    Fabulous

    What I liked about hotel alexader was that the hotel was very close to main square and the receptionist had good english. Tours could be organised at reception.

    The room was basic enough but didn't realise when booking hotel that you have to specify you want a double bed as on arrival we got two single beds in the room.

    The perfect place to stay for a weekend in Cracow. Was there with a group og 16, and everybody was very much satisfied. Good breakfast.

    Efficiency and helpfulness of Reception staff. Ideal location.

    Unfortunately there was renovation work taking place, so there was inevitably some noise and also a little dust circulating in those areas. However, I acknowledge that this is only a temporary situation, and if it enhances the hotel then it is perfectly acceptable.

    Good

    Centrally located, just outside the old city, this hotel was a very good base for my visit to Krakow. You can walk to all the central sights but there is also a tram stop less than 5 minutes away. The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful.

    There was outside building work just outside the room where they started working before 7 am, which is obviously not nice when you're on holiday. It would have been useful to have a small towel in addition to the larger towel, just one towel per person is not enough.

    Location was very good,breakfast was also good,staff were attentive and willing to help.Would stay again simply for value and location and sufficient breakfast.

    Workmen making a lot of noise at 7am...is it necessary? And also some confusion about my payment when i was checking out,i assumed i had paid at the time of booking as i chose the "pay now" option but to my surprise i was asked to pay again on check out,the receptionist had no record of my pre-payment even though i had my printed reservation paperwork stating i had paid....left a sour taste in my mouth in what was an enjoyable stay overall. Oh and theres no bar in the Hotel! Why?!

    Staff very friendly and helpful. Located only couple of mins walk to Main Square. Good breakfast, cold meats, cheeses, breads, eggs etc.

    Booked triple room, which was twin room with sofa bed. Sofa bed was very comfortable but room was a bit cramped.
