I spent three nights here on business. It's a fine hotel in a nice part of the Old Town. My room had nice furniture, ample space, great toiletries, and was super clean. Breakfast could have been better. Not a lot of fruit and the pancakes and waffles looked like they came out of a frozen pak. Service throughout the hotel...

For a weekend break the Copernicus is a nice hotel. We stayed here for 3 nights in early September and very much enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very conveniently located being less than a 5 min walk to the Castle and less than 10 to the main square. The public areas are well maintained and very clean although the...

I have to state, how people can rate a hotel or resort without seeing, experiencing any other hotesl or resorts in that destination. While I was in Krakow I visited 7 other resorts, did mini site inspections. Now, the Copernicus was wonderful! Each staff member outshined the other. The main Star was Joanna Wilgierz, General Manager who greeted everyone &...

This Relais & Chateau hotel is located just under Wawel Castle at the edge of Old Town Karkow. When I was there with my husband back in the mid '90s, we rented a flat but ate in the hotel's dining room. We were so pleased with it we decided to stay at the hotel this time around. The prices are...

Hotel Copernicus was to be the highlight of our visit to Poland. Having done considerable research we were really looking forward to our choice of hotel for Krakow. Well located certainly but not what you expect for Relais and Chateau. Our twin bedded room was dark with only a window onto the hall. We had arrived on a delayed train...

I wanted to love this hotel. It's perfectly situated within a few blocks of the Main Square. It's an appealing smash-up of ancient and relentlessly modern, with exposed pipes worming their way through wrought iron balustrades. The Copernicus is a Relais et Chateaux hotel, with all the upsides of romantic settings and appearance, wonderful restaurant and the feeling of being...

This hotel is the best we have stayed at during our travel through Eastern Europe. The rooms are large, quiet and elegant. The breakfasts are very good. The location can't be beat. And the pool and sauna in the catacombs are very atmospheric. It is worth coming here just to enjoy this hotel.
