The hotel could not be better placed; by the Vistula river, below the Wawel Castle, less than 15 min walk from the bustling town square, but itself out of traffic. It is not a luxury hotel, but it has a straight forward good standard. It is fairly new (2006), clean and attractive. Good size rooms, good restaurant (at least the...

How this is only a 3 star hotel is beyond belief. 4 guys on a lads break stayed 4 nights in this hotel in April 2014. The service was superb and the standard of cleanliness exceptional. We stayed on a B & B basis and breakfast was very good with good choice of cereal, hot and cold food and fruit...

Four night stay in this lovely hotel, Perfect location overlooking the river and castle and a ten minute walk from the main square. Ideal spot for a early morning walk or jog as there are paths on both sides of the river heading off in both directions and it is also next to the park which circles the old town.The...

This was a great little find. The rooms were spotless, and adequate in size, the shower lovely and powerful. Superb location to explore from, and although the trams are great, anywhere on this side of the river is within a walk even Kazimerez although allow time for a longer gentle stroll. The attached restaurant/bar is so easy to relax into...

The hotel has an excellent location, fifty yards from the river Vistula walkway, below the castle walls and a ten minute walk from the old town main square, the Rynek Glowny. Rooms were clean and well up to the standard expected of the hotel's price category. Rooms at the side of the building and not overlooking the river were quiet...

We stayed here for two nights and were very pleased with the hotel. It is located right next to the castle - indeed I gather the name translates as "under the castle" - and beside the river. The view from our rooms was of the river and the castle foothill. There is a rooftop bar and terrace which is a...

We stayed here a couple of days ago with friends for 3 nights. It was everything we could have wanted- certainly an ideal location by the river, just a couple of minutes stroll from the castle area, 10 from the Market Square, and 15 from the Jewish Quarter- all flat. It was nice and quite (admittedly we were out of...

I was in Kracow to work rather than as a tourist and this small hotel was perfect. It was busy but also quiet and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It is also in the best possible location right next to the castle and easy walking straight in to the old town and along the Vistula. I will certainly...

This hotel is situated opposite Wawelem Castle, and by the river.Its a 5 minute walk to the market square. The double room was small but big enough for the 2 of us, with adequate storage, and with a functional bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean!! The buffet breakfast was really good, with something for everyone. The staff were very helpful. We...

We stayed there just for one night but we were able to enjoy a nice, clean, really warm room. It wasn't luxurious but it was more than enough. On the other hand, the breakfast was great. Different kinds of bread, cheese, cold cuts, yoghurt, some fruit, cakes and the view of the river was simply awesome and the wifi connection...
