The three-star Hotel Pollera is a lovely property located in a historic building, just a few minutes from Krakow's Central Square.
The hotel’s 42 rooms, as is so often the case, do not live up to the grandeur of the reception area, but they do have their own antique charms. Expect striped wallpaper and matching headboards and bedspreads. We especially liked the gauzy, dainty curtains and the out-of-place 1960s modern ceiling lamps. All rooms are equipped with a telephone, satellite TV and free Wi-Fi.
The Pollera has a deep, turbulent history that mirrors Poland's own difficult past. Occupied by Nazi as well as Russian forces, the building housing the Pollera was nationalized under state socialism before reverting to original ownership after the fall of the Soviet alliance. In a city with tons of new (albeit wonderful) hotels, it's refreshing to encounter a hotel with a grand history and appearance. Pollera's exquisite reception area is an art nouveau masterpiece. The stained-glass windows and stairway are meticulously detailed.
Breakfast is included.
