It may not be literally 'under Wawel' in which case you'd be shacked up in the 'Dragon's Lair'. However, you're certainly a dragon's leap from the castle, which means you can actually enjoy a view of the citadel. The hotel offers 47 rooms, all with showers, internet connection and cable TV. The style of the rooms - and the hotel throughout - is neat and pared down, there's nothing old fashioned about the place. If you want to push the boat out, there is also an apartment with commanding views over the river. However, in summer all guests can enjoy the fantastic rooftop bar, a Cracow highlight.

Lovely views from hotel roof terrace, It was a brilliant central location!
Very friendly hotel, good rooms and we were lucky to catch the first rays of Spring sun from the roof top terrace:)
Great view from our Hotel window last night! Fireworks and Wawle Castle, so so cool!
We stayed there on a business trip and we have found it to be perfect distance to the Main Square and our room had a great view to the Wawel Castle and. The hotel was very clean, decorated in warm colours. We had few meals in a hotel's restaurant and that was a good experience.
The view from our room was beautiful. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
Ideally located beside krakow castle. 5 mins walk from city centre. We didn't want a big hotel so this was perfect. Enjoyed the rooftop terrace.
Very warm atmosphere in this hotel, good breakfast too. We enjoyed our Salt Mines tour. Thank you for good service.
We had the most amazing view from our room facing the Vistula River. The rooftop restaurant on a hot day is just next to none. Enjoyed being close to Planty and just 10 min walk from the Main Square. Would recommend!
Roof cafe had excellent views.Excellent service,spotlessly clean, locality and value.
Location is very good, located in old town and right by castle.
Has a pretty cool rooftop bar. Now that the sun is beginning to show its face again, we should be able to enjoy it to the full again. Good food too.
Pretty good. Fantastic castle views. Shouldn't really complain as we had a fab time, but sense that with a few small touches this one could really be a showstopper. A hip interior designer could put it in the 5star category. Still, not everyone needs glam to the max so a good deal
Good hotel, can'[t complain, cheers
Nice hotel in a great location, the staff was friendly enough
Spent two wonderful nights here and cannot fault it - the location is perfect, between the old town and the Jewish town. My room was clean wiht comfortable bed, service was kind.
Stayed 4 nights 08 ov.08. Nice but small room,nice and clean. Good location, 5 min. walk to the main street. Breakfast ok. Good sevice.
Have just got back from a fantastic 4 days at this hotel. Out of our party of 17, I didn't hear any complaints. Our room had a small glass balcony and overlooked the river to the front and the castle to the left. There were tea & coffee making facilities and a hair dryer in the bathroom. The restaurant stayed open for us until we had finished our meal, which I think was about 11pm. The roof terrace, with fantastic views, was open every time we went up there, some lunch times and early evening. They did run out of eggs one morning at breakfast, but overall I think it offered very good value for money in a great location and I would definately recommend it.
Luckily we didn't have any of the problems of the previous couple. We found the setting a winner. Rooms spic and spin if not wonderfully imaginative.
Enjoyed being next to the castle.
Stayed here in April this year, while the hotel is very nice, my first impressions are that they need to improve on customer service issues. The first room we were given overlooked a dirty brick wall.... not what we were expecting at all, and the windows did not open, not good for my health. There was no offer of a smoking/non smoking room, so I had to go outside the building as the roof terrace was not always open.... the bar was not open while we were there and restaurant closes at 10pm, so no chance of a drink near to home, in fact the best place I found was the Irish bar, normally a place I do not use while abroad.... I also feel that there should be at least a hairdryer in each rooms, we had to request one, and they were not too keen to lend one, and, no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms. We ended up in a twin rather than a double room, which had a nice view over the river, I was not prepared to stay in a room with no openings to the windows, had a poor experience like this in Amsterdam where I ended up ill through no fresh air available,The hotel however is lovely if they can iron out a few of these issues,then I would recommend it, but most of my friends would not welcomed the fact that they could not have a smoke in their room if they wished,
