Krakow to Prague - Best way to go

Debating on what mode of travel from Krakow to Prague. We have plenty of time so I was wondering if the is an early morning train that goes all the way without train changes. What would be the duration? We will have a valid rail pass so would just have to pay for the reservations. Our travel times would be around 1 Dec, 2018. Since we will be staying a downtown hotel in Krakow, it seems to be a pain to go to the airport, endure the secrity lines, etc.
Thanks for any guidance and suggestions. By the way, any 4 star hotels you are like that are close to the train station?

Ryanair flies Krakow to Prague and takes an hour.

The train takes 7-9 hours. An overnight option is also available. Consider doing a stopover in a place like Olomouc (not bad for a half day's stop).

Did this in reverse last year, and since I've wanted to visit Olomouc anyway, it was a great way to go, since that's where I would change trains.

Olomouc is a nice town with lots of (to most unknown) history, and I managed to find myself spending the night under a football stadium

In hotel Gól, which was situated under the grandstand of the stadium - looked like it was from the Communist era, but quite clean.

Not sure if it still operates, as web page now shows a brand new hotel next to stadium.

I went from Krakow to Vienna, but did not find a good rail route at the right price so went with PolskiBus, which was the right price, though less comfortable.

Leo Express works wonders, it's quite cheap as well.
