We stayed in a very nice stylish designer room. The bathroom is really special. What we liked most was the indoor swimming pool set in an old cellar with the vault ceiling done with red bricks. Breakfast gorgeous. Location perfect near to the main square.

Having read the previous reviews I can only agree with everything that has been said. Great location , modern comfortable room ,very good bathroom. 10 out of 10 for the breakfast, we didn't eat in the hotel restaurant but it did look a very nice menu and if the breakfast was anything to go by I'm sure 5 star.

This is a small, modern hotel that features tons of amenities just a few yards from Krakow's main square. The rooms are good sized and feature spa-like bathrooms, a fully stocked mini-bar, and plenty of outlets. Guests can go to the roof top for some sunlight and see a near-total panoramic view of Krakow, or go to the basement for... More

Great location, superb and spacious room, amazing breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. The gym is a bit small but the pool, sauna and steam room create a peaceful oasis after a busy day of intense sightseeing. I highly recommend Hotel Stary.

This is a great hotel situated just a few yards from the Old town Market square. Beautifully appointed large rooms, comfy beds and immaculately clean. Thoroughly recommend this hotel to everyone. Enjoy!

Stayed at Stary in a junior suite for three nights early June 2014. Wonderful location close to the main square. Very nice room; lots of space. Helpful and attentive personnel. Good breakfast - tip: order also from the menu. Fresh fruits in the room. Both shower & jacuzzi bathtub in the bathroom - nice. The free wi-fi disconnected sometimes in... More

Never have I before been denied access to the room I had reserved 4 months earlier, but this happened at Hotel Stary. Not due to late arrival, at I arrived at noon. Instead I was offered a room at their 4-star sister hotel, and had no other choice than to accept. To be rejected after having prepaid the room is... More

We stayed at Hotel Stary for 3 nights in May 2014. The hotel is a mix of modern and old, with lots of exposed brickwork, glass and concrete. Our bedroom was large, but with minimalist décor, rather reminiscent of a student hall of residence circa 1970! The public rooms were airy and light and the breakfast buffet was very good,... More

Had my most expensive glass of wine at the Sky Bar at the Stary hotel - 25 zloty. It was a nice place to sit and has an oblique view of the square, peacefully looking down on the hustle and bustle! Furniture and outside are are clean and comfortable

It was my second stay at this hotel. I appreciate the location, the breakfast and the spa of the hotel very much. However this time I had to complain about the guests next to my room, who arrived very late and celebrate till early in the morning. I expected that the reception would take my phone calls more seriously, however... More
