The Superior Room
Once I arrived at Vienna House Andel’s Cracow, I was given the Superior room – a luxurious room equipped with a double bed, a very fancy bathroom with both a shower and bathtub (with a beautiful neon lighting option – perfect for that relaxing bath after a long day of sight-seeing), LCD TV with DVD and CD player, super-fast free WIFI, a big safe, minibar with luxury coffee and tea making facilities, daily digital newspaper, DVD library and the option to have free breakfast delivered to my room – what else do I need? This is perfect.
After stepping out the lift, I was faced with various room doors, all of which were designed very well. Once I opened the door to my room, I was amazed to see such a beautiful room layout with lots to offer and presented very well. I’m not even sure where to begin.
Hopefully, the pictures above will get my point across, but let’s just say, I was extremely pleased with everything the room had to offer.
Also, I would like to thank Lukas for the amazing welcoming gift.
Dining at Vienna House Andel’s Cracow:
For my first night stay at Andel’s Cracow, I was excited to try out their dishes. I went for taglitelle chicken and spinach dish. It was delicious. For the cost of £6 it was superb. The presentation was great too. Yet another glass of Italian Chardonnay was accompanied beside this dish. The wine of which I’ve just taken a sip of as of writing this sentence.
Amenities & Entertainment:
Vienna House Andel’s Cracow has a spa and fitness studio available to every guest at the hotel. They also have a sauna and massages available – I booked in for a massage on Sunday night. Considering I booked quite late at 6pm, they still organised a massage for me later that night at 7:45pm. The massage was great and really made me feel relaxed afterward. I couldn’t help but get into that bathtub with the neon lights straight after dinner and a few more glasses of the Italian Chardonnay – which I highly recommend. This completed my night.
