Once on the bus we make another wrong move and get out too early.
Anyway to cut a long story short we eventually found a taxi and got to our accommodation. It was in the opposite direction from here we had gone and was a 20 minute walk from the bus stop.
Ironically if we'd stayed on the bus back into town we would have ended up within 100 metres of where we stayed.
Not a good start for Krakow.
At about 4pm, I had dropped everything off at my hostel, and I was ready to get back out into the city. I wanted to see the Schindler's Factory Museum, which is a bit outside the city center and further than I wanted to walk. I asked at the front desk of my hostel how best to get there, and I was told to take one of three trams: 3, 9, or 25. I later found out the hard way that 2 of these were incorrect.
I had an easy enough time finding the tram, and I ...
... capital of the world without doubt. Sim didn't put up much of a fight and handed the steering wheel (so to speak) and wallet to me..... ooooh goody. Next up we hit Kaunas, the 2nd biggest city in the country. It was nice but a bit industrial for our liking and really we just wanted to get to Vilnius where it all truly happens, oh and their happened to be basketball games on each night we were there. Wow, that was a coincidence wasn't it :-). So while ...
... huge - so we were falling asleep on the bus on the way back. Sleeping on public transport is a knack I still have to learn. We met chatted to 3 NZ girls on the bus on the way back and we might meet up with them tomorrow. Tonight we had a traditional polish dinner of pork dumplings and potato pancakes ( which turned out to be sweet) in near the main square. The place was all decorated with polish folk bits and pieces - tea pots, plates, material , lanterns, yokes etc. It was ...
Our time in Poland leaves me with a mixture of feelings, as I am sure it does for many other travelers. We arrived in Krakow at 7am and as we couldn't check in to our hostel at that time we decided to make the most of our early rising and jump on the 8.15 bus tour of Auschwitz. There are not many words that can fully describe the sober and chilling feeling you get walking around these Nazi death camps. The sheer scale and horror of Auschwitz and its fellow extermination camp ...

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.
