Over 100 years old and full of old world charm. A uniformed doorman, pleasant reception staff and lovely decor make you feel that you have arrived somewhere very special. Spacious room and bath robes and slippers for your comfort. Lovely breakfast all freshly prepared and a good choice to suit everyone. The Hotel is in a brilliant location for exploring...

This hotel is situated in a very central location only a leisurely ten minutes walk to the main square. It is an old hotel and decorated accordingly. The staff are very welcoming and go out of their way to help you. We booked a trip to Auschwitz with reception and it was excellent. Auschwitz is a good one hour drive...

We couldn't fault this hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and polite. The variety of food available at breakfast was amazing you were also able to order omelettes etc made to your choice. The coffee machine produced the best cappuccino's I've ever had from a machine. The room we stayed in was clean and very roomy. We didn't hear any...

I liked the decoration of the room - old style, personal kind of design. Unfortunately, the walls were so thin we could hear the neighbors talking and closing the doors. There was also a construction site just outside of our window while we were staying at the hotel. Breakfast was not so fantastic. The staff, however, was extremely nice, competent...

We spent 3 night in Hotel Francuski, 11 – 14 March. A wee family break with my husband and our 2 sons. We arrived in Krakow at 8pm so opted for a taxi transfer from the airport to get to the hotel quickly. The transfer was about 20-30 mins, check in was very quick, we opted to take our luggage...

The hotel is beautiful with an amazing staircase. Less than a 10 minute walk to the station and the centre of the old town. The staff are lovely, the hotel is spotless and the breakfast is excellent with so much to choose from. I would definitely come back and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel

First time in Krakow and I was amazed by the whole experience. I can't compare this hotel to others in the area as it's the only hotel I stayed in. It's very old fashioned in keeping with the style. Very well equipped and comfortable. Very grand. Extremely clean. The location was fantastic, 5 minutes to the main square. The breakfast...

French hotel is located in historic centre of Krakow, opposite The Princes Czartoryski Museum, few meters from the old city walls and the Barbakan. Within easy reach there are many galleries, jewelry stores and during tourist season - also a bazaar with works of art, presented by the old defensive wall. Whole French Hotel is filled with old elegance what is already evident upon entering the lobby and impressive staircase with columns. It is the oldest building in Krakow erected immediately as a hotel - was opened in 1912. Interior is influenced by the popular at that time an art deco style. The rooms and suites are decorated with wallpapers, pictures, and graphics showing former Krakow, as well as solid, stylized furniture. The bathrooms are comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean. Some suites may be combined, by which the hotel is recognised among traveling families. Listening to a clock beating in the lobby or sipping tea in a cafe, you can travel in imagination hundred years to the past. The building is famous for almost a hundred years of its restaurant serving delicious Polish cuisine. ... more   less
