When planning our trip to Krakow, I spent a lot of time researching three-star hotels and Columbus had the best reviews by some distance. We made a reservation for four nights over the Easter weekend. I arranged airport transfers through the hotel and all emails were answered immediately in impeccable English. The rates were incredibly reasonable and we were met... More

Stayed here for four nights in late March/early April. The pros; very good location on a main road, easy to find. It's a 15 min walk straight into the heart of the main square in the old town, and less than 5 minutes to the Kazimeierz area, where some of the best restaurants are located. The hotel is fairly small,... More

This hotel is on a main street 10 mins from city square. Plenty trams and taxis outside. But hotel is quiet, rooms very clean and staff very helpful and friendly. There is not real restaurant or bar but breakfast is good but with only scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage as hot options. Hotel is very close to restaurants in Kazimierz... More

This was our first visit to Kraków and we chose this hotel after reading all the favourable reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed with our choice as the hotel is ideally located just around the corner from the Jewish quarter and 15 mins walk from the main square in the Old Town. Our room was comfortable, spacious and... More
