We stayed here for a short break in April and I was very pleased with our choice of hotel. Check in was friendly and efficient, I was also offered an upgraded castle/river view room due to my gold a-club member status. We were given a map, provided with details of a company running trips (which we didn’t use) and advised of the direction to walk to the Old Town to eat that evening (10 minute walk).
The room was spacious with a lovely bathroom and nice toiletries and the view from the room was really good. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of space in the seating area. Wi-fi was free and we were provided with codes on check-in.
Krakow itself is a lovely city and it felt very safe. We visited the Castle and Cathedral (a pleasant walk along the river from the hotel), the Old Town (again a short walk) and the Schindler Factory Museum (went there by taxi and returned on foot via the Ghetto and the Jewish Quarter). We also went to a performance at the Krakow Philharmonic Hall which was excellent and very good value for money (tickets worked out at about £10 each). There are many beautiful churches in Krakow and we popped into quite a few to admire the architecture and the Market Square is wonderful for sitting in the sun and watching the world go by.
We didn’t eat an evening meal in the hotel (there are so many places to eat and prices are very cheap) but the menu looked good and excellent value. We did have breakfast and were very impressed with the choice and quality of the food on offer. We had a couple of drinks in the bar (including the compulsory Polish Vodka) and found prices to be reasonable for a large hotel and the bar tender was very friendly and helpful.
Some people may prefer to stay in the centre of all the action around the Town Square, but for us the hotel was ideal, quiet with nice views, a short walk to the main attractions and a spacious, clean and comfortable room.
