“Fantastic cultural experience”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We chose this hotel to stay in the heart of the Jewish quarter of Krakow, and are we glad we did! If you're looking for all "mod-cons" this hotel is not for you. If you want history, culture, authenticity, period furnishings & a wonderful Jewish meal & music evening then book today! The staff were efficient if not particularly forth-coming. Breakfast every morning was excellent with plenty of fresh fruit, breads, cheeses, eggs cooked to order & freshly made coffee! Location excellent, right at the start of Kazimierz (the Jewish quarter), close to the river but also only a 10 - 15 minute walk to the heart of Krakow. Not the highest of standard / cleanliness etc, but certainly memorable & absolutely charming.

Curiosity, not other reviews, made me stay here. Very pleased I did. Late 19th Century feel to the place and an interior design/elegance to match. Yes it does smell a little musty...but it is a very old building....something that people need to take into account. Room was cleaned every day and the staff were all very helpful. The breakfast, for a cold-buffet, was excellent. Never before have I finished such an early-morning meal with carrot cake!!! Wi-Fi connection in the city, as a whole, was unreliable...not strictly the fault of the hotel. Good value for money and would stay here again on the next occasion I am feeling nostalgic!

A small lovely hotel. Every room and stair was like a museum. We got a big room. Actually it was two rooms. Toilet and shower in the hall, but it was ours personally, so it wasnt any big deal. The room was clean and every day we got new towels and to bottles of water.

The breakfast was homemade and very tempting. Sweet morells, raspberrys, homemade bread, scrambeled eggs, tea, coffe, juice, cheese, several types of jam. Sitting in that lovely diner room, was an experience of its own. The staff wasnt very good in English, but very kind, smiling and helpful.

The hotel is located i The Jewish part of Krakow, which I altso found the most cosy and artistic part of Krakow. Many cool cafes and restaurants. Very cheap.

We ate in the restaurant one night and listended to Kleizmer music. It was lovely and food was delicious.

The hotel was so cheap I cant believe it. Will definetly go back!

Great atmosphere, for the price excellent, pillows are bit small though and some rooms have separate bathrooms (I guess, because of old-building). But despite these small things, great hotel in the hearth of Jewish Krakow area... Highly recommend

We chose this place based on TripAdvisor reviews, and couldn't have been happier. Enter the dim main hallway and you are in another century. Hand-crocheted doilies, runners and tablecloths everywhere; vases of fresh flowers; old prints, maps and photos on the walls. We had a huge room with a queen bed, with an adjoining smaller room with two twin beds that seemed to be "under the attic" (#15). Very ample breakfast (including a scrumptious apple cake). Located in the Kazimierz neighborhood with lots of restaurants and shops nearby, and the stop for several trams and buses half a block away. The only downer was that we couldn't get a reservation for dinner -- all 3 dining areas were fully booked. That alone is a reason to go back!

This is a hotel for people who would love to go back in time. A very romantic hotel with a lot of charm en not too luxurous. Our room was very big, with old details, clean towels every day. The staff was really friendly. The breakfast was very nice. 2-3 choices of bread, cheese / meat, yogurt, juice, fruit, cake, egg, some they made srambled egg for oss and the fresh made espresso coffee made it all complete. The hotel is in the midle of Kazimierz, with a lot of restaurants and terrasses nearby. The distance to the city center is only a 10 minutes walk or you can take a tram or taxi. Very good value!

We arrived the hotel rather late on a sunday evening. Due to the exitment we felt when we discoverd the location, my husband managed to forget his bag with his passport, and whatnot, in the taxi. The great staff at the hotel managed to get it back to us, even though we didn't even know the name on the comapny we had used. And they gave us and vodka on the house, feeling sorry for us. That is really good service! The room was spacious. The bathroom had what we needed, though a hairdryer would have been nice. The breakfast was really good. We even got scrambeld eggs made on request. And it was served untill 11. perfect when you consider the nightlife in Kazimierz. This is not a hotell for those who are looking for regular hotel types. It is all about Kazimierz and Klezmer music. We really loved it, and would for sure stay here again for a trip to wonderfull Krakow. On the downside... They really shold consider softer madrasses.... And we stayd in a room facing a busy street. But.. It IS a big city.
