About Andrew Pawlowski
I was born in the United States, to parents who emigrated from Poland. I fell in love with Poland, and Krakow most so. In addition, I have close family living in Krakow, and I travel there often.
Andrew Pawlowski purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Andrew Pawlowski chose Stare Miasto
I chose Krakow because I fell in love with the city, and have close family there. There is so much to see and do, and the atmosphere is magical. From sightseeing; to museums; to skiing or mountainclimbing or hot springs nearby Zakopane, which is a day trip away; there is something for everyone.
What makes this Apartment unique
The location is perfect- close to the Main Square (with St. Mary's, the Cloth Hall, etc.); still walking distance to Wawel Castle, Kazimierz, many other attractions.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Great apartment in a good position
But sadly looking a bit tied
And would be nice to have a info pack
Little things need improvement
Crockery very poor
No toaster or grill rack
No sheet over bed mattress just mattress cover
Poor WiFi speed
Bedrooms curtains in need of repair
Bathroom mat badly bleach stained
We still had a great time; the apartment is in a great location. Your uncle and the cleaning lady where very friendly & helpful, but we speak no Polish & they speak no English.
Great location: close to old town, the train station and shopping malls.
The apartment is comfortable for 2 people and has all of the necessary amenities. There is no air conditioning but a fan at the apartment provided the necessary cooling. There are two TVs, one in the bedroom and one in the living room. The living room TV has a few English channels. The only issue I had was that the spin cycle on the washer did not work. However, the housekeeper, who speaks no English, was very helpful and showed me a second washer that I could use. Though I speak no Polish she always took the time to communicate in a way that I could understand without talking. I was met on time at the apartment at 8:30 in the evening and given all of the keys and shown the internet codes. I used the internet during my entire stay and was able to download Netflix movies to watch when I wanted. Overall I have a great time and would stay at this apartment again.
Could be perfect
Let me say this is a good place to stay. Great location. Comfortable bed. Friendly, helpful rental agents. But with just a little bit of tweaking, it could be perfect. 10cents worth of fabric softener would keep the towels from being terribly hard and the terry sheets from being too scratchy to sleep on. We had to use the second duvet over the sheets. Also the duvets are too small. I am 5'6" only and my ankles stuck out. There were 3 dead light bulbs and 2 flickering. The shower head needs to be replaced so it does not leak half the water away. And the stove is balky. It was great to have a washer. Wi-fi is too slow to open a picture or get into sites like Facebook very often. Someone needs to put the curtains back on the hooks. All of these things are annoyances easily fixed. If you are a light sleeper you will be bothered by street noise and the constant banging of doors. Like I said though, great location and comfy bed and the price is great. One word--there is NO coffeemaker. It is only a water heater and there really should be a toaster at the very least! It did not promise a toaster but I could not believe there wasn't one!
Good centrally located accommodation
Ideally located for old town centre and trams. Clean, comfortable accommodation would recommend.
Lovely located warm apartment.
We took the train from the airport to Krakow, this was straight forward, then walked to the apartment. Met by the cleaners who didn't speak a word of English. However we managed to get through. Very clean and extremely warm apartment. Just three friendly suggestions, blinds need changing both were broken. Bigger duvet on bed. And some useful telephone numbers, e.g. Doctors, Emergency numbers. Don't rely on the television no English Channels this didn't matter to us. Great location walking distance to most things, supermarket two minutes away. We used free walking tours, one to Jewish Quarters and one of the Old Town. Both very informative and interesting. Visited Salt Mines tried to make our own way there but this didn't work out. Used one of the tours, a must to visit. Five days was long enough, although we didn't see everything. Would recommend this apartment to friends and family
Excellent location and comfortable apartment.
Just a short walk from the centre of the old town market square. The apartment is comfortable and cosy with everything you need for a stay in this brilliant city.
Krakow (Cracow), Poland, Europe (In Downtown Krakow, Minutes by Foot from the Main Square) One of the many advantages of this apartment is its great location. It is situated just next to the main square, on the North side; and within close reach is the Wawel castle, the wonderfully-developing neighborhood of Kazimierz, as well as the main train station. Athena is located in a quiet building, inhabited mostly by foreign residents.
Other Activities: shopping, health/beauty spa, sightseeing, museums, restaurants
Ski: Skiing is available near Zakopane during the winter season. The town is reachable best by bus (~2-3 hours ride), available at the bus station (~10 minute walk from the apartment).
