Select this boutique hotel in Krakow’s beautiful city centre for a bit of luxury. Upon arrival advised sky bar closed, rendering opportunity for cocktails overlooking main square gone on the Thursday night due to a wedding (not end of the world), but Friday comes bars and restaurants closed for another wedding and ridiculous loud party carries onto past 4am, we moved from second to fourth floor room to escape, walking through wedding disco in dressing gowns at 02:00 (degrading). Upon departure reception maintained a radio silence ignore situation approach, so disappointing. Worst hotel stay in my 46 years, please hotel stary go back to being a boutique hotel and stop trying to make a quick buck on inappropriate village style weddings. Zero star experience.
