Saski Hotel Krakow Reviews
Old fashioned hotel at a prime location Jul 26, 2014
In Krakow I stayed at Hotel Saski, and there is nothing wrong with hotel Saski. I say this up front because there was a weird thing while I was there: it was almost completely empty. The hotel is very big with lots of rooms and corridors and a big breakfast area, and it is located at an excellent place in the middle of the old town, and I was there in summer, the busy season. But I was one of only three guests. I thought this was very strange but the receptionist told me that the hotel is usually full in September.
So, if you are going to Krakow in the summer and you want a good hotel at a prime location all by yourself, you can go to hotel Saski.
The hotel has an old-fashioned, early 20th century feel. An aging porter is ready to pick up your bag and carry it into a wrought-iron elevator that shakes and rattles its way upwards. The hallways and rooms have high ceilings. My room wasn’t particularly big and my bed wasn’t particularly big either, but comfortable enough. A downside of staying in the middle of the old town is that it can be a bit noisy at night. And it is on the expensive side.

If budget is not an issue - might be considered. Dec 14, 2008
I've stayed here for 2 nights, as this hotel was recommended in a Japanese tour guide around Poland and my guests insisted we'd book it.
All in all - for THAT kind of price I'd honestly expect something more.
I admit, the staff was well informed and helpful about all the activities going on in the city and can arrange a lot of stuff for you to your liking. Also the bathroom was really awesome and windows are amazing. The building is truly gorgeous.
On the other hand, the room felt a bit dusty and most of the equipment was a bit old. Moreover, every time I walked in to the elevator I’d keep my fingers crossed so it doesn’t break down or something.
However, the location is the main advantage and if it's the only concern and budget is not an issue - you just might try it.

Saski Hotel Overview
Hotel Saski offers a rare combination - accommodation that is both congenial and affordable, and right in the heart of Krakow's Old Town. A fashionable hotel during the Fin-de-Siecle, Saski was relaunched a decade ago and it has become something of a trusted choice with visitors to the city. Saski is based in an attractive mansion just off the main market square - the location is superb, with all the delights of the city just a short stroll away. The cream of Cracow's cafes, shops and museums are all at hand, making this a wonderful base from which to explore the city.
The atmosphere of Saski still resonates with the spirit of Old Krakow. Although thoroughly restored in recent years, you'll still find many charming old features, such as stained-glass windows and a rather wonderful old wooden lift that you could well imagine Marcel Proust stepping out of. The hotel has a light and airy atmosphere, and it can easily accommodate large groups. Saski has sixty rooms all in all, including singles, doubles as well as triples, and these can be reserved with or without a bathroom. There are also eleven suites if you are tempted to indulge yourself in a little more space and luxury.
Stepping through the reception hall you'll find yourself in the excellent Metropolitan restaurant, which is amongst the most popular in Krakow. This stylish, modern eatery is where expats head for when they have longings for an English or American breakfast, but the mouthwatering lunch and dinner menus have made it an all round hit for Poles and foreigners alike. All in all, Saski would be an ideal place to head for if you are looking for the charm and romance of an Old Town location yet at affordable prices.
