Reviewed 27 November 2006

We stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The hotel is well situated for the old town, the Castle and the Jewish Quarter, and is set back from the road so it wasn't noisy. It has a small breakfast room, but nevertheless an excellent selection of food including fresh fruits, cereals, bread, cold meats and cheese. Our room was very well decorated and was immaculate. Plus points were: robes and slippers, tea & coffee making facilities and a large bathroom, but the downside was a lack of natural light due to there being only a small window. Very attentive and helpful staff. Would definitely recommed this hotel to anyone visiting Krakow.

A lovely small hotel next to the Radisson. Good sized rooms beautifully furnished. Friendly, efficient staff. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The hotel also organised a trip to Auschitwz and the Salt Mines with a local guide Andrew. He was very knowledgable, a great companion and worth his weight in gold. Andrew also picked us up and took us back to the airport.

However the hotel has no bar and no restaurant in the evening. This is not really a problem as there are so many lovely places to eat in Karkow.

Had a great 3 night stay at The Hotel Maltanski, booking influenced by previous positive reviews.

Excellent location only 2/3 mins equidistant from Main Square and Wawel Castle, but nice,quiet and peaceful environment, as Krakow can be noisy in more central locations. Only occasional sound of horse-drawn carriages (which I'd recommend) from the road outside.

Staff helpful and arranged taxi's to take us back and forward from airport. Had slight problem with air-conditioning, which I think was more to do with hotel's electricity supply than the unit itself.

The room was large and had a spacious bathroom which seems to be the norm. Good shower and bath, and towelling robes were another nice touch.

Breakfast was fine, but mostly cold dishes apart from frankfurters.

Overall, I would have no hesitation staying at the Maltanski again. My only recommendation would be if it was possible to have a small bar area somewhere in the hotel, that would be beneficial, but there is a reasonably priced mini-bar in the rooms plus tea and coffee making facilities, so maybe that's not that important for most people. We often like having a wee nightcap back at our hotel...but we're Scots afterall!

Highly Recommended.

What a beautiful little hotel - small but perfectly formed. No complaints at all and would certainly have no hesitation in recommending it. Can't say anything negative at all.

I have reserved this hotel for 5 nights on the last week of March 2006 after to have read all the reviews on this website about a lot of Krakow hotels.
The hotel is a 3 stars, but it’s much better than a lot of 4 stars that I have seen until now.
The room and the bathroom are very big and super clean with nice furniture and well heated, beds also are very very comfortables.
The breakfast is excellent and very well served (ask the "cappuccino", it's very good), usually is a cold buffet but you may ask hot dishes.
Fantastic the location (50 mt. next to the Radisson SAS), only 3/4 minutes from the main square and the Wawel too.
Moreover no only one little noise because the rooms are located in a very good position and not on the street front.
You may take a look for more hotel informations on the website (--) but the rooms, the restaurant and the hall are much nicer than the pictures on the website.
If raining you have complimentary umbrellas (we have used it every day).
The staff is very kind and very helpfull. I have asked in advance and they have organized the round trip transfer apt/htl/apt for a total of 150 PLN and the Auschwitz and Salt Mine tour in the same day with a private car (2 passengers only) for a little bit more (450 PLN + Salt Mine tickets) than the regular organized coach tour sold in internet (432 PLN with the Salt Mine tickets included), but in this tour we had a lot of stops on the way to see more places and the guide-driver has given us a lot of usefull informations about the Krakow history.
If you are planning to visit Auschwitz and Salt Mine and save time, book the tours in advance through the Maltanski's reception.
About Krakow, beyond the more famous placesto see, don't miss the Museum of Archdiocese in ul. Kanonicza 19-21 (where Karol Wojtyla lived as bishop), the Collegium Maius in ul. Jagiellonska 15 (Copernicus has studied there), the Czartoryski Museum in ul. Sw. Jana 19 (with paintings of Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci).
In Kazimierz the big Jewish Cemetary at the end of Miodowa Street and the beatiful curch in Bozego Ciala.
About the food try to taste bigos, pierogi (with meet or cheese in russian style), the zurek soup and the nalesniki as dessert.
We have found a nice restaurant named "Checowa" in ul. Jagiellonska 11 where they have a superb goulash and very good prices (70/80 PLN for 2 peoples).
If you need relax in the main square, go to the Europjska, a really lovely cafe with the best hot chocolate and ice-cream too.
About the shopping we have found a nice amber necklace c/o the Amber Chamber shop in ul. Florianska 42 amd my wife a lot of shirts at very good prices c/o the Promod shop in ul. Florianska 18.
If you need cash with AMEX card, an ATM machine is located in ul. Florianska c/o the Millenium Bank.
That's all, have a good time in Krakow !!!
