Stayed in this hotel in October 2016. It is very old fashioned and desperately in need of renovation. It is clean but very dated and drab. The bed linen was clean but old. The staff are excellent and the breakfast very good with a wide selection to eat. The bar is small for the size of the hotel. It is... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights just a couple of weeks ago. We had such a great time! We would even stay there again if we go back. The staff could not be nicer and the breakfast spread is very generous. The hotel is very old but it is charming. They even have complimentary boxed lunches for... More

This hotel is a wonderful place to stay in every way. It's location is perfect for exploring the old town and very close to tram and bus stops for venturing to other historical sites. The staircase is amazing and very grand. Breakfast has every choice imaginable with hot breakfast cooked to order, wonderful, as was dinner. The rooms vary, but... More

I stayed here four nights last week. very easy to access from airport to stationthen a short walk. Less than 5 minutes from main square. A traditional hotel which is quaintly comfortable. Good room and shower with excellent night's sleep. Amazing breakfast with great selection of hot and cold dishes. Very happy to recommend.

We had a brilliant stay here, it's a fantastic hotel. This is the perfect base for exploring Krakow. It's only a few minutes walk from the main square and very easy to find from the train station. I thoroughly recommend this hotel, will be back!

We stayed here with friends and were really impressed with this hotel. All our rooms were very spacious and quirky with lots of mahogany and chandeliers and nice comfy armchairs. The beds were big and comfy and great for a good nights sleep. Even the bathroom had a chandelier and gold plated fittings. The only downside for us was that... More

We arrived late in the evening and received a warm welcome from the doorman and reception. The check in was very efficient and we were shown to our room after walking up the fabulous staircase. It was clean and well equipped with tea/coffee, slippers, robe and toiletries. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice including fresh fruit, meats, cheeses,... More

We stayed in this lovely hotel for two nights. It is located on the edge of the old town, close to the planti, and Barbican Gate. It is in a quiet road and despite being close to the main square there was no problem with noise. The hotel was obviously very grand in the past, and still boasts a wonderful... More

French hotel is located in historic centre of Krakow, opposite The Princes Czartoryski Museum, few meters from the old city walls and the Barbakan. Within easy reach there are many galleries, jewelry stores and during tourist season - also a bazaar with works of art, presented by the old defensive wall. Whole French Hotel is filled with old elegance what is already evident upon entering the lobby and impressive staircase with columns. It is the oldest building in Krakow erected immediately as a hotel - was opened in 1912. Interior is influenced by the popular at that time an art deco style. The rooms and suites are decorated with wallpapers, pictures, and graphics showing former Krakow, as well as solid, stylized furniture. The bathrooms are comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean. Some suites may be combined, by which the hotel is recognised among traveling families. Listening to a clock beating in the lobby or sipping tea in a cafe, you can travel in imagination hundred years to the past. The building is famous for almost a hundred years of its restaurant serving delicious Polish cuisine. ... more   less
