Angel House 2 Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #16 of 132 Krakow B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 22, 2010

Recently returned from a seven night stay.

Opened only in summer 2010 by the owners of the well reviewed and popular Angel House 1 on Blich St, Krakow, this "sister" property Angel House 2 on Sebastiana St Krakow is very conveniently located for the Old Town, Wawel Hill and the Kazimierz/Jewish district, all of which can be reached on foot in approximately 5 or 6 minutes, the main reason we really liked this location. Being in a side street just outside these areas, there are no noisy bars or clubs within or close to the building that we were aware of, and there are no trams running along Sebastiana St although the stops are nearby. The location is therefore convenient but quieter than you might expect for a central location. We really could not fault the location.

The B and B apartment is located on the 2nd floor (3rd in the USA) with no lift so might not suit everyone. As with Angel House 1, the apartment building itself is somewhat dilapidated looking, as is the communal entrance and staircase. Opening the door at apartment 5 you step into a different world. Totally renovated, beautifully decorated and furnished throughout (Ikea style) there are seven bedrooms and a communal kitchen/dining area where breakfast is served. All rooms have satelite tv. There is also free WiFi access. A nice touch is that tea and coffee are available 24/7, you simply help yourself. Airport transfers and excursions can be arranged.

The property is kept very clean and tidy by staff who were friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. Check in and check out were very easy for us because of our arrival and departure times.

Breakfast consisted of tea, coffee, orange juice, a choice of 2 cereals, yogurt, cold meats and cheeses, jams, and either breads or rolls freshly bought. There is also a toaster. It did not really vary throughout our stay.

It was not explained to us on arrival that staff do not service the rooms daily. As we were there 7 nights, our bedlinen and towels were changed after 4 nights but this was the only time the room was serviced that we noticed. Only shower gel and soap were provided and I did not see a hairdrier. Our bed was 2 singles pushed together with the sheets the correct size for the bed but the duvet was 2 single duvets.

Although attractive and probably practical, the types of floorcoverings used throughout the rooms and the communal hallway and kitchen/diner mean that there is little internal noise insulation and even small sounds could be heard, especially in rooms leading off the kitchen/dining area.

During some of our stay only 3 or 4 rooms were occupied at a time and for other nights all seven rooms were occupied. When the property was operating at full or near full capacity, if everyone waned to eat around the same time in the morning, breakfast could be a little busy with five smallish tables for seven rooms. Also, because the showers are not electric, if several people showered around the same time in the morning, the hot water ran out leaving only cold/lukewarm water until more was heated. When the property was operating at less than full capacity these issues did not arise.

There are no resident staff. The office is across the hall and manned from approx 0800 to 2000 or so, and someone comes in to set up breakfast, attend to whichever rooms are to be serviced for new arrivals, and for general cleaning of the communal area. Also to meet new arrivals checking in. You are given 4 keys to access the various parts of the building and your room.

Overall there were some things we really liked about our stay, but equally there were some things we were less happy with. Maybe we are more difficult to please. Feel we could recommendto others but only if they are aware of some of the downsides to staying here.
