TravelSupermarket can help you to find the best Poland hotels, whatever your destination...
With majestic cities and a remarkable patchwork of natural landscapes, it can be difficult to know where to land when you plan a trip to Poland. Cities such as Krakow show off architectural wonders by day, before night comes and the party gets started. Horse-drawn carriages tour the streets of destinations like pretty Poznan, where brightly painted houses turn heads. Beautiful Gdansk, on the shores of the Baltic Sea, lures visitors looking for romance at the water’s edge. And the snowy winter peaks of the Tatra Mountains bring skiers to cheerful resorts such as Zakopane.
There is so much to do, so much to see, feel and taste in Poland, that one visit will probably not be enough. If you do have time on your side, find cheap flights to Poland with TravelSupermarket and stay for a week or two. For many visitors to Krakow, Auschwitz is a pilgrimage that must be taken. And with good-value car hire you can explore at your leisure and see even more of the country during your trip. You could, for example, land at Krakow’s airport in winter and spend a night or two in the city (maybe enjoying the pleasures of the Christmas Market) before taking to the slopes at Zakopane, which is 2.5 hours away by road. With national parks and hilltop castles also on the doorstep of the city, you begin to get an idea of the diverse experiences you have in store when you linger a little longer in Poland.
Wherever you choose to take your break – and however long you stay for – you can save money on your ideal hotel in Poland when you compare prices using the TravelSupermarket search tool.
Whether you opt for basic, cheap hotels in Poland or splash out on luxury accommodation, we can help you to make savings on your next trip...
So, where will you stay? Accommodation in Poland is of a generally high standard and you can check in at your favourite brand of hotel if you wish. Hotel companies such as Sheraton, Sofitel, Radisson Blu, Hilton and InterContinental welcome guests across Poland.
In Warsaw, Poland’s enchanting capital, good tourist hotels are located in Old Town (Stare Miasto) and New Town (Nowe Miasto). New Town is more historic than its name suggests and these districts combine to make a wonderful place to stay either way, with hotels to suit every style and budget.
Elsewhere, the historic heart of Krakow is the best place to look for hotels if you hope to be in the middle of the action. With bars, restaurants, shops and a heap of attractions such as Wawel Castle on the doorstep, you cannot go wrong with Krakow hotels in the Old Town (Stare Miasto in Polish).
Other major city destinations in Poland include Lodz, Wroclaw, Poznan, Gdansk, Katowice, and Lublin. Visitors to any can expect a diverse mix of hotels. The lower end of the market brims with budget guesthouses, while, at the top end, luxury hotels offer amenities such as swimming pools, excellent restaurants, and spas. From ski lodges and seaside pads, to family hotels and forest-wrapped castles, there is no end of wonderful accommodation options in Poland.
It is, however, wise to book early during the busy summer months and in the run-up to Christmas, when festive markets grace the city streets.
Poland, known for its wealth of art and culture, has a vast range of attractions...
Top five attractions
Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and State Museum
This former Nazi concentration camp now serves as a moving and poignant memorial to the estimated 1.1 million people who died there during the Second World War.
Galicia Jewish Museum
Located in Krakow’s historic district of Kazimierz, the museum is home to a photographic exhibition chronicling the lives and times of the people who lived locally and the culture that dominates the area.
Palace of Culture and Science
Poland’s tallest building has some of the best views in Warsaw. They are your reward for climbing to the 30th floor.
With an elaborate statue of Neptune as its focal point, the attractive Long Market of Gdansk is not to be missed. The Long Market itself is actually a large public square surrounded by decorative buildings and dotted with cafes and bars.
An unusual attraction in Wroclaw, the Raclawice Panorama is a huge painting that wraps, like a cylinder, around a platform from which you can take in a 360-degree view.
Poland hosts many annual events. Here are just three of the best…
Topienie Marzanny; March: A strange ceremony in which the winter witch, ‘Marzanna’, is publically drowned in Warsaw to mark the start of spring. Lots of drinking then ensues, and no actual witches are harmed.
Festival Season; July: Krakow is home to several festivals in July, including the Summer Jazz Festival, International Street Theatre Festival, Crossroads Festival of Folk Music, and the Summer Organ Festival.
Warsaw Film Festival; October: A huge showcase for Polish and international film that draws international acclaim.
