some great apartments on here in Krakow, I personally prefer an apartment, more space and dont have to bother dressing for breakfast :)

You could try the Hotel Fian, reasonable rates, restaurant and bar, also, secure car parking. Easy walking distance to main street area.

thanks avalon.. looks a bit far out maybe. Has anyone stayed at Sabala hotel? Is it better to stay near the main street or too noisy at night?

Merged: Accommodation at Krakow / Zakopane

Hi there..
This sure is a nice and vibrant forum!
I guess I need some serious help from all of you over here..
End Jan is drawing near and I' m still 'planning' my Krakow visit with my partner & 2 kids.. the younger one is just 18 mths!!
The problem is that I have not yet booked any hotels. With all the snow in Zakopane, I bet the place would be swarming with people..

Guys, pse lemme know if accommodation-wise I still stand some chance or is it that I have missed the bus? (planning to reach around 27-28 Jan from Kaliningrad by train)

Will be glad to get suggestions for some good hotels for a 3-4 nights stay . I dunno how I shd divide the stay between Krakow and Zakopane. Pse advise on that too!

Thanks in anticipation!

Hello PolishAdventure,

And welcome to the Polish Forum.

I will advise you on one condition, that you post on here about your Polish adventure ? :)

Just kidding. - My recommendations for Zakopane

Scroll down and there is a small bit on accommodation, add to the thread if you like :)
My advise is to ring ahead and book.

Good luck, I live near Zakopane and I was skiing today in Białka it is beautiful.

Merged: Restaurant in Krakow/Zakopane: romantic and original


I want to take my lady out for St.Valentines day (either in Krakow or Zakopane).
Unfortunately, I'm not local, so do not know good venues there.

Could you recommend a nice cafe/restaurant there? IT should be romantic and original (with nice view over the town, river, park, mountains, etc or nicely designed interior).

Thank you in advance!

Please post the venues' names or links to their web-sites.

Hello Kiltmaker,

And welcome to the Polish Forum.

There are many good restaurants in both Zakopane and Krakow.
You could be more specific.

Krakow restaurant recommendations

Also "Ariel" is in the Jewish quarter, it's great and sometimes they have fantastic music, mainly Jewish.
Vegetarian restaurants I recommend VEGA.

As for Zakopane, there are many great restaurants on the main walking street (Krupuvki), very ethnic and very delicious.


Also for recommendations for Zakopane And for recommendations for Krakow.

Please feel free to add anything useful to these threads.

Best of luck
