A 3 story hotel which was converted from a large house. Room numbers are a little hard to figure out initially. The small elevator goes to each floor where the rooms are numbered a little differently. 201, 202, 203 etc are on the level with the elevator on the 2nd floor. 210, 211, 212 etc are up a small flight of stairs from the elevator level, 220,221,222 etc are up one more small flight of stairs. This hotel is not for those who cannot use stairs. Even if you are on the ground floor, the restaurant is downstairs, below where the elevator lets you off.
Beyond the stairs, this hotel had lovely rooms. Mine had two bedrooms with a door between them. One with two singles and the other with one single bed. Nice bathroom and views of the Jewish quarter. The noise from the surrounding restaurants and pubs can be loud if you are in the front of the hotel. The back overlooks an old Jewish cemetary so it's much quieter.
It's difficult to drive to this hotel due to the narrow cobblestone streets and there is no parking but the old town square is meters away.
Literally dozens of great restaurants and outdoor cafe's surround the hotel with fantastic food choices. The central square with hundreds of shops and entertainment choices can be reached with a 15 minute walk as can the castle and Schindlers factory. Much of the movie Shcindlers List was filmed in the area.
Breakfast was incredible each day with plenty of choices. WiFi was rather slow but available throughout the hotel. There is an internet station in the lobby coffee room.
The staff were very helpful and English was spoken throughout the city.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are much quieter. First floor for those who don't like stairs.

This is a family run smallish hotel. The owner Allan and his team are so obliging and friendly.
There is no aircondtioning so on hot summer days they provide you with standing fans. It's something to do with the building structure parts of which date back around 500 years. You can go for a subterranean tours into the bowels of the hotel and see levels which are perhaps 10 metres below where the road is today. The hotel is sited in the old Jewish quarter of Krakow which is very vibrant. Coming from the UK, it never ceases to amaze me how people can enjoy themselves in pubs and beer gardens until the wee hours of the morning and there is no violence or unpleasantness. No roaming gangs. Wonderful!
I've stayed this hotel many many times and always enjoy it.

Room Tip: ask to overlook the cemetery. It's quieter!!

We went to Krakow for a long weekend. This hotel is in the Jewish quarter but the main part of the city is within easy reach on foot or by tram. The same tram stop has a tram which takes you back to the station for the airport too- no need for taxis! There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. Staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful and speak v good english. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The only negative was that breakfast wasn't too varied - and relied heavily on providing different sorts of cheese. The breakfast room was accessed by quite a few steps, so would not be suitable for disabled or older people who can't manage stairs. Otherwise, highly recommended.
