    I liked everything about the hotel -- the room, the location, the breakfast. I've stayed in many hotels but this is one of my favorites.

    I enjoyed the atmosphere of the common spaces, which mixed both old and modern styles.

    This hotel was very uncomfortable. We stayed twice. The first time, the room we were given had a wall hanging right next to the bed. My spouse and I both were allergic to it. We had hoped the place had air conditioning, but it did not. We hoped that the window would be sufficient to cool off the room, but it was not. We both had a poor night's sleep due to heat and allergies. The second time was also during a very warm day. We checked in with the rest of the group. I asked if there was a room with air conditioning available, but the two rooms were in use. I asked if there was a room with a fan available, but was told I would not want to stay up there. We were given a room with two single beds -- the thought of sleeping dorm style with my spouse in the incredible heat was depressing. We decided to check ourselves out of the hotel (paying for the night) and check ourselves into the less convenient Best Western a few kilometers away. It was a much better use of our money, even though we had to pay for a hotel room twice.

    I stayed as a tourist, and the location was excellent. The hotel is very cozy and has art work everywhere. It's a very interesting place in itself. It has an elevator!

    Room was large and comfortable. Excellent breakfast buffet.

    Some of the staff were somewhat unfriendly. Website advertised airport shuttle - untrue.

    The atomsphere was very old world, it was like stepping back in time - with all the modern conveniences of course! The staff made it comforting to return after a long day of walking.

    Fabulous

    Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. This is a quirky hotel with history. Would definitely stay there again. It is steps away from local tram, the centre, Jewish city and supermarket! Good base and we found it to be very quiet.

    That although it was no smoking, people could smoke in the foyer of the hotel which you had to walk through and the smell/smoke obviously spreads into the hotel. Same breakfast buffet everyday and not obvious what else you could have. Only when staff offered scrambled eggs did we know that was available.

    Superb

    I liked the feel of authenticity. A small, cultural hotel, with friendly staff and an awesome breakfast. Clean! I would definitely go back and suggest it to my friends and family.

    There was a group of very rowdy men who created a lot of noise at 2am. They left cigarette butts in the hall way and continued the next night. Not the hotel's fault, but it seemed to go on past an acceptable length of time.

    Very good

    The staff were all very nice. The location is good, very close to Wawel. Everything was clean, if a little worn.

    The room was really tiny. I was by myself (and even I felt a bit cramped in there) but the room I was given was a double. Frankly, if two people were to have it, I have no idea how they would fit. The bed was really small for a double, there was hardly any room around it, and nowhere to put a suitcase etc.

    Hotel staff was outstanding,they make you feel like you are the family. Everyone was on proffesional level and more.I only will change one thing-(menu for dinner)-it is specific for only certain people.

    Towels need to be wash with sent-(thay smell)
