Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A review based only on a Spa experience. After a previous visit to Hotel Copernicus last year, we decided to return for a Spa day. The hotel is expertly renovated and stunning inside, boasting a modern interior whilst maintaining the charm of the historical building. The lobby is extremely charming. The hotel itself has 29 rooms and is in high demand, and it’s obviously to see why. The location is perfect with the castle just a minutes walk away. The main square is also easily accessible, about 5-8 minutes walk down the Main Street which is bustling with shops, attractions, and museums. Now, about the spa. This is located in the cellar of the hotel and is once again, finished to an extremely high standard. The cellars are accessible via both stairs and an elevator. The spa is not large by any means, and the low vaulted ceilings provide a very cosy and intimate environment. Your first view is a crystal clear-blue pool, which reflects the light across the ceiling and walls creating a mesmerising dance of the light. To the right is a small check-in desk and immediately behind this is a quaint changing area furnished with lockers, a sink area, and shower. The spa is affiliated with L’Occitane and so all the products are branded as such. As expected, these products are top-shelf and smell incredible. In the lockers, bath robes and slippers are provided, and towels are liberally placed around the spa for your convenience. As a male with size 11 feet, I stood no chance squeezing my spade-like feet into the dainty slippers. I asked for a bigger pair and was provided with an identical, one-size-fits-most pair. Needless to say, I was also unable to wear these but I am used to this so bought my own sliders for the occasion. Next, into the relaxation chamber. Two large reclining beds are located here, on the floor. Very comfy and relaxing environment. Many candles (electric imitations) are present and the atmosphere was so calm I lay down and had the most amazing Power Nap. Free water (bottled) is provided. There is also another shower with an assortment of yet more L’Occitane products. A small sauna in the corner was set to 99° Celsius - and certainly felt it. I managed to endure 10 minutes, but would struggle to stay longer due to the heat. The pool itself is relatively small, but the atmosphere is unparalleled. And due to the need to book a treatment to access the spa, was deserted. The pool itself is amazing, and although heated, is at body temperature. The real star of the show was the treatments. My partner and I both booked facial treatments. 60 minutes for approximately £70. Not exactly cheap by Kraków standards, but this was by far the most amazing experience. The smell of lavender and other essential oils was incredible. The masseur was equally brilliant and I left feeling the most relaxed and stress-free I have been in years. If you are looking to pamper yourself - there is simply nothing else available to this level in the city. Highly recommend and we will be looking to return in the future.

We have just spent an amazing 3 days in Krakow. This hotel was outstanding-Our room was amazing such great views. All the staff were friendly, professional and courteous. The food was of a very high standard from breakfast to the 7 course taster evening meal which was incredible!! The bedding was of a high standard and as hotel is away from the main square it was so quiet at night . Having said that the position was perfect to walk into old town to enjoy all that old town has to offer. The management and the team must be congratulated on running such a superb establishment We would highly recommend this hotel it will not disappoint

This is a lovely old hotel with an indoor enclosed courtyard, and amazing Michelin starred restaurant. Room was very comfortable and very nice to have Nespresso machine with free pods every day; only point to note is my bathroom had a bath not a shower and other reviews say the same and suggest you ask for shower if you want one

My wife and I just finished a 7 day stay at the Hotel Copernicus. The hotel is perfectly located in Old City. It is a classy establishment with rooms that are spacious and well decorated. Ours offered a view to Wawel Castle. Bathroom had a gigantic tub and a separate shower. The breakfasts were delicious and served in a lovely dining area by professional staff . We did a food tasting paired with wine that was outstanding. From reception to restaurant to housekeeping all staff were at the top of their game. Hotel Manager Joanna made our stay memorable with her kindness and attention to our stay there. 5 stars in all aspects and a must to stay in when visiting Kraków.

Couldn’t find better location than this hotel. Hotel itself is also very good but I think is time to do some renovation as there is so many items to fix. Pool is amazing but bit cold, breakfast very average. Hotel is bit pricey!

Dear Travellingnurse32, Thank you for your lovely review and your recent stay at the R&CH Copernicus Hotel. Indeed our hotel is perfect spot for a city break. You feel the history in our XIVth century house, it is perfectly located - on Cracow oldest street and it is quiet as for touristic part of the Town. After all day walking you can have a dinner at the Copernicus Restaurant, drink on the roof top terrace in the summer time or have a moment of relaxatgion in Copernicus Spa by L'Occitane :) We would be happy to welcome you back when you are travelling to our Royal city again!
