I would highly recommend this hotel. I stayed here with my sister and friend on a little break in November ! Hotel was very clean staff were really friendly and nothing was to much for them,they went out of there way to help! Definitely recommend going to the chocolate shop karmelo best chocolates ever ! The only downside was the noise of the tram having been on the front of the hotel. Breakfast was very good just could have been a bit hotter on the eggs sausage and bacon .

We have just spent a long weekend in Krakow staying at the Columbus Hotel. This hotel is in the perfect place just minutes walk from everything. The hotel is self is lovely, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean. The staff are english speaking, very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was lovely, a good selection of just about everything you could want. On top of all that it is great value for money. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel is well positioned for the main square which is a 10 minute walk and is positioned in the Jewish quarter and only a 20 minute walk from the Schindler Factory Museum with a tram stop right outside the door. We had gone on a girls trip and the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful in recommending where to eat how to get to places.
The rooms were big and clean. Breakfast is really good and plentiful.
This hotel is definitely value for money and I will be returning.

The Columbus is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The hotel is beautifully clean and the rooms are very nice. The location is perfect: less than ten minutes walk from the main square and in the Jewish quarter with lots of great bars and restaurants very close. The best thing about the hotel though is the staff who are all absolutely wonderful. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

I stayed here with friends on a three day break in Krakow, and you cannot fault the hotel. It is excellently situated, just a ten minute walk from the city centre with a tram stop outside. The hotel was spotless and the staff very friendly and helpful, giving directions for nearby restaurants and attractions. The room was large and the bed very comfortable with complimentary water replenished daily, I had a room at the front of the hotel and although the trams run from early in the morning until late at night I was not bothered by the noise. The breakfast selection is good fruit, breads, cheese and cold meats with scrambled eggs and bacon, fried eggs on request.
Schindler's factory is nearby and well worth a visit, the hotel is also just around the corner from the Jewish Quarter. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Krakow and would definitely stay here again if visiting Krakow.

Rooms are spotlessly clean with luxurious towels and bedding. Normal hotel size rooms but everything you need. Free bottled water and plenty of luxury toiletries. Great shower.
The staff are SUPERB!! Reception, door man and restaurant girls provide excellent service at all times.
Can't believe the value for money this hotel provides!!!! Situation is perfect - 10 min gentle walk to old town, 5 mins to main Jewish area. Shopping mall 15 min walk towards river.
