This is a modest little hotel in the lively Kazimierz district of Krakow. More like a French "pension" than a conventional hotel. All that was missing was a nosey "consierge"!
Likes: Good-sized, simply furnished rooms (with widescreen TV) supplied with crockery, cutlery and kettle. Piping hot water in bathroom (at all hours). Very friendly, youthful staff (one of them even carried our suitcase up a flight of stairs for us). Two small restaurants attached - a Chinese/Vietnamese one ("Dong-A") and a Polish one ("Black Cauldron"). Generous portions, excellent prices and wide menu selections in both. Buffet breakfast included. Lovely courtyard at rear for smokers and for dining al-fresco. We were given our own front door key (real keys too, not nasty keycards!) so didn't have to wait for any night porters! Free Wi-Fi. City Tax was included in overall price so didn't have to break any notes.
Dislikes: No fridge in room or any tea/coffee (but staff did supply these upon request). Breakfast buffet was limited and serving area was really cramped. No English language channels on TV. No lift/elevator. Rooms were only serviced "upon request". Only one handtowel and two bathtowels provided for 7 night stay.
However, at £20 per person per night, it probably works out cheaper than some hostels!More
