Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Wentzl Krakow
Fab hotel, best location in Krakow
Stayed for 3 nights in November. was concerned at the pictures on the hotel website as the rooms look a bit old fashioned, but based on reviews booked anyway. Was very impressed by the hotel - seems to have been newly refurbished, our bathroom was immaculate. Sheets changed daily, hotel breakfast was great, staff very friendly. View from the room was fabulous, best we have had. Only downside was that the square is being resurfaced on one side so was a bit of a mess, but this should be done in the next couple of weeks. Guidebooks I bought - Dorling Kindersly and Insight guide so not cover this hotel and must be out of date as they have the Wentzl restuarant situated in the basement which it isn't. The Insight Guide was pulbished in 2006 (?)
Krakow is very beautiful and historic - go there before the stag parties take it over and turn it into Prague 2.
Stayed at the Wentzl from 10th - 14th November 2005 and having read all the other reviews I can honestly say it was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the service was exceptional.We dined in the restaurant one evening and the food was wonderful and beautifully presented and we didn't think that it was all that expensive.The hotel is located right on the market square in an excellent position. The hotel has no lift so you should bear that in mind when booking. All in all a good choice and we would definately return to the hotel and to Krakow.
A great hotel but...
This great hotel should be 4 stars but does not have a lift. You need to be fit to climb those stairs. The restaurant is one of the best in Krakow and reservations are required. The only minus point is that the walls are wafer thin. You can hear everything that is going on in the room next to you. This of course for some could be a plus! However it has put us off returning to the Wentzl. Bit of a pity really.
This is a fabulous old hotel with all the modern conveniences. Great service, free internet for laptop users in your room. The service was exceptional, our room fabulous, the breakfasts to die for. They are adding 6 more rooms, for a total of 18 and adding an elevator, we were told, early next year. What more can I say!!! Krakow is fabulous but I'd come just to stay at this Hotel!!
Room With a View
3 nights at the Wentzl. What a glorious location! View of Market Square, with great people watching. I was concerned about noise, but the windows are well insulated. The room was comfortable and well appointed, although the artwork on the walls was very unusual for a hotel. There is no elevator here, so 3 long flights of stairs does add up after several times a day. The restaurant is excellent; they are very professional and helpful. Indeed, the staff of the hotel was very efficient, and willing to run errands for me (buy stamps, etc.) and arrange a private car for Auschwitz. Again, the location can not be beat, and the eccentricities of the hotel were exceedingly charming in my book.
Directly on the main square, you can stand at your window for hours and watch the action. And walking up 84 steps to your room will soon work off the effects of all the Polish dumplings. Do not worry if you are a light sleeper, the very thick double windows block out all nocturnal noises.
This is the only hotel that looks onto the central plaza. We had a terrific view from our third floor room. Caveat: there is no elevator so if you have health reasons preventing you from climbing stairs or are just lazy, you might want to think twice. Also, the walls seem a little thin. Still, well worth it for the view and location.
Surelt the best and most unique hotel in cracow
This hotel has the best view in cracow overlooking the market square. The rooms are spotlessy clean the showers are very efficient. the breakfast room and restaurant are fit for royalty (check out the hotel photos they have been there). The staff are courteous and most helpful which is a rarity in some places around cracow. This hotel represents true value for money. It only has twelve rooms and no lifts so not suitable for immobile people. Even though our room overlooked the square it was quiet and warm. (room has air con and radiator heating. The restaurant has food cooked and prepared to an exceptionally high standard at an exception value for money. our 3 course meal complete with drinks was £48. The meal was one of the best we have had anywhere in the world (and we have travelled) Even if you dont stay here have a meal, but be sure to book, guests get 11% discount. The rates include breakfast which consists of FRESH fruit salads, cereals, meats and cheese, breads and a selection of dishes cooked fresh (eggs vienna was our favourite).
Staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble for them - including getting their baklery to deliver me some of their wonderful breakfast bread to bring back to the UK! Beds are a bit hard... rooms were really warm (-20 outside), water hot, resturant good but not cheap by Polish standards - fish soup to be particularly recommended!

... had to take a deep breath when we left and Agnes had to remind us that it was a good thing that we went so we'd see how none of this should ever happen again. On a lighter note, we made it into Kraków at about 9 p.m. After unloading our luggage and bringing it to our rooms, we had dinner in the hotel. It consisted of a cabbage salad of some sort with pork and some dumplings. A good way to end the ...
The hotel we are staying in, the Pod Roza in Krakow is not far from the main town square and is nice but not as plush as the hotel in Warsaw. We had breakfast then went on our city tour at 9 AM. Like the other towns we had a local guide for the morning. First stop was the Jewish section of Kazimierz. We saw the first temple established in Krakow and the only one that ...
... the main street down. A group of us found a small restaurant and we had lunch here. I had some great pasta. Then back to the main square where we meet up with the rest of the group and went back to the coach.
Back on the coach we continued on. I listened to my ipod and watched the scenery. Just past the border we stopped at a service station for a quick toilet ...
... up and ate lunch! Funny episode here, we bought what we thought was a carton of chocolate milk but when we opened it up, it was a runny yoghurt with chocolate chips in it!! Drank it anyway & believe it will help the digestive system. PM - Had another look through Cloth Hall, the huge hall with 60 stalls in the middle of the main market square. Lots of amber jewellery on display there, very hard to choose a nice piece. Headed down to the Tourist Info office to ...
... a very fine busking soprano; the architecture and spires and streets and alleyways were terrific; we had a nice chat with a lady in a shop who had large tattoos on her thighs. I think that our highlight was venturing inside a fine looking ancient building, which turned out to be the oldest part of the university, with a fantastic enclosed courtyard. As it happened, students were demonstrating scientific things, and we enjoyed meeting and talking to two conservators ...
