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.

Pod Wawelem offered an ideal location, central to all the districts of Krakow, with excellent facilities. The room was well designed and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent value for money. Staff were helpful. We shall certainly revisit.

We were passing through Krakow to visit Auschweits. We needed a nice hub for our journey and got a great price for this hotel. It is in a nice location- the view of the Castle is fab from here and it is in walking distance of both the Jewish Quarter and the Main Square. The hotel staff were friendly and... More

My wife & I stayed her for 4 nights after seeing this hotel on a previous visit. The hotel is right beside Wawel Castle and right on the river Wisła. I would recommend paying the extra for a river view room! The hotel is a 5-10 Minute walk to the main square in Krakow which is better as it is... More
