I feel like this is the first place you should visit in Kraków. It gives you an insight in to the Jewish history and culture in the city. Good preparation before visiting Auschwitz.

I stayed in a similar location to where you will be. It's a leisurely walk (maybe 30 mins max) or a 10 mins taxi ride. Enjoy :)
