We just got back from a wonderful short stay in Krakow. We stayed in the Countess Orlowska apartment which is just beautiful and only a five minute walk to the main square. They have furnished the rooms perfectly with antique furniture, fixtures and rugs. The apartment comes equipped with everything you could need, including a complimentary bottle of wine and was absolutely spotlessly clean! The weather topped 33c while we were there and we were very grateful for the air conditioning! The room is also excellent value for money whilst providing a home from home. We visited Auschwitz during our stay and found that we could travel via tourist information which is just around the corner from Slawkowska. They book you on a minibus with 'SeeKrakow' which picks you up from your front door and drops you back. Included in the price is a 3 hour tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau with an English speaking guide all for 99PLN each (about £20). You must also take a trip to Wawel Castle and Cathedral. We can also really recommend the dumplings and fried potatoes at 'Alter Ego' which is just off of the main square in a small courtyard. The staff there were lovely and the food (and beer!) was excellent value. Oh, and to get to and from the Slawkowska apartments take the train. The station is only a short walk away, and the journey to the airport costs 8PLN each and takes 20 minutes. If you are thinking of taking a break to Krakow, I would highly recommend any of the Slawkowska apartments!
