Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Polski Pod Białym Orłem

ul. Pijarska 17, Kraków, Malopolska, 31–015, Poland

Located within the medieval city walls—opposite the open-air art gallery by the Floriańska gate, "Under the White Eagle" is simple and unpretentious. An inn of the same name existed here in the 18th century; today the hotel is again the property of the Czartoryskis, the same family who founded the famous museum next door. It remains among the more affordable accommodations options within the Old Town. Throughout are reproduction antiques, color schemes that rival those seen in a box of old-fashioned bonbons, rich parquet floors, and plenty of fresh flowers.
