“Nice, baby friendly apartment in the heart of Krakow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We stayed in apartment A for 8 nights. If I were to name the most important advantages of this apartment it would be: service and location. We were travelling with a 6 months old baby. Ewa (the hostess) arranged especially for us a crib, which was waiting for us in the bedroom upon our arrival. Ewa was very friendly and helpful...you really cannot ask for a better hostess.

The apartment was very baby friendly. It is located on the ground floor (easy with the pram), there is a bath and a very well equipped kitchen. The apartment is very quiet.

The location is just perfect. It is located a 3 minutes walk from the main square next to a small winery/restaurant.. perfect if you are with a baby/children ...you are back to the apartment in no time. A grocery store and a drugstore are also located very nearby.


In general we had a very nice stay in RedKurka. The only point of critique we had was an outdated bathroom and couple of things that would need a bit of refurbishing (for example the wardrobe in the hall, tiles on the floor).


We would definately recommend this appartment to people travelling with babies/children.

Fabulous apartment in a perfect location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Red Kurka apartment. It is walking distance to all the sites. Many great restaurants nearby. The apartment has everything you need. Water cooler, washing machine, well equipped kitchen and large plasma TV. Ewa was a great host. Met us on arrival and provided us with some tips for restaurants and bars. Overall a great trip to Krakow!

We booked the two bedroom apartment B and had a brilliant stay! Karl was great to deal with through the booking and the price was fantastic for the size, location and modern style of the apartment. Ewa made us feel really welcome and booked day trips and taxis for us. We were a two minute walk from the main square and right next door to a supermarket (hopefully they won't empty their bottle bank early in the morning when you're there!) which is great for buying breakfast stuff.... Will definitely come back if we're back in krakow!

Right from booking we experienced great hospitality from Ewa and Karl. They arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport at a reasonable cost which made getting to the apartments really quick from when we arrived. Having greeted us on arrival, Ewa provided us with a list of recommended bars, cafes and restaurants in Krakow- having visited several of these we can say it's definitely worth going on their advice! (In particular Charlotte for breakfast, Pausa for drinks and Gessler for dinner) Whilst there Ewa also went out of her way to help us work out the best route for the next leg of our journey in Poland.

The apartments are in a great location, about 5 minutes from the main square, 10 minutes from Wawel castle and 15 minutes from the Kazimierz district. They're off one of the main streets but set back in a courtyard so always very quiet.

We stayed in apartment C and were thoroughly impressed with the standard of the finishing. It was very tastefully decorated with some murals on the walls painted by Ewa's friend who's a graphic artist. The bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen well equipped- if you wanted to cook full meals you'd be more than set. There's also a LCD TV and water purifier which was a nice touch.

If we were to stay in Krakow again this place would undoubtedly be our first port of call- it's incredible value given the quality of the accommodation and hospitality of the hosts. Cannot recommend enough.

Staying in this apartment was a real treat and added greatly to the enjoyment of this beautiful city. Situated perfectly, the apartment was cool and quiet and Karl & Ewa were the perfect hosts - easy going and helpful - what more could you want?

We had a wonderful stay here in May. The location was perfect - just a short walk to the main square and old town. The accommodation was equally as good. It was spacious, very clean, stylishly furnished and extremely well equipped. Karl was very friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. We would definitely stay here again.

The Red Kurka apartment was the perfect place for our family of four. The apartment itself is very nicely decorated and very clean with ample room for all of us. I so love being able to relax in an apartment setting versus a hotel and Red Kurka allowed us to feel right at home. We arrived on a late train from Berlin and Karl was kind enough to wait for us to show us the apartment and tell us local eating places and sightseeing points of interest. We walked everywhere from the apartment, which is central to old town, the castle, the main shopping center, and the old Jewish district. I would definitely stay at Red Kurka again!
