Other hotels and accommodation

There are many small independent apartment-style hotels across the city of Krakow that are reasonably priced and well located. The city centre itself is easily navigable, with many of the transport links, eateries, museums and attractions within easy walking distance. Take a look at Air BnB for self catered apartments, and booking.com for a range of hotel choices. The streets surrounding the Main Square and Old Town are particularly nice, and well located.
