Travelled to Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Firstly we had a guided tour through Auschwitz 1, which was the first camp. This camp had brick buildings and is largely intact. It contained one gas chamber. The bus then took us to Auschwitz-Birkenau, about 10 minutes away. This ...
... including Wawel Castle and Cathedral. The 14th century castle overlooks the Vistula River and was the Royal residence until 1596, but even after the capital was moved to Warsaw, King's were still crowned and buried here. We somehow managed to arrive at the castle on the one morning of the week when admission was free, so went through the treasury, armoury and museum, plus the very ornate cathedral. The centre of ...
... people may do, I think of Auschwitz II with the wooden buildings. We walked in between big brick buildings. I could only imagine what it would have been in there. I could picture scary German Nazis with big dogs.
We then entered several blocks that had been set up as museums with photographs, original documents and belongings of the prisoners. The first building we went into was block 4. It showed the Exterminations. As we walked in the door there was a ...
Even though it was a struggle getting up with three hours sleep, Emile, Stephanie, Eline (three Belgian girls I met at the hostel) walked over to the bus station, and began the 2 hour bus ride over to Auschwitz on our own accord. When we got there, we realized that between 10am and 3pm, you're not allowed to enter without a guide. Luckily there was a tour coming up within the next 15 minutes.
The first part of the tour lasted about 2 ...
... in the room (because of course it wasn't on already so, again, it was freezing) and stole the space heater from the room next door. We stayed inside for an hour or so and then headed out to see some sites. It was already dark though (it got dark in Poland around 3pm) but the city was pretty with all the lights.
We first walked over to the castle and looked around. It was another castle from the Middle Ages and it was too bad because the inside was already closed. ...

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.
