We stayed for 3 nights in June. Found it quiet and within easy walking distance to everything. It is not a fancy place but served our needs well. recommend it. Entrance was difficult to find when we first arrived. Right in the corner of the squar. Look for the little sign beside the door

I genuinely can't believe this place is rated so highly. Yes, the staff is nice. Yes, the building is interesting and conveniently-located. But that doesn't make up for the state of the rooms. Our room reeked of urine. We spent half of the time trying to figure out if it was coming from the bed, the walls, the vent, the... More

Dear Diana, First of all, I would like to say that I feel sorry that you have had such a bad expeariance staying with us. However, I need to investigate this matter further to be able to say more. What I can say straight away is that I am sure that no one has put you in the room where... More

The guest house is set back in a quadrangle away from the noise of the local Squares. Joanna the receptionist was efficiency personified - nothing was too much trouble for her when arranging tours for us. The room was clean and comfortable although rather dark in the day time due to being surrounded by three floors of the surrounding buildings... More

I spent 3 nights here as part of a G Adventures tour. The hotel was conveniently located on a small square with cafes and bars surrounding it. It is only a couple of blocks walk to the centre of the Old Town and the market areas. The hotel itself is quaint and quite characterful. It is split over two buildings... More

This guest house is very quaint, set in a garden courtyard with vines up the building and all wooden staircases and verandah walkways. The rooms are big and beautifully furnished - you can see that a lot of thought has gone into the furniture, fittings and carpets, all of which work well together and give a warm homely feel to...

Great location and cosy rooms. The place is surprisingly quiet considering that it's in the heart of the old town district with all it's nightlife and tourists. The hosts are kind and very service minded. Perfect place to explore Krakow from.

Ideally located for exploring the old town on foot, as well as the Jewish district, and a walking distance to train station. The staff is friendly and helpful. I stayed there two nights, very satisfied!

While the Globtroter is an older property, the room was clean and large. Only $90 a night for a triple room. The negatives I have are that the beds were noisy and uncomfortable and the pillows were small and desperately need replacing. The location is fantastic, close to the main square with tons of outdoor dining options. Staff was very... More

I stayed here twice, two different rooms, and found it all quite wonderful: charming, quiet, spacious rooms, beautiful courtyard, close to everything but not on top of it. The staff was excellent: helpful, hospitable, and full of good suggestions about where to eat, what to see, and so on. I found everything I hoped for and more.
