We spent three nights at Hotel Karmel and were very happy we made this choice. The hotel is in a recently renovated and emerging district for restaurants and bars, and in the heart of the Jewish sites. It is quick and easy to get by foot and tram to Krakow Main Square (maybe 15 minutes). The hotel is on a quiet street and we were bothered very little by any nightlife in the area. All the staff spoke English fairly well and were extremely professional and helpful. The room was small, as other reviewers mentioned, but comfortable and clean and nicely appointed. It was fine for two people (I was traveling with my daughter). There are several flights of stairs to carry bags up and we were on the top floor (3 flights). One staff member did volunteer to help us when we were leaving. The breakfasts were the best on our trip. They had a wide assortment of food, plus would make omelets and scrambled eggs to order. They will also make espresso drinks, which, being from Seattle, I appreciated quite a bit! We had an early flight the day we checked-out and the staff packed a breakfast bag for us to take with us, which was a welcome surprise. We also had a wonderful dinner at the Italian restaurant downstairs that was very reasonably priced (as were all the restaurants in Krakow). We would stay here again and recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good value a little out of the tourist stream, but still convenient and with lots of nice character.
