March 20th - it
seems always prudent to make a room reservation as early as
Unless you employ a competent tour operator,
it’s advisable to book a room directly either by contacting the
hotel in Krakow you want to stay at or via its web site. Various
online booking services may look convenient and tempt with discounts
but they often cannot deliver. Firstly, Krakow’s hotels cancel
reservations when overbooked. Secondly, some web operations are just
unreliable. Also, it’s usually possible to negotiate a better price
without middlemen and their profit margins.
When booking a room don't forget to inquire about additional
services such as transportation from and to the
airport or train station (some of hotels in the city operate their
own car fleets for convenience of their guests).
Please note that in the high season, i.e. April through October,
Krakow’s hotel rates usually rise by 30 to 40 percent.
