Room 301 had a hallway/entrance, sitting room area with a desk, table, tv fridge and four comfy chairs. The main bedroom had...

The hotel is excellently situated close to the train station,minutes from the old town and main square and a leisurely 20 minute walk to the Jewish Quarter.It also offers a late breakfast till 11 0' clock which is quite rare these days and it is a very good breakfast and you are waited on by wonderful staff.

We opted to stay at Hotel Francuski for our second visit to Krakow from 12 to 16 February 2017, after reading reviews and due to the facts we wanted to stay in a traditional hotel. Francuski did not disappoint and exceeded our expectations in all areas. This is an amazing, period hotel, over 100 years old and is situated in...

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
French hotel is located in historic centre of Krakow, opposite The Princes Czartoryski Museum, few meters from the old city walls and the Barbakan. Within easy reach there are many galleries, jewelry stores and during tourist season - also a bazaar with works of art, presented by the old defensive wall. Whole French Hotel is filled with old elegance what is already evident upon entering the lobby and impressive staircase with columns. It is the oldest building in Krakow erected immediately as a hotel - was opened in 1912. Interior is influenced by the popular at that time an art deco style. The rooms and suites are decorated with wallpapers, pictures, and graphics showing former Krakow, as well as solid, stylized furniture. The bathrooms are comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean. Some suites may be combined, by which the hotel is recognised among traveling families. Listening to a clock beating in the lobby or sipping tea in a cafe, you can travel in imagination hundred years to the past. The building is famous for almost a hundred years of its restaurant serving delicious Polish cuisine. ... more   less
