Reviewed 3 July 2012

The Columbus Hotel in Krakow is a fine small hotel which stands out because of its personalized service and pleasant atmosphere. It is conveniently located for seeing the various sights in Krakow.

Breakfast was good and the price/value relationship is just great. Unless you need 4/5 star amenities, I can recommend this boutique hotel in Krakow.

Room Tip: A room facing the courtyard may be best.

This is a very nice little hotel. A very good 3 star with clean, quiet, air conditioned rooms with clean bathrooms. Breakfast is more than adequate. Good location means a 15 minute walk to the Old Square but a 1 minute walk to the Jewish Quarter with its great selection of restaurants. The staff at this hotel are very friendly and will do anything to help you out. Thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Columbus, chosen predominantly because of the many favourable reviews on here. And how right they are! Firstly, location. Ideal. 15 mins walk to the market square and right in Kazimercz with its many bars and restaurants (which incidentally are aporox 30-50% cheaper than those in the main touristy parts). Service-faultless. Everyone we came into contact with at the Columbus was genuinely interested in us and making sure our stay was a pleasant one - not just in the hotel but in Krakow, generally too. The room was well equipped with a good sized bathroom, tv, free(!) safe, wi fi, air con and mini bar (with free mineral water). Complimentary soaps and gels in the bathroom replenished daily. We asked for and received a quiet room at the back of the hotel (road at front fairly noisy with traffic) which had a balcony too. Would have rated the room 5 stars if it had more than just CNN in English. Breakfast. Plentiful - juices, fruits, yoghurts, cheese, cold meats and scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon as the hot options. All buffet except for boiled and fried eggs cooked to order. Can't fault anything about our stay at the Columbus and we will return and stay here without question as Krakow is such a great place.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Columbus. You really couldn't be located better in Krakow, situated as it is just 10 minutes or so walk from the centre and on the edge of the Jewish Quarter. The triple room was excellent (although one bed was a little on the small side for an adult), the staff very friendly and helpful, and the buffet breakfast difficult to better... all this and at a very good price too. I'll certainly be back!!

If you just want to stay in a hotel in comfort, in a good location and a breakfast than you'd genuinely be stupid to go anywhere else. It's well kitted out with WiFi, a computer if you need it, air conditioning in the summer (and you'll need it) and it's perfectly located. About fifteen minutes from the market square and right beside the Jewish quarter. Very helpful staff and a great breakfast.
Extremely good value for what you get, then again everything in Poland is good value. GO TO KRAKOW! NOT SPAIN OR FRANCE!
