About This Listing
For me it is all about carrying for my guests and make sure they have comfortable place to relax after a long city day. This three room space fits up to 6 people. Public transport is walk away as well as all kinds of bistros and restaurants.
Sometimes I would like to rent this apartment for myself, just to discover my city once again.
This part of Warsaw is an official downtown, hotest spot for living and dining. You have fancy boutiques, coffee places and restaurants on every corner together with regular shops and groceries. It is the best part of the town there is no doubts. You will be spending your time among regular Varsavians and if you want to get to the main tourist districts its 2 stops by bus, tram or subway. All within 5min walk.
Apartment has three separate rooms, comfortable beds, cabinets, nice appliance will make your stay stress free. I put a bit effort in Polish accents so you will find several albums, some reading and domestic artists work on the wall.
Nice bathroom with washing-machine and stand-in shower.
Two big closets are the good place to keep your things and put suitcases out of sight.
All the rooms are spacious and sunny with big windows coming out on a street and at the backyard.
During student year I host mostly students from Erasmus program I had guests from Germany, France, Spain and US, I like this diversity. Feel free to address me with your request from all parts of the World.
In the airbnb guide I have indicated some of my favorite spots in the area.
I will be happy to guide you through, have a walk around, show you closest parks and galleries or recommend an attraction like a classical music concert in a nearby palace. New places are opening up like daisies on the meadow so there is this new Italian spot with bio ice creams, Warsaw - burgers including vege with goat chees, mexican, sushi and endless coffee places. Recently opened french bakery, all 100 steps away from your place!
From September on the apartment is exclusively reserved for longer terms booking so please don't check the availability if you are longer term tenant just contact me directly with your inquiry.
My guests have the apartment all for themselves. So there is no limitation on what the guest has access too. Apartment is prepared to be a hotel service, there are no private cabinets or belongings. The goal is to everybody feel comfortable for the whole stay.
Interaction with Guests
I'm very carrying for my guests although I'm there just to provide them with comfortable space, of course you can hear some tips from me but as Im the person who likes to be on her own I also leave this sense of freedom to my guests.
Well, the neighborhood is hot. It is called Mokotow district, it is situated just next to the strict center but is a residential area, with lots of bars and coffees as well as designer shops. People leaving here has this cool approach of being very local, hanging on the same playgrounds with their children and in the same coffee places every day.
When you leave the apartment and turn left into the street you will reach Pulawska, the Warsaw main street. Buses and trams stops are around 200m away. If you go right at the end of the street you reach metro station. If you decide to take cab you reach the apartment from main Warsaw spots within 7Euro fare. And it is so close to so many things you can just take a walk through the main districts or through the parks.
The whole apartment is for yourself, you can use it however you want until it fulfills descent social habits. It is an apartment based in a regular inhabited building. So please respect the neighbors they are very nice people. There is not much space to park but apartment has its own reserved spot. There is an intercom to the main gate and to the building. You receive the intercom code upon your arrival. There is a cupboard place above coffee table with wi-fi password, small manual and basic places around. And what most important you will receive my mobile phone number there where your concerns ends cause I most likely solve them instantly. Smoking in the apartment is strictly prohibited.
From Sep 1 - Nov 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 25 nights.
Our host met with us and gave us thorough introduction to the apartment. We felt very welcome upon arrival. The apartment is spacious and airy, high ceilings and large rooms. It is situated in a highly desirable residential area, with many conveniences nearby (at least three markets within a two block radius, a couple of bakeries, a drugstore...). Plus many small restaurants and cafés have recently sprung up in the neighborhood. Even a small vegetable stand was set up from a truck just a few steps away from the apartment building. When you turn left when exiting the building, you will reach Pulawska St., which is a busier thoroughfare, with the shopping conveniences mentioned earlier, as well as trams and buses to downtown. If you turn to the right from the building, the long blocks are pleasant, green, and residential, and two to three blocks further is the subway. Access to downtown is easy and hassle free, with many options. It was a pleasure to come "home" after a long day of sightseeing; the street becomes quiet at night and one of the bedrooms faces the courtyard. We had a great time, and recommend this listing to anyone who wants the typical Warsaw experience, away from crowds of tourists, but nevertheless conveniently located within easy access to desirable tourist spots, just a short bus/tram ride away.
Alexandra is a great host and was willing to go an extra mile to meet our specific needs. However, apartment does look a little bit worn out compared to the pictures. Location, transportation options and neighbourhood in general are decent. Overall: worth reccomending
Aleksandra is a great host. When we arrived she showed us the street and shops around. The flat is clean, there was everything we needed ( towels, sheets, soap, etc). It was a confortable expérience , go there if you want to visit varsaw!
My friends and I had a great visit to Warsaw, there is so much to see and do (we didn't get it all done). The area the apartment was in was nice and quiet and full of restaurants and cafes as described and it is only a short trip on the tram to the city center. Aleksandra was a great host and when we had a couple of issues in the apartment she addressed them straight away, and when we asked her any questions or to book us a taxi it was not a problem and was done straight away.
The apartment was lovely but we were initially a bit disappointed as the decor is now a bit dated (it was obviously fresh and new in the pictures) it would be so much better if the place was freshened up with some paint and some things like small tables replaced as they are damaged and the sofas are worn and a little grubby, it looks tired! but saying that we had a great time but just don't expect the same freshness as in the photos.
Appartement très agréable pour cinq personnes, très bien situé dans Varsovie à seulement quelques mètres d'un arrêt de tram, d'une épicerie et d'une des rue principales de Varsovie. Quartier calme et agréable, appartement à recommander !!
Very nice apartment in a lively neighborhood.Fully equipped and with very convenient transport. We did not have the chance to meet Aleksandra but we spoke on the phone.She was always very helpful and friendly.
Comfortable relaxed and cosy apartment. Ideal for a group of 5 if you don't mind sharing the kitchen as a communal space (big enough for breakfasts and late night drinks). Big rooms so everyone gets their share of space. Location is very good - about 5 tram stops to the CBD and there are a lot of fun bars, cafés and restaurants around. Great host who can be relied on. Only minor issue is a bit of noise from the street side from people passing by and chatting - only applicable if you keep your windows open (if it's hot). Overall, Great value for money!

About the Host, Aleksandra
We're a couple in our 40s, having kids living in Warsaw suburbs. We work with passion in film and air industry we have hobbies (either though there is no time), we enjoy our kids and hopefully they do too. In the meantime we're having this lovely apartment downtown. We're keen to help visitors to find their way around Warsaw either in business or sightseeing.
Just in front of your door, Italian place, nothing exclusive but quick lunch including pasta of your choice and a salad for 6euro is what Im going for.Warszawa 02-560
Relaks cafe yet another very local place, some coming in and out just to grab their take away coffee, other prefer to stay a bit longer using wi-fi to do some work. Great tea selection.Puławska Warsaw Mazowieckie 01-001
One of those cool places, more like a club with descent food. Good for lunches and evening get away.Puławska Warszawa Mazowieckie
They say (those who ate it not those who made it) those are burgers to die for. I think you die anyway according to health associations but common its only a burger.Olkuska Warsaw Masovian Voivodeship 00-999
Run for years by our friends, either breakfast or lunch, early dinner would also do. Great selection of English books and albums. Occasionally exhibition of local artist.Kwiatowa Warszawa Mazowieckie 02-001
The closest art gallery, worth seeing especially that it is not meant for tourist. Amazing palace in the park. On the top of the hill from which a panorama of Warsaw towards the river can be seen.Puławska Warsaw Masovian Voivodeship
