This is a multi-story walkup not initially easy to find. It is at the end of a courtyard behind two security doors. I found the decor very dark. The staff was sometimes helpful and sometimes not. Their English skills varied from quite limited to quite good. Their customer service attitude was not entirely friendly--they offered clipped impatient answers when we...

Excellent location, but relatively spartan accommodations. Noise was an issue, some of which was due to the ideal location, some of which was due to the building age and lack of insulation. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff.

Dear Andrew, Thank you for your opinion. Indeed, our place is not a high standard accommodation. That is for sure and we do not claim it is different. However, in my modest opinion 'spartan' is a bit to strong term. We offer rather basic but still reasonable conditions. The building is old but like all bulidings in the Old Town...

This Great guest house is in a great central location. Staff is extremely helpful and courteous..knowledgeable and speak English. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We heard the bells in the distance, but otherwise street noise could not be heard. The rooms were well appointed and a fridge near our room had space for all to share-it...

I booked this place due to its modest price & proximity to the old Market square. It's great for those two reasons. Got the tip from Steves guide book. It's tucked in a quiet square beside the fabulous Market square. A line of taxis parked along our entrance was a definite plus. Security was good. There was a long walkway...

Dear Mr McGaga, I am really said reading your review. So many negative remarks. It is really surprising you have been waiting so long to share these opinions cause the owner of the hotel had his leg broken in October 2016 so it is 6 months already after your stay. I assume from your text that besides the TV set...

Globtroter Hotel, All staff speak English and are very helpful. It is very well priced, centrally located, and with room heating controlled by you, clean, friendly and secure. In the still of the night in this quiet location you can hear the church bell striking the hours and the Trumpeter at St Mary's in Rynek Glowny (Main Square). I have...

This was a great guest house with really helpful staff and the location was perfect. The rooms are large and comfortable and you couldn't want anything else for the price. The rooms all come with a kettle for making tea or coffee. Highly recommended.

Great location just off the main square. Not luxurious but has everything you need. It is clean and quiet. The reception staff are fabulous, always eager to help and spoke perfect English. Great value for money.

The location is really nice; very close to the main square but just enough away that it isn't crowded and noisy. The rooms are quaint and exceptionally clean. If you are looking for something upscale and modern then look somewhere else. The building is older but that is what makes it so charming. The rooms have dark old timber beams...

I was there with my mother, we stayed there for 3 nights. The style is very antique and we liked it a lot, for example there was a Singer sewing machine table. The staff was really nice and helped us a lot. The location is great, right in the old town. If you're looking for a modern hotel this is...
