This is a great hotel in a great location of Kraków. It is very clean and the staff are extremely helpful, the food and drink is superb. The hotel is by the river side, has great roof top views and is close to the city centre square.

This is a fantastic hotel. It's spotlessly clean, modern and the rooms are well decorated. The rooftop bar makes it something really special too. The breakfasts were nice and we ate dinner in the hotel too one night. The meals were all good, but the desserts were amazing - try the apple pie. They have a well stocked bar and... More

Great location, value for money & friendly staff. Happily stay there again. Had room 306 which had balcony & river view. Roof top terrace also has great view of river & Wawel castle. "pod" means "under" & the hotel is under the castle.

Location of hotel is brilliant, right by the river, and the castle and not too far from main square. We had a room at the side onto the road with great views, my sister however had a room the other side, which looked onto a lift area. Rooftop bar was really nice, and rooms were spotless and comfortable, with bottled... More

The hotel was maintained very well the rooms are clean and big for Europe including a coffee and tea spot. Beds are clean and comfy enough, all feels good and new, and it's just besides the wawel castle, the wisla river and 5 minutes walk from the old city center. Breakfast is good I surely recommend it.
