Hotels for Krakow 2010?

Postby Mabeanie1 » Sun Sep 13, 2009 8:33 pm

Please be patient with me!! This will be my first event so I don't know how these things work - yet - but I am a quick learner, honest.

How do we go about booking our hotels for Krakow when the time comes? Do the event organisers have block bookings or agreed rates which we can buy in to? Or is there a "recommended" list? Or do we all make our own arrangements separately and potentially end up staying all over town?

Dear Wendy,
everything is under control. We're still making arrangements regarding the hotels. The list of the hotels will be available and there will be a certain discount for the registered participants.

And, Wendy, the vast majority of participants end up staying at a cross-section of the selected hotels that include Event-participant discounts. So, you'll be surrounded by Event folks.

Here are the conditions and rules of reservations:
* The prices you can see on this website are promotional prices, exclusively for the guests of The Leonard Cohen Event 2010.
* To book a room you need to contact the hotel directly and give the password: Leonard Cohen Event 2010.
* The conditions and rules of the bookings may differ and depend on each hotel. Usually, the hotels will require your credit card number.
* For the hotels, the basis for the verification of the guests of the Event will be the participants’ list at http://leonardcohenevent.info/registrat ... pants-list.
* The hotels mentioned here have booked rooms for the Event’s participants at the lower price for the period of 5-9th August 2010. You’re also welcome to stay longer in Kraków.
* All the prices given are gross prices.

Just divide the zlotys by 4 and you're close enough in eur
Multiply the zlotys by 0.35 and get US dollars.
There are numerous currency convertes onlie, I am using this: http://www.oanda.com/convert/classic

Does anyone have any idea how far the old part of town is from the Jewish quarter where the LC event hotels are located. We are coming as a family and would prefer to rent an apartment and most of them seem to be in the old quarter.

Thanks!

Padma,
I spent a few days in Krakow in May this year.
It is quite a walk from the old town to the Jewish Quarter. Trams run but I am not sure what time they stop at night. Are there not some apartments in the list that Sebastian provided? I will have to have another look. It is probably better to stay closer to where the action is than have a long walk back at night!
