Gaining popularity in Poland is agro tourism (agroturystyka), a small scale sustainable tourism, where you stay in the rural area often on the farm.

The cheap and cheerful options are youth hostels in the cities and mountain shelters in the mountains.
Krakow old town is beautiful and for easiest access to the restaurants, bars and shops, it's great to stay in the old town area.
Recommended Krakow hotels:
Hotel Monopol - this hotel is right on the outskirts of old town (there's a park all the way around) - slightly on the 70s/80s side but lovely service and a nice hearty breakfast.
With Warsaw, you can stay in the pretty old town or in the shopping districts, depending on what sort of break you're after.
A nice luxury hotel in Warsaw old town is Hotel Regina (room picture below) - lovely medieval looking building with plush rooms, marble bathrooms and a relaxing spa in the basement.
If you're looking for somewhere close to the business side of Warsaw and the central station, try the Warsaw Intercontinental or the Radisson Blu. Both hotels are within 10mins walk from the central station and Golden Terraces shopping centre and they have very nice big rooms, fantastic plentiful breakfasts and great pools and spa areas.
Gdansk and Sopot have plenty of hotels in Gdansk Old Town as well as beach locations near Gdansk beaches and Sopot. Being only 20 mins by train, it's actually cheaper staying in Gdansk and travelling into Sopot (or even walking) for the day.
We stayed at the unbelievably relaxing Hotel Lival - literally on Brzezno Beach in Gdansk. Try to get a sea view room. Great breakfast and nice spacious rooms.
Gdansk's first Hilton Hotel opened on the Motlawa River in 2010 - great for leisure or business with a lovely rooftop bar & sun deck and a pool!
In Sopot, you can stay at the luxuriously grand Sofitel Grand Hotel (pictured below) right on the sandy beach and you can get rooms for £80 a night in promotional periods.
Three star Hotel Mercure Lublin Centrum, located very close to the town centre, provides a great value for money. It is clean & quiet with brilliant breakfasts and a very nice staff. It has a restaurant as well.
Four star Grand Hotel Lublinianka, right at the centre of town, occupying an elegant building from the 19th century, offers more luxury, lovely big rooms and charming Belle Epoque interiors. It has a restaurant, an elegant café and a spa with reasonably priced treatments. Beautiful oval conference room is perfect to hire for important family events.
If you hire a car when in Poland, it's good to travel around to find those traditional and luxurious Spa hotels set in beautiful historic castles.
The best region with historic castles with funky original spas is in the Wroclaw region, in the south west of Poland.
A lovely one to try out is Paulinum Castle in Jelenia Gora. At around £70 for a night, this is pretty good value for such a pretty castle hotel.
Another castle hotel with a spa is Kliczkow Castle near Boleslawiec (100km from Wroclaw). They've got great winter weekend deals and special spa break offers too. You can also combine your stay in Wroclaw with a couple of nights relaxing in Kliczkow as a multi centre break.
