I attended a conference here in April 2014. The hotel is comfortable enough, and our room was large, with a good seating area and comfortable chairs. The décor is a bit fin de siècle, which is charming, but the lack of a lift would make life difficult if you are not so mobile and on an upper floor. We were on the second.
Location is excellent, with everything a short walk away. The large shopping mall is opposite, and shops are a mixture of international names as well as local ones. Avoid MacDonald's, look for local ice cream!
The market square is the social centre of Krakow, and evening entertainment is superb, with live bands in cellar bars. Rock and roll, jazz, classical, you name it. And the horse drawn carriage rides are most agreeable in the sunshine. The market building itself has an excellent array of artisan outlets, and the fur and leather wear is particularly good value.
Prices are generally very competitive - my wife bought several jumpers and other things, and the sale prices were silly. Low that is.
The hotels and bars on the square are upmarket and friendly. Nice food, not expensive, and rather cosmopolitan.
There are trips advertised everywhere and our social secretary organised trips to the salt mines in Wielizska and the extermination camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau. The latter is a definite bucket job, or was for me.
