Profile: Krakow Old Town

Profile: Krakow Old Town

The Old Town, located in the city center, is one of Krakow’s prime visitor attractions, with iconic landmarks such as St Mary’s Basilica drawing the crowds. The glorious Renaissance Cloth Hall houses gift shops and restaurants at street level and a grand art gallery on the upper floor dedicated to 19th-century Polish art.

The best way to explore the Old Town is on foot. Starting from St Florian’s Church, follow the Royal Road past the 15th-century Krakow Barbican, down the lively shopping artery of Florianska Street to the main square. Continue up Wawel Hill for panoramic views from the castle.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Light and spacious, spotless and friendly staff

    Gourgeous hotel, room spotlessly clean, felt light and roomy and staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good but served atound the corner so you have to leave the building to get there (not an issue for us though). Slight niggles were the air con light was really bright, even when aircon turned off so don't book if you need darkness. Pillows were really soft and all the same - fine for me but not my partner. Reception didnt hesitate to bring more though to try and help. Staff really efficient and friendly and overall lovely stay

    The apartment was just like the description; staff friendly and helpful; excellent location; It was not clear for me that breakfast was held in another building, outside the hotel… didn’t like the breakfast (few options) - not even chocolate milk. no egg. not worth it.

    Freshly remodeled and comfortable apartment. Good location and service. The only problem is the next door remodeling; you will not be able to sleep over after 8am at least now (October 2021).

    Charming and quiet

    Absolutely loved our stay here. Hotel is right next to the park so very quiet but close to everything in the old town for walking. Rooms were comfy and nicely decorated as was the entire building. Staff was very friendly and super accommodating considering we arrived very late. They arranged our airport transfers and assisted us with calling the tour company when they did not arrive. Breakfast is served around the corner in a bistro and was quite good. We had adjoining rooms and ours included a small kitchenette which was a wonderful surprise. The hotel does have a lift. If we return to Krakow we will stay here.

  • 4.0.Fair

    I would not stay here again.

    I do not like writing bad reviews ever, but there were just too many things I did not like about this hotel. First, many of the rooms face a children's school and they only have blackout curtains or no curtains. So if you want to be in your room and not completely dressed at any time during school hours you have to keep your blackout curtains closed leaving you in a very dark room even with lights on. This alone made me really uncomfortable. The beds were also very uncomfortable and sank in more than I've ever seen beds sink before (and I'm not a large person). When I asked to switch rooms, they said they didn't want to give me a room on the other side of the hotel because of ongoing construction in the adjoining building. I understand why they said that. One day I came back to the hotel at 3pm to take a nap after a full day of exploring the city, and even in my room on the other side of the hotel it was too noisy to comfortably take a nap. Lastly, half the staff were just not very helpful. When I checked in I explained to the the gentleman that I was traveling all over Europe to explore different restaurants and cuisines and I asked if he could help me with some great local restaurant suggestions. His response was "I don't know, I eat at McDonald's." Staff at a 4 star hotel should have decent training, they did not. I will say the hotel is in a nice area and the interior design/decor was well done. But unfortunately just too many other issues to make it worth staying at.
