This was our fourth visit to Krakow but first at this hotel, which was far and away better than other places we have stayed. It's always hard to know why some travelers are dissatisfied when others like us are not, but we've found that our reception mostly depends on our own approach. At this hotel, the front desk staff was... More

This is a small, well maintained hotel in a great location in the heart of the Jewish quarter of Krakow. Our room was nice, clean and well appointed. So did I rate this as average? The rude staff. Our greeting when we arrived was "Check your room immediately and report any damage immediately. You will be charged for any damage... More

This is a basic but charming hotel in the Old Jewish Quarter. Our room was small with a sloping ceiling, but very comfortable (we had to be careful not to bang our heads). The staff was very helpful and spoke a lot better English than our Polish! The breakfast was very good. We loved the location. In addition to the... More

we spent 3 nights in the cozy small hotel Ester right across the square from the old synagogue. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the breakfast offered a real good choice and the room was clean and comfortable, although not very big. There was regular live music at the restaurant and on the Szeroka street, really good Klezmer sounds.... More
