From the moment the hotel staff greeted me by name as I walked to the reception desk, I knew that this hotel would exceed my expectations. Staff are exceptional, diligent and courteous. The hotel looks really classy and appears to be perfectly maintained, my room was very clean and well presented, the cleaners were also friendly and polite (the one... More

The decor in the hotel is unusual and certainly not cosy. A complete mixture of styles. The swimming pool and spa were excellent and full of atmosphere. The staff and especially the front desk were outstanding. Our bedroom was adequate

We took this hotel having seen the inviting photos of the pool. We wondered why it was empty - because IT IS FREEZING as is the lounging area. The visit was marred by a faulty light switch which meant we had to call an engineer out on three of our 5 night stay just to switch the light out. The... More

I found this hotel after reading a newspaper article and trip advisor reviews, the best bit was that it took my avios - airmiles which had been laying unused for too long. We arrived late Sunday evening and rather than find a restaurant we made reservations at the hotel. The hotel itself is an architectural delight combining the very old... More

Short stay at this bespoke hotel, decorations and furnishings very interesting and appears like a rabbits warren in respect of layout. Every turn within the hotel has a different appeal. The SPA / pool is in the cellar and has the most warm welcome from the staff. If you like unusual you will love this hotel which is perfectly situated... More

Had a lovely stay here, great location right off the square. No tea making facilities in the room which is a shame as i like a warm drink when i wake, but everything else great. The pool is lovely. Everywhere spotless. Breakfast everything you need.

Walls in fainted drawings which add an ancient atmosphere. Liked room very much. But somehow, could not sleep well, do not know why. The price is reasonable - we found... More

We spend a great weekend in this hotel, while exploring Krakau. The hotel facilities are excellent and the staff is very friendly and accomodating of all your needs. We stayed in the newer part of the hotel. The room was very spacious and tastefully furnished. There was a lavish bathroom with everything you could possibly need. In general the entire... More

Many good things to say about this hotel: well located to the main square, amazing underground pool, steam room and sauna. Lovely foyer which has been carefully modernised. Great cleaning staff. L'occitane products for the bathroom. Deep bath and good shower. Unfortunately, the suite I was in, felt a little austere and gloomy. When I eventually realised there were far... More
