I was impressed by the Ventus Rosa even before we arrived in Krakow. As it was my husband & I's first visit to Krakow we had many questions relating to airport transfers and excursions. The apartments receptionist Magdalena answered my emails very quickly and provided all the information I needed.
The apartments are perfectly located 20-30 minutes from the airport by taxi and about a 10 minute walk from the main market square. The surrounding area is very quiet and therefore we were able to have a good nights sleep after an active day of sightseeing.
We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was situated on the top floor of the building. I was really impressed with the size of the apartment and the lovely high ceilings. The kitchen / diner contains everything you could need (kettle, toaster, microwave, hob) plus cutlery, crockery, pots, pans and a table suitable for four people. The bathroom is extremely modern and ample white towels were provided. My only criticism of the bathroom is the shower screen; it's designed for a standard bath but doesn't fit properly to the corner bath. I would have preferred a standard bath or a large shower cubicle instead.
The bedrooms are large and each have a flat screen TV and plenty of storage for clothes etc, there is also a large wardrobe and shelf unit in the hall area. I would have liked a mirror in one of the bedrooms (positioned above the dressing table) in addition to the one in the hallway.
We organised our airport taxi transfers and trips to Auschwitz and Wieliczka Salt Mine through the apartments reception and the whole process was straightforward and faultless. The receptionists were all friendly, helpful and spoke fluent English.
If you have fitness / mobility problems ask for a first floor apartment as the building doesn't have a lift. Although we were on the top floor the stairs weren't a problem for us, I loved the staircase with it's stained glass windows / attractive floor tiles.
Despite my (very miner) criticisms I would definitely recommend this apartment hotel as it offers the perfect combination of independence / self containment and helpful, knowledgable staff. In fact I am hoping to return to the Ventus Rosa with my mum in December to visit the Krakow Christmas Markets.
