    Underground cellar pool!!
    The pictures of the pool area do not do the place justice, absolutely fantastic and I was sad to leave. There is no other place I would stay in Krakow
    Dean, gb4 night trip
    Good 6.0
    Hotel is in a great location! The spa and pool area were beautiful! Depending on which room you had the room and bathroom were very small. Rooms are loud that are facing the main square. Inconsistent room service. Didn’t change the sheets and didn’t leave waters. Had a shirt pressed while there and did not do a good job. Receptionists were very nice and accommodating.
