A dilapidated old mansion has been brought back to life by architect Adam Pulwicky team, transforming it in the Hotel Stary, opened in June 2006. It has immediately taken its place as one of the top spots in town. Hotel Stary is located in the heart of the old city Krakow. Modernity and comfort have been combined to create an extraordinary atmosphere. Unique furniture design, different kinds of exotic wood, best quality marble, oriental carpets, natural silk have all been used to create an unforgettable interior. Swimming pools, fitness club, sauna and salt cave are located on −1 level in historical cellars of the building and the hotel offers 46 rooms, 4 suites and 3 luxury suites. The architect's team has gone for a contemporary approach, although many rooms also have charming relics from the days when the building was a private residence.
