“Excellent value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

A very reasonably priced hotel in a great location only a few minutes walk from the Old Town Square and the shopping centre.

Rooms - we had a large 3 bedded room overlooking the courtyard, flat screen tv with a couple of english channels, table & 2 chairs, lovely clean bathroom with walk in shower, a double bed and tea/coffee making facilities would have made it that little bit better, room was basic but warm and very adequate especially for the price paid.

Breakfast - selection of cheeses, hams, scrambled egg, sausage, bread, tomatoes, cucumber, jams, pate, fresh fruit salad, yogurts, cereals, toast, coffee, tea, juice, hot chocolate and cakes - perfectly adequate.

Reception were very helpful when our taxi to the airport didnt turn up! Baggage room is provided which is handy when having a late flight back. The two excellent features of this hotel are the price and location. We would have no hesitation in going back

Stayed here for a week in a single room. The price was amazing and the room was clean with internet connection, large bathroom and comfortable bed and table and chairs. The breakfast was surprisingly good however I paid about 1 dollar for a glass of warm water at dinner which is a bit of a rip. Anyway I would recommend this place to anyone, its not posh but does the job.

First impressions were really good, and on reflection the location just couldn't be any better .You are literally 5 or 10 Min's away from all the central attractions, first of all the rooms are basic but very clean, the bathroom was large and modern with clean towels every day, a wee tip here if traveling as a couple insist on a double bed as i overlooked this and we ended up with two singles. ! We also had our room on the opposite side from the nearby Church, which i'm told could be a noise problem, but to be honest we never noticed the bells due to the double glazing installed..! The room itself was quite large with plenty of cupboard space, it also would have been nice to have had some coffee/tea making facilities or even a little fridge but on a lighter note due to the adverse freezing weather it wasn't necessary as i simply put my juice out on the window ledge for 5 Min's...? Enough said..!
I also brought a travel kettle which solved this wee problem, which meant we could have tea/coffee/soup when we wanted...- As for the restaurant well i'm afraid that's where this hotel let's itself down badly, First of all the decor looks and feels like something from the '70s so drab and dreary, and with no heating it was pretty cold especially when the door is continually left open by other inconsiderate guest's, as a result your food gets cold quite quick..The meals in the evening are best described as interesting, we ate in here once and although it was very tasty it got cold very quickly, thus spoiling it.! The prices in here were quite reasonably priced though..!
As for breakfast well what a contrast ! A well stocked selection of cold meats, cereals, yogurts, cooked sausages, eggs, fresh baked bread etc, and as they opened the other section of the restaurant it meant you were away from the draft and kept warm, but all in all this restaurant could do with a serious upgrade..!
In this hotel we found the staff to be very friendly, polite and genuinely helpful, nothing was too much trouble and English was widely spoken. as for excursions you can either book them in the hotel or pop out next door and book , in fact every body's doing tours just shop around it's a buyers market. The staff will also provide you with many maps with directions to get you around, but as you are well within walking distance to the main market square ( 5 Min's ) and if you walk out the door and turn right and right again you will find the bus stop that will take you to the Wieliczka salt mines, keep on walking for a couple of minutes you will see in front of you a very large shopping mall called the GALLERIA It's the biggest in Poland, it has everything trust me..! And from this hotel we walked in minus 20 temperatures down to Schindlers factory museum it took about 35 Min's but worth it as we walked through the Jewish area where Schindlers list was filmed, as for other tours we had booked through another company which took in Auschwitz & Wieliczka salt mine..So anything is possible from the hotel Matejko, which deserves it's 3 * rating just a shame about the restaurant..!
And would i return ? yes of course i would, no worries...!

Room Tip: If you are a couple then make sure you ask for a double bed..!

this hotel is up a quiet side street about a 5 mins walk to the centre of krakow where lots of nice bars and restraunts can be found, the breakfast was great with plenty to choose from, the staff were great and will help you with directions to see the sights of the city,the rooms were large and spotless, bathrooms have great showers, very powerfull,if you hire a car for your stay there is plenty of parking spaces outside the hotel it is free to park over the weekend, our stay at the hotel was very pleasant, a nice experience all together, if you go to krakow get yourself booked in here

Great location, minutes walk from centre and train station. Room is a good size with comfortable bed and most importantly well heated! Tours and trips are easily arranged from the reception or the tour agency just doors away. Staff are all English speaking and helpfully. Breakfast isn't great but why eat at the hotel when there are so many unique cafes to enjoy.? All in all, very good value for money and fantastic location!
