Clean, modern, bright and spacious, with everything you need for a short break. The beds were very comfortable and the aircon was very efficient, which was a blessing, as the week we were there Krakow was very warm. Location was also excellent. There's a supermarket just below the apartment, not the cheapest, but very handy for your basic needs, and a decent selection of beer. The Railway Station is very close, which makes the transfer from the airport by train very easy. It is also a short pleasant walk to the Old Town and Market Square. Krakow itself is a lovely place to visit, and walking between most of the places of interest is no problem. The Old Town itself is surrounded by plenty of green spaces where you can relax and enjoy the beauty of the City. Plenty of restaurants and bars just about everywhere you go. We particularly liked the atmosphere in and around the Kazimierz District in the evening. Plenty of live music, friendly bars, cafes and a large variety of places to eat to suit all budgets. Just a mention for the owner, Mac, who's communication was excellent throughout.

We had an enjoyable time in Krakow and to our satisfaction the flats met all our expectations! Very clean, lovely location, very comfortable and spacious, more than enough room for the 9 of us as we rented both flats! The flats are well equipped and with great Internet connection! In the immediate vecinity there are excellent restaurants and cafes! We certainly recommend the flats without any hesitation!
