A great hotel”
Location, staff, beauty of the rooms and dining room.
There are only good things to say about the Alef hotel. Location: 10 minutes walk from the Wawel, 25 minutes walk from the Rynk. The staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful. Very good breakfast. A most beautiful dining room, and a pity they stopped serving dinners there. The hotel is covered with very nice paintings and reproductions, which show the owner's good taste.

A very nice little hotel in the perfect location”
location, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast
I loved this hotel! It's just the right size and looks more like an art gallery than a hotel. It is perfectly situated almost exactly between Old Town and the Jewish Quarter, which are the two main areas that people visit in Krakow. It's only about a 10-12 minute walk to each. The breakfast was excellent. The dining room was my favorite part of the hotel. It's furnished exclusively in antique furniture and an eclectic collection of art from all over the world. The service staff are wonderful and food is good and varied. Plus, they play Classical or Baroque music during breakfast, which sets the perfect mood for being in this exquisite city. The rooms were a little small, but were perfectly adequate for our purposes, which was just to have a place to shower and sleep. They were very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke perfect English. There are plenty of good and inexpensive restaurants nearby as well. I would highly recommend this hotel and will certainly stay here again next time we're in Krakow.

Intersting hotel has character”
Artwork
It is my habit when I visit a new city for the first time, to only commit myself to 1-2 nights in a strange hotel, then take a look around and find somewhere better. However, in the case of the hotel Alef I decided to just stay there for the rest of my time in Krakow. My first impressions were not exactly positive, since the room was a little shabby, but somehow this hotel grew on me. I enjoyed just walking the hallways and stair to see all the paintings they had on display. It really is like staying in an art gallery. The staff were very competent, although I did find it interesting that they just shut the restaurant when the chef was sick. So I can't rate the them highly for features. Anyway, I recommend.

A little worn, but has charm and character”
Convenient, inexpensive
As you walk through the hallways and stairwells, it’s hard not to believe you are in an art gallery, since this hotel has more paintings than most galleries. I can’t speak to the quality since I am not an expert, but they do entertain. The range is from modern, modern-ish, weird to copies of old masters. Equally the dining room could be an antique shop, having all range of furniture, lamps, clocks, statues, knick-knacks and of course more paintings. All of this creates the charm and compensates for the somewhat shabby rooms. The location is very convenient, less than a mile from the old city and Kazimierz district so easily walkable. At the end of the street is a main road intersection, with numerous tram and bus lines available. Don’t count on the restaurant however, since if the chef is sick, then it will be closed.

Romantisch, historisch en sfeervol”
Mooi gelegen, nostalgidche atmosfeer, goede keuken
mooi hotel, prachtige eetzaal, goede kamers, nooit buitenterras en vriendelijke bediening maken dit hotel in principe tot een aanrader.helaas had ik de pech een kamer te treffen waar een vlooienplaag heerste zodat ik zwaar onder de bulten mijn verblijf negatief moest beoordelen. de reactie van de hotelleiding was erg lauw ondanks het gereclameerd van een vrouwelijke collega uit krakow die dit hotel had aanbevolen en als arts weinig ingenomen was met het lot dat mij trof. ik had meer begrip van het management verwacht en een zekere compensatie voor dit pijnlijke ongemak zou niet hebben misstaan.

위치는 바벨성 바로 맞은편에 있으며 , 아침 조식이 매우 잘 나옵니다. 프론드 데스크도 친절합니다. 주인이 유대인입니다.
바벨성 맞은편에 위치해있고, 중앙역에서는 걸어서 20분입니다. 아침 조식 부페가 매우 잘 나옵니다. 스탭들도 매우 친절합니다. 쉽들러 리스트 거리를 구경할 수 있는 유대인 동네에 매우 가깝습니다. 참고로 주인이 유대인이며, 삼성급이상의 호텔로서 가치는 충분히 합니다. 조용하고 아늑합니다.
