Campanile proved to be a good value for money. We felt welcome from the moment when we walked in to the hotel reception. No issues, no hassle, big and pleasant room. If I have to point out what I was unhappy with, it must be plastic coffee cups. In my opinion, you either provide a reasonable facility for coffee drinkers, or you don't bother at all. Shower curtain looked very grey and tired too.

Excellent Budget Hotel
I normally would have stayed at the Pollera but as it was a budget trip I decided to try the Campanille and was very impressed. As I had a hire car I was able to park in the car park under the building. Rooms are basic but very well equipped and quite spacious and ditto for the bathroom. Hotel itself is clean and the public areas well laid out. Staff were extremely polite and helpful when needed. Honestly cannot fault it at all. Well located about 5 minutes walk from the Stary Rynek and on the edge of the planty. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Cracking in Krakow
As all six of us were first time visitors to Krakow, we were pleased to find a hotel so close to the main square and the city centre. Initial impressions were quite good, the guy on reception was pleasant enough but wasnt the quickest in the world.
That aside, the rooms were basic but clean, bathroom and showers were fine. The only downside would be the lack of wardrobe space in the twin rooms, and the size of the single beds - very small ! We stayed in 305 so our room was the yards of adjacent buildings, but opposite rooms had a great view over the city.
I`d definately recommend this for travellers, for the price we paid we were more than pleased.
We had a brilliant 5 days in Krakow, staying in the Campanile. Our room had a fabulous view over the Planty. The hotel is ideally situated being very near the main square. It was very clean, nice comfy beds, tea and coffee facilities in our room, wonderful breakfasts and very friendly staff. Recommended!!!
A city full of interest
We decided to spend 4 days in Krakow and booked into the Campanile on the recommendation of our daughter who had stayed there previously. It is in an excellent position being near the main square on one side and overlooking the park on the other side. The rooms were clean, and spacious, the staff were pleasant and spoke English and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel. Krakow is a fascinating town, and it is well worth taking one of the "golf buggy" tours which are very inexpensive. The main square is surrounded by restaurants where you can eat outside and watch the world go by. A lovely break
Für ein 2-Sterne Hotel in Ordnung
Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet, zu Fuß nur vier Minuten von Rynek Glówny entfernt. Die Zimmer sind recht einfach, es gibt sehr wenig Platz, um seine Kleidung aufzuhängen. Das Bad war in Ordnung, obwohl das Toilettenpapier schrecklich war! Konnte die Klimaanlage nicht wirklich zum Funktionieren bringen. Die Straße vorm Hotel schien sehr laut zu sein, bis gegen vier Uhr morgens wurde sehr laut geschrien bis die Bahnen wieder fuhren! Frühstück war im Preis inbegriffen, das schien ein guter Wert zu sein. Es gab keine Fernsehsender in englischer Sprache (2*) trotz der Tatsache, dass BBC in der Liste aufgeführt war, aber das hatte ich auch in einem 4-Sterne Hotel in Krakau im letzten Jahr. Die Preise mögen hoch gewesen sein weil der Papst ein paar Tage zuvor in Krakau gewesen war. Es ist in Ordnung für ein einfaches Hotel in ausgezeichneter Lage, aber es kann draußen schon mal laut werden.
Tolle Lage, tolles Preis/Leistungsverhältnis ... da kann man nicht meckern
War hier das Wochenende über und kann an diesem Hotel nichts auszusetzen finden. Es ist ein Hotel im IBIS Stil, guter Wert, gute Lage und allem was man in Krakau braucht. Zum Marktplatz sind es ein paar Minuten aber es gibt viele Bars/Restaurants entlang des Wegs in die man einkehren kann. Der Bahnhof ist fünf Minuten entfernt. Andere Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Wawel und das jüdische Viertel kann man zu Fuß leicht erreichen. Ausgezeichnetes Hotel und ich kann es nicht genug empfehlen.
OK for a two star
The location is excellent, only a four minute walk from the Rynek Glówny. The rooms are fairly basic, with very little hanging space for clothes. Bathroom was fine, tho' the loo paper was pretty horrible! Couldn't get the air con/heating to work very well. The street outside seemed very noisy, with a lot of shouting going on 'til about 4 am, when the trams seemed to start up! Breakfast was included in our rate, but seemed good value.
There was no English language TV channel, despite the BBC being mentioned on the TV listing sheet.
The cost of the hotel (2*) was the same that I paid for a 4* in Budapest at the same time last year. Prices may have been high, because the Pope had visited Kraków a couple of days earlier.
It's fine for a no frills hotel with an excellent location, but can be noisy ouside.
Great location, great value... what is not to like
Just stayed here for the weekend and i really cannot fault this hotel. It is very much an IBIS style hotel, good value, good location and everything you need in Krakow.
It is a few minutes walk to the main square but there are plenty of bars/restaurants along the way to entertain you. Train station is a 5 minutes walk away. Other attractions such as Wawel and Jewish district are within easy walking distance.
Excellent hotel and i cannot recommend it enough.
Excellent Location Near Old Town
My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Campanile with a group and found it excellently located just outside of the old town in a park like setting. Rooms were clean and staff was very helpful.

... hopefully we will get a better sleep. We were so tired and had a quick cuppa before snoozing until 5.30! Only downside is there is nothing much around the hotel and the menu sounded a bit bizarre so we decided to drive further into the city. Hmmm not a good idea. The traffic was horrendous with major traffic jams. What we found odd was that there were NO restaurants on the roads along the way, even in the built up area?? We kept hoping we could just ...
... off the center square @ the Orlowska Townhouse Apartments where Paulina showed us to our apartment for the next 5 days. We have lots of room to spread out and lots to see in Krakow. Today we ate at a 24 hour pierogi place and then caught a 2 1/2 hour English speaking walking tour about the Jewish Quarter (the ghetto and Schindler's factory which now has the WWII museum inside of it). It was here that ...
... I was very uncomfortable because my Grandma was German and I am not sure on how her views and experiences with this topic would be. When I was really young I remember asking my Grandpa (Mom's Dad) how he had received an indentation on his forehead. He stated it was from a bullet in the war - when I asked against who, he stated the Germans. My next question was "like Grandma?" He was quite upset/sad I asked that and insistent that it was not people like my Grandma but ...
... then got back on the coach. Our next stop was the Schindler factory, we got a picture of it, but it was not open yet. On the way back to the old town we drove through the Jewish area again and stopped outside the castle. We walked up the hill to the castle, saw the outside parts of the castle, learnt about the history and some of the sections of the castle. We then walked down hill, went in the direction of the old town and ended up at the cloth hall.
Here the tour ended. I ...
Ahead of us today was a long train journey from Praha to krakow, however due to the lack of direct trains we had the challenge of getting a connecting train.... (And more worryingly Ali was in charge of planning it!) Other than initially choosing a train which didn't actually run on the day we were travelling, he eventually got us aboard the correct train in the correct direction. We had an uneventful journey to ...
