Regarding location, almost the best you can ask. Right by the Wawel Castle and still only a few minutes on foot to the old square. The hotel offers parking space, but it costs, if I'm not mistaken, around 60zl per day and it is not so close to the hotel's entrance anyway. We were lucky that we were there during...

This hotel was booked over the phone on recommendations from other travellers. The rooms are massive in the old section. It really does have a lot of character if a little in need of modernisation. having said that we had a lovely view over the park which was quiet and peaceful. It is massive!! We ended up walking outside to...

Hotel is in a great location, just a short stroll from the square, If you book any trips you get picked up straight outside. Breakfast normal fare - toast, eggs, cheese, yogurts, pastries, cereal, hams, juice. Rooms large but ask for one facing the gardens, otherwise a bit noisy from the trams that run till about 12.30am. Rooms could do...

This is a huge series of old houses combined into a hotel. While I agree with other reviews that the tram outside is a bit noisy, I think this hotel has real character and charm. My room had a really high ceiling. Excellent bathroom. Comfortable bed. Breakfast was nice, and all the staff were extremely helpful at all times. Perfect...

The Royal Hotel is conveniently located across the Wawel Royal Castle, and within walking distance to the Old City main square, restaurants, cafes and interesting sights. The rooms are big, specially the suites with a sitting area and balcony. The regular rooms are quite ample and comfortable. The bigger rooms have refrigerators, and all have an electric kettle to enjoy...

Located right oposite Wawel Castle and 10 mins walk from the main market square, and about 15mins drive from airport. 24hr reception. Upon arrival at reception we were offered a free city guide and map of the area. Our room was for 3 people and was huge. This old hotel is a bit of a maze and quite easy to...

Arrived to the hotel during September. Great location. The deluxe rooms are very big and nice but the single room wasn't comfortable. The hotel design is lovely and restaurant looks amazing. Remember to book and wait.. otherwise it takes long time. Enjoy.

Difficult to find from reception but once there we had two rooms both 20ft x20ft.Must have been an apartment in years gone by.Bathroom fine though the towels were thin and threadbare.No complaints about breakfast and the location is right next to the castle.

If you are offered Room 234 (single) in the old part of the hotel be aware of the following:- 1. It is very noisy with no secondary or double glazing, the tram runs underneath the room and starts at about 4 am in morning - it gets very noisy even with ear plugs and you may find it difficult to...

The Hotel Royal is located at the entrance of Krakow's Stare Miasto - this historic city's Old Town. It is an old hotel with an atmosphere of faded elegance. A newer section appears to have doubled the size of the building and has also created a maze-like facility that can be difficult to navigate. The long corridors with very high...
