Went on a "jolly boys trip" for a few days in blistering heat. I had one of the economy single rooms, which to be honest was fine. In the blistering heat my room was like an oven, but the ensuite shower was very handy and did the job. Unfortunately for me I was on the front of the building and was awoken by the screeching of trams going past despite the amount of vodka and beer I'd had! I have to say from what I could see, some of the larger rooms looked very pleasant, but it depends what you like. If you like shabby chic, this is for you. If you like totally pristine sparkly finish - don't

The hotel itself harps back to a bygone age and is quite ornate in places and could do with a little TLC in others. The bar was fine as was breakfast, and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The hotel is right next door to a lovely park stroll so that was also pleasant. Attached to the hotel is a restaurant that my friends and I frequented and I have to say I really enjoyed. Standard of food was great for me and the retro diner style also worked.

Where the Royal really scores is its location. Opposite the brooding spectacle of the castle, it's just a short walk to the main square (0.3mile?) past an Aladdins cave of different shops, breathing in the history of medieval Krakow.

Would I stay again?...in a heartbeat

Room Tip: Try to be on the side of the building by the park

Only thing acceptable about this place was the bathroom and the location. Rooms and the general condition of the hotel is nowhere near the official hotel rating. Would unfortunately not recommend this place unless there are absolutely no other options available.

I was worried about our visit having read recent reviews, but I'd already booked so we gave it a chance. It was a very nice hotel. The rooms are quite old, but comfortable, clean and large. We had one with a new bathroom as well. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms could be a bit noisy early evening because of the bar downstairs but quiet after say 11pm. Remember to take a couple of spare tea bags from breakfast as your cups will not be washed nor the tea/coffee replaced. I didn't mind this as we were out most of the time. The location is unbeatable. I'd stay again.

We have spent three days in Royal Hotel, Krakow. The place has a really great location - the Wavel and the main street are really close, the rooms have a hint of old 19th century elegance. The breakfast is really good.
However, the rooms are really really really noisy, they look to two tram stops which go nonstop. The rooms were smelly, there were no electricity in some of the plugs (from three plugs, we had electricity in one...), the fridge was not working and we had to change our cards several times since it was not working and we couldn't get in to our room...

We have just stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It was the worst experience ever. My husband was just laying on the bed and it broke falling to the floor. Our lights blew twice and we had to get it fixed twice. They locked us out of our own room. The sheets did not even fit the bed. One of the ladies on our tour had her room broken into. She had all her cash and passport stolen. Apparently the local police station has an interpreter employed just to take reports from tourists staying at that hotel they get so many. Worst experience ever
