With the MEININGER Hotel Kraków Centrum, the hotel chain is opening its first establishment in Poland today. Expansion and tapping into new markets remain at the forefront.

Comfortable and Charming - Over 100 rooms in MEININGER style

The new MEININGER Hotel Kraków Centrum is located in the Grzegórzki district and has 135 rooms with 507 beds. From private ensuite rooms to spacious shared rooms, travelers will find everything their hearts desire. Whether families, solo travelers, backpackers, business travelers, or school groups: the flexible bed structure meets the needs of the target group. True to the MEININGER style, the comprehensive amenities of the establishment in Poland include a guest kitchen, free baby cots, large communal areas, a game zone, a children's play corner, a lobby, a bar, lockers, as well as washing machines and dryers.

"Flow of Creation" design evokes wanderlust

The design, developed according to the "Flow of Creation" theme, stands for wanderlust and experiencing unforgettable moments. It is intended to encourage thinking outside the box. "Our unique establishment in the vibrant neighborhood of Grzegórzki is diverse and has something to offer all travelers. Whether a weekend trip, business trip, or school excursion - our facilities meet all needs. Yet, in line with our motto 'step out and explore,' we want to encourage our guests to discover Krakow and create unforgettable memories. The MEININGER Kraków Centrum is the ideal starting point for that," says Tobias Düssel, Regional Director at MEININGER Hotels.

Location and surroundings - Welcome to Poland!

The MEININGER Kraków Centrum is located east of the old town, amidst a group of historic houses. The main train station is within walking distance, and from there, a new train line goes to Rudzice. The Grzegórzki district exudes a lively and friendly atmosphere and offers a variety of modern conveniences. The hotel is just minutes from the city center and provides good access to Krakow's most popular attractions, as well as numerous cultural and culinary experiences and shopping locations. The Hala Targowa (flea market) is located directly opposite, but also the opera house, the botanical garden, and the Jagiellonian University, where Nicolaus Copernicus once studied, are within walking distance. And for a culinary highlight: just across from the hotel is the iconic Blue Nysa Van (Kiełbaski z Niebieskiej Nyski), a popular spot serving the best Kiełbasa (sausage) in Krakow!

Good things come in threes - MEININGER continues to expand

With the opening of the MEININGER Hotel Kraków Centrum, MEININGER celebrates its third opening in 2023: earlier in the year, the MEININGER Venezia Mestre Hotel was added to the portfolio, and on September 21, the MEININGER Hotel Cologne West opened. "We are delighted to bring the proven and successful MEININGER hybrid hotel concept to new markets, like Poland, expanding our footprint across Europe," says Ajit Menon, CEO at MEININGER Hotels. In the future, MEININGER plans to tap into more new markets with hotel openings in Barcelona, Spain, Tel Aviv.
