Superb apartment with great facilities . Clean and freshly decorated and very comfortable beds . Close to the centre of Kraków but quiet at night . Would recommend without any doubt

It was larger than we needed (we're a couple), but we appreciated the spaciousness though we rarely used the living room. It could easily accommodate 4 people, with one day bed in the dining room and another in the living room. Rebecca was helpful to us during the booking phase, and the information she provided on the apt., local markets and restaurants, and transportation was useful. We would definitely rent Rebecca's apartment again!

                                                                                                    Stuart the owner was brilliant, responded promptly not only via this website, but by phone and text messages. Even though he was himself going on holiday, he sent out the keys to the apartment via the post, same day as the deposit (later refunded very quickly) and remaining balance was being paid, decent example of trust! So glad we caught him and didn't miss out! Having the keys with us was a first and a great advantage, we didn't have to make contact and/or wait for an agent to appear, made our way to the apartment at our own pace without observing our watches, spontaneously decided to catch the amazing train from the airport to the central train station and then caught a taxi from the Galeria Krakowska Shopping Mall attached to the train station, which itself is worth a visit and a sign of the direction this lovely country is heading in. Go before it becomes too modernly western though! The apartment is not situated on the top floor, as per a previous review! Don't make this mistake, we carried our bags to the very top, but it's the floor below, on the third. You do end up climbing more steps than normal, due to the historically generous high ceilings, but they're a wide tread and in decent condition with landings to take a breather! But once you're in, you're conveniently situated in an amazing part of Krakow! Forget your bags and the stairs, start exploring! Knowing you can come back whenever you like, to a lovely, comfortably spacious but quaint apartment with surprisingly interesting views. Don't worry about making breakfast each morning, head out of the apartment, cross the road, turn left and keep walking (2-3mins) to Bagelmama, mouthwatering just typing this! After that filling breakie, head back on yourself to the Galicia Jewish Museum, definitely worth the sobering and informative exhibitions! Then just go on foot and explore the Old Jewish Quarter, especially the unique shops and squares, Plac Nowy and square on ul Szeroka, which contains Remuh Synagogue with it's Cemetery and Hamsa restaurant which will be a yummy experience! You're also not that far away to walk to the Wawel Hill with it's Castle and then onto the amazing charming city centre! Climb some more stairs up in the tower where the trumpeter plays, totally worth it, spectacular views! I don't work for these people, but the latest edition of Lonely Planet's pocket guide book to Krakow is inspiring, helpful and exposes places you would otherwise miss!
