This hotel provides you with quality in every way imaginable. We stayed here for one night to get out of our everyday life in the pandemic, and after using their welness spa, their gym and their amazing restaurant we feel absolutely rejuvinated. It was just what we needed. The hotel receptionist even showed us the locked roof top on request. The food was outstanding. You should try the lime sorbet and pistachio dessert. You can really notice that Stary Hotel is a unique gem in Krakow. The atmosphere and the architecture and the design is sustained and well thought through. You can really tell that they are proud of what they do here, and they should be. Thank you for this lovely stay. We will come back.

I don’t give many 5/5 reviews but this place ticked every box. It was beautiful. The room was amazing. Clean. Well decorated and luxuriant. The roof top bar overlooking the main town square was lovely. The gym and pool were one of the best I have seen in a vaulted ceiling environment. Plus sauna and steam room. Everything was immaculate and it was in the corner of the main town square. It couldn’t be in a more convenient location. Only one place to stay if you visit Kraków and that’s here

We visited this hotel in September for a few nights away from the u.k and from the moment we arrived we knew it was a good choice of hotel, greeted by a lovely young lady who was super helpful, rooms cleaned daily , the spa was just so relaxing and the rooftop bar was just amazing. I cant wait to return and will 100% be coming back to hotel stary.

Stylish, comfortable hotel with the amazing location next to the main square. Great facilities including small gym and beautiful underground spa. Unlike most hotels in UK these days that jumped on the wagon of virus hysteria, pool, steam and sauna operate normally, towels, bathrobes available in spa. Also unlike UK, rooms serviced daily. Highly recommended for a long weekend in beautiful civilized Krakow.

Nice hotel, fantastic location and a great spa. The "fitness club" could have been a bit bigger with more equipment, but rest of the hotel were amazing. Would also recommend a tasting menu in the restaurants with wine, fantastic!
