“Break in Kazimierz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

There are the few things making this hotel special:
*location - so close to all attractions of Kazimierz. Next to Vistula River. Just few steps from booming of night life Jewish Quarter and Galeria Kazimierz Shopping Centre
*product - contemporary room design. All areas very clean
*overall wide range of facilities incl. Wellness Centre
*cuisine - great selection on breakfast incl. all Polish specialities. Fresh orange juice. A lot of healthy options.
Lunch - pierogi...This dish was to die for!
*full of life staff!

Stayed here for three nights and the staff were helpful, the parking was easy, the breakfast was good and the swimming pool facilities were excellent. I have been to many five star hotels which are not as good as this hotel.
The only negatives are that the room TV didn't have any English channels (not the end of the world) and the reception desk never had any change!
I would recommend checking out the swimming pool as we were disappointed we had not discovered it earlier in our stay!

Stayed here for 2 nights as apart of a european tour. We loved this hotel. Beautiful modern decor exceptionally clean and very comfortable beds. We were here on a b&b basis and the breakfast was very good with an excellent choice of food.
We ate in the Andromeda restaurant in the evening and the food and service were very very good and reasonably priced too. This was our favourite hotel of the tour.

New and nice hotel close to everything. Galeria Kazimierz - one of the biggest shopping malls in Krakow is just 100 meters away. Old judish Kazimierz with lot of good restaurants is a 10 min walking distance. stary Rynek with Sukiennice and Kosciol Mariacki is a 15-20 min walking distance!

The hotel is right by the river so 15 minutes walk from the centre and really well placed to catch the cable car or jump in taxi. There is also a very inexpensive bus that starts is loop outside. It does have a bit of an Eastern block feel about it and doesn't have the rustic charm that come of the other hotels hold but it's good value for money.

The staff are great & very obliging. The rooms are spotless and the air conditioning is good. I was in an exec room on the 5th floor so I had a good view of the river and bridges.

Breakfast is really great. In fact I have stayed in 5 star American resorts that didn't offer as comprehensive choice as the Galaxy. You can even juice your own red grapefruits. It's the simple things that impressed me here. Ice and sparkling water. Fantastic fresh fruit. Hot, cooked everything if you wanted it. Cheese from all over Europe. Loads of different types of bread...the list goes on. Truly fab and I don't eat breakfast.

Dinner was OK. It wasn't exactly gourmet but it was palatable and fresh and the service was excellent. There are typical Polish dishes on the menu in the main and all of room service and bar snacks are very Polish but when in Rome......

Room Tip: Go for the 5th floor or above at a premium. I had room 518 right on the corner over the river.

We had parking without any problem(surcharge).
we were satisfied and we will definitely recommend this hotel.

Just returned from this trip. Excellent Hotel. A little further from the Old quarters than we imagined ( early arrival meant we had to kill time till room ready so went for walk), but once we booked the hop on hop off bus next day for remaining 2 days stopped right outside hotel so no problem. Clean, comfortable and no noise the nights we stayed. Staff very helpful. Did not eat here apart from breakfast, no problems except did not realise (until leaving) could have asked for fried eggs!Would certainly return.
