Just very pretty little stall sinside and a beautiful building on the outside. Looks beautiful in the evening!

“Lovely building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The building itself is very impressive but the stalls inside are selling pretty much the same things which you can buy cheaper off the square.
Still nice to have a wander through though.

“Overrated tourist souvenir shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I visited Krakow with my wife and adult children. A great city well worth a few days but Cloth Hall was disappointing. Just an assortment of gift stalls. Prices reasonable though!

“Stunning building but that's all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is a stunning looking build with a beautiful interior, there are wooden booths inside traders selling their ware. Only problem, they are all selling the same things, so not that great in that respect. Don't see the point of 30 booths all selling near enough the same as next person so that let this place down big time, but a very nice building.

“Shopper's delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Everything Polish in one beautiful setting. Be sure to visit additional little shops surrounding the outside of the Cloth Hall. I understand there is also a museum of Polish art upstairs but we did not visit.
