            • Older travelers

              We liked the helpful staff in booking trips and their knowledge on locla information. We liked the room although the we looked out onto the back of the shops and this was not a pleasant view and we would have preferred a river/city view. The breakfast was great with lots of choice of fresh food.

              The view from our room and an incosiderate traveller who let the room door bang each tiime they emtered or left their room!

              The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The Oranzerie Restaurant was excellent - quality of food, value for money and stunning views of the Castle. The hotel is an ideal location for all the sights of Krakow. Stayed two nights on arrival in Krakow and when we returned to the city for a final night prior to departure Reception upgraded our room. Would definitely stay there again and have already recommended it to friends.

              The only thing which seems to be universal in Europe is that beds do not have a top sheet.

              The reception staff were very friendly, the rooms are very spacious & comfortable and the restaurant on the top floor was delious with fantastic views.

              There is hardly anything to fault with this hotel but if I had to pick one thing it would be to have more English channels on the tv.

              February 2012 weekend. Great location, staff were fantastic, very polite and obliging. We were invited to upgrade to a suite, which was inexpensive and well worth it with great views of the Castle and River. Food at hotel was also great, much better than the restaurants in the surrounding area which were either local cuisine (Pork and sourcrout) or Italian, Pizza, McD's and the like. A very enjoyable weekend, highly recommended and would like to visit again in the Summer.

              The location was great , walking distance tom the main square about five minutes, Castle right opposite the hotel, Krakow tours all went from the front of the hotel. Hotel Kossak, overlooked the river, trams run,from outside the hotel,taxi rank outside,everything you could want,eating,drinking and site seeing were superb, Tip , always look down stairs ,most of the cafe/bars had something going on down stairs Jazz clubs etc,etc. Hotel reception can and will arrange trips,very prompt and efficient service. PS. don't miss the salt mine tour , all tours were offered with English speaking guide and very well run.

            • Older travelers

              More than a 4* hotel. Modern and clean room with a well working air-conditioning (it was very warm weather when we were there) The breakfast was fantastic with a large buffet, and omelets and more cooked when ordered. The bar on the top-floor had a nice view over the river and city, and with reasonable prices. Reception very friendly and professional. Fulfilled all our expectations.We will be back!

              Nothing really. But a suggestion would be to forbid smoking of cigars on the top floor outdoor bar. One cigar-smoker can make it impossible to stay. If the hotel management reads this, they will do it ;-)

              The location of Hotel Kossack was exactly as described. It was within easy walking distance to the Old Town and away from the hustle and bustle. I requested a 5th floor double bedded room with a bath and with a view of the Castle and this is exactly what we were given. The room was immaculately clean. The staff were very polite and answered all our questions courteously. Breakfast was varied - anyone would find something they enjoyed to eat. I truely could not fault this hotel and would highly recommend Hotel Kossak.

              The location is perfect - just 10 min walk from the main attractions and quite away from noisy central streets.

              I've been double charge-off - first time during booking and the second within check-out. Money was unblocked but i would not say it's very convenient.
