If you are offered Room 234 (single) in the old part of the hotel be aware of the following:- 1. It is very noisy with no secondary or double glazing, the tram runs underneath the room and starts at about 4 am in morning - it gets very noisy even with ear plugs and you may find it difficult to...

The Hotel Royal is located at the entrance of Krakow's Stare Miasto - this historic city's Old Town. It is an old hotel with an atmosphere of faded elegance. A newer section appears to have doubled the size of the building and has also created a maze-like facility that can be difficult to navigate. The long corridors with very high... More

Just returned from a week stay in the beautiful city of Kracow. Unfortunately we were staying in the Royal Hotel ( the picture you show by the way is of the rear entrance ). It purports to be a 3* hotel because it has a manned reception into the wee small hours. On one side of the hotel the trams... More

Pros: 1. Excellent location - 15 minutes walk from the Old Town, 10 minutes from the Jewish quarter, right next to the Castle. 2. Room and bathroom very clean. 3. Breakfast more than adequate (but can't vouch for the hot food) 4. The layout (as mentioned many times) is very odd but not a problem if you are aware in... More

I was travelling on my own to spend some time in Krakow for 3 nights. I had a single room which was suitable for my needs. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom clean, and the wifi was very good. I must say, I was rather amused by the TV, I haven't seen a box one in use since the... More

I had very high hopes for this place and I wan't let down - the location is perfect (just by Wawel Castle), the hotel itself is quiet, looks really good, the rooms are nice, clean, decent beds are placed (the mattresses could be a bit thicker). Breakfast offers a variety of foods and drinks, I found it very surprising. 10/10... More

NO RELIABLE WIFI. This little place's a prime example of greatness that's been allowed to die...and it's dead alright and decomposing, the smell of which you can experience on every floor.

Stayed here recently, was very disappointed that they have moved the breakfast room from the Pod Wawelem restuarant to the soulless Cafe Art at the far end of the hotel. It is totally dull and characterless in comparison. When we stayed 6 years ago, the breakfast room was the highlight of our holiday, plus the room we had then was... More
