“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Hotel Maltanski has a great location between the Old Town and Wawel Castle within easy walking distance of both sights and excellent restaurants. The location is quiet and there is ample and easy parking in a guarded lot for about $15 per night. Our room was spacious and comfortable with the exception of a king bed that was really two joined single beds, unusual for this class of hotel in Poland. We enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine provided in the room. The breakfast buffet had a good selection, but no hot items were offered. The hotel restaurant, though small served a truly excellent dinner, one of the best we had in Poland. Highly recommended.

I visit Krakow often on business and have tried many hotels, I like the Maltanski it's central but in a quiet area with a park on one side which is good as it can be very noisy around the main square. The rooms are large and comfortably furnished, the staff pleasant , reasonable breakfast, overall convenient and good value for a short stay.

Room Tip: Some downstairs rooms have a small terrace

Loved everything about this hotel - spacious room (no 12) with pretty sloping ceilings. Very quiet room with everything well thought out - decent reading lights, loads of space in bathroom for your clobber, bathroom door that shut with a whisper, loads of sockets - made this the most comfortable room I think I've ever stayed in. Location is perfect - as described in previous review. Staff were delightful and breakfast was excellent with the most efficient service (and great coffee). Krakow was amazing - can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: No 12 and 13 were both quiet, large and had air con

Hotel Maltanski more than filled our expectations, based on the exellent reviews in both TripAdvisor and Frommer's. The location could not be better. If you cross the street in front of the hotel and walk straight, it is a mere five minute walk to the central street of Krakow's old town, and only 10 minutes to the Rynek (central square). If you walk five minutes to the right down the street on which the hotel faces, you arrive at Wawel Castle. Another 15 to 20 minutes in that direction, and you arrive at Kazimierz, the old Jewish quarter. There are scores of excellent restaurants within this easily walked circumference. By the end of a couple of days, we felt like we could find our way anywhere in old Krakow.
The hotel itself is located in a beautiful old mansion. The rooms are large and commodious. The beds were very comfortable, as was the bathroom. There is an excellent breakfast included in the lovely breakfast room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And there was extremely good, reliable WiFi available throughout the hotel, including in our room. We would stay here again with pleasure. Highest possible recommendation.

Hotel Maltanski was a wonderful headquarters for my recent stay in Krakow. It’s a charming, small inn with only 16 rooms. This gave it a wonderful boutique feeling. The room was spacious with high ceilings, beautiful parquet floors and fun “eyebrow” windows. It was well-appointed with a large wardrobe, desk, mini-bar, and large bathroom.

Breakfasts were fantastic – a delightful assortment of breads, meat/cheese, vegetables, cereals/yogurt, fresh fruit, and juice. The staff was most attentive, bringing you as many refills of coffee or tea that you desired.

The location could not have been better – only a 5-10 minute walk to the town square, and another 5-10 minute walk to Wawel Castle and the cathedral. It was also located only steps from the Planty park, which was wonderful for walking.

The hotel staff were great – very helpful in arranging for tours and airport transfers. I will return the next time my travels bring me to Krakow.

Room Tip: Room #16 is sunny and welcoming!

Stayed in the Maltanski for 4 nights and it was a delight. Perfect location for restaurants, sight seeing etc and central to some of the most beautiful achitecture I have seen in my life. The staff were very accommodating and pleasant and the room big and comfortable with the added bonus of the mini bar if you fancied a snack or a night cap! As we stayed on the ground floor we had access to our own private little terrace even with the snow on the ground it was really lovely. Good selection of food for breakfast and plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Would definitely recommend and will be back!
