... with his voicemail. The lip starts to quiver; the tears start to well on my eyelashes… we’re going to spend our wedding anniversary holiday at Krakow airport. Mr Fletche tells me to pull myself together. Daniel has received our twenty-five missed calls and is on his way to collect us now… Yay for Daniel! He rocks up ten minutes later and herds us into the car, mumbling about "crazy times" at the airport. Grateful ...

Got into Krakow main station, and it was an easy walk to my hostel. First impression: absolutely GORGEOUS city. It feels as if the old heritage and historical feel of Krakow has managed to stay intact more so than Warsaw. I'm staying pretty much right in the center of the Old ...

Another building which is not accessible was known as the "hospital" block. In reality this block was where SS doctors including Dr Mengele carried ...

When we finished we made our way to the bus stop and then back at the hostel we tried to watch movies but couldn't get anything to work so we just gave up and went to bed because we really didn't have any energy left in ...
... over the world, including Germans, and even former members of the Nazi party. I think it's important to realize that many soldiers in the Nazi party were just sadistic psycho-paths, while others were just "following orders" and still others never did kill anyone. And yet, almost all of them knew how horrific this was, and those that didn't kill were able to return to their families "as men, instead of murderers" as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ascot Hotel Krakow
Stayed in Ascot Hotel for 1 night only. Our room had no aircon, however the hotel staff provided us with a fan, at least this helped. Wouldn't recomment staying there for longer periods. Quick walk from main train station and city center, which is very nice. Overall, enjoyable.
Me alojé solo una noche en el hotel Ascot. Nuestra habitación no tenía aire acondicionado, aunque el personal del hotel nos dio un ventilador que, por lo menos, ayudó un poco a aliviar el calor. No lo recomendaría para estancias más prolongadas. Está a un paseo de la principal estación de tren y del centro, cosa que está muy bien. En resumen, es agradable.
Wir verbrachten nur eine Nacht im Ascot Hotel. Unser Zimmer hatte keine Klimaanlage, die Angestellten stellten uns allerdings einen Ventilator zur Verfügung, das hat zumindest Abhilfe geschaffen. Ich würde von einem längeren Aufenthalt hier abraten. Man kann den Hauptbahnhof und das Stadtzentrum schnell zu Fuß erreichen, das ist sehr schön. Im Großen und Ganzen gut.
New hotel with very stylish decor and very pleasant and helpful staff. Great location about 5 mins walk from both the main railway station and the market square. Excellent buffet breakfast. Expect some noise from ambulances nearby and also the railway behind but it was not as noisy as some other cities. Also check that your room is air-conditioned - not all are and Krakow can be really hot in summer.
This hotel is new so the interiors were of a high standard for a 3 star hotel.....however.....the noise (both street level and of the neighbouring rooms) is terrible and many of the rooms don;t have aircon. This literally made the room like a sauna so we were unable to sleep for 2 nights and the staff were unable to help us nor refund our money so we could stay in another hotel
El hotel es excelente, a excepción del ruido de las sirenas de las ambulancias y de la policía que había en la zona. Es céntrico, pero a la vez está lo suficientemente lejos del centro de la ciudad (a unos cinco minutos a pie) y de la estación de tren. El personal es amable y muy agradable. Volvería a reservar habitación aquí. Las excursiones se pueden reservar en el hotel, aunque este servicio no se anuncie.
This hotel was excellent apart from the noise of the police and ambulances in the area. It is central yet far enough from the city center (approx 5mins walk) and the train station. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I would book there again. Tours can be booked in the hotel although it is not advertised.
Questo hotel è eccellente a parte il rumore della polizia e delle ambulanze nella zona. È centrale ma abbastanza lontano dal centro città (circa 5 minuti a piedi) e dalla stazione dei treni. Il personale era cordiale e molto disponibile. Prenoterei ancora qui. Le visite possono essere prenotate in hotel anche se non è indicato da nessuna parte.
