Hotel Columbus in Cracow welcomes you in style. Whether visiting from very close, or far away, you will appreciate the personalized attention, warmth and sophistication of our boutique Columbus. The building which was built in the 1930`s, was transformed into this luxurious 24 room boutique hotel in 2007. Lastly a complete renovation was finished in December 2013. Hotel is arranged in a colonial style with wooden exotic furniture and warm colours. All of our comfortably renovated rooms are equipped with: mini bars, complimentary mineral water, individually controlled air-conditioning and comfy beds. Complimentary Internet access is provided in all rooms. If you wish to forget about the hustle and bustle of city life we invite you to our courtyard.

Our go to hotel in Kraków this lovely friendly independent hotel is so well situated to explore Kazimierz which for our money is the best part of the city but trams to the main centre stop outside the hotel and you can buy tickets from the machine. Otherwise it’s a gentle 30 minute walk. The staff and lovely with great communication. The rooms and clean and comfortable with fridge, mini bar and safe but no kettle. Breakfast is very nice and there is a light and airy breakfast room and outside terrace. Hotel can arrange a transfer for the airport for 100 zlotys.

We stayed here for the first time for my birthday weekend,it was however our fourth visit to Krakow. Really lovely hotel with friendly helpful staff. Our room was big,clean and comfortable. It’s location is good with a nice walk from the hotel to the main square,in the past we have stayed in the square but actually enjoyed the extra exercise. Breakfast was good and plenty of it too. Whilst we were there we did have a lovely take away but had it in our room,speaking to other guests the next morning they said the staff allowed them to eat in the breakfast room which was brilliant,they were very accommodating in this strange time where the restaurants and bars were closed. The only thing we missed having was a kettle in our room so we could have hot drinks. The reception staff were brilliant,booking us a taxi to the airport as we could no longer take the train. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to other travellers. Was sad to see Krakow so quiet,hope things get back to some sort of normal soon and tourism back to this usually bustling city.

We stayed at this hotel from the 6th March for 4 nights with my parents and I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough. The reception staff were very helpful and were able to give advice on places to go. The rooms were spotlessly clean and were extremely comfortable. The hotel was in a great location and close to bars and restaurants. I was expecting a continental breakfast, however there was a great choice, including sausage, eggs and bacon. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights at start of March. Prior to our visit I emailed hotel and they were so helpful...sending tours information and booking them in advance for us. I had requested and got a room at back of hotel...extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and very quiet. Breakfast was included and had good selectiom of cold & hot food. Staff on reception and in the restaurant/bar very pleasant and helpful. Location of this hotel is fantastic...walking distance of Main Square and literally around the corner from Jewish Quarter. Would certainly recommend and would stay again without hesitation.
