Beautiful elegant hotel on the edge of the old town, 5 mins from main square. Very nice suite style rooms with comfortable bed and deep bath. Good buffet breakfast and very attentive staff. A perfect representation in a fascinating city. Well worth staying.

We had a lovely surprise on arrival to find that we had been upgraded to a suite with our own balcony. The layout was quirky and tastefully decorated in old style charm. The bed was really comfortable and having bathrobes in the room was also very handy. The staff were really friendly and the breakfast was plentiful with lots of... More

I adored staying here for a short mini break. The hotel is perfectly located - 3 mins walk from krakow's main station just within the old, beautiful, atmospheric walls. You can go anywhere by foot from here and it really feels like you are jumping into the past. The hotel was built in 1912 and you don't get the impression... More

We stayed here in during a recent trip to Krakow. This is a magnificent hotel. The exterior does not prepare you for the beautiful entrance, reception area. Sweeping staircases rise four flights. Apart from utilising the elevator with our luggage we used the stairs everytime we went to and from our room. We had a room that included a sitting... More

Firstly I think tripadvisor needs a good rating, which is probably what I would have given this. The location is excellent, at the top of the square, easy to walk to the train station ( we got the train from the airport then walked to the hotel for 8 Zloty each), easy walk to the castle etc. The rooms were...

A beautiful city , plenty to see and do . The hotel was around the corner from the main square which was a hive of activity night and day . We were able to sit outside in the evening with blankets around our knees and have a meal and drink and people watch.

We knew this hotel was going to be special when the doorman opened the door for us with a smiling face and helpful hand. Our room was beautiful, high ceiling, free bath robes and slippers laid out on the bed, free bottles of water which were changed each morning, we had a big balcony in our room (204) which was...

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
