We recently had 3 nights at this hotel. It is conveniently located between the Wavel Palace and Old Town. Lots of restaurants close by that offered a god selection of food and wine, reasonably priced. Also close to a number of tour operators which is important in Kraków as there is so much to do. Our room was very spacious,... More

After the last stay I thought this would be my go to hotel in Krakow. The place itself is breathtaking, the service impeccable and the food is heaven on a plate. The room I got this time, as beautiful as it was, did not allow for much sleep. Located directly above the private dining room (where a wedding dinner took... More

Hotel Copernicus is located on Ulica Kanonicza, one of Kraków's oldest streets. Its houses and mansions are a prime example of Renaissance architecture, however Copernicus sports a gothic facade. It is named after Mikołaj Kopernik, the famous astronomer and proponent of Heliocentrism, who stayed at the property when visiting Kraków. The house is tastefully restored and features all the modern... More

On a first visit to Poland we selected this hotel as a central point. Couldn't fault this, staff were professional but friendly & nothing was too much trouble. Room was spacious & immaculate, only slight criticism was not much of a view. Having said that this didn't matter too much as we were keen to explore Kraków on foot! We... More

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.
