Editor's review

This new addition to Cracow's hotel scene aims to fill a gap in the market - for comfortable accommodation at great value right in the heart of the historic Old Town. Globtroter is a high-standard conversion of a traditional courtyard annexe which offers 9 rooms and 3 apartments each with private bathroom, television and telephone, at exceptionally favourable prices. It is a combination sure to make this a popular place to stay. Friendly staff, fluent in English, are genuinely eager to make visitors really welcome.

Fantastic accommodation. So close to everything. Warm when the temperatures out are minus 4. Staff very helpful and obliging. Organised our train transfer to hotel. Organised a couple of day trips. Thanks heaps Globtrotter we will certainly recommend you to anyone coming to Krakow. Hotel was about a 4 min walk to main square and had a shop just a few metres from the front door.

Fourth time in four years in Kraków. Each visit fantastic and each hotel fine. I will however return to the Globtroter without doubt. Location incredible and yet an oasis of peace and calm. Staff friendly and helpful. The character of the Globtroter is best described as roomy, homely and relaxing.

Great airport transfers, easy check-in and large comfortable room. Wonderful location -perfect for just walking around the city and for any day trips outside the city. Lots of good restaurants close by, and Museums everywhere. A lovely City with lovely people and well with a visit

Nathalie from France Reply Feb 17th, 2016

Très bel hôtel, simple, confortable, très bien situé : qualité-prix au top ! Nous étions logés, (notre fille, mon mari et moi-même) dans une chambre très spacieuse (pour 5 personnes) pour un prix extrêmement raisonnable. La gentillesse de toute l'équipe (présente 24h/24) pour nous aider dans la réservation de nos visites (notamment pour les camps d'Auswitch) nous a ravi et leurs efforts incontestables pour faire en sorte que nous nous comprenions (malgré mon anglais approximatif) a été un réel enchantement. Cet hôtel nous avait été conseillé : et bien à notre tour d'en faire les éloges ... séjour de 6 nuits et que des compliments pour cet hôtel qui nous a conquis.

We are glad we found the Globtroter Guest House in Krakow. It was centrally located, charming, clean, quiet, affordable, and the staff was helpful and knowledgeable. At first it was a little hard to find, but we got some good directions from the staff. We also enjoyed the plants in the garden below our unit and on our balcony – a perfect place to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine after a busy day of sightseeing. There was also a refrigerator available in the hallway, and a community room with a computer available for our use. The management was very accommodating. We would certainly stay here again if ever we were in Krakow, and would certainly recommend this guest house to our friends.

Inger Anne Rekdal from Norway Reply Jun 2nd, 2015

I stayed at Globtroter Guesthouse for 6 nights in May - and I've booked a second stay for 7 nights in June as well. I like this guesthouse :) ! I've been to Krakow on 10 vacations so far (just love this city !) and I've stayed in different accommodations. I like the Globetroter for several reasons. It is central, close to the Planty and close the Market Place (Rynek Glowny). It is a bit withdrawn from streets/noise - so peace and tranquillity can be found after a busy day out in the beautiful city. There is a garden - and I love flowers ! It is hard to get a room with a balcony in Krakow, but Globetroter has got that as well. This is an old building but it has got charm. The restaurant on the square close by is very pleasant. Prices for stay at the Globtroter are resonable.

Claire Troman from United Kingdom Reply Apr 15th, 2015

I've stayed in this place 4 times, each time with a different group of friends / partner and I've never been disappointed. Love love love it! The staff are soooo friendly and speak impeccable English. They will organise trips, transfers and recommend places to eat/drink. The guesthouse itself is very central, literally a minute from the main square and I can't believe it is so cheap. The rooms are warm in the winter and cool in the summer (I've stayed in February, April, July and December) and they're cosy and clean with everything you need. If you are looking for 5 star luxury with a gym and sauna and swimming pool then this isn't right for you, but if you're looking for somewhere central with great staff and cheap as chips go for it, you can't be disappointed! P.s. Directly over the road on your left next to the Alkohole shop is a great restaurant that serves amazing dumpling!

Excellent budget accommodation in a really great location. Spacious rooms and a big bathroom, and comfortable beds. Very friendly, helpful staff and the hotel's airport transfer is recommended - I took a taxi on arrival but the airport transfer for my departure was slightly cheaper and very punctual.

It's been out third time in the hotel. The location is prime but more important is the hospitality and treatment you get there. You can really count you will get all the help one might expect when staying in a hotel. We will for sure stay there next time we visit Karków which hopefully will be this summer.

Ecologist appreciable philosophy. Near to the old city center (really! Count two steps and you'll be there) Absolutely recommended ... and spend the day walking around the town. Amazing place

Nick from United Kingdom Reply Nov 25th, 2014

This is an ideal, low cost, but comfortable place to stay right in the heart of Krakow. Ideally situated and within walking distance of most of the major sightseeing destinations in the city. In the centre of everything and yet remarkably peaceful, with a lovely little garden and balconies to sit out on. Good free WiFi too. The staff are always friendly and helpful and can give plenty of local information. I have returned several times and will continue to do so.

Beverley from Australia Reply Nov 20th, 2014

I was very happy indeed to stay at Globtroter Guest House in late September after 7 years! Same accommodation: 2 very big rooms, same great staff. When you arrive, press the relevant button on the wall (reception is available 24 hrs), and gain entry through a heavy door from the street. Beyond the door and up a passage is a lovely garden. There is also a lovely small square with fountains surrounded by bars and restaurants outside the front door. The situation could not be better - a 2 minute walk to the world-famous Market Square and Cloth Hall. Great restaurants everywhere. We ate great food at the markets in the Market Square. Be sure to visit the very well displayed excavations (Rynek Underground) under the Cloth Hall. The tea and coffee facilities were very welcome too. Great value, and even better, I received a discount for return business.

Gary from United States Reply Sep 28th, 2014

Great value, location & staff. Just off the main square. Stayed in third floor room. Enjoyed having a beer on the porch. Beds very comfortable. Restaurants close by for breakfast or dinner. While there is a bar close by had no trouble getting to sleep each night. Would definitely stay there again.

Wir waren froh, mit dem Globtroter das ideale Guest House für unseren Kurzaufenthalt in Krakau zu haben. Absolut zuverlässiger und sehr guter Service, unkomplziertes Procedere für extra Wünsche, sehr gute Lage im Zentrum der Altstadt. Das stets kompetente Team war immer und zu jeder Zeit ansprechbar und hilfsbereit. Danke für eine tolle Zeit in Krakau - beim nächsten Mal kommen wir unbedingt wieder!

MaryAnn & Rick from United States Reply Sep 25th, 2014

We found the Globtroter to be the perfect place for our three nights in Krakow. It is located within minutes of the main old town square yet quiet and peaceful for a good nights sleep. We found the staff to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful with all of our questions, referred us to the best restaurants, helped us navigate the city, booked our tours, and sent us to the best Polish pottery stores! Our room was clean and comfortable, opening up to the green courtyard which is also the entry way to the guesthouse. We couldn't have asked for anything more, all within a very reasonable rate.

Giuseppe B from Italy Reply Sep 2nd, 2014

Clean, nice, beautiful, convenient to all points of view. The promptness in responding, kindness and availability have been consistent from the first contact. When we return to Krakow will always be the benchmark logistic choose. Pulito, curato, bello, conveniente da tutti i punti di vista. La celerità nelle risposte, la gentilezza e la disponibilità sono state costanti sin dal primo contatto. Quando torniamo a Cracovia sarà sempre il punto di riferimento logistico che sceglieremo.

Sherrie Sons from United States Reply Jul 20th, 2014

My room was quite spacious with lots of shelving and space to unpack your suitcase, The hot pot in the room and the community fridge made it easy to have breakfast in the room. There are certainly plenty of breakfast options nearby but I enjoyed the convenience of having a quiet breakfast in the room. To echo other reviews, the location is wonderfully convenient and the staff was fantastic. The front desk staff was so kind and helpful with questions and made tour and airport transportation arrangements very easy. I never expect anyone to carry my suitcase but I certainly appreciated the young man at the desk grabbing my suitcase and carrying it upstairs. He even met me on the stairs when I was coming down to check out and took my suitcase! So kind and thoughtful! I had a lovely stay and would definitely stay here again. My only advice is to make sure you get specific directions from the guest house on how to find them since they are a bit hidden and several local businesses on the same square were not aware of their location.

Marinus Van beek from Canada Reply Jun 23rd, 2014

Our stay from June 2 to 6 was excellent. The staff in the Globetrotter Hotel was most helpful in every way. We certainly will recommend this friendly guest house to many of our friends in Canada.

Nancy from United States Reply May 28th, 2014

We loved our stay at the Globtroter. It was on a little square just off the main Old Town Square. There was a grocery store across the street, and we had access to a refrigerator. Just on the other side of the square was the park that rings the city and access to tram and bus lines. It was very quiet as well. The room felt spacious because of its high ceilings. A heated rack in the bathroom meant we could wash our clothes and dry them overnight.The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Lara T. from Italy Reply May 21st, 2014

Strategically located a few steps from the Market square, nice atmosphere, good service and assistance from the staff in providing info and suggestions. Large and comfortable bedroom and bathroom. Other comforts include a large reading room with guides, books, ... I would certainly recommend it. Posizione strategica, a due passi dalla Piazza del Mercato, bella atmosfera, buon servizio e disponibilità dello staff nel fornire informazioni. Camera e bagno spaziosi e confortevoli, così come le zone comuni (anche sala lettura con guide e libri). Lo consiglio assolutamente.

Dani from United Kingdom Reply May 16th, 2014

The best place to stay in Krakow!!! Our group of seventeen has just returned to the UK having had an amazing few days in Krakow - much enhanced by The Globtroter Hotel and all their staff, who made various arrangements for us for our trips and activities. - booking concert and museum tour tickets and transport to Auschwitz, The Salt Mine etc. The hotel is very clean, central and quiet and the beds are very comfortable indeed. Over the years I have brought many friends to Krakow and having tried lots of other hotels and apartments ( which have all been good) I would always book The Globtroter as my first choice.

Mike from United Kingdom Reply Apr 10th, 2014

Simple clean and comfortable accomodation. Spacious bedroom and bathroom with everything you would expect. even TV. Right in the centre of the old town with the cental square being 2 minutes walk away. Right outside the front door you have a choice of severaL good bars and restaurants within yards yet the hotel is beautifully quiet and peaceful. Staff in the hotel were ever so helpful and organised trips and taxis at good rates. Also lots of good local advice. Great value and I wouldn't look anywhere else

David from United States Reply Mar 13th, 2014

Globetroter’s location is ideal if you are looking for something near Krakow’s central square. It has simple but pleasant accommodations, and an abundance of nearby bakeries and restaurants. The staff is friendly and helpful. From the street side, you would assume that this might be noisy or cramped - it does share an entrance with a nightclub and isn't easy to identify as a hotel from the outside - but once you enter the hotel through the courtyard, you are in a very pleasant, secluded spot, yet within a few minutes of all of Krakow’s major sites. Rooms are simple but pleasant and clean. It is not readily accessible for individuals with handicaps, but if you don't mind carrying your luggage up the stairs, it is a wonderful place.

I recently stayed at the Globetroter in Krakow. It was a snowy, cold couple nights in late January 2013, but the Globetroter was warm and inviting. The room I stayed in had a high ceiling with wooden beams and it was clean and comfortable and very attractive. The hotel itself is located very close to the main square and it is a perfect location. The staff was very friendly as well. This place would be a great bargain at twice the price. Eric

In the lobby you can ask for iron, hair dryer and they have the clothe washing service. The staff recommended a restaurant to us to have dinner and it was great, it is called "Starej Kuchni", it is just a few doors from the hotel. and almost in front of that restaurant is another one which is very cheap, beautiful and had great polish food "Polskie Smaki". I would definitively stay there again.

A že personál je ochotný a vlídný, Není to žádný Hilton, ale to je dobře. O to je zde pobyt příjemnější. Rád doporučuji.

The Globtroter came well recommended by our Rick Steves guidebook and we were not at all disappointed. We had 4 rooms and 9 guests. Our rooms were very comfortable and we particularly appreciated the quiet courtyard location since there was a music festival in town and we were insulated from the noise. The staff was very helpful in booking a tour to Auschwitz and the value vs the cost was very attractive.

This hotel is positioned in its own square which has plenty to offer itself. Owners very hlpful in organising trips,and recommening eating out places.We have stayed in the depths of winter and the hotel was always kept warm. We have just come back ( August 38c) and the hotel was kept comfortably cool.Extremely friendly hotel, well situated and comforable. We would not even look for anywhere else to stay in Krakow

Nancy from United States Reply Aug 10th, 2013

After three weeks traveling around Central Europe, Krakow was my favorite destination & the Globtroter was definitely a factor. Aneta enthusiastically welcomed me upon check-in & provided so much information on affordable restaurants & activities that I thought my head would burst. She even hauled my 22 kg bag up 2 flights of stairs to my room! The next morning, Piotr offered yet more valuable info & made my reservation for Auschwitz for the following morning. On my 3rd day, with their patient assistance, I even took the city bus to the Wieliczka Salt Mine where I enjoyed mixing it up with the locals. The only downside of the room is that the bed was fairly uncomfortable.

veronika from United States Reply Aug 1st, 2013

Glorious Krakow and the welcoming Globtroter--what a wonderful combination!! The room was comfortable, the staff more than accommodating, friendly and helpful, and the location as convenient as one could want--affordable cafes and restaurants, a short walk to the main square, and easy access to activities and public transportation!! As a Polish/American I smiled and remembered my grandmother every time I walked through the lovely garden on my way to and from my walks around town. I have only glowing reports of my week at the Globtroter and will certainly stay there on my next visit.

Walt and Ginny from United States Reply Jul 22nd, 2013

We stayed 3 nights at Globtroter in mid June and couldn't have been happier. Quiet comfortable room, great value, excellent location on a little square lined with restaurants and cafes, and staff that was not only professional and efficient, but more hospitable than imaginable. Impeccable English also should you have skipped your Polish classes. The hotel is an easy 5 minute walk from the main square in Krakow and from there the city is yours to explore. We visited Munich, Prague, Budapest and Vienna as well, and Krakow is on the must-do-again list. The Globtroter is where we'll stay again.

Hunter from United States Reply Jul 17th, 2013

This place was hands down the friendliest most accommodating hotel my wife and have ever stayed in and we've stayed in a lot of hotels around the world. It's right in a nice little square that contains a couple of very good very affordable restaurants. It's clean, quiet, and cozy with large cute rooms. We arrived at around 0630 on the night train from Budapest and since our room was empty they let us check in right away which is unheard of in hotels. I can't say enough good stuff about this place. If your in Krakow give the Globetrotter a try.

We had a wonderful stay at the Globtroter hotel. The staff we fabulous - very efficient and helpful, and fluent in English - phew! They helped out with great advise and printing our boarding passes for our next flight. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the lovely cleaning fairy came each day and smartened things up for us. The communication prior to our visit was fantastic, with great instructions on how to find the Hotel - great for weary travellers new on the ground and a bit unsure about our bearings. The gardens were beautiful, and the location was fab - just around the corner from Main Square, and lots of restaurants and drinking spots right outside the door. Thanks Globtroter, I highly recommend you to every one travelling to Krakow.

Я проживал в отеле Globetroter с 22-24 февраля. Своим выбором доволен и не жалею, что остановился здесь. Этот уютный отель удобно расположен в самом центре старого города, и в то же время близко до остановок городского и железнодорожного транспорта. Очень тихое место.С удовольствием слушал звон колоколов на башне Марьяцкого костела и сигналы горниста. Персонал вежливый, готовый оказать максимально возможную помощь во всех вопросах.

Чудове місто! Чудовий відпочинок! Чудовий Globtroter! Всі ми знаємо, що найкращі подорожі - це спонтанні подорожі. Такою виявилася і наша мандрівка до прекрасного, величного міста Краків. Зібравшись з друзями суботнім вечором ми вирішили, що за будь-яку ціну повинні за півтора тижня пити каву у сусідній Польщі. При усій "спрощеності" процедури оформлення польської візи, складнощі усе ж таки були. Основна з них була у тому, щоб в короткий час знайти місце для проживання (хотілось комфортне і миле до душі, за гарну ціну) при цьому необхідно було наперед забронювати його на необхідну кількість днів, здійснивши попередню оплату і отримавши підтвердження з того ж готелю чи хостелу. Нам пощастило, в цій ситуації доля вирішила бути на нашій стороні. З десятка хостелів які ми знайшли на букінгу, один був поза конкуренцією...чудове місце розташування,по домашньому зручні кімнати, ні одного негативного відгуку від відвідувачів. І з десятка написаних листів, найпершими на наш заклик відгукнувся саме той, такий цікавий для нас варіант, запропонувавши як вигідні умови для проживання так і оперативне надання будь-яких документів для консульства. Як вже зрозуміло з нами в переписку вступили працівники Globtroter. Їх підтримка і оперативність, дозволила нам перебороти існуючу бюрократію і вже за тиждень, після 14 годинного переїзду на авто - змучені але щасливі, що досягли мети, ми пройшовши через казковий дворик заселились в Globtroter. Хостел знаходиться на одній із сторін історичної частини Кракова, в трьох хвилинах ходу від площі Ринок. Дизайн хостелу виконаний у вінтажному стилі, теплі персикові стіни, елементи дерева у декорі та квіти створювали просто невимовний затишок. При цьому все знаходилось в ідеальному порядку, в тому числі і в номерах хостелу. З перших хвилин перебування ми з друзями відчули себе як у дома і це відчуття було з нами усі дні. Дякуємо керівництву та колективу хостелу Globtroter, за теплий прийом, за любов до своєї справи і повагу до своїх гостей. Ми обов᾽язково повернемося!!!! І усім радимо послідувати нашому прикладу P.S. We hope to see you soon, Globtroter :-)

Wonderful place. I stayed in a 1Bed room. Comfortable beds, no bugs, room service was a very polite lady. reception was friendly and helpful with suggestions and booking tours. Dont take any tours without asking their suggestions. I was helped by Rafael and another lady(forgot her name, sorry :\ ) several times. They have tie-ups with excellent companies. and Also will give you honest suggestion on prices. Bathrooms are very clean. Which is very important. They have a resourceful library with maps and a computer. They have ubuntu on the machine, I was surprised and impressed!! Location is amazing. Right in the center of activity. Rynek is within 100 meters of walking. Jazz clubs, bars, and easy food access. I saw the view of the front door on google maps - street view (very old image, the construction in front is already finished). It has changed now. They have a small board outside, which is not as obvious to spot. A bigger banner will definitely help but Google maps better update the view as well. The charge on your credit card is done at the end of your stay. Not like American hotels where you pay upfront. Just FYI, so you don't get surprised like me. I had no discomforts and was beyond content with the stay. :) Will definitely recommend this place.

Excellent, have stayed at Globtroter three times and can't fault it. Clean, comfortable, showers are good, rooms spacious and staff helpful. The location is perfect.

I have traveled to Krakow on business many times and stayed in most of the hotels in the city. Frankly, none compare for quality of friendly service and price to Globetrotter. This was my first stay, having been recommended by a friend who lives in Krakow, it most certainly won't be my last. A fantastic location 2 mins from main square surrounded by lots of eating places.

Dear Globtroter, My 21 year old daughter and I had an absolutely delightful stay with you this summer. The room was very comfortable, quiet, spacious and clean. The location was great being right off a city square, and only a few blocks to the center of the city. All the beautiful sites of Krakow and all of its many great restaurants were within easy walking distance. Every member of the hotel staff was very gracious and helpful. They all spoke excellent English, and were not put off by the fact that I knew only a few words in Polish. They were very helpful in recommending restaurants and booking great tours for us to take during our stay. I know that some readers of reviews tend to be suspect of reviews which contain nothing but compliments. Therefore, I’ve thought hard about what could have been done to possibly make our stay with you even more enjoyable. The only thing I could come up with is that it would have been nice if we had the option of having a portable fan in our room. It was quite warm in Krakow during our stay, and a fan would have helped to cool the room down at night. Thank you again! We will recommend you to anyone we learn is contemplating a trip to Krakow.

A perfect budget hotel, brilliant location, clean spacious rooms, wifi, computer room and friendly staff. Highly recommended!

Took the free shuttle bus from the airport to the train station where the train waits for the bus. Pay for train ticket via machine on board. Walked from the station to the hotel with my wheeled case at night comfortably in 10 minutes. A previous review gave a good hint about the entrance being up a corridor rather than fronting directly onto the street, but other than that the hotel’s directions were spot on and I found it easily. Good, clean pension type hotel set in an excellent location 2 mins from the magnificent square yet still peaceful. Set in its own courtyard/garden with balconies accessible to all floors, the hotel has a pleasant and pretty aspect. Loads of bars and eateries nearby – take your choice, all good. Staff extremely helpful and speak good english. Booked trip to auschwitz with them - one of their guys drove us there (me and 4 American guests) bought the tickets for us and brought us back to the hotel – all at a cheaper price than other tours - and you knew he was going to turn up. Would stay again and recommend this hotel to a friend.

Our family (two adults and two children aged 14 and 16)stayed four nights at Globtroter. Highly recommendable. Quiet, a nice, clean and spacy room, a friendly and service-minded staff (providing adequate information on attractions etc.) and superb location (only one minute walk to the main market place and the heart of Krakow old town). We also found the room rate to be cheap. Also plenty of good restaurants and cafees nearby(serving e.g. breakfast which Globtroter does not serve). My only negative comment is that Globtroter was quite hard to find! Only a very small and hidden sign on the outer wall to the street. Standing only 50 m from the front gate we asked a number of taxi drivers and restaurant employees and none of them had heard of or knew where Globtroter was located

My wife and I stayed here six nights last month and had a wonderful experiance. The location couldn't be better, short walk from the train station, main square, many restaurants and bars. It is a pension and not a hotel, so don't expect expensive hotel ammenities. I found it to be a better value than more expensive penions we've used before. The staff bent over backwards to help with all of our needs, arrainged transportaion, dinner reservations, we even hired one of the staff to drive us to the concentration camps. I will absolutely stay here again, and recommend it highly!!!

Specifico che questo è il mio primo viaggio nei paesi dell'est,tutto è stato programmato dalla mia amica.L'Hotel è molto centrale,quindi accessibile alla grande piazza con due passi.L'hotel si presenta esente da rumori,pero' in quanto a luminosita' presenta alcune lacune.Il mattino mi svegliavo perchè entrava luce dalla parte superiore della porta,avendo delle vetrate colorate.Il cuscino sembrava quello di un bambola e seppure con l buona disponibilita' del personale ,ne ho ottenuto un altro,non ero abituato a cuscini cosi piccoli.Il bagno è spazioso,ma privo di qualsiasi oggetto necessario ,in quanto dopo il viaggio in aereo ci erano stati sottratti,bagnoschiuma e shampo.Anche il prezzo,calcolando che a mangiare fuori si spende pochissimo,mi è sembrato un po' eccessivo.

We had a great experience at Globtroter. It is simply in the middle of the city, yet quite enough area. Right next door, as you walk out to the left, there is a wonderful place to eat, amazing food and prices. While at the Globtroter, the stuff was very friendly, always available and made things simple. After we checked out, we had about 6 hours before our train departs. Globtroter has an extra room any quest can use after checking out. It has a shower, couch, fridge, just about anything you may need while waiting for your departure, at no additional cost. Very simple hotel, yet very comfortable.

Globetroter ist ein Hotel in sehr zentraler Lage, da es in einem Hinterhof gelegen ist sind jedoch keine störenden Belästigungen gegeben. Mein Zimmer war sehr sauber und verfügte über ein Bad mit großer Dusche und ausreichend Platz. Im gesamten Gebäude ist W-Lan verfügbar. Ferner steht ein Pc in einem Raum. Preisleistung sind sehr gut.

Terri Bergmann from United States Reply Sep 14th, 2012

My first experience at staying in Europe was at the Globtroter. I would stay there again the next time I am in the area. It was clean, quiet and very comfortable. The person at the front desk was very helpful in all our questions. We overlooked the courtyard and had a great view. This is a definite on our list of places we liked. Stayed at a few others as we traveled around and the Globtroter was our favorite. The only problem we had was it was a little hard for us to find because we were not aware that it was down between the buildings.

Anne E from United States Reply Sep 7th, 2012

The Globtroter is very close to the center of old town, so the location was perfect- a 2 minute walk and quiet as it was not on the main square. This was our first stop in Poland and we were not disappointed. The hotel rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, and full of charm, as is the entire hotel. It adds to the whole experience of the city. Excellent value for its location.

Dorrit Tellerup from Denmark Reply Aug 23rd, 2012

Globtroter ligger fredeligt og alligevel meget centralt. Vi havde en suite, det var bare ideelt. Hyggeligt sted. Venligt personale. Manglede blot få ting: en hår tørrer, er også i tvivl om, hvorvidt håndklæderne overhovedet blev skiftet i de 4 dage, OG så var bruseren nærmest ubrugelig. Skulle have været kalket af for længe siden

Richard Robinson from United States Reply Aug 19th, 2012

The Globtroter was the ideal hotel for us for this trip to Krakow. Tucked behind a square and therefore quiet and private, it was the perfect spot to be. The Globtroter is located just a minute or so's walk from the main square so it is right in the center of Krakow's bustling center. The staff was more than accommodating to our requests and the decor of the rooms was quaintly old-style European. Since the Globtroter does not serve breakfast, the staff suggested two fine cafes just across their little square only seconds away that were great. All-in-all, I would not consider staying anywhere other than the Globtroter if I am fortunate enough to make it back to Krakow!

we were at globtroter for 3 days and nights. a wonderful place with nice rooms and excellent location close to main square and a small square of its own! the staff were not just there for a job but were, beyond that, most helpful persoanlly. they were all excellent. there is a wonderful bakery across the street where we had wonderful baked goods for breakfast. we will stay there again when we are in krakow. they accomodated my wheelchair very nicely and were most eager to help and give directions and make sure we got a morning wake up when we asked for it. wonderful!

anne from Norway Reply Jul 25th, 2012

The Globtroter was excellent but a litle bit difficult to find. Glad we took taxi. The rooms were clean and spacious and the beds were comfy. The location is superb. I is just a 2 minute walk to the main square where all the action is. The reception staff were very helpful too.

Janet Duggan from United Kingdom Reply Jul 16th, 2012

Have stayed at Globtroter many times. Perfect position in the centre of the Old Town. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Rooms are spotless but a little basic, but there is everything you need and an ensuite shower room. I have taken many friends there and recommended it to friends and nobody has been disopointed.

Warren Cohen from United States Reply Jun 20th, 2012

Centrally located near railroad station and Old Town Square. Clean rooms, and friendly, helpful staff. I highly recommend it.

Dani Burdett from United Kingdom Reply Jun 19th, 2012

We always stay at The Globtroter because it's excellent! Great value, very central yet quiet and very clean and comfortable. I've stayed at various places in Krakow but now always return to The Globtroter. The staff are fantastic and I always book trips with them because they are good value and completely reliable.
