It was a brilliant central location.
Included in our booking were a choice of drinks in the evening or lunch. We chose the drinks but were dissapointed to discover that we were unable to use the vouchers on the rooftop bar. If we were to use these vouchers up there we would have stayed for dinner using the upstairs restaurant.
My wife and I had an fantastic stay at the Hotel Pod Wawelem. The hotel is modern and clean. The food is very good. The service was excellent. The room we stayed in was amazing with fantastic views over the castle and river. We had a prime view of the fireworks over the river. The location of the hotel is perfect just a short walk to the center of the Old Town, yet quiet. We have stayed in Krakow many times and this is the best hotel we have stayed in, also very good value for money. We will definately be going back.
The location of the hotel was excellent just 10 minutes through the park and you were at the main market square. The castle was right beside the hotel and we sat on the terrace bar with a nice cold beer watching the people and the boats on the river. At night for being so central it was really quiet and so we got great nights sleep after all our sight seeing. We ate in the Hotel a few times and the food was lovely and also we were given vouchers which enabled us to either our lunch free or drinks at night which was excellent (although you could not use them in the terrace bar which was a bit disappointing). Breakfast was served up to 10:30 which was great as we went a walk up the river first before enjoying a great breakfast with plenty of variety hot and cold food. The room was really clean and the bathroom looked newly decorated. The reception booked us our trips to the salt mines and Auschwitz and also our taxi back to the airport. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel and hope to return again. A*****
the hotel and staff were excellent and looked after my Father and I very well we would definatly stay again.
The roof top terrace/bar/restaurant gave fantastic views of the river and Wawel castle. The staff were very good, always smiling and very attentive. Just remember, this is central Europe and a 10% tip is normal on top of every bill. The bills, however, will not break the bank and given the roof top location with the views it has you could pay twice this rate at another hotel.
Our trip to Krakow was great and the hotel was in a great location and also very good. The breakfast was fine and we had a meal there in the afternoon and it was excellent. Would stay there again and recommend it to other travellers.The "Special Offer" was a good deal. The rooftop terrace was great and the view was lovely.
we liked everything about Hotel pod Wawelem.Our room was first class,clean and near the river and castle.The staff were friendly and very helpful every member of staff from the manager to the cleaner were really nice people.The food was really good as was the roof terrace.We look forward hopefully to returning again,
The only tiny thing and a very little complaint was the tv,the only english channel was bbc worldwide which was not very good CNN would be much better
i have stayed here three times my wife and i love the place and location
We stayed in Krakow for 3 nights at the Hotel Pod Wawelem and we found the hotel to be great. Staff friendly and very helpful, breakfast superb. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean, excellent shower cubicle, the best one we had during our 2 wks in Poland and we stayed at the Marriott in Warsaw! The rooftop restaurant was great and served excellent food and ice-cream (if you like ice-cream then you must sample these) the view was fantastic overlooking the river. Location was good too as was just far enough out of the centre (by the castle) to walk into the centre and trams could be got close too. Really enjoyable stay.
Air-Con didnt really make a difference!
Modern, clean, good bed, nice view over the Wisla, good breakfast, nice price
Good breakfast, situated near Wawel.
No LAN Internet, wi-fi was available rather on staircase or reception (quality of signal in both cases was very low). Air-condition can be turned off only on reception. Reception is not attentive to the guests (for example they can watch movies when guests are present at the reception).
Great location, just about The Wawel. If you are happy, you can have the room with the river view. The best is the roof terrace, with nice restaurant and the panoramic view over the river and city.
An excellent hotel within the city limit and fairly priced. The restaurant within the hotel is also great with good drinks and food selection.The staff is also very friendly and helpfull will definitely recommend this to others
Great location with friendly but unobtrusive staff. Spacious rooms and great breakfast buffet. This was the third time I have stayed here and would recommend it to anyone seeking comfort and good value.
have stayed here before so new it was a good value for money hotel in a great location
