Editor's review

Believe it or not the famous cosmetics mogul, Helena Rubinstein, was actually born on this very square where you can now find the Rubinstein Hotel: sleepy Szeroka Street in Kazimierz! Safe to say Mrs. Rubinstein would have approved of this chic and elegantly made-up hotel that has become one of the more prominent buildings in this neck of the woods. A blend of old and new, the hotel seems to effortlessly fit into its charismatic surroundings in the Old Jewish Quarter, whilst showing its guests all the luxuries of the 21st century. The chance to sip a cocktail on the fourth floor terrace is worth the room price alone.

Great hotel, great location, very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent but found the lunch and dinner menu limited and somewhat expensive compared to other restaurants in the quarter. Definitely recommend.

The hotel is on the main street in the Jewish Quarter but only 15 mins walk from the main square. Hotel was very unique--old world with modern additions

Truly beautiful hotel with loads of charm! I loved the glass elevator that took us to our room. Staff very helpful and great breakfast very satisfying

Rubinstein Hotel is situated in the middle of vibrant Kazimierz district, yet our room was quiet. It was also spacious and unique. Beds very comfy, breakfast absolutely fine.

Lovely hotel, very friendly staff and very good value .

L.B from France Reply Apr 5th, 2011

Our room was a gem with beautifully painted ceiling. The hotel itself is full of character and run very professionally. I would say a unique place!

A very nice hotel, with a high standard.

Lizzie from United Kingdom Reply Dec 2nd, 2010

Very high standard. Our room was charming. I loved the restaurant with a glass ceiling and the jacuzzi. Top service!

Friendly, relaxed and extremely comfortable, but also elegantly furnished; perhaps a little expensive. My one very minor criticism is that the curtains in my room were not quite wide enough for the windows.

I have to say that our stay at hotel Rubinstein was a very good choice of hotel. I was very impressed with the bathroom!

Raymond from United Kingdom Reply Feb 5th, 2010

Absolutely marvelous!! we stayed in suites and they are just amazing. Breakfast excellent and really nice staff. we will definitely be back. The distance is about 15 minutes to the old town but it is definitely worth it to be in such nice room and pay half of this what you are paying in the city centre. the cellars are also beautiful

The hotel was really lovely in a great location. The staff was very helpful with all our requests. The hotel restaurant was also very nice. I only wish our weather was as nice as the hotel, but the hotel did supply umbrellas.

Just got back from an amazing weekend in Krakow. Was tipping down when we arrived but Sat and Sun glorious. Couldn't get in where we'd planned but this was perhaps even better than the one we'd wanted. Pretty location and pretty restaurant on the bottom floor with glass roof.

Orla from Ireland Reply Feb 9th, 2009

Very elegant hotel on a great historic square. We loved this part of Krakow! Szeroka street in particular has a great feel. The rest of Kazimierz is also wonderful :) The hotel itself was all we needed. Recommended!

Janet and Mike Rawlings from United Kingdom Reply Jan 21st, 2009

What a find! We were recommended this by a friend and it turned out to be a real star. On a very pretty and important square. Lovely bedrooms

Nigel & Sally from United Kingdom Reply Dec 22nd, 2008

Excellent. Seems very new and immaculate. Nicely decorated and very historic part of town. Would recommend it!

J. & V. Lowther from United States Reply Nov 6th, 2008

We found this immaculate and on a beautiful square in kazimirsh. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Particularly Szara. Would recommend.

Petra Coffey from United Kingdom Reply Oct 21st, 2008

A super hotel. Location was great.

Ewa from United Kingdom Reply Jun 1st, 2008

Not sure about this place having been sensitively refurbished as the previous poster says! The owners of this hotel are infamous in Krakow for having completely ignored the planning law in such a historic area by adding on floors to an old building without the appropriate permission and endangering the neighbouring buildings in the process. The Rubenstein family have stuck two fingers up at the law and the environment and are now just cashing in. Nice people.

Alison Nicholls from United Kingdom Reply Jun 1st, 2008

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in this hotel and thought it was absolutely perfect. The interior was immaculate, the shower room put our own to shame with it's modern, efficient and attractive finish and the bed was very comfortable. Inside the hotel it has been reburbished sensitively and the square it is situated in is full of charm. We loved the Jewish quarter which didn't attract the enormous crowd of the market square and would advise any stag parties to keep clear of this lovely area to keep it as nice as it is. Highly recommended

We stayed for 4 nights and five days. From the moment of our very late arrival, just before mid-night, we were made welcome! Our room was at the front of the hotel, overlooking Szeroka, magnificantly appointed. The bathroom was underfloor heated - most welcome first thing in the morning! The whole staff were bright, cheerful and always happy to help. Their English was better than my stumbling Polish - but they never interupted and waited til I hade made a fool of my self before politely helping. I onece asked for a 'corkscrew' so I could fix my spectacles! There were big grins and helped me find a screwdriver. The hotel restaurant is a wonderful place. We ate the on 3 occasions - such was the quality of the food and the service. I cannot find fault!! We sgall be returming in December 2008. Looking forward to that. Thank you all so much.

Immaculate, classy and very hospitable. We shall return.

Silke from Germany Reply Feb 13th, 2008

Kazimierz is full of charm and so is the Rubinstein Hotel. Our stay was wonderful!

Lee & Heather from United Kingdom Reply Dec 22nd, 2007

Classy hotel with freindly staff. Could not find any faults with the place at all.

Barb from United States Reply Nov 17th, 2007

I really enjoyed our stay at your hotel. Very elegant and good location. I love all the little eateries you can find in the Kazimierz Jewish quarter - hope to be back soon!
