“SUPERB”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

On arrival we was welcomed by very friendly and helpful staff, full of knowledge about their wonderful and very interesting city. The hotel was set in an ideal position over looking Wawel castle and the river Wisla.The room we were in had a balcony making it perfect to take in the view.After sampling a vodka or two in the roof terrace bar , it was only a short stroll to the market square.A big recommendation is the free city walking tours.

Room Tip: Ask for river view stunning

good Hotel next to wawel castle and only a Five to ten minute walk from the square. Rooms clean and beds comfortable Rooms cleaned and towels changed every day. The only fault I could find was that there were no in room safes although reception did offer to put anything in their safe Breakfast bacon sausage scrambled eggs and the usual cheese cold meat bread cereal and jams. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was excellent We were given a 20% discount as we were staying in the hotel We booked a trip at reception and the pick up point was only two minutes from the Hotel

Very convenient location next to Wawel castle & the Cathedral within minutes walking of Krakow centre. Staff couldn't be more helpful and the rooftop bar/restaurant has a superb view over the river - An excellent place to relax after a day's sightseeing. Rooms basic but clean and more than adequate for a city break.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet as the traffic is very light.

Stayed here for two nights in November 2013. This is a moderately priced small hotel in a good location beside Wawel Castle and and within walking distance of the old town. My single room was very small, but it was comfortable. One of the reasons for choosing the hotel was for the views provided by the rooftop bar. Unfortunately, the bar was closed the whole time we were there which was very disappointing. Breakfast was good with a good variety of options, and we tried dinner on one night which was also good. Desk staff were efficient.

Stayed here for 4 nights and we were very pleased. The location is perfect - right beside wawel castle and only 10 mins walk from the old town square. Breakfast buffet had lots of options. The room was very clean and staff were nice. I'd recommend the hotel as it was great value for money!

There's a restaurant about 10mins away also called pod wawelem. We tried to check-in there, but the adjoining hotel is actually called hotel royal !!! Just a note in case anyone is confused :L
