“Nice hotel except...”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Stayed at this hotel with three friends of mine. The people who worked there are friendly and really helpful.
The hotel itself is clean and well suited for Krakow main square and the city itself.
We had a bed and breakfast basis, and the breakfast was well adequate.
Rooms are simply furnished and spotlessly clean.
The only drawback... Towels.
The towels, although clean, were hard and if you dont have much hair on top as some of us do,
felt like razor blades across the top of your head, ouch!.
All in all though, i would recommend this hotel to people wishing to stay there.
There are other hotels nearer the main square of Krakow which are a lot more expensive than this one. But overall, towels apart, a very nice hotel.

Very nice stay for four nights. Location is 20 min. walking distance from main market square. Clean rooms if a bit small. Hotel across street from a police vehicle station which does make for ocassional siren but apparently restricted at night time.
A memorable, wonderfully presented, breakfast buffet will carry you well into the early evening !
Hotel staff superb, helpful and good English communication.
Krakow truly is spectacular !

We were a large school group of 25 who stayed here for 2 nights - 4 teachers, 21 students. The hostel rooms were comfortable, with a separate bathroom, the breakfast was excellent and a huge variety & the reception staff were helpful & spoke good English. We enjoyed walking to all the sightseeing places, including walking tours, or with transport connections to others such as Schindlers Factory. Krakow is a lovely city, & I would return to this hotel

We chose Hotel Batory for our stay in Krakow because we were driving and needed secure parking. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Krakow is a beautiful city and all the sights are within walking distance from the hotel. The breakfast was by far one of the largest spreads we have seen in all our European travels. There was something for everyone.
Additionally, the restaurant was delicious and you get a discount.

The hotel is relatively close to the main attractions of Krakow historical center. It is quite close to Kazimierz (old Jewish town 10 min walk), a bit farther from the Market Square (20 min walk) and still even farther from the Royal Castle (about 30 min walk). It has a parking lot with limited parking spaces. It is a good hotel for someone who spends most of the time sight seeing as the rooms are very small and have no AC. There is a very good restaurant at the hotel with a lot of wonderful dishes. I highly recommend having breakfast there before hitting the tourist trail as it offers an impressively large selection of high quality dishes (buffet style). The staff is very friendly and kind and speak good English.

Very good location and the availability of free attached parking space are great bonuses! add on that lovely, friendly and helpful staff (I'd like to praise especially Sylwia but all the others were marvelous as well) nicely homey, cozy decorated room and you get an Hotel that worth every penny! One that you'd like it to be your home every time you'll visit Krakow. Breakfast is very good and it even includes Galaretka! a Polish traditional dish my mother used to prepare long time ago. Wonderful memories... Great Hotel
As probably understood from my review we loved the Batory and it was perfect for us, however in order to stay fully objective I have one small remark, room acoustics could be somewhat improved as I could hear the pipe water flaw in the adjacent room when they took a shower, besides that the room was very quite and the window isolation is perfect. This is just a minor remark that shouldn't effect your decision

A very comfortable and welcoming hotel, and very reasonably priced too. The five night bed and breakfast deal on the hotel's own website (paid in advance in zlotys) came out considerably cheaper than the same offer on Expedia.
The only reason not to choose this hotel would be if you didn't feel up to the ten minute walk to the main square. The hotel is situated in in a quiet residential area on the other side of the railway tracks. The ambulance station across the way never disturbed our sleep. I suspect that for night time calls they wait until they are clear of the area before using their sirens.
