The hotel Alexander is well placed for the city - 10 minutes walk to the main square. Staff all speak excellent English and were very helpful. Breakfast was good and for 2 zloty ( about 40p) we were able to make a sandwich to take with us o our excursion to Auschwitz. No bar or evening meals but there is so much choice in the city, (very close to the Hotel), thats its not needed! Bedroom and ensuite very comfortable & clean.
