We stayed at the Wentzl last week and like all the previous reviewers were very impressed. Arriving at midnight we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to room 45 (had booked 42). Room 45 was delightful and cannot be faulted in any way,loved the view,the decor and the room amenities. We were not bothered by noise from the square at... More

The Wentzl was simply first rate. Beautiful decor in rooms and throughout the hotel, perfect location overlooking the largest medieval square in Europe. Staff, especially Aleksandra, were most helplful with suggestions and arrangements. Look no further for a place to stay in Krakow, which is an amazing city to visit.

Wanted a nice, centrally located hotel for a four day visit to Krakow and chose the Hotel Wentzl based on TA reviews and location. My expectations were on the high end of reasonable but I was blown away. The location could not have been better (right on the old market square) and our room was opulent and comfortable. It felt...

I visited this hotel during a business trip. The hotel is perfectly located in the old town main square, this is unbeatable. Other than that, I didn't find anything special about the hotel. The rooms are very old, maybe someone like that flavor, but to my it was too old, with squeaky floors and furniture, very little illumination, etc. My... More

Very nice room and staff was extremely friendly. I will recommend anyone to stay at the wentzl. Bed was very comfortable. Location is the best in all of Kraków as it is directly on the town square and about a mile walk from Wawel. St. Mary's basilica is just a few steps away.

We spent one night in Krakow. I had researched many hotels really wanting a Marriott near town. That way I knew what I was getting in a hotel and sometimes with European travel, the local hotels are not what the pictures show them to be! There wasn't a Marriott but I saw this hotel! I can not say enough amazing... More

This hotel is fabulous. When checking in, you are greeted with photos of Hilary Swank, Sting and others who stayed here, and you will see why. The décor and service are superb and the location cannot be surpassed -- on the edge of the bustling, fascinating square in the heart of the city. Inside, the rooms are lush and elegant:... More

The shower room was very nice but lacked somewhere to put your toiletries. We ate... More

One does not get more central in Krakow than hotel Wentzl. The great square and Cloth Hall are directly under your window in this delightful small hotel. The size of the rooms varies some, but all have hugely tall ceilings. The height of the room must be around five meters, with large beams in the ceilings. The decor is peaceful... More
