We arrived late on a Saturday evening. As the taxi drove down the side streets, I thought 'what have we done', the area at night looked dodgy, in daylight it was fine, some building work going on in the area, but builders did not disturb us. The hotel is clean, the décor is bland and inoffensive. Staff were nice and friendly. Our rooms were on the third floor. There is no lift, so we felt it after a long day of sight seeing. The hall lights work on sensors, and give you plenty of time. The light was out for the last flight of stairs, but was repaired during our stay.
The rooms are basic, there is a TV, but no coffee/tea facilities. There are no hairdryers. These last 2 points would really up the overall experience. The beds are closer to the sort you would find in a hostel. Basic, not very comfortable, with bedding that doesn't quite fit, although we managed to tuck the nylon bedspreads in to keep our feet covered, as the quilts were not long enough (I am only 5'6" so not a giant). Bathroom was fine. Prior to going I had seen some reviews saying that the showers were mouldy, I saw one spot on the sealant in the bottom corner, not a problem.
Breakfast is a buffet style, and a large choice. Typical cold meats, cheese. Some scrambled eggs and hot dogs, yoghurts, fruit and cake.
The hotel is 3 min walk from the bus stop (straight out the hotel and turn right at the car lot, you will see the stop on your right at the main road junction) Take this bus 1 or 3 stops to get to tram for centre. The tram stop 'Zakopane' is 10 min walk away (Go past bus stop and walk to next main junction, cross over to get tram to town) There is a short cut from hotel to tram. Turn right out of hotel, follow that road past the houses on your right and small wooded rough ground on right, it joins the main road which you follow to the main junction.
Not a bad hotel, we only needed it to sleep in as we were planning to see/do as much as possible while we were in Krakow. It ticked all the boxes we needed.

The Hotel is a good half hour walk from the Main square. It is however quite pleasant to walk there along the riverside path. If you prefer top go by taxi its only approx 20 zloty (approx £4). There is a tram stop nearby which we didn't use. Although our booking had specifically asked for our 3 rooms to be adjacent to each other we were in fact all given rooms on different floors. Our room was on the top (3rd) floor. NB There is no lift. All the rooms don't have any tea or coffee making facilities. Our curtains wouldn't shut properly. Also a couple of lights weren't working, the shower gel dispenser was dilapidated and the bathroom window wouldn't shut. The buffet breakfast was OK. It was however a bit annoying to have a local radio station being broadcast in the breakfast area playing music more suited to a nightclub. On the plus side the hotel is just a couple of minutes away from a lovely big park with woods which was a great place to go for a run (or cycle).

The friendly and helpful staff make this feel like my second home, always welcoming night or day. A comfortable room, a good and varied buffet breakfast, good dining at modest cost ...and all in a peaceful and beautiful location..both a good walk along the river or transport just a few hundred yards away take me into the centre of the wonderful city of Kracow..A great holiday destination for a few days or longer..

On arrival at the Petrus hotel, our party of 11 were told that the hotel had overbooked on the last 2 nights of our stay and 2 of our party would be moved to another hotel. A group of 55 students from Norway were arriving and other guests also had to be moved to other hotels. We were also told that the dining room would be closed to other guests on those 2 nights to accommodate the students and our breakfast sitting was put at 9.00am only. Needless to say the hotel was also quite noisy on the said nights. I must say that the staff were helpful and friendly but it was an inconvenience that 2 of our party had to move.
As a positive the rooms at the hotel were adequate, clean but basic. We mostly used taxis to and from the hotel as this was a cheap way of transport. Breakfast was good with a good variety of both hot and cold food.
We loved the city of Krakow and the Polish people were very friendly.

Room Tip: If booking a double room make sure the bed is bigger than 4 foot!
