4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

My only negative coffee and tea machine. On first floor, our room on second floor. Up and down stairs or lift . Would make a big difference to have in room kettle . There is a fridge. At the very least another machine on second floor.

The hotel is ideally situated in a quiet road, but only a few minutes walk from the main square. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a separate sitting area. No kettle in the room, but free hot drinks and water were available. There was a fridge and safe in the room. 3 bottles of water are provided and replenished daily free of charge. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. When we checked in to the hotel the receptionist checked our passports and remarked that it would be my wife’s birthday during our stay. When we returned to our room following a trip to Auschwitz on my wife’s birthday, we were greeted with a note wishing her a happy birthday, a bottle of Prosecco, 2 glasses and chocolate. A great gesture by a great hotel. We will definitely return.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Fantastic find, great location, spacious room if a little dated but to be honest this was all part of the charm. Breakfast was included and filling, hosted in the black duck restaurant (on site) which I would highly recommend for dinner. The only thing that stopped me giving excellent was although there was an orangery where you could get tea and coffee this was from a machine, because I only drink black tea no sugar this was no good to me, so would have preferred kettle in room with selection of tea. The staff were friendly and helpful booking our trips so that we did not have to worry, we would definitely come back here and recommend to friends or family coming to visit Kraków.
