After sending a reservation request the landlord answered quickly and we could go through all formalities easily. The contact person in Cracow who brings the keys and gives tenants a short walk through the flat is friendly and speeks fluent English. He was always there if there were any questions. The flat itself is located very centrally. It's just 50 meters away from the next tram station. It takes about 5 minutes on foot to get to the main square. Close to the flat are small grocery stores, a big market place with fresh vegetables,fruits, etc. and few bakeries. For big shopping trips it is recommenable to go to Galleria Krakowska (10 minutes away on foot). The flat is furnished in a modern way, the pictures can tell. I especially appreciated that the flat is equipped with everything that is needed for daily life like knives, pots, blender, iron, washer, dryer, hairdryer, manuals for all technical devices, towels etc. Everything works, is maintained and clean. When I come back to Cracow one day I will definitely try to rent this appartment again. Cracow is really worth a visit and combined with that flat it's just perfect! Thanks again for everything =)

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!
