A fantastic location, beautiful historical building, great staff, wonderful rooms - all these things make your stay perfect. One minus - there should be more light in the bathroom near the mirror. All the rest - just perfect.

location is very central, opposite Karol Woytila museum and close to the castle. Very nice boutique hotel, room spacious and quiet. I would rather have a walking shower in a room rather than a bathtub which may be difficult to use. Staff was very nice and gentle and helpful with information
