Just returned from a wonderful short break in krakow where we stayed at the very charming Copernicus hotel. The hotel itself is ideally located to get around town, the staff are very friendly and willing to help with suggestions. The room we had (105) was very clean and spacious with comfy beds... Personally I prefer a slightly firmer bed but... More

Stayed here for few nights. Quiet and peaceful place to come back, after a long day of sightseeing. Located close to Wawel Castle and good as a home base. Room was very good, clean and comfortable, fluffy towels and l'Occitane soaps and shampoos were there. There is a roof terrace with incredible views of Wawel Hill and church towers. Every... More

Delightful hotel with very helpful and friendly staff centrally located in a quiet street. Room (306) and bathroom very spacious. Good quality robes and towels. Superb amenities (L’Occitane). Beside a ceiling window, the room had a very small window (approx 40cm x 30cm) which was the only one we could open. It felt a bit claustrophobic. Suspicious spots on red... More

This arrangement worked fine for us). The hotel is very well situated down the hill from the castle and only a stroll away from the main streets. Kids... More
