My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in January and fell totally in love with Hotel Francuski! Yes, the rooms are "old-fashioned" but what a difference from the bland boxes hotels usually are. We arrived before check in and the staff could not do enough for us - offering us a different room as our was not ready. What...

This hotel is in the heart of Krakow old town just a 5 minute stroll from the main square. The rooms are spacious and well presented and the staff friendly and welcoming. The buffet breakfast is very good and great value. If you want a nice boutique style hotel in central Krakow, you can't do much better than Francisci. Highly...

Very good location. Close to the center - 5 minutes, stations and shopping center - 10 minutes, to the castle- 15 minutes. Very nice staff. Good meal. Good value. Needs more electrical sockets and sound insulation in the room.

My friend and I stayed hew Year (2017). The staff were amazing, so kind and helpful. The room was definitely unusual, but such a change from the 'normal' hotels, comfortable, old fashioned, lovely and clean. Breakfast was amazing with plenty of choice, couldn't have been better. Perfect location for seeing all of the centre of Krakow, which is indeed a...

My wife and I had three nights at the Francuski and after a short wait for our room to be ready we were pleasantly surprised with a second floor suite (208). The room had an old feel to it but was warm and comfortable. The shower was excellent. Breakfast was plentiful and suited all pallets. The hotel is located in...

I have just returned from a 3 day/2 night trip to Krakow with my partner and Hotel Francuski was perfect. We arrived from the airport by train and the hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from Krakow Glowny station and really easy to find. When we arrived the gentleman on reception was very friendly and gave us a map and...

My husband booked 4 nights in Francuski hotel for our first stay in Krakow. On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and our bags were taken to our room. The room was traditional, as expected and was warm and cosy...a little too warm as it turned out. This was soon rectified by opening the windows but unfortunately due to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
French hotel is located in historic centre of Krakow, opposite The Princes Czartoryski Museum, few meters from the old city walls and the Barbakan. Within easy reach there are many galleries, jewelry stores and during tourist season - also a bazaar with works of art, presented by the old defensive wall. Whole French Hotel is filled with old elegance what is already evident upon entering the lobby and impressive staircase with columns. It is the oldest building in Krakow erected immediately as a hotel - was opened in 1912. Interior is influenced by the popular at that time an art deco style. The rooms and suites are decorated with wallpapers, pictures, and graphics showing former Krakow, as well as solid, stylized furniture. The bathrooms are comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean. Some suites may be combined, by which the hotel is recognised among traveling families. Listening to a clock beating in the lobby or sipping tea in a cafe, you can travel in imagination hundred years to the past. The building is famous for almost a hundred years of its restaurant serving delicious Polish cuisine. ... more   less
