Historical Traveler Reviews Regent Hotel Krakow
Excellent service at the Regent.
We booked this hotel from the reviews from trip advisor and were not disappointed. It is in a central location, in the jewish quarter, only 15 minutes walk to the market square. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant several times during our stay, even though there were plenty of other restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We did not need public transport as we were close to everything. Hotel staff booked trips to Auschwitz and the Salt mines for us. If we ever returned to Krakow, we would definately stay at the Regent again.
A great little place
I followed pervious reviewers recommendations on this one and was not disappointed...this is great little place.
It's a little far from the Wawel and old town but certainly a walkable distance. The room was clean and comfortable. The front desk were helpful and breakfast was generous and yummy.
A couple of nice extras were the bottled water (both in our room and in the lobby) and the night guard who made sure we didn't have drunken revelers in the hallways at all hours (plenty of those out on the street).
Regent hotel was excellent
Husband & I went to Krakow for 4 nights in May 2005.
A Taxi from the airport is around 60plz. The bus (192) is out of the terminal & to the right costs 2:50 plz per person & also per item of luggage. It takes you to the Railway station, where you can get a taxi which costs about another 25plz so the taxi option from the airport is really the better option.
We stayed at the RT Regent hotel, which is in Kazamierz, the Jewish district. Hotel was excellent, the reception staff were very helpful. Nice big rooms, brilliant shower & very good breakfast. In fact all the bars & retaurants were very very clean. The Jewish district is peppered with brilliant bars, mainly for the youngsters but that didn't stop us frequenting them till the wee small hours..no loud music just cheap beer & top vodka...which the locals drink with apple juice, sounds weird but is very good. The walk into the old town square takes about 15 mins or you can taxi around very cheaply... or use the trams.
Went to Auschwich using the local train (21 plz each return); then its about 2k out of town you can get a bus or a taxi or even walk.( You can also get the bus from Krakow & it drops you right outside the camp). Take the guided tour about 26plz each ...well worth it for all the info; very sad place but glad we did it, was very very busy had to queue a few times.
Food in Krakow was suprisingly good, had the stuffed cabbage leaves at "Ariel"& the dumplings are good but filling ..share 1 helping!!
I would recommend asking your reception to make reservations for you in the more popular places.Will definitely return to Krakow.
We have just returned from a visit to Krakow, and chose to stay at the Regent after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor.
I have to agree with everything that has been said, the hotel staff are very helpful and speak excellent English. The hotel is spotlessly clean, and the rooms although simple are very well appointed, with all the essentials for your visit.
The hotel is about a 10 walk from the old town and is also very close to the bus and tram routes. The Kazimeirz district has its own restaurants and bars, I would particularly recommend Alchemy for an interesting night out.
A great small hotel
A very nice 3*** hotel which I stayed in for 3 nights, I paid 55 EUR per night for a single room which included a buffet breakfast and also an excursion. Which was good value considering that the same excursion to Auschwitz was 30 EUR.
The hotel staff are extremely friendly and the hotel is quite well located. The room was very clean and tidy, but it lacked pay tv and a minibar in the room.
Well worth staying here, the downside is that if you come from the airport you have to pay a 65 PLN charge one way for a taxi which the hotel is more than happy to organise. This was quite a considerable amount for a relatively short journey.
I would definately return, a wonderful hotel ---- in a beautiful and fascinating city.
Stayed in this hotel from the 22nd to 24th of March 2005. Booked via travelpoland and paid £16 each for bed and breakfast. Hotel was superb with very good staff. If arriving from the central railway station cost of a taxi to the hotel is approx £2.50p. The area around the hotel is currently under development and there is an excellent cafe just past the internet cafe to the left of the hotel. Three course meal approx £5 including a pint of lager.
If staying in Krakow i would recommend this hotel- great location
Fantastic Hotel in a Fantastic City
Super little hotel tucked down a backstreet in the Kazimierz District, South of the city centre. Most main attractions can be reached on foot within 15-20 mins. The hotel is clean, well-decorated and gives the impression of being well cared for. Staff are very helpful, and most speak at least a little English. Reception staff all speak good English. I didn't use the restaurant except at breakfast, but this is an good cold buffet, with a decent, typically "Continental" choice. Rooms are superb; good size, very clean, well presented, with good furnishings. Some of the rooms only have showers, but I guess you can specify a bath if you wish to. There's a couple of UK TV channels, enough to keep you in touch with the world, and the hotel is near an abundance of excellent bars and restaurants. I will certainly go back to this friendly, unpretentious establishment, which offers exceptional value for money.
Lovely Hotel in Great Location
We stayed here at the end of Aug 2004, on a combined trip with Warsaw (got the train from Warsaw to Krakow - 2.5 hours).
The hotel is located inthe Jewish Quarter about 20 minutes walk from the main Market Square of Krakow. The area has it's own square of bars, one block north-east from the hotel. It is away from the crowds of the Old Town, but is within easy walking of the main square, the train station and tour collection points.
The hotel was of a better standard than we expected for a 3*; the staff were excellent and the rooms small but very clean. We paid 30GBP bed and breakfast for the 2 of us (not each) - an absolute bargain for a lovely hotel with a superb buffet breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
Great place to stay, with really friendly staff
We took a short city break to Krakow in July and we stayed at the Regent Hotel, mainly because it was quite cheap and fairly central (it's about a 10 minute walk to the very centre of the town). The hotel itself is a lovely old building (the restaurant is in the basement, which stays beautifully cool), with a little courtyard in the middle which is cool even on the hottest days. Our room (a 3 person room) was really big, and the bathroom was HUGE! But the best thing about this hotel is that the staff are really friendly, and can understand English. They really will go out of their way to help you (one day we wanted to take a trip up to Warsaw, and the lady on reception found out all about the train times for us). This is a great place to stay, and I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to stay in Krakow.
We stayed at the Hotel Regent in september 2003. It was a great hotel.
The staff very accomodating and nothing was too much trouble. Near the Jewish Quarter its about a 15min walk to the town square. The hotel was very clean and bright and we were the only ones there during the weekend. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

... Naturally I have always wanted to be a princess so I felt right at home ;) There are actually many components to the castle and my favorite part was the Cathedral. The one dome was covered completely with real gold and it was so shiny on this sunny day! My favorite myth, and probably the most widely known myth of Krakow is of the Wawel Dragon. It is believed that there was a dragon in a cave beneath the castle and the King said that any person who could get rid of the ...
