Reviewed 29 March 2012

So this time, I decided to try out renting an apartment instead of checking into hotel or hostel. For one the prices are comparable, with hotels costing abit more. The apartment was in an type oldish building (no elevator) at Józefa Dietla 75, a block from corner of Józefa Dietla and Starnowilsna St, where there is a tram stop. (take no 12 only 2 stops to/from Central Station). The apartment was central, in walking distance to just about everything to do. Also we got picked up there for tours. There is a great restaurant downstairs if you don't feel like cooking. There is also a small supermarket downstairs in the building. The check-in procss was easy. They give you a code for the door and a code for the lockbox with your keys. The internet worked however I found it to be a bit slow. There was a faster free open network available! :) Would I stay here again? Yes. It was nice to come to a clean modern furnished apartment and live almost as if you were home. The apartment had everything you needed to get started. I would however recommend they get a flat screen tv to replace the dinosaur in the bedroom. Otherwise everything was fine, very modern Ikea furniture and this quiet studio apartment also had a washing machine and small terrace overlooking the courtyard!

Room Tip: Quiet small studio on 3rd floor overlooking courtyard.

Because of the time of the train was change, we need to find a place for one night. Old Town Apartments was cheaper than others. Then we booked two rooms. Thanks for the staff waited for us until 9pm. They prepared the map for us to find the apartment. Although we didn't live in the apartment look likes the photos, we're very satisfy with the apartment. The place was large and nearby the old town. Only one thing is not so good, which the location is not easy to find and there were some keys, we must learn how to open and knock the door.

Room Tip: Beware, the office is not easy to find and you must get the map and then find the apartment by yours...

Dear Guests,
Thank you for posting your review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay in general.
You made a reservation through the external reservation system and there is no option of presenting the photos of all our apartments (in Krakow we have 30 apartments). When booking directly thorugh our website you can see specific apartments and their photos as well as other important information.
We have 30 apartments located in 3 different buildings, the office is located within 5-10 minutes walk from the apartments. During the check-in guests receive photo directions and maps with detailed information how to get to apartments. As apartments are located in residential buildings, sometimes you need to use 3 keys to get inside. The procedure is needed for safety reasons. All instructions about using the keys are also given to guests during check-in.
We do our best so that all procedures are easy. We always listen attentively to all comments from our guests as thanks to them we are able to be more customer friendly.
Once more, thank you for your opinion! It is very important for us.

Kind Regards,
Joanna Kobylecka

I decided to book with Old Town Apartments after a particularly unpleasant experience with a rival company. I still can't believe that for the same price I paid for a dirty, noisy, almost derelict room with Old City Apartments, I got a modern, warm, bright and comfortable apartment in the heart of the city and a level of Customer Service that shames what we Brits have come to accept in England.
The taxi that collected me from the airport was a nice Mercedes people carrier, driven by Artur, who was friendly and competent and a genuinely pleasant man who pointed out the various sights en route to Krakow. The Office Manager, Joanna, and her colleague, also called Joanna, were intelligent and friendly, (and very attractive - I might be an old fogey but I can still appreciate an office full of pretty girls!) they processed me efficiently and gave me a detailed orientation pack containing maps, directions and apartment instructions.
The Galaxy apartment was a short walk from the Main Square in a street with a large choice of shops and restaurants. The apartment was clean, warm and stylish - Ikea furniture, fitted kitchen, comfortable beds, very large bathroom - incredible value for money.
I had a great stay in Krakow, loved the apartment and the warm welcome I received from this company. They should be responsible for training other similar companies!
Can't wait to return!

These apartments are clean comfortable and high standard. The view we had was not up to much but that is the only negative. They were central and had a great 24 hour supermarket just down stairs. they were secure Had a fantastic restaurant just 5 mins walk it was called Pod Wawelem kompanis kuflowa really good food and reasonable price Lemon vodka was really nice as well!
We also got a fantastic taxi service from Pawel Kucharuk he collected us from airport made sure we got to our apartments all for 20 Zloty each then arranged a private tour of Auschwitz and salt mines you can contact him on info@taxi-travel.pl very trustworthy

a group of nine stayed in these apartments in February 2012. We had never been to Krakow before and were really impressed by the location (right next to the main square) cleanliness, price and size. We rented three apartments in total, all right next to each other.Even although the temperature plummeted to mins 20 at night, the apartments were warm and cosy.It was a real find. Poland is a beautiful coutry, ward and friendly people.If, or indeed when we next visit,
we will rent these apartments again. We had two two bedroom apartments and a one bed studio. There was TV, microwave, fridge freezer, toaster in the living/dining area, as well as a table that comfortably sat all of us together. There was a good sized clean shower room with a washing machine. There was also a hairdryer in the shower room.The decor was fresh and modern, plently of crockery, glasses and cutlery.All in all this represented real value for money.

Room Tip: old town apartments have many properties. Ask for Ginger, Chilli or Lavender apartments.
