When I went to the hotel, I wondered if I would have nightmares, After all, he is so close to the concentration camp. But no, everything was fine, being in a hotel nothing reminded me of it the neighborhood. And the next day, walking through the concentration camp, I can not to say that there is really terrible, because so many people the atmosphere is felt with difficulty.
Price and reservation
I assume that the price varies, but I booked the Hotel Olecki in advance on the site for 39 euros, at the reception price was higher by 20%. The price includes free breakfast. Before growth rate of the euro, the price was very good, now more expensive, but what to do.
I watched other hotels, but it was within walking distance from the railway station. stations and concentration camps there was nothing, at least in this price category. If you are by car, then of course you can generally in any part of the city to stay. Do not forget to check discounts on Roomguru service, where you can see prices for the same hotel in different booking systems.
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 any options with two doubles, but when one overnight stay is total, it is not fundamentally.

For some reason, two beds, and not one double

Honestly, free breakfast is so-so, the choice is quite small. Milk flakes, tea, coffee, cheese / sausage sandwiches and some vegetables. Basically, I’m not particularly pretentious, and often it is with boomers (or their derivatives) that I have breakfast, so I it was normal. The main tea was green tea. It is a pity that packaged
Breakfast is modest, there was still bread of various kinds.
Infrastructure and location
Straight about the hotel there is nothing. Nearest grocery store (even two) are located near the railway station Auschwitz. And if a little further go through, there will be a big shopping center with Carrefour. By car in general, there are no problems to get there, but on foot you will have to walk a little more 20 minutes.
But the hotel is, however, well located relative to the Auschwitz concentration camp. 1, just across the street from the entrance to the territory. That is, you can arrive, leave the car in the free parking lot of the hotel, and on foot (100 meters) go sightseeing. Next, go on the shuttle bass to Auschwitz 2 and come back.
