Hotel Olecki in Oswiecim - opposite the concentration camp

So, if you go to Auschwitz, then you needwill stop somewhere and spend the night. Although, if you come in the morning to spend the whole day on visiting the camps, and in the evening you go back, then the overnight stay is no good. It didn’t work out for me, I arrived in Auschwitz in the evening, so that, having slept well, I would start the inspection in the morning. I'll tell you what kind of hotel I chose. It will also be helpful to read how to get to Auschwitz.

By the way, as usual, I read the reviews before, andhesitated, some scolded him. Upon arrival at the hotel, once again I realized that it was not always possible to trust the reviews, the feeling that the people had turned up a little easier. The hotel is quite normal.

Hotel Olecki

When I went to the hotel, I wondered if I woulddream nightmares, because he is so close to the concentration camp. But everything was fine, being in the hotel, nothing reminded me of this neighborhood at all. And the next day, walking through the concentration camp, I can not say that there is really terrible, because a lot of people, the atmosphere is felt with difficulty.

Price and reservation

I guess the price is changing, but I booked advance on site for 39 euros, at the reception the price was higher than the interest by 20%. The price includes free breakfast. Before the growth of the euro, the price turned out very much even now, now it is more expensive, but what to do.

I watched other hotels, but just on footAccessibility from the railway station and concentration camps was nothing, at least in this price category. If you are by car, then of course, you can stop in any part of the city.

Interior room

The rooms are small, everything is new, clean. Refrigerator, TV, enough outlets. I had 2 beds in the room, I don’t know if there are options with two double beds, but when one night is over all, it doesn’t matter.

The internet was ok. But, as I understand it, it only works near the reception, in the rooms on the ground floor and in the restaurant. I was living on the feather floor, everything worked without failures.

Breakfast

Honestly, free breakfasts are so-so,The choice is quite small. Cereal with milk, tea, coffee, cheese / sausage sandwiches and some vegetables. In principle, I am not particularly pretentious, and often it is with buters (or their derivatives) that I have breakfast, so it was normal for me. The main tea was green ... It is a pity that the packaged.

Infrastructure and location

Straight about the hotel there is nothing. The nearest grocery store (even two) are located near the railway station Auschwitz. And if you go a little further, there will be a large shopping center with Carrefour. By car, in general, there are no problems to get there, and on foot you will have to walk a little more than 20 minutes.

But the hotel is well located relativelyconcentration camps Auschwitz 1, directly across the street from the entrance to the territory. That is, you can come, leave the car in the free parking lot of the hotel, and on foot (100 meters) go on an excursion. Next, go on the shuttle bass to Auschwitz 2 and come back.
