Hotel Fortuna

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We went to Krakow for a long weekend for a myriad of reasons (the war, a city of culture, the salt mines) and needed a hotel with parking near the centre and this could not have been better. It is slightly old fashioned but very comfortable nevertheless. Our room was on the ground floor for which relief much thanks. I would definitely revisit the city and I would stay at the Fortuna again. The breakfasts were outstanding (the lovely Alena on hand) which brings me to the key to this place: all the staff are wonderful. We could not have had more helpfulness and kindness from all we met so thank you Kate, Magdelena (x2) and Sandor and hope to see you again soon.

Being close to the university and old town was a prerequisite. Hotel Fortuna fits this requirement. Our room was adequate, small but adequate. The breakfast (not included) was outstanding. For a couple of days, it's perfect. Oh yes, and just two blocks from White Rose restaurant and the theater.

Okay, don't be suprised if the hotel itself is not a 5 - starred one. Because it is not. BUT!!!! 1. It has a perfect location. 2. You can park your car in their private parking lot. 3. The staff working there is soooo much wonderful, helpful and kind!!! 4. Breakfast: wow, lovely, perfect. 5. My room: small, the carpet could have been a bit cleaner. My room didn't have a fridge in it, and that was a problem. Above of all, go there because it is really nice.

Our visit of Krakow was accompanied by rainy weather all of the time. On the other hand, we had very good accommodation because I chose this very good located hotel with possibility of parking. Hotel location is very good, out of the hectic city center, but still so close. Five minute by walk and you are in beautiful green park on the edge of the old city centre. Room was nice and clean but in the bathroom was outdated shower enclosure. Bed was too comfortable because I like hard mattresses. Pillow was better than I have at home. Breakfast was very good and rich. Reception staff probably did not understand me and she selected payment in €, not in PLN so I had bad exchange rate.

This hotel is a typical old Polish building steeped in character but it is spotlessly clean and all facilities are modern and in good condition. The staff are very helpful and all speak perfect English. The rooms are a good size with TV, full size fridge and complimentary Wi-Fi. Bottles of water were supplied every day and bowls of apples are provided throughout the hotel for customers to take as they please. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Main Square in the Old Town and really central to all bars restaurants and attractions. Only down sides was that there is a bar in the hotel but is closed except in the morning when it runs as a café and the breakfast was always busy as there was only member of staff on each morning to look after the tables. All in all, this is a nice hotel and should I ever return to Krakow, I would certainly consider using it again.

The hotel itself had a traditional look, which was very charming. Rooms were clean, the hotel itself was clean, but my shower was broken. Everyone was very helpful, the breakfast was rather simple, but good enough. Location; it was perfect! The street was calm and everything was nearby.

Walking through the doors you feel like you're stepping back in time to a pension from the 19th century. If you want more elegance and charm, try the fancier hotels such as the Grand or Francuski, but if all you need is a great location, a comfortable room, an adequate breakfast with a cafe-style feel, friendly service, unexpected touches such as bathrobes in your room or apples at the reception desk, but without modern touches such as an electric kettle or a hair dryer (available at reception if you ask), on-site parking (for a fee) or relatively easy on-street parking (on weekends), at a reasonable price, then you will enjoy your stay here. The hotel is right across the street from the beautiful Hutten-Czapski Palace, now a museum, the excellent new Jozef Czapski Pavilion, and the charming garden (open 10 until dusk for free), and a one-minute walk from Planty. Our room faced Pilsudskiego Street which has a tram line, but the trams did not disturb our street. If they will disturb you, ask for a room not facing that street. Wifi was fine.

Hotel is a perfect location and very clean both of which are very important to me. However was woken up every morning my cleaner chatting and talking loudly and banging supply cupboard doors from about 7.30 every morning.

Friendly & helpful staff, quite outdated hotel, but still with nice charm, perfect location, 100 meters away from Planty (the park surrounding the old town of the beautiful city of Kraków). Just too bad the hotel did not have a real vegan breakfast to offer (apart from some bread and vegetables), which is a real pity, as Kraków has some nice vegan places to eat. Also, on my second morning, still nothing really vegan on the breakfast menu, even if it only was a can of soy or oat or rice milk (although they must have known I was staying in that hotel for 2 nights). Also, but that could also be adding to the charm, I must say, if I were here for leisure, my room was having windows to the street side corner, which also had trams/street cars thundering along from quite early in the morning. But again: that's also adding up to the charm of this hotel.

Lovely hotel, suite was spotless with plenty room, flatscreen tv, radio, fridge, large double bed, shower, heated towel rail and traditional decor throughout. Breakfast was lovely and fresh with plenty choice, the waiter in the dining room was exceptionally helpful as were the reception staff. Easy walking distance to the main square. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.
