The Grand Hotel is exactly that – a palace built in the 19th century and now one of the city’s finest hotels. Its 56 rooms feature antique furnishings, fine artwork and tapestries, and fantastic high ceilings (from £80; ul Sławkowska 5–7).

Hotel Stary is housed in an 18th-century Old Town residence that exudes opulent charm, with natural fabrics, Italian marble bathroom surfaces, and silk and Oriental carpets throughout (from £180; Szczepańska 5).

Transport
John Paul II International airport, almost seven miles west of Kraków’s centre, is served by easyJet, Jet2 and Ryanair from Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Leeds Bradford, Liverpool, Newcastle and Stansted (from £70). An express train links the airport with the main Kraków Główny station on the outskirts of the Old Town in 20 minutes (singles £3). Bus and taxi details can also be found on the airport website. Most of Kraków’s centre is within a four-square-mile area, which makes walking your best bet.
