Just got home from a four day stint in Krakow. This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel having previously stayed at the Senaki just down the road.
On entering the reception area we found an absolute pearl, very smart and well decorated. Our rooms were ready and we had numbers 302 and 303 - both doubles. The rooms were decorated very nicely and very clean. On the minus side, we were disappointed the were no tea and coffee making facilities however we did know this before we arrived. The beds were comfortable but typically of Poland, the duvets were not quit fitting of the bed and the pillows very small and too soft. again, this is nothing new as we had experienced this elsewhere. These minuses were very tiny in relation to the overall ambience of the hotel. the reception staff were very accommodating especially Alicija who booked us taxis, gave advice on where to go, and even took the trouble to to suggest which room we may like next Autumn when we will return.
A tip, if you want a bigger room, choose a twin rather than a double as they have more room, having said that the room was not small. In the hotel they have a wellness centre which was really good, bookable privately for 10 english pounds per half hour (40 zl) and highly recommended after a long day sightseeing.
The breakfast was well presented and the staff very helpful providing english food if required, so again no complaints.
So overall, this hotel should be four star not three, maybe tea and coffee facilities may just tip the balance. It really is a lovely hotel in a lovely spot, quiet but exceptionally close the the centre. There is no noise at night and you get a very relaxing stay. Well done to all the staff we look forward to October 2012!
