Staying around Wroclaw Airport

If you land late in the evening or need to be at the airport early in the morning, instead of going from Wroclaw airport to city centre, you might want to stay around the airport. Unfortunately, the nearest hotel, Hotel Kosmonauty is still some way from the airport. You need to arrange a transfer or take a taxi to get there. Moreover, there is only one restaurant in the walking distance if you want to eat close to the airport. Unfortunately, this restaurant is expensive, and actually, it will be cheaper for you to dine at the airport. The closest supermarket (u Mirka) is about 1.5 km away (might be about 1 km, if the small gate in the airport fence is open, and you take the small path near the cargo terminal). The airport itself is modern but quite small, so don’t count on the duty-free shops, as there are not a lot of them at the terminal.

If you are considering coming to Poland through other airports, read our articles on getting from the airport to the centre of GdanskWarsaw, Krakow, and Poznan.
