“I'd rather keep this a secret!”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

The apartment (with balcony) is in a newly refurbished old building, with a well planned and well maintained courtyard. It looks quite magical at night as the lighting has been designed to enhance the plants and huge tree which stands majestically in the middle. The design and quality of the fixtures and fittings in the apartment ( some sourced from Germany, Italy and Holland) are to a very high spec. with attention to detail. Even the handrail into the building had been designed and made by a local designer. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. Rooms large with high ceilings. Beds comfortable. Furnishings lovely.The service is exceptional, provided by Adrian, who is a true professional. He is friendly and polite, and on hand and ready to help. The location is perfect. At the edge of the Old Jewish quarter and just over ten minutes walk to the square in Krakow city centre (through planty, a tree-lined walkway surrounding the city) So plenty of restaurants and sights nearby. A wonderful place to stay. Can't fault it. Planning to return next year.

What a gem. Met by a lovely young man Adrian who made us feel very welcome. The apartment was fabulous had everything we needed and more. The balcony overlooking the courtyard is wonderful, especially at night when the courtyard is lit. The apartment is very modern, the light turn on and off automatically when you enter or leave a room. Our apartment had two beautiful bathrooms with huge rainfall showers and a hairdryer. It's very well located for the Jewish area and the main square being a very short walk. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: The 3 bedroom apartment (number12) has a balcony. It can be a two bedroom apartment also.

A good apartment with good quality accommodation. Could not fault it on any level - the location was particularly good and is only a very short walk from the city centre. Air conditioning was excellent especially on a number of days when the temperature was very high

My partner and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Elegant Apartments in Krakow. The apartments are located a short distance from the main market square; around a ten minute walk and are on the outskirts of the Jewish district of Kazimierz.

On arrival we were greeted by a young man; Adrian who looked after us for the duration of our stay...he was brilliant and nothing was too much trouble for him. Adrian also checked us in at 11am because the apartment was ready to go.

The apartments themselves are situated in an old building which on first sight seemed a little tired. However when we entered the apartments it was a revelation. We found the apartments have been renovated to a very high standard. Our apartment had beautiful high ceilings and lighting, and was furnished beautifully. There were also plenty of heaters in each room and even though it was -2 degrees outside we were very warm inside.

The kitchen area had a full size fridge freezer, four ring hob, microwave, dishwasher and a filter coffee maker. There was also plenty of cutlery, utensils, washing up liquid, sugar, salt, pepper and herbs!

The bathroom had a beautiful walk in rainfall shower, hairdryer and there was Dove shower cream provided as well as plentiful toilet roll.

The bedroom was beautiful and had plenty of clothes storage and the comfiest of beds. In all we really enjoyed our stay and will be staying at the Elegant Apartments again.

So surprised at the high standard of accomodation offered, these are great apartments and a must if staying in Krakow. We had an apartment for six people all felt comfortable and not invading each others space. We were close enough to enjoy a short walk to the centre and all amenities. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for you it added to an overall positive experience of Poland.
