I stayed here for 3 nights in June of 2014. The lobby has a beautiful staircase. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. I was especially impressed with the size of the bathroom and all of the counter space. Often times, in European hotels, there is nowhere to put your toiletries but there was an... More

We have just returned from a 5 day trip to Krakow. This hotel is fantastic. We were welcomed warmly upon arrival by the concierge and the service throughout our stay was outstanding. The hotel is a masterpiece. It is immaculately clean and our room was a good size with a very comfy bed. We had no issue with the water... More

If there was a Motel 6 from 1912, I hazard a guess it would be this experience. The hotel isn't bad, it's just very average with a really nice staircase in the middle. That said, it's location is excellent. The parts of the hotel from 1912 are kind of cool, it's all the other really old stuff that has been... More

This hotel is really old, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. There is a lot of character in this hotel and it is in an excellent location just down the street from the main square. We stayed in this hotel in August and it was extremely hot in the rooms and there is no air conditioning like most European... More

Not the best. We and my3 friends just spent a long weekend here. Despite booking months ago on arrival we were told that there wasn't a room for 2 of us.The previous occupants were supposedly sick. We had to stay in another hotel for a night. The sickness thing I suspected was a rouse as my bag had "overbooked" placed... More

The hotel is operating over 100 years and you still feel the athmosphire. Unfortunately only little renovating has been made so the rooms are quite shabby. The room was clean but not very comfortable, the bathroom very spacious with bathtube. One did not feel very well welcomed, you just got the key. signed the registration form and that's all. The...

Don't be under any illusions, whilst this place claims to be 4* it definitely ain't. However, what it is is a basic, clean, inexpensive hotel close to everything. And if that is all you're looking for in a Krakow hotel then you can't go far wrong with this place. All the other reviewers are raving about the old-fashioned style opulence,... More
