We have 5 people traveling from Berlin to Krakow and want to know if this is a reasonable way to travel?

Why wouldn't it be? It's just a 5.6 hour drive. –  Nick Stauner Jun 30 at 3:41
Please see this question. You can only use the big four (Avis, Hertz, Europcar, Sixt). –  Thorsten S. Jun 30 at 7:32
Do you have specific concerns? Do you want to know how it compares to other options, price-wise or otherwise? Are you afraid it would not be allowed at all? –  Relaxed Jun 30 at 7:34

Define "reasonable".
The distance isn't a problem, road conditions shouldn't be either (but don't expect US style superhighways) except some parts maybe in winter (snow and icing).
There might be rental agencies disallowing entry into Poland in their vehicles (crime statistics...) but you'd have to check that with your chosen rental agency and I seriously doubt it's much of an issue any longer (most eastern European car thiefs now steal them in the west, then truck the disassembled cars east for reassembly and sale outside the EU, safer that way).

So there's no reason you shouldn't be able to do it.

It's still an issue with Eastern Europe, at least with more expensive cars. Else +1. –  Thorsten S. Jun 30 at 7:33
I'd just ask at bigger companies as Sixt, Hertz, Eurocar... They wil have some offer I'm sure. –  frlan Jul 1 at 5:10
