Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Wesoła Wschód - Krakow

9 rooms, double bathrooms, sauna, aircon, fountain, Internet, sleeps 22 people

The property has three separate units located on the ground floor in the same building . Apartments: Austere Elegance (colonial style), Rustic Splendour (elegant Rustic style) and Red Desert Mirage (African style) are at hand, just across the commonly shared hall which means that a group of up to 22 people can be accommodated in one location but in completely independent apartments. The apartments feature such elements as real fountain, saunas, jacuzzi, air-con, Home Theatre, double bathrooms - Internet + computer, plasma TV in every bedroom and mesmerizing style. On top of that there comes excellent location - they are located 5 minute's walk from 2 most competitive places in Krakow. Interior architect brought unique character to all the apartments making them an excellent choice for guests with truly sophisticated taste.

Additional, independent & objective description: This is a description of the apartment written without my influence on its content by a certain advertising firm:

This is one the hippest apartments to have opened in recent times. The stylish blend of urban and rustic seems straight out of a trendy boutique hotel in London or New York. However, here you'll be stepping out onto a classic nineteenth century Cracovian street, by far the most congenial of the three in our opinion. The Rustic Splendour Apartment has been rustled up with amazing attention to detail. And besides four fantastic rooms, you can enjoy your own sauna at the end of the day. Location is excellent, between the Old Town and Kazimierz. And don't miss the antique market every Sunday at Hala Targowa!

Living room: Architect’s imagination was at its highest in here! Entering it from the hall, the living room has a massive door entrance designed to look as a stylish frame of a rustic picture. The decorative wall across the room features unusual brick design and thus creates a stunning picture in the picture effect. Adhering to the living room is a dining area and kitchen where the touch of rustic style was achieved with creative idea of kitchen designed to look like “Prussian Wall” – heavy diagonal wooden logs over furniture imitating natural rough wall surface create stunning effect. The dining area is features hand made to order ceramic lamps hanging over a beautiful oak table. Silhouetted against the stylish kitchen is a beautiful fountain and its soothingly gurgling water oozing from two meters high bright stone crack and slowly trickling down behind a large tree. Complementing the breathtaking effect of splendour with the rustic touch is a set of classy leather furniture.

Chiseled wood bedroom: Chiseled Wood Bedroom has a romantic flavour which comes with the warm combination of wood, classy leather and patinaed brass. The staggering effect of what we call the Chiseled Wood bedroom comes from its impressive highlight - a large wooden wall artistically treated with chisel in order to achieve sophisticated wooden irregularities reinforced by vertical light. Combination of seemingly accidental grooves and shades creates truly artistic and warm rustic décor. Below the decorative wall, are two single beds made of solid patinaed brass frames and classy leather. Hand made to order ceramic vases complement the rustic image of Chiseled Wood Bedroom.

We were very happy with our stay in this beautifully finished designer accommodation. Everything worked well and all minor requests for help were met immediately and with a great attitude by the accommodation manager.

Great apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, spotlessly clean, very comfortable. Great location in walking distance of all central attractions, eg. main square, Kasimierz., and very close to supermarket and farmers market. Walking distance to main train and bus stations with easy public transport to other places of interest, eg. Saltmines, Auschwitz, zoo, etc.

Thanks to Ania for making all arrangements easy.

Two highly competitive places of Krakow determine the attractiveness of any apartment location. Depending on individual taste, guests tend to hang out in glamorous Market Square or at enchanting Kazimierz areas. The location of Rustic Splendour apartment will surely meet the needs of all guests as it lies exactly in between the two main social night-life attractions - 5 minutes’ walk to both areas.

Experience ambiance of pure tranquillity in our Zen Rock Garden Bedroom. Inspired by the world-famous Zen rock garden at Ryoan-ji in Kyoto Japan, we fell in love with the idea of combining Colonial Style with Japanese Zen gardens meticulously created of sand grains reflecting natural mountains and rivers. Embedded in the floor, enormous lit-up aquarium displays soothing sand and stones landscape melting away your stress. The bed itself is a simple and beautiful design based on the idea of one curved line. Behind the bed, we have created a beautiful hideout we call ‘window in the window’ effect. Large wooden frame encapsulates window frame creating a bench divided by a little coffee table. Underneath, a set of old chests creates truly colonial feeling.
