“For the first time in my life I found a hand-written letter in my room upon my arrival in the Grand Hotel in Krakow, Poland. And not a scribly piece of paper. No, beautiful quality paper.”
Royal; that is how the hotel makes you feel. The friendly people at the reception know you by name when you arrive and make sure that you have everything you need.
My room was the fireplace suite. Everything in this room is royal. The sumptuously gilded period panelling, ornaments adorning the walls, the cornices, the meticulously restored marble fireplace and the unique frontons and medallions containing the portraits of the Czartoryski Dukes. I think these were the oldest chairs I have ever sat on.
This suite is 90m2 and comes with a butler. The butler brings your breakfast in your room in the morning and is available for whatever questions you have. Having a butler to my disposal was the first time in my life and a truly unique experience.
Sometimes it is good to be in a different place to understand the craziness in your own life. This is no standard boho place with a lot of greens to make you feel relaxt or a yoga place to see your innerself. This place makes you look back at your life in a completely different way. I don’t think I ever felt more like a royalty back in the old times then when I stayed at the Grand Hotel in Krakow. It changes your perspectives!
