The hotel was fantastic! The staff couldn't have been more gracious and helpful and they did everything to ensure we had a nice stay. The rooms were beautiful and the hotel centrally located. It was actually really surprising how nice the hotel was as I didn't have high expectations of most hotels in Poland. They had a wonderful breakfast buffet as well.

The Radisson SAS in Krakow was yet another wonderful surprise in hotels! We were really tired by the time we arrived from Warsaw by train and was pleasantly surprised to find that our room at the Radisson was so comfy and warm! It's a very modern hotel with nice touches, including the soap products in the bathroom (picture attached). Also, once again, the breakfast buffet was marvelous! You'll love it there and the location is perfect! I can't wait to go back!

While in Krakow, we set out one morning to find the old Schindler Factory that was supposedly still standing. After a few cab rides and quite a hike, we ended up finding it. It stood just exactly in the same spot as history describes and in fact, doesn't look much different. Of course, it's the exact building that was used during the filming of "Schindler's List". We gave the Polish guard inside a few dollars to let us go in. He walked us around and in very broken English described each of the rooms. We took pictures which show some of the exact spots used in the film. Very eery place but fascinating to see.
