Reviewed 17 August 2014

Stayed here with my girlfriend and parents for 5 nights. We both had very comfortable, clean rooms, with lovely views towards the castle. Staff were very helpful and attentive, happily organising any day trips or tours we wished to undertake on our behalf. 10 minute walk into the heart of krakow. Breakfast was also very good, with a wide selection to suit all tastes. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear look towards the castle, and some benefit from balconies.

Stayed here in summer 2014 and enjoyed the hotel, rooms were clean, and staff very helpful! Breakfast otherwise OK but seating was really crammed, and the food selection was not overwhelming. Parking proved to be quite difficult with a fairly large-ish sedan. Also uneven ground in the parking lot made me fall over, so watch your step.

We stayed for 3 nights very recently. Hotel location is good, 5 min walk to river side and green area. Very quiet place, good value and breakfast is very big & abundant. Staff speak very good english and were very helpful, would stay here again... Wifi is also free and works everywhere.

We visited Benefis Hotel for a five day city trip to Krakow. We got to the hotel a little early before the check-in, but we were told that our rooms were all ready. We stayed at the double room studio and the room was lovely and spacious. Everything was cleaned perfectly in the room on arrival and on the following days. The complimentary water bottles in the room were a nice touch and replaced daily. The complimentary wifi connection also worked very well. A few things that we found missing in the hotel were air conditioning in the room (we had great hot weather) and a safe.
The breakfast was very good for a small hotel and there was plenty of choice from warm and cold foods. We found the coffee at breakfast to be awfully weak and tasteless, so we grabbed coffee elsewhere after breakfast. We also had dinner one evening at the hotel. I ordered a pasta dish, which unfortunately was a bit dry. However, the pierogi that our friends ordered was very good and tasty. The food was as cheap as eating out in the city, but the wine was a bit more expensive.
Location wise the hotel is at a good distance to most of the attractions. The walk to the Wavel castle took us about 15 min as you need to cross the bridge to the other side of the city. A walk to Stare Miasto (old town) was about 20 min. We didn't see many restaurants right next to the hotel, but there was a small bakery and convenience store nearby.
The service at the hotel was superb at all times. We had a trip booked by them to the Salt Mine, which was a nice experience, but at tourist prices. On the last day as we were waiting for the taxi to the airport we were also given complimentary water bottles by the staff, which was nice on the hot day. The check-out (and in) were all very smooth and quick. A small charge needs to be paid on the check-out for the city tax.

Room Tip: Studios provide a bit more room with the separate lounge, but the normal double rooms were also very...

We had a superb experience at Hotel Benefis. The staff were very helpful and welcoming when we arrived quite late the first night. The next morning we had asked them to organise 3 different things at the same time : trip to Auschwitz, Chopin Concert and minibus to the airport and they went about their task in record time.
The room was quite spacioius, clean and very comfortable. The restaurant was very amenable, especially when we wanted our dinner upstairs in the room to watch a World Cup semi-final. As well as the food being delicious! We really enjoyed our stay, especially as the hotel was very reasonably-priced, and was walking distance from the centre of Krakow. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and we have travelled a lot.

Room Tip: Try and ask for a room on the back.

Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Large rooms with seperate seating area. We had a view over the castle. Spacious bathroom with complimentary toiletries. Parking- not cheap but safe. Free wi fi. Breakfast very good selection and beautifully presented. Only downside is the absence of coffee making facilities in room and no safety deposit.
