I thought the hotel was pleasant but not outstanding.
Approx 25mins walk from bus/train station and maybe 15/20 mins into the old town square. On a fairly busy road with a tram stop nearby. Supermarket over the road. There was a bar in the hotel but during my 3 day stay I saw nobody use it, so there was no visible social scene in the hotel. Room was functional, bed comfortable but not luxurious, small balcony, desk/dressing table, good shower (no bath in my room) and nice citrus toiletries (also available at Four Pillars Hotels premium rooms in the UK). Room was very warm (why radiator set to max?).Funky carpets in room, floor tiles in bathroom (not heated). Breakfast was a good offer; usual selection of cereals, cold meat and cheeses. Enjoyed the nutty bread. Hot choice of scrambled egg/bacon/frankfurter type sausage and I think boiled/poached egg to order. Huge choice of dining options in the vicinity. Nothing to advertise whether the hotel would organise trips to the local tourist sites ie salt mine, auschwitz, zakopane. In summary, very good value but a more central location to the old town would make it perfect.
