Hotel Stary Kraków- great hotel wonderful service
We stayed at Hotel Stary over the weekend and had called them after booking on Hotels.com - to ask for specific rooms. Anna, the evening receptionist was only too happy to help and also booked tickets for a jazz concert, spa treatments and gave us a lot of very useful information. We had taken my elderly father for the trip and they made sure that he was in a room next to us, plus when we arrived and he was having trouble walking, I asked if they knew where We could hire a wheelchair. Anna phoned around to their other hotels and had a wheelchair delivered the following morning - they wouldn’t take any money and said it was part of the service!! Because we were existing clients they gave us a free late checkout too. The amazing service, friendly helpful staff and great location made our stay so good. A HUGE thank you to all of the staff - we look forward to staying with you again.
