“Fab Time in Krakow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2008

Stayed 4 nights at rhe Columbus and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was excellent from check in to getting shown to your room, bedrooms kept immaculate and breakfast buffet continuously replenished.
Hotel only open a year so everything was gleaming. The interior design is fantastic.
Reception offered to book tours for us but we chose to "do" excursions to Wieliczka Salt Mine and Auschwitz independently. Both were easy to do by public transport and considerably cheaper than taking the escorted options available.
Enjoyed the Kazimierz area of the city. Clearly here is a lot happening there in terms of regeneration and really enjoyed the vibe in that area. Was also glad of the works going on in ul. Starwislna when we were there. I know it seems odd to say that but it largely kept traffic and trams from passing our front facing room. I'm sure this would be a factor when things get back to normal so i would recommend asking for a room to the rear of the property.
Had some great meals - went to Pepe Rosso, Nostalgia, Trzy Papryczki and Miod i Malina. The latter was our favourite. Beatiful food and a great atmosphere.
Weather was mixed but this did not keep us from exploring the city and the main square and Wawel Castle are lovely.
All in all a great place for a city break and i have been recommending it to everyone since my return.
I will be back....
