A nice hotel with very friendly staff and excellent location: in the old town and 10 minutes walk from the train station Kraków Główny. The breakfast was also good with a great cheese selection and a lot of other things. To access our rooms we've been given a key (not a card) but it was fine. Our room was very...

The room in this elegant old hotel was spacious (virtually a suite) and very clean. The hotel was a great pleasure to stay in – the décor, layout, atmosphere and amenities made it a very satisfactory choice indeed. Breakfasts were plentiful and well prepared. All the staff were unfailingly polite, friendly and helpful. Staying in a hotel like this made...

Decent sized room, with lots of wardrobe space and big bathroom with ample hot water (sometimes a woorry in old hotels). Slippers provided and bathrobes which is a nice touch, especially as I think the carpet has seen better days. Lift worked well, which again can be unusual in a old hotel. Location is brilliant, as a short walk to...

Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. It is amazing. An absolutely stunning establishment sympathetically and tastefully decorated in art deco style. The staircase is exquisite. The staff are warm and welcoming and cannot do enough to look after you. The breakfast is out of this world. Perfectly located in the Old Town. A must stay for anyone visiting Krakow.

I cant fault the staff and the the old look about the place in the heart of Krakow. Breakfast was very nice and what they lacked in plumbing due to old pipe work they made up with bending over backwards to help and advise with the stay. I would recommend 100%

Located just a few minutes walk from the old square, the hotel is perfectly placed for sightseeing and soaking up the atmosphere. The generously sized rooms are classically decorated and well appointed with nicely fitted bathrooms and comfortable beds. The staircase is magnificent and both the interior and exterior of the building ooze style. The staff are efficient, friendly and...

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.

The building is famous for almost a hundred years of its restaurant serving delicious Polish cuisine. ... more   less
