I truly have never stayed in such a superb hotel - the design, quality of workmanship in the building, staff, everything was absolutely top class.
One of the most eagerly awaited hotels of 2006 has now opened its exotic wooden doors.
Don't miss the James Bond swimming pool in the cellars.... The spa is extremely unique, and the massage in a salt cave was exceptional. The staff at the reception desk were extremely professional and helpful, I didn't feel exactly the same way about restaurant staff though. Reading all the previous comments, I don't have much to add. The spa facilities outstanding, though the pool a little bit small - so make sure you will get there early. The touch of the chocolates and the Molton Brown products are a nice touch also. This is by far the best hotel in Krakow, and one of the nicest looking ones I've been in Europe!
We had a great time though and the Hotel is a fantastic gem.
The Hotel Stary took my breath away when I stayed here in September.
The staff are fantasic--very friendly and accomodating. All it needs is a shark swimming around it and you'd have the perfect set for a James Bond movie! Exquisite design and service that would not be out of place in the very best boutique hotels of the world.
The indoor pool in the basement must be seen and may be outdone only by the view from the outdoor rooftop bar. Brilliant place to stay - easily the most luxurious hotel in Krakow these days. I understand that this hotel has only just opened, but I'm convinced that within a matter of months this will become the flagship hotel in Krakow that all the big stars will want to stay in - the Ritz of Krakow!
The bathrooms are exisquite with large tubs, separate showers and L'Occitaine bath products.
The breakfust buffet is very nice and dinner is incredible. As a regular business traveller with 5 star tastes, it is no small praise which I lavish on this boutique hotel, its services, and staff.....second to none, its ambience superb..finest hotel of its type I have encountered on the continent You just HAVE to see the swimming pool in the basement.

Local Life Krakow is about to select candidates for Best Places awards, dedicated to rewarding and encouraging excellence in products, service and ideas. Rooms have been furnished in a cool contemporary style, and all the requisite 5 star perks can be enjoyed. Also, the manager contacted us with wedding planner at the beginning of our adventure with the hotel so it helped us a lot. I've spent a beautiful weekend here with my fiance. My best friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and were treated like princess's the rooms are so unique, fresh and clean.
I gather that there is a very chic bar on the roof but it was a tad too chilly to linger at this time of the year! I stayed in the Stary in August and was not impressed at all.
