Reviewed October 3, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Krakow. The location of the Apartments was excellent only about 10 minutes from the centre of Krakow. The Apartments are spotless and are fully equipped with all mod cons. We would definitely recommend these apartments and when we visit Krakow again we will definitely be staying here. Only recommendation would be to the owner is to supply a toaster other than this the apartment wants for nothing.

Met by two very helpful young lads named Adrian and Daniel who carried our bags and instantly made us feel very welcome in these "Elegant" Apartments. They were even so helpful as to give us some advice on what was worth seeing in Krakow. The apartments are ideally situated only moments from the much revered centre of Krakow and on the edge of the Kazmeirz district where there are plenty of restaurants and bars. The courtyard is in itself enough to make these apartments worth staying at, with a grand tree the focal point surrounded by little bedded gardens. It looks especially good at night when illuminated by the garden lights. An apartment on the first floor was our home from home, it was spacious, modern (WiFi and staellite TV) and the cleanliness was second to none. Sleeping there was a treat as the beds were very comforatable with cotton bedding. The bathroom was contemporary and clean cut with a very nice rainfall shower. We will defintiely stay there again on any future visits yo Krakow. Thankyou for a wonderful holiday.

I booked Elegant Apartments on the recommendation of other reviewers and I wasn't disappointed. I was met by Adrian who very kindly carried my suitcase up 6 flights of stairs for me. Unfortunately there is no lift, so if anyone is wanting to book and has problems climbing stairs ask for an apartment either on lower or ground floor, I didn't mind the stairs as the apartment was excellent. There is ongoing renovation work but this did not bother me at all or spoil my stay , as I was out every day anyway. The apartments are very secure and safe, the building is probably the nicest in the block, has a big outer street door that you need a code for, that leads into a lovely hallway, which is where the work was taking place. This leads you out to a lovely little courtyard with plants and tree, at night if coming back late the lights come up as you walk through, then you need another code for inner door. Each apartment has it's own key and doorbell, my apartment was a good size, very clean and nicely decorated. I was able to buy food for my breakfast from nearby grocery stores. There is everything you need in the kitchen, no cooker but a two ring hob. I ate out in the evening anyway so other that breakfast didn't need to cook. Bathroom was nice with a good selection of towels, no toiletries so bring your own or buy from the nearby shops. Bedroom /living area was also of a good size. I also asked Adrian for the loan of an iron and Ironing board which he let me have the use of for the duration of my stay. The Apartments are just a short walk form the old town and jewish quarter, lots of different places to go eat and eating out is so cheap in Krakow. Although the Apartments are on a busy road you cannot hear the traffic , so I had no problem sleeping. I have no hesitation in recommending Elegant apartments, it's a lovely family run business and I wish them all the best for their future plans as Adrian explained to me what they hope to achieve. I would stay here again!

Room Tip: If problem climbing stairs ask for room on either lower or ground floor as no lift.

The apartment (with balcony) is in a newly refurbished old building, with a well planned and well maintained courtyard. It looks quite magical at night as the lighting has been designed to enhance the plants and huge tree which stands majestically in the middle. The design and quality of the fixtures and fittings in the apartment ( some sourced from Germany, Italy and Holland) are to a very high spec. with attention to detail. Even the handrail into the building had been designed and made by a local designer. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. Rooms large with high ceilings. Beds comfortable. Furnishings lovely.The service is exceptional, provided by Adrian, who is a true professional. He is friendly and polite, and on hand and ready to help. The location is perfect. At the edge of the Old Jewish quarter and just over ten minutes walk to the square in Krakow city centre (through planty, a tree-lined walkway surrounding the city) So plenty of restaurants and sights nearby. A wonderful place to stay. Can't fault it. Planning to return next year.

What a gem. Met by a lovely young man Adrian who made us feel very welcome. The apartment was fabulous had everything we needed and more. The balcony overlooking the courtyard is wonderful, especially at night when the courtyard is lit. The apartment is very modern, the light turn on and off automatically when you enter or leave a room. Our apartment had two beautiful bathrooms with huge rainfall showers and a hairdryer. It's very well located for the Jewish area and the main square being a very short walk. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: The 3 bedroom apartment (number12) has a balcony. It can be a two bedroom apartment also.

A good apartment with good quality accommodation. Could not fault it on any level - the location was particularly good and is only a very short walk from the city centre. Air conditioning was excellent especially on a number of days when the temperature was very high

My partner and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Elegant Apartments in Krakow. The apartments are located a short distance from the main market square; around a ten minute walk and are on the outskirts of the Jewish district of Kazimierz.

On arrival we were greeted by a young man; Adrian who looked after us for the duration of our stay...he was brilliant and nothing was too much trouble for him. Adrian also checked us in at 11am because the apartment was ready to go.

The apartments themselves are situated in an old building which on first sight seemed a little tired. However when we entered the apartments it was a revelation. We found the apartments have been renovated to a very high standard. Our apartment had beautiful high ceilings and lighting, and was furnished beautifully. There were also plenty of heaters in each room and even though it was -2 degrees outside we were very warm inside.

The kitchen area had a full size fridge freezer, four ring hob, microwave, dishwasher and a filter coffee maker. There was also plenty of cutlery, utensils, washing up liquid, sugar, salt, pepper and herbs!

The bathroom had a beautiful walk in rainfall shower, hairdryer and there was Dove shower cream provided as well as plentiful toilet roll.

The bedroom was beautiful and had plenty of clothes storage and the comfiest of beds. In all we really enjoyed our stay and will be staying at the Elegant Apartments again.
