We call this hotel the “Lucky Wentzl”-lucky that it has such incredible views because otherwise it’s a three star hotel. We spent four days here and felt it was overrated.
The location is without question its best asset and the views over the market square are wonderful. That being said, Krakow is an amazing city and you won’t ever want to be in your room so the negatives of this hotel well outweigh the fantastic views. Overall it’s a comfortable boutique hotel with a friendly staff . The breakfast was adequate but not memorable. There are two types of rooms so be sure to book a “deluxe” room. The “normal” rooms are very small with no drawers to put clothing and no space to put more than one suitcase. There are some small quirks that need to be fixed. For example, the rooms have a coffee machine but creamer is not available so must be drunk black. There is no place in the bathroom to place a toiletry kit. There is only one employee in the dining room so if you happen to be there when several other guests arrive, it can be painfully slow process to order eggs, get coffee, etc. The waitress we had every day was wonderful-simply overwhelmed to handle everything by herself. Overall it’s a decent hotel but we won’t stay there again. Stay at the Bonerowski Palace if you want a similar view or stay at the Copernicus if you want an upper end hotel close to the castle. We visited both after being disappointed with the Wentzl and will stay at one of those next time.
