we have stayed at the hotel columbus three times.each time we still love it.the staff very friendly and helpful.the rooms are quite spacious and very clean,i do recommend though asking for a room in the back of the hotel,the front can be a bit noisy once morning starts.the breakfast is very good and plentiful,the girls that helpout at breakfast are very efficient always making sure the food is plentiful,there is no need to ask for anything,because they have already brought it out.the hotel is in the jewish section of krakow,which is in itself very interesting.the trolley stop is about one block or less from hotel which makes it very conveniant,a good 15min walk to center or where the christmas markest are held,but there are two ways of walking there and both are pleasant walks not far at all.we love this hotel

Room Tip: ask for a room in the back ,the front rooms can be a bit noisy once morning starts

Columbus hotel was very good. Only the pillows could be improved: I thought they were very very soft. Room was clean, very nice, breakfast was good, and in front of the hotel stops a tram, which is very easy to take to Wawel castle etc etc.
I would definitely choose this hotel again if I would go to Krakau again.

This was a very modern hotel in an otherwise not so modern part of town. Rooms felt spacious for Europe and quite luxurious for the price we paid. Their breakfast was quite good (cooked eggs, bacon, bread, yogurt, etc). The staff was very kind to answer our tourist questions. All in all, a great hotel, especially for the price!

The Hotel Columbus proved to be an excellent place to stay. We were welcomed very nicely when we arrived, we were shown to a spotless room and the staff could not have been more helpful. The breakfasts were very good - It was a buffet but there was lots of choice with typical Polish breakfast i.e lots of cooked meats, cheeses, cereals, bacon and eggs etc tea and coffee. Our room was on the 3rd floor but there was a lift. The front rooms may possibly have been subject to tram and traffic noise but ours was at the rear and was nice and quiet. There was free wi-fi in the room which worked perfectly. We visited in October - the weather was cold but not icy and the hotel heating worked fine. The hotel was a little way from the centre, and the old city, but my wife and I like walking - it took around 20 minutes to stroll there. If you don't want to walk there is a tram stop right outside the hotel. It was quite near to the castle which is well worth a visit and also close to Kazimiercz district with lots of bars, restaurants and interesting places to see. I would also recommend Krakow as a destination as the prices of most things i.e restaurants and cafes are very reasonable. We never paid more than £30.00 for a meal for 2 with wine. After the Eurozone it is a gift.
All in all we had a very enjoyable week in Krakow and would recommend it to anyone who wanted somewhere a bit different.

Room Tip: We had a room at the rear of the hotel which was nice and quiet. I would expect the front facing roo...
