Last December we visited Hotel Karmel for the second time. The hotel with it's beautiful facade is located in Kazimierz (the former Jewish quarter) and it's about a 15 minutes walk from Rynek Glowny, the square in the old town. Kazimierz is a lovely area both day and night. In the night there are several bars, playing great music, full of students and other locals. The interior of these bars is very interesting and not any touristic at all. If you don't want to walk to and from the old town, the taxis are almost free!
The hotel does also have a very nice interior. We did stay in a Comfort Plus room and it was spacious and with lovely furniture. The breakfast was good and served in the very atmospheric cellar. A very good hotel with a great location and it was very inexpensive as well.
But please remember one thing. The Poles tend to be very shy. In a B&B in Italy you often will feel like visiting family after staying there just one night, not so in Poland. They are not unfriendly or hostile or anything, just very shy. But just take the initiative and say hello to them first and you will have a good time. We did!
