Kossak is a nice hotel, but we left it with a feeling that it is a bit over-rated. We had a good stay, but I cannot rate it as excellent.
We booked "Double or Twin Room" with expectation that we'd get a double bed (we're a married couple). Unfortunately upon check-in we found that only twin bed was available. The beds were too soft for our taste and not really comfortable for a couple. The black window curtains were not long enough, the room was full of light in the morning. Air conditioning was making strange noises when turned on, but we didn't really need it. The TV had a very limited set of English-language channels, from what I remember just BBC News and Russia Today. Otherwise we were happy with the room, it was clean and looked good.
The hotel has a nice cafe on the top floor. We wanted to stay in this cafe to see the annual Krakow Dragon show on Wisla river in the evening of June 2nd. Alas, entire cafe was booked for a wedding and out of reach for people who stayed at the hotel. We were disappointed.
The breakfast had a good selection of meals. The location of hotel is convenient, 5 minute walk to Wawel castle and 10 minutes to Old Town. The hotel staff spoke good English, but in general we didn't have a problem finding English speakers during our stay in Krakow.
Kossak hotel seems to be promoting itself quite actively over the Internet. We found the "TripAdvisor 2012 WINNER" plaque at the Reception amusing, since 2012 is far from finished. The photograph is attached to our review.
Overall - Kossak is a good hotel. Will we return there on our next visit? We will check our options.
