Great friendly and helpful staff. Room basic but clean. Great central location. Breakfast not great but has something go tide you over... plenty of cheap cafes to get something more appetising. Only downside is the club over the road and the stag parties making noise all night long. Slept very little but as only there for 3 nights it didnt...

This is a really good hotel. Situated in a beautiful street, two minutes from the Rynek or the Planty, it is really great. Rooms are comfortable enough, with average good beds, TV and good bathroom. Unfortunately ours *room No 8* looked like a hallway. Long, with two beds in a row. There is an exchange office just outside the entrance...

Remember that scene in The Blues Brothers when Elwood takes Jake back to his hotel? This place put me in mind of it. I'd had a mishap with the hotel I'd booked and a helpful Krakowian pointed me at this place. I kind of wish she hadn't. To say the rooms are basic would be to imply they had budget...

Basic bed and breakfast. This place is rather dated in decor but has clean and comfortable rooms. The breakfast is adequate with juice yoghurt cold meats tomato cucumber and tea and coffee. The position is great.

This very cute guest house is located metres from the cobble stone streets of the town square. The town square is a fairytale - so beautiful. Within walking distance to train station, it has a lot of character. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was simple but nice, rooms were clean and safe. The only downside was the location of...

Every year we seem to find a new B&B that equals or surpasses the last one we stayed at. The Golden Lion Apartments is another great cheap B&B within a minute or two’s walk from the Market Square. The rooms are the typical narrow but long type that you find in a lot of the B&B’s in the area. Spotlessly...
