Elegant old hotel right in the heart of Krakow
Posted Mar 26, 2017
I booked this hotel for its location as my other half has mobility issues so everything was within walking distance. The hotel staff were terrific throughout the stay (3 nights only). They arranged our trip to Auschwitz (at very short notice)through a local company, which I would recommend doing as I don't like being herded on and off a coach with dozens of other people. The driver was terrific, had very good local knowledge and showed us a few sites that were off the beaten track but still interesting. His English was terrific ( a lot better than my Polish). The driver also arranged for us to visit The Schindler Factory museum the following day and Ghetto Heroes Square. All very interesting. The city of Krakow is very beautiful with a vast history both ancient and modern. Even though it's probably used more as the main location for visiting Auschwitz, it has a lot to see on its own merits.
