This is a great guest house with a very nice breakfast, there is full continental breakfast and a waiter will approach and ask if you want cooked sausage and eggs. Its not full of busloads of tourists and the staff is helpful. Its in a residential neighborhood across the river from the Castle and not too far walking distance to the main square. The rooms were modern, clean and had air conditioning, like all Polish hotels the beds are hard. No sense fighting it, we found this everywhere in Poland. Travel tip, catch the bus yourself to the Salt Mines it cost us about $7 round trip. Just around the corner from the guest house is a bus stop. They are small mini-buses and you have to wave them down when you see them approaching or they won't stop. Ask the Desk clerk to write down the correct Bus name in Polish and stand just to the left of the covered bus stand. The local tour companies will charge about eighty dollars per person on a "guided tour" and you get the same thing. We saved a ton on copying the Tour Company itineraries and just doing it with local transport. Krakow is a great stop, don't miss the Jewish ghetto best values for dining are to be found off the square. We found a restaraunt just outside the main square next door to the highly advertised restaruant for tourists that has a look of a home with different dining rooms. The meal was about 7 bucks and quite good. Next door you would pay forty each for the same thing. I think this guest house was one of the best values in Poland.

This little hotel is a little out of the way, but don't let that put you off. It's a pleasant walk to the castle and city, plus has a great onsite restaurant with delicious traditional Polish food. The staff treated you as honoured guests and really went out of the way to make everything as pleasant as possible - even the staff who didn't know english.

The room we were in was clean and modern, although had two single beds (not the best for the honeymooners like us). We also raided the mini-bar as the pricing was reasonable!

One other benefit is the hotel is a not-for-profit organisation. Profits from the hotel go to rehabilitating disabled locals.

The best endorsement a traveller can give is that they're willing to return to the hotel over any other choice - next time I am in Krakow I will definately stay again.

What a fantastic hotel, on beautiful grounds. So close to the city centre that we strolled in for dinner (only a ten minute walk).

A lovely touch on arrival was the gardener cutting roses from the garden and putting them in our room.
The hotel had free internet access, good sized rooms and very spacious clean tidy bathroom.

Breakfast is served in a lovely dining room overlooking the rose gardens, and the dining room itself was full of natural light. Breakfast buffet was classic European style and the staff approached us at the table to ask if we would like cooked items.

A big plus for this hotel is that although it is close to the city centre, it is not right in the middle of the other hotels so you are away from the drunken groups in Krakow for stag nights, and away from the more famous overcrowded areas heavily promoted in travel guides.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we re-booked to stay later the same week after a short trip down to Slovakia and enjoyed ourselves just as much the second time.

Highly recommended!

A lovely little hotel a mere 10 minute walk from the main attractions. Very helpful staff - being Polish they will wait to be asked rather than offer assistance but once asked will help with everything. The city centre is very attractive with excellent bars and restaurants. It was very good value for money. The other benefit of staying here is that the profits help support a charity for disabled people. Food is good if limited choice, breakfast is good but you must ask what the hot choices are. The hotel is very quite is lovely grounds - ideal for a relaxed stay in a lovely city.
