This is my second stay at the Venetian House. My first was two years ago with my brother; I had such a good experience that I returned, this time with my wife and two daughters. We stayed for four nights in July 2014.
The location is spectacular - right on the main square of Kraków, with many sights and amenities just steps away. Our favorite Kraków restaurant, Wierzynek, is meters away from the front door of the hotel. The Sukiennice and St. Mary's Church (among many other historic spots) are steps away.
Despite the proximity to the tumult of the square, the rooms are not at all noisy (with windows closed and climate control on). Having a kitchenette - fully stocked with silverware, pans, etc. - is a great way to save a bit on meals. We stayed in room #12, which has a separate bedroom (for my wife and me - our daughters slept on a fold-out couch in the living room). Because it's on the top floor, #12 has skylights in the bedroom (these can be opened for fresh air; shades can be deployed on hot days); plus, it's conveniently located next to the office, where the washing machines are. The staff were friendly and responsive to our requests.
The only downside is that parking is about 1 km away (a pain with luggage), but our workaround was to (a) park in nearby public parking when dropping off luggage, and (b) parking on the square when checking out (driving on the square is allowed before 10 a.m.)
We will definitely return the next time we are in Kraków.
