Excellent location; comfortable accommodation and obliging staff - it's all been said before and was consistent with our experience of staying at the Globtroter. Thank you to all the staff. Try breakfast at Bistro Charlotte across the Szczepanski square. You are unlikely to be disappointed.

We stayed at Globtroter in May 2014 and had a wonderful experience there. It has such unique character, set amidst a beautiful garden. The entrance to Globtroter is on a lively square with lots of restaurants and nightlife, but the guest house is set far off the street and is very quiet. The staff is helpful--we appreciated that they made... More

I stayed at Globtroter in April 2004, on my maiden solo backpacking trip of Eastern Europe. It is great to see that 10 years later, the quality of this guest house has remained consistent judging from the good reviews. Warm reception from friendly staff. My room was en-suite and everything was neat, clean and modest. There were no breakfast but... More

Location of the Globtroter is spot on, staff are helpful and organised our day trips at a reasonable price. Room was perfectly fine and would recommend as a cheap and convenient place to stay in Krakow.

My room was quite spacious with lots of shelving and space to unpack your suitcase, The hot pot in the room and the community fridge made it easy to have breakfast in the room. There are certainly plenty of breakfast options nearby but I enjoyed the convenience of having a quiet breakfast in the room. To echo other reviews, the... More

The Globtroter is nicely located near tasty breakfast and dinner restaurants. The rooms were quiet and clean with nice beds and showers. the courtyard is nice for a before-dinner drink and the staff were friendly and helpful. I recommend this hotel for comfort and value!

The Globtroter Guest House is a nice hotel with a spacious room and a spacious bathroom (a luxury in Europe). Our room was right in the nice flower garden. The beds were comfortable and clean. There is a club just a few steps away from the guest house and several restaurant along the street.

My wife and I recently spent 3 nights at the Globtrotter. The location is ideal in that is located on a small square just one street away from the main square in Krakow. You have to access the guest house through an enclosed building so from the street one would never know that this Krakow oasis even exists. Our room... More

This was my favorite hotel of our 2-week trip. We (mother and daughter) stayed here 3 nights. The location is a prime attraction--so close to everything. The Old Town Market is a block away, and the new town mall and bus station are a 10-15 minute walk. The other reviews are accurate--the garden drew me to the site,and it was... More

We had a great 5 night stay. It is very close to the main square and within walking distance of all the prime Krakow sights. The hotel staff was extremely nice and most helpful. Our room, actually 2 rooms, was large with a large bathroom and shower. The hotel is in an inner courtyard so is off the street and... More
