Having stayed in the Andel's Design Hotel in Prague last year for New Years Eve we decided to book the Andel's in Krakow (aided by the great reviews).
The hotel is ultra modern and really clean. The bathroom is great with soft blue lighting (as well as the standard lighting). Beware of the glass panel between the toilet & the shower!
The staff were very friendly and the buffet breakfast is fantastic.
Krakow is a great place for a short break, the hotel is only a 5 minute walk from the old town (take the subway under the road, don't try to cross the main roads like we did the first day!). The market square is beautiful with amazing buildings and so much character. We took one of the golf buggy tours which was great fun and a reasonable price at about £20, the driver chatted to us as well as the recorded info, and would stop wherever you wanted for photos - it is a private tour with just your party, and the cost is per buggy, not per person. We even got cosy blankets to put over our knees as it was VERY cold! We used Royal Tours - the red one.
The food in Krakow is great and the people are all very friendly, We tried to learn a couple of words of Polish which went down very well. If you want a cafe for a coffee or lunch (or just to get out of the cold) look down all the little alleyways off the main roads as the best places are tucked away out of sight. Everything is very cheap. We spent about £120 (on top of flight & hotel) for 2 days & 2 nights, not scrimping on anything and eating in great restaurants - highly recommend Cherubino, Pod Aniolami & Bambus cafe. Make sure you try the hot spiced wine which is just like mulled wine...
One thing we did notice on the negative side is that EVERYONE smokes in all the bars and restaurants, which is quite alien to us nowadays being a smoke-free nation!
All in all a fab place, highly recommended for a long weekend.
