It's over 100 years old and the building is kept to a very high...

Krakow is beautiful and incredibly cheap. We're definitely coming again. If you stay away from the bars on the actual square, pints are about £2. Vodka shots are similar (you must try cherry vodka). A bottle of vodka to take home is about £5. If you do come, there are two airports which officially serve Krakow. However, one is an...

We chose this hotel using lastminute.com, it has a wonderful old world feel to it, the staff are incredibly friendly and will go out of their way to help you! The room we stayed in was at the front of the hotel and was very quiet, bar the odd clattering of horses hooves as the carriage rides go by. The...

Very good location with only 2-5 minutes walk from the Old Town area. Also walking distance from public transit system. Hotel staff was experienced, knowledgeable & helpful with our requirements. Breakfast had buffet options with made to order dishes.The staircase leading from the entrance to the upper floors is impressive and a genuine feature of a bygone era.

We stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is elegantly decorated, if not a bit faded with time. I loved this style and feeling of times past. It fitted in with the rest of Krakow. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in an apartment. It was huge and had everything we needed. The shower was a bit sad...

We were here for 3 nights & had an amazing stay! All the staff were very friendly, welcoming & helpful. Our room was warm & comfortable which was essential due to the freezing temperatures outside! The hotel provides an excellent choice for breakfast & the complementary packed lunch was completely unexpected! The Francuski is no more than five minutes stroll...
