... auto serwis" and told us how to get there. It is such a relief when the language barrier can be overcome.
Anna is living proof of the value of language education. She speaks English, Polish, German, French, Italian and Spanish in various degrees. Language is such a dreadful obstacle. It is enormously frustrating meeting nice people, and not being able to talk to them. English is not as widely spoken as you might imagine, and certainly not to a level ...
... the same club (and clearly still having a good time) until 9:30 in the morning, or approximately 12 hours past our normal bedtime. We were lucky that the apartment was well insulated for sound, so our sleep wasn't disturbed.
We did our usual power-sightseeing tour on our first day in Krakow, which was done at a quite enjoyable pace (i.e. slow). We checked out Wawel Castle and Krakow Cathedral, the Cloth Hall and Church of St. Mary located ...
... ride, I fell straight to sleep and before I knew it we were there. Arriving in Krakow at 7am meant we had to spend some time at the train station, we had breakfast at a cafe and then arranged our tickets out of Krakow to Berlin. The hotel could not check us in until 2pm and had no room for us to keep our luggage so we spent time in the train station's mall - where I ended up buying some clothes. By midday we had enough and ate some lunch before catching a taxi towards ...
Our first walking tour was called the Royal walking tour, mainly because it only shows you the Old Town (surrounded by my favorite word - Planty - aka a park) We walked through the Old Town, learning about Krakow history from Medival times to Now. We saw a whole lot of churches, and a castle. There is even a bugler who plays a song every hour four times (one time our each window at the top ...
... castle is, as you would expect, an impressive and beautiful church. To me, however, it seemed strange to have the interior filled with amazingly ornate tombs. They were scattered all over the interior of the church. The combination of the main portion of the cathedral where masses are held and the royal tombs below, hold the remains of all but four of Poland's 45 rulers. One tomb, in red marble, belongs to King ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pod Wawelem Hotel Krakow
Era la prima volta che visitavamo Cracovia. Questo hotel è incantevole, ubicato in una zona tranquilla vicino al castello di Wavel e a pochi passi dal centro città. È un piccolo hotel moderno, con personale cordiale, colazione fantastica e menu serale 'a la carte' a prezzi molto ragionevoli nel suo ristorante.
¡Un hotel económico y con clase!
La ubicación es fantástica, vale la pena pagar el dinero extra por las vistas que tiene sobre el castillo. El personal fue de lo más atento y amable. El desayuno fue excelente. Es uno de los hoteles más limpios en los que he estado nunca. El cuarto de baño estaba impoluto. Lo recomendaría sin dudarlo.
Un hotel economico ma di classe!!
Posizione meraviglosa, vale la pena pagare il supplemento per la vista del castello. Il personale era estremamente disponibile e cordiale, la colazione eccellente. È uno degli hotel più puliti in cui sia mai stato. Il bagno era assolutamente immacolato. Lo consiglio senza esitazioni.
Budget hotel with class!!
Wonderful location, well worth paying the extra for castle view. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, breakfast excellent , it is one of the cleanest hotels we have ever come across - bathroom absolutely spotless. Would definitely recommend it.
Don't miss out on this little gem
I have just returned today having stayed for 5 nights at the Pod Wawelem hotel. It was true value for money. It's fresh, modern and the standard of accommodation by far exceeded our expectations. It is in a quiet location at the foot of Wawel Castle and only ten minutes walk from the main square. The staff are very helpful and paid great attention to making sure you enjoyed your stay. Breakfast is a generous mix of english and continental fare and leaves you with no need to eat again until dinner in the evening. This is the first time I have posted a hotel review on any website but felt I had to recommend that Pod Wawelem is the place to stay in Krakow if you want a good quality hotel and not pay a fortune for the pleasure. Enjoy, I dare you !!!
Ten minutes walk maximum to Old Krakow, once you know the way - we took a wrong turning on the first day and got lost but thats just us, if you take a map youll see its only one left turn and youre there. Right next to the Royal Castle, cleaner than most UK hotels I've stayed in, very friendly helpful staff, they booked trips for us organised taxi to airport etc. Look out for Zofia and Irina - they are stars
The Hotel Pod Wawelem is a small hotel located by Wawel Castle & overlooking the river and only 10 mins walk to Old Town Square so perfectly located.
We stayed for 2 nights in the first weekend of Dec. The hotel is right next to the royal castle and about a 5-10 mins walk to the main square, in a quiet part of town. I really liked the location.
Clean, Modern, Great Location
Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Pod Wawelem. The hotel is very modern and clean with a cafe terrace on the 6th floor and a bar/restaurant on the ground floor. Breakfast was a nice surprise - expecting the usual cold meat and cheese but had a wide variety for all tastes including an (almost) full english breakfast. The room was lovely and spacious with plenty of storage space for your luggage. The hotel is also in an excellent location - literally just next to Wawel Hill and the Royal Castle and only about a 10 minute walk to Krakow's Main Market Square (Rynek Glowny). Despite its central location, I found the hotel to be very quiet and peaceful and all rooms are air-conditioned so you can adjust the temperature to suit. All in all a nice hotel in a great location.
