The grand exterior and classical European style make historical Hotel Polonia an attractive, if faded, choice in a convenient location
An imposing and venerable sight, equidistant from the train station and the Old Town’s Planty Park, the 3-star Hotel Polonia is a slightly faded memory of past travels. From the red brick exterior to the checkered lobby, this is one for the nostalgics. (Check availability and pricing on Booking.com or Agoda.com).
In truth, you are never sure exactly what kind of room you will end up with. Some are traditional with surprising details, some have a modern touch, others are a little drab, to be honest. But the hotel is very clean and the bathrooms are generally good. And, for some, the Polonia is the very definition of charm.
The real plus is the location. It is one of Kraków’s best connected hotels. The main train station – and shopping mall – are across the road. All the key trams stop directly outside. Planty Park and key Old Town attractions are minutes away by foot. So it’s perfect for any kind of Kraków sightseeing.
Although not to every taste, Hotel Polonia definitely has its fans and, for a 3-star hotel, it’s actually very grand. Most of all, it is one of the city’s most convenient places to stay.
Hotel Polonia address: Basztowa 25, Old Town, 31-156 Kraków, Poland
