“A good time had by all”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We chose Poland for our holiday this year & decided on Krakow because of its history & I can certainly say it didn't disappoint.
The hotel Alexander was very close to the main square so was ideal for getting out & about.
The hotel itself was ideal , we were bed & breakfast and were pleasantly surprised at what was on offer , we could choose from cereals , a 'cooked' breakfast as well as the normal continental options.
The only minus point with the hotel was that it didn't have a bar as such but we didn't find this too inconvenient with it being so close to the main centre were prices were so cheap so it didn't make much difference.
The weather was glorious , could even say was too hot.
The city offered lots of good drinking & eating options to appeal to everyone ,we especially loved the soup that came served in a bread bowl ,was excellent.
Krakow offered lots of excursion options, we took in Auschwitz , the salt mines and the city tour and all offered good value for money.
All in all this was an excellent city option & we might even consider coming back some time in the future but maybe in winter when we could take in its xmas markets.
Would recommend to anyone looking to get away and visit a city with a lot of culture and history.

Room Tip: If visiting in summer then air con is a must , we had it but speaking to others who didn't they...

Just back from a 3 night stay here . Hotel was nice and as the title says it " Did the job " .

Breakfast was included but I didn't like very much of it but I am a fussy eater . The 3 people with me managed to find stuff so it was ok . Location is perfect for the main market square . Probably a 10 minute walk away .

Room was clean and tidy but I booked a double room and got 2 single beds . Went to reception and they said it would be fixed the next day and it was .

Only other moan was the price . A couple bought the same room and times as us on another site and got it for about £50 cheaper so shop around .

Just a few minutes from the main centre square, the Hotel Alexander was comfortable, clean, cool in the intensive summer heat and provided a good breakfast. The rooms are relatively small but served the purpose for a weekend away. They organised the Auschwitz tour with ease and there were no additional costs or complications - very smooth. Very quite and peaceful nights sleep.

Room Tip: We were on the fourth floor at the back, very quiet and very comfortable.

Just back from a 4 night stay at the Alexander hotel and have to say it was really good value for money. The room was a decent size and clean. We thought the layout with the tv and the electricity points could have been better. All the sockets were behind the television so it was difficult to plug anything in! Only bath towels were provided no hand towels, but they were changed when necessary. The breakfast was very good, plenty of choice. We found the location excellent and would recommend the hotel to anyone. Krakow is a lovely city, plenty going on and prices were really cheap. Would recommend Mamma Mia restaurant just round the corner from the hotel.

Stayed here a few times whilst on business in Krakow. Quite a small,basic hotel but the location is excellent and price is very reasonable. Very pleasant staff also and it is clean also. If u want a cheap and cheerful hotel in Krakow look no further!

just got back from krakow where we stayed at the Alexander hotel for 5 nights - was a bit worried when told our rooms were in the annex due to the comments i'd read on trip advisor - we were all pleased with our rooms which were clean and roomy. The breakfast was continental but there was always something to eat for everyone in our party, the hotel staff very helpful and overall we all had a very nice time
