I'm quite picky but cannot fault this hotel for its price, and even if it were dearer I'd still have trouble criticising.
As others have said, its modern, and very well thought out decor wise - the zebrano type wood in the bedrooms continues in the restaurant, and one thing I thought particularly nice was the corridor carpets were red with white patterning, and the carpet in the bedrooms was exact reverse, which gave continuity. Nice touches - an umbrella in the room plus an iron and ironing board, still an dfizzy water refreshed free every day. No tea making facilties - but I think thats a British thing, and don't expect it in Europe, and the pillows others complain about I thought were great - so much so I took note of ther supplier to try and get some!! I've met them before in Austria, and again it's a European thing - they're not British, remember!
Breakfast exceptional - 10 prepared fresh fruits plus 'straight' unpeeled untouched fruit, and strawberry jam to die for! We had no problems with seating over our 5 night stay, and I was in a wheelchair so would have had difficulty in reaching the top level but didn't have to for breakfast. We didn't book a low table for dinner one night, and I had to clamber the stairs but the staff were most apologetic and helped me so I cannot complain.
Due to our travelling difficulties we did use the restaurant every night and weren't disappointed once - on Tuesdays and Thursdays they offer fresh river trout (in small print but definitely worth remembering - delightful!). Portions were huge - I didn't finish a dish I think, and even 'simple' ice cream came with fresh fruit salad.
Staff are one of this hotles biggest assets - smart, polite, well englished - all a pleasure. Room was pristine, even things like grout which let down so many places. My only minor niggle was standard bath towels - I much prefer sheets - and I was told there are a lot of comments about these but they are standard across the group - I didn't have the heart to say they could be larger across the group then!
Taxi to town was about 15 zloty, £3, although we did walk back along the river one day, which was fine for me but pushing a chair in 35 degree heat (unseasonable we were told, more like August) wasn't easy. Spot the pig in the river and tell me if you find out its reason!
In town, the underground museum isn't in many guide books 'cos it only opened 2010/11, but was worth it's 17 zloty admission, and had a nice small fairly exclusive cos of its location cafe.
Would definitely stay again on future visits to Krakow - can't say better.
