This is a really lovely flat in an absolutely perfect location -- we liked everything about it and would love to come back again. Can't recommend it highly enough! Very nice, friendly, and efficient hosts too.
Huge Appartment; great service; close to it all. We would definitely stay here again.
Nous avons séjourné 2 nuits dans l'appartement de Karl.
L'appartement est PARFAITEMENT situé à seulement quelques pas de la vieille ville de Cracovie. Il est également très proche de la gare à pied. L'emplacement est vraiment idéal!!
En ce qui concerne le confort de l'appartement il est joliement décoré, très bien équipé et la literie est top! Le seul hic est qu'il est très sombre ce qui peut le rendre un peu triste.
Karl nous a très bien accueilli et nous a donner quelques conseils et informations sur la ville. Hôte très sympathique, disponible et arrangeant pour les horaires d'arrivée et de départ.
Pour conclure je recommende cet appartement si vous voulez passer quelques jours à Cracovie et vous déplacer essentiellement à pieds!
Ewa et Karl sont très accueillants et très arrangeants. Nous avions notre train tard le soir et ils nous ont permis de laisser nos bagages dans l'appartement le temps de la journée. De plus cet appartement est vraiment agréable et idéalement situé pour un couple qui souhaiterai visiter Cracovie le temps d'un long week-end.
Our guests, Jana & Corey stayed at Red Kurka C for a few days. Here's what they asked me to post here :-)
"Eva and Karol were very friendly and welcoming. They made us feel right at home from the second we stepped into the apartment. The apartment was beautiful, well decorated and extremely clean. The kitchen was fully stocked so we were able to make ourselves a few meals when we didn’t feel like eating out. The WIFI actually worked really well. We had no problem loading websites or streaming movies. An hour after my boyfriend and I checked in we accidently plugged in a US surge protector which blew the electricity in the apartment. They came right over to help us fix it and they just laughed about it. I really enjoyed staying here, and would gladly do so again."
We had the pleasure of staying for 3 nights in the Red Kurka (Apartment C) with our 2 year old daughter. Over the last two years we have done quite a bit of traveling throughout Europe and have stayed in many rental apartments - this is one of the best! The location of the apartment can not be beat - it's easily walkable into the old town and the Jewish district and it is right next door to a little grocery store, yet it is peaceful and quiet. The apartment itself is spacious and beautifully designed, very clean and just a relaxing place to return to every evening. Ewa is an incredible host - she accommodated our early arrival and our late departure, she also supplied a crib for our daughter and suggested various restaurants and playgrounds that would be suitable for a 2 year old. We could not recommend this place more!
Ewa's apartment at Red Kurka was absolutely beautiful! Every detail is accounted for in design and cleanliness and the location could not have been better. We enjoyed waking up and looking out onto a beautiful and quiet courtyard and being within walking distance to everything. Not only was the apartment fantastic, Ewa is a delightful person and host. She was incredibly accommodating with our arrival time and so helpful with recommendations of places to eat nearby. We tried two places on her list- Charlotte and Camelot- and both had delicious food and great prices. There is even a restaurant located next to the apartment, tucked away in the little courtyard, that was quite good. Krakow is lovely on its own, but Ewa and Red Kurka made our stay that much more amazing. Don't pass this place or host up! Thank you, Ewa!
