The staff are lovely, and have plenty of recommendations for places to visit whilst in the city. They were very accommodating and booked us a tour of Birkenau-Auschwitz and the Salt Mine within a few minutes of asking. Wi-fi was... More

lovely hotel with beautifully decorated rooms, all in a different style with some quirky touches (loved the vintage style phone in our room!). Professional and polite staff. We were very impressed with the selection and quality of food for breakfast and ate in the restaurant one night too, where we had a fantastic meal with a live klezmer band playing.... More

Small and friendly hotel in the jewish quarter near city center of Krakow. Reasonable breakfast, friendly staff, old motorbikes as interior in reception area are some of the ingredients! Free WiFi - but not in all rooms - this review I have to write outside my room (a corner room). Close to the hotel is also the river where you... More

Visited this hotel through an Easyjet deal and were not disappointed. Very comfortable hotel with one of the best beds experienced in many years. It is situated in a small square in the old Jewish quarter with around six restaurants nearby (I recommend Szara Kazimierz directly opposite the hotel). The hotel staff in both the restaurant and at reception were... More
