The Pod Wawelem hotel in Krakow reminds of the Ibis budget, premier inn standard rather than the nearby Sheraton. If you are looking for budget this is the place with a good position and adequate facilities. If you are looking for style, luxury and panache this is not the choice. On a positive side, in Krakow there's so much to... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for three nights in April. The location of the hotel on the banks of the Vistula River and beside Wawel Castle is just perfect indeed this is the best city centre hotel that we have stayed in. We booked a room with a river view, Room 107 was perfect and the bathroom... More

Modern, small hotel in Krakow, on the banks of the Vistula adjacent to Wawel castle and within easy walking distance of the old town. Staff are friendly and very helpful and speak good English. Rooms are a tad on the small side (and the bathrooms are very small), but they're comfortable and well-equipped. The buffet breakfast is average and doesn't... More

We stayed with my husband for 3 nights last week in Pod Wawelem. The room was small but nice and very clean. We had a view to the river Wisla. The location for this hotel is good. It is next to Wawel Castle and only 5 minute walk to the main square. The staff was friendly and helpful and had... More

It's a nice and very comfy hotel situated in an amazing area next to Wawalem castle and the beautiful Wisła river. Me and my wife were very lucky and I think we got a really good room with amazing views from the river. Front desk reception was always helpful helping all the time. Certainly when we back one day to... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights. My room was a single room, and my first impression was the smell of the drains in the room. Unable to open the window, I was forced to put up with the smell for the duration of the stay. On checking out of the hotel I paid cash, and then later, as... More

The position was perfect, staff very kind and the cleaning too. The wifi didn't work so good. But it isn't an important thing when you're on holiday. The view of Wawelem Castle was amazing. If i'm coming back to cracow i'll go there for sure.

Nice hotel,very clean with lovely fresh towels daily. We had only a two night stay but found the hotel very comfortable. The location was excellent, far away enough from the centre to be peaceful but within east walking dstance to all the attractions. Nice view of the river and the castle which is worth a visit.
