My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for two nights in February . The location is right in the middle of the old-town with dozens of restaurants, shops and bars all within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel itself reminds you of the old time European classic hotels of times past. There was a sense of elegance and sophistication that you can only get from something that has been around for a long time. Our room was large with high ceilings. The furniture was dated but clean and functional. The beds were comfortable and the linens were fresh and the blankets were very warm. The heating system was probably a bit inadequate for the size of the room, but we were warm enough. The bathroom was updated and very modern and because the bathroom was much smaller the heat was very warm and that was good. As most 4 & 5 start hotels go, the breakfast was on the expensive side so we decided to eat outside the hotel, there is a coffee shop across the street with great coffee, hot chocolate, pastries and croissants. We ate dinner in the hotel our first night because we were tired and it was bitter cold to walk around. We were the only ones in the restaurant with one waitress. The food was very good and the service was very pleasant. The second night we eat at a local polish restaurant. The hotel staff was very accommodating and they apologized when they told us that the cable TV was not working and only local programs were working (only three stations all in polish). Overall we have a great experience and if I every go back to Krakow, preferably in the summer, I will stay at this hotel again. I would recommend this hotel to single couples or older travelers. It would probably be a waste of money to bring small children. This is not a budget hotel and if you are looking for a western style hotel this is not that type of hotel either.
