My husband and I stayed here only one night but it was one, glorious night. The rooms are beautifully maintained slices of history with all of the modern amenities. The beds are lux and comfy, and the high ceilings provide a romantic and inspired ambience. We stayed in Jan. - so it was quiet. In fact, the whole city was... More

We stayed in Suite 103 which has two rooms (one large bedroom with an equally large bed, secondly a living room where the sofa got turned into two beds for the kids. 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

The Hotel Copernicus is a quaint hotel located within sight of Wawel Castle and the former residence of Pope John Paul II when he was the bishop of Krakow . It is a few minutes walk from the famed Cracovian Market Square. It's location is certainly 5 star. By European standards, the size of the room (if you are in... More

I just love the Relais & Chateaux properties. The Hotel Copernicus is that chain's only property in Poland. They chose wisely, since Krakow is such a beautiful and charming (small) city. The hotel itself is lovely and enjoys possibly the perfect location -- just 5 mins' walk from Wawel Castle and 10 minutes (maximum) from the beautiful market square. The... More

We recently spent 4 nights at the Copernicus and with that length of time, it really began to feel like home. Our room faced the street, which gave us good natural light and a lovely view (and with good air conditioning in the room, we could close the windows and drapes and sleep quietly and peacefully at night). The room... More
