I picked this hotel largely due to the good location in relation to the Christmas Markets (my reason for visiting Krakow) and other tourist attractions as well as the view. It is about 10mins walk away from the main market square (Rynek Glowny). It has a fantastic view of Wawel Royal Castle and the Vistula River especially from the rooftop... More

Highly recommend this hotel as a base for tourists visiting Krakow. This was our first time visiting the city and chose this hotel based on past reviews but predominantly for the beautiful location/views of the Wawel castle and Vistual river scale. We had two rooms: One twin (4th floor with Juliette balcony door, partial castle river view) and one single... More

We arrived at the hotel after being picked up by the hotel taxi from the airport, someone was waiting for us and it cost 100zl. The room was basic but all we needed for our stay, had a hair dryer, kettle, tv etc. No safe, water wasn't replaced everyday and our curtains didn't quite cover the whole window, but was... More

Very nice hotel, spotlessly clean, lovely roof terrace with great views of the river and castle. Staff speak good English, and very helpful. We stayed on B&B basis and breakfast was vast with a good selection, evening meal menu looked good, however we chose to explore Krakow centre and the Jewish quarter. Definitely recommend this hotel, and would stay again... More

Great twin room on top floor with side view of river. Although under the outside restaurant it wasn't too bad, you could hear the staff moving barrels or something to that effect. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would certainly stay in that hotel again and also recommend it to friends and family.🤗

Pod Wawalem is close to the castle and easy walking distance from the main square. The room was small but perfectly formed. Really good breakfast. Strong Wifi. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant in the hotel and plenty of cafes nearby.
