Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for 4 nights last week. Staff nice. Breakfast very good plenty of choice, this would suit any diet. Room spotless bed very comfortable. If I were to come back I would ask for a room on the other side of passage due to noise during early hours of morning. WIFI good. Booked one tour through hotel which was good. Great bar just across from hotel & plenty of restaurants around the area. Tip whilst in Poland take polish change as Auschwitz-Birkenau you needed change for the toilet & even a resturant charged us. Would definitely go back.

Stayed for one week over Easter. Very easy check in with two adjoining rooms. Clean and you can hire a kettle for about £3 pounds /wk (worth it). Wifi excellent and it allowed my kids to play their tablets, we could watch netflix in the evening. Staff very helpful and we used the hotel transport to Auschwitz. Piotr the driver was very knowledgeable about history and knew how to get free tickets early without the guide. This was ideal for our family which went around at our own pace. You need to spend the day here. Hotel is located in the heart of the Jewish Quarter. Walking distance to the Heritage trail. We used public transport a lot with trams costing very little. BE WARNED all tickets need to be validated every journey. Machine for this is on the bus and tram and is easy to use. We made our own way to the Saltmine using a minibus from the city center.Cost 3 Zotys one way each and about 45min. There you buy the entrance ticket which comes with a guide. Need at least 3hrs here Food places plentiful in the Jewish Quarter. Very good advice and help from the team at Regent, especially Estera and Wojciech

We stayed at Hotel Regent for a four day break in early April.Location was great to get a bout and sight see ,Hotel was very clean and tidy, staff very polite. Continental buffet breakfast , had something for everybody. Rooms were very clean ,towels changed daily if requested, cleaned every day. Would definitely stay here again for location.

Initially my friend and I were given a tiny room, that wouldn't have been suitable as a single room. No room to swing a mouse and no reflection whatsoever to any of the online pictures. Fortunately we were allocated a much larger double aspect room (the bathroom in the second room was larger than the bedroom in the first). Otherwise we would have requested a hotel transfer. There are limits to friendship and 4 nights in a confined space would have been beyond the pail. Having overcome that obstacle the rest was a breeze. Comfortable beds, good wifi, good range of foods for breakfast, fresh towels and a powerful shower. Happy days! Ask for a corner room and a kettle (you pay extra but it's worth it).

Stayed here as 2 friends exploring the city and suited us perfect. Based in the Jewish quarter there is lots of lovely restaurants and bars near by. Takes about 15 mins to walk to the main square with lots of lovely shops bakery’s and cake shops on the way....the polish really love their sweet treats.the cleaners in this hotel are fabulous, rooms and public areas are spotless.The public areas and the hall and bathroom and quite modern with the bathrooms having great showers however the bedrooms are very dated with a weird bean bag type pillow but we weren’t at home so we weren’t expecting our comforts!Breakfast had a good selection, it was very European but we enjoyed trying something different and the coffee was great. WiFi in the hotel is free and worked all over. The majority of the staff in this hotel is fantastic and very friendly especially the lovely lady who tops up the breakfast she always had a great smile in the morning. However the only reason I haven’t gave it a 5 is because of the receptionist Angelica, we were struggling to get boarding passes to print on there computer and asked her for her help as it was in polish and she couldn’t of been any less interested, she was very argumentative and rude and proceed to talk to her colleague about us in polish and throwing a few laughs in for good measure! Everyone has bad days and I would of brushed over it only when I went to walk away there was an elderly couple struggling to do the same and the customer service she provide them was disgusting proceeding to tell them it was not her problem!yes she’s right it’s not her problem but surely the main purpose of her job is customer service, manners cost nothing.

We stayed at the Regent Hotel which is located in the Jewish quarter of Krakow. Location wise its fantastic 10 min's walk to the main square which has shed loads of bars, restaurants etc. Our room which probably needed updating, was to be fair always spotlessly clean & if u needed fresh towels they would change them every day & our beds where made every day. We where on the ground floor which didn't matter because it was quite quiet & the FREE WIFI was brilliant. Breakfast was served from 7-10 AM. It wasn't 5 star but was still nice, cereal & bread for toast with a bit of scrambled egg available but with nice cheese's, ham. Plenty of fresh tea, coffee & fresh juice. It was more than adequate. Auschwitz is a must 1 of the highlights of our 4 days. We also visited the Plasow site which is the original concentration camp out of Schindler's list & his factory is also worth a visit. The Piano Bar in the square is also a must go to, the cocktails, the decoration & the staff are first class. On the whole my expectations of Krakow where surpassed, it is a beautiful city with great people! And would I stay at the Regent again? Yes I would, the staff where more than helpful & friendly. We didn't have the correct travel plug but they borrowed us 1 for the 4 days we where there....great touch!! In all we had a fantastic time & we will be back to Krakow!!!!!!

Such a great hotel, lovely staff, nothing too much trouble. Our Room was absolutely beautiful, very authentic, spotlessly clean, big bathroom, fresh towels when needed and lovely and warm. The regent was in a perfect position for exploring; lots of wonderful bars and restaurants close by. Loved our stay here and would definitely recommend to others.

Great breakfast and location, comfortable rooms (just renovated), very helpful staff. Tip: if you go to Auschwitz and you are with 4 persons, book a taxi via the hotel (ask for Marek or his brother Stanislaw). It is cheaper than a tour and you can stay as long as you want. The only disadvantage is that you have to guide yourself but that is not a problem.

Situated near Krakow old town, the staff were very welcoming and helpful. They helped us with travel arrangements and gave us a free breakfast before an early check in. Our accommodation was spacious and comfortable. Very good value for money. We would stay there again.

The Regent is a very good hotel and excellent value for money. We arrived mid morning and expected to have to wait for our rooms be to be ready but were pleasantly surprised to find they were immediately available. Excellent choice for breakfast and the 'cellar' where breakfast is served is distinctly quirky! Staff very friendly and helpful and all spoke excellent English. The location of the hotel means it is only a short walk into the main town and there are numerous good bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk away. Tea and coffee and not routinely supplied in the rooms but for a flat fee of 15 zloty (about £3.00) for the whole of your stay this service is available and in my view excellent value for money! Would definitely recommend the Regent Hotel.
