Without doubt, a perfect location for visiting the sights of Krakow. Airport transfer, arranged through the owner, worked perfectly, and he was there to greet us and explain everything we needed to know on arrival. The apartment is perfect for four ( I think 6 may be not so good ), with everything you could need. Clean, comfortable and warm, with all amenities.
We would have appreciated some extra touches, like maybe some milk in the fridge, as it was quite late when we arrived. Also the double bed needs a double duvet ( we juggled with two single ones - not ideal ) and some more comfortable pillows.
We were really pleased with our accommodation, loads of room, great location, very friendly owner, definitely would recommend staying here
The location of this apartment couldn't be more perfect perfect- very short walk (3 mins) to the main square where there are lots of restaurants as well as tour information if you haven't pre-booked anything. Check in was very easy, the owners were there to greet us when we arrived from the airport and gave us some good tips about sight seeing and restaurants in the area. The apartment itself was very clean and spacious - perfect for what we needed. It is on the second floor and there isn't a lift, so just be aware if stairs are any issue for you. We would definitely stay here again if we are able to make it back to Krakow!
Friends and I stayed in this flat for 5 nights. It was the most comfortable, cleanest, and best located flat of 4 rentals we had during a month-long trip. If Old Town Krakow is your destination, this flat is located only 1.5 blocks from the main square. Being a bit away from the square is desirable as there's quite a bit of drinking at one of the pubs nearby on the square. Thankfully we never heard any of that late in the night. The flat is convenient to the train and bus station too - I estimate about a 10 minute walk. There are 2 nice restaurants on the main floor of the building. The one that we ate at, Cyclops Pizza, had wonderful, 1st rate pasta and pizza. Lovely, friendly service, too. There is a locked door on the ground floor that gives access to the flat (I think the flat was on floor 2 - if steps are an issue for you, be aware). It was always locked whenever we left or came home. I felt very secure with this arrangement. The flat comfortably slept 5 (sofa bed was as comfortable as the real beds). The place was spotless when we arrived and the kitchen was well-enough equipped for what little cooking we did. There was a coffee pot but it required paper filters (flat bottomed kind). I tried to find filters in various stores in Krakow, to no avail. So, if you want to use the coffee maker, bring your own filters. There is an electric hot water pot and stove, of course. The management was very responsive when I reported that I couldn't get the heat to turn on. I contacted them later in the evening about this the second night we were there. It was chllly but bearable. The next morning, Magda came over to investigate (she had tried to help me that night by text but this didn't help) and when she wasn't able to get it to work, she had someone come and fix. We didn't need to be there to greet whoever fixed it. We had lovely heat that afternoon. There are individual heaters in each room which have their own individual controls. This is a great feature if you prefer a warmer room at night than others.
I would highly recommend this flat. One suggestion to anyone driving to Krakow or any other European city - do your best to arrive before dark. Even with Google map assistance, arriving in one of these big cities is really stressful. Get explicit instructions when you arrive about where you can park your car for 24 hours. In some situations, I have asked the host to ride to the parking lot with the driver. It can be very overwhelming, otherwise.
