The apartment is in a lovely 19th century building and provides an authentic Krakow experience. In fact, it's the best location to explore the city, within walking distance to all major attractions and also the chicest and most sought after area to live in, with good reason. There's also a fireplace, hammock and balcony at your disposal:-)
A spacious 56 metre squared, light and airy apartment with 4 large windows (great in summer, essential for light in winter), a fireplace and a balcony on the first floor of a late 19th Century townhouse. If you're not into the over-commercialism of mass tourism, over-priced restaurants and the general package holiday experience, then this is definitely the apartment and area for you! The apartment has all necessary facilities for a wonderful stay including a fireplace for romantic evenings,a hammock and a balcony.
Zugang für Gäste
Free wi fi, fireplace (in the winter), hammock, dishwasher, washing machine, bath and shower, hairdryer, toilet, oven, hob, balcony. Fresh towels and bedding.
Interaktion mit Gästen
I bought the apartment in 2012 intending to settle here for good but then my girlfriend got a job in Warsaw and we moved there in 2014. I manage the apartment from Warsaw while two young and friendly neighbours (who live in the same building)can deal with any on-hand issues you may have. It's worth noting that the apartment is a genuine home and not a made-for-tourism investment.
Weitere wichtige Infos
The flat can sleep up to 4 people. There is one real bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room. The bedroom is separated from the living room by a partition wall so if you do have more than two guests, privacy between rooms is not total but perfectly comfortable.
One of the best restaurants in town is just around the corner and offers discounts for my guests.
I also cooperate with a couple of Krakow's best established tour companies (5-stars on Tripadvisor) who organise guided tours to Auschwitz and Wieliczka salt mine via minibus that picks you up at the front door of the apartment. I can also organise a discount rate on bicycle hire and bike and Segway tours or pretty much any type of tour you'd like to do in and around Krakow including shooting ranges with AK-47's etc, tours of Nowa Huta, the Stalinist-era communist city just outside Krakow, based on a design by Leonardo Da Vinci. Please just contact me about anything in advance and/or see the short guide I email you when you book.
We put a lot of love into making the apartment special. The "rule" is to enjoy it as much as we do! One thing, please don't open the top part of the windows only the lower part. My cleaning lady is too small to reach the upper windows to close them again:-)
