A small but great hotel and one of the best in the Kazimierz area, the liveliest part of Krakow. Although the hotel is on a busy street it was very quiet. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was excellent. There is a small garden in the back of the hotel which provides a perfect quiet spot when one gets tired of the hubbub of the surrounding restaurants, bars and clubs.

Lovely hotel and really helpful staff. Location was good and literally round the corner from the jewish quarter with all the restaurants. Good price, clean rooms and excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend it.

Only suggestion, tea and coffee facilities in the room would be nice.

The Columbus hotel is a very nice boutique hotel, but the location proved to be most convenient for sightseeing at Krakow's old town and the newly opened Schindlers's Factory and Pharmacy museums. As well, the hotel was within short walking distance of a number of excellent restaurants. The room was a bit small, but clean and comfortable. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed Krakow and the Columbus hotel was an excellent base for our four day visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you wish for quiet.

A pleasant small hotel situated on a busy street. Continental breakfast very good also with a choice of scrambled egg, lovely bacon and sausages. Fresh fruit and excellent bread also available. We requested a room at back of hotel by e mail and this was very quiet and very clean. Very good air con. A good walk to the main square but ok even for the over 60's. Plenty of restaurants and cafés just around the corner and thro' small pathway.An excellent place for a short break.

Room Tip: E mail and ask for room at back away from transport noise

The Hotel Columbus is well situated, just at the beginning at the Kazimierz, only a 15 minute walk to old town. It's clean, the staff is very helpful and the breakfast is good. The bed for me was horribly uncomfortable as it was hard as a rock, but my husband loved that so really that's a personal preference thing. It's not a modern or a glamourous hotel, but it has everything you need and it's clean so I would recommend it.

Room Tip: We had two rooms and they were far away from one another. You may want to ask to have the rooms clos...

We rented 2 rooms in this hotel, one for me and my wife and another for my two daughters. The hotel has been recently renovated and is nice and clean with comfortable beds. Even though it is on a reasonably busy street with trams passing by, the sound proofing is excellent so you cant really hear the street noise even in the rooms facing the street. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel is reasonably priced and the location in Kazimierz is also excellent. It is about a 15 min walk from the old town center. However, it is near a square with many good reasonably priced restaurants and live entertainment.
I would strongly recommend this hotel.
