We just returned from our trip to Poland. We stayed for 2 nights at the Pod Roza. The Hotel was very nice and had a great breakfast included in the price of the room. Usually continental breakfast in the States means coffee and cold pastry, but this breakfast was amazing...eggs, meats, cheeses. Very nice.
My reason for booking with the Pod Roza was to be a bit off the main square, because I understood it could be noisy- but the hotel is across a side street from a bar- and since the weather was so beautiful, people were outside yelling, singing etc. until 3:00 AM. Keeping the windows closed and using the a/c helped a bit- but it still kept us up at night.
Being 40 somethings that are a bit past the rowdy bar scene, we were happy that we chose not to spend the entire time in Krakow in this Hotel and moved up to the other side of the Florianska Gate- a little further walk to the Square, but far more quiet in the evenings.
