Warsaw, Poland
Reviewed 10 October 2014

We agree with other comments on the right (woth going, small rooms, nice breakfast etc.). Parking situation is poor and expensive, traffic in Kraków is heavy. Best would be to come by train. Roof terrasse must have nice view but we preferred eating in the jewish quarter.

Dear Franziska, Thank you for taking the time to write a few sentences regarding your visit to Krakow.

The Hotel Pod Wawelem is in the perfect location for anyone wishing to visit the beautiful Wawel Castle. It is about a one minute walk from the castle walls and also on the river bank. The hotel is fairly new and modern. The room (302) was not the biggest and had a view over a dirty courtyard but it was...

This a very modest, unpretentious but agreeable hotel. The room was smallish but adequate as we only slept in it. We ate once on the rooftop restaurant and enjoyed our meal and the view. We wanted to eat in the smallish main restaurant on another evening but there was a largish tour group in and only 2 waitresses on duty...

We spent 4 nights in this hotel with a puppy. The staff were brilliant, kind, caring and always ready to assist with a smile. They made us feel welcome throughout the stay. The hotel is spotlessly clean and it has the best position next to the castle opposite the river. Whilst walking around saw many other hotels, and each time...

Great location, good wi-fi, clean rooms, nice breakfast, good restaurant on the roof. Near there's an uderground parking, but it's a little bit expensive (91 zloty per day). The only thing we didn't like was that we couldn't check-in earlier than 14.00 and then one of tworooms wasn't ready in time.
