My second stay at the Globetrotter in a little over 2 years. Plac Szczepanski is close enough to the main square to make everything accessible but is quiet enough to retain lots of charm with not too much noise and hustle and bustle. Had 3 nights and slept like a baby. Would definitely recommend and return.

The Globtroter Guest House is right on Plac Szczepanski near to the heart of Old Town. Walk everywhere; breakfast at Charlottes, Free Walking Tours, stroll around in the evening, and come back for a secure nights sleep. 15 minutes walk from Krakow Glowny. Always helpful and friendly. Nice!!

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel in a double on the third floor. This is an older guest house using stair case so I had to lug my luggage up 3 floors. The room is clean and has enough basic amenities like a kettle, hair dryer (available from reception) and friendly receptionists. It has the best location, so you... More

This is a gem in the heart of Kraków! Relaxing, comfortable, centrally located -- the staff was so helpful and pleasant, always there with advice and insight. Our college aged group of students loved their time in Kraków at such a wonderful location that was so welcoming -- and with local university graduates running the Globtroter -- this jewell of...

So very peaceful and yet so central in my favourite city, Cracow I spent 6 nights in May 2015. I had a singleroom with a small balcony. This is not a fancy new hotel, but it has character - and a small garden. The size of the room was good and the bed was even better :) It is very... More

Just back from a few days in Krakow. First visit but will be back. Went with my 22 year old daughter who thoroughly enjoyed her short break too. All emails to the Globtroter were answered promptly and pick up at airport as arranged by staff went without a hitch. Although I had seen pictures on the website, I still smiled... More

Globtroter has a great desk staff, all communication via email was answered quickly, our airport pickup was smooth and all tourist advise was "spot-on" during our stay. The hotel is simple decor but one step out the front door and Kraków old town is at your feet. Amazing location for an affordable price!

I stayed in a single room for 5 nights, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the room was great, very spacious and clean, with a lovely view of the courtyard/garden. The location is perfect, just a couple of minutes walk to the main square. They don't serve breakfast but there are a couple of cafes across the square... More

This place is set back from a nice square. That means it's peaceful but it can make it hard to find. And it doesn't do breakfast. Though there are plenty of breakfast options nearby.Apart from that it's wonderful.

My friends and I stayed at the Globtroter for three nights. The location couldn't have been better - a few blocks from the Main Square. The room was pleasant and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful - they arranged transfer to and from the airport and guided tours of the Salt Mine and Auschwitz. I would recommend a... More
