This is a great little hotel in the Jewish quarters, easy enough to find using public transport from the airport. The hotel is within walking distance to the main square and all other attractions. The room was of a good size and standard, the bathroom was clean and the overall appearance of the hotel was great. We ate in the... More

Certainly not 4* as stated! Our room, no.22 had an overpowering smell of cigarette smoke during our 4 day stay. On our first night, just after midnight, the room above decided to move their furniture around for a full 40 minutes! Then a bit later, after managing to drop off, their was loud shouting and noise from outside, you could... More

Our room was adequate for our needs with hairdryer and bottled water. It was very clean and the service was very good providing us with clean... More

What a beautiful hotel, right in the Jewish quarter, in a beautiful square, easy to walk to the Old Town, Schindlers Factory, Wawel Castle and many other places. Service was excellent, would go back without hesitation. Comfy beds, large room, lots of space, fridge too. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
