Hotel Wentzl is a place where you won't feel like just another name. A small, intimate hotel with just eighteen rooms, great care is taken here to ensure that everything is just right for guests. Hotel Wentzl also prides itself on its restaurant, whose history dates back to 1792 when the celebrated Jan Wentzl launched it. Reopened in recent years, it is now a favorite with many foreigners and Poles, including the President, Aleksander Kwasniewski. Here you can enjoy exquisitely prepared international cuisine as well as some wonderful interpretations of Polish classics, such as the Duck Fillet a la Zubrowka. At Wentzl you can be confident of an intimate and unique experience in this wonderful city. Krakow is waiting to be explored! Hotel Wentzl can be found in a splendid old mansion, known as the house 'under the blue lion' and later as the house 'under the painting'. A beautiful eighteenth century fresco of the Madonna and Child, which has inspired many legends amongst the Cracovians, has survived above the doorway. The charm of these bygone years is ever present inside the Hotel Wentzl. Splendid beamed ceilings conjure the atmosphere of the past, and the rooms have been furnished in harmony with this wonderful heritage. Persian rugs and elegant polished wood furnishings create an entrancing ambiance, whilst air-conditioning, attractive bathrooms and complimentary Internet access will ensure that you can enjoy Old Krakow in modern comfort. Amenities providing by the property are Banquet facilities, Bar, Business center, Concierge, Conference facilities, Disabled facilities, Doctor on call, Dry cleaning, Internet access, Laundry service, Lift / Elevator, Lobby, Non-smoking rooms, Parking facilities, Reception, Restaurant: 1 - breakfast room, Room service, Safe deposit box, Secretarial services, Tour desk, Ticket's reservation (the Theatre, Opera, Concerts etc.), Restaurant's reservations and obviously property can reserve any other hotels in Poland.

Dining

Wentzl Restaurant
The restaurant that was the basis for founding the Wentzl hotel was opened in 1792. Jan Wentzl, its founder has moved his business to this building in the 18th century. Since then the restaurant has remained in Wentzls' hands. Some say it is the best restaurant in whole Krakow. While coming to the Wentzl restaurant or even while passing by it is worth taking a look at the painting on the facade of the building. The legend says that the Krakow Academy's student crated it in order to repay the debts for the food and drinks he had made in the restaurant. The interiors of the Wentzl restaurant remind of the places Polish aristocracy used to eat in previous centuries. Neatly prepared tables, candles on them, ornamented, renaissance doors and a stove in the corner of the rooms make the meal in the Wentzl restaurant a very nice experience. The renaissance interiors are touched with the modernity. There is also a possibility of organizing a splendid banquet or party in the Wentzl restaurant.

Very Nice Hotel right on the Main Square

The Wentzl hotel is perfectly located on the main square. The hotel is beautifully decorated and all of the staff were exceptionally friendly. Quiet, clean...no complaints at all. If we return to Krakow, we will stay here again!

Great hotel for a romantic city break.

Great location, friendly staff. The hotel is peaceful and private despite being on the square. The room was the nicest hotel room we've had in Europe.

Location, Location!

It was perfect, you could walk out the door and be right in the center of everything. Music, Restaurants, flowers and people watching. All of the staff were wonderful and very helpful.We attended a concert in the town square and loved shopping in the market.We walked to the castle and visited a lot of churches to see the beautiful art work all on foot. The best was listening to the trumpet coming from the tower every hour.We wouldn't stay anywhere else if we ever return.

Perfect location

This is an excellent hotel right on the main square. Rooms in the front have a wonderful view of the square but are noisy. Our room was at the back and very quiet and peaceful. It had a small balcony with a couple of seats - the view was not the best, just roofs and the back of buildings. The staff were excellent-very cheerful, helpful and accommodating. They booked excursions and restaurants, offered advice - nothing was ever too much trouble. Strongly recommend this lovely old, characterful hotel.

Location, Location, Location

The location of the hotel is great, right on the town square. Who needs television, when you can peak out the window at all of the entertainers on the square. However, at bedtime, you'll want to close the windows so those same entertainers don't keep you awake. The room was beautifully decorated, and very comfortable as well.

Great place, unbeatable location

We looked at many hotel possibilities, and only this one had that perfect location right on the huge Market Square. I assure you that staying just two or three blocks away at one of many other hotels will not give you the same Krakow feeling or experience. The staff was terrific, and the "free breakfasts" were extraordinary with a menu of hot food items to choose from, in a plush dining room -- so elegant I could not believe it was free, but it was. It's also an easy walking distance to everything, and easy access to buses for the Auschwitz tours. There is so much to see and experience right on the square. Wentzl is the only place I would stay in Krakow. The wireless Internet worked perfectly, and the staff loaned us an adapter for the European plugs so we could recharge our laptop with our American cords. It was all so easy.

This hotel is a very short walk of dozens of authentic small Polish restaurants, where the food is as good as I have anywhere.
