Good morning, Through the portal, I would like to say "Thank you" the owners of the Globtroter Guest House in Krakow for a very nice time under their roof. The room was perfectly prepared according to previous additional needs. Staff during my stay showed full professionalism. I recommend Globtroter to all people who want to spend time in Krakow in a safe place with lots of attractions nearby. Greetings, Piotr M

Very helpful staff, any problems just ask. This quite location is excellent for the centre of Krakow which is on the doorstep. The TV is very limited for English channels and the internet can depend on your position in the room, but I was very pleased with the deal i got in this quiet coronavirus period.

It can be a little tricky to find the address first time, my tip is to reach it from the street swietego tomasza. The entry is basically on the right side of the street as it reaches the square plac szczepanski. I walked from the main train station (glowny), and it takes 10-15mins. I had my own room in the front building, it was a private dorm, so was large and spacious. As a solo traveller I didn't need this size room but didn't mind. The room had thick walls and a high ceiling,strong old furniture, and an en-suite washroom. Telly and coffee making facilities were present although I never used them. Pillow was too feeble. The room was more quiet than expected, although I only stayed on 3 x weekday nights. The inner courtyard of the guesthouse presents a nice setting as you'll see in the pictures, although there is practically no communal areas there. Not sure if this is due to covid19. The guest rooms along the floors which surround the yard have a nice vantage. As I was housed in the front building, I wondered whether it'd be a bonus to have a room within the courtyard. Location is a strong point. In the immediate vicinity there's a conveience store 2 doors down open til 11pm and plenty of bars and restaurants (however the noise from them didn't seem to penetrate into the guesthouse during my stay). I recommend Polskie Smaki, a traditional polish restaurant closeby. They serve delcious hearty dishes at good prices. Also there's a taxi rank along the street, and the square has benches for relaxing. The square has an exhibition but it's completelty in Polish. Oh, and the main square of Krakow is exceptionally close, only a 3mins walk. Overall it was excellent value and a great location and facilities. Staff were nice and helpful. Would stay again when returning to krakow.

I stayed in the globtroter guest house for 3 nights , when I went to find it took a bit of searching as only a small sign on the wall , once get through first door down a passage into a secret garden then to reception , staff were great good English and very helpful . The rooms are big enough but the furniture reminded me of the 1970s maybe it’s just a theme guest house the bed wasn’t the best and the pillow was non existent had to ask for a second one and use the blanket to make a pillow . The room was quiet considering how close it was to the street but the walls were paper thin could hear people talking clearly in next room and walking about above . The bathroom was ok but never really got hot water in shower just warm . But for the price per night and location 2 mins walk to main square very good location so you have to take the rough with the smooth . Would probably stay again if wanted central base and good price . I give it a 4 purely for location !

If you're from north America, forget all you know about hotels. This is similar to staying in someone's flat. It's conveniently located with all the shops and restaurants. That being said the smell of BBQ may leak into your room. Note: as of August 2019, this hotel does not provide soap and shampoo or amenities. I bought body wash at the mall.
