Very nice hotel located in the city center with spectacular views of Wawel Castle and the river. Small clean cozy room, rich breakfast, beautiful rooftop restaurant and friendly staff.
The Hotel Pod Wawelem was located conveniently at the foot of castle overlooking the river and within walking distance of the main old town square, the Jewish Quarter and many great cafes and restaurants with exceptional food at a value price. The room was quiet, comfortable, and spacious by European standards with a larger bathroom. The room had a small usable balcony overlooking the river and the castle. Next door was a 5 star US chain hotel at a significantly higher price. The staff was impressive and always available and extremely helpful whether assisting with the room safe, booking tours, arranging transfers, or suggesting that a box lunch could be arranged gratis since we would miss breakfast due to an early tour or an early flight. Breakfast was a treasure and included in our rate. The buffet was overflowing with multiple options from cereal to croissant to eggs to quiche to sausages to salads... even little suares of delicious cheesecake... Plus the coffee was quite good. While this hotel is rated 3 stars it is 10 star value with 10 star customer service in a perfect location within walking distance od many attractions and terrific restaurants.
The location was superb for the centre of Warsaw. The breakfast was very good.
All was very good.
Maybe the best location in Krakow - at the river, with view of the Castle, and only 15min walk from the inner city center; and also rather easily accessible by car.
I wish the roof terrace restaurant had longer opening hours, and that they had a bar section so that guests could sit there and enjoy the view also when all the dinner tables are all occupied.
Location is a key!And nice staff both in the reception and in the restaurant at the top. Amazing views!
AC system is very old and not very user friendly.Also our phone didn’t work in room 502
