Returned 15th May from Krakow. Had the most amazing time as the people, place, hotel & food were great.Spent 8 nights at Benefis hotel. The reception girls were the best we have encountered & my husband & i travel extensively. They were so friendly, helpful & nothing we asked for was too much trouble. The hotel is slightly difficult to find at first but people go out of their way to help you. We felt very safe even though the walk from the centre took about 15 mins. Try & avoid the underpass at night. Our hotel room was on the 4th floor. Wouldnt recommend it as the skylight window keeps you awake from 5 am .They do not have a night blind shutter. They promised to rectify it. The view of the castle from that room isnt amazing. The trams can be got from behind the hotel & buses from the front which is so convenient. Breakfast was excellent. Will definitely go back there. Must visit salt mines, Aushtwitz & Zakopane (take cable car to the top not funicular). Also the free walking tours at 11am of the city & 3pm of the Jewish quarter was worth it. Ask the reception for names of places to dine. They were all well recommended. Shop around for money changers as they vary so much.Dont believe the advertised rates.Some are the spread not the actual rate.The best ones were before you reached the centre.Its a wonderful place for young people. Full of life on friday & Saturday.Dont waste money on tours. Go on your own to salt mines & Aushtwitz if you have time & take tours from there but get bus times correct. Reception will give you all details.
