“Perfectly positioned to visit Auschwitz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012

If you're going to visit Auschwitz (and everyone should in my opinion!)then this is easily the most convenient place to stay, being directly opposite the main gates. My only quibble is with teh arrangements for breakfast. If you want anything cooked, you have to ask for it at the kitchen hatch otherwise it's just the standard continental fare. The problem is this isn't made clear at all so some people miss out on it. Also the two mornings we were there, only one member of staff had to cook, clear tables, refill bread/cereals etc, answer queries etc - which was woefully inadequate. Particulary on day 1 when a poor lady had to cope with a coach party on her own! Result - when we arrived just after the coach party left, it looked like a bomb had hit the place and the poor frazzled waitress/cook/cleaner was trying manfully (womanfully?) to cope with the aftermath. She had been badly let down by the management who should have known that 1 person could not possibly deal with so many customers all at the same time.

You can't get any closer to Auschwitz; the hotel is right across the street from the main entry. The hotel is fairly standard for Eastern Europe and I thought the breakfast and dinner food was fine. There is also a small, limited bar in the basement. If you are visiting Auschwitz, this is the perfect location. Quick, cheap cab ride to downtown and the shopping mall with a grocery store.

We spent one nght here, planning to visit Auschwitz before 10am (less crowded, guide not compulsory for early arrivals).
Reception staff at the hotel were fine. Our room was clean and comfortable with all the usual services. We found breakfast very satisfactory (although "instant" coffee). This certainly kept us going until 2pm. After breakfast we had a memorable visit to the concentration camps.
Overall an excellent choice: would recommend for anybody visiting Auschwitz.

Hotel Olecki is situated across the street from Auschwitz I which is the perfect location. We took a walk around the village and we weren't able to find any other hotel.
The first evening, we dined in the hotel. The soup was good, the risotto wasn't at all. Do not expect anything gastronomic about the breakfast. The eggs are cold, there's no bacon and the saucages are canned. You can only get instant coffe, if you want a real one, you have to pay extra. That is if the staff wants to make you a real coffee.
The rooms are OK.
across the road there's a little mall with places to eat as well. Do not go to the pizza place. Every type of pizza tastes the same!!
A little further there's a buffet restaurant, go there instead and pay the little extra!!

The Olecki is a decent, plain, unpretentious hotel: as others have said, just fifty metres from the entrance to Auschwitz I concentration camp (if you're not visiting the camp, you're unlikely to be staying here). Rooms are clean; furniture simple but comfortable; wi-fi good in some locations, spotty in others -- so far, so unexceptional. What gets it the five-star rating is the willingness of its staff to put themselves out on their guests' behalf. I arrived early in the morning with an extremely large group in tow: the management was most helpful in getting their baggage deposited and providing them with a good buffet breakfast. Later in the day, our lunch plans having fallen through (and with few viable alternatives available in Oswiecim), I inquired whether they might be able to help us. The entire staff, it seemed, responded by dropping whatever they were doing and whipping up an excellent meal for the group. We had to take pot-luck -- what was on the menu was whatever they happened to have in the 'fridge at the time -- but in view of the fact that we were springing a party of twenty on them at short notice they did very well to be able to accommodate us at all. The food, moreover, was well prepared and presented. Customer service of this calibre is unusual; it will certainly bring me back again in the future.
