“Vey nice hotel all round but noisy”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The hotel Columbus is in a central location and only a short walk to the main square. Trams stop outside if you are feeling Lazy. A nice room, very helpful staff and an excellent breakfast. it was very clean. The big downside is the noise. it is on the main round so you can hear the trams. That would not be so bad if it was not for the building work next door which starts extremely early. we would have been able to adapt if had commenced at 8 o'clock but it was well before this time. The hotel obviously has no control on what goes on next door and we are sure the law about what time noisy work can start in Poland is different to the UK. If a good night sleep is very important to you then you might want to look elswhere. If on the other hand noise does not bother you then all other aspects of this hotel are very good. At the end we had mixed feeling but were tired

I would like to thank you for your positive feedback about our hotel. Your opinion is extremely valid to us and we treat it with a big amount of respect.
Regarding your opinion about our neighborhood, unfortunately the situation is beyond our control (we many times have been asking for silence). Happily the most noisy building work is already done.

Wishing you only good trips

We had a fantastic stay at Hotel Columbus, just one night, although we wished it could have been longer! Great location in Kazimierz, surrounded by historical sights and fabulous restaurants and cafés (try Trezo for dinner and Baroque on Plac Nowy for lunch or cocktails). The main market square is just a 15 min walk or 5 min tram ride away (tram stop located almost directly outside the hotel - v handy!). Staff were v helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The hotel is happy to arrange tours and booked our airport taxi hassle free. We'd definitely come back and would highly recommend as a base for a break in this gorgeous city.

We had a Lovely 4 Night stay at The Columbus............
The Rooms are Modern clean & Bright,The Bathroom was spotless!They are a Good size and the Beds are very comfortable.
The Breakfast Room is light and Airy and there was a good choice for any taste.
The Staff are very friendly and helpful, always a Hello, day or night and they helped book both our trips to Auscwitz and The Salt Mine ( which are a must if you visit)
It is a 10 minute walk to The Main Square which is Beautiful...
We also Loved The Jewish square 2 minutes away...Lovely litte Bars there.
Schindlers Factory is about 15-20 minutes walk away.
I would recommend this Hotel and would definatley stay there Again....
Thank you.

Room Tip: We had Room number 34 on the third floor On the back of the Hotel.

There was building work being undertaken next to the hotel which started very early in the morning which was very noisy. Whilst this issue was out of the control of the hotel, being woken up early in the morning did have a disruptive effect and somewhat spoilt our holiday. The hotel itself was good with nice rooms, an excellent breakfast and friendly and helpful staff. It was kept clean. The location was fairly central and was ideal to get around Krakow. They booked tours for us to both Auschwitz and the Salt Mines. We would stay here again but only if we were sure the building work next door had finished,

Room Tip: If you want a good night sleep wait until the building work next door has finished

Arrived late eve and settled in, asked about restaurant and was taken / shown where recommended restaurant was by the doorman who turned out to be very helpful over the few day we were there. Reception staff booked all our trips in the evening after we had eaten and decided if we wanted to do anything the following day(sometimes you book and then don't feel like doing what you've booked due to tiredness). Bedroom was very good all facilities worked and well appointed. Breakfast was good, room has air con and works! Would recommend this hotel which is a short walk from the main square and around the corner for the Jewish quarter and 20 min walk to Schindlers factory.

We spent six days at the Columbus Hotel and enjoyed every minute. From arrival to departure, the Staff was always available to answer questions, offer advice, and suggest restaurants and places to visit. Our room was good size, very clean and modern. It was thankfully on the back side of the hotel so we did not hear any road noise. The Tram Stop is right outside the door, so getting around the city is easy.

Breakfast was great. The breakfast room was light and airy feeling and up to date. The food selection was very good, and kept well stocked. Coffee was made fresh and tasted so good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Krakow and the Columbus Hotel. Thanks for your Hospitality and we will be back again.

Staff were very friendly and approachable. They could speak fluent English, so there is no reason for English travellers to feel nervous of not knowing the language.
Room service was extremely good value for money.Room was spotlessly clean and very modern.The balcony to the rear was a nice touch.
There was a wide selection of breakfast items available and you could request items from the staff.
The only downside to the hotel, which is no fault of their own. There is building work next door which is extremely noisy. The work can start at 5am in the morning which isn't great if you'd like a lie in...

Room Tip: All rooms seemed smoke free. Request a quiet room away from builders. If worried of tram noise reque...
