I'm giving this a very low score. 9 zloty for a bare room a few photos with little or no information. There are some extraordinary places to visit in Krakow for about the same cost but this is not one of them.

Wandering around the wonderful Jewish Quarter ( kazimierz District ) there is so much history on every corner and in my opinion the High Synagogue is probably one of the most historically and famous landmarks in Kazimierz. The building oozes history,it's been around since 1556...More

Walking around the very interesting Kazimierz District ( Jewish Quarter) of Krakow you will see some really superb buildings that although a tad dilapidated still look fantastic,the whole area has a faded elegance about it and the High Synogogue is a perfect example. Although no...More
