As other reviewers have suggested, the Frania Cafe laundry was a godsend. As a tourist who speaks no Polish it is very, very difficult to have your laundry done in Krakow, and Frania is better than nothing. But that doesn't mean that they're any good. They must have put way too much detergent in my load, because two weeks later... More

We visited this unique bar while we were heading back into the Old Town area after having been in the eclectic Kazimierz District all day. Initially we were took in by the huge illuminated Tyskie sign but on reading the board outside we noticed it was advertised as a pub and laundry combined. Our interest was piqued and we ventured...

Frania Cafe was a 5 minute walk from our hotel. We went for the laundry and had a choice of doing it ourselves or having them do it for us - both options being very reasonable. Being a cold, rainy day, we decided to do it ourselves and while we waited we were able to relax with coffee and cake... More

Stopped in here around 19:30 on our way back from an early dinner. Relaxed and comfortable place to enjoy a coffee and/or drink. Quirky too with the attached laundrette!

It is a great concept, who wouldn't rather hang out in a charming cafe while doing laundry, but they have just a handful of very small machines, not all of them working, and between TA and Lonely Planet and all the other mentions, there are more English speaking travelers than there are facilities.

Great place to have a drink and do your laundry!! Reasonably priced far cheaper than my hotel to do a load. Would strongly recommend!

Great place in Kraków for travelers to do laundry, have a beer, and meet others on the road. Good free wifi, friendly staff, self service or full service options.

Excellent place to do laundry whilst inter railing round Europe. Good prices. It's also great to be able to get a coffee whilst you wait.

All our clothes and sheets from the camper being wet this place saved us! Plus good coffee and sandwiches. Great place, lovely service.

The picture outside was of a man holding a beer, and a pair of knickers. I walked downstairs with trepidation only to find a brightly lit bar - yes with a laundry at the back, but otherwise a couple of rooms decked out like cosy living rooms including sofas, lamps, bookshelves, free wifi, and one Polish beer on tap (which...
