“Perfect Hotel in Perfect Location!”
Reviewed 6 December 2010

We stayed there for three nights/four days in Dec 2010 and it was just perfect. It's a small 'boutique' hotel but it reeks of style and atmosphere. The location cannot be beaten, as the annual Christmas Market, (which is a big seasonal attraction from 30th November to end of December) is located in the square, directly outside the hotel door. In the summer time, the square is a major tourist attraction, with outdoor cafes and bars. Wawel Castle, another tourist 'must see', is just a short few blocks away, as well as several other significant churches, museums, the 'cloth hall' etc, all within a stone's throw.
Staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Food was excellent, but we only had breakfast every day and preferred to dine out for all other meals. (There was a myriad of choices, offering all varieties to suit every pocket and taste, all within a minute or two of a walk from the hotel.)
Rooms were warm and very comfertable (It was -15 C while we were there) and we were always 'toasty' warm. The double windows kept out the cold and the noise, quite adequately. If we were ever to return to Krakow, we would not stay anywhere else.

Right in the center of Krakow. Best possible location in the city. Very nice wievs from the window. Spacious and comfortable room. Breakfast is satisfactory, but not great. Helpful staff. Free wifi in the room. Some more light needed in the room. Maybe it's their decoration style but it was really dark in the room.

If you are looking for the perfect location in Krakow, this is the hotel for you!

We found the hotel staff to be professional, and accommodating. Our room had classy, comfortable old world furniture, Hotel Wentzl is however an old quirky hotel - the plumbing made some very unique sounds, the floors squeek.... all things we appreciate, but might not be what everyone is looking for.

I hope Hotel Wentzl does NOT try to reinvent itself into a cold contemporary "updated" hotel. It is perfectly charming just the way it is.

This hotel, its location, and staff were beyond fabulous. The hotel was once a private residence, so its small number of rooms give it a very intimate feeling. The room and bathroom were larger than I expected and comfortable. The view from our balcony was amazing and could not be beat. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the elegant dining room. The friendly hotel staff went out of their way to help us at every opportunity. On our first day in Krakow, our train arrived 3 hours late and the very helpful staff helped us contact our tour guides who had given up on our arrival. Our flight out of Krakow was very early in the morning and we were delighted to find that the hotel staff packed us each a "brown bag" breakfast for the trip. If I ever found myself in Krakow again, I could not imagine staying anywhere else.

I stayed in Krakow one night in May of 2010 with zero expectation and no knowledge of Krakow or Poland. I instantly fell in love with the town square, the eclectic style of the people, and the bugler. I checked in at Wentzl at 3am due to bad weather and travel delays. The staff was incredibly accommodating offering a late check out and an extra night if necessary since we did not get to enjoy the hotel that evening. I've never been treated so well. The room was absolutely beautiful in an old world, but updated style. We had surround sound, beautiful wood floors, every detail was impressive. I'm afraid my pictures do not do it justice. I've stayed all over the world, but this hotel is one of my top picks for service and beauty. I'll definitely be back to Krakow and will stay at Wentzl every time.

Reviewed 14 September 2010

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, and enjoyed every second of it. The location is right on the main square in the old town, with nice restaurants, bars and sights all around us. The rooms were beautiful, all different, but spacious and clean. We had one room with a large balcony and one larger one without. The view from the bigger one was the square, but unfortunately, it was warm, and a little noisy with the window open (we found the swich to the aircondition the next day :-)). The hotel breakfast was to die for, we carved for it even just after having finished our dinner every night. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms came with a bathrobe and slippers, and coffee, tea and small crackers.
The city itself is also beautiful, with lots too see and do, both for sightseeing and for shopping. Enjoy!

I had wanted to stay at The Wentzl for a number of years and it didn't disappoint. As others have said, the location on the Old Square is perfect - the viiew from the window in the morning before the crowds arrived was spectacular. We had two rooms on the 4th Floor, 41 and 46, one overlooking the square and the other with a small balcony and a view of the Castle. The rooms were well decorated and spotless with everything you could need and super air-conditioning. The breakfasts were great - good variety and an a la carte option of hot food if you required it. Free internet access in the lobby. The staff were very helpful and arranged various trips and booked our overnight train tickets to Budapest for us. The Wentzl Ice Cream Parlour on the ground floor was fabulous - we visited every day and would thoroughly recommend it. Didn't eat in the restaurant but would recomment Smak Ukrainski (very good value Ukrainian food close to hotel) and Pod Aniolami (Polish food served in atmospheric cellars, again close to the hotel). Really couldn't fault The Wentzl and would love to go back.
