    Went about a month ago we stayed in a holiday inn express it was on the outskirts about
    30' walk though but a hotel bus was available to and from town centre at 1 euro.
    V nice hotel got it about 45euros per room inc breakfast !

    We pre-booked a private airport transfer for 130 zloty (about £30 then ) in total - airport was about 20' to the hotel !

    BTW Krakow is a really nice place - well recommended

    cheers guys :thumbsup:
    checked tripadvisor already but was looking for personal experiences and advice on the place from anyone on here thats cheap and near centre and any tips

    2007, we stayed at:
    hotel-classic.pl/eng/
    It was absolutely fine and a really great location; all within a short walking distance as it was inside the Planty. I don't know what it costs now but we generally budget modestly!!

    You will enjoy the city tremendously if you are in the old centre.
    I can't remember how far the airport was - nothing excessive. We booked a shuttle.
    It was 60 polish zloty each way booked with krakow shuttle (www. krakowshuttle.com - but I haven't checked it's still operating).

    I wouldn't bother booking a taxi from the airport-its v easy, out of the airport and less than 5 mins walk to the train station, (there is a shuttle bus if needed) trains run every 20 minutesish right to the centre of Krakow.Fares can be bought on the train or use the ticket machine.About 6-8 zlotty each.If you use a tram in Krakow remember you have to pay for your luggage!
    Have a great trip.
    We stayed in a hotel just outside Krakow and used the trams-very cheap, you can also buy 24/48 and weekday tickets.

    Just another thought-when you order your currency ask for the notes in as low a denomination as possible-some shops can be wary of 50 zlotty notes and smaller shops also frown on 20's. If any of your party is a student take your card with you as lots of places offer student discount.

    I just booked at kadetus place its very cheap but looks very nice at the same time! :thumbsup:

    Also we found that exchange office in the main market offered an excellent rate. Don't know if that still holds.
