It's hard to imagine a better spot to be for exploring Krakow's wonderful Old Town. Globtroter is on your own quiet square just 2 minutes from the bustling main square, where the activity and people-watching is always interesting. Szczepanska Square has kids playing in the fountain, the Charlotte cafe across for coffee, breads and homemade jams in the morning, and I'd recommend the Polski Smaki restaurant just left out the Globtroter's door on sw. Tomasza. Also just steps away from the nice Planty park that circles the Old Town.
If you want to pay more for a useless fancy lobby, this isn't your kind of place. I found the Globtroter to be just right - a clean, comfortable room with congenial and helpful advice from the front desk and very reasonable rates. Email arrangements were easy and prompt replies, with helpful links and good maps. It was an easy walk from the Krakow train station or a taxi would get you there in 5 minutes. The Wifi was fast and reliable.
As others have mentioned, the bar that shares the entry hallway is really no problem. My room was right across from the club, I stayed Friday and Saturday nights and heard nothing. Better than being on the main square and hearing the trumpet call every hour of the day and night (could still hear it faintly from here).
All in all, the Globtroter does a nice job of providing what a traveler needs for great 'home base' to explore and get to know the real Krakow, rather than being insulated from it.
