It was a one-night stay by the way from Moscow to Vienna, and it was initially planned like just a place to sleep in for few hours before going forward. After appearing in the hotel we realized we'd like to stay for another day, simply to live in a hotel (to my regret we couldn't do it, as the trip schedule was quite strict). It was like you were transferred from the 21st century vehicle to the old Europe of 16-17th century, with all those chevalier-style rooms and furniture, original wall paintings of the 16th century. Friendly staff, tasty food, location in 50 m off the Castle - all this makes a place the "must-live-there"
This hotel was great. We stayed in the "new" section, so I'm not sure what the other one is like. The pool was so romantic, like swimming in a private cave, and the spa was wonderful. The only negative is the map that Expedia links you to (and google maps, as well) shows the hotel 1.5 blocks away from its actual location and on the wrong side of the street. The actual location is only about 100 feet from the Market Square. That, coupled with the fact that the hotel's sign is not illuminated, made for a very difficult time. After we found it, though, it was all great. One more note about its location: since it is so close to the square (where vehicles are mostly prohibited), if you book a tour that is supposed to pick you up in a minibus or large van, it has to park a block away and the tour guide will walk to the hotel to collect you.
We stayed for only two brief nights in Krakow but I do wish we spent more time at the Grand Hotel. It is simply grand! The place feels like a grand hotel of the 19th century at the peak of its prestige and majesty. What do I mean by this? The finely crafted wooden doors, the ubiquitous floral aroma in the public spaces, the fine marble carpeted staircase and columns, the excellent staff, and even the decor make you feel like a gentleman or lady traveller.

Had a great time at hotel pod roza. Staff were lovely. Rooms immaculate. Only thing i missed was theres no kettle in room to make a cuppa. Location is excellent. In the heart of the old town. Would definitely stay here again.
One block off main busy street w all restaurants and shops and short stroll to main square. Perfect quiet location. Beware on hot days AC in front rooms does not work well. Cools to maybe 79 degrees F. Rooms in back have chilly AC. Very accompanied dating staff and they speak Englush. Great breakfast hot and cold and all sorts of choices plus as much coffee as you want! room has safe, fridge, and huge bathroom w great shower. Pillows in bed are all huge and too big for me to be comfy.

Cafés, shops, and magnificent medieval buildings create a magical experience in the vast Main Market Square, the heart of Krakow’s Old Town. Landmarks around the square include the 500-year-old Cloth Hall, with lively market stalls, and the 14th-century St. Mary’s Basilica, home to the world's largest Gothic altarpiece. Each hour, a bugle call from atop St. Mary’s resounds throughout Old Town.
