4/10 Fair

If you are looking for hotel like accommodations, this is not the place for you. This was more like a flat/apartment. We did not see the reception personnel once. We tried calling using the phone they had in the “lobby” and it would not connect. We did not have any coffee pods for day 2 and fortunately we saw a housekeeper and were able to get some. The pillows were horrible. It had no elevator, which we knew would be the case, but it was a challenge getting our luggage up since we had to go up five flights of stairs. They mentioned there was a continental breakfast but we could not find it. Overall, we were disappointed and expected much more. Now, as far as location goes, this place was great. Very close to everything. We walked nearly everywhere.

8/10 Very good

Excellent location, really close to the old town. Self-check in was easy. It was rather loud in the apartament due to tram tracks right outside of our windows but I believe that is the cost of staying in the city centre. Decent Smart TV was a nice touch. Comfortable bathroom and kitchenette. My only complaint would be that at the time of booking I wasn’t aware that they will want to pre-approve the payment a week before our arrival, especially with free cancellation as our chosen option (and before our time to cancel the booking has passed). I could not find that information in any of the confirmation emails I received after booking or in the place’s policies. The way it was worded when I was booking the apartments I was led to believe that I will pay at the check in. Only found out about the need for pre-approved payment when they couldn’t secure money from my account and I received an email that if it is not resolved I will loose my reservation (at that point the same rooms were at twice the price of my booking). That caused some stressful moments but thankfully was resolved easily. I understand that the physical reception was closed due to covid-19 but I think information about pre-approved payment should be made clear to customers at the time of booking. Overall I would definitely recommend this place if you’re staying in Krakow for couple of days.

We had to leave the hotel after Poland was put on lockdown due to coronavirus, the staff were more than happy to assist us in instructions on how to leave the country. All this aside, we were in love with the place almost instantly, we felt right at home, rooms were spacious to stay they were small rooms and could not fault them in any way. Clean and lots of personal touches added to the rooms, we will be returning later on in the year to this exact accommodation once again as we could not imagine staying anywhere else, great location!!

Overall a good stay. Clean and convenient though fairly basic. Staff was helpful. Bed not the most comfortable.

Nice apartments style rooms with a very clean modern kitchen with all facilities. We left a big box of English tea bags and milk for other guests but stick a few essentials in your case to save having to buy when your there. Perfect location

It’s not a fancy place but it’s good for the money. And also quite conveniently located.

Convenient, convenient, convenient.
Immaculately clean, attention to details, fantastic location just outside of Old Town. Everything within walking distance. Front desk extremely helpful and nice when we had questions about the surrounding area. Compact space with plenty of hot water and good water pressure in the shower. Bed was comfortable, I wasn't a fan of the pillows, my wife didn't mind them (personal preferences). Construction on the exterior of the building right by our window was the only thing keeping me from giving this place a perfect score. We were instructed to not turn on the A/C due to the construction, and it was quite warm in the small room while my wife was blow drying and flat ironing her hair (and to be fair, I think it was a bit warmer than usual for this time of year here). We did open the windows, but they were soon taped shut so we could not open them any more. Construction begins at 7am, which put any ideas of sleeping in "to rest." No construction on the weekend. For those light sleepers, like myself, the local train runs all night and our room fronted the road in which the train ran, though less often after midnight. Earplugs were provided (one of the many "attention to details."), which don't do me any good Overall a fantastic stay, I just could've done with less noise as I am a VERY light sleeper.
