    We chose this hotel for the swimming pool/spa and we were not disappointed. We had such a relaxing break and the pool/sauna/steam room was a very good way to unwind. The hotel was near the river and our room overlooked it, we had a glorious walk to Shindlers factory which was just a ten minute walk over the river.

    - modern design - good price, incl. free access to the swimming pool & sauna - delicious breakfast - bird tweeting sound in the lift and in the bathroom :-) - coffee maker in the room - close to the city center (ca 25 min. by walk)

    Very clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much hassle. The breakfast buffet is excellent. Spa and pool area immaculate brilliant value for money ! Would recommend ! Bathroom smelt a bit but they sorted this ! Happy to organise tours for you from and back to hotel, shopping centre 4 mins away on foot with restaurants inside or tram to another large shopping centre where you walk to the main square easily (less than 10 mins in tram) Close to schindlers factory !

    No milk in room for tea/ coffee, Internet included in price would be nice ! - this is all we could think of. !

    Nice structure and excellent staff for a fair price.

    The hotel is not in the proper center of the city. At any case it is well connected by tram (5 minutes walk to the stop and 5 minutes of tram trip) and taxi are very cheap.

    The pool and spa area is amazing, a great way to relax and unwind after a day sightseeing in Krakow. The breakfast was excellent, good variety, both hot and cold, good quality. The reception staff were really helpful, providing us with detailed directions to the salt mines using public transport.

    Naked couple in the Steamroom on our last night - not a pleasant sight!

    Great swimming / whirlpool / sauna facility! Great breakfasts!

    Extra payment (5EUR per night) for internet in standard rooms is not a nice surprise.

    Room and bathroom. Mainly location was very close to my business.

    The prerecorded Bird noise in lifts.

    New and stylish rooms. Very nice staff. Great breakfast. I can strongly recommend this hotel.

    The only point for improvment could be the gym. I had also been nice with free wifi in the rooms.

    Galaxy Hotel was the perfect choice for us. Staff were exceptionally helpful/friendly at all times. The rooms were spotless and the pool/facilities were fantastic. It is right next to an enormous shopping centre which many food outlets aswell as shops. It is around a 10 minute walk into the Jewish district or 15 into the main square. Staff were particularly helpful with directions.

    The only English speaking channel was the news on loop! A film channel would have been nice.

    Hotel excellent, all ОК: both the personnel, and conditions, breakfasts too. Pool with the spa-centre - simply super, had a rest and have relaxed on the full.

    The only thing, that not so was pleasant - a bar and restaurant, are rather weak.
