I agree with a previous reviewer that said the best thing about this place is the location. It is in the heart of the Jewish Quarter and there are plenty of restaurants and bars on the door step and most sites are walkable from it. It is a good walk from the bus and train station though so if you're... More

Stayed here June 8 - June 12 2015. Excellent value for money. Room a little small but very clean and bathroom also very clean. Could do with a shelf in the shower to put items on. Reception staff organised trips for us with private driver to Auschwitz and Salt mines. Both excursions were well organised and driver was superb. It... More

This hotel is situated in the Jewish quarter and is small but charming. The bathroom was one of the cleanest that I have ever seen in a hotel! There is live Jewish music every day on the cobbled terrace while partaking of the excellent food. Kraków is very interesting and a visit to Auschwitz is a must.

Best thing about the hotel was the location Room was quite... cosy, not a lot of space for two adults. Bathroom was nice. Breakfast wasn't great. Just a mediocre continental spread. If we were going again we would not bother with hotel breakfast and would just eat out (it's cheap enough!). Reception staff were helpful and friendly. Restaurant staff less... More

We stayed here for 3 days and I found the location to be great in the Jewish section of Kraków. We took the trolley all around and explored the Jewish district and the Square. They had Klesmer music every evening and the food at the restaurant was great. I would stay here again!! Clean and comfortable.

Had a great 3 night short break in this hotel in mid April. Great location in the Jewish Quarter, lovely little square with restaurants and pubs and only a 15 minute walk to main square. Staff are super friendly and room was lovely. Entertainment in the hotel in the evenings was excellent. Good choice for breakfast and hot food served... More

I stayed here with two friends in Dec 2014 for three nights. The hotel is in the Jewish Quarter of Krakow and full of character. The location is great as it's close to the River Wisla, Wawel Castle and Krakow Main Square. All are within walking distance. The staff were very nice and they do a very good Irish coffee... More

Nice hotel in a perfect location, on Szeroka street in Kazimierz distrct. Service was very good and polite. Room was small, but decorated with taste, and bathroom was spacious. Bed was comfortable, but it was easy to hurt knees hitting on bed's legs when you tried to move in the room.

Ideally located in the old jewish quarter you find this little hotel. Very friendly staff welcomes you - help you with the luggage in case the lift is out of order.... The rooms are of OK size - bathrooms are small but functions OK (if you are too large I think the shower will be a challenge).WiFi is free and... More
