The three-star Hotel Pod Wawelem inhabits one of the boldest, most modern buildings in our survey of Krakow hotels, located in a central location at the base of Krakow's castle and just beyond the Stare Miasto greenbelt.

After the exterior and cool lobby build-up, the hotel’s 48 rooms are a slight disappointment. Nonetheless, they manage to be more interesting than Krakow's legions of newly renovated mid-range rooms. They are uncluttered, with white walls and smart—if Ikea-esque—furnishings. We liked the original paintings and desk lamps. Silver flat-panel televisions are a nice additional touch, and rooms also feature air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. The bathrooms, though tiny, are well-appointed. Sinks and toilets have a contemporary flair.

The building itself, from its flat roof to its windows that appear to simply wrap around it, extends an enticing invitation to the modernism junkie in a city better known for its medieval and baroque heritage. Inside, the lobby features a massive, illuminated map of Krakow. The restaurant, which inhabits a corner of the hotel's ground floor, is a stylish little place featuring particularly attentive waitstaff and quirky dishware. The highlight, though, is the roof terrace, where guests can enjoy cocktails or a meal with sweeping views of the city.

Breakfast is included, as is free access to the sauna.

About the Hotel Pod Wawelem neighborhood

Stare Miasto (Old Town) is 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, the area is full of tourist sights. These include Rynek Glowny—the Main Market Square and the biggest medieval city square in Europe—St. Andrew's Church and Wawel Castle. Swank cafes and restaurants abound here.
