommend the hotel to anyone who isn't looking for all the glitz but wants to stay in a good, friendly place with fantastic amenities and staff.
disappointedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
hotel is central, but so is the holiday inn and the sheraton so I'd give them a try instead!

Great hotel in a central locationfrom flomac
Ideally located good value basic hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Breakfast was, I believe, typically Polish and provided a wide choice of meats, cheeses, breads, pastries and hot sausages. If you want lots of fresh/tinned fruit forget it, the mornings we were there it was apples and oranges and the oranges seemed to run out on the 3rd morning. There were plenty of cereals and juices (try the blackcurrant juice) to choose from and the whole thing was a buffet affair.
Ate in the restuarant 1 night and it was about £6 for soup, goulash, a beer and a coffee! There are lots of restaurants and bars to choose from around the square.
The hotel was 2 minutes walk from the main square and about 10 mins from the castle and Jewish quarter. Found the staff really helpful and friendly and we arranged a couple of excursions via the reception (Auschwitz and the salt mines).
Hotel seemed to be popular with school parties and whilst we were there saw English and German children. The English ones (!) were quite loud until around 1am 'ish 1 partucular night and I must blame their teachers for this and certainly not the hotel. We mentioned it to reception and it never bothered us again.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anybody visiting Krakow who would like good value for money with an ideal location and I would certainly stay there again.
A happy traveller from the sunny Isle of Man. Home to the world famous the TT.
Good hotel, good locationfrom schrap2755
The hotel is in a good location with an easy walk to the centre.
The rooms were larger than expected, but the two twin beds were pushed each against the wall which was odd at first, then was very practical as I just set all my stuff on the extra bed.
The breakfast was basic..almost too basic. There wasn't much selection of fruits, yogurts and what was there wasn't of decent quality. It wasn't bad -- just not good.
I would stay here again, however knowing it's a basic but well located 3*.
Top Local Tips for Krakow
Auschwitz Book a tour to Auschwitz, It's harrowing but I think it's something everyone should see. I went with Cracow Tours and it was cheaper to book through Expedia (£20) than buy a ticket in Poland.
granny mallinis try granny mallinis if you can find it what an experience!
Wonderful ctiy There are a few traditional Polish eating houses in Krakow. The Polish food is salty and mostly cooked in lard so may not be to everyones taste. We ate at a place called "Chlopskie Jadlo" which can be a bit dire, there are better places in Krakow serving Polish Cuisine. A trip to the Nazu Death camp at Auschwitz is a must for travellers to Poland
