From historic hotels hiding in the grounds of palatial mansions belonging to Krakow’s noble families to luxurious and opulent heritage hotels with a penchant for all things boutique, this list of the top places to stay in Poland’s second city is nothing if not eclectic. Welcome to the Slavic city of kings…
Set just 10 minutes by foot back from the Planty Park and the start of the Krakow Old Town, in a quiet and peaceful section of the city centre, Cracowdays offers a range of boutique rooms. They’re all done out in chic, contemporary décor that borrows a little from the classic Polish interior styles – think exposed brick walls and cavernous ceilings. Each suite has stylish bathrooms, and access to large communal areas that are set over two floors.
