My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in January 2014, we pick hotels based on their reviews from others and we are glad we did. This hotel is in a great location with comfortable 20 minute walk to the old town and not far at all from the castle.
Breakfast - were not picky people but there was very little choice for breakfast, it is continental style breakfast, however we never went without there is toast and some cereal for the more picky ones of us.
Rooms - just what you need, nice, clean bathroom with power shower, it has a hairdryer in the bathroom, which was great as it meant i didn't have to pack mine in my hand luggage, but it has very little power and if you have lots of hair (like i do) it does take time to dry.
Beds - two twin beds pushed together, this doesn't matter much as after all the vodka at night (which you cannot avoid tasting whilst there) you really wouldn't mind where you slept. 1 gigantic pillow which was a little odd but we made do, it really was just a base for us, didn't spend much time in the room at all.
Rooms in general are extremely hot, we didn't have our heating on and had to open the window in the middle of January, however at least it wasn't too cold. Rooms are big enough for what you need and very clean - cleaners went in every day and changed towels everyday too.
Nice pleasant staff on reception, nothing seemed too much trouble, although we didn't really bother hem much to be honest.
Hotel only short walk from train station and you can get train straight from airport - there is free shuttle bus waiting outside the airport to take you around the corner to train station where you can get train for 12 Zloty each (around £2) straight to Krakow main train station then only 30 minute walk to hotel. Train journey around 20 minutes.
Bus also waits outside airport to get to Krakow center, this takes around 40 minutes but only cost 50p.
Places close by a must try -
Singer pub - excellent character
Paparazi lovely staff, great vodka
Zazie Bistro - the nicest and cheapest 3 course meal we've had

In the old town the Wodka bar (100 different flavored vodkas) is a must visit and Irish embassy pub for the football.
The old town is lovely in itself and very pretty, a great market in the old town also.
We would return for another visit!! THANK YOU
