Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Krakow - Katarzyny

A spacious, three bedroom apartment in the heart of the Jewish Quarter.

Our apartment, 'Katarzyny' ('Katherine') is in a quiet cobbled street in the vibrant Jewish quarter of Kazimierz. It is on the third (top) floor of a 100-yr old block built by an eminent Jewish architect. 68 shallow steps lead to the flat, with no lift, but we find the exercise useful after a Polish meal! It is a large (100sq m) open-plan apartment, spacious, light and airy, with beautiful old beams and a wooden floor throughout - the perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day. There is also a balcony, big enough to sit out on.

Owned by an artist and a photographer, with many features reflecting this, there is a very large living area with two comfortable sofas, two desks, a dining area for 6-8 people and a well-equipped kitchen with good quality pots and pans. 3 bedrooms lead off the main area, comfortably sleeping 6 people. There is a table tennis set, classic games and some art materials. The flat is close to numerous restaurants, bars and Krakow's best bakery; we will happily send our own recommendations to you if you wish.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • not suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Cozy Apartment in the Heart of the Jewish Quarter

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a great find! The owner, Jo, is very helpful. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a small map of the city in the mail with the apartment marked on it as well as an outdoor pub/beer garden close by in case we need to wait to check in. She also emailed me an extensive list of restaurant, bar, and cafe recommendations, including an amazing, but teeny tiny ice cream shop, which was delicious.

The pictures are true to the apartment. Everything was clean. There is plenty of space for a family or group of friends. Our small group utilized all of the bedrooms and we appreciated the open plan kitchen, living, and dining room. There is also a small balcony off the dining area, which is great for getting some air, especially in the summer. The apartment is not air conditioned, but fans are provided, which we definitely used in July! The bedrooms and bathroom all have sky lights that can be opened for ventilation.

I would say the only draw backs, for some people, is that there is no elevator/lift so you will need to walk up a few flights of stairs, and there is a bit of road noise from the tram that runs along the street perpendicular to the street the apartment is on. But if you are there in the colder months and have the windows closed, this should lessen the noise.

We liked staying in Kazimierz because it wasn't as touristy as the main market square area. There are also great restaurants and cafes in this area, so it is fun to explore.

I would highly recommend this apartment and its owner, Jo!

Better than in the photos

The apartment is brilliant; spacious, warm (we underestimated the temperatures in late October in Poland) and really well designed and equipped. Jo is hugely helpful, take not of her bar and restaurant recommendations! A superb break with fantastic accommodation.

Wonderful location lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

Jo was helpful and informative from the moment we booked . The apartment was clean spacious with a lovely balcony and perfectly located. It is 5 minutes from the old Jewish quarter which we preferred to the busier main square. We spent our evenings wandering to the square and relaxed with food and drink (so cheap) and people watched the evenings away. Krakow is amazing has something for everyone and has fast become one of our favourite cities. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect introduction in renting this wonderful apartment. If you are thinking of going to Krakow make it a minimum of 6 days as a weekend will not be long enough !!

Spacious,spotless apartment in heart of Krakow

  • 5 of 5

Can’t recommend this apartment highly enough! Spacious, comfortable, immaculately furnished, the three of us had a great time living in this pad, which is situated in the vibrant Jewish Quarter, within walking distance of terrific pubs, superb local eateries and major attractions like Wawel Castle. We actually found the local square to be superior, where nightlife is concerned, to the Main Square - less tourists, better bars, brilliant atmosphere. As for the apartment itself, it is just as the pictures show - immaculate. We felt at home from the moment we stepped over the threshold. Also had no end of fun playing ping pong on the large dining table!! Thanks to Jo’s email, we gained lots of insights into the city and loved checking out her recommendations; collecting the keys also proved easy, as Karolina lives just a few doors down (as another lodger pointed out); K also gave us many helpful pointers. All in, a fantastic apartment, you can’t go wrong!

Look no further, this apartment has is all.

  • 5 of 5

Met by Karolina who lives only 3 doors away. Couldn't fault this apartment as it is spacious, well equipped and a good location. It is only a minutes walk to the Jewish Quarter, a short walk to Wawel Castle and a few minutes further to the wonderful old town square. For us there were several big plusses. 1. Jo promptly answering questions and providing heaps of information about local cafes and bars. 2. The easy collection of the keys from Karolina. 3 Karolina also arranged secure, inexpensive car parking in the church grounds just around the corner.

Highly recommended

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us spent a memorable June weekend in Krakow, with the flat proving an excellent choice of accommodation. The flat is centrally located, being just a stone’s throw from the lively Jewish quarter, 20 minutes’ walk from the main square, near to the castle and within easy reach of the river. The flat was clean, airy and well equipped, whilst the balcony is a lovely touch. We would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend it to all. Enjoy!

Krakow, the primary tourist destination in Poland and a centre of academic, cultural and artistic life, is a beautiful medieval city boasting many world-class attractions. Our apartment is on a quiet cobbled street in the former Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, close to historic squares, churches and synagogues, evocative candle-lit bars and excellent (and varied) restaurants. You can visit numerous independent shops and the daily flea market, discover locations used by Steven Spieberg in 'Schindler's List', or cross the Vistula river via the new footbridge to the impressive Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCAK), the Historical and WW2 Museums and Schindler's factory. Also on the doorstep are the wonderful Ethnographic Museum, the moving Galicia Jewish Centre and the child-friendly Science and Transport Museum. Historic Wavel Castle is a ten-minute walk away, the Old Town and spectacular main square a further five, although both can also be reached by a leisurely stroll along the river.

Ski: There are many places to ski near Krakow, some of which you can get to using public transport. The nearest are Podstolice (15km), Spytkowice (40km) Polczakowka (65km) and many more slopes and villages in the stunning Tatra mountains, including the main centre of Zakopane (100km). The apartment includes two wooden sledges! In the summer season the Tatras are a wonderful place to walk and hike.
