Krakow is a great place to visit, clean, friendly, safe and cheap. This hotel lies on the river bank offering a lovely view of Warwel castle. Don't be put off by the surrounding area, its totally safe. Small friendly hotel. Clean rooms, clean hotel. Good nights sleep, no noise. Restuarant/Breakfast room takes up all of 1st floor. Must be best continental breaksfast in Poland, big selection and also scrambled eggs if required, on until 11.00am!. Because we were leaving at 7.00am on our last day, staff even packed us a box for breakfast! Shower rooms are 4 star quality. Second floor is being refurbished (Feb 2013) but couldnt see the reason why as all the hotel looks very fresh and clean. Twenty minute walk to the main square but restaurants can be found 10-15 mins away. Local polish diner across the bridge on corenr of main junction (Flisack Bar) where all main courses are under £1 but menu on wall is only in Polish, plastic cutlery but if you want to try local then this is the place!!. There is a free walking tour from the main square at 09.30am for main sites and 14.00 for the Jewish area, but dont tip less than a £5 a person as it's not really fair, this is the guides livelyhood.Its the best way to see all the sites. Auschwitz is a must, although can be hard for some people (mentally, not physically). Trips to Auschwitx are 130ZLT, just book it from your hotel as all the tour shops in town are all same price. Scindlers factory, now a museum, is good for 2nd world war information and worthwhile. Balloon ride near the hotel, you will be able to see it, goes up to about 150 meters for views, is tied to ground so no worries! Theres a fantastic chocolate shop which sells drinks to die for, off one of the turnings from the main square. Main building in the middle of the market square is full of souvenir booths and you can look without being hassled. Can't rate this hotel and Krawow highly enough. Three full days required.
