Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Kazimierz Krakow
Good value but no frills
We had four nights in the Kazimierz Hotel last week and found it good value but there were one or two things that need to be addressed. The beds were clean and comfortable but the sheets covering the mattresses were too small and there was no other mattress protector so by morning I was sleeping on the bare mattress. I found that quite off-putting. Secondly, the towels had to be the hardest and scratchiest I have ever encountered. You could exfoliate without difficulty! Breakfast was fine and the coffee was good quality. Staff in the dining area were very pleasant. The hotel is well situated and we found some lovely restaurants nearby. The Monarchi was a 5 minute away and the food was delicious. try the pancakes stuffed with goulash for starters and the steak with pepper sauce-a generous portion of top quality fillet steak perfectly cooked.
Could be worse but could be better
Just returned form a week in Krakow. It was sunny and warm and despite extensive roadworks in and around the city centre we enjoyed our stay in Krakow.
Hotel itself is in a convenient location in Jewish quarter and within a short walking distance from the old town centre. The hotel reception offered to book a taxi from the airport for 50 but we took bus 192 to Dvorec Glowny and tram from there (number 3 or 13) to tram stop Miodowa.
There was a good selection of hot and cold food at the breakfast buffet table but if you want your sausages to be adequately warm come early.
As no one else mentioned this I suspect we were unlucky with our room (No. 401). The washbasin in our bathroom was almost unusable. It was a small WC style corner variety with glass shelf over it. Apart from making up beds and finding sweets placed on them there was no other evidence of the cleaning staff activity during the week we stayed in.
So, if you are going to stay in the hotel make sure you do not choose room No. 401.
I thought I should give some feedback myself seeing as I used this website so much before I went to Krakow. I'd certainly recommend both the Hotel Kazimierz and the city. For the price (around £115 for five nights) I was delighted with my room which had TV, radio and shower, etc. It was clean and just what I needed. The reception staff were friendly on the whole and very helpful. The location of the hotel is excellent - in an interesting part of town and so close to the castle and the main square (nice 10 minute walk or so). Having not been on my own on a holiday before, I was perhaps a little apprehensive but need not have been. The Polish people are mostly very friendly, whether you're in a museum, round the shops, in restaurants or out on the lash into the early hours, and a lot of the younger ones speak good English. Just as well as I found Polish difficult to master! Krakow is a good size to walk around and it's easy to get to the main places of interest. My feet were aching by the end though, understandably a lot of the pavements aren't the best and some of the puddles on the first few days, when it tipped down, were more like lakes! Take some good walking shoes (and maybe some flippers)! A taxi from the airport to the centre is very reasonable and reliable (in my experience). The prices in Krakow are amazingly cheap and I struggled to get rid of my spending money. I do think this city is a gem and I would not hesitate to stay at the Hotel Kazimierz again. Cheers.
Just about OK
Stayed for 3 nights and on the first had interupted sleep. We had the room next to the main stair so could constantly hear people coming up and down until about 3 in the morning. This was Saturday night, Sunday and Monday nights were quiet. Everything worked in the room but it was a bit dull and dated. The en-suite looked much nicer but smelt of drains. The food was edible. Overall the place is nothing special but cheap so I feel we got what we paid for.
Great hotel, great location
This hotel is great, you just cannot complain for the price. I paid £25 per room per night for bed and breakfast, and the rooms were very clean and smelled fresh. Our room was very quiet, no street noise at all, but just a few metres from some really nice bars and some fantastic Jewish restaurants.
It's about 5 minutes walk from Wawel Hill, then another 5 to the main square, so you don't need to use public transport to anywhere in the city as it's all very compact. I would happily recommend this hotel.
Lot to offer
This hotel was very reasonable and had a lot to offer. It's in the Jewish quarter of krakow which is about 10 minutes from the centre. It may be alittle difficult to find first, especially if your using the bus service from the airport which stops just outside the city center. Very clean and modern the hotel is just a few years old. The rooms are a good size with a lovely big shower room and underfloor heating. Breakfast is hot and cold buffet, you can eat as much as you want. I would certainly stay there again. The reception can organise trips or print off train time tables for you. The centre looked great especially at christmas with wooden huts and hot food. Plenty of shops and walks around. Very reasonable prices.
Warm and friendly environment
lovely small hotel in the jewish quarter which is within walking distance of all major areas of interest in this city. the staff were extremely courteous and helpful, the rooms were spotless and inviting and breakfast was fantastic with lots of choice and accomodating wait staff. i would return to this city and this hotel and recommend it without reservation......
Excellent value for money
Stayed at The Kazimierz Hotel in November 2005. Warm, comfortable room with plenty of storage space. Nice breakfast, friendly staff and very well located for all attractions and bars. Terrific value.
Small but adequate
We have recently returned from a short trip to Krakow, Poland where we stayed in the Hotel Kazimierz. It was well located in the old Jewish section and within walking distance of most major attractions. We stayed in a triple room which we found to be adequate and found the staff very friendly and helpful. It was very good value for money at £45 a night for a triple room including a buffet breakfast which offered a bountiful choice. We would recommend this hotel as good down to earth value.
Basic, but everything you need
Stayed here recently. Found the hotel facilites to be adequate, if a little basic. Breakfast included in the room price and offers a good selection for a small hotel. Hotel is a short but pleasant walk away from the old town (10 mins). If walking is not your go, then any tram on Krakowska will get you close to where you want to go. The Jewish area (Kazimierz) where the hotel is situated has plenty to offer in itself with a plethora of bars and eateries. A couple to recommend - Kolanko No.6 (on Jozefa) serves up wicked crepes for a very reasonable price and can highly recommend Bagelmama (next to the hotel) for a lunchtime stop of soup, chilli con carne and/or bagels.

So we checked in, enjoyed our little bit of luxury and refreshed for our upcoming 5 days in what many friends have told us, is their favourite city in the world. I must add that Wroclaw has a huge old town square, which could easily compete with Bruges, Bergen, Amsterdam, Stockholm and some Croatian villages. That means it's really good. These old towns have become almost a stock standard now, but it will be one of things we ...

The direct reason for the establishment of the camp was the fact that mass arrests of Poles were increasing beyond the capacity of existing "local" prisons. Initially, Auschwitz was to be one more concentration camp of the type that the Nazis had been setting up since the early 1930s. It functioned in this role throughout its existence, even when, beginning in 1942, it also became the largest of the death ...

The next morning we set off to do the free walking tour, with Megan we had met in the hostel the night before. There was light rainfall outside, but as ever, that didn't put us off! We headed for St. Mary's Church in the main market square, the meeting point for the tour. Like most walking tours, it involved some sightseeing, some ...
... wall before leaving the mines completely! I am proud of that one. The mines though on a more serious note had a massive hall inside it, all of the statues and carvings are made from salt! In the hall alone they had so many sculptures and wall carvings it was hard to take them all in, they had even produced a carving of the last supper! Seriously look it up. They had underground lakes in there as well and it was just so impressive, in the 2 and half hours we were there we ...
