4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a very nice hotel for three stars, starting with the marble frontage. Staff were welcoming and friendly, as well as being very efficient. The room was on the small side, but charmingly decorated, in keeping with the old buildings in this quarter. The room had air conditioning, which was welcome, but our room also looked out over the...

I stayed at this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews. I like old European hotels that do not want to leave their past behind. This hotel met that criteria. Old, charming yet comfortable. Off course it has all the modern amenities one needs, a modern elevator, new bathrooms, and other upgrades, yet it feels old and nostalgic. Staff was extra ordinary... More

This is a very fine hotel with nice and very clean rooms and premises. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel can arrange for transportation to/from the airport which worked out very well. The hotel is somewhat off the main square but close to the old Jewish quarter - not a bad location. The breakfast buffet is good.

About a 15 minute walk from the main square and right next to the Jewish district, Hotel Columbus is in a good location to explore Kraków. The hotel itself was very comfortable with a king size bed in the room, which was spotlessly clean. Included breakfast was also good, served 7:30 till 10:30. Helpful staff at desk helped us with...

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I visited Poland or the Hotel Columbus. But it was a lovely surprise. Krakow is a truly fantastic place to visit. A friend booked the hotel on recommendation of another friend. There are lots of comments already on Trip Advisor about the Hotel Columbus so I knew it was going to be... More

Fantastic hotel. Great location, only 10 minutes walk up the Main Street to the main square and only 2 mins to the Jewish quarter where there are some great restaurants and bars. The hotel really is perfect. Its exceptionally clean (and believe me- I have very high standards), comfy bed and great shower. We had a room at the back... More

My wife and I have just returned from a four night stay at the Hotel Columbus, Krakow. Great city and very clean, as was the Columbus. Located in the Jewish quarter, we could not have picked a better position - loads of restuarants within 200m and all very good - in fact one is spolit for choice. Also only a... More
