We love this area as it allows you to visit everywhere within Old Town and Kazimierz within 5-15 min walk.
There are quite a few buses & trams situated close to our home. Taxis are relatively inexpensive as well. We prefer to walk around the city and occasionally rent a bike for the day.

Great place in ideal Krakow location! Short walk to both the Old Town and the Jewish Quarter. Greta was extremely easy to deal with (as well as her on-site assistant Sylwia). They even helped arrange a ride to/from the airport for a reasonable fee. Apartment is very nice, with nice modern furniture/appliances/amenities. Highly recommended!
Greta's apartment is truly beautifull and the location is excellent. My husband and I stayed here for 10 days with two kids. Our 1-year old boy had lots of space to practice his walking, and he slept very well in the baby bed we were provided with. For a family of four, the fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms were very convenient.
Greta was extremely helpfull with our booking, even when I initially happened to book the wrong dates. Sylwia also helped and organise taxis from the airport that had seats for the baby.
Our only negative comment is the squeaky floors - which makes a lot of noice. We have been visiting Krakow very often, and this is the best accomodation we have experienced so far. We would love to stay here again.

Very modern, inviting place, close to the Jewish district and Old Town. She helped us organize an Auschwitz and Saltmine visit. Overall a great experience with fast Internet and all the amenities you need.
The place is really in the perfect location and is huge! The apartment is gorgeous and was super clean and nice. Sylwia was really really helpful, letting us check in at like 2am. Greta was very responsive and helpful with all our questions.
There's only two bad things I can say. One is that it's not exactly two bedrooms, more of a living room and bedroom. Which we didn't mind, except the floors really creak, and the bedroom is accessed through the living room. Which means that when the guests in the bedroom pass through the living room, it's quite disturbing.
The other thing is that it was a lot of stairs for my parents, who are on their late 60s. It's not a problem if you're young, but older folks might have trouble.
All in all it really is a great place and I highly recommend it. Thanks very much Sylwia and Greta!
Despite our short stay (only 2 nights) the apartment is absolutely stunning. It's clean (as the whole of Krakow is), lots of space and ideal located between the park, the beautiful old city and the Jewish quarter. The contact with Greta (online) and Sylwia (location) went smooth and Sylwia helped us out when we arrived with some addresses for breakfast and also secure parking, which is located near the apartment. For me personal I would love to visit Krakow again but the for a longer period, and yes: Greta’s apartment would be my first option for a place to stay.
Greta's apartment was perfectly located between Old Town and the Kazimierz. Instead of sharing a small bed, the large couches served as perfect beds for two teenage boys. Sylwia, Greta's housemanager, was extremely helpful with our arrival and departure. The apartment was very clean and overall proved to be excellent accommodations.
We had a fantastic time in Krakow at Greta's apartment. It was lovely, spotlessly clean and was in a perfect location... walking distance to the Jewish Quarter, Old Town, Wawel Castle and the Main Square. The apartment had everything we needed. Greta and Sylwia were also extremely helpful (e.g. organising airport taxis and storing our luggage). I would highly recommend this apartment.
