Help with travel from Budapest to Krakow - and lodging

My wife and I will be taking a river cruise May or June of 2022. We'll end in Budapest and want to travel on our own to Krakow. Train? plane?
Once in Krakow, we'll be looking for lodging - not the fancy 4 and 5 star hotels, but modest accommodations in good walking areas, and where we'd still get help with making plans to visit Auschwitz. We may also consider visiting Warsaw after Krakow. We welcome your suggestions!

From Budapest to Krakow - Plane would be your best option, since you have large mountains between those 2 cities - train / bus travel be longer and not so comfortable. In Krakow check out Hotel Wyspianski ( https://www.hotel-wyspianski.pl/en/ ) ( https://www.booking.com/hotel/pl/krakow_wyspianski.html ) which is right outside of the old city wall or search booking.com or similar for many other options within old city of Krakow or Kazimierz, Krakow. Wyspianski was a tourist hotel - so book your excursions to Auschwitz and also worth seeing Salt Mines thru them or your hotel of choice. Also check with any hotel you book if they have a shuttle of some sort to transfer you from airport to the hotel ( since airport is bit outside of the Krakow). As for Warsaw - this maybe a skip, depending on how much time you have ... But now with fast trains between Krakow and Warsaw, it maybe OK for a day trip. If you do opt. for Warsaw - once you arrive hit the "old city" section. and just remember it was leveled during WWII and completely rebuild.
