The hotel is located just in front of the castle and it has the beginning of pedestrian area in its back, so the market square and the core of the Krakow town are really close, meanwhile you can leave your car in safe underground park the other side of the road.

Situated at the foot of wawel hill and the castle and within walking distance of the old town and cloth market. This was our second time to stay and we previously recommended it to another couple. Rooms are large and clean, Malecon restaurant downstairs is fine but nothing special, the upstairs restaurant has fabulous views on a fine day and... More

This hotel is in the best possible place in Krakow. Situated right next to the castle, cathedral and river. It is about 5 mins walk to the main square in the old town and about 10 mins walk to the jewish quarter. The room was spotless and plenty of space for clothes etc. The air conditioning worked perfectly and when... More

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.
