The three-star PTTK Wyspianski is a modern, business-class hotel. Huge for Krakow, the 231-room property is set back from busy Westerplatte.
Rooms exist in the aesthetic valley between sterile and folky. Plush bright red carpets, cherry-brown headboards and bed frames and swirl-patterned bedspreads are formulaic in the global business hotel vein. That's the sterility. But just as you are ready to write off PTTK Wyspianski as boring if reliable, you note the more upcountry, charming touches: funky upholstered chairs, little wooden sitting tables and odd wooden lamp stands, all suggesting the 1970s.
Other rooms are considerably more understated, with blue wall-to-wall carpets flecked with white dots and neutral-tone floral bedspreads. Irrespective of aesthetics, rooms have an unquestionably freshly-scrubbed appearance that extends to the tiled bathrooms. All have a satellite television and telephone.
PTTK Wyspianski’s got all the amenities expected of hotels of its ilk. (Conference rooms accommodating 100? Check!) All this stands in contrast to the hotel's floor landings, which feel more like impersonal Eastern-Bloc digs than a newish business hotel.
Breakfast is included. Wi-Fi is available in the public areas for a fee.
