Stayed here in January 2015, hotel was lovely, the mini bar was very handy and very good prices, which they topped up for us every day. Lovely, comfortable bed, good location and only a short walk into the centre. Breakfast was also very nice and plenty of choice.

We previously stayed at the Columbus in 2012, since then the reception area has been wonderfully updated. The room we had was similar in layout to what I remember and the bathroom still seemed brand new. There is WiFi (which I don't recall the previous visit). The AC was an absolute must as the August temps were 30 - 35C... More

I stayed here for a long weekend trip to Krakow (what a beautiful city!). I was immediately blown away by the quality of the finish of the hotel and of the polite, helpful and professionalism of ALL staff that I encountered. The rooms were beautiful. Very comfortable, nicely decorated with gorgeous bathrooms. Brilliant continental selection for breakfast. Location is absolutely... More

Stayed here for 5 nights in August 2015. Best thing about this hotel is its location. About a 10 minute walk to the Main Square and a 15 minute walk to Schindler's Factory and Ghetto Heroes Square, so no need to use public transport. It is situated along a main road and there is a tram stop outside, so would... More

We spent 3 nights in Krakow and found the Columbus Hotel exceeded our expectations. It is in a great location, mid-way between the main market square and the Jewish district and not far from the wawel castle . As a result we were able to walk to all areas with ease and enjoy the different aspects of each. The hotel... More

The location here is ideal, round the corner from the Jewish quarter, with fantastic bars, restaurants and heritage and only 15 minute walk to the old town. The hotel offers a buffet breakfast which is very good, it's spotless and the staff here really made our stay even better!

My family and I just returned from our stay at the Columbus Hotel and we are very impressed with the hotel in general. Krakow was very hot recently and the air conditioning in the room saved our lives at times. The hotel is spotless and the staff are helpful. Breakfast is ok except for a lack of variety. The selection... More

Very friendly place comfortably localized close to Main square and Jewish district. Many nice restaurants and pubs just around the corner. Clean, quiet, and spacious room. Nice staff. Tasty breakfast. Our stay was definitely worth the price.

Lovely place, friendly staff, breakfast pretty good, very well located in the city. Nice and clean rooms, fast wifi. Only thing I didn't like: reception pointed us to a parking place that's guarded 24h/7d as they don't have their own parking. Later on we found out that there are more of these parking places around and that some are cheaper... More
