It's been a few years since I had stayed at this hotel, but I never had a chance to post a review...and it was such a wonderful stay in a great location. Krakow is a beautiful city and so many of the sites you want to see are within walking distance of this hotel. And the "walking" is nothing strenuous,... More

Just arrived from my Polish 6 days travel. This hotel stands-out from the rest I lodged. Location is perfect : its roofdeck restaurant overlooks the River Vistula ; a stone throw -away from Wawel Castle and Cathedral ; five minutes walk to the Old Town Main Square ; easy access for jogging along the river's boulevard. Hotel itself is just... More

The Pod Wawelem is a clean middle-class hotel located next to the Wawel castle.You find the centre of Kraków at walking distance and the Vistula river is at its doorstep. Staffs are friendly. Breakfast is average. Build in 2006 the hotel offers 48 air-conditioned rooms. Our relatively small non-smoking room had a good double-bed. The adequately furnished room had a... More

We stayed for five nights in May. Hotel is in a lovely situation next to the castle and river. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Room was small but very clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was not extensive but perfectly adequate. We didn't have any other food in the hotel as we like to go out and try different restaurants.... More

Nice reasonably priced. Great location and very nice rooftop terrace with view of river and castle. Nothing fancy but clean and well run. Breakfast is simple buffet so don't expect big spread. Plenty of food options nearby though. A few steps from river that has nice path for morning run or walk.

I booked a deluxe room, not quite my definition of deluxe but comfortable enough. Plenty hot water, but shower head rather poor quality and noisy. No large wraparound bath towels but that just happens to be my preference. Loved the location, within walking distance of main attractions. Good view of the river and castle from the mini balcony.

Stayed here at the end of March. Nice helpful desk staff. Good location. Perfect views of Castle and river. Room we had a castle and river view room. Was amazed to find it was a suite. Breakfast was fine and loved the rooftop bar. Very good stay will definitely be back.
