Hotel and restaurant in town. On the shores of the Baltic Sea, the port city of Gdynia is in full resurgence. Within one of its magnificent parks, Quadrille sits in a small 18th-century palace to which the Górski family has brought new life. They imagined a decor that would surpass the ordinary, inspired by the world of Alice in Wonderland. The tunnel that connects the two sections of the hotel invites guests to pass from one side of the mirror to the other, where the rooms, each bearing the name of a famous writer and his novel, are found. Their choice for originality has not diminished the quality of the service, with the magic of the atmosphere evident in every detail. The restaurant, carried by the enthusiasm of its young chef, invites you to follow the white rabbit into the dunes of the Pomeranian Voivodeship. ... Learn moreless

Hotel and restaurant in town. Krakow was once the capital of Poland and it still has many impressive monuments from this period, such as the Royal Castle overlooking the Wawel Hill, where the country’s monarchs lived. Copernicus Hotel is located on Kanonicza, the city’s oldest street. For centuries, this building was a part of the cathedral chapel and hosted the intellectual and financial elite of Krakow. It owes its name to the famous Polish astronomer Nicolas Copernicus, who was one of the guests of the house. He, too, must have admired the precious polychrome paintings and inscriptions dating from the 1500s and, in the evening, the flaming sunsets that seem to set the city alight. After visiting the city, relax at the Copernicus Spa by L’Occitane with a range of custom treatments. ... Learn moreless
