I would advise you bring a small amount of zlt just to get you through the first few hours and then either use an a.t.m. or exchange your cash through a kantor, with regards to your hotel i am not to sure where it is in relation to the train station, i would find out the exact address and see if it is within walking distance of the station. The train only costs around 8 zlt and takes about 15 mins.

You don't need any zlotys, there's an ATM at the airport. Take the train from the airport to the main train station, and your hotel is a 5 minute walk from the station.

An even cheaper alternative to the train is a minibus. On the road between the airport and the station you can hop on a minibus, it costs 5 zloty straight, non stop to Galeria Krakowska, which is next to the station in Krakow
