The Hilton is a terrific hotel, very modern with great comfort and facilities. Myself and my wife stayed here over Easter 2012 for our visit to Krakow. I cannot fault the Hotel at all. The value for money is exceptional.
Our only slight issue with the Hotel is its situation. It is located on the opposite side of the river from the old town, meaning at least a 20 minute walk into town. The walk isn't too bad however abd shouldn't deter from this hotel. We did talk a taxi on one occasion which cost 14 Zloty, approximately £3.
Krakow itself is good with the market square a main attraction. The cloth hall is lovely for browsing although we were very disappointed to find it closed along with much of Krakow on Easter Sunday.
We visited Auschwitz using Escape 2 Poland trip organiser. Auschwitz is a truely horrifying place but it really must be visited.
Escape 2 Poland organised a brilliant trip. We were collected from the hotel in a mini van and driven to Auschwitz. A tour guide who was exceptional was provided and told the story of the Auschwitz. A 5 minute journey to Birkenau and the guide picked up the story of that extermination camp. We were then returned to Krakow. Total cost for two people was £50.
We would highly recommend Escape 2 Poland as a tour organiser.
In summary, Krakow old town has lots to do, see and buy. The Hilton is an exceptional hotel and Escape 2 Poland organised an exceptional trip to Auschwitz.
