Royal Hotel

Reviewed 16 July 2012 via mobile

This hotel could be great but if your room is on the street car side you may as well be sleeping beside a freight train and the street car runs from 4:30am until at least 1am. The hotel also has no air conditioning and sleeping with the windows open is unbearable because of the street car. Aside from this, it is in a fantastic location, the rooms were a good size and clean.

Lovely large, clean room. Helpfull staff and great breakfast. Hotel is very big and easy to get lost. Our room was the same side as the road and because it was very hot 30 degrees plus we had to have the windows open all the time as no air con or fans. The noise from the street was very loud. Trams run from 5am - 11pm so no respite. Hair dryer and tea making facilities would make all the difference.

First plus was that they had a room for us even though we hadn't booked it in advance and it was late night. The staff was really helpful, room spacious and tidy, everything as it should be. Decent breakfast as well. Cannot say anything bad about this hotel. Only that it is huge and maybe easy to get lost inside.

Huge bedrooms (two rooms and two bathrooms) most like an apartment than a standard hotel bedroom. Silent, comfortable and logistically close to perfection.
Staff is truly friendly and helpful.
Breakfast tasty (better not arrive too much late).

The Royal Hotel is old and huge, but felt intimate and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was hearty and the service was excellent. The location is across the street from Wawel Hill and a short walk to the Old Town Square and its gorgeous sights and many restaurants. Our only complaint was a faint odor in the bathroom.

After initial booking with an other hotel that did not respond to a couple of requests for info. We fortunately found the Hotel Royal site. The service, food & accomodations were excellent, actually if you read the previous reviews #1 & #3 it will confirm our experience at the Royal. Strongly recommend the Hotel Royal for family and friends. This was our first trip to Poland and our 15+ trip to Europe. Note the photo of the Hotel on their web site is a bit misleading, it shows the hotel as being a bit older, which it is, but everything in side is either 4 or 5 star!

Room Tip: The hotel has a main entrance for the desk, but some of the rooms are located in a second building t...

We spent two nights at the Hotel Royal. Our room was huge and well furnished. While we did have a room above the street, the trams are not that loud and we had a beautiful view of the Planty. Breakfast was everything you could ask for, and both the bar and restaurant on site were great. I highly recommend this as your Krakow headquarters.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the "new" part of the hotel.
