We spent 3 night in Hotel Francuski, 11 – 14 March. A wee family break with my husband and our 2 sons. We arrived in Krakow at 8pm so opted for a taxi transfer from the airport to get to the hotel quickly. The transfer was about 20-30 mins, check in was very quick, we opted to take our luggage...

The hotel is beautiful with an amazing staircase. Less than a 10 minute walk to the station and the centre of the old town. The staff are lovely, the hotel is spotless and the breakfast is excellent with so much to choose from. I would definitely come back and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel

First time in Krakow and I was amazed by the whole experience. I can't compare this hotel to others in the area as it's the only hotel I stayed in. It's very old fashioned in keeping with the style. Very well equipped and comfortable. Very grand. Extremely clean. The location was fantastic, 5 minutes to the main square. The breakfast...

A really great hotel in a wonderful location just off the main square in Krakow. The staff were excellent throughout. Lovely to still have doormen and adds a bit of glamour and charm to it. Staff helped to booked restaurant reservations (required for the top restaurants) and happily made us up a packed lunch for a day out. The room...

This 100 year hotel is fantastic, do not come here expecting a modern hotel with a minimalist feel. Check in was very friendly and quick. Our room was on the 3rd floor and there is thankfully a lift. Room 301 had a hallway/entrance, sitting room area with a desk, table, tv fridge and four comfy chairs. The main bedroom had...

The hotel is excellently situated close to the train station,minutes from the old town and main square and a leisurely 20 minute walk to the Jewish Quarter.It also offers a late breakfast till 11 0' clock which is quite rare these days and it is a very good breakfast and you are waited on by wonderful staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
French hotel is located in historic centre of Krakow, opposite The Princes Czartoryski Museum, few meters from the old city walls and the Barbakan. Within easy reach there are many galleries, jewelry stores and during tourist season - also a bazaar with works of art, presented by the old defensive wall. Whole French Hotel is filled with old elegance what is already evident upon entering the lobby and impressive staircase with columns. It is the oldest building in Krakow erected immediately as a hotel - was opened in 1912. Interior is influenced by the popular at that time an art deco style. The rooms and suites are decorated with wallpapers, pictures, and graphics showing former Krakow, as well as solid, stylized furniture. The bathrooms are comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean. Some suites may be combined, by which the hotel is recognised among traveling families. Listening to a clock beating in the lobby or sipping tea in a cafe, you can travel in imagination hundred years to the past. The building is famous for almost a hundred years of its restaurant serving delicious Polish cuisine. ... more   less
