In this page we give you some basic travelers information about Krakow, Poland and hotels in Krakow. But we would first like to give you some other important information that can save you money, time and grief.
The on line hotel reservation systems are so powerful that they can negotiate deep discounts from the hotels. Using one of those systems can save you up to 50% of the room rate that you would pay were you to reserve a room directly with the hotel.
But at the same time, they lack the personal serive you might get from dealing directly with the hotel. Unless you use an online booking service that offers offline help while preserving the deep discounts for you.
For personal help with your hotels in Poland, while saving the discount, please tell us what you need here. Contact
