We rented 2 rooms in this hotel, one for me and my wife and another for my two daughters. The hotel has been recently renovated and is nice and clean with comfortable beds.

I recently stayed in Hotel Columbus with a couple of friends for a short break in Krakow and this hotel was flawless. We had a triple room at the front of the hotel and, despite the noise of the trams and road outside with the windows open, had no problem sleeping with them shut. The whole hotel was very clean,...
