Venetian House is situated in the Main square..... a great base for exploring Krakow. The rooms are modern, clean and extremely well equipped.

I stayed 3 nights at the Venetian House with my sister in an apartment overlooking Krakow's Market Square. I thought it would be noisy, but it was not due to double windows. The room is large with a well equipped kitchenette, table and chairs, sofa and 2 twin beds. After traveling in Europe for 4 weeks it was wonderful to be able to cook. There is also a washer available for guests in the building's management office. The apartment is cleaned and fresh towels provided every day.

The only drawback with the apartment vs. a hotel is the front desk is only open from 9:00am to 8:00pm. If there are any problems outside of those hours, you are provided a phone number to call. Had we known about the phone number we could have taken care of our only incident. Our neighbors on the second night decided to have a celebration and kept us awake. After requesting twice for them to quiet down, they finally did at 1:30am. We told the management about it the next day and they were very apologetic and said there is an emergency number we should have called to tell them about it. Krakow has a law that there is to be no load noises after 10:00pm and the police enforce it. An hour later we had a complimentary bottle of wine at our door.

Loved the location, management, reservation staff and everything about the Venetian House.

We stayed at the Venetian House for 5 days while in Krakow. The location of this hotel couldn't be better.....We had a spacious, clean room overlooking the main square in Krakow with an amazing view!! The beds were super comfy with down comforters, the shower was large with good water pressure, and the small kitchen was great for making coffee/tea. The girls at reception were so helpful, especially when we wanted to take a taxi to the Wieliczka Salt Mines instead of a bus....they set up the meeting place with a good rate, and we called reception again when we were finished and they set up our return journey as well. The day we arrived in Krakow, they were setting up semi-permanent stalls in the main square that lasted our entire stay (don't know if they are there for the month,the summer, etc) that served THE BEST perogis we had the entire trip and amazing sausages for so little money!! The hotel didn't have breakfast, but between the perogis and all the cafes along the square and beyond, it wasn't a big deal. The cafes on the square were pretty reasonable for the amazing people watching and beautiful view.....Cafe Hawelka has a great flight of five Polish vodkas for like 20 zloty that I would DEFINITELY recommend! Also, there is a Hungarian restaurant that my good friend who is from Krakow recommend to us called Balaton on Grodzka no 37...one of the best meals I have ever eaten. Hands down.

You can't find a much better location. The service was very friendly and the booking process via email was very simple and prompt. The room we had was small but well appointed, the wifi worked great, and small kitchenette was a good bonus. The room 13 we had was up several sets of stairs with no lift access, (but this is the exception) and was pointed out to us prior to arrival so it was no surprise. Location can be a bit noisy at night, but typical for the central location. If you're looking to make a quick trip to Krakow and want to be in the heart of the city walking distance to the main sites, this is the place.

If you're looking for a clean, attractive, and perfectly located place to stay in the beautiful city of Krakow, you won't find better accommodations than the Venetian House Aparthotel. Venetian House is located right on the market square with easy access to the shops and restaurants along Grodzka Street. The staff is extremely friendly, English-speaking, and go out of their way to ensure a pleasant and enjoyable stay for all of their guests. Each room is a self-contained apartment with kitchenette. There is no restaurant or work-out facility like a regular hotel, but there is no shortage of great restaurants on and around the square and you’ll burn plenty of calories exploring the charming cobbled streets that radiate from the old town core. Perhaps the best thing about Venetian House is the price-to-value ratio. You simply won’t find another accommodation of this caliber for this price in arguably the best location in Krakow. We’ll be back!

Room Tip: The market-view studio is an incredible value.

The hotel was very tidy. Room was clean and fresh. Service was friendly - all our questions got answered with a smile! If they hadn´t answer right away, they managed to get one in short time. :)

We felt very welcomed during our stay in Krakow.

Room Tip: The room overlooks a quiet courtyard. That´s good!
