First plus was that they had a room for us even though we hadn't booked it in advance and it was late night. The staff was really helpful, room spacious and tidy, everything as it should be. Decent breakfast as well. Cannot say anything bad about this hotel. Only that it is huge and maybe easy to get lost inside.

Huge bedrooms (two rooms and two bathrooms) most like an apartment than a standard hotel bedroom. Silent, comfortable and logistically close to perfection. Staff is truly friendly and helpful. Breakfast tasty (better not arrive too much late).

The Royal Hotel is old and huge, but felt intimate and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was hearty and the service was excellent. The location is across the street from Wawel Hill and a short walk to the Old Town Square and its gorgeous sights and many restaurants. Our only complaint was a faint odor in the bathroom.

After initial booking with an other hotel that did not respond to a couple of requests for info. We fortunately found the Hotel Royal site. The service, food & accomodations were excellent, actually if you read the previous reviews #1 & #3 it will confirm our experience at the Royal. Strongly recommend the Hotel Royal for family and friends. This...

We spent two nights at the Hotel Royal. Our room was huge and well furnished. While we did have a room above the street, the trams are not that loud and we had a beautiful view of the Planty. Breakfast was everything you could ask for, and both the bar and restaurant on site were great. I highly recommend this...

I spent two nights in Hotel Royal, Krakow. The room was nice, with high ceiling. Very good location near the Wawel Castle and 10 minutes walk to the Main square. Clean. Breakfast was good. However it is very noisy if you get a room with street view - you could hear the tram and cars at all hours. My window...

On a recent visit to Poland with my brother to see the Auchswitz and Birkenau museums I had the good fortune to stay at the Royal Hotel, Krakow. The hotel is situated under the ramparts of the Wawel castle where the Old Town and the Kazimierz districts meet. The best surprize though was the value of the the hotel restaurant,...

Location, location, location.... This hotel is situated smack in the middle of all of the important sights in Krakow. A 7-10 minute walk to the Old town square (Stare Miasto), and about the same distance to Kazimierz (the jewish district). A lot of the sightseeing-trams also depart from this end of Grodzka street, and some tramroutes stop right outside the...

Great location is Royal's biggest advantage. It's placed literally a stone's throw from Wawel Castle, a 10-minute walk from the Square and the Central train and bus station. It's a perfect place to stay when you plan sightseeing Kraków. For our four-day stay, me and my colleague have booked a two-bed apartment, but on arrival we received a free upgrade...
