I have stayed here 3 times in Krakow and don't know why you would want to stay anywhere else. This is not just the best hotel in the area its my favourite hotel in the world. I love it. The rooms are really cool and nice. Comfiest bed Ive ever slept on. Nice bathroom with a jacuzzi in the bath,... More

This hotel is in one of the best location to be amongst the old town and main square. The rooms are fantastic and if you can ask for an upgrade to a suit, you will be blown away! Wait until you swim in the basement cellar and take a sauna!!! The staff are very friendly and speak very good English.... More

Stayed for 3 nights Stylishly Refurbished house off main square. Top location. Stayed on room 600 on top floor. Found lighting system very annoying and not bright enough. Also no blackout curtains and roof lights in entrance could not be covered, so expect early wake up call in summer unless deep sleepers! Bed not that comfortable and not 5 star... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night on a business trip in March 2014. I did not try any of the wellness / spa offerings. This is is what I liked about the hotel: 1. Very convenient to pedestrian zone / main square of Krakow. 2. Beautifully styled and elegant. 3. Quiet room (at least mine was very quiet!).... More

This was our second time to stay at the Stary in Krakow. this time we brought the family. great hotel. friendly staff. great location, 30 meters from the main square. The breakfast is the best buffet we have seen for a long time. Hopefully we will be back soon.

So my visit to the Hotel Stary was the first hotel I’ve stayed at in Poland, as this visit to Krakow was my first time in Poland, and I have to admit, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Before I booked, I had been looking at staying at this hotel (due to it’s location, and because the England football team... More

Am staying at the hotel at the moment with my wife. We are 3 days into our 5 day stay and cannot recommend this hotel enough. The location is superb - just of the main square and within walking distance of everything you would want to see in the old town. When we pulled up outside in our taxi we... More

We stayed in the Hotel Stary for 4 nights last summer. It was our first time in Krakow (it is a beautiful city and is not to be missed!) and we chose the hotel based on reviews. The Hotel Stary has a number of things going for it-- it is a lovely renovation of a 15th century building and you... More

As a first-timer in Krakow, Hotel Stary (along with the location and the christmas spirit) made me fall in love with Poland. We came 23rd of December as a family of 6 adults, and did not know what to expect for the holiday, but a friendly, service-minded and professional staff welcomed us to a wonderful stay. The hotel is situated... More
