Hotel Location

Hello

Going to Krakow on 25th Nov for 4 nights, just need some advice on what area of Krakow would you recommend to stay if you were going mainly for the nightlife?

Ideally we want to be as close as possible so we don't have far to walk after a night out. We prefer "normal" pubs/bars not too keen on the club scene.

Also budgeted for around £50 a day, would that be enough?

At that time of year, the Old Town is the best place to stay. There's lots of nightlife on ul. Szewska so find a place as close to there as you can.

the jewish quarter sounds like your best bet. Lots of unusual bars to visit. Try and visit the Singer bar - all the tables are made out of old sewing machines, complete with the actual sewing machine on the top!!

The old town is only a 10/15 minutes walk from here.

We found it to be very cheap to eat/drink in Krakow. We had a silver service dinner in La Foutaine (a very nice french/polish restaurant) and only paid about £18 each for two courses with drinks (and the chef gives you a complimentary amouse bouche before your meal).

We were paying the equivalent of about £1.50 for alcoholic drinks in our hotel room mini bar and about the same in the bars in town.

If you like vodka you have to try Żubrówka (pronounced zoo-broov-ka) - do as the locals do and drink it with apple juice - absolutely divine!!

Anywhere in and around the centre would be fine as Krakow is quite accessible via foot so you shouldn't have to much of a problem. What were you looking for a Hostel or Hotel maybe?
