Something about Marensztat...
We 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 we 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 (email hidden)e 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.
Everything is easy on foot or by bus. We will send you transfer instructions when you book.
Other Things to Note

We will be there to meet you and will try to explain everything and wev will also send you a house manual with some more information about everything after you have booked. We have a good relationship with our neighbours so please respect the 'cisza nocna' between 10pm and 6am ( be a bit quieter basically ). Anything you find in the fridge or cupboards is there for you as well and the dvds or books are there for your entertainment ( but leave them behind for the next guests please ! )
Le studio est bien localisé, pas loin du vieux ville de Varsovie, tramway et bus à 5 minutes à pied. Seul bémol, le wifi ne fonctionne pas très bien. Mais bon, on n'est pas là pour passer des heures sur internet non plus. Jan est disponible et accueillant. Le studio était bien propre et il ne manquait rien. Merci beaucoup.
We were very well welcome by Jan who was waiting us in the flat .The apartment was very clean , and comfortable and is very near of the old town . So it was really easy to go and visit the old town and even to go elsewhere in Warsow and our host had prepared for us cold water, milk , cookies , coffe, tea , cereals , ...We had advices and services .Really extra .
Jan is a great host. He help us a lot during our stay, was easy to reach and gave us good tips about the city. The apartment is comfortable and the location couldn't be better for us (5 min walk from the old town, pharmacy, grocery, ...) and close to main buses routes to go to airport, Wilanow and Lazienki park. We were there for almost 2 weeks and really enjoyed our stay. Thanks!
Jan was kind enough to meet us at the airport, despite the fact that the flight was late at night. On the way to the apartment, he told us about Warsaw and said to contact him on any issue. The apartment is very warm, cozy and comfortable. The apartment is in 5-8 minute walk from the heart of Warsaw, in a very quiet place. We lived in an apartment 5 days, we had everything we needed. Our baby slept very well and every morning we went for a walk in the small park next to the house.
We had a brilliant weekend in Warsaw and the swan apartment was the perfect base. It is in a really central location. It is a compact apartment but has everything you need. Jan was so helpful and arranged taxis for us to get around Warsaw and provided us with helpful local info. Would highly recommend! Thank you very much!
The biggest advantage of the flat was the localisation. Near to the City Center, near to the Kopernik Center. But inside the flat there were no seperate bedrooms (they were no doors between them) and we had ants in the kitchen and bathroom. It was also cold, because the heating was off when we came there. The host was very flexible in terms of check in and check out.
Sorry you did enjoy your stay Aleksandra, we do not advertise Swan apartment as having two separate bedrooms - perhaps it is a bad translation and the ants in February caught us all by surprise - we will get rid of them soonest ! Heating is a question of choice, our last guest preferred it low and it could have been turned up - you should have asked I would have come round or explained how to do it.

About the Host, Jan
Hi my name is Jan , I manage the apartments with my partner Alicja who does most of the managing if I'm honest so it's her that keeps everything spick and span. I do things like meeting and talking our Guests who come from all over the world and giving them the benefit of my 'Warsaw knowledge' ( I've lived here 20 years ) ....but you'll meet us both hopefully !
My English is still good and I will try to answer any questions you may have, not just about the apartment but about things like getting around, places to see, places to eat, clubs etc. etc.
I like to do all the usual things - eat out, read books, travel, watch films and sport but I can boast of being Warsaw's number one Soul Music Fan... I even have a local radio show and once a week you'll hear me playing Otis Redding, the Temptations, Aretha Franklin and all the other greats. Anyone booking a three night stay gets an automatic dedication on the show ( ! )
We hope to see you, it's great to see more and more of you visiting Warsaw and we will try and make your stay even better...there'll always be some snacks waiting in the fridge for you, some maps, some movies to watch on dvd, an umbrella , some books,....little things as well as the usual things you should expect.
We can also help you with local tours or even yoga lessons - anything at all, just ask !
At the moment we have a few properties in our portfolio all based in the same area so if there's a larger group of you looking to stay send me a message what you need and we might be able to help.
