Several years ago, my partner and I remodelled an old apartment in Krakow and it's absolutely beautiful now as well as a fantastic investment financially. However, unfortunately, I cant recommend a contractor as although ours did a good job... it was when he got around to it and simple things that should have taken 2 days took 2 months just because he would suddenly become 'busy' and it was always always that he would finish this or that 'tomorrow', which never happened. There are still a lot of little things around our apartment which never got finished. Which 3 years later he still says 'tomorrow' about. I think this is quite a classic experience with a contractor in just about any country and I would suggest that you be prepared to grill your potential contractor and make sure you get real promises of dates and time frames. ...Or if you're not in a hurry anyway just be prepared to be very very patient with the work being done. ALso it can be a lot of fun to do it yourself! Sorry i can't recommend our contractor, however we did have a rather excellent carpenter who designed our wooden staircase, if youre interested.

Thank you for your reply. Are you able to get consistent renters? Did you go to a property management company to manage the apartment, renting, maintenance,legal lease agreements..etc? Any information is helpful. Thank you, Terri

Hi Terri, we have just had our kitchen in Krakow completely redone and they did a super job. If you want me to refer to the people who did the work, please let me know and I'll be happy to do so.

HI Mark, Yes, if you could provide their names that would be great. I am looking to do the bathroom as well. Do they do bathroom too? Dzienkuje! Terri
