This place is fantastic value for money, this was my third visit and I plan to return! It is situated in a quiet courtyard just minutes from the main square and is full of old world charm. Although the Globtroter does not serve food this is not a problem as there is an abundance of fabulous restaurants on it's doorstep....

We arrived at the airport and we were collected by a driver laid on by the guesthouse as arranged who was extremely friendly and helpful. On arrival it was very straight forward which was good as we had 2 young kids that were extremely tired having arrived in after midnight. The gentleman behind the desk was very helpful and friendly....

Dear Suzy, Thank you for your lovely opinion on our Guest House and the staff. It is really motivating for us when we read such a positive feedback. I have redirected it to our reception desk so that everyone could read. Thank you once again and hope to see you again one day! Marek Manager

Positives: central location. Two minute walk to the market square. Large rooms. Complaints: it was an utter palaver to get checked in. It looks run down. There was someone (presumably homeless sleeping in the foyer). Instructions on where the rooms were was so poor - it was chaos. The receptionist was a bit rude as she was flustered following mistakes...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your opinion and comments. We always treat them seriously. I am sorry for all the convenience but please let me first add here a very important information which is I think crucial for other readers to understand the situation during the check in.

Second time at the Globtroter, pleased to see it is still the same comfortable, warm, safe ad friendly guesthouse as it was before. Unfortunately this time though, we were placed in the rooms at the front building which is over 'The Square' nightclub. Friday night wasn't too bad for noise but Saturday was ridiculous - the bass from the music...

Clean, spacious, staff generally excellent, comfortable, and great location (2 blocks off main square). Facility has character - do not read "shabby." For Americans, ice system IS funky!! Quiet, good sleep.

The staff at this great location is friendly and helpful. The garden and terrace are beautiful. You have the feel of an old world guest house and the convenience to all of Old Town. I have stayed here several times and look forward to my return.

Yes, there are lots of very fine hotels in Krakow that are far more posh and expensive. But for the money, it's unlikely you will find better value than this. The Globtroter is centrally located, and the staff is welcoming and friendly (and speak very good English if that is a concern). My single room was basic, but spotless, quiet...

Don't be misled by the photograph of the garden courtyard, which looks charming, but is now wildly overgrown. Globtroter is in a very old building and is very worn. The floor of my room had so much ground-in dirt in the wood that I wished I hadn't gone so low-end. As other reviews have noted, there is zero soundproofing --...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your opinion, every review is really important to us. Thank you for your positive and also for these 'less positive' ones, both are very valuable to us.
