Opole is a cute little city that should really be visited more by overland tourists because of its location. It’s a great halfway marker between Wrocław and Kraków, with one of the prettiest squares in Poland and some truly creative bars and cafés. You won’t be stuck for options on where to stay, as this list covers the entire spectrum from budget backpackers to luxury business travellers.

Some of the most beautiful hotels and places to stay in Poland are not actually in the cities themselves, and this is the case with the Gospoda Pod Złotą Koroną Hotel. The Gospoda Pod Złotą Koroną Hotel is actually in Grotowice, which is a small countryside village with a church and a direct bus route to Opole. The hotel has a bar and restaurant and Wi-Fi on the ground floor. Parking is free, breakfast is included, and all rooms have a TV and air conditioning.
For a slice of luxury by the river in Opole, stay at the DeSilva Premium Hotel. The idyllic riverside location is a perfect place to relax, and, within the grounds, the reason for its four-star label is clear for all to see. All 110 smoke-free guestrooms have free Wi-Fi. There is a 24-hour fitness centre to complement a bar and restaurant. There are safes in each room, air conditioning and a tea and coffee maker.
Szara Willa is a rather cosy and cool option in central Opole, not far from the city’s best bars and restaurants. However, the hotel has its own well-recommended restaurant and a lively pub that serves good cocktails. Plus unusually there is bowling available, as well as a fitness centre and a children’s club. There is free Wi-Fi and air conditioning in every room, and you can also order a massage in your room.
Hotel Kamienica is modern, clean and simple. It is a low-key hotel with four floors situated just a short five-minute walk from Opole’s main square. There is a cheap Biedronka supermarket opposite, a Thai restaurant inside and a comfortable bar, too. Breakfast, Wi-Fi and air conditioning are all standard.
A popular and modern venue in Opole, Hotel Weneda has a bar and restaurant as well as an outdoor terrace. There is Wi-Fi available throughout, and rooms have air conditioning. It is just over ten minutes’ walk from the main train station, and rooms are generally wood furnished with white painted walls. There is car parking available, but you have to pay extra for it.
The cheap and budget hostel option in Opole is the colourful Event Hostel, which has cosy shared dorms. It is one of the cheapest places to stay in the city. But the coolest thing about Event Hostel is that rooms all have their own theme – for example there is a ‘music room’, a ‘fun lab room’ and an ‘active room’. The hostel has a self-catering kitchen, organises events, and has a cool ‘bookcrossing’ library where visitors can leave, take and exchange books.
