Profile: Krakow Old Town

Profile: Krakow Old Town

The Old Town, located in the city center, is one of Krakow’s prime visitor attractions, with iconic landmarks such as St Mary’s Basilica drawing the crowds. The glorious Renaissance Cloth Hall houses gift shops and restaurants at street level and a grand art gallery on the upper floor dedicated to 19th-century Polish art.

The best way to explore the Old Town is on foot. Starting from St Florian’s Church, follow the Royal Road past the 15th-century Krakow Barbican, down the lively shopping artery of Florianska Street to the main square. Continue up Wawel Hill for panoramic views from the castle.

    Great location in the Old Town

    A bit of a bother accessing the hostel, but the location is great. There were several rooms sharing the kitchen and the bathroom, which was not cleaned nor re-supplied in a timely manner. The “front” door to this “suite” of sorts did not lock. What was nice was that this central location was not excessively loud even though there is a bar downstairs in the patio.

    Lamentablemente solo sugiero que dejaran de ahorrar en calefacción y agua caliente a principios de marzo las temperaturas oscilan -1 o -2 grados y esta gente no encendió en ninguna noche y el agua caliente inexistente...

    Horriblement bruillant! La chambre donne sur une terrasse de bar. On entend les cris, la musique et les portes qui claquent. De plus nous partagions la salle de bain avec la chambre voisine. Les occupants étaient très bruyants et laissaient chaque jour dans la salle de bain dans un état pitoyable... je ne recommande pas du tout cet établissement malgré le fait qu’il soit a bon prix et bien placé.

    Hostel ma bardzo dobrą lokalizację i możliwość przetrzymania roweru. Natomiast goście hotelowi narzekają na brak gorącej wody w niektórych łazienkach późną nocą. Poza tym szkoda, że szafki w pokojach się nie zamykają choć kiedyś to było możliwe, gdyż posiadają zamki. Dodatkowo w używanej przeze mnie szafce czuć było nieprzyjemny zapach po poprzednich gościach. Szkoda marnować potencjał jaki kryje w sobie tak dobra lokalizacja w centrum. Mimo wszystko dzięki za nocleg.

    Muy bien ubicado.No es tan lindo como en las foto

    En las fotos se ve muchísimo más lujoso de lo que es. Mucho Photoshop. Solo lo recomiendo por la ubicación. Nos dieron una toalla de mano como toallón.

    Egy éjszaka a városközpontban

    Tiszta, rendezett szoba és fürdőszoba. Az ágyak kicsit közel vannak egymáshoz, és csak egy fürdőszoba van 13 emberre, amit kevesellek. A szobában nincs zárható szekrény, viszont a recepción le tudtam adni a holmim. A személyzet kedves és segítőkész. Elhelyezkedés szempontjából felülmúlhatatlan! Egy éjszakára, kevés csomaggal tökéletes.

    Bättre läge för priset går inte att hitta. Trevlig personal. Man får inte vara för egocentrisk då väggarna är tunna och toaletten delades.
