Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in Krakow for two nights and chose this hotel based on reviews which we never heard of before. It is just next to a modern mall, right across the river and 20-25 minutes walking distance to the old town. The price is very reasonable compared to what this nice hotel offers with full facilities. The breakfast also offers a variety of choices which gets you stuffed and ready for the rest of the day in Krakow. We will stay again in the same hotel without any question when we visit Krakow.

My daughter (25) and I spent 10 nights at the Hotel Galaxy. Everything we had read on Trip Advisor panned out. The location, across the road from the river ( which regularly had white swans gliding along its waters) was within walking distance of the main town square (20 to 25 mins away). The hotel bus was excellent value for money and provided easy access to most of the main attractions. The restaurant was fabulous,with the menu changing on a regular basis; even my vegetarian daughter found food she could eat. The staff all speak very good English and make you feel very welcome. The spa!! Wow, the spa!!! The pool and spa tub are fantastic and the massages etc are among some of the best we have ever had anywhere in the world. Hotel Galaxy is close to several of the main attractions; if you love walking, you can walk along the river to the Wawel Castle or across to Schindler's Factory. We have stayed in many hotels in many countries and this is a great find.

We travelled in May with an 8 month old baby and couldn't be happier. They provided us with a cot, steriliser, bibs, nappy bin and baby bath. At breakfast they put out a fresh bib, plastic cutlery, bowl and high chair.

Breakfast was great, with a good variety and good quality (and we like our food). A little busy with coach groups, but they kept things topped up extremely well. We were well impressed! Ate in the hotel restaurant one night and the meat filled Polish dumplings were delicious.

Location is next to the river and great for getting to the Schindler factory. The walk is about 20-25 minutes to the main square, but very easy straight up a main road around the corner from the hotel. Once at the factory, we picked up a taxi tour buggy to the Jewish quarter for 20 zloty, which is just under £4.

A well maintained, modern and clean hotel. The pool was lovely and very quiet, the perfect way to unwind after a busy day in Krakow. Right next to a shopping mall, though you wouldn't know it, so other facilities like a Pizza Hut.

Stayed in this hotel for four nights and it didn't disappoint. The location was perfect, within walking distance of all the attractions I wished to visit. The high level of service was clear upon my arrival and continued until the time I left for the airport. Would definitely reccommend it to others travelling to the city.

My wife and I, with another couple, stayed at this hotel for four nights in March and couldn't fault it. The hotel is by the Vistula river and close to The Schindler's Factory Museum.The town centre and other attractions were only a 15min. or so walk away (taxi's were also very cheap). The staff were courteous and helpful, the rooms were spotless and the dining room first class, as was the bar.We had an outstanding meal in the hotel on one evening and excellent breakfasts every morning, with a wide range of foods available. The hotel arranged trips for us to Auschwitz and to the Salt mines, which all went smoothly. I would recommend anyone going to Krakow to use this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river.

The hotel is fairly easy to find. There is plenty of parking space. The reception area is bright and welcoming, and the staff are friendly and speak wonderful English. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The spa is good but not exceptional with a 30 minute massage costing £20. The pool is refreshing but like many not big enough to swim far. There are plenty of water jets and a lovely jacuzzi and sauna. The centre of town is a comfortable 15 minutes walk but a taxi only cost £3. If you are able to, request a room looking over the river on the top floor.

This has been my third stay at the hotel, and I highly recommend it to any prospective traveller. Its location, quality of s service provided by exceptionally friendly staff, and superb breakfast to start a day with are perhaps the biggest assets. Parking is not a problem, and you do not need to use your car to go to the city centre - everything is within walking distance and a stroll down the river, be it in the morning or at dusk is really unforgattable. The Jewish District is round the corner, and so is a big shopping centre. You have everything - while a bit away from noisy crowds in the Main Square, you are still close to Kraków's highlights. A great place for those who go to Kraków on business or who want to let their hair down and admire a truly beautiful town with friends. To describe breakfast, the best adjective is "royal"

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the Vistula are really great.
