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.

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...

This place is fantastic value for money, this was my third visit and I plan to return! It is situated in a quiet courtyard just minutes from the main square and is full of old world charm. Although the Globtroter does not serve food this is not a problem as there is an abundance of fabulous restaurants on it's doorstep....

We arrived at the airport and we were collected by a driver laid on by the guesthouse as arranged who was extremely friendly and helpful. On arrival it was very straight forward which was good as we had 2 young kids that were extremely tired having arrived in after midnight. The gentleman behind the desk was very helpful and friendly....
