CRACOVIA 2

Krakow Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 apartments (4 bedrooms), sleep up to 13, city centre, 2 bathrooms, internet .

Our two beautiful apartments are located on the first floor in a 1900 century Cracovian town house.Most our guests rent the apartments separately - they are completely self contained. Therefore if you are looking for just one apartment you can, of course, rent just one - Cracovia 1 can sleeps up to 7 people, Cracovia 2 up to 6 people .However , if you are looking for super spacious apartment ( sleeping up to 13 people) why not rent them both? Cracovia 1 and Cracovia 2 are devided by a common, private hall which is NOT a part of any of the apartments. When combined they will create one wonderfully specious and comfortable apartment. As our guests we have had groups of friends or 2 families travelling together. The apartments are full of light thanks to large, double glazed windows in every room. They are warm in winter thanks to the central heating and cool in summer thanks to old, thick walls that prevent the heat from outside get through.The location is perfect; walking distance to the Main Square, all the commodities also a short walk away. Peaceful, residential street. Renovated to a high standard with parquet flooring, high ceiling, a ceramic stove. Contemporary graphic art and a mix of classic pre-war and modern furniture and lighting, ensure comfort with plenty of local character and charm.

We took special care that all beds have a bed side lamp with light brights enough for reading - often it is a problem in rented accommodation.We hate it when it happens to us on our travel so we make sure our guests don't have this problem either!

Modern, fully equipped kitchens, central heating, satellite TV, DVD player, a cot or a high chair can be provided. Internet access , WiFi ( wireless up to 5 devices)

Good reasons to book our apartment:: Our apartment, which we visit regularly with our children, has a unique location: Old Town is the heart of Krakow, that's where you want to be and yet in our apartments you will be away from the noisy city centre. From here you can walk to all tourist attractions. The Main Square is a leisurely 10-15 min walk. Wawel Castle is a short tram ride away and the tram stop is round the corner from our street. Public transport is inexpensive in Poland.

We always try to ensure that you have a fantastic time in Krakow and we will always be happy to answer all your email enquiries - all you need to do is ask.

You will be met at the apartment by our very friendly representative (who speaks several languages). He will show you round the apartment and explain how things work and recommend restaurants or places to visit if you wish to. We will also send you our personal recommendation of places to eat and see in Krakow. If travel with children - we can recommend places that your children will find attractive.

If you wish to travel to Auschwitz or visit a World Heritage salt mines in Wieliczka - we can help you organize your trip, too.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We found this apartment using holiday-rentals.co.uk and contacted the owner, Beata. Despite being a Sunday evening she immediately contacted us with the details and pricing. From that moment on she went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed both Krakow and the accommodation.

We had a fabulous time! The apartment is fantastically situated and a very short walk from the Old Town, as well as tram stop for further explorations. Everything you could possibly need for exploring the area is within easy reach, as are an assortment of bars, restaurants etc. We had no idea what to expect on our first trip to Krakow, however we will certainly be returning and we would definitely contact Beata first.

I grew up in Krakow in an old, beautiful apartment. We rented it, like most Poles, from the state. Sadly my family was not able to buy the property after the communist regime collapsed. In the late 80's, having completed my studies at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, I moved to London. Andrew, my husband, is an interior designer, I used to teach here and for some years I worked in BBC radio. We have 3 children now who take up most of my time. When they get a bit bigger I plan to get back to teaching.

We've always wanted to have a place of our own in Krakow , where we could stay while visiting my Polish family.

When I inherited some money from my grandparents - our dream came true. We love to come here and we do as often as we can. We are never bored here - there are things to do for adults and kids alike. My favourite pastime ( when the weather is good!) is sitting in a cafe on the Main Square, soaking up the sun while sipping a cuppucino. I also like going to concerts, exhibitions and new galleries that mushroom in Krakow every year. And that you can do in any weather!

Beata purchased this apartment in 2006

We decided to buy this particular apartment because of its very fantastic location. We wanted to have an apartment near the Market Square but not actually on it. It can be very noisy on the Market Square with all the tourists staying up until early hours.

Our street is very peaceful and yet only 10-15 ( max!) walk from the Market Square. There is a 24 hrs well stocked supermarket just round the corner. There are bakeries and cafes 2 min walk from the apartment.When we are tired after the whole day of activities and we don't fancy walking home - we hope on a tram. The tram stop is 2 min walk from the apartments.

Our apartments offer great comfort and space! They are our second homes and when we come here we often bring our friends. Therefore we have taken great care to make them feel cosy and welcoming.

They are at a perfect location - all our previous guests who have sent us feedback - loved the proximity to Karkow's main attractions and yet be away from the crowds when you want to.

The greatest attraction for bigger groups is the ability to combine both apatments into a single, super large apartment .

A?? EXCELLENT APARTMENT. WOULD RECOMMEND

  • 5 of 5
Just stayed Thursday to Sunday. I booked both apartments as we had aparty of 8 travelling. Can only say great things about them. Great location, a short walk from the main sq and has everything like shops, bars, restaurants around it.
The apartments themselves were excellent. Big, comfy, everything you need, plenty of rooms and beds for everyone to spread out so no arguments
The owner and her representative Andrzej couldn't be more helpful and I had a lot of contact before travelling asking for advice and they also booked our party a airport transfer and also booked a taxi to take us to Auschwitz for the day.
I will definaitley recomend Krakow and these apartment to friends and family.

EXCELLENT VALUE

  • 4 of 5
Our party of three (My wife and myself and my 81 year old sister) arrived in Krakow for a nine day stay after visiting Warsaw. Beata had arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport which was most appreciated. We were met at the building door by the building manager and shown to Apartment 2 which is smaller than Apartment 1 but the two bedrooms, living room and kitchen were totally adequate for our needs. The most welcome features were the close proximity to the grocery store (2 minute walk) and to the Market Square (10 minute walk) loaded with shops which my wife and sister were most happy to assist the local economy. The restaurants to/from our walks to Market Square were excellent. There was a list of places that prior guests had eaten at and I think we tried most of them. My favorite was Mamma Mia's whcih for Italian cuisine could not be topped. The food and wine selection were more than adequate and very reasonably priced. (As I recall dinner for the three of us, including wine, was less than $40 US. )
We purchased some refreshments at the local markets and enjoyed just sitting back, kicking our shoes off, and taking it easy with a good book on several evenings.
During the first few days in Krakow we had the pleasure of having Beata staying in Apartment 1 while she was visting Krakow. This was most appreceiated as she was able to personally handle the repair of a fan in the bathroom which freed us up to go shopping, continue to eat too much, (The restaurants are once again to be appreciated.), and enjoy the walking around the area.
Having the police station accross the street provided a nice sense of security although with the friendliness of the Polish people it wasn't needed.
Would definitely recommend it for anyone that wanted an excellent place to stay that was economical and close to the Market Square. We did not have a car and one was not needed as almost everything we wanted to see was within walking distance. We took tours to the salt mine and to see the Black Madonna where the guide provided transportation.

PERFECT APARTMENT IN KRAKOW

  • 5 of 5
Dear Beata
Just to let you know we had a fabulous time in Krakow - your apartment was brilliant for us and a great location. Everyone was very friendly and Krakow is a beautiful city, we had a good time walking around the old bit and the jewish quarter, a bit of shopping, lovely meals and lots of drinking and dancing til 3am! We went to Auschwitz which was very moving, sad but important. Also went to the salt mine on Sunday morning - amazing!
Thank you for letting us use your apartment - we will be highly recommending it and a visit to krakow to our friends.
With best wishes
John and Maria-Teresa.

FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
When I booked the apartment I was really impressed with the information I received from the owner. The owner (Beata) arranged for a taxi for us and he was there waiting when we arrived. The taxi driver was very friendly, spoke perfect English and gave us some good tips on where to eat. We were met at the apartment by the agent and she was so helpful. The agent gave us lots of advice, where to go, where to eat etc.
The apartment was everything we could have wished for, well furnished and so clean. The apartment is well situated with only a short walk to the main square passing lots of restaurants. There is a tram but we enjoyed the short walk. Karakow was lovely and very reasonable to eat and drink.
Will return next year and stay here.

Owner's Response: Dear Paul, thank you for the glowing review! It is always so good to hear that the efforts ( both mine and of my representative in Krakow ) to make our guests happy are paying off. To prove it we have an increasing number of returning visitors.
I was so pleased that you mentioned in your feedback the short distance from our apartments to the Main Square ; first time visitors to Krakow will find it reassuring that you really don't have to stay on the Main Square to be in the centre of Krakow. Main Square is often too noisy, both during the day and at night. The Old Town - where we have our two apartments - is also the centre of Krakow- architecturally and culturally. If you wish you can take a tram (tram stop is just round the corner) to take you directly to Wawel and the former Jewish Quarter -Kazimierz.
If you are planning organized tours nearby Krakow - a car, a taxi or a van can park right outside our apartments to pick you up - around the Main Square it is pedestrian only zone.
Paul, thanks again for your comments. Hope to have you as our guests again very soon!

Our apartments are located in a quiet, residential street in the centre of Old Town in Krakow. On the way to the Market Square you will find an array of restaurants, cafes, bars and boutiques. You do not need a car in Krakow - you can get everywhere on foot or by tram. Market Square is about 10 min walk away from the apartment.

Wawel Castle and the famous Jewish Quarter - Kazimierz- are a short tram ride away. The tram stop is just round the corner on Karmelicka street. In Kazimierz you will be also spoilt for choice with all the sights, restaurants, bars and nightlife. Kazimierz is one of the favourite destinations for locals and visitors alike.

You can do all your food & drink shopping locally.

Just around the corner, there's a supermarket, called Kefirek, opened 24hrs; you can buy all the necessary ingredients for a meal at home if you don't feeling like going out.

If you plan to visit Aushwitz or go to see a famous salt mine in Wieliczka, we will be happy to help you organize your transport or advise you how to get there by yourself.

Ski: One of the most often visited places to go for skiing nearby Krakow is Zakopane. There is a good selection of ski slopes there for all levels of skiers.

Our biggest discovery was a ski slope 20 min away from Krakow called Podstolice, near Wieliczka. The slope is for beginners/ intermediate skiers. There is a ski hire and a restaurant just next to the slope.
