I just love the Relais & Chateaux properties. The Hotel Copernicus is that chain's only property in Poland. They chose wisely, since Krakow is such a beautiful and charming (small) city. The hotel itself is lovely and enjoys possibly the perfect location -- just 5 mins' walk from Wawel Castle and 10 minutes (maximum) from the beautiful market square. The...

We recently spent 4 nights at the Copernicus and with that length of time, it really began to feel like home. Our room faced the street, which gave us good natural light and a lovely view (and with good air conditioning in the room, we could close the windows and drapes and sleep quietly and peacefully at night). The room...

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your detailed opinion on Trip Advisor and your kind remarks. We are planning to change a little bit the beds structure and make the bath/shower combination during the next reconstruction that will definitely improve the comfort of watching TV laying in bed and taking bath/shower.

This is a lovely hotel in a prime location, but our stay was not great. It got off to a bad start because my wife could find no instructions on the website on how to access it.

Lovely small boutique hotel with a great location in the old city. Most of the desk staff helpful. Great restaurants and main square within walking distance. Our room faced the street; it was a bit noisy at night. Cellar pool very romantic. Breakfasts overpriced.
