Certainly Michelin star quality set on a lovely old street near the castle . Had five course menu but with three extra chef specials . Top food well presented great service Pricey by Kraków standards but well worth it. A delight.

near the Vavel castle with a great interior and with a very friendly staff. We took a coffey with sweets in a room arranged as in time when Copernicus lived in this house as a student at the University (now Jagiellonian University), Department of Arts (from 1491 until 1495) and after, in astronomical-mathematical school. All is shown - books in... More

Hotel Copernicus is on the oldest street in Kraków and itself in an old building. Although modernized - plumbing, electrical, AC, bathrooms - the building retains its charm. Our room was as large as an apartment including a foyer, sitting room, large bedroom and huge bathroom. However, be careful about the room you are assigned as others in the group... More

What an amazing place! My husband booked the hotel as a surprise 50th birthday treat and he could not have found us anywhere better.

This is quite 5 star service. You will want for nothing. If you get a chance to stay do not pass up the chance. If you can stay in one of the fresco suite it is worth the money. The hotel arranged a car pick up at the airport for us at a very reasonable rate. If I got back... More

Amazing hotel. The history alone is breathtaking, but it is woven into a contemporary hotel with all the amenities one could want; classic and historic decor, amazing spa, fabulous food and walking distance to all the historic sites and squares. Only drawback was the lack of a gym. Otherwise literally zero complaints. Expensive for Krakow, but a European bargain for... More

This hotel has arguably one of the best and most charming locations in Krakow. In fact, Pope John Paul II once lived along this quiet street. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of a lovingly renovated, several centuries old building where its namesake Nicolaus Copernicus once lodged.
