Brilliant Hotel

Excellent stay at RT Regent - a lovely immaculate, comfortable, warm place(which it needed to be, as a foot of snow fell in two hours). One of the best hotels we've stayed in for the price. Plenty of choice at breakfast, and the staff were so heplful and friendly - especially when we returned 5 hours after checking out to beg for a couple of rooms, with a gentleman we'd met at the airport, after our flight was cancelled due to the snow. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the centre, and surrounded by lovely bars and places to eat. I can't recommend this hotel enough, I'd definitely stay there again if I return to Krakow.
Great Location and Helpful Staff

We chose this hotel as it appeared to be well-situated for sightseeing and reasonably easy to get to.

On check-in we were shown to our room on the first floor. We noticed that there was a bulb off and when we mentioned it, we were told that they would change our room as the bulb couldn't be changed until the following morning. Our new room was on the third floor and was very spacious, clean and quiet. The en-suite bathroom was large and had a heated towel rail and shaving point. Our room had satellite TV although there were no English language stations on when we were there, not that we had time to watch TV other than when we were getting ready in the morning. A beverage tray would have been nice so we could have a coffee first thing but wasn't the end of the world.

The staff were very helpful and informed us that if we ate in the hotel restaurant we qualified for a 15% discount as we were residents.
We ate in the hotel 2 nights out of the 4 of our stay and the food was very good.

The breakfast buffet is good with lots of fresh rolls, cereal, cold cuts, fresh fruit also scrambled eggs and sausages.

The hotel is in the Jewish district and there are lots of things to see near-by. It is also in a good position for exploring the Wawel Castle and Main Square areas.

We would certainly stay at the Regent again.

Fantastic clean hotel!

"Superb! Fantastic! Not a bad start to a review. My wife and I stayed March 8th-11th 2006. This hotel was a perfect base to explore Krakow. Superb, clean en suite facilities. Fantastic restaurant with the best food i have ever tasted on my travels. They even prepare a packed lunch for you at your request so you can explore the city and not go hungry! No language problems at all as everyone speaks a smattering of English. The only thing which stops this wonderful hotel getting my maximum 10 out of 10 was the lack of coffee making facilities in the bedroom. It would have been wonderful to come back into our room after a hard day exploring and make a lovely warm coffee! This slight prob can be easily overcome by taking your own travel kettle. A highly recommended hotel indeed. "

Historical Traveller Reviews of RT Regent Hotel

Great place, great staff, just great

from Hakf
Fantastic place. Check in was quick, and easy and the staff were informative and spoke great English. We stayed for 3 nights, and on the first night I came back extremely drunk, and managed to throw up all over the bathroom floor. In the morning I failed to clean it myself as it was, well dry and stuck to the floor. When we returned from the day out the scene of the crime was just like when we first entered the room; spotless.

The bathroom was very nice, the beds were nice and low and comfortable and quiet. Breakfast is great, they offer everything to give you the energy boost you need if you're going to be out and about all day.

Fantastic staff. Each and every one I encountered was a marvel.

Another plus is the hotel is 2 or 3 roads down from the sushi bar Edo, which offers the best sushi I have ever tasted!

A great stay in Krakow...

from jennga13
My friend and I stayed here for four night at the end of a ten day trip. The Regent was perfect for what we needed, in the great location of Kazimierz. It takes about ten to fifteen minutes to walk to Wawel Hill and a further five minutes to the Old Town Square. The prices in the local bars and restaurants are a lot lower than the Old Town, and as previous people have mentioned, there are some great bars and restaurants about. We had a delicious meal at Monarchia, which is two doors down from the hotel, and there is a wonderful pastry shop on the corner. The included buffet breakfast was good, although was pretty much exactly the same every day we were there.

We had a twin room, fairly small but clean (although there was an unidentifiable stain on the carpet). We couldn't find any english channels on the TV (except for EuroSport, which I don't count!) but we weren't there to watch TV anyway. The bathroom was a good size with shower stall and shiny burgundy tiling. The only small complaint I would have is that our room was at the front of the hotel and the curtain was not quite long enough to block out the florescent light from the sign. All in all though I would recommend the Regent to anybody visiting Krakow.

RT Regent is a good find

from JerryMadison
My brother, sister, and I stayed at the RT Regent for 1 night on Sept 18, 2005. The room was very clean and spacious. The location is in the old Jewish Kazimierz area. The area around the hotel certainly has a lived in feeling about it and helps create some of the charm of the location. The hotel is an enjoyable 15 minute walk to the old main town square. On the way is Wawel Castle. We also stayed 3 nights at a hotel near the square (Bed & Breakfast) earlier in our trip. The RT Regent was by far the nicer, cleaner, and had a more spacious room. It was however further away from the square which is an important factor to me. We did have a car that we parked in a 24 hr guarded lot 4 blocks from the hotel and cost $9 US/24 hrs. The reception staff did speak enough english to be very helpful to us. Overall, great hotel....ok location.

Good times at Regent Hotel

from dcast79
We enjoyed our stay at Regent Hotel for a few different reasons. First of all, as most of the other reviews have stated, the staff at the hotel is wonderful, they definitely go out of their way to make their guests stay as pleasant as possible. They were more than happy to look up bus and train information for us, cook our breakfast way after the end of the breakfast-serving time and and accomodate our bed change requests. The hotel itself is quite inexpensive and therefore also very basic. The rooms are clean though and quite large. The hotel itself is situated in Old Kazimierz, which is about a 10 min. walk from Old Town, but to be honest, there are so many things to do around the hotel, we only made our way to the old part once. We had much more fun hanging out at the local bars and cafes (all of them are gorgeous) which are not filled with tourists only and extremely overprices like some places in the old town.

Krakow is definitely the next Prague

from snogaroonies
We had 4 fabulous nights at the Regent and it was extremely clean and well managed with helpful staff who spoke excellent English. Being on the top floor you're in the attic space and as someone previously mentioned, has a sloping roof, bit of a hazard if you leave the window open and it starts raining when you're out!! Be warned occupiers of room 306!!
It's well located only 15 mins walk from the beautiful main square, and a stones throw from lots of cafes and bars in the Jewish Quarter. 'Magma' restaurant at the top end of Szeroka does amazing pierogi (little fried pasties), and 'Chlopskie Jadlo' (just off the Main Square) gives you a real taste of Poland.
Everything's at least half the price it is in the UK; a huge latte in the Square was £2! Definitely the place to people watch!
Don't miss Auschwitz/Birkenau. Best to take a taxi and do it at your own pace rather than on a guided tour. The guide book is 3zloty (50p) and has all the information you can absorb. We did the camps and Salt Mine at Wieliczka on the same day which helped cut taxi costs. Hail one on the street and agree a price rather than have your hotel arrange one.

Great for the price

from A TripAdvisor Member
The biggest reason that I rated this hotel "excellent" is that the hotel staff went out of their way to accomodate us during our stay. We arrived around 9 in the morning after a pretty sleepless overnight train ride, and as check in time was not until 2pm, we figured we would just drop our bags off and have to wait for our room for several hours. We got there, and even though we were not technically paying for our room until 2pm, the receptionist invited us to go downstairs and partake in the complimentary breakfast buffet and that they would have a room ready for us in half an hour. The room was ready when they said it would be, they took our bags to our room while we were eating breakfast, and a staff member brought the key down to us.
Aside from this particular experience, the hotel was clean and bright, and our room had a small balcony. The staff spoke very good english and arranged for a taxi to take us to the train station the night after we checked out, again when we weren't really paying. The complimentary breakfast is very tasty with lots of selection.
Just a tip on the tours, if you want to go to the salt mine, go to the information station kitty-corner from the hotel and buy the tickets for 55zl (same price as at the mine, or just buy them at the mine itself) and take the 'lux bus' from the corner of starowislna and SW wawryzynca - the bus is only 2 to 2.5 zl per person, each way. The salt tour through the hotel is 120zl. The auschwicz tour is comparably priced to others around town, so the tour through the hotel is fine.
The only thing I didn't like so well was that the hotel is a little far from the old town center, which isn't that bad, but there were several times when we either had to come back for something or come home after a long day of walking, and it was pretty rough.
Excellent hotel for a great price - we got it for US $65 per night including breakfast through travelpoland

Great Hotel in Krakow

from Futebol
Returned yesterday from a 4 night stay in Krakow at the the Regent Hotel. We chose the hotel based on reviews on this site and weren't disappointed. The hotel is situated in the Kazimierz area of Krakow (about 15 - 20 mins slow walk from Krakow's main market square) which is the old Jewish quarter - there are many historical sites nearby as well as small local shops that are worth a visit.
The staff at the Regent were very friendly (and spoke English) and professional and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Our 2nd floor room was fairly large with a small entrance hall with loads of storage for suitcases, shoes and jackets etc. The room had a lovely view from two big windows overlooking the hotel's courtyard area (ask for a room at the back) and was equipped with a wardrobe (with hangers), dressing table with chair, bedside tables, tv, clock radio and plenty of lighting. Bottled water was provided every day too. All the furniture looked brand new and was well maintained. The bed linen was bright and clean (NB feather pillows) and was changed twice during our stay and overall the room was exceptionally clean. The bathroom (shower only no bath) was sparkling clean with plenty of towels (1 large, 1 small per person) and soap and shampoo were provided each day along with clean towels.
The continental breakfast buffet was excellent with selection of cereal, meats, cheese, salads and local breads and pastries provided everyday. The only slight criticism I would have is that smoking is allowed in the restaurant where breafast is served - you could always have your breakfast in the courtyard though!
When we left, the hotel ordered a taxi to the airport for us which arrived in about 5 seconds flat and also stored our luggage when we went for a last look around Krakow on the day of our departure. I would heartily recommend the Regent to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Krakow.

I just loved it!

Nice hotel, in the heart of the city center! Nice room, really clean. Nice staff. Good restaurant and great terrace where we chilled out and had the best apple pie EVER! In one world: Great hotel!

Best Hotel in Krakow

from dutch2220
Words cannot describe the incredible time I spent at the Regent. I arrived wet, disheveled and exhausted at 7.30AM, and the front desk clerks didn't blink an eye. I was given a room immediately, and what a nice surprise that was! For a single room it was very large, comprised of an entry hall, bedroom and wonderfully designed large bath. The service was impeccible...anything I asked for was brought immediately to my room within minutes. I have and will continue to recommend this hotel to all those I know who are looking for the best of the best in Kazimierz!

The best hotel we stayed in in Poland

from womanintokyo
We spent 4 nights here in June 2005, and I have to agree with previous reviewers' comments that it is a gem. The hotel has plenty of character, which we found lacking in the other 1970's style hotels that we stayed in in Poland, and it's in a fantastic location. It's about a 15 minute walk from the old town square which had concerned me a little when I made our booking, but the area close to the hotel is full of small quirky bars, think ancient singer sewing machines being used as tables in one instance, and excellent restaurants, all primarily frequented by locals not just tourists, so it proved to be a great choice. The Kazimierz area has so much ambience, it was a refreshing alternative from the tourist orientated choices available around the main square. There is no need to be concerned about noise either, the hotel seemed to be well sound proofed, we couldn't hear any noise from the street once inside.

We probably didn't have the best room in the hotel, otherwise I would have given it a 5* rating, ours was a twin room at the front on the top floor, to be precise room 305, so we had a sloping roof, not great for tall people, and due to the chosen layout, one bed was round a corner, so when we were in bed we couldn't actually see each other, but this wasn't a major issue for us, as we weren't on a romantic break. The bathroom were really nice and large, with a great shower and finally the breakfast was fantastic, a huge buffet catering to all tastes. I would go back for a second visit without a doubt.

Top Local Tips for Krakow

Austwich A must go and fascinating trip if only to realise how stupid humans can be and show respect for all who suffered there !

Transport around Krakow Taxis and organised tours can be relatively expensive in Krakow. For example, organised trips to Auschwitz cost between 120 and 400 zlt whereas the return fare on the public bus is 14 zlt and on the train about 20 zlt. Similarly, a taxi from the airport will be about 70 zlt whereas the train fare is just 4 zlt.

Check the weather forecast and take a coat! The day before we arrived it was 28c but then the weather changed and even though we had brought a coat and scarf we were still cold.. The weather is very changeable.
