Hall
Our hall does not fall under the category of wasted space, a linking passage between the rooms but constitutes an integral and unique part of the apartment and thus is a room in itself. On entering the apartment’s wide hall, a curved wall encouragingly sucks you into a comfortable table area designed to mark the beginning of a an ever-present sitting room.

Sitting room
Air-conditioned, South-facing, spacious room highlighted by strikingly large French window exposing an enormous garden/terrace blending with the sitting room and thus highlighting the presence of the ever-present space. With access to our private garden/terrace, the location of the leisure part can be shifted outdoors or indoors, according to our guests’ needs or pleasures.
If you choose lazing on the garden/terrace on a hot summer day, the nearby trees housing birds you can hear at dawn will naturally subdue the blaze of scorching sun making it a pleasure to goof off in their shade. If you feel like an evening barbecue, the very same garden will be a perfect breeding ground for socializing. As for the indoors, you will be mesmerized by a combination of Spanish vanilla-colored tiles, bamboo flooring or and Indian stone embedded in the wall, which all give the room a feeling of overwhelming brightness with a touch of exotism - Should you want to skip an evening in the old town, open your huge double pull-out bed and specially designed lighting system will calm you down accompanying your choice of CD or DVD collections

South-facing Kitchen
Comfort and pleasant atmosphere in one. Air-conditioned, spacious, with room for cooking and dining, with a large window overlooking our garden/terrace. Orientation of devices and all appliances was not left to coincidence but was carefully planned so that the morning breakfast does not require a lot of walking. The kitchen is visually clean as all tiny appliances are out of sight but ready for use – It’s enough to lift a sliding cover to realize that

short area description
If your surfing brought you to this site, I assume Old Krakow (Cracow) has found you ! Maybe it has lured you because you are an art & culture aficionado or simply a casual traveler willing to experience Krakow's legendary atmosphere. Like millions of other visitors, you will find yourself hanging out either just soaking it all up or to watch outdoor events happening on a daily basis in the largest in Europe market square. One thing is sure - your pace will slow down! This fast developing but still exotic old town enchants its visitors offering restaurants, bars, cafes, a castle, museums, night-life. Krakow is only 20 minutes from Wieliczka (worldwide unique salt mines), 30 minutes from National Ojcowski Park, 90 minutes from Oswiecim (Aushwitz) and 2 hours from the Tatra mountains (hiking, skiing).
Our apartment is located 2 minutes’ walk from 24 h grocery shop, 1 minute from the hospital and the drugstore, within 4 minutes walk from a vegetable market and a bus/tram stop and is within walking distance to virtually everything one may want to have, see, experience, including undoubtedly most unique in their character pubs in the world :).

Summary:

Air-conditioned apartment with basement car park in the center with all windows overlooking a secluded private 80sq meters garden.

A comfortable well appointed modern appartment a 15 minute walk, or 2 tram stops from the old town. A 24hr shop is at the end of the street - So it's easy to nip out for milk or bread. Slightly further in the opposite direction there is a main tram stop, cash machines, and the Novy Klepartz market. The staff were friendly and helpfull. Although checkout is at 11am, they let us leave our luggage at the apartment, and even made us a cup of tea while we waited for a taxi.

Apartment was a bit further out than we anticipated though taxis are dirt cheap, ones with meters are best to use.
Owner reply:

to be more specific, the apartment is 12 minute's walk from the oldest part of Krakow and 3 minutes more to the market square.

Thanks, Pawel! We had a great time in Krakow. The apartment was great - very roomy and comfortable and well laid out. Very quiet too, and in a lovely neighbourhood. Great 24/7 shop on the corner and fabulous market for fresh fruit and bread every day. A Carrefour express is about to open so that will increase the local shopping choices too. A 10 minute walk into town, or cheap taxis available at rank round the corner. We used the meet and greet service at the airport and would recommend it - its great to arrive and be whisked away to your apartment and settled in! Great service. Pawel is on hand to answer your questions - thanks again!
Review IralandThe location of the apartment is absolutely perfect - around 10 minutes' walk into the old town, or if you can't be bothered to walk, you have a major tram station just around the corner. Just up the street there is a 24hour shop, though we did most of our shopping at the local market at Nowy Kleparz, which is also just around the corner. So, every morning we bought fresh blueberries, wild strawberries, raspberries and kefir for our breakfast...delicious! The other advantage of the location is its safety. We came with our 3 teenagers (used to cows, not cars!), and we could let them walk back to the apartment by themselves at 10pm without any worry whatsoever.The apartment itself is very comfortable and beautifully designed - our kids' response was "Wow, I want to have a flat like that when I move out!" (fat chance, say we). It's a perfect base from which to enjoy Kraków, and we certainly did!Sabine&John (Ireland)
REVIEWS CANADAHi Pawel,We arrived home safe and sound without a hitch. It was a very successful trip all around from Poznan to Warsaw and then to Krakow. We were lucky to have one day in Berlin and a few days in England as well. All in all very enjoyable. Pawel, I would like to thank you for the use of your lovely home. You made us very welcome and helped us a lot in pointing out what to see and to look for. Your home is lovely and we felt like we were in a "home away from home"!I will send the few pictures I took of you and your family when I get them developed. I'm sure not as good as yours! Please give my best wishes to your wife and your darling little boy and of course yourself. Best regards,Pat Eveleigh
Rreview MaltaOur one week stay in Krakow was a great experience. It was the first time any of us had been to Poland, so naturally when we arrived at the airport we were all wondering about what kind of challenges were ahead of us. We had booked accommodation with Pawel, who had offered to pick us up from the airport, and as soon as we stepped out of the airport he was there as promised. Once we arrived at the apartment, Pawel spent around an hour with us. He showed us around the flat and gave us some important tips about places to eat, bars, places of interest and information regarding buses/trams and taxis - thanks to Pawel’s impressive command of English, everything was very smooth and pleasant. The apartment is very sweet and as according to what is shown on the website. It is well equipped with all kitchen facilities, central heating and a washing machine, stereo. The location is very good - it is a short walk from the old town center, and 5 minutes away from a tram/bus stop. Once there it is very easy to orientate yourself, and if there was any problem, Pawel was always happy to help us. There is also a 24-hour grocery store two doors away from the flat which was quite convenient. The area was also very safe and we did not come across any problems. We would recommend this flat to any group/family wanting to visit Krakow as it provides a cheaper alternative as to hotels while still offering highest comfort. We would all like to thank Pawel and his wife for all their help and most of all for making us feel welcome. Regards,Alex
REVIEWS MALTA We spent 7 nights is Krakow and it was great! Remember to visit neighboring Zakopane City if you like the snow and ski. About the apartment it is amazing.. first of all it is very cozy. It is fully heated and really equipped with all the stuff you really need. The apartment is also very secure. It is situated in a very good place.. few steps away from a 24hr grocer.. and a walking distance from the main square. But above all the owner of this worth it! apartment is Pawel. He is a very intelligent and helpful guy. I really mean it.. Cause in the last minute.. one of my friends could not find his passport and he made his best to help us which involved many phone calls, bureaucracy necessary to leave a country without a passport. If it were not Pawel.. my friend would probably have to stay in Krakow canceling his flight doing what he could to solve his problem. Trust him! Pawel speaks English.. and will give you many tips where to go and what to do.. Go for it!.. I and my friends would really like to thank you for the help you gave us.! Thanks Again.. if one day you should decide to come to Malta or better Gozo (our island) we would certainly take care of you! Consider it! Jeffrey (Malta).
REVIEW USAPawel and his family were extremely helpful regarding information about Krakow and the surrounding areas: from tips on the hottest nightlife spots to the right taxi to take from the airport and the train station (including telephone numbers for transportation with English speaking operators). In addition, he let us know about several current events, such as festivals and the like, in and around Krakow. The apartment itself is extremely modern; the kitchen is well-equipped and there is plenty of space for a group of people (we were four, but it is large enough for eight) to enjoy it in comfort. Another plus is its location: just a short walk from the old city. We fully enjoyed our stay in Krakow and plan to return sometime in the future. When we do, we will definitely be sure to contact Pawel again.Shane Lusher
