Aparthotel Stare Miasto – Location
Aparthotel Stare Miasto is one of the best located places to stay in Krakow. It is located right in the heart of the old town, one step away from the Main Market Square. All the main attractions can be reached on foot in a few minutes, and the area is full of excellent restaurants and bars.
If you’re traveling around Christmas time, Aparthotel Stare Miasto is a great place to stay, because you are right in the heart of the celebrations. The Krakow Christmas Markets are a 1-minute walk away, as are the street food kiosks, Christmas concerts and the famous nativity scenes. Krakow at this time of year has a truly magical atmosphere!
If you arrive in Krakow with your car it is good to know that the old town is pedestrianized. So, you will need to park it just outside the old town walls. However, the Aparthotel Stare Miasto offers secure private parking at a reasonable price. Parking is about 1 km from the property.

Aparthotel Stare Miasto – Cleanliness and Facilities
One of the reasons Aparthotel Stare Miasto is so popular is its cleanliness. The apartments are spotless, the staff do their best to provide clean towels and linen during your stay, as well as to refill the toiletries. The staff came in everyday and made your beds and changed your towels.
The same goes for kitchen essentials: free coffee, milk and tea are provided and restocked during your stay. This is something we haven’t commonly seen elsewhere, and we really appreciate it!
Aparthotel Stare Miasto – Comfort and Staff
The rooms and suites of Aparthotel Stare Miasto are perfect for couples. The smallest room, the Superior Deluxe Studio, measures 23 square meters, enough to comfortably fit two.

The suites boast a wonderful in-room jacuzzi, which is the cherry on the cake for a stay in Krakow. After a nice day touring the city you can relax in the jacuzzi, enjoying a drink or a glass of good wine and enjoying the soft and warm atmosphere of your suite.
Coming to the staff, we appreciated the 24-hour reception. Arriving in Krakow late in the evening we needed a hotel or apartment with a late reception. Aparthotel Stare Miasto has flexible check-in hours, you can arrive anytime after 3pm, which is great! The reception staff speak good English and Polish, of course. This made the experience smooth. The service wasn’t 5-star hotel, but it was pretty good. On the other hand, even if the Aparthotel Stare Miasto is not a 5-star hotel, quality service is expected given the rates.
