“Fantastic little Hotel at a fantastic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

What can I write that everyone else hasn't written already? Hotel Wentzl is closer to a 5Star hotel than other 5stars that I've stayed at recently. I had a beautiful room facing right onto the Square. The lovely ladies at the front desk were exceptionally helpful in every regard. I hope to return to Krakow sometime soon and stay at the Wentzl. The history around the local area can easily keep a tourist busy for a week+.

Amazing hotel - stayed in room 35. Amazing view over the square - has to be seen to be believed. Great service from the staff and at check in was given a lot of information about Krakow and the Tours available - I had already pre-booked my tours from the UK before travelling - but great to have maps etc and vouchers for discounts at restaurants. Breakfast was excellent and the rooms were just amazing - i really cannot recommend this Hotel enough - the only hotel on the actual square. Beautifully designed and decorated rooms but the view from the square facing rooms are simply spectacular. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Krakow.

Room Tip: make sure your room is facing the square with a view of the square - you can check this on their web...

This hotel is the best located one in Krakow. It is cheap by international standards but at the top end of Polish prices. However it is a lovely hotel with the warmest, friendliest staff I have ever come across in 40 years travelling. Aleksandra on reception is exceptional, a very friendly, intelligent, knowledgeable young lady with fluent English for whom nothing was too much trouble. She also recommened a couple of restaurants that were her personal favourites (Pod Baranem and Il Calzone) and they both proved to be outstanding. Joanna on reception was also lovely to deal with at all times and the whole stay was superb.

Would recommend a higher floor looking out conto the square but all rooms are individual so choose what suits you. Our favourites were rooms 45 and 41

Stayed here for a weekend break with my wife and 2 year old daughter. We couldn't have hoped for a better hotel - we had a big deluxe room with view of the Market Square and Cloth Hall. Hotel is LITERALLY on the square with convenient access to restaurants etc. and pigeons, of course, which our daughter loved!
Staff were incredibly friendly and courteous. my daughter even has a Wentzl teddy bear who was waiting for her in her cot.
Rooms themselves were very modern with minibar, flatscreen TV and DVD, huge bathroom and good lift access.
We will definitely be back - just can't wait!!

There is no better hotel to stay in Krakow than the Wentzl hotel. It is PERFECTLY located in the middle of Market Square for easy exploration of the city's sites. Attentive staff and beautiful rooms, this is definitely THE place to stay in Krakow.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are better to get a good perspective on the square. All rooms have wonderful views.

I was recommended to this hotel and was not disappointed. Location is excellent, staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast excellent I really cannot praise it enough.
From the moment we arrived we were well looked after, our bags were taken to our room and we were given plenty of information on Krakow and the various trips available without being given the hard sell.
Our room was very clean, spacious and well laid out, the bathroom (room 44) was excellent, a very good size and the shower WOW! Plenty of hot water, good hair dryer provided, bathrobes and slippers, the hotel really has thought of everything.
Breakfast is continental with the choice of hot food items cooked to order, excellent selection of cold foods available and all fresh.
The hotel arranged our taxi pick up from the airport and we booked a trip through them, we had no problems with either so recommend going through the hotel just for convienence.
There is free wifi in the hotel - another bonus.
I requested a room overlooking the square which I was given, some reviewers have mentioned noise from the square but i can honestly say I was not bothered so don't be put off, the views are really worth it!
All in all a first class hotel that made our first stay in Krakow special and we look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the SquRe - the views are fantastic.

Loved the hotel and the location. Absolutely first class.

Took a star off for their local bookings.

Unfortunately, they do not do anything special with their local tour bookings even though they charge a premium relative to other locations. I did two one to Auschwetiz and one to the Salt Mine. I'm not snooty and generally don't stay in 4/5 star hotels, but if I do I expect excellence from the complete service and frankly the trips were terrible. The guides weren't good, the drivers didn't even pick us up in front of the hotel. The other guests are the trips were "less desirables" (Sorry no better way of saying/explaining this). My advice is just don't book through them -- certainly not worth paying any premium.
