Accommodation in Wroclaw

Just a little bit of advice please, can any suggest best places to stay in Wroclaw? only there for a couple of days so obviously very central, I wouldnt usualy ask - I'm quite a dab hand on the internet but accommodation seems to be a bit thin on the ground - which I thought was funny as it's such a big place.

Serious answers please.

If you like good quality (and can afford to pay about 120 Euro per night), here is a good choice - located just in downtown.

If you could specify the price range you're targeting, it would be easier. There are loads of places, from private rooms for rent to four star hotels so it's hard to recommend anything.

i've just checked, most pages that come up are in Polish only. But for sure there's choice.

Normally but as it'll be the 5 holiday this year and want to go skiing for New Year I think I'll looking at less than 120 Euro (no plush hotels Im going with a mate - no real need for a romantic 4 poster bed!)

Can someone tell me the best place to be and I'll have a look myself....TVM

If a couch works fine I can offer mine @ zero pounds per night :)

Actually I am a member of hospitality club and couchsurfing, from where many people come and stay at my place for free. Its like hitch hiking, I get to meet new people and get to know peeps better.. They get a free place to sleep and some one to give tips on the local places..

Just to avoid other guests on those nights..

If anyone else is going to visit Wroclaw, here's a quick guide.

No need to read, it's a movie :)

The Stranger Hostel is a great place to stay. Very cheap and extremely clean!

Lakelandhiker,

If you come to Wroclaw for a short period. Ask one of us here to book a ticket for the Panorama Raclawicka. You may miss it otherwise as it's usually advanced booking. But that is only if you are interested in big, old, circular paintings.

If you want to know anything about Wroclaw, just ask me.

Thanks Wroclaw. Have you seen it? Is it worth seeing?

Lakelandhiker,

For me it's just a picture. But the Panorama is the most visited place in Wroclaw.

The thing about the Panorama is that 'size matters'. You find yourself looking at something that is 114m long.

Try this: panoramaraclawicka.pl/en_index.htm

I've also seen and and found it very impressive !

The thing is when my friend told me we were going to see a painting I have to tell you I wasn't really all that excited about the prospect.

The Panorama is a cylindrical painting. The Rotunda was purposely built to house it.

Apart from the sheer scale of the painting what impressed me most was the way the museum uses props to bring the painting to life. For example, one scene will show a grassy area with a painting of a wooden fence. The museum then artfully place a real wooden fence in front of the canvas and tastefully add tufts of grass here and there.

The clever use of props gives the painting an almost 3D effect.

At the end of the day it is still only a painting so some people won't be impressed no matter what. Personally, I would recommend seeing it.

Is it really necessary to get someone to buy the ticket for the Panorama ahead of time? One can't simply go early in the morning? I'll appreciate your advice. And I'll be there in July. Is this heavy or low tourist season?

You should be able to buy a ticket the same day. It's school trips that cause problems, and there is no school in July.

The last time I was there: tickets were bought and there was a half hour wait.

Wroclaw should be busy in July, especially Rynek. It's the number of people and bars, which add to Rynek's atmosphere in summer.

You should find that most hotels in the city area are within easy reach of most attractions. Also, the Panorama is about a ten minute walk from the centre.

Thanks Bossie for the great video link, and thanks Wroclaw for the info about the Panorama ticket. I've been to Warsaw, Krakow and Torun so I don't think the Rynek business will be intimidating! I found I stood out in Torun, not because I was being a noisy American. Rather I was odd in a sidewalk cafe because I was alone, and because I was drinking sok or cola!

Two places I have stayed when in Wroclaw, both near train station:

-Piast - opposite to train station, by Rossmann. Old building with old rooms, nice if you are into that kinda places...

- Avantgarde hostel - also not far from train station, I think they have some signs there as well. Clean and they have nice rooms for two people (but need to be booked in advance as they seem to be popular).
