What Guests Say

  • "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 wonderful surprise.".
    Cynthia Madsen
  • "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).".
    Emmanuel Kierzkowski
  • "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.".
