“Friendly but noisy and in need of renovation”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

As noted by others, the early 1900s lift in this hotel is a sight in itself. Unfortunately, it seems the rooms did not get much of a makeover since those times.

Staff is friendly, the WiFi is weak and for better or for worse, the main square is just around the corner - convenient whenever you feel like going out, but not so good when you need a decent sleep.

If it is the latter you are after, I would recommend a more modern hotel just outside the city centre.

Centrally located, friendly hotel off the main square in clean and spacious rooms. Good breakfast and facilities in room but can be noisy at night with nearby nightclubs.

The hotel is yards away from the square where all the bars and restaurants are found no need for taxis and easy to walk about.The hotel is a 3 star rooms are basic but clean with good bathrooms although.no air con .Breakfast in the adjoining bar isnt great you will eat something because it is included but you wouldnt walk in from the street and pay for it.NOISE LEVEL the rooms which run down the side of the hotel and are above the lizard king night club (about 20) are unbelievably noisy infact i had read other trip advisor comments and thought they must be exagerating .SADLY NOT.Noise doesnt end until 6am. Krakow is popular because it is a nice city and alcohol is cheap infact at the end of the road is a 24 hour bar selling beer at 80 pence and spirits at £1.the most we paid for a beer was £2 average about £1.40.I was at a stag however you need to be aware on the 1st night 4 people in our group had their money or wallets stolen,Two women approach men on their own and either ask for a light for their cigarette or cuddle you whilst emptying your pocket.Every evening i was approached by the same 2 women but was sober enough to deal with them but others werent so lucky.You can book a trip to Auschwitz from hotel about £26 takes about 6 hours in total very interesting and seems an opportuniy not to missas you are nearby.So I would recommend Krakow nice city it is good for stags but do beware .The hotel is great for stags due to its location and sleep doesnt concern them as they are probably making the noise.However for couples.families etc unless you can gaurantee you can get a room at the back wouldnt recommend it .Personally i wouldnt take the chance as the hotel isnt that good and there are plenty others maybe 100 yards away that are not surronded by clubs and pubs however to be fair probably sunday to thursday at saski is much quiter.

Room Tip: get a room at the back or dont bother

This hotel is very understated in decor, but has fantastic quality and value! The old-fashioned elevator is very charming. The front desk staff and bell men were so friendly and kind. The location can not be beat, about 40 steps away from the main square. There was a little peripheral evening noise from nearby clubs and of course the town bugler but it didn't bother me a bit - I slept soundly on a very comfortable bed in a very large room. The morning breakfast is ample and the staff in the bar are very kind as well.

We chose to stay at Saski since the location appeared to be very central, just off the Old Town square. However, what we were not aware of was that the street the hotel is situated on has numerous bars, a couple which are right next to and across the hotel. At night, scores of tourists and young kids gather on the street at these bars and there is loud singing and merry making which lasts till 5 am. We could not get any sleep at all for the two nights we stayed. We met some other hotel guests, and they experienced the same problem as well.

The hotel itself is sort of ok - beds are twins, not queen or king. Disposable plastic cups in the room instead of glasses. Hot water takes forever to come out of the bathroom taps - we had to let the shower run for five minutes before the water became even luke warm. No safety box in rooms. Staff is polite. The room price is not really good value for money.

My advice to anyone visiting Krakow and looking for a centrally located hotel would be - look for a hotel situated at least two or three blocks away from the square, not closer. Choose one ideally away from a bar, and on a cross street, not on a main arterial street leading to the square. You can still walk to the square in two or three minutes, and you can distance yourself from the noise created by the throngs of merry makers every night.

This hotel was a great choice because of location, it is on the edge of the Market Square and very close to good shopping and cafes. The only reason I do not give it a higher rating is that you can hear so much noise coming from the street below, it is hard to sleep. Also the bed is actually two beds put together instead of one mattress. Aside from that it was good. We very much enjoyed the restaurant that is connected to the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, if there is one

We really enjoyed our stay at this charming hotel. Rooms were very clean, bathrooms were modern. Location was great being just off the main square, footsteps away from restaurants and bars. Complementary breakfast was just ok(they could do better). Would consider staying there again.

Room Tip: Request a double bed, otherwise you might get two twins.
