Hospitality company Hilton has opened a new 117-room hotel in the heart of Krakow’s Old Town in Poland.

The opening marks the debut of the brand’s Curio Collection by Hilton in the country.

The new property, Hotel Saski Krakow, Curio Collection by Hilton, is located at Sławkowska Street 3. The design of the hotel is inspired by musical and cultural traditions of the destination.

In partnership with Krakow-born photographer Ryszard Horowitz, the hotel has decorated the corridors and rooms with portraits of musicians and composers such as Louis Armstrong, Krzysztof Penderecki and others.

Hotel Saski Krakow, Curio Collection by Hilton, features a bar and restaurant as well as other facilities such as swimming pool, spa, fitness centre and a business centre.

Canopy by Hilton and Curio and Tapestry Collections by Hilton global brand head Jenna Hackett said: “Marking the debut of Curio Collection by Hilton in Poland, Hotel Saski Krakow is a stunning addition to our portfolio of over 120 unique hotels and resorts around the world, handpicked for its distinct character.

“The hotel will open its doors with a rich 200-year history, offering guests an authentic insight into Krakow’s cultural past while providing modern comforts of a boutique hotel. Hotel Saski Krakow joins a growing number of fantastic Curio Collection properties in Europe, including Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort and The Emerald House Lisbon, which opened earlier this year.”

The hotel is located within walking distance of Krakow’s major attractions including museums and Wawel Royal Castle, a historically and culturally significant site in Poland.

It will bolster Hilton’s presence in Krakow where it has five trading hotels including DoubleTree by Hilton Krakow Hotel & Convention Center, Hampton by Hilton Krakow, Hampton by Hilton Krakow Airport, Hilton Garden Inn Krakow and Hilton Garden Inn Krakow Airport.
