Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Situated in a perfect location. The rooms are very clean, warm and comfortable and have everything you need. The staff are brilliant and so helpful, offering great advice and fantastic recommendations for breakfast and evening meal. I highly recommend the Globtroter and will definitely stay there again when I next visit Krakow.

The location is perfect, situated in the Old Quarter, with restaurants, coffee shops and
groceries a lovely 0 - 10 minute walk away. The hotel staff is welcoming, knowledgable and anxious to help. They arrange tours or advise you how to explore on your own, providing information on locations, times and transportation options. Our room was a nice size with comfortable beds. All was spotlessly clean. Some of my family found the room a bit cool but the cozy blankets, available in our closet, provided great sleeping conditions. A small thing was the fact that the toilet water ran continuously but we simply turned off the water valve at night. We will be staying at Globtroter when we return to Krakow.

This hotel is in a prime location,central to main square and lots of great bars and restaurants.
The staff were fantastic and did all they could to help our stay in Krakow run smoothly,from collecting us from the airport to taking us to Aushwitz,for a fee, but cheaper than street prices. This hotel is nothing fancy,however its clean,warm and all you need as your there to sight see!! If you want super fancy then you will pay alot more but i cant see why as the "Globtroter Guest House" is bloody great!!
I will stay there on my next visit to Krakow :)

I had an absolute ball in Krakow, and having stayed at GGH was a big player in that - the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the location couldn't be better. The location of Globtroter was the biggest thing for me - literally 2 or 3 minutes walk to the main market square and St Mary's church, one of the most popular meeting points. I don't think the rooms are cleaned all that often, but overall a great experience. Make sure you check out Charlotte's across the street for breakfast! I couldn't help but go back every day!

Fantastic central location, friendly helpful staff and spotless rooms. So pleased we found this gem and would recommend it. We'll certainly be going back again. Try out the Scandale Royal for breakfast, spent one night working our way through the cocktail menu. Love Krakow and Poland

I booked this place because of the excellent reviews i read on here, and i was not disappointed..
It is in an excellent position, very close to the center of the old square,.
The room was warm and very clean, it had old furniture but this added to the feel of the "old Poland", if you are wanting a modern up to date style of accommodation, then this is not for you, however, the bathroom was modern, fully tiled which felt like it had underfloor heating...
The staff were very friendly and could not help you enough..we really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate going back
