“Great hotel and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We stayed at the Wawel Hotel for 4 nights in two rooms, a twin and a double room. The rooms were of high standard and overlooked a courtyard. This hotel is in a great location just a couple of minutes walk to the beautiful Old Town Square. The breakfast which was included was very good and served till around 11am, food was being replenished all the time. The hotel booked a taxi to pick us up at the airport and return us, also we booked our trips with the hotel. All in all an excellent place to stay and would recommend to anyone.

This hotel was booked for me via Escape2Poland. It's in the old part of the city, making for great access to all the places you want to go to as a tourist. Friendly staff that speak good English. Pretty rooms. Bathroom a little small, but high quality fittings that work well.

The breakfast is served right up to 11am. Standard continental breakfast.

The hotel was much better than I was expecting and is great for anyone where they just need a hotel to sleep in but want a little comfort too.

A "boutique hotel " with excellent location, service and ambiance
A nice, quiet "getaway" outdoor private courtyard where you can have a coffee or a snack.
Front desk people are very helpful and proactive No prodding needed.
Free wifi which was of reasonable quality. Breakfast was included and of very good quality.
A beautiful experience in a beautiful city!

Much because of the location, which is central in the Old Town - but still quiet. The standard of our room vas excellent; clean, updated and spacious - like the rest of the whole building. Good breakfast - you may even ask for your own omelet - prepared just for you. But what impressed us even more was the friendly and flexible staff; our stay, originally three days, had to be postponed one day becaus of delaied flight from Norway. We wanted to add another day, then, and wessage was sent to the reception late in the evening we should hava arrived. Answer from reception: No problem - we add another day to your order - and charge nothing for the showoff the first night! And upon leaving early Sunday morning, due to travel by train to Berlin at 7, we were offered breakfastbaskets to go, which fed us for most of the whole journey, which lasted close to 10 hours. Amazing!

Gorgeous hotel, booked a double room for two nights stay as was attending a wedding. Location is brilliant and near Wawel Castle which is beautiful lovely parks and well kept. the bedroom is massive bathroom gorgeous air con which stays on even when you take the key to leave the room.

The onle thing which i didnt like but only minor was we asked for a double bed which was two single bed pushed together now i didnt really mind that prop the norm but the piece of wood in the middle was pain but not really a prob.

you have unlimited access to the net which is located on the 2nd floor a water tank with freezing water Nice when you come back in from walking around the streets. the breakfast is a buffet but also says that if you need or want anything to just ask..

room was cleaned everyday and fresh towels given and the plus side there was a fridge in the room so could go out and buy bottles of water for the room..

all in all an very enjoyable stay and would recommend it to anyone.. would go back there tomorrow if i could.
