What a great place to stop, if you are thinking about visiting Krakow! We visited here from the 15th-17th July and had fantastic time. Krakow really is well worth visiting. The hotel in general is great and you do not need to look any further! I can't remember her name but the blonde haired receptionist was exceptional, answering any questions we had, and giving us all the information we needed required upon arrival. So a big thank you to her.
Rooms- the rooms were absolutely spotless, couldn't have been cleaner. Your room is cleaned every day, with fresh towels and two bottles of water. There were two fans to keep cool, as obviously it's hot during the summer. Shower fantastic, with a hair dryer in the bathroom too!
Food- We only had breakfast here, but the restaurant and bar are available to use in the evening. Breakfast had a great selection, including frankfurters, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, cold meats, cheeses, salad, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, fruit juice, bread(with toaster). Definitely enough to keep you going.
Location- I found the location fantastic. Not much around the hotel(a shop and a Macdonalds), but there is a tram stop about 1 minute to the left of the hotel. Get the number 8 tram, and this will take you to sights like Wawel castle, the Jewish district, and the main square(which is a wonderful square to visit). This takes about ten minutes to these stops. If you are wanting to go to the bus/train station, as we did to visit Auschwitz, then get the number 10 and it takes you just round the corner from it. I recommend the bus as it takes you right outside, whereas the train doesn't. The trams run until between 11-12 I believe, so we had to get a taxi back one night from the main square. This worked out at about 6 pounds, so you don't need to worry about stopping out late down Ul Szewska(the nightlife). The tram also costs 2.80 zloty(60p).
All in all, a wonderful hotel. A perfect base for exploring Krakow :)
