Accommodation in Krakow – Hotel

Accommodation in Krakow.

There are no complaints about the number of accommodation places in Krakow, however, in the high season it can be difficult to find a free room without prior reservation. For those then, who are planning to stay in a hotel, the best solution will be to reserve a seat. It is best to order accommodation directly at the selected hotel a few months before the planned arrival (due to the Krakow Festival 2000 some places are reserved even several years in advance). Most of the advertised hotels are small and intimate facilities, home character, located in historic tenement houses in the city center.

Hotels of a higher standard are located outside the city center, sometimes even on the periphery (e.g.. Hotel Under the Hill). There are also several inns in the vicinity of Krakow, which guarantee quite good conditions. The accommodation offer is completed by motels, guesthouses, youth hostels and campsites. Also worth knowing, that some student dormitories are open to tourists in the summer season. They provide the cheapest places, however, the luxurious conditions should not be counted on here. In all higher standard hotels you can pay by credit card. Detailed information about available rooms in all hotels in Krakow is provided by Jordan Travel Agency (ul.

One thought on “Accommodation in Krakow – Hotel”

  1. Best Western Premier is evidently missing from the hotel directory. It's a hotel in a good location and a very good standard. My favorite place on the map of Krakow.
