Cheap hotels in Stare Miasto & Wawel, Krakow

Stare Miasto forms the heart of Old Krakow. Encircled by a greenbelt park and bookended by Wawel (Castle) Hill at its south and the Florian Gate at its north, Krakow's Old Town is dizzyingly full of sights. At the center of Stare Miasto is Rynek Glowny, or the Main Market Square, the biggest medieval city square in all of Europe. Stare Miasto is so chock full of historically significant buildings that it feels a bit like an open-air museum.

Among the many highlights: St. Andrew's Church, a Romanesque church that dates back to the 11th Century, Rynek Glowny's magnificent 16th-century Cloth Hall, and the Wawel Castle and Cathedral. There are plenty of swank cafes and folksy restaurants to provide a break from the tourist action. Many of Krakow's hotels can also be found in Stare Miasto, in particular north of Rynek Glowny.

Gardenhouse Hostel, Krakow

Address 5 Floriañska St., (Stare Miasto & Wawel)

Hotel Saski, Krakow
