Krakow Luxury Hotels
Best areas in Krakow for luxury hotelsOne of the best places to look for luxury hotels in Krakow is in the city center’s Old Town, or Stare Miasto, which is home to the magnificent, 13th-century Main Square. Krakow’s center is a great place to stay as many of the most popular attractions are there, or nearby. If you prefer to be away from the bustle, opt for a boutique hotel in the leafy Salwator district, a 20-minute walk away. To be surrounded by trendy restaurants and hip, cool bars, Kazimierz offers both in abundance as well as exclusive hotels.
Top luxury hotels in KrakowOnly a 10-minute walk from the Main Square, you’ll find the exclusive PURO Krakow. The hotel’s exquisite restaurant, Dystryt One, serves a contemporary Mediterranean menu. The Radisson Blu Hotel has a great location in Krakow’s Old Town, just a 5-minute walk from Main Square. Amenities include a beauty studio, a fitness center, and 2 restaurants. Meanwhile, the elegant Holiday Inn Krakow City Centre occupies a handsome 19th-century nobleman’s palace with modern, glass-fronted extensions, and its 237 guestrooms come with uber stylish furnishings.
Where to find the best fine dining in KrakowMany of Krakow’s fine dining restaurants are to be found in the Old Town, where there’s a good selection of upmarket restaurants serving modern takes on traditional Polish cuisine – look out for dishes like bigos, a hearty but subtle stew made with pork, venison, or wild duck and freshly picked forest mushrooms in season. You can also find restaurants serving well-prepared dishes from the international scene, with eateries offering Asian Fusion, Japanese, and Indian dishes. Kazimierz is another fine dining spot, with its stylish restaurants offering contemporary classics.
The most unique things to do in KrakowWhile you’re in Krakow, you should take the opportunity to visit Wawel Castle and the adjacent cathedral. These were built, added to, and altered from the 14th century onwards, and they are one of the finest examples of Renaissance, Gothic, and Romanesque architecture to be found anywhere in Europe. See it as part of a private guided tour to really appreciate its historic grandeur. For a different view of the city, book a private helicopter tour and skirt over the sights and the snaking Vistula River below in style. Once you’ve explored the city by air, visit the Planty, an idyllic park that encircles the Old Town. Built on the foundations of the old city’s fortified walls, the park is a great place to relax with a picnic and a chilled bottle of champagne and watch the sunset.
Best ways to get around KrakowTaxis are easy to find in the center of the city and you can hail them in the street or find them at one of the taxi ranks. Alternatively, your hotel will be able to arrange one for you. If you’ve got your smartphone with you, you’ll be able to use the Uber service, which operates in Krakow. If you want to travel in style and complete comfort, then you can hire a limousine with driver for either a day or the whole duration of your break.
