It is a perfect adaptation of the old castle for the contemporary, modern hotel. Some architectural ideas are amazing and giving the best note for this ambition project. For me absolutely spectacular is library, with pretty nice collection of books, successfully arranged in one of the towers. River cruise by motorboat and astronomy show, there are other unique elements in the rich offer for the hotel`s guests. From the other side, the swimming pool with it`s facilities seems to be below expectation. The standard double room, we have occupied, was rather small, with narrow and too hard beds. The bathrooms was nice and very elegant. The hotel restaurant, located in the cellar, offers average food, both for dinner and for breakfast. The staff works professionally, but sometimes they are too serious, even severe. Anyway, it is the place worth visiting, mainly because of great architecture and astonishing attractions.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Krasicki Hotel**** lies in the heart of Lidzbark Warmiński, a town known for ages as the Pearl of Warmia. This idyllically-located hotel lies where the Lyna and Symsarna Rivers fork, marks the historical outer ward of the seat of the Warmian Bishops - and is a most precious tangible testimony to the history of Warmia and Masuria. The style of the elegant rooms and apartments of the Gothic and Baroque section of the Hotel refer to the original aesthetics of the building's construction. Their names recall the eminent guests of Lidzbark Castle: King Leszczyński, Sigismund III Vasa, John Sigismund of Hohenzollern, Tsar Paul I... Here these historical figures gave in to the pleasures of the body and soul, admired nature, watched the sky of Warmia, drank exquisite wine, listened to concerts, discussed, read... And this is what our guests too may do today. They have at their disposal 125 rooms providing altogether accommodation for 250 visitors. The BIBLIOTEKA Cafe and ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY are unique offers. The BIBLIOTEKA Cafe's impressive book collection welcomes readers of carefully-chosen literature of the world. A book with a cup of coffee or, favoured by "the Prince of poets", hot chocolate, undoubtedly tastes exceptional in such surroundings. The astronomical observatory, open-to-visitors, which is located in the clock tower, pays tribute to the author of heliocentric theory once residing in the Castle, the eminent astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus. The tower OBSERVATION DECK also allows one to fully take pleasure in the beautiful scenery of Lidzbark Warmiński and its surroundings. Famous for her outstanding beauty, Saint Catherine left in her old books recipes for preserving looks and vitality. The SPA&WELLNESS centre, located on the ground floor, gives our guests a chance to surrender to relaxing rituals, recover, and find a harmony of the body and soul. The lovers of baths can opt for a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, or gym, while enthusiasts of high temperatures can visit a sauna complex. Inspired by regional customs and always based on top quality ingredients, our cuisine combines traditional methods with advanced culinary techniques. It mirrors the character of the locality, but also draws on all parts of the world. Dressed with seasonal vegetables and fruit, it offers a pleasantly memorable experience to our guests within the interiors of the elegant RESTAURANT, CLUB HALL WITH WINE BAR and LOBBY BAR. The WOODEN BRIDGE of the Hotel over the castle moat is an inherent part of the extraordinary history; while the castle marina offers GONDOLA RIDES along the picturesque and beautifully located Lyna River. For those who like to combine rest with work, the KRASICKI Hotel has prepared a wide range of conference services (7 air-conditioned rooms with equipment and technical services). It is here, in the castle, where several great leaders and diplomats from Poland and Europe have met: Jan Dantyszek, Stanisław Hozjusz, Marcin Kromer, John Albert Vasa, Charles XII of Sweden, and Napoleon Bonaparte. In the KRASICKI Hotel tradition meets the present, as such was the nature of its host - Krasicki, an outstanding man of the Enlightenment, a poet, prose writer and essayist. With his interests and excellent style he has moved not only specialists in Polish studies but also journalists, politicians, clergy, teachers, economists, art admirers and representatives of many other professions. The KRASICKI Hotel is the heart of life and hospitality. The cultural and historical enclave is honoured to welcome you today. The rich history of Warmia, its monuments and nature, the magic of Lidzbark Warmiński with its surroundings, the gondola rides on the Lyna River or a walk down the Symsarna River valley all contribute to the charm of this outstanding residence, filling the moments spent at the KRASICKI Hotel with positive emotions. ... more less
