Hotel Eden is perfectly situated right in the heart of Krakow's old Jewish quarter - Kazimierz. We are close to many historical sights such as The Remuh synagogue, Old Synagogue, Wawel Castle, Schindler's factory and the former Jewish ghetto in Podgorze. The medieval Main Market Square with famous St Mary's Church and Cloth Hall is an easy 10 minute walk away.

For a modest fee you can use our unique Salt Grotto as well as the more traditional forms of relaxation: sauna and massage.
What makes us special:
Hotel Eden is the only hotel in Poland with mezuzah (a piece of parchment inscribed with specified Hebrew verses from the Torah)
Hotel Eden is the only Jewish hotel in Poland with a mikvah (ritual Jewish bath).In its pre-renovation state Hotel Eden can be seen in the film "Schindler's List", as some of the film's scenes were shot on Ciemna Street and inside the future hotel.
There are unique paintings and posters on the walls from various period of times.
I think I forgot to write a review from Hotel Eden last June (2019). So here it comes. We love this hotel! Nice people, nice rooms, historic building, good breakfast served in a very special breakfast room in the very basement of the house. We simply loved it. The hotel is situated in the jewish quarter, close to a lot of beautiful cynagoges, the famous place where important parts of the movie «Schindlers List» was shot and where you can find a lot of nice restaurants and bars. Everything is whitin walking distance. Service is great and rooms are clean. We had a nice room at 1st floor with a small balcony towards the backyard. Peace and quiet. For your next trip to Krakow this hotel is highly recommended by us.
I spent three nights last year and I really enjoyed this place. Very qualified staff and special thank you to Monica for her support. I had a very comfortable room with a balcony, very clean and great location. I highly recommend it.
Having decided on our annual short break to Europe with our friends we chose Krakow and the Eden hotel. The whole experience went fine, flights out, airport transfers and check in at the hotel. Then the corona virus issue hit and turned the whole experience upside down. On our check-in we were informed that all the attractions, Auschwitz Birkenau, Salt mines and all the museums had closed so our tour had been cancelled. So we decided to enjoy the city anyway. The rooms were big and the beds extremely comfortable and the duvets really warm. When we went for breakfast we found the cellar dining area very quirky and very different to the hotels main building. There is plenty of variety within the breakfast but remember that it is predominantly of a continental style, there is in addition some hot food items and the staff will freshly prepare a variety of omelettes to order which we made use of and they were very tasty. The hotel is within the Jewish quarter and if you want to go out and experience different eating and drinking experiences then you are ideally situated for just that. There is an open air food court directly opposite the hotel which are fairly popular in the area. There a number of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance of the hotel as are access to city wide tours in large golf buggy type vehicles. If you are up for walking and exploring on your home, the place feels safe, very little issue with beggars or people pestering for tours etc, the guides with golf buggy tours will ask if you are interested but a quick no thanks is quite sufficient. We managed to locate both Irish bars, one which is only a couple of streets away from the hotel and the other is in the old town and can be reached by a steady walk into the main square and the old town. The reception staff will book taxis as we required them on a couple of occasions and they were promptly ordered for us. Be aware of taxis as in the main they aren’t expensive but we did get one from the Irish bar in old town back to the hotel and he ripped us off compared to all the others we had used. The staff were in a very difficult situation when the corona virus situation started to develop at a pace whilst we were there and we had to cut short our break by a day and sort out getting back to the airport to sort out flights home. The reception staff assisted us in trying to contact the English consulate in Krakow who we.re of little use to anyone caught up in the mayhem. Once the world returns to normal, we will return to Krakow to continue exploring the wonderful city and we shall be using Eden hotel as our base next time. The hotel is a great base to explore the city.…
We had a wonderful time in Krakow thanks to the staff in Hotel Eden. Clean, comfortable room and great breakfasts. The location in the Jewish quarter is excellent for food and sightseeing. As we were travelling into the city I thought it looked much the same as any city, until we arrived into the old town. I loved the old cobbled streets. We booked our flight and Hotel Eden last summer at a great price. I recommend comfortable shoes for walking. It was warmer than Northern Ireland the week we visited and it only rained one day:). We hope to return in the summer as recommended by the staff at Krakow airport. I really noticed the green, green grass of home when we came home.
We stayed here for new year and so glad we did and picked this hotel, great deal for 2 people for 4 nights and it being new year! The staff were great, wanted lunch made as we was going out for the day to do a tour and they accommodated that for us an had it ready for when we left. Breakfast was cooked fresh if you wanted eggs etc, the location for this note, is brilliant close to restaurants and about 10 minutes walk from main market square. We will definitely be coming back to this park of Krakow as was stunning.
