“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Had a four night break here. Perfect setting, in quiet square with good restaurants nearby. 15-20 minutes pleasant walk from main square. Staff were helpful and the hotel had good facilities. Breakfast gave extensive choice, with cooked items on request.

Room Tip: Avoid the room where windows open onto a corridor.

I have just returned from a weekend break with friends. The Rubenstein hotel was in the Jewish area of the city, about a 15 minute walk from the main square. We had a triple room, very spacious, lovely marble bathroom, 3 single beds which was a bonus as most hotels now are a double and a single. There was also a mini bar and safe. Could not fault the room only negative was there was no hot water on our last morning but when I advised of this at checkout was told the whole hotel was affected. There was plenty choice at the breakfast buffet, we had scrambled eggs from the hot buffet as well. Krakow is a beautiful city, so much history. We will be returning as didnt have enough time to see all the sights and would definately stay at the Rubenstein again,

Room Tip: We had room 305, at the back of the hotel.

This was a very nice hotel. Nice arcitecture. The rooms were nice and the hotel had a great roof terasse on the top floor. Everything was perfect except the reception staff, one of them working night was very helpful and friendly, but the rest should go on a smiling course.

Great location!

My Partner and I have just returned from a five day stay in Krakow. We stayed in the Rubinstein Hotel which is situated in the square in the old Jewish town.10 min walk to Wawel Castle, 15 min walk to large square, 30 min walk to Schindler's Factory. Excellent location lots of things to see and do and we walked to most of them as Krakow is very flat so easy walking. Krakow is one of the cleanest places I have ever visited. No matter what public toilet I used they were all very well maintained. No litter!

Brilliant Hotel !!!!!!! The staff were so friendly. Plenty of choice at breakfast and everything so fresh and clean. We ate in the restaurant the first night we arrived and the food (A la carte) and service was 1st class. Our room was amazing the bathrooms (we had 2) were beautiful and the hairdryers were as good as mine at home. the shower was very powerful and always had hot water.

Really looking forward to a return visit and most definitely be booking the RUBENSTEIN HOTEL

Thank you for making our stay so pleasurable.

The hotel is located in the incredibly charming area of Kazimierz. Nearby you can find lots of great restaurants with different cuisines, and cute bistros and bars. The Main Square and the castle is within walking distance, and takes about 15 minutes.

The standard rooms are big and cozy and has great bathrooms with marbles and modern showers. The breakfast has everything you could expect. Scrambled eggs, omelets or warm sausages can be ordered and served fresh by smiling staff. Excellent!

In general the service at the hotel is excellent, both breakfast and cleaning personnel. The staff in the reception however, were not equally service minded. When asked to order a new taxi since the first one did not arrive, we received a very negative attitude and it seemed as we were asking too much.

Room Tip: We had windows going to the corridor, and not to the outside. If you mind people passing by your roo...

Recently my husband and I returned home from yet another marvelous trip to our favourite European city Krakow and stayed once more at the FABULOUS Rubinstein Residence.
We just adore the Rubinstein and cannot praise the owner , management and staff highly enough
.It is like " coming home " as we step out of the taxi and the welcome we receive from the dear friends we have made in the Rubinstein gladdens our hearts .
It is a pleasure to see everyone again and a joy to stay in this beautiful hotel with its elegant charm and sophistication.
The weather was exceptionally hot even for krakow.... whilst we were there some days the temperature exceeded 94F.
It was a pleasure to sit outside in the " summer garden " terrace sipping ice cold drinks , having lunch or a late evening meal enjoying the unique atmosphere of Szeroka Street ( which is large enough to be a square in its own right ) .
So many people come to Szeroka Street for its historical value but also because of the wonderful restaurants and bars and the buzz is wonderful.
As often happens ....when people stop by for a drink or a meal when eating outside enjoying the late evening sunshine conversations start upand its often remarked how lucky we are to be staying in such a beautiful hotel with wonderful food and ambiance .
We would never dream of staying anywhere else in Krakow....this was our 8th stay so I think that speaks for itself !
The food is divine , the chef is so gifted and its a culinary delight to sample his delicious dishes.
Service is always perfect and carried out unobtrusively and with a high degree of professionalism yet the staff are approachable and only to willing to help quide you in your choice of dish or wine if so desired.
Everyone endeavors to make your stay pleasurable and enjoyable and they all work as a team with excellent guidance from the managers and the owner.
We look forward to December when once again we will be staying at the wonderful Rubinstein Residence and enjoying the warm , friendly ambiance of this very sophisticated and grown up residence.
You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here ....it's very special !

We stayed here at Easter 2013. The weather was quite grim, lots of snow, but the hotel was really warm and cosy. the location is good - about a 20 minute walk from Wawel castle. The breakfasts were lovely - you pay extra for some of the dishes, but the pancakes with fruit were absolutely fabulous and well worth the little extra. We thought that the price of the hotel was good value, it was comfortable and had character - would have no hesitation in recommending it for a break in krakow.
