This hotel transports you into another time with its decor and its a very pleasent experience. The staff are very helpfull and friendly even going as far as knocking the door to see if you would like some sweets or any help. I had a street side room right by a busy all night shop and I was not disturbed... More

Grand by name grand by nature. Came to Krakow and stayed 4 nights 16 years since my third business trip to Poland. Our very large room was clean, comfortable and had a well stocked frig which had enough room to take our purchases from across the road as well. Breakfasts were superb with a large choice of hot and cold... More

Stayed two nights. Requested a non-smoking double with a bath tub as some of the rooms advertised on the hotel website had bath tubs and others did not. We had a morning flight to Krakow and arrived at the hotel around 11am. There were no applicable rooms ready, and we left our bags at the hotel to do some sightseeing.... More

Very nice hotel just in the middel of the old part of Krakow and close to all the historical places and buildings. The hotel in it self is a part of history and full of historical photos. It is possible to bring your car when paying for the parking.

This is a lovely old building with great charm and authentic 19th c character and the location, close to Krakow main square, is unbeatable. It does rate itself as a 5 star, presumable based on the architecture, and because of this presumption I feel justified in marking the Grand quite harshly. There are no facilities normally expected of a 5... More

Beautiful old world charm. Lots of glitz, chandeliers, marble and opulence but poor to no air conditioning. The hotel was located a block from Cloth Hall and the Main Square. No need to pay for a more expensive hotel on the square because this location is close and away from the noise of the square. Lots of restaurants to close... More

We stayed for 3 nights-the staff are very helpful and the hotel linked transport excellent. However be aware of the street noise if at the front of the hotel-late night revellers.The free wifi is patchy but you can pay for a better line which should not be the case in a 5 star hotel.The ensuite was functional and lacking extraction...

Visited Krakow during EURO 2012 and stayed at the Grand Hotel. Decided i wanted to return to Krakow and stay at the the Grand. Recommended Krakow and the Grand to my daughter who had a very enjoyable stay last February and I returned in April bringing my wife. We both had a great time and she wants to return.
