Perfect place for a weekend stay. Nice and extremely helpful staff. Clean room with comfortable beds. Good shower. Cheap minibar. Perfectly fine breakfast, even though the coffee could have been better. Next to cosy restaurants and shops in the Jewish quarter.

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful few days discovering past history on Krakow . We stayed at the Columbus Hotel which was small but warm and comfortable . The young staff were very friendly and helpful always ready to answer any questions asked of them .We would definately stay here when returning to Krakow .

We booked this hotel on our first trip to Krakow using Trip Advisor as a guide and to our delight it was a wise choice.

Check-In, We arrived at about 10am due to an early flight and too our surprise our room was available. Check-In was smooth and the chap on reception was very polite and courteous. We were shown to our room by the concierge who explained everything we needed to know about the room and was also very polite and helpful.

Room, We had room 14 which was at the back of the hotel. Lovely spacious room which was spotless and a big bathroom to boot. Only English channel on the TV was CNN but that did not bother us as we were hardly there.

Breakfast, A good choice to start the day!! Plenty to choose from such as pastries, cheese, yoghurts etc and hot eggs, bacon and sausages Perfect!!!! Friendly waitresses also helped if you required your eggs cooked to order. Can not fault at all.

Summary, This hotel is an excellent choice for Krakow. It is about a mile from the Rynek Glowny Square and is an easy walk (Or tram if you feel lazy). The room prices are very reasonable for the standard that you get and generally Krakow is good value city break. The staff at this hotel are a big part of it's success and we hope that this standard is maintained. Keep up the good work and thanks for a nice stay.

Room Tip: A room at the back of the hotel is probably less noisy.

We hope to return to Krakow and will certainly stay here again. Superb staff, polite, courteous, and keen to do all they could to make your stay enjoyable. It was cold and it was the end of January, yet the hotel was full - which speaks for itself. We heartily endorse all of the positive comments other users have made.

Stayed again at the Columbus Hotel again, absolutely no complaints! Good breakfast and as before staff were all very pleasant and helpful! Don't want to praise too much in case it's overbooked when we decide to go again!

Stayed November 2012

We have just got back from a 3 night stay at the Hotel Columbus and we were not disappointed. The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk from the Main Square. In close proximity to the hotel are lots of lovely restaurants. The tram stops right outside the hotel and gets you everywhere in a matter of minutes.

Rooms are spacious and clean. We stayed at the back of the hotel and it was quiet. Breakfast is really nice.

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone coming to Krakow!

On a seperate note don't do what we did and get the train to Aushwitz. It takes about 2 1/2 hours. Instead get the minibus which is on the lower floor of the bus station. It is much quicker.
