I was a little worried about staying in this hotel after reading some of the reviews re noise. However, maybe our timing was perfect for during our 3 night stay we did not experience any noise whatsoever. Not sure if building work has finished or the fact we arrived the day before a national holiday (1st Nov).
The hotel is very much a boutique hotel, minimalistic and very stylish. Our room was comfortable although a little dark and like a previous reviewer mentioned, we too, had a problem with some of the lights not working. We did mention this to reception on our first night and bulbs removed but not replaced until day three and then one of them stopped working. The bathroom was very clean and stylish and although we had a jacuzzi bath we found out on the last evening (whilst trying to use it) that this too didn't work, which was a little disappointing.
Breakfast was included in our rate and we were very impressed with the breakfast area, which again in keeping with the style of the hotel,was very stylish and although not the largest buffet on offer, there was more than enough choice especially as you could have a range of hot choices too.
In fact, we were so impressed with the presentation of our scrambled and poached eggs we decided to book a table in the evening and again were not disappointed.
The one thing you cannot fault this hotel on is the location! Right on the edge of Krakow's main square and within easy walking distance of many of Krakow's sights.
One final thing to comment on is the spa facilities. Although we didn't have any massages we did make use of the pool, steam and sauna. Very relaxing after a day of sight seeing.
All in all a very enjoyable stay - would definitely return.
