“Spotless rooms with hearty breakfast”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

While this hotel is right next to PKP train lines, the trains did not disturb my sleep.

Hotel staff were friendlz and efficient.

The room was excellent" high ceilinged, with plentz of room for two twin beds and a two seater couch along with good lighting and a television with a limited range of cable TV channels.

The shower worked well. There was plentz of space to store luggage.

Breakfast was ably provided for with nice pastries being a highlight.

At the bargain single rate of +éí Polish zlotz booked through German rail website www.bahn.de, this hotel was a bargin as it is only ěéé metres if that from Krakow Glowny railway station although the platforms are a further 100 metres away.

Trams and the Old Town are within similar easy walking distance.

Spotless rooms with plenty for breakfast. Ideally situated for Market Square,shops etc. Don't be concerned about the trains ,our room was close to the line but we were so warm and cosy after sightseeing days it only served to lull us to sleep.Shower room was immaculate.No kettles in room but hot/cold water dispensers on each landing so no major hardship there either.

This is a perfectly located hotel in Krakow. Less than 5 minutes walk from the main railway and bus station (Krakow Glowny) and only 10 minutes to the Main Market square. The hotel is extremely clean and well kept with a nice buffet breakfast including scrambled eggs and hot dogs...! The only downside is, being so close to the railway station, if you get a room facing onto the tracks, there's some train noise, but it's not too disturbing... I loved it here and would definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the railway tracks

Hotel in a great location. Lovely spotless rooms.Excellent breakfast. On arrival we thought the noise of the trains would keep us awake and were really concerned. However you get used to them and we slept well every night. We thought the staff could have been more friendly. One young man on reception was lovely always smiling and helpful. The cleaners were friendly too. Would stay again you cant really grumble the price was cheap. Dont have any concerns about the train noise its really not that bad.

Room Tip: 33 was great large beautiful room.

Just returned from a weekend in Krakow. This hotel has a great central location BUT is only yards from the train tracks in and out of Krakow Glowny railway station! Thankfully trains stop shortly after midnight and don't start running again until 0400! Apart from that, a great little hotel with a fine buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the railway track.
