Me and my boyfriend stayed in the Spatz hotel for three nights April 2013 and I couldn't have been happier with the choice of accommodation. The hotel is in an ideal location with lots of attractions and things to do within walking distance. The staff are extremely friendly and speak very good English. At the end of our stay we were given a loyalty card which gets you a 10% discount off staying in the hotel again.
We stayed in room four which is at the front of the hotel and, as previous reviews have commented you can hear the comings and goings from the street below. That said, however, there was no noise through the night and our sleep was not disturbed (who wants to lie in on holiday anyway!)
We took a walk to the main square which is beautiful and definitely worth a visit, as is Wawel castle (also walking distance).
We ate in the Mexican restaurant in the hotel on our first night, given the chance again I would skip this and opt for one of the many beautiful restaurants dotted around Krakow. There are lots of places to eat in the main square but it is also worth exploring the side streets (every street you turn down has an eatery of some kind!)
At the back of the hotel is a place called Plac Nowy, if your looking for nice bars and (of course) more restaurants, then head here. Just past Plac Nowy is the Jewish Quarter which we didn't really get chance to explore.
We hired a driver for one day to take us to Auschwitz and the Salt mines, he was very friendly and spoke very good English.
We are already talking about going back and would stay in the same hotel. Krakow is a beautiful place and I would recommend it to anyone!
