We lived here on a choir trip where we had opted for the cheapest option since most members are students. If you mostly care about a bed and a bathroom this hotel is ok, but it is very low standard and worn. No AC so it was very warm. Free wifi in lobby. Tesco is right next door with a... More

Not the best of places to stay. More hostel than hotel. Compared with some other slightly more expensive hotels. I would recommend you pay the extra. Very limited breakfast selection, although saying that, the staff were very nice and helpful.

This isn't a hotel to spend all day in it. It's just a place to come late in the evening, sleep, have breakfast and go on with your affairs in Krakow. I guess, that it's foreseen for groups that arrived to Krakow for an excursion, since they usually spend all day downtown and come to the hotel very tired only... More

No frills hotel, quite possibly the most depressing building to look at inside and out. Rooms are falling to pieces, beds uncomfortable but we were only staying for a stag do so were rarely in the room. Breakfast looked terrible aswell, plate of hotdogs and bits of chicken. Good wifi if you get room 1 tho fades away by room... More

First off, what do you expect for 11 Eur person/night with breakfast included, a 5-star hotel resort perhaps? Keep dreaming. Meanwhile, in the real world, this is very budget friendly place for staying a couple of days. Sure, the beds are too hard, only one window opens in the entire room and the bathroom (though enormous) lacks any sort of... More

The breakfast buffet was very good, good parking. The hotel prices are very favorable. Quick easy access to the city center. The staff is friendly and well prepared. Hotel is good for mall prices.I was satisfied!

Not even worth the name of an hotel. Indeed, the letter "L" is not lighted, so it is a "hote". It's an old, dirty hostel. The beds fall apart, the towels are gray, with holes and fall apart into threads; if you're able to turn a shower on, you're not able to turn it off. We asked for another room,... More

The worst hotel I've been ever. Dirty, smelly ugly rooms! Something remained from 70's. Pictures are simply fake! The biggest cheat in Hotel business I've experienced ever. Keep out and avoid to book it! After 20 minutes we left. The only good thing was the free wifi, which helped to find another hotel. Receptionist guy was nice, but what he... More
