Gniezno - the hardest city to get around?

Will be visiting "The Nest" in September along with Poznan and Krakow. Me and my family speak hardly any Polish and all, and figure that Gniezno will be the hardest city to get around in as it is off the beaten path and probably has little tourist activity.

My great-great grandmother was born in Gniezno in 1876 and we believe came from Aristocracy.
Can anybody recommend a reasonable hotel? Are there decent hostels there? Places to eat and visit? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I've been facebooking native Gniezno residents as well

I've read much of the city via the internet, but was hoping somebody could share personal insight of Gniezno. Opinions, experiences, places to recommend, etc.

It's very Polish - don't expect much in the way of English to be spoken there. About the best thing about the place is the fantastic expressway through the city ;) In regards to accommodation - nothing is worth staying in there.

I'd actually stay in Poznan and just drive there - it's about an hour's drive each way, and Poznan is about as Western as it gets. But still - if you like adventure, Gniezno will be interesting for you!
