Just returned from the Vanilla Apartment in Krakow where I stayed with my girlfriend for 4 nights. We have used Apartments Apart several times in various cities and really can't fault them, their service is always fantastic.
The apartment is clean and simple with good heating and an air conditioning unit for the colder months that you might find in Poland. The biggest selling point is the location which is just a couple of minutes walk from the main square but also set back far enough from the main street on its own cobbled alley way to be quiet most of the time.
There were a few things that may bother other visitors though. The WiFi stays connected but the connection to the internet frequently drops, usually this is just for a few minutes but at one point it went off for 24 hours, however this was resolved quickly by calling Apartments Apart and went back to its intermittent functionality. If you were planning to work from the apartment as I was for part of our trip this will probably cause you problems but if you are just using it to find activities, maps etc then it ought to be sufficient.
As mentioned before, the apartment was in the main very quiet considering how conveniently close to the main square it was however, every morning at 5am there are about 7 bins right outside the building which are emptied and whoever empties them couldn't make more noise if they tried so if you're the kind of person that can't get back to sleep after being woken up then expect to be awake pretty earlier every morning.
The only other noise problem we got was locals singing and shouting at about 3am on the street below on the first Saturday night and the Friday night, there is a bar below the apartment and I assume this was their closing time at the weekend.
Would certainly stay again but would probably try one of the other properties as I can't fault Apartments Apart's consistent impeccable service and the only problems here were outside of the company's control.
