We recently spent 4 nights at the Copernicus and with that length of time, it really began to feel like home. Our room faced the street, which gave us good natural light and a lovely view (and with good air conditioning in the room, we could close the windows and drapes and sleep quietly and peacefully at night). The room was very good sized and furnished with traditional, historic decor which made for a nice mood, even if a litlte dark. We had some comfortable sitting chairs in the room, but no lamps for them, so we couldn't really use them to read. But there was a great desk and excellent wifi, which doesn't always happen in Europe. The bathroom was also good size, in beautiful condition, with everything working perfectly, heated floor, lots of towels (replaced at turn-down service) and terrific L'Occitante toiletries.
The public spaces in the hotel are fairly limited in space, but they never felt crowded, even at breakfast in the atrium. Breakfast staff were very attentive, with lovely table settings and very nice buffet. The dishes cooked to order were amazing - the best eggs in a long time and really delicious lattes. If the hotel were full, I think the breakfast area could get a little congested, but that was not a concern in early May. The buffet (plus cooked-to-order items) offered plenty to eat and while some of the giant business hotels might have a lot more choices, I sometimes find them "too much" anyway.
The Copernicus is very tasteful, elegant and in a perfect location. We had already made arrangements for walking tours and evening concerts, but the hotel staff still offered anything else we might need. All were friendly without going too far or intervening too much.....and all seemed genuinely pleased to help guests enjoy Krakow.
