trustworthy midnight transportation from Airport to Hotel- Krakow

I'm a bit nervous about this - and so is my pocketbook. The rates I've been given are pretty pricey. Because of our time of arrival IF our plane is on time (about 11:40 p.m.), I'm concerned for safety (two women, yes, I'm a little paranoid) and cost. Can someone please advise. I've been checking on the hotel sending a driver (which costs more but I might feel better about) or hiring from Krakow airport. Thanks :-{

When I visited Krakow a few years ago I also arrived via a very late flight. I simply took a taxi at the official taxi stand to the hotel....no problems-very routine. It was no different than any other taxi I've taken around Europe. Most of the taxis are very new Mercedes, with meters; the driver was very professional. I'm a guy and my experience might be different than two women, but IMO taking a taxi is reasonably safe. The taxis are allowed to charge more late at night, but the airport is very close to the city center, the fare won't be prohibitively expensive.

The taxis are safe are reliable transportation to your hotel; we also arrived late and had no issues getting to the center of Krakow.

As also noted, the airport is near the city. Personally I am looking forward to spending the weekend of the 21st of May there after I complete my business in Poznan.

I have taken taxis from airport to market square
Krakow 4-5 times. Prices have been stable except
for an early morning run, 4 am, to catch flight.
I was told there is a higher rate charged between
midnight and 6 am. It was programmed into the meter.
