“Trevor's & Lee's review.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

This is in such a good position to enjoy the Town & move off to visit some of the tourist spots.The staff are very helpful & friendly nothing was too much trouble,even came to the cashpoint to make sure we could understand how to operate it. (very easy really but the thought of losing your card to some snatching machine can be a bit daunting). The room was well furnished nicely decorated & very clean, towels & bed linen changed every day. Flowers everywhere & although during our stay it was very hot this place remained cool. Also the staff were very helpful in arranging & booking the trips out to visit various tourist hotspots & advice on where to find everything. I would come again.

Room Tip: Lower numbers are best, you don't have to climb the stairs so far.

We had room 5 and it was small, but we knew that ahead of time. Since we are hardly ever in our room except at night, it didn't matter. It was wonderful to be in such an old building with character. Location is excellent but be prepared to hear the bugle every hour. The girls working here are very pleasant and helpful. This is a good choice of a place to stay in krakow.

I stayed at Tango House on Friday 12 July til Sunday 14 July 2013. First night i stayed in room 5 which I found very charming. The original doors and authentic features (exposed original walls) of the room make the room unique. I read a few reviews particularly about this room and I can't believe that some people were complaining about it. Yes, the room might be too small for two people but then it only cost 40 Euros. I stayed there on my own but I will definately stay there again with my husband next time we are in Krakow.
The second night i stayed in room 7 (unfortunately my little room 5 was already booked for the second night). This room was confortable and spacious with a little kitchen and place to relax.
The staff was absolutely lovely. Sabina was very attentive and helpful.
Tango House is worth visiting. You will love the original staircase and cosy cafe. I strongly recommend.

The hotel seems a little dodgy when you walk in but the rooms are clean, self contained and you have the option of tango music playing in the background using a switch on the wall!

Staff were friendly and helpful however are only available between 8am and 10pm otherwise you need an out of hours phone number.

We stayed here for three nights. First impression when we walked in was probably a little bit different to when we got to our room. The entrance way off the street looks a bit dingy.

We arrived early so couldn't check in straight away but the girl there was happy for us to leave our bags. When we did check in the rooms were good with your own toilet and kitchenette. There were no lifts and we were up two levels but luckily they had taken up our bags by the time we came back to check in. Stairs are quite narrow and dark though so it may present a problem for someone who has mobility issues.

Breakfast was quite simple...some cereal, yoghurt and bread rolls with ham, cheese, tomato. Dining room is extremely small but fine just for eating breakfast.

Service was ok. Only one girl is on at any one time and they lock up at 10pm so no one is on site.

Location was probably the best bit with the hotel being located very central to the main square. A pleasant stay overall.

Within easy walking distance of the main train station and in the Old Town, this B&B features softly piped tango music and posters of tango performances. Our double room (#1) was a little cramped, but the bed was comfortable. Old frescoes on the stairwell walls and the brightly decorated underside of the staircase added to the mood of this old building. Breakfast was a lovely assortment of cheeses, vegetables, yogurts, hams, and fresh breads. Our narrow room faced the street, and we heard the hourly bugler. But we also heard the drunks much of the night.

A superb location just a few steps from the Big Square in old Krakow. Friendly staff who served you and helped out with anything needed; from tours to aspirin...! Nice and clean with a great, cool atmosphere. Breakfast with all you can ask for at a B&B. Most recommended. Patrik with a party of five persons from Sweden, dbl room at no 6, triple at no 3.
