“The perfect Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

From the very first moment my wife and 2 friends arrived we were treated like royalty, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, from the porter taking our luggage up to our room, to the reception staff ensuring we were advised of what the hotel provided and details of where to go and what to see in Krakow.

Our room on the second floor was fabulous, very spacious and well appointed, the bathroom was the best in any hotel I've every stayed in, the storage was more than adequate and the safe was a real bonus (we've normally had to pay to use one).

the little touches were brilliant and really made the stay special, from the chocolates on the pillow, to the staff coming in the evening to turn the bed down and make sure the air conditioning was turned on (very necessary as it was very hot during our stay).

The breakfast was just as we been told it would be, very well presented and absolutely delicious (and plenty of it), from the hot breakfast cooked to order right through to the buffet style cold options and pastries, there was so much we didn't need to eat lunch!

The hotel is also really well located close to the City Centre, the train station and the tram system an a large taxi stand, just perfect.

reception staff also booked our airport transfer direct from the hotel and this was also first class.

All in all, I cannot speak highly enough our stay, we will come back again an have recommended the hotel to all our friends.

Your really do get what you pay for at Hotel Grodek, worth every penny. Thank you for a fabulous stay.

Check out was also really smooth an easy (it's just a shame we had to go!!).

Our stay was relaxing, quiet and very close to old town. Great service, friendly staff. My one suggestion: replace the beds.
We found them very low to the floor making it extremely difficult to fold clothes to repack.

We had a lovely stay here at Hotel Grodek.
The location is perfect, just a little off the main roads, so it's nice and quiet. But it's also almost dead center of the old town, so you have walking distance to everything in this district.
We didn't try the local restaurant at the hotel, there were so many other first class restaurants just a few streets away.
I would absolutely recommend this hotel to other couples traveling in Krakow.
If I were to mention one negative element, it was the number of "homeless" people staying in the Planty just outside. It was a bit creepy, but there were often security personel around outside.

Room Tip: We had a room facing in the backalley, it was nice and quiet.

Krackow was fabulous. Hotel Grodek, staff brilliant, room charming & spotless, breakfast had everything you could ever want.
Each day the reception staff printed out information for my travel companion and I. We visited Salt Mines, Schindlers Factory, Auchwitz and all the attractions in Krakow.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough, in a quiet cul-de-sac just off the Planty, 4 mins walk from market square.

Hotel is only about 2 blocks away from the Market Square but is on a cul-de-sac street so it is quiet without any people or vehicle noise. However, a major road, with trams, is only across the small garden ("planty") so depending on the location of the room, sounds may come through.

Breakfast has many choices and of very high quality. Rooms are large and bright.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the terrace floor.

We stayed here recently and enjoyed it but the experience was greatly lessened by the room which was really only suitable as a single. With only one small case each we had difficulty moving about. Pity, as the hotel is quaint, well located, nice staff, and a reasonable breakfast.
We had a better experience elsewhere in Krakow

Room Tip: Double standard may be too small

I stayed at the Hotel Grodek in June 2013 for 7 nights as part of a tour group in a nicely decorated and comfortable room. Although I usually walked to my room on the third floor, there was an elevator available. There were two bottles of water included with the room (one "with gas" and one without). The bathroom was bright and clean. The room temperature was not always consistent, but for the most part it was comfortably cool. We had a breakfast buffet every morning which included everything from omelets cooked to order to breads, cheeses, meats and fruit. The staff was friendly, courteous and attentive, both in the restaurant and at the front desk. One of the best features of the hotel is that it is a short walk from Krakow's main Market Square and a bit longer walk from several notable churches and the Wawel Castle.
