Ventus Rosa Apartments

This apartment provided us with exactly what we wanted for a city break. It is situated in a quiet street just outside Planty which meant that much of what Krakow has to offer was within convenient walking distance. The apartments are clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. However their biggest asset is undoubtedly the reception staff who were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them and as a result we entrusted them with booking the various trips we undertook to Auschwitz, Wieliczka and Zakopane. Needless to say they also kept us right around the city as well. Thanks very much for an excellent stay and look forward to seeing you on our next trip to Krakow.

just return from Krakow and stayed here there were 3 couples all had own apartment and we all agreed what a find. clean comfortable only if u were spending a lot of time in the apartment would u think it small but for sleep/shower/breakfst its all u need. It's a safe area as the Russian embasssy is just across the street so 4 hr police presence and u r only a 5min walk to the main square the perfect quiet place after the buzz of the main part of town. the staff are really friendly and welcoming and so helpful for tours etc. if returning wont loook anywhere else and have recommended to friends going next year.

Room Tip: dont get 101 at street level can be noisy

We recently stayed at Ventus Rosa for 7 nights midway through our three week vacation in Poland. Our room (#1) was on the first floor right next to the reception area. We could hear some early morning and late night traffic coming and going but there wasn't much (and at least we didn't have to carry our bags up and down the stairs). The room was spacious, two twin beds, a desk, and small table with two chairs in the kitchen area. The bathroom was clean and modern, a little snug but still great. We were very happy to have a washing machine and used it to refresh our wardrobes. The staff could not have been more helpful. They helped us find a post office and even helped my father dial the phone :) One night a cousin who knew where we were staying decided to come surprise us at the apartment but we were out. He waited for a bit and then left. The girl at reception waited til we returned, almost a half hour after she should have gone home, just to tell us about our visitor. She then stayed another 20 minutes helping us search through a Polish directory so we could reach him since we didn't have his phone number. We told her several times that she should go, we could try again in the morning but she insisted on helping us right then. She was so sweet. The location was fantastic for the price too, being just outside the planty you can walk anywhere you need to go. We walked all the way to Kazimierz, no sweat. Definitely a great choice in Krakow!!

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.

My husband and I stayed at Ventus Rosa for 4 days. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who spoke fluent English. Our apartment had everything we needed and more, especially for the price we paid. 5 minute walk to the old town and 2 minutes to tram. Very close to shops, restaurants, etc...but not so close that we were able to be away from the noise of the city.

Thank you for your feedback. Our apartments are located far from the main streets. The nearest road is one-way and rarely frequented. At the present time it is not possible to avoid any traffic in the city center. Even the smallest. We invite you once again to take advantage of our hospitality.

Stayed with my partner here for 3 nights (end of May 2013).
Have to say the customer service was amazing, they were helpful to arrange a taxi pickup from the airport (80Pln ~ £18), although it is within 15 minutes walk from the train station (which is also next to a large indoor shopping mall where you can get the usual like KFC etc), at night after landing at 21:30 we just wanted to get there fast.
(Airport to hotel takes 25 minutes in evening traffic)
The apartment itself was lovely, seperate bedroom, kitchen, entrance hall and bathroom (marble!), very spacious and high ceilings. The kitchen is well equipped but we never really used it except for the fridge as we are so close to the town square that food is readily available (even very late into the night)
It does come with a safe, ironing board, hair drier etc, it does not have a lift so it's climbing stairs all the way.

It is self catering so don't expect breakfast etc but being so close to everything it gives you a chance to explore.

There is an amazing restaurant called 'Chata' 5 minutes away (polish food at amazing prices) and a supermarket is also 5-10 minutes away on foot round the corner.

15 minutes walk will take you to the main square which is lively all evening, from the many bars / pubs to restaurants. But despite the abundance of cheap alcohol you won't see people throwing up or getting into fights, its all very very safe, with a lot of people speaking English.

The hotel is opposite what I believe to be the russian embassy so don't be unnerved by armed police (with assault rifles) near by 247, its a very safe area.

It was an amazing place to stay and if we ever go back to Krakow we will definately be staying here!

Greeted by pleasant staff, showed us the highlights on the map without asking.
Large apartment split into four rooms; entrance, bedroom, bathroom, great kitchen/dinning room.
Really well appointed, even gave us powder for the washing machine!!!
Very clean and tidy.
Slept like a baby, comfy bed, quiet.
Good location, a short walk to the market square but far enough away from the rat race.
Supermarkets close by, and only 15 min walk to the river and bus stops where most tours to the salt mines or Auschwitz leave from.
Would stay here again.
