For the second time in 4 years i stayed at Hotel Tournet. This time I took one of the bigger rooms instead of one the basic ones as it was only an extra 5 or so Euro per night. The size of the room was at least double that of the basic with two narrow single beds, a more spacious bathroom, and plenty of room for storage and moving about in.
Breakfast no longer is picked up in a brown paper bag at reception. They now have a proper breakfast room in the basement with a decent variety of meats, cheese, scrambled egg, cereal, bread, etc, but like all the hotels I stayed in in the region, including much more expensive ones, poor quality orange juice.
There is a lot of work going on at the Tournet as they are putting in a lift. The drilling began around 8am but I'm sure that is just temporary.
In the bathroom I found that the water blasted out of the sink tap and shower or did not come out at all. It took some time to get it to come out gradually. My bathroom sink was blocked up but was fixed promptly on request.
The staff are very friendly, helpful, and fluent in English.
The room also had a radiator that provided plenty of heat, a small table and chair, a small TV with BBC World, and there was plenty of cutlery (and I believe a kettle).
Needless to say the location is still great with plenty of shops, restaurants, and public transportation nearby.
Another reviewer mentioned poor Wifi strength in some rooms. I was on about the third floor yet at no time did I have any connecting problems.
One minor issue was that the automatic lights that were supposed to come on in the dark stairways didn't work very well. I made a point of carrying a small flashlight when I left the room at night.
For less than 30 Euro per night (in March) Hotel Tournet is a still a very good budget option. It'll be my choice next visit to Krakow.
