CONCLUSION

The Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Krakow is a very new and modern hotel which opened late last year and is connected to the Hampton by Hilton Krakow. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by Ana, one of the friendly receptionists working that day and was assigned room 523. She gave us informations about the facilities of the hotel and its opening hours, etc., and before we left, we received their signature cookies which tasted very good, as always. The room we got was a very nice room and we actually loved its design. There was a welcome gift as well and a welcome letter from Ms. Karolina Czyz, from the Concierge Team. I have previously received an email from her about a week prior to our arrival introducing us to their hotel and its services and we really appreciate the gesture as it only showed they wanted to make sure we would enjoy our stay in their hotel. The Executive Lounge had really great offering during the evening cocktail specially the beef goulash. Although the lounge was not that big, it never got crowded during our stay. We opted to have our breakfast in the main restaurant, as I have Diamnod status and which we enjoyed very much as they had an extensive offering in the buffet. A tip to other travelers: the pool and the sauna are two things not to be missed here during your stay. Because the hotel is not located in the city, you would have to take the tram which is about a 15-minute ride and which I think is the only downside if you really prefer staying in the city. We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and with their great staff, lovely rooms and facilities, we would definitely be back here on our next visit to Krakow. To all the staff of Double Tree by Hilton Krakow Hotel & Convention Center, "Dziękuję Ci"!
