“Mature Family Break at Globus”
Reviewed 29 September 2011

We booked a party of five into two rooms for three nights, whilst we did the touristy things around the city. The rooms were exactly as expected, very clean, large and equipped with TV, and tea/coffee facilities. One of the rooms 305 was air conditioned other, 201 was not, but not a problem at this time of year. The girls at the front desk (staff were always more than helpful, smiling, welcoming) were very helpful when asked for milk and other items to replenish the stock in the room. The Hotel has very little communal area, but the bedrooms were big enough so that we could all get round to enjoy Pizzas & drinks. The trams operate on a very busy intersection and with all the other traffic, be prepared to either take the alcohol or earplugs, even though good double glazing on all windows. Beds and bedding was 100%.Location is ideal, trams go in several directions zl 2.80 for 30 mins, (we took the tram to walk around Plazow camp area, then walked back) tickets either from the stops, some machines on the trams & buses, and we understand drivers sometimes take money if no machines onboard (change is given by the machines and they can produce multiple tickets in one cash transaction). 15 mins walk to the main square, 20 mins to main station, about 35 mins when we went to Schindlers museum and then walked around the Ghetto area. Location for all this walking was brilliant. Breakfast was a fairly good array with something to suit everyone (seen better, seen a lot worse), but for the money the hotel was really good value, and would have no issues about recommending my friends to go there (the rumbling trams add atmosphere, but not solitude). We did all the trips independantly with no regrets. Wieliczka Salt Mine was a wonderful trip, travel there by public MIni Bus, and return by normal bus. Auschwitz day - travel was by train, which went at snails pace most of the time (two hour journey back), then 30 mins walk to the camp from the station at Oswiecem. Whole experience was well worth the visit, cheaper than we had expected, with restaurants being very good value compared to UK.

Eventually found this address on the corner (next to Allianz bank) Globus sign is on the glass door.

Good standard and clean, kettle, tea, bottled water in the room (don't drink the tap water) TV, free shampoo/soap daily, shower head holder was loose though, we forgot to report this ! No coffee and milk, just ask reception and they'll bring it up for you, free internet/wi-fi but connection at the front of the building is poor/non existent, staff were helpful.

Breakfast was adequate, cold ham, chicken, sliced bread, cottage cheese, cereals, fruit coffee, orange/apple juice etc.

Strange smell of cooking cabbage outside window, trams audible despite UPVC windows closed, ground rumbled each time one passed too, not that bad though once you climatised.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the rear. Helpful breakfast staff will let you take some b'fast up to the room...

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend for three nights.

The Perks: The hotel was generally clean. The bathroom was modern and there was enough room for three adults and a child under 7 to sleep. There was free bottled water supplied in the room which was nice. The customer service was excellent. All of our questions were answered.

Drawbacks: I was travelling with my 60+ year old mother. She did NOT appreciate that there was not an elevator in this hotel. We had to carry up bags up to the room and walk up to our room every time we returned. We were also staying in the hotel in August when the temperature was very warm. This hotel has no air conditioning. It could be noisy in the evening, as this hotel is located at a busy intersection. I didn't mind because I'm used to noise in the evening, but my mother, who is a light sleeper, did not sleep well during our entire trip. The breakfast for the hotel was very average. I wish there had been more options. The room was generally clean, but there was a very large stain on one of the curtains in our room. The curtains are white, but there was a stain that could have possibly been blood(!) on it. At least it was the color of dried blood. I don't know how a maid could miss it to be honest!

Would I stay here again? Maybe. If it were in the summer? No.

We stayed here for two nights in May whilst it was lovely and hot. The hotel is located smack bang between the jewish quarter and the square with the tram stop virtually outside your door which will take you all over the city. It was a 10 minute walk to the square and a 10 minute walk in the other direction to the jewish quarter so no need for taxis. There was a bank machine right outside the hotel and a little shop just around the corner so you could buy pop snacks etc. The room was very clean, quiet and spacious although all we really did was sleep there. Although we did not organise any tours with them they were always very helpful and saw lots of people asking them to organise trips. The breakfast in the morning was great, coffee, juice, meats cheese, yoghurts fruit etc - just what you need after a hard night out to set you up for the day. If I visited Krakow again I would most definately stay at this hotel. It was a bargain for the price too only 79 euros a night.

My boyf and I stayed here for 5 nights and found the place amazing value. The room was huge with a sofa, a small day bed (perfect for chilling on when back in from a long days sightseeing) and a huge (really comfy) double and a really nice modern bathroom. The breakfast had a nice selection and the staff were very helpful. The only downside was that our room was at the front of the building and the road outside was very busy and the noise from the cars and trams was a little loud - but to be fair this wouldnt put me off staying here again as on City Breaks we tend not to be in the room too much anyway really. Also the taxi that we booked to make our way to the airport from the hotel was great value to, we had been worried after hearing about taxi drivers in Krakow charging exhorbitant rates but this one was great and got two very hung-over travelers to the airport in no time at all.
The hotel is also in a great location for the major sites and nightlife.

Room Tip: Ask for the back of the hotel

The hotel lived up to our expectations. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and were able to arrange transport to and from the airport as well as excursions with pick-up at the hotel. No really negative points but just one or two minor observations. Whilst the hotel is only 15 minutes walk from the Market Square there aren't many restaurants nearby (nearest is about 10 minutes walk) so if it's raining it could be a problem. Curtains in the room were very thin so the early morning light shone through. May be some capsules of milk would be a good idea although there are supermarkets nearby.
On two occasions we had no hot water but the staff dealt with the problem quickly.
