Editor's review

A beautiful stained glass window by Stanislaw Wyspianski, Cracow's most famous artist, betrays the long-standing tradition of this hotel, which is just a couple of minutes walk from the Main Market Square (Rynek). The Pollera has been around for over 150 years, and it is still run by its pre-war owners. It has elegant, air-conditioned suites and an art nouveau restaurant serving traditional Polish cuisine completes the experience. Pollera boasts a banquet room and ballroom, and the latter can be converted into a conference room. Guests coming with their pets are welcomed. All in all, a very Cracovian institution.

Very clean hotel although stuck in a bit of a time warp (1930s and 1940's). Staff very polite and helpful, most importantly cheap and a 2 min walk to the main square. Excellent location!

This is honest, 3 star hotel with rooms being ok,but do not expect a luxury of a five star. Yet location is next to none.

The hotel is quiet and well maintained with a brand new elevator. Location is perfect as well, between bus station and main square.

Good middle range hotel, location fantastic. Not the best place I've ever stayed in, but really good value for the price.

The location is excellent, 2 mins walking distance to the Rynek and 10 mins to Wawel Castle. Breakfast is plentiful but a little uninspiring. There are no warm offerings or fruit available. staff were very helpful. A little bit old fashioned decor.

The location is perfect, very close to the main Market square. The price very cheap for the quality provided. If English-speaking channel were available would be more appreciated

Superb location, 2 minutes walk from Rynek Glowny, less than 10 from railway/bus stations.

Pros: Really nice hotel with atmosphere, in a great place for reaching everything on foot and private and free parking is a benefit! Cons: Bit noisy with creaky floors, and staff could be more helpful with information.

Great Hotel central location and well priced. Old fashioned and full of olde worlde charm. Ideal for a group of lads (us) or a couple. Really very good and booked via Cracow-life which made everything very simple and easy. Great place and great hotel, I will stay here again for my next visit.

Yes, it is opposite a beautiful theatre. And it does seem in a time warp all of its own. Which makes it authentic I guess. Not overflowing with modern touches, but very "Cracovian" is how my Polish friend put it. Old-fashioned but with characted and a great location.

Could see the gorgeous big theatre from my window, which tempted me to go there finally on our last evening - well worth it! Great hotel, one of the best I'bve seen in Europe.

The Pollera is by far the best hotel I have stayed in for a long time. Oozing style and history the location makes for a perfect stay in Krakow. Cannot fault my stay at the hotel.

This hotel seemed absolutely in a time-warp. Thankfully that's exactly how we like it. A Habsburg era throwback with a very nostalgic aura. Amazing location by a turn of the century theatre. Mitteleuropa personified!

I stayed at the hotel last August 2006 and i loved it, it was very central 5 minute walk to the square. The hotel was very typical of an old polish hotel it was very clean, and cosy.The food was lovely. I enjoyed the hotel and Krakow so much that we are travelling again on 1st Dec in time hopefully for the Christmas Market.

I stayed at the Pollera Hotel in 2000 and other familys members have stayed here on numerous occassions while visiting Krakow. We had great service and the Staff were very friendly, organising a taxi service to the train station and even airport transfers for my other family members without been rude or unhelpful as the first person has said. We had a tripleroom stay with private facilities and we had great breakfasts served to us.

I plan to stay at this hotel on my next trip to krakow next year and i recommend it to anyone else who wants a great hotel with great service and great prices.

We stayed for three nights in the Hotel Pollera (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) in February and had a great time. Hotel is clean, staff are friendly and willing to help and the room was great. I'd recommend the hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Krakow. It was also extremely good value.
