“Great Krakow Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

My wife and I stayed at this hotel during a recent 4 night visit to Krakow. The hotel is ideally situated to visit all areas of Krakow as it is only about 15 minutes walking time from all of the main sites. The hotel rooms are all well equipped and are well maintained. All of the staff speak good English and are very friendly.A good buffet breakfast which is included in the price is served each morning and the hotel is located only a few hundred yards from a really excellent restaurant called the Trezo which if you see the Trip Advisor reviews is the No 1 restaurant in Krakow out of 676 restaurants. This hotel is an excellent base for a stay in Krakow and we would recommend it without reservation.

Room Tip: Email the hotel with a request for a room at the rear of the hotel if you are a light sleeper as the...

Our second stay in Krakow and first in the Columbus. Booking made by email, and included an airport pick up / drop off service (at 90pln per trip).

Following previous tips, we requested and got a quiet room at the rear. The room furnishings and bathroom were just to our taste. There is a superb buffet breakfast with lots of good bars and restaurants almost on the doorstep.

Stayed in Columbus hotel between 11-14 June, in a triple room, 2nd floor. The hotel is ideally located for all the city center sightseeing - Kazimiers Jewish quarter is just around the corner, Wavel castle and Rynek are just a couple of stops on a tram or a 15min walk. Also there is a small convenience store just across the road - Kefirek. It's open till late at night and you can get all your basics there if you run out (bread, water, diary, toiletries....) Our hotel room was spacious enough for 3, the third bed was a roll-on bed (slightly smaller size), bathroom was spotless clean and breakfast was plentiful - yogurts, musli, eggs, ham... The only slight remark, the tripple rooms are all orientated towards the street so it can get noisy as trams stop just in front of the hotel, but the positives of this hotel far outweight this slight disadvantage (you can request double rooms at the back if the street noise bothers you). The hospitality of the staff and the cleaners was amazing. I would definitely come back. Thank you.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.

Four of us stayed here in March, only a 10-15 minutes walk to the main square but the tram stops outside the door. The rooms are beautiful and very modern. Also come with a mini bar with very reasonably priced items (though all we drank from it were soft drinks) Can't say enough about the staff, so friendly and helpful. Ideal hotel for a weekend break and would stay here again.
