“Really nice hotel in Krakow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

I wasn't sure what to expect but the rooms were really clean and air conditioned. The staff were very friendly. The hotel was only 5-10 minute walk from Rynek Glowny (the main square). Breakfast was basic but it did the trick!

We have just arrived home after spending 7 comfortable nights at Hotel Ascot. We have no complaints about anything. The hotel was certainly value for money. There were three of us sharing a room which was spacious, bright, clean and airy. The hotel has an excellent location, just a short walk to the main square, train station and other attractions. Breakfast was pleasant, with a good selection of food in a clean spacious dining area All staff were always friendly and went out of there way to be helpful. We would highly recommend this hotel and would certainly choose the same one on any future visits to this beautiful, historic city. Fantastic stay.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 1st floor at the back of the hotel and although there was a busy railway line ou...

We booked Ascot for its location and price, and it met our expectations in these regards, and exceeded them in every other arena. The staff was the best we've had in two weeks of traveling. Incredibly friendly and helpful (called three restaurants to make a dinner reservation for us), clean, bright, quiet rooms (even with a railway track out the window, which we never heard), and breakfast was nice. Easy walking distance to the main old town square and the train station, and not a bad walk to the castle or anywhere else you'd want to go in town.

We have just got home, after spending 4 nights in Hotel Ascot. We have no complains about anything. Service, rooms, breakfast everything was the best. next time we will stay there again. The train in the back, can not be heard when windows are closed. The hotel is close to the train station and the old city. 5 minutes walk. Great hotel with great service. People in the reception was very helpfull and smiling. Godd hotel in a beautifull city.

Room Tip: Rooms to the back, are close to the train. Close the window and you wont hear it.

Copious smoking outside a hotel front door is objectionable, and worse because our first floor rooms were above the entrance, so could not open the window without being fumed. And the coffee at breakfast was insipid. Poland is not easy for good coffee. But on the bright side, yes a very good location to access old Krakow, good value for our spacious triple room, and the service was energetic and friendly. Restaurant recommendations by chap behind the bar were helpful.

We reserved 2 nights in a triple room, based on the good reviews of this hotel. The air conditioning unit in our room did not work, which made the room (at the back of the hotel) feel like a sauna in the 30+ heat. The windows would only open a bit at the top, which was very miserable having to sweat while we listened to the trains pass by. The reception person responded to our problem by saying "no,no,no" when asked about the possibility of repair or moving to another room. In hindsight, we should have moved to another hotel. The night reception person did loan us a small fan, which was better than nothing at all. There was no "we are sorry" or offer of compensation at checkout time. Krakow is a beautiful city, but we are sorry that we chose to stay at this hotel.

Stayed here for 7 nights in July in a triple room on the first floor at the back of the hotel. The room was of a fine size, fitted with an air conditioner which was a must as the temperature was in the mid 30's at times. The room was clean and kept that way throughout the duration of my visit, towels were changed every day and the bedding every couple of days.
Despite some comments about noisy trains at the rear of the building I was never bothered by them. They crawl by at a slow pace as the hotel is very close to the station.
The breakfasts were fine, good selection of cold meats and cheeses and eggs, sausage and bacon.
I never used the bar, it's quite small and really it would appear good only for a quick drink.
The staff were very polite and with one exception ( a female who clearly knew very little about the city she lived in and gave inaccurate advice, twice, about transport) were very helpful.
The hotel is in an excellent position, easy walking distance to the main square and the Galleria Shopping Centre and a slightly longer stroll to the Kazimierz area.
Overall it did just the job, I'd happily go back and have no hesitation about recommending it, great find due to Tripadvisor.
