    Hotel Stary Krakow - great hotel
    Great hotel - beautifully crafted interiors. Spa was excellent and all staff incredibly friendly and helpful. One small thing is letting down the 5 star experience - there are only coffee machines in the suites. Please think about adding into all the rooms - even if you charge for the capsules!

    Underground cellar pool!!
    The pictures of the pool area do not do the place justice, absolutely fantastic and I was sad to leave. There is no other place I would stay in Krakow

    Excellent - would stay again.
    Great pool. Excellent food and service. Only (slight) criticism is that the room was a little dark.

    Fantastic from start to finish, hotel is very well placed to the square, beds super comfy! Nice little bar in hotel. Only disappointment was the roof top bar was closed. We will certainly be back.

    Hotel Stary - Fantastic
    The 5* Hotel Stary is one fabulous hotel. Located only a stones throw from the main square in Krakow, it ozzes quality & class. From the automatically opened wood & glass doors as you arrive to the Sky Bar on the rooftop, the place is highly impressive & has the WoW factor. The pool & salt, sauna & steam rooms in the cellar are there for you to use & relax in after a hard day sight seeing. Even if you don't use them, go have a look at the settings as they are stunning. The rooms are spacious & have everything you would expect from a top quality hotel. We will be going back to Krakow at some point & there is only one place we'll be staying.
