These apartments are literally just 4 minutes walk from the main street gate to the Old Town and also round the corner from a 24 hour mini supermarket and near a chemist. There really is no need to stay in an expensive hotel as here was perfectly fine. They are clean and comfortable and have a little kitchenette, it isn't overly stocked with utensils etc but believe me when I say it is so so cheap to eat and drink out here, so other than basics you don't need anything else, it really was fine. There is no lift here and a number of stairs so I wouldn't advise it for anyone with mobility issues, but the rest of Krakow is quite flat. It is really close to anything and everything you could need including being a few streets away from the train station, bus station and the tram stop at the end of the road. From the outside and the gates it looks a little daunting, but once you're inside you will see that the apartments are great value for money and ideally located and has everything you need. Most of the apartments in the city have gate security like this, so this is nothing unusual and the crime rate is very low so please don't be concerned. The lady who runs the apartments Joanna, lives on the top floor and is kindly on hand for anything you need, she waited up late at night for us to arrive, due to our flight being changed and also kindly booked us a taxi to take us back to the airport. You can book trips through her, she was really helpful and this will be the place I recommend to my friends and family.
