Reviews of Guesthouses in Krakow
Love it. Staff was amazing! Room is cozy and cute!
The Globtroter hotel Krakow is centrally located in a very pleasant old world square, with restaurants, bars and cafés very close at hand, however, the rooms were very quiet at night. There are security locks on doors leading to the hotel, Prices are extremely reasonable. The twin room was smart, clean and well kept. it had en-suite toilet, shower and wash basin. The staff were very pleasant and friendly, always willing to help. They organised all our trips and transfers to and from the airport with the mini bus picking us up at the door. They gave us help whenever we wanted it, and even obtained the cricket score for me when I was unable to find it. Any faults, e.g. light switches were quickly and efficiently dealt with. I would highly recommend the Globtroter hotel to anybody. FULL MARKS GLOBTROTER>
I stayed in Globtroter from May 1st to May 3rd in 2018. During my stay, I forgot my phone in a minivan from a day trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp. Globtroter staff were extremely helpful. They contacted the tour company and I got my phone back the next day. They also gave me detailed direction on how to take a bus to Tyniec Benedictine Abbey. I was able to get there without my phone’s GPS map. Anyway, my experience with Globtroter was very pleasant, and the friendly staff there were fabulous!
The staff where fantastic and helpful with everything we needed from tours and recommending local restaurants ideally situated very near town square.would recommend it to anybody
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.
Magiczna atmosfera..miejsce super położone bardzo blisko Dworca PKP oraz Rynku, o jest szczególnie ważne dla osób podróżujących pociągiem. Personel dbający o wygodę gości. Kraków czarujący jak zawsze. Pozdrawiamy ze Słupska MD
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
Very nice guesthouse, staff friendly, clean rooms, set in nice surroundings, lots of restaurants, bars, cafe nearby. Garden was lovely and relaxing. There is wi-fi, small tv in room, coffee and tea facilities are great. Would recommend
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.
Friendly, helpful staff. Very good location. Beautiful building, comfortable, clean rooms. Value for money!
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.
Me encantó esta ciudad, bella y con mucha historia. El globetroter está muy bien ubicado, es cómodo y limpio, su personal te atiende de manera muy amable y te ayudan en todo lo que necesites
Stayed here several times. Excellent location, set in it's own little garden and away from the noise of the street. Reasonably priced,comfortable rooms with TV and Wi-Fi (has a computer room as well). Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Would happily stay here again. To be strongly recommended.
Comfortable, reasonable, centrally located, quiet; not sure what else you need.
Best place to stay. Quiet en still in middle of centre. Not expensive at all. Staff is very friendly. Hotel with charm!!
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.
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!
rewelacyjne miejsce! cicho, czysto, wszędzie blisko, obsługa bardzo miła i pomocna! Wróce tam na bank!
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.
Whenever we are in Kracow, we always stay at Globtroters. The location is perfect, the staff and facilities are wonderful and the price fits our budget. The breakfast in the beautiful garden is charming. See you next time.
Absolutely great staff and location, I would definitely recommend it!
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.
Very helpful staff, neat vintage rooms, and great location
Great place to stay, quiet room and very welcoming staff in the centre of Krakow!
Best place to stay in Krakow. Lovely, friendly staff and the location could not be better.
Lovely place. Nice room. Peaceful. Very well keeped. Bathroom ok. Kind staff, always very helpfull. A library and a computer upstairs for the hosts. Tea and coffee facilities in the room. 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
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
A fantastic low key hotel in a great location. Big rooms and helpful staff
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Très bonne semaine passée là-bas et tout le monde est près à vous indiquer les meilleurs choses à voir
Hospitality reinvented. We (6 of us) have been guests of the globetroter guest house in the middel of novembre 2013. They picked us up form the airport and brought us back. The rooms were nice and tidy. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you want to go to Krakau, Globtrotter Guesthouse is the place to be. We wil be back again.
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
Ottimo ! Personale molto disponibile! Vicino al centro!. Carlo
This hotel was absolutley great, it was well located, staff was very very nice and helpful. The room were we stayed was great for 3 persons, with 3 twin beds and separated as it had 2 rooms, spacious bathroom and lots of space to be around. 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.
Everything good ! Ncice idea to put a boiler into the room with tea and coffee free. Small thing, but very pleasent. I recommand this hotel, and will come again to this hotel next time in cracovie.
Wir 3 Freundinnen aus Deutschland fanden Ihr Gästehaus hervorragend im Service und ganz besonders auch die Location mitten in der Stadt. Wir können Sie bestens weiterempfehlen, was wir bei jeder Gelegenheit auch tun. Vielen Dank nochmal.
