The property is perfectly located just steps from central Market Square. It's an old building unique decorated to offer an amazing atmosphere. Avoid junior suites as they are located on the roof so there are no windows but just roof glasses for light. The sloping roof of the suites is depressing and leaves a lot of space unused Breakfast is...

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in a beautiful suite on the 6th Floor. There was a stunning roof bar terrace serving an array of fantastic cocktails. The team could not do enough for you. Location wax excellent 1 minute walk from the beautiful square in Krakow. We will definitely return to this stunning hotel

We stayed for a long weekend in May 2017 and really liked the hotel. Seems relatively new, nice big rooms, good breakfast with own egg-person (omelettes or fried) and nice coffee, and a pretty cool spa area with pool, gym and sauna. Beds were big and comfy and bathroom was super. A bit pricy compared to other hotels in Krakow...

We stayed on the top floor right next to the roof terrace and was surprised we could not hear the bar. Best part of our stay was the hotels restaurant where we had breakfast and the best dinner and service you could want..

Just had a week here. Yes the location is superb, and taste is very subjective. If you like "brown rooms" (3 layers hessian curtains, brown floor, brown walls) and cold marble absolutely everywhere you walk and look, then you will like this hotel. Personally we found it cold and unattractive. The layout is strange to say the least, the hotel...

To keep it simple: almost everything about this hotel is very positive. Once you've made it by car (you need to drive into the restricted area of Krakow) all works very well. Staff: very friendly, helpful and competent Spa: I'd say it is kind of exceptional to find a spa like this under the building. Not very big, but very...

First of all I would like to brief about this review. My girlfriend and I took a 21 day trip, paid in cash and in advance, around Europe. She´s a dermathologist and I´m a hotel manager. It´s not always easy or relaxing for me to travel since I have very high expectations regarding service standards. I always keep my eyes...

Everything about this hotel was perfect, location, food, the room etc.The staff were very helpful and friendly, they gave us recommendations everyday of where to visit, where to eat. On the day of our arrival they even allowed us to change rooms to a bigger suite which was more to our preference. The spa was beautiful and very relaxing, and...

We were on a long weekend from the UK. We nearly always stay in 5 star albeit that doesn't always guarantee high-end. The Stary was a very stylish hotel - a modern, clean, high-end hotel with a cool post-Communist styling. We had a junior suite which was spacious & well appointed. Extended check out was easily arranged. The location is...
