The Pod Wawelem is an excellent hotel. The rooms are clean and well maintained with some lovely views of the Castle and Vistula river. What makes this hotel really special is the staff. All the people there were helpful, polite and good natured. Even though everybody seemed to work incredibly long hours they were still smiling and friendly. These people... More

Beautiful place and nice atmosphere. Only few minutes to old town and to the castle of Wawel. Everything was perfect and christmas market was excellent with nice atmosphere. Walking in old town is beautiful.

Excellent on all levels situated right underneath Wawelem Castle on the river and still only 5 minutes from City centre could not rate this highly enough for the price. Nice breakfast didn't try the rooftop restaurant but looked nice enough. Kraków is not expensive to eat and drink visit to Auschwitz and Shindler,s Factory very good.

When I was planning my trip, I found the location was really convenience. I arrived and saw that it was right below the castle plus river Wisła was next to it. Every evening I liked to walk along the riverbank. Within 10 minutes walk I could be in the main square. The room was clean and spacious.

Not affordable to back packers but very affordable to middle class group. Great simple breakfast. Superb rooftop restaurant for dinner. Rooms simple and small but staff are courteous and smiling always. Even toiletries are mini size . Maybe too simple but free wifi and the price very good. Stay simple. Stay here.
