“Fantastic location, very comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Rooms overlooking the square have a fantastic view. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom very nice, if slightly dimly lit. You might think it would be loud seeing as it is right on the square, but in fact the two sets of windows made it perfectly quiet. The breakfast spread is delicious, even the automatic coffee machine (which often suck) was great. My only issue was that I didn't usually want the extensive, and somewhat pricey at 60 zl, breakfast. Coffee shops with simple breakfast are directly across the square, however. Staff was very friendly, extremely helpful, and responsive. I highly recommend Wentzl.

The staff in this hotel should teach other hotel staff how to behave. Impeccable behaviour, helpful and in an intelligent way which is not easy to find. Breakfast was great, the building is beautiful. Room is a little dark but who cares really when it is so comfortable. In room services included: Mini bar, Nespresso machine, safe and dvds were available from reception, you just select and they bring it to your room. Everything I need when I travel for business. The laundry service is available either as a 24hr service or 3 hr service as I chose, everything returned perfectly pressed in 3 hours. The restaurant is operated independently but you can still order room service from them. Excellent, if rich, food. I had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the beautiful historic square with a mini balcony full of geraniums. I felt like the pope when he steps out to address the people when I looked out from there. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

We had a great few days in Krakow. Hotel was in perfect location, service was superb, staff couldn't have been more helpful. The room was excellent, we highly recommend this hotel. We hope to go back one day.

As soon as we walked into the building and into the room, we knew we had chosen the right place to stay. The décor is beautiful in the rooms and around the hotel – the hotel has a period charm to it and each room is uniquely and luxuriously decorated. Krakow is such an old and beautiful city and the hotel fits in well here. We stayed in a room overlooking the main square on the 2nd floor and it is hard to describe how magical it is when the main square is lit up and you hear all the noises of the square in the evening- the music, the horses, the people chatting. I enjoyed just sitting by the window, people watching and drinking wine. The bed was so comfortable, the bathroom was gorgeous and the mini-bar and tea/coffee facilities were plentiful and constantly refreshed- I never wanted to leave the hotel. And the buffet breakfast, albeit not the cheapest in town, had a wide variety and you certainly dined in style with the beautiful chandeliers and Renaissance-like setting.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and communicated well leading up to our stay.
We will definitely be staying here again when we are back in Krakow!

Everything about this fabulous hotel not only met our expectations but exceeded them. We arrived at reception 2 hours before check in time but our room was ready, it was on the 4th floor and had a small balcony and a spectacular view of the square. The bed was kingsize, extremely comfortable with separate duvets, comfy pillows and crisp white linen. We had a flatscreen tv, comfortable armchairs, fridge/minibar, plenty wardrobe space, very efficient air conditioning and a large bathroom with waterfall shower and plenty toiletries, slippers, bathrobes, hairdryer. We might have liked a bath and hadn't noticed when booking there wasn't one, but that is a minor issue. In the wardrobe was an easy to operate safe. Something I must mention is the effectiveness of the double? glazing on the glass door to the balcony, when it was closed we couldn't hear a sound in the room from the square.
The turn-down service in the evening was very welcome, curtains closed, lights on, beds turned down, tomorrow weather forecast left along with delicious chocolates.
We had breakfast in the hotel and the food was very good, a choice of cereals, yoghurts, fruit juices, bread, pastries, cheeses, salmon, cold meats, in fact all anyone could want. There was also hot food on offer, bacon, sausage and omelette cooked to order with any choice of filling. Please do not miss out on breakfast if you stay here as the breakfast room is beyond description! It is amazing. Once you get to know how to operate the bean to cup coffee machine it is no problem and makes delicious coffee!
Staff at reception were really friendly, helpful and booked us an excellent trip, if we had stayed longer we would have done more.
The location of the hotel is perfect and we were able to come in and out, for a rest, or a warm jumper or whatever, just so easily done from the main square.
If/when we come back to Krakow we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. Thank you all staff of Wentzl for making us feel so welcome and comfortable.

Room Tip: On the 4th floor we had a balcony overlooking the square, the double glazed door kept all the sound...

Excellent
Breakfasts were not as we expected and waiting staff made no interaction with customers it was a very somber atmosphere
We loved every other part of it though and thoroughly enjoyed our meal n the restaurant that was a totally different experience

This is our third stay in Krakow and Hotel Wentzl. Here you feel welcome from the start. The service is impeccable, the rooms fantastic and the location is perfect. When you walk out the door you're right in the center of all events. We will be back!
