40 sqm modern apartment close to the very center of the city (5 minutes by bus or 10 by tram to railway Central Station, easy one bus access to the airport – 25 minutes), yet in rather quiet neighbourhood, right at the Narutowicza Square, a great transportation hub. Since it's a tram loop (check "Pl. Narutowicza at (website hidden) for connections) – it's not 'that quiet', but still you can feel, what good old Warsaw is like. This is Old Ochota, prestigious Filtrowa street, full of after war 5 story buildings. Our apartment is at the top floor of such a newly renovated (at least from the outside) tenement. No neighbors wall-2-wall, which is nice. Elevator. All the shops necessary nearby, including liquor store in the building (closes after 10 PM, but you have other ones just round the corner).
Apartment consists of two rooms divided by a large sliding glass door: the bedroom with a king size bed and a living room. You have 40 inches LCD with lots of channels, DVD, amplifier and high speed (40 Mbit/s) wireless internet (I can provide you with netbook, if necessary; there's also a printer). In the rather large kitchen you have all the stuff (dishwasher, oven, coffee maker with coffee pots at your disposal, microwave, toaster etc etc etc), in the bathroom you have bath, washing machine (powder/softener provided) and toilet.
We list it as a 3 persons apartment (2 sleep in the bedroom, one on a couch in the living room; for longer stays we'll provide a 'pro' tourist couch, replacing the one on the foto).
We're in our thirties (I'm a journalist, fiancée is a graphic designer, you can see her works on the pictures, hanging on the walls). I'll be more than happy to help you round the hood and Warsaw, get SIMs, city cards or whatever it is that you need.
We can also pick you up from the airport or train station, if that will help you make the right choice :)
Feel free to contact and and AMA!
Warsaw is a fantastic place. Even with the rad cafes, bars, parks and museums Lukasz and Gosia may still be the best part. Thanks to Gosia (I'm told) the apartment is charming and modern, and thanks to Lukasz we were never wanting for people to meet and places to go. It is in a neighborhood that is a little bit out from the center, but an easy tram ride into New Town/Old Town/Fun Town, anywhere. And Polish hospitality everywhere!
We were in an odd situation because we were staying at their place for a whole month for the European Championship (Soccer/Football) as journalists. Not only did Lukasz show us the town, he is a journalist as well, so we were able to make contacts and have access to a little bit of inside pulse.
All in all, we had a great time, and a lot of that can be attributed to our fine hosts.
