                                                              Absolutely Wonderful Apartment

                                                              Twice a year I take my mother on holiday and this Spring trip was to Krakow. When I found and booked this apartment I was pleased with my choice. However when we arrived we were both amazed. The thing the photos do not show is the size of the rooms. My mother had the room with the enormous double bed. I had a small bed in the largest room which must been well over 30 feet square. The ceilings are the highest & the rooms the biggest I have ever stayed in. The apartment has an excellent bathroom. The kitchen had loads of plates and cutlery as well as a toaster and kettle for the English. Many rental apartments poorly furnished - this apartment is filled with many wonderful and carefully chosen pieces. There are beautiful tapestries and paintings - as well as 19th century photos of ancient Cracovians. The light fittings are quite stunning. Everything is in the house photos, but are so much better when you are there. There are many pieces of old fashioned furniture which I tend to dislike as they overpower in a small apartment. Here you see them in the setting they were designed for and they looks splendid. There are also many comfy places to sit. The balcony at the back of the apartment was wonderful as well. I was able to spend some time here but I would imagine it is at its best in the summer. The apartment is central and it takes no time to walk to the Old Town, Castle or the many local restaurants. Dietla. Margaret the owner recommends 2 restaurants Kuchnia u Doroty which we visited and I had an excellent meal of Potato pancakes with Goulash whilst Mum had soup. Very good food and excellent value. We also went to Restauracja Pod Baranem which we thought had Goose on the menu but did not. The meal was OK and the setting was good but we had better food elsewhere. Perhaps we went to the wrong place. Our first meal was at Polakowski on Ulica Miodawa, Lovely Polish food & most of the diners were local. We also went to Kuchnia Domowa nearby and had two good meals. Probably the best place was The Black Duck in Ulica Poselska. They specialise in Duck and we had two huge meals there including our last meal in Cracow. We took advantage of the offer to have the charming Paulina pick us up at the airport and we also asked her to bring us back as well. The cost was reasonable and easier then trying to navigate ourselves. All in All a wonderful apartment in a great City. Highly Recommended. Margret and Paulina provide an excellent place to stay.

                                                              A modern, clean residence ideal for travelers!

                                                              This property is in a brand new block close to the heart of Krakow. The apartment itself is clean, bright and well-maintained. We had a fantastic time and the apartment was perfect for the two of us! I'd thoroughly recommend this apartment to anybody wishing to come to Krakow for either work or pleasure!

                                                              An Amazingly Situated & Gorgeous Apartment

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              5 adults (a single female, a younger male & female couple and a retired mature gent with his retired lady wife) spent 4 nights & 5 days in this warm, comfortable, stylish, safe, fully equipped & easy to find, historic yet respectively modern, just lovely, Krakow apartment! The shower is a pleasure, one of the best I've been under! The very soft water adds to this wonderful revitalising experience! Amazing high ceilings & an experience with the way you enter the building, through the gorgeous gate and up along those stairs! Observe the historic wooden dentist chair; should be in a museum! What a brilliant location! A very short walk to the gorgeous city's main square, Rynek Glowny. But the gorgeous intriguing sites, smells, friendly people, amazing shops, yummy food & drink don't begin there, but literally from the moment you leave your apartment with the coffee shop situated right next door! But, it did take a little longer to walk to the Rynek than advised, as you just can't help yourself & pop into these shops, photograph and walk into one of the many beautifully historical churches, stop for just that one more coffee or my favourite, black tea with a slice of fresh lemon (really does work and tastes refreshingly good) & go on then, one of those MASSIVE freshly baked doughnuts with rose petal jam filling, hmmm, yummy yum yum! Don't worry about your teeth though, there's a dentist located directly below the apartment and with all the walking you'll do, you'll burn off more than you consume, I hope I did anyway! The taxi the owners organised from the airport was seamless and the best way! The driver was very friendly and chatty in good English plus informative about Krakow, it's history and current state! We visited Auschwitz and Birkenau with the same taxi company, without booking on to a tour, again the best way, as you'll see & read more! Entrance is free BUT make a donation on your way out, we did at Birkenau and buy a guidebook! It's a little out of the way, so the taxi made it comfortably convenient door to door, as a whole day is needed and it's most certainly an emotionally draining but important experience and must-do visit! Also visited Schindler's Factory & the amazing awe inspiring salt mines by train from the nearby ultra modern station with more shops & food places than I've seen in the UK under one roof! Plus of course happily got lost (hard to do) around the Jewish quarter & Krakow's gorgeous city streets! Thanks!!
