    Parking quite away, cumbersome valet

  • Group of friends

    Excelent location, helpfull staff, nice size of the room

    Would like more light in the room and bathroom, poor breakfast, no frsh juice

  • Family with children
    9.4

    The design was elegant, gourmet food in the rooftop restaurant and at breakfast were excellent (especially the fresh fruit, coffee and eggs), service very good, and location in the heart of Krakow could not have been better.

    The handsome modern bath was not user-friendly - nowhere for soap, no handles to help elderly in and out, nowhere to put towels, only two small pegs for hanging clothes, too short for tall people, no stool or chair. The shower also lacked any soap rack or handle for balancing on the slippery floor. (These are not complaints, just suggestions to make a superb hotel even better.) The bathroom should also have a paper handkerchief dispenser. If possible more surface and a chair for ladies to use as a dressing table for makeup.

    The dinner we had in the hotel restaurant was one of the most outstanding meals we've had in a long time...and quite reasonably priced. The pool/spa area was quite unique and very impressive in design and decoration.

    The roof-top terrace would have been a nice place to enjoy an afternoon/early evening drink, but it lacked even an inch of shade so was unusable for us...with serious concerns about skin cancer. Even the area directly in front of the bar had a clear canopy, so offered no "shade."

    Room. Staff. Breakfasts. Spa. Close to square where enjoyed great meals

    This is a truly 5 star hotel with the service, facilities and luxurious environment you would expect from this classy hotel. We booked a suite and were upgraded to the luxury suite which was gorgeous and massive. A real unforgettable experience with very attentive staff of a 5 star hotel caliber. Thank you very much for making our stay so enjoyable.

    On one of the 2 night stay, what we believed to be a club opposite the hotel was a little noisy. But nothing major.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Excellent service spa staff was really doing their best for us to enjoy the time. Breakfast is a gourmet and concert of tastes. Home style open bar was great!

    The boking via Booked.net u have not peovided an invoice and you charged all the money upfront.

  • Couple

    The hotel was excellently located and within walking distance of many major sights in Krakow, and just off the market square. The buffet breakfast was of an excellent standard and was regularly replenished. The rooms were large and spacious, and the bathroom well equipped with plenty of towels and toiletries. The fitness area, pools, sauna and salt room were very inviting, but it must be noted the pools are really too small for any proper swimming.

    The hotel has the potential to be an excellent 5 star establishment, it certainly already charges 5 star prices, but needs to pay a little more attention to detail in some areas. The bed, normally a center point for any room was disappointing, there were not even any pillows. We found two in the cupboard, asked for more, but never received any. The duvet was thin and there was nothing luxurious about slipping into bed. The dressing gowns were ripped and old looking and glasses in the room were badly chipped. Water was not replenished after our day of arrival and we were unable to get the heating to work in the room, despite seeking assistance so we were cold for the duration of our stay.

    stary is skillful belnd of old buildings and modern design. staff were very helpful. room was a good size. the loss of my credit card during the trip was handled very professionally at check out.

    coffee had to ordered from restaurant. no do not disturb signs. our "view" was a painted brick wall. cooked breakfast was disappointing.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The hotel's design and spa facilities are wonderful and the location next to the Rynek Glowny can't be beat.

    I love modern design hotels and understand a preference for the minimalist aesthetic but we honestly could have used a few more lights inside the hotel room, especially in the interior rooms! It was very dark at times.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent service and facilities, central to Krakow and the main shopping area.

  • Family with children

    Wonderfull pool area

    Personel on duty very nice and helpfull but to much unformal for such high expencive hotel. They are talking about their private thinks on the desktop or in restaurant and only in "meantime" and a little " by the way" are for a guests.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    We thought it was very comfortable. Loved the design and the central location Enjoyed spa and pool and the breakfast was very enjoyable. It was really enjoyable to come back to in the evening Overall staff very pleasant and efficient Great value for money

    There wasnt anything that we didnt like the only thing that concerned us was that when we went to check out the staff member said according to the hotel we had not shown up? couldnt understand this email when we got home and there was a mention that we were considered a no show and we were concerned about charges because of the confusion

    Excellent breakfast. Very friendly hotel, helpful staff

    No tea making facilities in the room. No real hotel guide, including no tv operation guide.
