Hotel SaskiIn the Heart of the Old Town
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.
