... so we would have to take a tram and then the train. We were a bit worried that might make us late to the bus but the public transport system seems to be reliable and fairly cheap once you figure it out. On the train we met an English guy who teased us about coming from the colonies but had the good sense to rank us above Aus :) From there we got on our Polski Bus and drove 5hrs to Krakow. We managed to get the front seats so we had a fantastic view of the countryside. ...
... as they are told and work for next to nothing. To stop the education, they organised a meeting with all the professors of the University, they said it was to discuss what and how they would take things forward.

... to 1.5 million people killed at Auschwitz so the grounds had a very eerie feel to them. Below are some of the main things we learnt on our tour:
- People were told that they were being re-settled when they were moved to the camps so they took their best possessions with them, e.g. pots, pans etc.
- 7 tonnes of hair and 80,000 shoes were found at Auschwitz after the Holocaust was over. The hair, shoes, pots and pans along with suitcases used by victims, were ...

Although not Jewish, I joined several Jewish members of the tour who wanted to say a prayer for the dead. They needed 10 people and asked me to join. They had the prayer printed in both Yiddish and English. They first recited it in Yiddish, then we all said it in English. The circle grew quickly as we ...

This weekend in the annual Dragon Festival, so there was a carnival set up near the castle. I had classic Polish fair food for lunch before checking out a few more sites in Old Town and going inside the churches I had passed on the tour before. Then that evening, I went back to into town to see the Dragon Show on the river. There were a series on floats with giant inflatable creatures, with music, laser show, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Regent Hotel Krakow
Excellent service at the Regent.
We booked this hotel from the reviews from trip advisor and were not disappointed. It is in a central location, in the jewish quarter, only 15 minutes walk to the market square. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant several times during our stay, even though there were plenty of other restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We did not need public transport as we were close to everything. Hotel staff booked trips to Auschwitz and the Salt mines for us. If we ever returned to Krakow, we would definately stay at the Regent again.
A great little place
I followed pervious reviewers recommendations on this one and was not disappointed...this is great little place.
It's a little far from the Wawel and old town but certainly a walkable distance. The room was clean and comfortable. The front desk were helpful and breakfast was generous and yummy.
A couple of nice extras were the bottled water (both in our room and in the lobby) and the night guard who made sure we didn't have drunken revelers in the hallways at all hours (plenty of those out on the street).
Husband & I went to Krakow for 4 nights in May 2005.
We have just returned from a visit to Krakow, and chose to stay at the Regent after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor.
I have to agree with everything that has been said, the hotel staff are very helpful and speak excellent English. The hotel is spotlessly clean, and the rooms although simple are very well appointed, with all the essentials for your visit.
The hotel is about a 10 walk from the old town and is also very close to the bus and tram routes. The Kazimeirz district has its own restaurants and bars, I would particularly recommend Alchemy for an interesting night out.
A great small hotel
A very nice 3*** hotel which I stayed in for 3 nights, I paid 55 EUR per night for a single room which included a buffet breakfast and also an excursion. Which was good value considering that the same excursion to Auschwitz was 30 EUR.
The hotel staff are extremely friendly and the hotel is quite well located. The room was very clean and tidy, but it lacked pay tv and a minibar in the room.
Well worth staying here, the downside is that if you come from the airport you have to pay a 65 PLN charge one way for a taxi which the hotel is more than happy to organise. This was quite a considerable amount for a relatively short journey.
I would definately return, a wonderful hotel ---- in a beautiful and fascinating city.
Stayed in this hotel from the 22nd to 24th of March 2005. Booked via travelpoland and paid £16 each for bed and breakfast. Hotel was superb with very good staff. If arriving from the central railway station cost of a taxi to the hotel is approx £2.50p. The area around the hotel is currently under development and there is an excellent cafe just past the internet cafe to the left of the hotel. Three course meal approx £5 including a pint of lager.
If staying in Krakow i would recommend this hotel- great location
Super little hotel tucked down a backstreet in the Kazimierz District, South of the city centre. Most main attractions can be reached on foot within 15-20 mins. The hotel is clean, well-decorated and gives the impression of being well cared for. Staff are very helpful, and most speak at least a little English. Reception staff all speak good English. I didn't use the restaurant except at breakfast, but this is an good cold buffet, with a decent, typically "Continental" choice. Rooms are superb; good size, very clean, well presented, with good furnishings. Some of the rooms only have showers, but I guess you can specify a bath if you wish to. There's a couple of UK TV channels, enough to keep you in touch with the world, and the hotel is near an abundance of excellent bars and restaurants. I will certainly go back to this friendly, unpretentious establishment, which offers exceptional value for money.
Lovely Hotel in Great Location
We stayed here at the end of Aug 2004, on a combined trip with Warsaw (got the train from Warsaw to Krakow - 2.5 hours).
The hotel is located inthe Jewish Quarter about 20 minutes walk from the main Market Square of Krakow. The area has it's own square of bars, one block north-east from the hotel. It is away from the crowds of the Old Town, but is within easy walking of the main square, the train station and tour collection points.
The hotel was of a better standard than we expected for a 3*; the staff were excellent and the rooms small but very clean. We paid 30GBP bed and breakfast for the 2 of us (not each) - an absolute bargain for a lovely hotel with a superb buffet breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
We took a short city break to Krakow in July and we stayed at the Regent Hotel, mainly because it was quite cheap and fairly central (it's about a 10 minute walk to the very centre of the town). The hotel itself is a lovely old building (the restaurant is in the basement, which stays beautifully cool), with a little courtyard in the middle which is cool even on the hottest days. Our room (a 3 person room) was really big, and the bathroom was HUGE! But the best thing about this hotel is that the staff are really friendly, and can understand English. They really will go out of their way to help you (one day we wanted to take a trip up to Warsaw, and the lady on reception found out all about the train times for us). This is a great place to stay, and I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to stay in Krakow.
We stayed at the Hotel Regent in september 2003. It was a great hotel.
The staff very accomodating and nothing was too much trouble. Near the Jewish Quarter its about a 15min walk to the town square. The hotel was very clean and bright and we were the only ones there during the weekend. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
