A new hotel is being built in Kraków. It will be the seventh facility of the AccorInvest/Orbis group in the capital of Malopolska under the Accor brand in the lifestyle segment. The hotel is scheduled to open in Q2 2025.

The new hotel is being built in the centre of Kraków, next to the Mercure Kraków Stare Miasto, on ul. Worcella. It will offer 170 rooms, a restaurant, bar, and recreational area with fitness and spa.

The new hotel in Kraków is another step in the implementation of our growth strategy and strengthening the value of our hotel portfolio in Europe in the midscale and economy segments. It is an investment that will strengthen our position in the hotel industry, especially in the Eastern European region. The new hotel will attract environmentally conscious guests and will be an ideal destination for business travellers and tourists alike.
Dominik Sołtysik, CEO of Orbis and COO of AccorInvest in Eastern Europe

The investment project will meet the requirements set for green buildings and will be implemented according to the guidelines of BREEAM certification at the Excellent level.

The general contractor is the Sarivo company from Kraków. BatiPlus Polska is handling the construction of the hotel in terms of technical control and investor supervision, and the investor's proxy is Aka Studio. The Spanish company Stone Designs is responsible for the interior design.

AccorInvest is a hotel investor, owner and operator with nearly 800 hotels located in 25 countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia. AccorInvest Group is the owner of Orbis, the largest hotel property investment group in Poland and Eastern Europe.
