Appartment furnished in traditional way but bathrooms and kitchens modern. Top floor not a problem for us. A little bit noisy early morning with trams but only 1 of our group affected as she lives in a very quiet location normally. Wouldn't be an issue for most. Krakow old town is not too big but location was fantastic. 5 minutes walk to main square. All night grocery and nice breakfast/ coffee shop across road. We did not see owner but she left great recommendations for restaurants etc and Paulina who picked us up at airport was delightful. She gave us lots of info and pointed out lots of points of interest. Would recommend taking the option for Paulina to meet you at airport. We ate out all the time as restaurants and bars were incredibly cheap. Meal and wine typically £10 or less. Loved the Polish food. We visit Auschwitz, harrowing but a must. I found the Salt mines overrated although my friends liked it. Walking tour of Jewish Quarter was fabulous. Lots of links to Schindlers List but the factory tour is just a recap of what we learned so wouldn't recommend both. Great location for history buffs but also lots of lovely buildings, churches etc and although we didn't go to any concerts due to time restrictions, there is loads for classical music lovers. Would thouroughly recommend Krakow and the apartment.

A SUPERB APARTMENT IN A GREAT LOCATION

5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in Krakow. The apartment was clean, spacious and airy. There is a small brewery, with a restaurant, next to the apartment. We ate at the restaurant on our first night and thoroughly enjoyed the meal and beers. There is a really good, reasonably sized supermarket very close to the apartment, which was useful for buying water, beer, wine and fresh bread. We were spoilt for choice with restaurants in Krakow. All were very good but Starka was the best restaurant we ate at. It was full, on a Monday night, and they turned many people away - it is, therefore, essential to reserve a table. We went to the salt mines, which was a good half day trip and we visited Auschwitz where we felt humbled. Four nights wasn't quite enough time to see end experience everything Krakow has to offer.
