Amazing hotel. Great location.

Hote Copernicus
Stayed here for about a week with my family for Christmas. Beautiful location in a centuries-old residence. Very handsome interior with beautiful furnishings. Extremely well located with Wawel Castle right out your door. But the best part is the folks who work there—as friendly and helpful as they come. This is where I’m staying when I come back to Krakow.

Great hotel in a great location
The location of the hotel was wonderful. This was within very short distance from the castle as well as Old Town. When I decided to take a tour of the salt mine, the staff went out of their way to help me set it up. I would recommend the hotel for location and the quality of the hotel itself.

Perfect Place to Unwind
This hotel is perfectly located on a quiet street in the Old Town between the Market and Wawel Hill so you're amongst the hussle and bussle of Krakow whilst also being able to retreat to chilled out quietness. The decor of the hotel is traditional and sophisticated and the vibe is super chilled. The staff are beyond helpful. On our arrival we were taken to our room where the concierge took the time to show us where everything was and how it worked. It was exceptional service. The staff were also great at arranging our excursions. The spa is like a quiet underground grotto and the pool is really lovely to swim in. It's not a big pool but during our stay we were the only people ever in it. The spa treatments were also next level - the Wieliczka salt scrub is a must. A week on and my skin still feels amazing. I can't wait to come back to Krakow and stay here again.

Very good 8.0
A good option for a short break in the city centre
Small and quaint hotel. Very conveniently located close to the Market Square. Public areas a bit cramped with limited comfortable seating. Room clean, quiet and well equipped but a bit dark and cramped with windows to the central atrium rather than to the outside. Nice ambience though and the pool was quirky but no steam room, just a sauna. Service very good.

One of the best hotels we have stayed at. Great massages at the spa!
