Our place is close to public transport, literally next to the main train and bus stations! Short walking distance to Cracow's historic Old Town centre & on to the Jewish district. The room overlooks a leafy green park.
You’ll love our place because it is the former family home of an aristocratic and artistic family - who left all their grand furniture, piano and books behind - the apartment is beautiful and full of history!
Our room is good for couples, solo adventurers and business travellers.
Being in this flat is a little like living in a museum... With the benefit that you can touch and explore everything! This is the former family home of a Kraków theatre director (now our landlord), who has left everything behind in the flat. We live amongst beautiful, solid-wooden furniture, on the shelf are books printed as far back as 1870s, the kitchen cupboard is full of antique china (for everyday use) and in the room where you'll sleep hangs a print given as a wedding gift in 1905! There is always something new to stubble upon in this flat.
You'll sleep in the best room in the house. Very spacious with high ceiling and wooden floors. The window looks over a leafy park and lets the afternoon sun shine in right over your bed. We have a desk you can work at, which also lets you look over the park. There is a wardrobe with hangers and two top chest of draws available for you to use. You'll also find some maps and brochures in your room, that can help you plan your days in Kraków.
Disponible para huéspedes
You will have a private bedroom which enters onto the shared lounge and kitchen. Kitchen is with dishwasher, however antique china must be hand-washed. The bathroom is shared: toilet, bath/shower and washing machine in one room.
Atención a los huéspedes
You'll be meeting my housemates often in the shared kitchen etc. So feel free to ask us any questions you may have. Magda, Żosia, Aga and Maruszka have lived many years in Kraków and know this city well - so do pick their brains about the best cafes around! We are very excited to meet people from different places and learn about their cultures.
Otros aspectos destacables
Being close to the main station means that the street outside can be quite noisy, even late into the night. There will be earplugs provided in the room, for light sleepers or those sensitive to noise.
Being an old flat, there is a quirky set up in the bathroom, in that the bathtub double as the bathroom sink - so that's the place to wash your hands and brush your teeth. Please know, there is no standing shower and you will need to sit in the bath to wash your upper body (or feel free to take a hot bath :) )
- Please be respectful of common areas: kitchen, bathroom and lounge room
- Noise travels in our old home, so please keep it low-volume after 11pm :)
- You are welcome to use the antique china in the house, but it's fragile so cannot go in the dishwasher and must be washed by hand.
