Airport to hotel

Am traveling to krakow in November and speak no polish.

Staying at hotel maksymilian, ul karmelicka 36, krakow 31-128.

How easy is it to get from airport using public transport ? Any ideas how much taxi would be or is it worth booking a prearranged transport. On returning have to be airport quite early not sure what time public transport starts

Right now from my knowledge the cheapest is to call for taxi company Icar 0048 12 653 55 55 the transport should cost between 35-40 zlotys you can check the price as you call them. I have no experience with taxis staying outside the airport but from what other travelers say they cost 60-80 zlotys, more in the night and on Sundays.

You can also use public bus or train from the airport to railway station and then one of trams 4,14,20,76 and leave at Batorego stop

Best regards

bus 292 and bus 208 both run from the airport to the city centre

they both stop at Plac Invalidow which is at the end of Karmelicka, where karmelicka becomes krolewska

its then a short walk, or 1 stop on any tram heading into town, stop "batorego"

hi If y ou get the bus go right out of airport about 80mts just round the bend in road.You must have coins to buy a ticket from the machine on the bus its 4zl.to the main bus station in Krakow takes about 40mins in the evening.The machine has an English botton its very simple to use.press the hour ticket @4zl put in your coins ticket drops down,stamp the ticket in the yellow valllidator sitdown and enjoy your trip to town? Its same for the trams you can also buy tickets from news stands.Have a great time Chris.

When u leave the airport ,on the right side u have a bus stop,take bus 208 or 292 from there to the city center,u can buy ticket inside the bus,they have tickets machine(in English language too)..they stop somewhere around your street( bbus journey to city center takes about 35 mins)but even if you get off somewhere in the city and just take a taxi for a short ride to the hotel,it will cost u in total few pounds.:)enjoy your trip,and don't worry about you not speaking Polish,people there do speak English,some worse than the others but u will be fine:)and don't forget to wrap up well as Poland in November is much colder than UK.:)
