A lovely apartment with a nice mix of original and modern features, including a balcony. The location is about ten minutes steady walk straight down a single road to the edge of the historic central area. Once there, the main tourist attractions are within walking distance or you can pick up taxis easily. If you want to go further afield from the apartment, there is a tram route outside. That raises one slight issue: whilst there is double glazing, the trams start early and run quite late outside the bedroom window. It didn't bother us, but some guests might see it as an issue. The other thing to mention is that the apartment is up several flights of stairs and there is no lift.
The owner of the apartment, Slawomir, is very helpful, always replies to messages and is otherwise easy to deal with.
There are shops, including a 24 hour Spar (yes really) very close, but I don't think we ever ate in, finding that the prices even in the city centre restaurants were very cheap compared to the UK.
A very spacious apartment, full of everything you might need for your stay in Krakow. Sleeps 6, with 4 are on the 2 double sofa beds. Very clean and tidy, a short 10 minute walk from the city centre (main square) Kitchen excellently equipped even with water and beer..! Very kind indeed.
The trams run past the block all the time. This didn't bother us at all but we can understand that it could be annoying. They start early in the morning and finish late at night - but it is worth remembering that this is a city break...not a countryside retreat. Perfect tram for getting home - especially from Schindler's factory. All in all, this is a perfect apartment for your visit. One thing not mentioned is the 64 steps up to front door. Really, they are no problem whatsoever but may well be for some with mobility problems. There is no lift.
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone. It's a great city with plenty to do.
My partner and I stayed here for five hot days in August. Slawomir met us for check-in, despite the late hour, and was friendly, helpful and responsive in all our dealings. I had searched for ages to find a period property with some character - as most places seemed over-renovated or new. Slawomir's flat didn't disapoint - it's in a beautiful old building, with high ceilings, large rooms and lovely original features, including two Art Nouveau tiled room-stoves, Deco doors and panels, and a parquet wood floor. The flat is well equiped and comfortable, with helpful basics supplied (tea, coffee, sugar, oil etc). Other travellers report the shaking with passing trams, which is certainly noticeable, but didn't bother us much. The only reason we didn't give a full 5 stars is the heat/noise dilema. The weather was exceptionally hot when we were there and while there's a fan, we had to sleep with the windows closed due to traffic noise. The double-glazed windows are very effective at blocking the noise, though, and the little balcony was great for people-watching on the street below!
I stayed in this apartment for a week with my wife and our 2 year old daughter. We enjoyed staying there as everything was very clean and neat. There are 2 small grocery stores in about 2 min walking distance and it takes around 10-12 min to walk to the old town (centrum). That walk is much fun as there are many shops and cafés on the way,
Slawomir (the host) was very helpful. He helped us with our luggage to the apartment and even offered to come and help us carry the luggage to the taxi upon departure.
I´d definitely stay there again if I were to visit Krakow again.
Very good value for money. It us well located. The old town is within walking distance. The appartment is how you ser it in the photos. The owner is very helpful.
i really enjoyed that it was so close to the city and it was close to transportation. Cozy apartment with enough room for six. The owner was friendly and people are so nice and helpful around that area. I will be back again.
