I really enjoyed my stay at Queen's Boutique. The hotel itself is gorgeous and very well priced, especially given the quality. It's really beautifully done out in a modern boutique style. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was huge! Bigger than my flat in London, and really comfortable and stylishly decorated. I had a bite to eat at the bar/restaurant downstairs and the food was delicious (smoked goose salad with ricotta and strawberries and a caipirihna) and it was very well priced at around £10 equiv.
Not knowing Krakow, when I first arrived I had expected to be closer to the old town (I got a taxi from the train station as it's probably a 30 minute walk). But the location actually turned out to be ideal. It's just outside the South wall of the old town and is about 5 minutes from the Castle. The hotel sits between the old town and the Jewish district, so it's ideal for sightseeing as you're right between the two. And actually, walking into the old town took no time at all - you're just 5 minutes away, and in the central square within 10 minutes or so. In some ways it's a bit of a relief to be able to escape from the crush of tourists.
I didn't have time to try the spa facilities, but am sure they would be great.
It is situated on a main road, but I wasn't bothered by the noise. My only slight negative was that the hotel was incredibly quite during my stay, so a little lacking in atmosphere. But I'd rather than than being surrounded by the hordes of stag dos, so I'll take it!
I'd definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again myself.
