Krakow is a marvelous place to visit as a tourist, and it has many wonderful sites to see. Of particular note are the very friendly local folks. Most of the younger people speak English, and are helpful if you have questions or are just seeking directions. In the heart of the old Jewish Quarter lies the Rubinstein Hotel - named after the cosmetics founder (Helena Rubinstein) who grew up next door to where the hotel is located. The hotel staff is most pleasant and helpful and in front of the hotel is a large open area with numerous tables - served by the restaurants on either side of the hotel. There are also restaurants and bars across the street from the restaurant. Likewise, across the street from the hotel is an area where you can pick up one of the modified golf carts (for lack of a better description) to carry you all around Krakow. You can usually negotiate a lower price the service. The hotel is about a 25 minute walk from the Castle and a shorter walk to the Old Town Market Square. The rooms at the hotel are quite nice and some have antiquities in the room. The entire hotel was renovated (rebuilt) and the 'before' photo's should not be missed. The room we had was very large and well appointed. However, the phone did not work and could not be fixed while we were there since the wall had to be opened up to fix the phone, Also, if you have a late arrival - be sure to call the hotel a day or so before your arrival and remind the staff that you will be coming in late - just to ensure that your room is not given to someone else. All-in-all a very convenient, enjoyable place to stay. jr
