5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

What a weekend great hotel reception staff more than helpful as we arrived late because of terrible snow , a welcome drink I the bar free of charge the suite (we had booked a room) was great views out of both side of the bedroom great.The rooms were a bit old but we felt that that added to the stay,breakfast was very varied and a gods selection of food.We will be back Helen

Room Tip: If you want modern ask for the new part of the Hotel if not just enjoy past splendour

We stayed here for one night, the hotel has odor, unpleasant smell. Our room was facing the street which is very noisy due to trams and other transportation. Couldn't sleep because of the noise even with closed window. The room had no A/C which is a minuse having in mind we had to close the window because of the noise. Breakfast is average, location is perfect.
It seems the hotel has a good restaurant because it was always full of locals.

Fantastic location: Wawel castle is just in front of the main gate, 5min on foot to the main square, also on a walking distance to Jewish Quarter where you can find charming places to eat, 20 minutes is walking distance of the main train station through park and if you need there is a tram stop next to the entrance. Large room with single beds with dimensions for double, free WiFi, spacious clean bathroom, very kind and helpful staff and on the reception you can find free guide and map from the series “In your pocket” and all information you need about Krakow and the region and also if you want you can book on the reception your day trip to salt mine Wieliczka or Auschwitz… the breakfast starts very early if you don’t want to lose even a moment of your day, there are good variety of different tasty things and the breakfast room actually is a restaurant of the hotel with nice and very different interior than other conventional hotels. This hotel was a great choice, definitely!

Excellent location half way between old town square and the jewish quarter. Good size rooms (provided you ask). Modern bathroom. Breakfasts good and hotel restaurant excellent - especially the beetroot soup!

Room Tip: Make sure you reserve a large room in the 'modern' section of the Hotel. Ours was 213

The hotel is located within walking distance from the Main Market Square and the Jewish Quarter.
Good spacious and clean room.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel has private parking in the courtyard behind the gates. The buffet breakfast was good and it helped her a visit the salt mines.

The location really was perfect--right next to the castle, a ten minute walk to the central square, and ten minutes in the other direction to the Jewish Quarter. Definitely ask to be on the park side. Even the hotel staff told us that it was new and much bigger and nicer. The room itself was spacious, clean, and quiet. Really great value for the money. Also attached to one of the most popular restaurants in the city--always crowded, and fairly good! Breakfast buffet had a good variety and was always nice. I would stay there again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the park side.
