Wyndham Grand Krakow Old Town Opens as Brand’s First Hotel in Poland

LONDON—Wyndham Hotels & Resorts announced the opening of the 60-room Wyndham Grand Krakow Old Town, the first Wyndham Grand in Poland. The hotel will be operated by Dobry Hotel Group and is housed in a townhouse right in Krakow Old Town; close to landmarks like the Cloth Hall, Market Square, St. Mary’s Basilica; and near other popular attractions.

Wyndham Grand is a brand of upper-upscale hotels that are approachable by design. The opening of Wyndham Grand Krakow Old Town adds another destination to the brand’s portfolio, including Manama, Istanbul, Athens, and others—and in Poland, adds Wyndham’s eighth hotel across cities including Warsaw, Lodz, Wroclaw, and Krakow.

Dimitris Manikis, president Europe, Middle East, Eurasia, and Africa, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, said, “Our distinctive Wyndham Grand brand represents best-in-class hospitality, and the opening of Wyndham Grand Krakow Old Town is a welcomed addition to our presence in Poland, while also marking an important step in our expansion plans for the country. Dobry Hotel Group is one of the top hospitality operators in the country who shares our vision for growth, making them the ideal partner to bring the Wyndham Grand brand to Poland.”

Daniel Łukaszewicz, managing director of Dobry Hotel Group, commented, “We are thrilled to open the first Wyndham Grand in Poland with the support of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchisor. Situated in the former royal capital, guests staying at the Wyndham Grand Krakow Old Town can enjoy the spectacular Renaissance architecture and medieval city center. We look forward to welcoming business and leisure travelers from around the world for unforgettable stays and experiences.”

Located near Krakow Airport and Krakow Main Station, Wyndham Grand Krakow Old Town offers guests a juxtaposition between a historic culture and a modern experience with contemporary amenities. Guests can use the hotel’s wellness zone, which has a heated indoor pool, a fitness center, and a spa with a sauna, hot tub, and salt cave. Guests can also dine at two on-site restaurants serving Italian and international cuisine, and for those staying for business, the hotel also has an executive center and two meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 150 guests.
