Great location and lovely manager. Sadly when she left for the weekend her staff were positively rude. From cleaners who shouted down the corridors early in the morning to desk staff who tried to claim that we had booked a tour when we hadn't (They didn't believe us for two days and then never apologised). The hotel is tired and... More

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights. The service was excellent and the location can't be beat — right in the center of the amazing old town. The vibe and furnishings at this hotel, however, are very austere; there is nothing cozy about this place. (I think it is a former monastery.) Our room was like a tomb, with only... More

Used as a base to explore Krakow & visit Auschwitz. Great hotel in heart of the city. Staff courteous, friendly & helpful. Room good with great toiletries! Breakfasts are amazing & although we didn't have dinner there am sure will be the same high standard. Loved Poland & will definitely return to this hotel

If you want a small unique hotel full of character, in a perfect location, this fits the bill. Our room was spacious, decorated with taste and very well appointed. The staff are extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble; booking taxis, arranging trips and general advice. The restaurant is superb. we had a tasting menu which was perfectly matched...

Firstly the location is great. No complaints there. After that I find little to recommend. We stayed in room 108 which straight away is dark and miserable. The curtains are so heavy and badly designed that you can't actually get any light in the room. There's no normal shower, so you have to sit in the bath to do it.... More

We stayed at the junior suite with panoramic view for 4 nights. The location was excellent, the breakfast was the best out of all the places we ate in Poland and the service was perfect.

The mere location of this place is great advantage. However hotel itself is fantastic. Cosy rooms, very elegant and polite service, delicious food. Definitely one of the best hotels in Cracow... If not the best one.

We had a wonderful 3-night stay here, loving the location and atmosphere of the hotel. You are a stone's throw from Wawel, a 5-minute walk to the beautiful main square, and only 20 mins on foot to the earthier area of Kazimierz. Our room was fabulous, generous size, comfortably appointed. My only gripe would be the internal window overlooking the... More
