Train or bus from airport

We are arrivingat the airport at 9.15 pm on Monday and wondered if it would be better to catch the train or bus at that time of the night. Also is it easy and safe to walk from the station to the hotel at night. We are staying at Hotel Matejko which does not seem to far away. Thanks

Take a train, 15 minutes ride and you are at The Main Station, then 5 minutes to the hotel.

Kraków is pretty safe. Common sense is enough to be safe.

In case you for some reason miss the train or dont wanna go by bus (the flight is delayed or somethig) you can take a taxi, which is just outside the terminal (MPT is the official taxi company serving the krakow airport; good to know MPT operates in every big polish city, MPT stands for City Taxi Enterprise and as the name suggests, it is owned by the city). The taxi is however quite exepensive, as Krakow airport is outside the city limits (the rate is doubled) and if you travel after 10 pm or during the weekend there is another 50% surcharge.. it may cost 80 PLN

I got the train and stayed at Matejko. I would say it's safe but I would get directions from the hotel first so you know exactly where you are going.

The hotel is nice by the way!
