“Perfect hotel in Krakow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2011

Great location by the river, easy to walk everywhere, a great rooftop cafe, quality and well-trained staff, comfortable rooms, etc. Nothing to complain about here and it's an easy ride back and forth to the airport. Tons to do in Krakow, both in the city and day trips out. We loved being right on the river and liked too not being in the tourist center, it was easy enough to walk there when we wanted.

Hotel Kossak is great hotel, perfectly located for easy stroll to main square and the major tour operators pick up just across the road. Roof top cafe/restaurant has lovely view of the castle and the river, lovely sight both in the sunshine and at night.
Food in hotel kossak was lovely staff very nice and helpful with great english. Trams just outside for easy access. The room was spotless, good size bathroom.
The hotel was very quite at night time.

My husband and I have just returned after a visit to Krakow. We stayed at the Kossak and found it to have been a brilliant choice. The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean. (an iron would be useful though) The staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast buffet is probably the best you will find anywhere...and the food in the restaurant is first class. It is perfectly situated for all local attractions and sits right on the river. It is also convenient for trips to Auschwitz and Schindlers factory museum. Oh, and dont miss having a coffee on the rooftop cafe....beautiful coffee...beautiful views. all in all...a 5 star visit and we will be back.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the castle and river...beautiful

Just back from hotel Kossak
We liked the location and view from the hotel, the beds are very comfortable for a short time and the rooms spotless, we really liked the roof top terrace restaurant with its view of the castle and the river, the food on the terrace was superb and the staff were very pleasant.
Unlike the roof terrace, the breakfast in the downstairs restaurant was not very nice, if you dined at 9am ish , the scrambled egg was a liquid, which the staff occasionally stirred,, the chopped sausage was cold and the coffee urn wasnt replenished when empty. there is a free extra menu but no one tells you of this.
The bedrooms are a bit on the small side although comfortable, and there is a plastic backed protecter on the beds, this in turn wakes you up perspiring through the night, the shower head is situated in a poor position, you have to be careful not to flood the bathroom when in use, the towels are of a poor quality and very thin,also the bottled water in the room is of the gas type which no one appears to drink, yet they do have still water, which they dont leave, obviously they save money this way because no one drinks the gas one.
We regard this hotel as a good 3 star hotel, I don’t know how they came by there 4 stars, hotel Jazz (barcelona) and The Jurys inn (Prague) are better 3 star hotels
We booked Bobs taxi for transfers and tours he was excellent, see separate review

Room Tip: email room with view of castle prior to arrival

Great stay for 5 nights here. Good sized bed with a great view of the castle. Service from the front desk was excellent as my husband received a birthday cake during his stay.

Self service breakfast was good with lots of choice. It would have been nice to have been offered something from the extra menu by the waitresses. Just felt their attention at breakfast was a little lacking. By the end of 5 breakfasts a change of CD would have been good as we heard the same tracks over and over again. These are small niggles that didn't detract from my overall experience

Hotel Kossak is tremendous value for money. I would recommend it to absolutely anyone.

An excellent honest 4 star hotel. Spotlessly clean, helpful staff who spoke English, and very comfortable. Ask for a room that looks out towards the castle. We were given one and the view was amazing. Breakfast very good. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for room with castle view.
