“Polish Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2007

We stayed here In October 2006 for 5 nights. We were in a very large appartment at the back of the building, which was very quiet with no noise from the busy square outside.

There are 85 steps up a magnificent sweeping staircase to the rooms on the top floor. Our appartment had a huge bedroom, bathroom with bath & shower, separate toilet, kitchen, and enourmous lounge/
diner. The two main rooms have fantastic beams and traditional furniture & decor, with Digital TV & minibar. The kitchen had a kettle, fridge, hob & oven, & microwave. In a world of corporate hotels it was nice to have a taste of the country we were in. You couldn't be closer to the heart of Kracow, with lots happening in the
square day & night. Good restaurants, shops & when we were there on the Saturday there was a local crafts market. The tourist information
office sold us very cheap tickets to the salt mines & the concentration camps & gave us good maps.

I booked direct by e-mail, no deposit was required and we paid in full when we left. I was a bit concerned after booking that I did have a reservation, but I asked for a confirmation e-mail and everything was fine. Although the staff don't speak much English the owner is fluent and v.helpfull. We had booked 4 nights, then went to Warsaw, when we returned all the hotels were fully booked but The Dom Polonii welcomed us back for one night. There was a concert on downstairs and we could hear it only through open windows & it was all over when we returned from our evening out. I highly recommend this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2006

Warm, high recommendations for this gem, in the very center of the Old City of Krakow! The "Dom Polonii" is a Cultural Center, where the top floor holds three rooms (more like suites or studio apartments!) available for tourist rental. The location is perfect, the rooms are beautiful, the breakfast is delicious, but most important of all, the director of the Dom Polonii is a charming and very helpful Polish gentleman who speaks English and is always willing to help! It's a three-flight walk-up, but worth the extra effort. We were really pleased with our stay, and will certainly return here again.
