Poland Stay: Hotel Ibis Centrum in Krakow


It is always an emotional return for me to cities I traveled through before I started my new life in Poland. As a tourist, I visited Poland four times before moving here in 2016. One of those trips saw a train journey to the popular city of Kraków.

At the time, I was coming into a low after my long term split with Panny and nowhere to live. On that trip, I toured Kazimierz, the Jewish Quarter as well as delving into the German Death Camps at Auschwitz and Birkenau while based in Krakow Old Town. Have a look at Hotel ibis Centrum, where I stayed in downtown Krakow.

Contemporary rooms with colorful accents feature free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs, plus desks and en suite bathrooms.  The breakfast buffet is complimentary and there’s a bright restaurant serving regional cuisine, and a lobby bar. For those with a car, parking is included.

All the staff in bars and restaurants by the Old Town Square speak English these days.

The flexible breakfast times at Ibis Hotels are something I really appreciate as a busy traveler.  During the week, breakfast is served from 6.30 am – 10.00 am and at the weekend hours are from 6.30 – 11 am!  I wish more hotels around the world had such a broad time frame for breakfast – not everyone is a morning person.

Amazing flexible breakfast times at the Ibis!

The range of food available is also brilliant! Lots of tasty salads, fruit and vegetables…

Cold meat, cheese, butter. Hot sausages, scrambled eggs as well as a range of breakfast cereals, coffee, tea, juice, water…

After a busy week, again it was a case of fresh smiles, Polish welcomes and pleasant staff when I rocked up to reception at the Ibis Krakow Centrum. I also chatted to managers Krzysztof and Wojtek at length. A great, friendly atmosphere is evident here.

When you stay loyal to a brand, you get used to their style and what to expect in every city they have a hotel.
