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 Guidebooks I bought - Dorling Kindersly and Insight guide so not cover this hotel and must be out of date as they have the Wentzl restuarant situated in the basement which it isn't. The Insight Guide was pulbished in 2006 (?)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

      Fantatsic find


      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.

      Loved it!


      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.

      Great location


      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


      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).

      Wonderful staff


      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


      What a fantastic hotel.

      Great location,very helpful,friendly staff,amazing view,wonderful restaurant and an amazing price!

      i really cannot recommend this hotel enough.

      everything was just perfect.

I told Pudd all about the meaning of that song to me and what the words mean. The meal we had was excellent too. I ordered a mushroom soup for entrée and spaghetti Napoli as a main. Both were excellent. The Napoli sauce tasted very similar to mum's. I was very impressed so I had to have desert, Jewish cheesecake which ...

His parish church, St. Francis' Basilica is a beautiful Gothic Church. The Archbishops Palace was the Krakow home of Pope John Paul II and he often sat in the window (where his picture is now) and casually conversed with the ...

No, perhaps i am wrong, maybe evil is the right word. it strikes me that there were two groups of people that carried out hitlers plans, those who did what they did as a matter of choice of survival and self preservation; and those who truly enjoyed it.

The doors open up to an impressive gold statue of several figurines, with the alter reaching the top of the cathedral. It was the largest alter in medieval Europe.

      This morning we had the chance to go down into an old salt mine that is located just outside of krakow. The salt mine dates back to the 13th century. It reaches a depth of 327 metres and is over 287 kilometres long. We only really seen about 1% of the entire mine and we were in there for over 2hours..... It is that big that a small group of us actually got a little lost trying to exit the mine. It was quite funny, ...
