CONCLUSION

This is the only business class lounge at Krakow Airport which means all the premium passengers of the airlines operating here are using this lounge. The lounge itself is not very big and it actually got crowded a bit in the late afternoon during my visit. The food offering included soup, salad, cheese and bread among others while the alcoholic drinks included red and white wine, vodka and beer. It is not quite like the impressive food offering they have at Fantazja Executive Lounge at Warsaw Airport but good enough for a small airport. There is also complimentary wifi which was quite fast but power outlets near the seats were unfortunately lacking. As for the view, there is none as you can only see the wall surrounding the terminal. Lastly, the receptionist during my visit was very friendly as she allowed me to guest Mike even if we were flying on two different airlines. Maybe, they are not too strict about the rules after all. Overall, this is a basic lounge but could surely be better.
