“Wonderful Staff, Wonderful Position - but beware school parties”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

This hotel - quite unpretentious- is in an excellent position. It is a five minute walk from the Old Town and just up the road (turn right when leaving the Hotel) there is a supermarket and a twenty-four alcohol shop. Also a Post office.
I have to say that the Staff are outstanding - nothing is too much trouble. They booked us an brilliant (but tiring) Walking Tour of Krakow. (It took four and a half hours) It was very informative and we learnt a lot about Polish History. The Guide was brilliant. He timed things to perfection. I would recommend this.
Everything is spotlessly clean. The rooms are quite adequate and brilliantly maintained. Clean towels etc everyday.
The Breakfast had, I thought, something for every taste. Cereals; Fresh fruit, cake, cold cuts. cheeses, egg mayonnaise, cake. and cooked fare - scrambled eggs, sausages, etc. Excellent.
There were a couple of school parties staying here during our stay. They were rather excited and somewhat noisy! (How ever, I cannot help thinking of my own grandchildren and how excited they would be.) It was not a big problem and did not disrupt very much!! The mornings were quite. Just a word of advice - if a school party is in house, get down to Breakfast at 7.45am to beat the rush!!!!!
Christophe on the desk was fantastic. Thank you for getting the Premier League Football Results.
I would happily return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Not a problem here - if you have a room overlooking the street (as we did) there is a little noise b...

The Alexander has a central location close to cafe's and Restaurants . The room( in the main building) was spotless, cleaned daily , towels replaced daily( providing you follow the instructions and leave dirty linen on the floor) Tea & coffe making facilities ...good, when you felt like an early morning cuppa. Very warm and cosy. Good value for money. Will return to this hotel. The reception staff had very good English. Breakfasts were ample ... and plenty of fresh fruit & endless cups of tea. A nice touch were the filled soap ( at sink) and shower Gel ( in the shower cubicle) dispensers. 2 items less to pack.

Just had 4 great night stay here. The hotel and rooms are spotless warm and cosy,the breakfast plentiful and fresh. The locationt is perfect 5 mins from the Old city centre with plenty of bars and restaurants. There is nothing to fault this hotel except a bar if you like a relaxing drink after a long day doing all the fabulous trips.

Hotel is close to the old town and the train station, only a 3-4 min walk to the former and 10 mins to the latter. The room was comfortable for the both of us, however the sink was cramped in the corner next to the toilet, and we had to watch not to slam the top of our heads on the glass shelf right above the sink when we were washing up. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast which had a good variety on offer. And the staff were nice and friendly.
