Krakow is a charming city with a vibrant and sad history. Hotel Columbus is right where you want to be in order to explore it fully on your own. You can walk to the main square, the Jewish quarter and even the Schindler factory. The staff is helpful and the rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast was fabulous. No complaints... More

Just stayed for 3 nights at the Columbus. We found all the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, very clean and quite spacious, luckily we had a room at the back so didn't hear the noise from the trams going by. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. When we had an early pickup for... More

Hotel is situated near the Jewish district in Krakow with many good restaurants and shops nearby. The hotel staff is excellent. Since we had to depart for the airport before breakfast they prepared one for us that was way more than adequate. The rooms are of good size with individual temperature control. The rooms are very clean and the bed... More

The hotel is built and retains "70's" style, but with excellent quality. The rooms are of good size, and bathroom had shower cubicle. The cleanliness and upkeep of standards is to be admired and puts most other group hotels I have stayed in, to shame. The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly, but the location is super for the tourist wanting... More

Stayed here for three nights in early September. The staff were exceptional ( especially Carolina) and could'nt do enough to make our stay a happy one. The facilities are of a good standard and the hotel is ideally placed adjacent to the Jewish quarter which was a really interesting area and is also fifteen minutes stroll to the main square....

Really friendly staff hotel really clean. plenty of choice for breakfast. Only slight drawback was we were at the front of hotel and on a busy road. Trams stopped at eleven but started again before five. Price you pay for being central. Maybe back of hotel next time.
