About this listing
Welcome ! Swan's Nest is a newly decorated Studio perfectly located just minutes away from Warsaw's historic Old Town. It's perfect for two but the sofa bed means 3 or even 4 of you could stay comfortably with a separate kitchen and bathroom.
Swan's Nest is named after the Swan Building it's located in and we've tried to add a few touches reflecting this to the decor.
After painting everything from top to bottom and giving the place a big clean we started with a really comfortable double bed, added a sofa and everything else we could think of to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
There's a DVD, some films ( including a Sopranos box set ), wifi, maps, a washing machine, a full kitchen with a table, tea, coffee, a bathroom with a shower and a tub for anyone wanting a long soak after a day's sightseeing.
So have we missed anything ? Just ask !
You'll also get 20% discount off food and drink bills at a nearby pub.
Interaction with Guests
I've helped host other AirBnB apartments and I'm really looking forward to welcoming new Guests at my own Swan's Nest ! I'll be there to welcome you and always reachable if you need help, have any questions or just some tips where to eat or drink.
Something about Mariensztat...
i love the square - it's seldom busy but situated right next to Warsaw Old Town and has a very local character. You'll find a little shop, a chemist, a pub, a Chinese restaurant and ... just us locals !
And most of all I think it's one of Warsaw's prettiest spots in the summer, sitting by the fountain or enjoying a coffee or beer enjoying the view.
Just a few minutes walk and you are in the centre of historic Warsaw with almost every other site or museum just a walk or bus ride away.
Mariensztat itself is a neighbourhood in Warsaw's borough of Śródmieście (city centre). It is located between the Vistula river and the Old Town. The historical neighbourhood dates from the 18th century, when local nobleman Eustachy Potocki married Maria Kątska and received the parcel of land as part of Kątska's dowry. He established a jurydyka and named the town Maryenstadt after his wife, adding the German suffix stadt to please the Saxon king of Poland. After World War II, the spelling was changed to Mariensztat, but this did not change the pronunciation.The neighbourhood was razed to the ground during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Reconstruction work began in 1948, involving a complete redesign of the street plan and architectural appearance of the area. Mariensztat became a model housing project under Poland's new communist authorities, and was the first part of the city to be completed in their ongoing reconstruction of Warsaw.
Mariensztat Square is reachable by bus, tram and taxi. Warsaw Central train station is a short bus ride away and we can pick you up from Warsaw Powisle station if you are coming from Chopin Airport.
Treat Swan's Nest just as you would your own place and please don't smoke !
