This is THE place to stay in this magnificent city. Not only is this the only 5 star hotel in Rynek Glowny but the windows open onto the most vibrant, beautiful square in all of Europe. The building is over 200 years old and you do feel like you are staying in the private palace of royalty. The staff is completely professional and friendly. We arrived by overnight train at 7AM and didn't expect that our room would be ready but were hoping to drop off our bags. Not only did they accommodate us at that early hour but upgraded us to a suite as well. Our room was huge and beautifully appointed. The thrill of walking out the front door and being in the middle of EVERYTHING cannot be overstated. They only negative was the breakfast buffet. If only you could eat the lush fabrics and stunning decor. Alas you cannot. The same few tired choices appeared every day. They put out only a few pieces of anything at one time and I found myself asking frequently if they could replenish those items. But the worst of it was the gorgeous entry foyer. There were cakes and pastries in glass jars and on tiered trays. Smack in the middle was what looked like some kind of apple cake. I tried to cut into it on the first day but found it very dry and crumbly. The next day when I attempted to try the cake I found to my horror it was the same cake from the day before with my poor attempt at cutting into it. That cake and those pastries, while real food, remained for the entire 5 days of our stay. When I inquired about it I was told, "Oh no one eats those. Just for decoration". I wish I has known that before I ate one!
Aside from that, this hotel is the best! Joanna at the front desk is to be commended for her helpfulness and ever present smile.
