We chose this hotel after reading other guests comments on Trip Advisor and we were not let down. It is only a five minute walk to the Old Town and a ten minute walk to the Castle Area.
The hotel has recently opened so everything is new and clean. The hotel is on a fairly busy road but all rooms overlook the courtyard at the back so it is very quiet and we slept very well. The room (33) was quite large with twin beds, free safe, television, radio alarm clock, free internet Wi-Fi access and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space for storage. There was a table and two chairs in the room. Two bottles of water are left in the room each day and there is a kettle with tea, coffee, sugar and creamer which is replenished every day. The beds were comfortable but could do with bigger pillows.
The bathroom was a good size, complimentary shampoo and shower cream, hairdryer and a powerful shower. The towels were nice and thick and changed every day even though we left them on the towel rail.
Breakfast was from 7 to 10.30 and there was lots of choice so nobody should go hungry. There is a restaurant and a bar at the hotel which we did not use so cannot comment on them.
The staff (cleaners and reception) were all very polite and helpful, maps are provided and tours can be booked at reception if required. All the staff spoke very good English.
There is a computer near reception for guest's use if required.
There is a health salon in the hotel offering various massages and body wraps but we did not use it so cannot comment except to say that their prices seemed very reasonable for the services offered.
We would recommend this hotel as it is reasonably priced, very close to the centre of town and extremely quiet. We hope to go back to Krakow next May or June and will definately book this hotel as long as there is availability.
Congratulations to all the staff for making our stay as comfortable and happy as they could.
