Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What an awesome hotel! Location was ideally situated in the middle of Old Town, so that it was almost an equidistant walk to either Wawel Castle or in the opposite direction to the Cloth Market/Old Square/city walls. Everything was easily accessible on foot. The hotel itself had numerous wall-painted collages and scenes, along with hotel history. Very interesting and well done. Our room was adequate size with a very nice bathroom with walk-in shower. My only comment would be that the platform bed was way too low to the ground and there were only benches in the room - no chairs with backs. When you are a senior - albeit a young one - the back support of a chair and not having to sit so low to the floor on the bed are necessary room accessories. The bed was comfortable and the pillows also. Since we were there during the off season, the hotel was quiet. Staff was extremely helpful and kind. An adjoining restaurant - the Black Duck - provided the buffet breakfast for guests. If I ever return to Krakow, I will most definitely stay here again.

Krakow is a very nice city in Poland and this hotel has a great location. The reception staff is not very helpful pretending they are always busy. I sent them email with some documents to print but no one did. I got a room for disabled people which I was not satisfied with.

Spent four nights in at Hotel Wawel which was excellent in every way. Location is a short walk from all of the main attractions in Krakow, the castle, Jewish Quarter, Main Square in Old Town but still blissfully quiet. Tons of restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Only took us a 25min walk to and from the train station to get the airport shuttle. Room was spacious and super clean. Bathroom was also modern and very clean. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room but a free coffee/tea/hot chocolate machine on the first floor which was even better, delicious coffee. The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They were attentive and assisted us in booking a couple of day excursions with hotel pick-up. Breakfast was wonderful with pretty much anything you could want, and at convenient times for all (7-10). Would stay here again without any hesitation in the future.

I stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate New Year's Eve in Krakow. The hotel is perfectly located right in the city center but the street is very quiet at the same time. I chose a single room but got an upgrade for a bigger room for free which was a very nice gesture from the hotel staff. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful, they booked a taxi for me as I was leaving very early on my last day. The room was crystal clean and nicely decorated, with 2 chairs, a TV, a desk and a small fridge. The bathroom was pretty big with a spacious shower. The breakfast was very good - hot drinks, juices, eggs, sausages, bread, vegetables. I received a breakfast box on my last day because I was leaving before breakfast time. To sum up, this hotel is a real gem, ams I'd stay here again anytime.

Overall nice stay. Good location in old town. Room was pretty quiet. Breakfast was a very nice variety. Liked the ironing room. Guest access to coffee machine was nice. Had hotel access to a really good restaurant- Black Duck. Only two cons- Drapes were not blackout, allowed way too much light in room. No charging ports for phones.

Stunning Hotel just far enough from the main pedestrian walkways. Really quiet but within a couple of minutes away from the popular Square . Check in was faultless and the Member of staff showed us a map of the local area without being asked. All staff during our 3 night stay were superb and very pleasant. Breakfast served from 7am was excellent and they offer a boxed breakfast if your out early for the day. The Breakfast room turns into the Black Duck restaurant at night which booking is required as it’s very busy. Only slight downside of the Hotel is they do not have a bar where you can just go for a drink but there’s a lovely place just across the road. Rooms are large although the bed is very low . No tea / coffee in the room but there is a machine in the Orangery. It’s a 20 minute walk from the Train station which we found out on the first day. On our last day the Hotel organised a taxi for us with a very reasonable cost of £42 for a minibus for 7 people. Great Hotel , great staff, great location.

There's much to like about this hotel. The location is a quiet side street, easily accessible to the main areas to visit. The staff, helpful and approachable, and an extensive choice of continental breakfast options. But. My word, the mattress. There's firm and there's hard. And the mattress was solid.A well sprung, quality mattress , a decent pillow and a comfy chair to sink into would have made this a perfect stay for me. But, if dropping off to sleep is not an issue for you, this is charming hotel to stay at.

Great location as advised by other travellers. Stayed here about 8 years ago so knew it was the place to stay. Breakfast had enough options and rooms were a good size, mattress was a little hard but other than that would return and def recommend.

The hotel is in a brilliant location! It is located in the old town of Krakow but just off one of the main busy streets meaning you are not disturbed by any of the hustle and bustle of all the foot traffic through the old town. The room was adequate and had everything we needed, with a very good powerful shower. The only criticism we would have of the room (and the corridors) is the carpet could do with replacing or at the very least a deep clean. The breakfast was very standard. The only hot food provided was scrambled eggs, fried eggs and then sausages (the type of sausage did change each day). The rest of breakfast included salad items, cheese, cold meats, fruit, cereals, cakes/pastries and bread.

The location is superb for the old town, sitting between the central square and the castle. The place was very clean and had all the comforts you require. The was an orangery on our floor with free hot beverages, rather than supplies in the room. A little irritating that you had to log into the wifi each day and the last day it didn’t work. Breakfast was the traditional basic Polish buffet, fine for what it is. The hotel arranged tax transfer didn’t turn up! I rang the hotel and they advised me to pick up a taxi outside and they would refund any excess, which wasn’t necessary. Staff were all very pleasant and polite.
