Our recent stay at the Hotel Columbus was terrific. This was our first trip to central Europe and Poland, though we had been to western and southern Europe many times. We really enjoyed the mix of European heritage in the city, and the different looks presented by the architecture and governance of more recent times. As such, we were attracted to the Columbus for the location, in the Kazimierz, and away from, but walking distance to the central square and attractions. We had a room in the back, and it was warm and comfortable, with a small balcony overlooking a square of former Eastern Bloc flats. We found this to be quite cool, and a fitting mix of architecture which really captured the spirit of history in this part of the world. The room was larger than we had found in most other parts of Europe, and well equipped. Wifi was available too. We were especially impressed by the breakfast, which included a great variety of choice, and featured many local receipes also. The staff was extremely helpful, very kind and accommodating. They arranged a tour for us, and also helped us out with the local bus system for a day trip to the Wieliczka Salt Mine. Their restaurant recommendations were great also. They seemed to really care that we were having a great time. We found the location to be perfect for us too, as the Kazimierz was right behind us, and we could find everything within a few blocks. The area is comfortable, and is not what someone would call touristy, but quaint and somewhat local. Where we could enjoy the day in the city square and the castle, we were only a 10 minute walk back to the Columbus and 5 minutes from an evening at some of our favorite pubs. We felt this hotel was a great choice because of the location, but an even better choice for the helpful staff, and the warm comfort of the hotel.
