Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Krakow - Apartment 1 and Apartment 2

2 apartments (4 bedrooms), sleep up to 15, city centre, 2 bathrooms, internet .

Our two beautiful apartments are located on the first floor in a 1900 century Cracovian town house.Most our guests rent the apartments separately - they are completely self contained. Therefore if you are looking for just one apartment you can, of course, rent just one - Apartment 1 can sleeps up to 9 people, Apartment 2 up to 6 people .However , if you are looking for super spacious apartment ( sleeping up to 15 people) why not rent them both? The apartments are devided by a common, private hall which is NOT a part of any of the apartments. When combined they will create one wonderfully specious and comfortable apartment. As our guests we have had groups of friends or 2 families travelling together. The apartments are full of light thanks to large, double glazed windows in every room. They are warm in winter thanks to the central heating and cool in summer thanks to old, thick walls that prevent the heat from outside get through.The location is perfect; walking distance to the Main Square, all the commodities also a short walk away. Peaceful, residential street. Renovated to a high standard with parquet flooring, high ceiling, a ceramic stove. Contemporary graphic art and a mix of classic pre-war and modern furniture and lighting, ensure comfort with plenty of local character and charm.

We took special care that all beds have a bed side lamp with light brights enough for reading - often it is a problem in rented accommodation.We hate it when it happens to us on our travel so we make sure our guests don't have this problem either!

Modern, fully equipped kitchens, central heating, flat screen smart satellite TV, DVD player, a cot or a high chair can be provided. Internet access ,free WiFi

Good reasons to book our apartment:: Our apartment, which we visit regularly with our children, has a unique location: Old Town is the heart of Krakow, that's where you want to be and yet in our apartments you will be away from the noisy city centre. From here you can walk to all tourist attractions. The Main Square is a leisurely 10-15 min walk. Wawel Castle is a short tram ride away and the tram stop is round the corner from our street. Public transport is inexpensive in Poland.

We always try to ensure that you have a fantastic time in Krakow and we will always be happy to answer all your email enquiries - all you need to do is ask.

You will be met at the apartment by our very friendly representative (who speaks several languages). He will show you round the apartment and explain how things work and recommend restaurants or places to visit if you wish to. We will also send you our personal recommendation of places to eat and see in Krakow. If travel with children - we can recommend places that your children will find attractive.

If you wish to travel to Auschwitz or visit a World Heritage salt mines in Wieliczka - we can help you organize your trip, too.

Our apartment offers the rare combination of space and elegance at an affordable price. Stylishly furnished; contemporary graphic art and a mix of classic pre-war and modern furniture and lighting, ensure comfort with plenty of local character and charm.

At the end of the street you can jump on a tram for a short ride to Wawel Castle – or to the famous Jewish Quarter at Kazimierz, where you’ll be also spoilt for choice with all the sights, restaurants, bars and nightlife. Kazimierz is one of the favourite destinations for locals and visitors alike. Just around the corner, there's a supermarket open 24hrs, called Kefirek, where you can buy all the necessary ingredients for a meal at home.

About Beata

I grew up in Krakow in an old, beautiful apartment. We rented it, like most Poles, from the state. Sadly my family was not able to buy the property after the communist regime collapsed. Even though I live in London now, I miss Krakow a lot. When I found a great apartment in the very heart of the city - I could not resist buying it. I love to come here with my family and we do so as often as we can.

We are never bored here - there are things to do for adults and kids alike. My favourite pastime ( when the weather is good!) is sitting in a cafe on the Main Square, soaking up the sun while sipping a coffee. My kids love coming in winter - the town is covered in snow and skiing in the mountains .We rent a car and 1.5 hrs later we are on a slope. I also like going to concerts, exhibitions and new galleries that have mushroomed in Krakow over the recent years .And that you can do in any weather!

Beata purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Beata chose Krakow

We decided to buy this particular apartment because of its fantastic location. We wanted to have an apartment near the Market Square but not actually on it. It can be very noisy on the Market Square with all the tourists staying up until early hours.

Our street is very peaceful and yet only 10-15 walk from the Market Square. There is a 24 hrs well stocked supermarket just round the corner. There are bakeries and cafes 2 min walk from the apartment. One has just opned literally opposite our building. When we are tired after the whole day of activities and we don't fancy walking home - we hop on a tram. The tram stop is 2 min walk from the apartments.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartments offer great comfort and space! You can combine the two and have one super large apartment that can sleep up to 15 people. But you can also rent them separately as they are completely self contained. They are our second homes and when we come here we often bring our friends. Therefore we have taken great care to make them feel cosy and welcoming.

They are at a perfect location - all our previous guests who have sent us feedback - loved the proximity to Krakow's main attractions and yet be away from the crowds when you want to. We have free WIFI and a flat screen smart TV in each apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We can only endorse all the other 5 star reviews by agreeing that the apartment is excellent both internally and in terms of its location. The supermarket Kefirek in Karmelicka street, just round the corner from the apartment is fine for everyday needs. The bakery opposite sells excellent bread and rolls. Inside the apartment is spacious and warm. It’s just as described on the website and the booking through Beata and the meetings with Andrzej on arrival and departure went smoothly.

As for Krakow itself, it’s a gem of a small city. It offers wonderful opportunities for culture and eating and drinking. We particulary enjoyed thick hot chocolate and spicy apple pies at Nowa Prowincja on Ulica Bracka. The guided cycle tour from Cool Tours is an excellent way to get orientated and later in the holiday you can hire bikes only and head out of the city by cycling along the banks of the Vistula. Whether you go to Auschwitz or not the museums in Krakow dedicated to the Nazi occupation of Krakow are chilling but informative and there is a special price ticket if you decide to visit all three – the ex-Gestapo headquarters at Pomarska Street, Schindler’s factory ( a must-see) and the Eagle Pharmacy on the corner of Plac Bohaterow Getta. Finally check out the live music at the Harris Piano Bar and Alchemia.We’d go back to Krakow like a shot – so much we didn’t do – and would have no hesitation in returning to Beata's fabulous apartment

RECOMMENDED!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place -a gorgeous flat, clean, warm, comfortable and so convenient for the centre without being totally on top of it -which meant quiet nights and a good nights sleep after walking around all day!

I can highly recommend it to anyone who wants to visit this fascinating city.

Krakow break.

  • 4 of 5

Hi Beata

Just to let you know that we had a fantastic 4 night stay in Krakow. We thought it was a beautiful city, well named the cultural capital of Poland. The apartment was lovely, very comfortable, homely and tastefully modernised.

We visited all the sites including Auschwitz, Birkenau, Schinder's factory and we walked to Plaszow concentration camp which we thought was very moving. Myself and my daughter loved the Cloth Hall in the main square and spent hours browsing in the shops and stalls while my husband contented himself enjoying the Tyskie lager.

We hope your representative found everything in order when we left and we are both looking forward to coming back to your lovely city in a couple of years time.

In the meantime we will have no hesitation recommending your apartment to our family and friends.

Many thanks

Lesley and family.

Cracovia 1

  • 4 of 5

I would like to thank you very much for our very enjoyable short break in your apartment Cracovia 1. Everything went to plan, taxi waiting for us at the airport and Andrej waiting at the apartment. His help and advice ensured we were able to make the most of our short time in the lovely city of Krakow. We found some great places to eat and also used your recommendation for the Pod Baranem, which was really good.

Your apartment was warm, welcoming and spacious, an ideal base for all our needs.

Great apartment in a fantastic city !!!

  • 5 of 5

The listing description of the apartment was very accurate regarding the location, layout with all facilities you would need for a city break, with a few extra home comforts. The owner, Beatta & her representative in Krakow, Andre were extremely helpful and delivered excellent customer service. Beatta arranged transfers for us which were reliable & reasonable. The apartment was lovely and clean, comfortable & well maintained. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone except the infirm, due to the stairs ( although I do think a lift was being fitted) the hallway was under renovation so not very inviting on first sight but don't let this put you off as the apartment is lovely, as I am sure the hallway will be when finished.

Activities we recommend include, obviously Auswitch & Berkanhau are a must see if you are in that area, the Salt mine is worth a visit but don't do the 3 hour tour ( we just did 2 and that is more than enough). The city is beautiful and has countless bars and restaurants, of which we sampled plenty and we are confident that you could walk in any and not be disappointed as every one we went in was lovely, value for money, excellent service and good food!!

We went in August 2011 for our second visit to Krakow, and the weather was lovely, the first time we went was March 2009 when the weather was freezing but either season it is a beautiful place to visit and we will definitely be returning and very likely will use this apartment again !!!!!

weekend break

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful apartment, perfect for our stay in Krakow. Spacious and clean, in an excellent and safe location, all of our party very pleased with it and I will most certainly be recommending it to others and may even stay again myself one day!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We hope that all our guests have similar experience to yours. If you think about visitng Krakow again - consider coming in winter when the city is often covered in snow and looks fabulous. Some guests combine the visit with skiing holidays in nearby Tatra mountains. There is also a slope very close by ( about 30 min from Krakow) - inexpensive and good fun! We loved it! Worth a try!

Krakow Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment north west of the main square (10-15 mins walk) in a quiet residential area opposite the main Police headquarters. Still having renovations on the outside but this did not affect us. Many original features are retained and the apartment is very spacious, clean and well equipped. There is enough room in the kitchen area to seat 6 comfortably so makes it more like a dining room. All details are correct as mentioned on the website. Our visit coincided with a bank holiday and John-Paul's beatification which meant many shops (especially the 24hr supermarkets close by) were closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. You get a better exchange rate from the local Kantor/Bureau de change than the Banks in town or in England. The 292 bus from the top of Kamelika Street is ideal for the airport and at 3pln is great value, take care though as the timetable is different for weekends and holidays!A visit to Auschwitz is a must but research bus times carefully and try to get there for the 1st english tour at 10.30 and then every hour. You will need all day (the official Auschwitz website is not very clear/helpful about timings etc). The owners' local respresentative, Anjay, is very helpful and informative and speaks excellent english. It's nice to have the security of a local contact in case of need, which we didn't as everything went like clockwork. We would definitley recommend this apartment and hope to visit again to see the countryside and explore more of the town.

Our apartments are located in a quiet, residential street in the centre of Old Town in Krakow. On the way to the Market Square you will find an array of restaurants, cafes, bars and boutiques. You do not need a car in Krakow - you can get everywhere on foot or by tram. Market Square is about 10 min walk away from the apartment.

Wawel Castle and the famous Jewish Quarter - Kazimierz- are a short tram ride away. The tram stop is just round the corner on Karmelicka street. In Kazimierz you will be also spoilt for choice with all the sights, restaurants, bars and nightlife. Kazimierz is one of the favourite destinations for locals and visitors alike.

You can do all your food & drink shopping locally.

Just around the corner, there's a supermarket, called Kefirek, opened 24hrs; you can buy all the necessary ingredients for a meal at home if you don't feeling like going out.

If you plan to visit Aushwitz or go to see a famous salt mine in Wieliczka, we will be happy to help you organize your transport or advise you how to get there by yourself.

Ski: One of the most often visited places to go for skiing nearby Krakow is Zakopane. There is a good selection of ski slopes there for all levels of skiers.

Our biggest discovery was a ski slope 20 min away from Krakow called Podstolice, near Wieliczka. The slope is for beginners/ intermediate skiers. There is a ski hire and a restaurant just next to the slope.
