This hotel was a great find. Really good location, short walk to see different places in Krakow. Nice and clean rooms, cosy beds and refrigerator is definitely a plus! Breakfast was great for us, fried eggs and bacon :) Our room was facing the street and if you're a light sleeper you might find it hard to sleep. It didn't... More

We liked the hotel. It is well located, if you don't mind not being at the Rynek. Their service was good, staff was kind and attentive. Their breakfast buffet was small but everything was tasty and the quality was good. A special point for the hotel: beds were very comfortable. Their bed linen was super soft and huge enough to...

We loved this hotel and will definitely stay again. The location was perfect as it was right next to the Jewish Quarter where there are plenty of fine restaurants, not to mention the history.

We enjoyed our stay at Columbus even though we stayed for only one night. Reception was quick and professional, a small elevator took us upstairs to the room.
