My single room was tiny but perfectly adequate, with lots of storage space. Breakfast (included in the price) was excellent - good value for money. The restaurant is excellent too - traditional Polish food. There is no natural light in the stairwell, which consequently was rather gloomy. But all in all this is a hotel of character and charm. It... More

The location is great, and the restaurant is spectacular. It shows it's age in places but that is what you can expect from a place with"charm". Highly recommended. The restaurant alone is worth a visit. Very traditional Polish food

Coming to this hotel and looking out the windows you can see why everybody wanted to invade and take over this beautiful city! Me and all my family have been coming to this hotel for the last 5 years and I would not stay anywhere else in krakow! We book and choose our rooms through a member of staff via... More

This was once a beautiful hotel and visitors can still enjoy the art deco touches that abound. The location is ideal, right on the edge of the Old Town, just under Wawel Castle. Everything you'll want to see, including Kazimierz, is in easy walking distance. The rooms are simple but they are clean and provide everything you'll want, except air... More

This hotel has a great location, beautiful rooms with great facilities. The only drawback may be the noise from the trams, but to me it does not interfere. It is also less of a problem with orientation at the hotel, I walked back door because it was in my room easier. Into this hotel, I would definitely like to return.... More

Booked a room and found out that it is in the second building. Lucky the porter helped me to find the room. Take note of the directions when you go to your room because it may not be simple. It is like a "maze" as the old and so called new buildings are on the different levels. Lots of stairs...... More

Good location, near the castle. Old style décor, bit faded but not without character. Great breakfast, lousy wifi connection. Some staff more helpful than others. Tip: don't let them book a cab for you, it costs a fortune. But tours from hotel were good value (I went to Auschwitz one day, Salt Mines the next). Room was a bit warm... More

Just got back from a weekend in Krakow and would definitely recommend this hotel. Location is perfect - just far enough away from the old square to be out of the hustle and bustle but close enough for it to be a short walk to restaurants and bars. Opposite Wawel castle too which is also convenient. Rooms are a great... More

You can’t ask more from a hotel than that it’s ideally located, the grub is good, the beds are comfortable and that it looks good on photos. The Royal Hotel Krakow is one of the best value hotels I’ve stayed in. Plus it has character just oozing from it. You might imagine it in a bye-gone era, horse drawn carriages... More
