Editor's review

This is a lovely, spacious apartment opposite the celebrated Old Theatre. You'll be waking up to the prospect of the theatre's tremendous art nouveau facade each morning - a perfect way to kick off the day. The Main Market Square is just a three minute walk away, and several first class museums and galleries are located on the square below you. In short, you're onto a winner. The flat itself is on the second floor (European system!) of a typical Old Town kamienica (townhouse). Your home from home has 55 square metres, including a kitchen annex and a bathroom with shower. By coincidence, Roman Polanski's family used to live in the apartment for many years.

The floors were warped and rough. Like there was a fire or flood that destroyed them Never refinished. Bring slippers. The building is amazing. no blackout curtains.

Location, location, location! a tiny bit loud but it really was centrally located and I guess it would be silly to expect it to be super quiet:) I loved Krakow!

Dear Anna,

We arrived back in Cincinnati yesterday afternoon after a really great trip to Germany and Poland. Your assistance to Susan, Mike, and me while we were in Crakow, including arranging the laundry, was greatly appreciated.

Warmest personal regards,

The apartment was lovely. There were four of us and the location was ideal for all the sights. The flat was very quirky and and we loved the different art pieces on the wall. The only thing that would have made it even better are some thicker curtains as the rooms got very bright in the morning for night owls like us.

We had a lovely time in Krakow, the location couldn't be any better as the Square was just literally around the corner. The apartment was full of character and it really felt like home away from home. The service was excellent, we got the city map/ guide and lots of recommendations. Thank you, we will be back soon!

The perfect location - the main square was right next door and we felt like we were in the centre of it all! The apartment was nice too, comfortably slept four.

This apartment is just awesome. There is enough room for four and it's so much different from most ikea-furnished apartments I have stayed before. The location is great and staff were really helpful. We will recommend you to our friends.

What a sweet and artsy flat. The view was incredible and the price was right! Could use some better blankets though but it was warm while we visited so no worries!

My family and I stayed at this accommodation for four days and had a great experience. The location was superior; we were not only in the heart of the Old Town, the Square was just around the corner. Staff spoke very good English and were very friendly. We were more than happy with our time here and I would definitely stay here again!

Just returned from 4 night stay in Krakow Apartments-- Polanski. Great value for money. Huge room, very clean and freshly decorated. Very helpful staff offering airport pickups, trips and restaurant suggestions /reservations. Quiet location despite entrance shared with nightclub. Would definitely recommend."

A great-value apartment in a terrific location - what more could you want or need?!OK, some of the furniture, like us, was showing signs of age - on the positive side, the apartment was clean, spacious and ideally situated for exploring Krakow.Restaurants, bars and shops are right on your doorstep and the wonderful Market Square is literally minutes away. we were a party of five, so booked the Polanski and the Art, another apartment in the same building.

I can't believe I've slept in the same apt Polanski used to!! He's my idol!! They told me his room was the smaller one...

A lovely apartment. Good service from the hte people that run the apartment who arranged my taxi from the airport and gave me my keys. After that we were free to explore krakow from the very excellent location just by the main square. a wonderful experience

Great Apartment , we spent 3 days in the Polanski Apartment in early December and I nust say I was very positively surpriced. Spacious and clean apartment with great modern art on the walls. I arrived late (about midnight) and I was warm welcomed outside of the apartment. I got map and explanation about what to do in Karakow. I've had even chance to meet Przemek and Anna in the club during our stay. They showed me what the real Krakow is... Thank you for everything.

I don't normally bother to write reviews, but felt I had to. This is such a lovely little apartment, full of character and charming touches. We felt as if we were staying in a friend's flat and not some soulless hotel. Thanks to all the staff who were so kind and helped us with all our (probably annoying!) questions with such enthusiasm and style - well done to you! Everyhting we needed was sorted out for us, including a memorable and very moving trip to Auschwitz. We've already convinced some of our friends to come out to Krakow, and recommded this flat as the perfect place to stay. What a wonderful location in probably the prettiest city I have ever been to!

It was a lot of fun staying in this apartment, and getting to see Cracow close up. We enjoyed the city a lot, and having a nice clean place to stay (with character) made the whole trip most memorable. Highly recommended, if you can find available dates, as we gather the apartment gets booked up well in advance!

Very good location - the place was warm, clean and full of character. The furniture was tasteful, and thankfully not the sort of IKEA-inspired boring stuff you'd find in most hotels. At the end of our trip we felt we had actually stayed in and experienced POLAND, and much of that was due to the fact we had been based in this flat. If we'd stayed in some chain hotel we could have been anywhere...! Everything was well organised and airport pickups were arranged. We even arrived to find a small (but very welcome!) small bottle of wine awaiting us. Thank you for a super stay, and we'll be back.

This is so convenient for the heart of Cracow; literally a three minute walk to the market square. Even in the -25c. temperatures outside the apartment was warm and comfortable. Lots of original art on the walls. Kitchen is for preparing snacks only, but with all these cheap and good restaurants around, only a hermit would want to eat at home.

A gem of an apartment in an atmospheric, old building with, importantly, quiet neighbours.

Fantastic! And to think that Roman Polanski actually lived inthis apartment - great stuff! It was snowing while we were here, but the apartment had this old storage heating thing which was amazing - never seen anything like it! We'll be back and thanks to Przemek for all the help with the reservation - we really appreciate it!

Lovely apartment with character. Sebastian was able to help us out with lots of advice, and we were also able to organise a walking tour in the old town through him - thank you Nick! Thoroughly enjoyable time. Hope to be back for Christmas and see the Christmas Market on the Square!

Just gorgeous! Very light and open place to stay - we loved the flowers as well, and there were even a few beers in the fridge for us! The location could not have been better - right in the centre, but on a quiet square. Super!
