“Good Location - nice hotel - good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2009

Good place to stay for a weekend. Eat in restaurant - food was fine but lot of restaurant in town. Free bar worked well in the evening after returning from the Old Town. Took the electric golf buggy tour – six of us so made it a good way to see the old Jewish sector and the Ghetto area. Went for Christmas markets – nice atmosphere. Contary to others found staff very helpful.

The room size was adequate for a short stay, but would be cramped for an extended stay or for business people looking for a work area ( none existed). The service was good. The breafast was excellent with a good selection. Because of the hotel's size, the breakfast rrom was not full and noisey; this lead to a great experience. The rooftop bar provided an excleent view of the area.
Yhe hotel's is located on the river, by the castle and a short walking distance from old town. This makes the hotel a perfect location for tourist.

Very good hotel is centrally located in Krakow. The reception is fantastic. When we arrived it rained. We had to borrow staff's own umbrella to go out of town
Buying the free bar was not very successful unless you're an alcoholic or an Englishman. It was not nice in the pub with all the screaming Englishmen
We ordered a taxi through the hotel and it was good, a very nice driver with a nice ride took us to and from the hotel without problems.
The rooms were clean and well cleaned. We enjoyed excellent and will definitely come back to this wonderful hotel

i went with a friend on a package holiday for 4 nights. the hotel was easy to find and it was in a good location next to the castle. from there you can walk almost anywhere.
the rooms very extremely small and cold. had to ask for another duvet each. the staff very friendly except for a dragon of a woman on the front desk so unfriendly that whatever you asked her she bared at you. there is a resturant within the hotel which i believe (not sure) is run indipendently which is wounderful. we ate there the first night as we were tired. the 2nd night we went somewhere else which was much more expensive and the food nowhere near as good, so for the last 2 nights we ate at the hotel. there was nothing we ate that wasn't very good, in fact well above average.

Location next to castle, short walk from old town and from jewish quarter and next to river seems quite good.

Breakfast exceeded expectations for a hotel of this price we paid about £50 per night (full range of meats and cheeses, fruit, cereals and hot food available).

Room and bathrom was quite good, but not exactly soundproof and not exactly luxury. On the other hand, we did not pay 5* prices, so why should we expect 5* standard?

I stayed at the Pod Wawelem Hotel with work mates from the 18th of April this year. A very nice hotel, a fine and clean room, good food. The tray with different sorts of cheese was excellent! The coupons we could use to get free drinks in the evenings were great, I just misunderstood it one evening. It did not include Hennesey Cognac XO.:-) That cost me some money.'
But the staff was not to blame, it was my fault.
I am looking forward to coming back

Upon arrival we were given free drinks vouchers for the bar from 7-11. Nice touch, didnt expect that.

No complaints about the room whatsoever, bathroom was an excellent size aswell.

They have a summer roof terrace on the 6th floor, stunning views, great service.

Check out is 12 instead of some of the silly 10am checkout times at some hotels.

Have stayed at another hotel in Karkow for nearly twice the price and this was nearly on par with it.

Would definately recommend and will probably be visiting again if the price is right!
