Stary Krakow

Cracovians watched with fascination as this grand but dilapidated old mansion located next to the Market Square was slowly brought back to life. Since opening its doors in 2006, Hotel Stary has taken its place as one of the very top spots in town. It comes from the team that brought you Copernicus and Pod Roza, so commitment to excellence is a given. They've gone for a more contemporary approach here, although many rooms also have charming relics from the days when this was a private residence. Swimming pools, rooftop bars and a host of other extras guarantee that this will be memorable for the right reasons.

Great location and high on the cool factor visually but rooms not all that comfortable and issues with shower flooding bathroom floor.

Wendy cooper 10th October 2016

Ideal location right by the Main Square. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The rooms were spacious, very clean and equipped well

Dana Kempton 4th July 2016

We did find the breakfast extremely uncorcerned about their customers. No one ever approached us about ordering a hot item. I had to go to the staff to get a cup of coffee.

Guest 6th May 2016

Superb! However, the one note I'd like to mention is that upon checkin, I was given a room facing another room. The porter was going to give me a new key and take my items to my new room; I ended up getting everything myself. Otherwise, great service, wonderful breakfast, nice gym.

Guest 15th October 2015

very nice hotel well located

Neil Wilks 9th September 2015

Excellent hotel, better than the Ritz, London,more friendly, but also more classy, except our room which was beautifully furnished but was a triumph of design over practicality. Very few and badly positioned electric plugs and a roof window with a blind which did not keep out the early morning light

Peter Dobson 5th August 2015

Sadly on two nights the roof bar was closed for a private function. Very frustrating !

Guest 8th May 2014

pros: location, lovely swimming pool, breakfast, modern, excellent restaurant neg: got a suite with only one small window (1m wide), a bit disappointed for the price we paid, but management was helpful and we could change our room after 2days for the last night (3rd day)

Guest 20th September 2012

The Stary is fantastic. My single room was bigger than some double rooms at other hotels where I've stayed. Decor is stunning. The Spa is wonderful - so lovely swimming in the cellars! Dining room - breakfast excellent; Dinner superb. Staff very good. Location excellent. An easy walk from Krakow station. All in all I really recommend the Hotel.

Guest 15th August 2012

After check-out and reaching our next destination city, a family member noticed their camera missing. I e-mailed the hotel simply asking whether they discovered a camera in the lobby where we had last gathered but received no response. Assume no camera was discovered or they had no interest in responding. Hotel had no disable cups affording the enjoyment of a morning beverage elsewhere in the hotel prior to gathering for breakfast in the dining room. Please share my comments with hotel management

Guest 14th July 2012

The best hotel 7 service that we have ever had during our 76 years. It was for our Golden QWedding and it could not have been better

Guest 12th June 2012

brilliant location

Catherine Mairs 21st May 2012

loved this hotel in a great location on the edge of the old town square. This restaurant had great food if you just felt like staying in for a quiet night. The staff were helpful & friendly. The hotel has preserved an old building but managed to create light, comfort & warmth.

Guest 27th April 2012

Brilliant service, gorgeous decor, lovely breakfasts, the htoel staff could not do enough for us!

Guest 17th April 2012

Delicious breakfast, stylish hotel, but please ask for a room not facing the street as it is incredibly noisy. Ask for a room on fifth or sixth floor.

Guest 3rd April 2012

Fine hotel but absence of wi fi in the rooms is unacceptable in a hotel of this stature (and cost)

Guest 24th August 2011

We loved everything about the hotel! Central, clean, super service, outstanding food in the restaurant etc.

Guest 20th July 2011

Thanks for all your help Everyone was extra helpful and went overboard in helping with our transportation needs. Highly recommend

Guest 19th July 2011

The Hotel Stary has a very accommodating and hospitable staff. The air conditioning in my room (#412, I think) was fantastic, and much appreciated!

Elaine Byrne 11th July 2011

Beautiful hotel, very pleasant staff and food was gorgeous.

Zeina Raad 26th June 2011

The staff were the best thing about the hotel with the facilities, i wish the rooms were bigger and brighter, it was hard to get ready for a wedding in the dark!

Guest 16th June 2011

The hotel is very nice, the staff very helpful and pleasant, but the bathroom has very little counter space.

Guest 24th May 2011

The Stary Hotel is a lovely place to stay. Close to the Main Square, with a gorgeous pool and leisure facilities. The staff were very friendly, gave myself and my partner a free upgrade because it was our anniversay, which was a mwonderful surprise.

Emmanuel Kierzkowski 6th May 2011

L'hôtel est idéalement placé, à 100 m à peine de la place du Rynek. L'aménagement intérieur de l'hôtel est moderne et magnifique, les architectes ayant réussi brillamment à tirer partie de cette ancienne bâtisse du 17ème siècle, en conservant des voutes, des murs de briques, etc... Le spa au sous-sol est exceptionnel (notamment la piscine).

Mark Jones 9th February 2011

Well designed, professional. Let down by some small details - no fresh juice or proper coathangers. Service in bar a little slow

Daniel Melia 21st December 2010

Excellent room. Excellent breakfast. Helpful staff. Need more heat in room 101.

Guest 3rd August 2010

Excellent room, very good food, perfect location. Would highly recommend.

Toby Weller 1st August 2010

Amazing building / great service / friendly and efficient staff

Guest 18th July 2010

Lovely hotel but thought front desk service could have better, and the bar on the terrace was a big disappointment, the cocktails were below par, the service lousy and it closed at 11pm, fat too early.

Barbara Moore 21st June 2010

We loved the hotel, rooms really comfortable and got a room with balcony as requested. Breakfast was excellent. All the staff very helpful. Would certainly stay there again.

Harold Phillips 18th February 2010

We liked the hotel very much. I found difficulty operating the lighting but that is probably my lack of technical expertise. The room was comfortable and the bahroom excellent
