We were in Europe for business, but had added a week in Krakow to the trip for pleasure. This hotel was the perfect choice. It has an exceptional location with wonderful views of the Wawel Castle and Vistula river, and is an easy walk to everything you want to see and do. The rooms are spacious and very well designed for both comfort and ease, including the bathroom, which had excellent lighting and sufficient space for all the toiletries many women carry when traveling! Their own amenities were also very nice. And attention is also given to the needs of business travelers -- which was also important to us even though this stop was just "for pleasure."
The Executive lounge is one of the best we've experienced anywhere, serving a large and diverse variety of hot entrees and delicious hors d'oeuvres and desserts, reflecting local and international fare, made with high quality ingredients and beautifully presented. These included various types of salmon, shrimp, seafood salads, beef carpaccio, various pork specialties, cheeses, fresh fruits, and breads, and desserts that were as scrumptious as they looked! Also, an "open bar" with sparkling, white and red wines, local beer (which according to my husband was quite good). And miscellaneous snacks are available throughout the day and evening (canisters of various nuts and dried fruit, for example) along with coffee/tea, cappuccino or espresso.
Everyone in the hotel was helpful and spoke excellent English. The concierge recommended some wonderful concerts along with restaurants and other attractions that enriched our visit.
We would visit Krakow again because it is a beautiful, warm and fascinating city with an illustrious history, and this will definitely be where we stay. While there are some other quaint, local hotels that are very charming and filled with character and atmosphere, we found the balance of modern, reliable conveniences, clean spacious and very well appointed rooms and bathrooms, combined with its location and proximity to Wawel castle, to win out! For us, the "charm" came from the people and comfort of this hotel.
