Krakow (Cracow) apartment description
The apartment is on Ulica Tomasza in the heart of Old Town Krakow, just a three minutes walk from the Rynek – the ancient square which is the heart of the city. Although the bustle of the rynek is just a minute or two away, Tomasza is a quiet street, even if it does boast its fair share of bars, cafes and restaurants. In the space of around 100 meters from our front door, you can find traditional Polish cooking, French gastronomy, smart sushi, and a selection of bars to satisfy a broad range of tastes. It is the ideal base to experience all of the charm, history and hospitality of Krakow.
We are told that the building dates from the 1920s, when it was built as accommodation for the management of a local bank. A feeling of the times lingers in the abundant original features which remain, and the high ceilings and elegant double doors have an air of romance from another time which creates exactly the mood to savor a stay in Krakow.
The apartment has been thoroughly refurbished during 2012. Brand new windows, securing the flat from draughts and noise, a new boiler, brand new bathroom fittings, new flooring and a renovated kitchen give a great combination of old-world charm and up-to-date comfort.
Quality, new furniture and beds ensure a top of the range experience. The apartment is in an excellently maintained building, and, although on the third floor, the rare luxury of a lift makes heavy luggage no problem at all.
The apartment has two double bedrooms, and, by arrangement, further sleeping accommodation can be arranged for 2-4 people on sofa-beds. One sofa bed is in the lounge and another sofa bed is in one of the bedrooms. There is a bathroom with shower, sink , bidet and toilet and also a separate second toilet with sink.
The station, with fast trains to the airport, is an easy 5-10 minutes walk, making connections quick and convenient. Visitors with a taste for shopping should note that Galeria Krakowska, a large and attractive shopping mall, is just by the station.

The pictures do not do this beautiful apartment justice. The bedrooms are very spacious, the lounge/living room area is perfect and the kitchen has pretty much everything you would need for your stay. We would suggest an American coffee machine rather than the French press for future guests. Tiziana was great to work with as she was always timely with all my concerns and extremely helpful, going as far as sending me a download of restaurants and sites as well as where to park. There is a parking lot across from the Theatre that is free on Saturday and Sunday and from 8pm until 10am through the week. You will have to feed the meter for the day and place the ticket in the front window of your car. This was the least expensive compared to the 50 to 70 z's we found elsewhere. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone considering staying in the Old Town of Krakow. For a good meal but slow service, Dog in the Fog restaurant is very convenient, just down the street from the apartment. WIFI is excellent but the TV was not working for our stay.

Superb apartment and superb location
Superb apartment and superb location
We stayed in this large, very tastefully appointed, immaculate, and comfortable apartment for four full days and could not have been happier. Both bedrooms were large, with excellent large beds and dressers; the living room was quite large, as was the kitchen (with a balcony). We ended up not even using the separate dining room. The entire apartment is also very sunny. It also has a perfect location -- a short walk to the main town center or to public transportation to take you to other parts of the city. The price was perfectly reasonable. Both the off-site manager, Tiziana, and the on-site manager, Slawa, were incredibly responsive and friendly. SUMMARY: highest rating possible!

This place is large, beautiful, and the beds were sooooo comfortable and there were two pillows per person, which is a rare find in Europe! The pictures do not do it justice. There was internet and the location was perfect! It is about a 2 min walk to the main square and we were surrounded by shops, restaurants, etc. It's too loud to sleep with the windows open so it did get a little warm at night. I think the owners should put a fan in each room! The kitchen had a dish washer but wasn't working properly while we were there. The smell from the pipes in the kitchen and the large bathroom could be very strong at times while in that room, but not uncommon in older places. It wasn't bad enough to keep me from coming back however! Oh, the TV didn't work either. But we didn't need it. The woman who met us at the apartment is not the owner but an agent representing the company. She was the weakest link by far. We received a text from her asking when we would be there since she had been waiting since 4 and it was 4:45. I told them our arrival would be between 4 and 5. It just so happens we were parked in the street wondering how to get in. I had to ask twice for her to come down and open the main door for us, which took about 15 min! Turned out she was in a hurry to make a 5:00 mass. She didn't show us the internet, which my children found hiding behind the curtains, and when we asked her about parking, she sent us to the "most exclusive parking" in town at over 25 Euro a day! It took my husband over two hrs to find a place. I know it sounds impossible, but the parking is not clearly marked and just because you find a place doesn't mean you can park there. DO RESEARCH on the parking before you go! I emailed the company in the UK which got back to me quickly and they asked someone to come by and help us, which no one did! If you have the parking figured out before arrival and look behind the curtains for the internet code, then you're golden! We would definitely stay there again!

Lovely, very comfortable and well furnished apartment. The only negative was that there was no [even though advertised] Wifi available. Also it would have been nice to have tea/coffee/milk on arrival OR simply an idea where the nearest shop/supermarket is where these could be purchased.
