We booked two rooms at the Hotel Stary in August of 2016. I was attracted by the website when booking and was not disappointed. We stayed in the modern wing that incorporated the historical features of the original building. Very modern in a 14th century building. I would have loved to see the historic rooms. Never having been to Poland...

Possibly the best 5-star hotel in Krakow. Absolutely fantastic room, super high ceiling with murals, very spacious, modern bathroom with heated floor, amazing spa with pool, professional and curteous service, not to mention prime location(at rynek). Highly recommend!!!

I spent 3 nights at the hotel.I liked it. The room was good and had enough space. the place had ancient views and paintings on walls. I liked the place and even the price was good and the staff were helpful too.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary in Krakow this year - absolutely beautiful. This hotel was really lovely. The room was enormous and the bathroom fab. My only criticism was the hotel was a little lacking in atmosphere. The location was superb though. All good!!

A stone throw from the Main Market Square in Kraków, its monuments and restaurants, the Stary Hotel offers great rooms. A minus - like in its sister hotel Copernicus - there should be more light in the bathroom!

We like to combine a city break with a European xmas market each year and this year my wife chose Poland. I was initially sceptical but I needn't have been. The Hotel is beautiful on the inside with a nice mix of old and new. Large rooms with fantastic wooden floors and a very modern bathroom with a huge bath....

I booked this for a birthday trip away and decided due to the value of Krakow to upgrade to a slightly nicer accommodation than I normally would have done. In short this hotel was excellent. Prior to the trip I asked them to arrange a birthday message and a bottle of prosecco. It was very well organised and didnt need...
