This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The overall impression is really good in terms of location and value for money first of all.
Separate rooms are good if you prefer hotel-like accommodation for reasonable money.

Caution! If you stay in a room facing the street, it may be really noisy. Don't stay in room #1. It faces crowded road crossing with tram lines going in all directions )))

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed here last week from the 1st of July to the 8th of July. I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and the service. I had a single room on the top floor with a very clean ensuite. There is no lift but I knew that before I arrived and considered that I needed the excercise anyway. The girl on reception helped me to my room with my luggage when I arrived, I did not expect this as it was up another two flights of stairs. Everyone is very helpful there and I would not hesitate in booking again. I have only given 4 stars for facilities as I was thirsty and forgot to buy water in the shop. I asked in reception if they sold water and they did not. Think they could make a killing if they had a fridge there with drinks. Maybe they don't have the room. Breakfast was included in the price and it was a very nice continental style breakfast. You are able to make tea and coffee etc as you want in the kitchen. There is no TV in the room but what do you expect for approx £12 per night. I needed a budget break and this was excellent. I will be booking again for next year. I love the area anyway as I have always stayed there for the Jewish Festival. I am not Jewish but the festival is amazing and I was welcomed.

I think it is the very good accomodation. For 40 PLN per person, my girlfriend and I had breakfast, all necessary things in room, kettle, cups, tea/coffee/sugar and sheared bathroom. It was really cool. Very polite and handsome;) receptionists helped us in all questions about Krakow.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The location is excelent, less than 5 minutes to Wavel Castle, right in the Jewish quarter, 10 minutes from the Main Square, 4 convenient tram stations to the main train station. Really close to restaurants, bakeries, milk bars and fast food places.

The room I stayed in (single bathroom ensuite) was quite small, but reasonable for one person, I guess. Quite bright, with a skylight, which made it pretty difficult to sleep late. The bathroom was clean a plenty of hot water all the time.
The room needed a bit of vacuming, the floor (laminated wood) quite dusty.
It was on the top floor of a 3 storey building so a lot of climbing in and out.
No complints about quiet, didn't really run into many people.
Free Internet available at the reception, made use of it extensively without any problems.
Staff was nice, helpful, even though not all spoke English all that well.
Breakfast pretty basic.

All in all, even though I would look for something better next time, I can't say I am sorry I stayed there. The price was nice and the location allowed me to walk everywhere I wanted to go. If they threw in a little improvements (a biot cleaner, more attention to details, nicer pillows) it would actually be reasonable.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The weather was very warm and a fan in the room would help. No disturbance from anyone during my stay. Friendly and cheerful service.
