Four Star Krakow hotels

Most popular areas in Krakow for 4-star hotels

Many of Krakow’s 4-star hotels are clustered around the Main Square in Stare Miasto, Krakow’s Old Town. Staying here means you’ll be close to many of the city’s main attractions. Centrally located Stare Dębniki, on the right bank of the Vistula River, also boats plenty of 4-star hotels and offers a laid-back, residential vibe. If you’d like to be close to some of the city’s hippest bars, look for a 4-star hotel in trendy Kazimierz. You’ll also find some good 4-star accommodation options in the Grzegorzki neighborhood, just south of the Old Town.

For a taste of Medieval Krakow, visit Wawel Castle and the adjacent cathedral, on the edge of the Old Town by the Vistula River. Dating from the 14th century, the buildings have been much added to and changed over the last 700 years, and they present a magnificent selection of Romanesque and Renaissance architecture. Take a trip to the Kosciuszko Mound, a hill created in the early 19th-century to honor Polish national hero Tadeusz Kosciuszko. It’s just a couple of miles from the main square, and you can climb to the top for fantastic views across the city. The Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow has an outstanding collection of work by both Polish and international artists. It’s next door to the Schindler Factory, now a museum dedicated to the man who protected so many Jews from the Nazis.
