I stayed at this hotel for my second visit to Kraków in 2005. I travelled in the company of five and four of us stayed in double rooms with ensuite bathrooms and one in a single room with shared bathroom in the hall. We were all satisfied with this clean, affordable hotel.

The beds were comfortable and the breakfast buffet big with just about everything, also the vegatarian was content. If you want to you can have freshly scrambled eggs or omelet a la minute.

The staff was very helpful especially the girls in the restaurant. Everything was very clean and tidy, also the shared bathrooms with shower.

The location, in the middle of communications, was great. Railwaystation, trams, busstop, and a couple of minutes walk to the old town. Even though this city is so much more than the old town with Rynek Glówny (Big square) it is a good point of reference.

Unique Qualities: Big hotel with a history (built 1884).
Big platce = lot´s of people to meet.
Interestingly furnished with red carpets on old parquet floors in the halls.
Garden restaurant under the stars (the garden is the result of years of careful cultivation (where do they keep the plants in wintertime?).
Funny guy in the reception with thick brown moustache who remembers every guest roomnumber by heart (how does he do it?).
Good location. Easy walk to The Main Square, Rynek Glówny
Tasty fried slightly smoked shepherds cheese with cranberries and garlic-bread (with beer) in the restaurant.
Good staff.
