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.
