Grodek is the jewel in Jerzy Donimirski's Cracow crown. The owner has resurrected a number of unusual properties in the region, and this beautifully renovated townhouse has a location so secret that many Cracovians themselves have never walked down the street it's based on. However, Grodek is in fact right in the heart of town just three minutes walk from Cracow's Main Market Square. The hotel lies on a charming cul-de-sac by the old Dominican Abbey, and it has all the ingredients for a memorable and romantic stay in Cracow.

Perfectly located and within easy walking distance to the Main Square and attractions. All of the Staff at this beautiful Hotel from, the front desk to the cleaning staff ensured our 3 night stay was a most enjoyable and comfortable one. The Staff were faultless and provided an outstanding service who were always on hand to help when needed. We ate in the Hotel's restaurant and the food was delicious and for a 5* Hotel the value for money was incredibly reasonable. I would recommend anyone to stay there, and most definitely we'll be back there, but next time we'll stay in one of there stunning Suites.
Lovely hotel located a stone's throw from the central square in Krakow. We had specified that we were 3 friends travelling together - so 3 adults - so were disappointed on arrival when we saw the size of the room. We had opted for the deluxe room and were told that that would accommodate 3 beds. It did, but 3 people and 3 suitcases in addition would have been tricky. I spoke to the girl in reception and she was very helpful. After checking with her manager we were given a very nice room (called apartment, but a bigger room with a sofa) which was very nice and much appreciated! When we asked for an extra matress to put on the sofa bed which was pretty lumpy, that was no problem either. We encountered 4 different girls in reception during our stay and they were all very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was fine, and though the breakfast staff did their job perfectly well they were less friendly than the receptionists. The weather was cold and miserable and we had looked forward to sitting down in the bar in the front of the fire, however it was never lit. When we mentioned that it would be nice to see the fire in the reception was lit, it was in fact lit the next day. However,strange with the cold weather that this wasn't lit automatically every morning. We used the sauna every day to warm up which was great, and it was sensible that you had to give an hour's notice so it could be turned on, but we did think it was a bit starnge to have to pay extra for it in a 5 star hotel. All in all though it was a lovely hotel and we all agreed that we would definitely go back.
Lovely room, excellent value, friendly staff. The only promblem was with our dinner booking on the first nigh, we were told it was not necessary to book, however when we arrived for dinner they could not accommodate us as it was too busy. Breakfast could be improved when quite by cook ing eggs to order as the fried eggs were always hard from being stored. I hope these point might improve other guests staying with you. We realy enjoyed ourselves and thought the hotel was beautyfull
We enjoyed the Hotel Grodek on June 25-27,2009. We booked a deluxe hotel room which was a comfortable size and looked out over the gardens. All staff were friendly. Especially gracious were the breakfast wait staff who went out of their way to be accomodating. The location was excellent and we dined one night in the hotel dining room and enjoyed it. Only disappointment was the library which is smoking; so we took our drinks to the patio on the top floor which worked out well and the weather cooperate. We also found that this was a great spot to recup between touring. We would strongly recommend this hotel.
My wife and I stayed at the Grodek for 2 nights in early June 09 and had a very pleasant experience. The location is excellent for the old town, Wavel Castle, the river and most other attractions. It is tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac which lends it an air of seclusion.
The room we had was very neat, well appointed, but quite small. The bathroom and toiletries were excellent. The only disappointment we had was that the 'famous' restaurant was closed for the night we could book as it was beiong 'cleaned'. A shame as we had read so much about it.
I would recommend the Grodek to visitors as it has a 'family' run feel to it as opposed to a large chain and is in a great location.
Front desk staff were young but very helpful with excellent English.
Just returned from the Hotel Grodek. A superb hotel! The attentiveness of the staff; the delicious food [do dine there!]; the immaculate and comfortable rooms - it was all excellent. My Father and I stayed together. My Father has very restricted mobility and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Just returned from a stay at the Grodek. Everything about it was great, the room, the staff, the service, the general feel of the place, the location - in a quiet cul-de-sac right on the Planty gardens and an easy walk to everywhere - and the driver they provided. We checked out some of the other hotels we had been offered and were very happy with our choice
