The five-star W St. Petersburg Hotel has changed its brand and management and since February 14 has been operating under the name SO Sofitel St. Petersburg. The SO Sofitel collection is part of AccorHotels, a world leader in travel, modern lifestyle and digital technologies. The first SO Sofitel in Russia is located in the heart of the northern capital, near St. Isaac’s Square. It has 137 rooms and suites, restaurants, bars and a spa and wellness centre. We recommend the hotel for leisure and business travellers looking for luxury and trendy accommodation in the heart of the city.

Krakow, the former royal city of Poland, remains one of the most popular destinations in Europe and the demand for accommodation surpasses supply for most of the year. New hotels are badly needed. The new four-star Hotel Puro will open at the start of July in the very centre of Krakow, with 228 guest rooms, four conference rooms, a restaurant and a bar, coffee shop and bakery. The new property is located just opposite the main station with convenient access to the airport and is a short walk from Europe’s biggest market square.
