“Saved my morning!”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

This place is incredible. I was greatly disappointed to find out my hostel’s “breakfast included” was nothing but instant coffee and store-bought, sliced bread with jelly that was who knows how old, so when I set out to find a good breakfast place, this looked like just the thing! I got coffee (which I think was real, brewed coffee!) the Polish Breakfast, which consisted of sausage, boiled egg with mayo and chive topping (which was better than anticipated!), tomatoes, horseradish and mustard (for the sausages) and a multi-grain roll. It was AWESOME! I was full but not bursting at the seams, and it stuck with me through a long morning of walking!

I stayed here for 4 nights. No elevator though the staff does carry your bags to your room. I had a huge room on the top floor. It had skylights, separate bedroom with queen size bed, living room with couch, 2 chairs and another twin size bed. The room also had a sink and refrigerator. The room was clean and comfortable. My traveling companions though had two different rooms and neither was worth the price. Breakfast was included in the price of the room though you could only choose one item off the menu, which wasn't very much food. The hotel didn't have a computer for guests to use which is unfortunate for travelers who are are traveling without a laptop or phone. There was a room that had a couch and TV on the second level that a computer could be put into for guests to use. The best feature of the hotel was the location - walking distance from the market square. It's an okay hotel but nothing spectacular.

Stayed at Mikolaj for 3 days and had a great time! Location is very convenient. Walking distance from train station and all other attractions. Staff was great!
Included breakfast is good too!
Hotel does not have an elevator, that's the only negative I can think of. The staff helped in moving my luggage - much appreciated!
Would surely recommend to others and return on my next visit.

Just returned last night from 3 nights to celebrate a friend's major birthday in Krakow and stayed at the Hotel Mikołaj.

I can only compliement the stay as the room was massive (no 21 - 3 of us so a triple), spotless and clean. There was a large walk in shower with a powerful jet to blow away the hangovers and a brand new leather settee and 2 matching chairs to lounge around the coffee table and chill.

I had requested that we did not want room 14 and were glad when we did not get it as it is directly above the staff room.

The breakfast was interesting and varied and certainly catered for most tastes (be warned you must ask for coffee otherwise you'll have a long wait).

The restaurant is a must (you get 10% discount off the food AND drinks) and we had a couple of surprisingly cheap and tasty meals there.

The position of the Hotel was the best feature. It is 5 minutes way from the rowdy square, down a pretty side street. Near to the action but away from the noise!

When we checked out at 12, the receptionist allowed us to pack away our luggage in a secure room and booked us a taxi for 6:45 and this allowed us another 6 hours to continue exploring such an interesting and beautiful city!

Nothing to complain about and we'll be back.....

  • Liked — Virtually everything

Stayed at Mikolaj Hotel between the 23rd and 25th February.

Hotel is basic, but very clean and well looked after.
Rooms are large.

No aircon so imagine it gets hot in summer.

But a great budget option.

Continental breakfast is good and quite varied for the size of the place.

Staff are very helpful. My friend, Whisper, became ill on our last day and the staff were very courteous and let him have room after checkout time so he could recouperate.

Great location for old town and Roosters.

We were originally booked in at the Classic Hotel, however on arrival we were informed that our room was unavailable due to English tourists damaging the room? We were then told to go to the Mikolaj which was just around the corner. Both Hotels are well positioned for the old town, restaurants and bars etc. However we were in room no.14 which was very noisy as it is very near to the reception and the reception area is not sealed off from the staircase. The room was adequate, very clean and linen/towels changed frequently. Our concern with this hotel is that there is decorative ironwork on all the windows, and we could not see any fire escape which was a little frightening. Would not stay here again as overall the standard was not acceptable.

The Mikolaj is well placed near the Market Square and next to the Music Academy (which used to be communist party HQ). We stayed in Room 32 at the top of the building. That meant dragging our luggage up 4 long flights of stairs. The room was very large with a sitting area and a good size bathroom. The walls were almost too hot to touch and putting on the a/c was so noisy that you couldn't think, let alone sleep. Things didn't cool until well into the night. Our friends stayed one floor lower but had similar problems. Breakfast is in the celler; very nice, but an additional flight of stairs to climb afterwards.
Staff were friendly and helpful but this isn't a place to stay, particularly since there are many other hotels in the street that look better.
Another reviewer was disappointed that this isn't in the Jewish Quarter. We stayed in the (Kasamiertz) Jewish Quarter later in our trip and found it not nearly as interesting as the Old Town. Also, the food choices in the Old Town are much better and less expensive.

Stayed June 2007
