Stay in one of the 15 rooms and suites in this converted 13th-century palace and you’re not just a guest at a hotel, you’re a character in a fairy tale. A fairy tale in which your castle has a nightclub called “Burlesque” in the basement and a sauna on the top floor. When you’re not out examining the Gothic cathedrals of old Krakow, sit by the window at the Café Ul La La and see how many evil queens, big bad wolves or ugly ducklings wander past.
In the Area
The hotel sits in the Market Square, which is also home to the Royal Road, the most popular stroll in Krakow, which is lined with monuments from the church of St. Florian at one end to the Renaissance-era Wawel Royal Castle at the other. Most of the city’s sights can be found along the walk, but it’s also worth venturing a bit further afield, fast-forwarding through Polish history; a twenty-minute walk from the castle is Kazimierz, Krakow’s Jewish neighborhood and cultural center and home to Oskar Schindler’s factory.
How to Get There
This hotel is ABSOLUTELY lovely! Not only is it definitely a palace of a hotel, but the food is to experienced. They have a new Sushi Bar, and the Sushi Master, Raphael, is the BOMB! He utilizes REAL WASABI, not the horseradish silliness you are consuming in every other restaurant, but true wasabi. He has the best and freshest of fish, the finest caviars, and the delicate touch necessary to make your experience memorable. Try his sea bass, salmon and tuna nigiri, and Golden Dragon rolls. Also have him fix his “specialty” that he would eat...you won’t be sorry.
Back to the hotel: fabulously decorated rooms, with plenty of plugs for electronics. Great Wi-Fi, helpful staff, and right on the square in Krakow. Highly recommended.
Weekend in Krakow to celebrate wedding anniversary- booked the Bonerovski Palace for its central location.
Hotel dates from the 14 century and the interior whilst contemporary retains many of the original features - we booked an executive room and were bowled over by the opulence and size of the bedroom, lounge and bathroom - beautifully decorated and historic with views directly over the main square and the Cloth market.
We ate lunch on arrival and two evening meals in the steak and fish restaurant- very good local produce well presented and flavoured with a great choice of accompanying wines. Service throughout was first class and all staff spoke good English.
A great find and well worth the visit
The rooms are gorgeous, large, tall ceilings, beautiful soft furnishings and amenities. The location is excellent, right on the square. The staff is professional and helpful. The windows are double paned but if opened at night, it can be very noisy for sleeping. The beds were very firm and could use more padding.
We arranged to be collected from the airport by the hotel, this ran very smoothly and we were in the hotel within about 20 minutes. We were met by a very friendly receptionist who also directed us to a bar we had been recommended. We were given room 201, the room was lovely and everything we need was there. I loved the big bath and fluffy towels provided.
it was our wedding anniversary the day we arrived and we decided to have a meal in the hotel, which was lovely, the service, the food were second to none.
Breakfast was lovely in the hotel too. I think its the little touches that make this hotel special, we came down to go out one morning and the receptionist said its due to rain please take one of our umbrellas, how thoughtful
I would recommend this hotel and would return to this beautiful hotel and city
We were so pleased that we chose this hotel! We were given a fantastic room / suite in this impressive hotel, which has great facilities, history and grandeur. The location is perfect, it has great breakfasts - where we also had one lunch and one amazing evening meal - but above all the staff offered flawless service throughout our stay. Robert from Reception ordered concert tickets for us, and when we arrived and gave our names, we were escorted to the front row! The waiting staff were attentive and keen to make sure we were happy with everything. We recommend this hotel highly!
