Hotel Pricing

We are 4 seniors looking for a reasonably priced hotel in old town Crakow. I am amazed at the prices being asked in this depressed world economy. Even Paris and London hotels are way below their normal rates. Are the rates being posted ony a starting ponts, from which one negotiates? Thanks very much.

Hi there! I think the prices sound high is partly because the pound is so weak at the moment. That said, it is a good idea to shop around. If you cannot find a hotel at a reasonable price, you could also try an apartment. is a good choice, and might work out cheaper. Regards, Jabber

Hi There Been going to Krakow for 4 years (ish) now and I agree the apartments are far better value especially in the old town. Hotels are expensive I agree but demand seems to be consistant hence the prices. Back in Krakow in July. Looking forward to it. Fantastic place and people in my experience.

Agree with the apartment advice. Also, look for hotels in the Kazimierz or Podgorze areas - it's still close to the Old Town, but might be a bit cheaper.
