“Fantastic Hotel, Great quiet location”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

As a regular visitor to Krakow we have stayed in a number of Hotels and apartments, however we chose Grodek Hotel to stay in for a week during the week of our wedding. The staff are excellent and very helpfull, the rooms are spotless and the decor is in keeping with the towns charm without being too 'fussy'. I would recommend Grodek to any one wanting a quiet city centre hotel with exceptional service and comfort.

Not sure if the hotel deserves 5 stars. It's a charming hotel, close to the centre, our room was quite big and very clean, the bed was made out of 2 single ones and as an antique furniture was a little wobbly when someone moved at night. Impossible to regulate the room temperature, which is set up by reception. The view we had was at the backyard.
The little library with the fireplace and a bar prefect after all day walking in a cold weather, but the sitting area in front of a fire enough only for 2 people..
Breakfast modest but tasty. Staff nice and polite but lacking of warmth and a genuie interest in guests.

I recently spent 2 nights at Hotel Grodek in Krakow. This is a very nice and reasonably priced hotel reminiscent of a bed and breakfast in Western Europe. It is just outside the walled Old City (on a street that runs along the wall). You can easily use this hotel as a base to walk virtually anywhere in Krakow, and the Old City is literally in back of the hotel.

The decor is clean and Polish. While it is a part of a Polish chain of small boutique hotels, it in no way feels like a chain. It has unique architecture and each room is unique. The rooms themselves are clean and at least in my case, quite small. Given the location of the hotel adjacent to the Old City, this was to be expected and was not a disappointment, but if you are traveling with a larger family or lots of bags, you may need to get a larger room than I did or inquire about square footage. the bathroom is modern and updated, well lit and clean. I gave the sleep quality 3 stars because bedding is an integrated duvet with no cover sheets and I was often too hot. Given its proximity to the Old City, the rooms can be a little dark as well (since the wall to the city is on one side of the hotel). Other than that, the room was very comfortable and clean.

There isn't much of a lobby, but there is a nice library with a fireplace, and on the lower level there is a dining room/breakfast room. Breakfast is included and it is a large spread. Breakfast was very good. The staff are excellent and the service is outstanding. I did several tours of krakow and outside of Krakow and the staff were very helpful with all arrangements and recommendations. I highly recommend this hotel for its service, value, location and uniqueness.

That being said, the real attraction of Krakow, is Krakow itself, so don't expect to spend too much time at any hotel. There is a lot to see and do in the city. It is rich in culture, history, cuisine and nightlife.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter; rooms in the front get more sunlight. Every room is different, try t...

Just spent 3 nights in Krakow and had a wonderful stay at this great little Hotel. Firstly its location is superb for the traditional Old town, its a 2 minute walk and being in a cul-de-sac there is little noise. There is some building work going on next door but that didnt bother us at all. A lovely warm fire welcomes you in reception which was swift and polite. The rooms are warm and decorated nicely throughout. Bathrooms spacious (hairdryer rubbish as is normal!)
Breakfast is good with plenty of variety, even hot bacon and eggs available. The Bar is a little small and quite expensive but who cares with the town so close! Overall a great Hotel where you can hideaway and relax at the end of a day walking around Krakows' delights.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in November 2011. Good location near the center of Krakow. The rooms are "homey", nice, clean, and nicely decorated. We arrived late Friday, so we deiced to eat at the hotel. What a surprise !! Extremely good food and service. Huge thank´s to the chef. The quality of the breakfast was also more than we expected. We would certainly recommend this hotel (and restaurant) to anyone wanting a special experience in Krakow.

We stayed at this hotel in October. it is very well located near the the market and other attractions as well as some restaurants. The rooms are clean, cozy and nicely decorated. The public areas are charming. The breakfast buffet is very good. The service provided at the front desk and in the breakfast room was excellent. Workers were so friendly and helpful! The servers in the breakfast room were so accommodating with special coffee orders from our table. We would recommend this hotel and would stay there again if visiting Krakow.
