Upon arrival, you are driven down a scary looking alley with abandoned cars and falling down buildings. The building is very old, the staircase and floors are warped and sink in when you step on them. The furniture is old, worn out and stained. The owner was very nice, but did not speak very good English. The beds were awful.... More

We arrived at this hotel very early in the morning (around 7:00) after coming in from an overnight train from Prague. We simply wanted to drop off our bags but she had an available room ready and so the nice woman who runs the guesthouse allowed us to check into it upon our early arrival. We were so delighted because... More

The rooms are a bit basic but clean and comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and the Hotel owner is very friendly and helpful although her English is limited. It is only about 20 minutes walk into the main square accessed through a large modern shopping centre next to the main railway station. Our room over looked the main road so it... More

I spent a few days in Krakow at the Piano Guest House. The owners are very kind and attentive. They are helpful in many ways, making suggestions and giving assistance, offering a fresh and well presented spread at breakfast, keeping the rooms clean, etcetera. The bed in my room was somewhat uncomfortable, with an older mattress. However, it was well... More

We stayed for four nights at the guest house and had a wonderful time. The staff, Tadeusz and his mother, are brilliant and she makes the best continental breakfast ever!!!!! The hotel is 17th century with some original features such as a beautiful staircase. The room was clean and the en-suite was very good. Althou8ugh there is no bar, it... More

I just stayed here for a couple nights and I'm so glad I did. Safe, accessible, and the owners are so nice. I had a room facing the street but I didn't have any issue with the noise -- nothing earplugs couldn't manage. It was great to have access to the fridge to store drinks. I loved the garden and...

We spent four nights here last week and if you're looking for something a bit different to the normal travelodge-type cheap hotels, this is ideal. It's a bit of a walk (10-15 mins) into town and perhaps not in the nicest area, but the owners were so helpful and welcoming. Would recommend to anyone on a budget.

Not much to look at from the outside, once inside the warmth and hospitality from the owners (mother and son) was second to none. Quite old fashioned in a cosy sort of way. Myself, sister and neice stayed for 4 nights in a 3 bedded bedroom. Very spacious, with an en suite, and a little terrace with a table and... More

We stayed four nights at the Piano guest house. If we had seen the properties adjacent to the guest house we wouldn't have booked as they are really run down. The lady and son owners were very friendly on our arrival and we were given coffee and cake. We asked about trips to Auschwitz and the salt mine and the... More

Bedrooms are nice and spacious…if you are looking for a place with a TV then this is not for you since there is no TV available so if you are staying for a few nights and want to spend some time in the room chilling then is no good either, but if you need a place to sleep at…clean and... More
