Hotel Fortuna is located on a major old thoroughfare that leads west from the Old Town. The street exhudes a tatty, faded grandeur, but it may well be poised for a resurgence. The hotel is opposite the fine Hutten-Czapski palace, which is now owned by the National Museum ( the main building is also right on your doorstep). Heading east, the heart of the city is a stone's throw away. Fortuna has renovated an elegant nineteenth century building, and offers twenty five rooms in a plain style. It is an attactive place and the city can be explored with ease from here.

Thanks for a very pleasant stay at this hotel. We have enjoyed the city and the food and also the kindness of the staff.Great hotel!This is the perfect place to stay!
reasonably-priced hotel close to the city center with free internet.
We've stayed in the hotel in May '10. Came to Cracow to visit our family and friends. Spent only few days there but definitely had a good time. The hotel is centrally located, the rooms are spacious and very clean. The staff was very nice and helpful. They offered their assistance if we needed anything. Breakfast in the hotel was a 'buffet breakfast' and there was a good choice. Would go there again.
Last minute deal, didn't know where we were staying till we got there but loved this place. Pretty basic but just what we needed and cheap enough too.
What a great hotel..Centrally located. Words cannot express how wonderful this hotel is. Talk about comfort. I felt like I was back in the USA in a great comfortable bed with a boxspring and mattress. Most of my experience in europe as far as hotels goes is pretty sad. Most hotels have a lousy mattress with some strage cover that resembles a folded up quilt. Not the Fortuna, Krakow. Full American amenities and glorious air conditioning. The food was excellent!! and so was the front desk staff, extremely helpful, Paulina was standing out, shes a big asset to this hotel! Keep up guys!
Lovely place to stay....so close to everything; easy walk into Old Town and to the Castle. Food was great, rooms are a perfect size, and staff was friendly and very helpfull! Would stay there again

We stayed at Hotel Fortuna in Krakow from 20th Sept - 23rd September 2007. We asked for a double room and initially were given a room with single beds - when we asked for another room the staff did give us a double room. Unfortunately the room was facing the main street and was very bright and noisey. When we asked if we could have a quiter room the staff were great and moved us into room 27 - upstairs room overlooking back parking area. Not noisey,excellent room - it had a seperate lounge room and seperate bedroom with the bathroom in the middle. We were certainly much happier thanks to the help of the staff.
Price for 3 nights 1st to 3rd December 07
April '07 My family was originally booked in a different hotel but were transferred to Hotel Fortuna. What a great hotel! Nice and quiet except for the trams at night and early morning. The staff were wonderful and it was in a great location, we walked all over Krakow. We all agreed that we would stay there again, Thanks Hotel Fortuna!
I had a very comfortable stay at this extremely reasonably priced hotel and the staff were very friendly and helpful; they speak good English and were very happy to book tours, phone for a taxi and so on. I had a room on the ground floor which meant there was a bit of noise from the clanking trams going past, but you soon get used to that. It adds to the atmosphere of the place, really. The breakfast was fine if a little unimaginative and the best thing is that the hotel is about 2 minutes' walk from the centre of town. Recommended.
My daughter, who is stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army, and I stayed at Hotel Fortuna at Christmas time 2004 and we coudn't have asked for any better. We are originaly from a small town in Wisconsin, U.S.A. and the population was about 95% Polish we felt right at home. When we go back for another visit we will stay at The Hotel Fortuna again, in fact if there are no vacancys at the time we plan on so we can stay there, we will change our dates to be there.
We stayed in this Hotel in November 2005.The rooms where large warm and clean.There was a little noise from the trams but no more and you would expect from a hotel in the middle of a city.At the price i would recomend.
I stayed in the hotel in August 2005. The hotel is pleasant and ideally situated close to the old town. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The single room I stayed in was furnished in old-fashioned luxurious way, which is good. However, the room had a fitted carpet, which I dont especially like: you cannot keep them clean and they tend to gather bad odors in them. But I guess it is difficult to find a hotel in Poland without fitted carpets in them.
As I was staying at the first floor and my bedroom was situated over a main street (Pilsudskiego) there was a great deal of noise during the nighttime. I had to use earplugs during nights. The In Your Pocket city guide of Cracow advertised that the hotel is well soundproofed from the trams. I have to disagree. I cant say that there was any soundproof whatsoever, if you dont consider two set of windows as soundproof (which it really wasnt due to lack of insulation).
