Very service oriented staff: helpful in finding restaurants, tours, etc. Even prepared a take-away breakfast when we were leavening for the airport at 5:00 am. Breakfast is a lovely, generous buffet, in a sunny dining room. The... More

A small but great hotel and one of the best in the Kazimierz area, the liveliest part of Krakow. Although the hotel is on a busy street it was very quiet. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was excellent. There is a small garden in the back of the hotel which provides a perfect quiet spot when one... More

Lovely hotel and really helpful staff. Location was good and literally round the corner from the jewish quarter with all the restaurants. Good price, clean rooms and excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend it. Only suggestion, tea and coffee facilities in the room would be nice. jsutcliffe.

The Columbus hotel is a very nice boutique hotel, but the location proved to be most convenient for sightseeing at Krakow's old town and the newly opened Schindlers's Factory and Pharmacy museums. As well, the hotel was within short walking distance of a number of excellent restaurants. The room was a bit small, but clean and comfortable. The staff was... More

The Hotel Columbus is well situated, just at the beginning at the Kazimierz, only a 15 minute walk to old town. It's clean, the staff is very helpful and the breakfast is good. The bed for me was horribly uncomfortable as it was hard as a rock, but my husband loved that so really that's a personal preference thing. It's... More

I recently stayed in Hotel Columbus with a couple of friends for a short break in Krakow and this hotel was flawless. We had a triple room at the front of the hotel and, despite the noise of the trams and road outside with the windows open, had no problem sleeping with them shut. The whole hotel was very clean,...
