“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

I absolutely loved Krakow and the Red Kurka apartments. We stayed in apartment A. The apartment is very comfortable and very well stocked with everything you need - including a washing machine. It is in an ideal location, walking distance to everything. Our hosts were so helpful and accommodating. Eva was there waiting for us at 11:00 pm when we arrived later than expected because of a late train. On our final day we were taking an overnight train. We did not have the room booked for that night but since no one was checking in that day they let us stay the entire day for no charge. I highly recommend visiting Krakow and staying at the Red Kurka apartments.

We only stayed in Red Kurka for two nights but both were very enjoyable. There was much more space than in a hotel room with the bonus of a kitchen and dinette. The kitchen included a washing machine which is a real bonus when you don't have much time in a city. (I recall wasting nearly a whole day in Berlin looking for a laundromat).It was very warm and cosy during the cold November nights and extremely quiet. Karl couldn't have been more helpful and is extremely prompt with replies to emails.

Five of us stayed in apt B for 3 nights and could not have been happier with everything, the apartment was warm, clean, modern and had everything we needed including plenty of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel which was much appreciated. The location is ideal being minutes’ walk to the square and a short walk to most of the main attractions, there is also a handy supermarket round the corner. The hosts Ewa and Karl were really friendly and helpful. I thought this apartment was excellent value for money and would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at Red Kurka apartment C for 9 nights in October 2013. Even before I arrived the hosts had been fantastic in helping me out with arrangements. On arrival I was warmly greeted and shown around the apartment. It has everything you'd need with plenty of room to relax - much more space than the comparably priced apartments I'd stayed in other cities on the same trip. The apartments are located right on outside edge of the old town which makes them a perfect base for exploring and close to all amenities. I'd highly recommend this apartment and I definitely intend to stay there again when I next return to Krakow.

My husband and I spent a wonderful 5 nights (9/28/13 to 10/3/13) at Red Kurka and its apartment A. Lovely apartment with all the amenities in a beautiful building. The weather was cold and our apartment was warm... Next door is a wonderful supermarket and in the courtyard of the Red Kurka apartments is a lovely little restaurant/wine bar. That said, the building is in as oasis of quiet. The old town is only a 5 minute walk away yet back in the apartment we felt pleasantly removed from the tourist crowds. Arrival and departure was handled perfectly. There is so much to do in Krakow and the surrounding countryside that we could have easily spent another 5 days always knowing that our apartment A was waiting for us!

5 of us stayed here for 2 nights.

Fantastic apartment for a group/family in Krakow.

Location is 2 mins from main square and in easy walking distance of Wawel Castle and the Jewish quarter.

Host was very helpful, they have put together their recommended restaurants/cafés/bars which is helpful and our host phoned round taxi companies to get us the the best deal on a trip to auschwitz!

The apartment is modern with a nice bathroom including soaps/shampoo etc. Large flat screen TV in the living room if you want to watch it! Beds are fine and apartment has an oven, toaster enough cutlery and plates etc, not that we used them much only being there for 3 days.

Overal I would definitely recommend these apartments, the best value for money I have come across in accommodation. Will be staying here again when visiting Krakow!
