    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Wentzl Krakow

    Fab hotel, best location in Krakow

    from

    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 Guidebooks I bought - Dorling Kindersly and Insight guide so not cover this hotel and must be out of date as they have the Wentzl restuarant situated in the basement which it isn't. The Insight Guide was pulbished in 2006 (?)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.

    Fantatsic find

    from

    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...

    from

    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.

    Loved it!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Great location

    from

    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.

    Best Location

    from

    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

    from

    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).

    Wonderful staff

    from

    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!

    A great hotel

    from

    But the reason we came here was Auschwitz. We found Tomasz Cebulski from Polin Travel Guide and Genealogy on Trip Advisor and I have to say that it was truly a great choice for us. We don’t usually have much time when we travel and we have to make the most of the time we carve out for our adventures. So getting a private guide is often what works best for us. Some are ...

    ... in marriage. So many brave knights in shining armor attempted to defeat the ferocious Smok Wawelski, but none prevail. Until one day a shoemaker from the country side decided to have a go at the dragon. The shoemaker stuffed a lamb with sulphur, and placed it outside, where Smok Wawelski found it and ate it up. But the suphur gave Smok Wawelski a terrible thirst, and so he ran down to the Vistula River and began drinking the water. However the ...

    ... for Krakow: enjoy an ice cream or two, check out the timing of the Krakow Jazz Festival & Jewish Music Festival – it would be wonderful to coincide a visit to the city at these times.

    *Also visit the Musuem Café located on the upper floor of the old Cloth Hall. You will get a fantastic view of all the many diverse activities taking place on the Stare Miasto. It is open until
    late evening.

    *Krakow- put it on your to see list too!

    ... them. It's a very compelling story. The history of Krakow is very dark, there is no escaping it. It really was one of the epicentres of world war 2 for many reasons. I will admit to being somewhat naive, prior to coming, about the full story of Krakow. My crash course in history during the last few days has been intense, but It's an extremely harsh reality I won't soon ...

    The drive was quite interesting, although the terrain is similar to Germany the standard of living was lower and the housing simpler. During ...
