I just stayed three nights at this hotel which is in perfect location right in between the Old Town and the Jewish Quarter. The Old Town has many medieval buildings worth visiting, St Mary's Basilica recommended, and a huge number of restaurants and coffee places. In the evening stroll down to the Jewish Quarter for a drink and dinner and... More

Hotel Columbus is a good choice in Krakow if you do not need five star amenities. The room and everything else is what you would expect in Poland in this type of hotel. The location in Kazimierz is good. It is close to the old town but not in the middle of the tourist crowd. There are good restaurants nearby.... More

I have spent 3 nights in Hotel Columbus and I found it a decent hotel in an interesting location, almost near to everything. It is location at the edge of Kazimierz and it is also 10 -15 minutes walk to the old town. The room was clean and nice, and big enough. Since it is near the main road you... More

My wife and I recently had a four day stay, the staff were very helpful and really friendly and the rooms were immaculate. We requested a balcony and we were not disappointed. The continental breakfast was very good, the hotel organised a couple of excursions and guide us to an excellent restaurant. The hotel is next to the Jewish quarter... More

Stayed at this hotel for several days while touring the southern part of Poland. It was a wonderful place! Very close to the Kazimierz district and within walking distance of many of the major attractions in Krakow. Very, very comfortable and had a really nice breakfast buffet. Would definitely choose it again if in the area.

It was difficult not to give this hotel 5 stars but there are no tea making facilities in the rooms and it is on quite a noisy road if you sleep in the front rooms. However, the rooms are clean and spacious with aircon and maid service and bottled water provided daily. The breakfasts are nothing short of stunning. Mostly... More

I had a lovely break in feb 2016. The hotel was fairly basic but very accommodating. It is located in the quieter Jewish area with bars and restaurants nearby. The room was always cleaned nicely and the staff were polite and courteous. The breakfast was a nice selection and very laid back with friendly staff. We did the auschwich tour... More

Situated on a busy street in the old Jewish area, is only a 20 minute stroll to most areas of interest. Several good restaurants only a few meters away in a quiet square beside the old synagogue Friendly English speaking staff with great tips for your stay in this charming city
