Hotel Copernicus

ul. Kanonicza 16, Kraków, Małopolska, 31–002, Poland

Hotel Copernicus is a tastefully adapted medieval tenement house on the oldest and, arguably, the most charming street in Kraków. A story goes that Copernicus himself (a graduate of the Kraków University) stayed here once. Whether that's true or not, traces of history can still be seen throughout the hotel in the Renaissance portals, wall paintings, and floor mosaics. Rooms have lots of leather and dark, rich woods—in beamed ceilings as well as in well-polished floors and reproduction antiques. Contemporary lighting, soothing pastel walls, richly colored Persian area rugs, and coordinating earthtone fabrics keep austerity somewhat at bay.

PROS

  • oozes history and charm—inside and out
  • lots of modern amenities

CONS

  • on the pricey side
  • some quirks (like tubs and no showers, or vice versa, in some bathrooms)
