“Great location, fabulously helpful hosts, lovely apartment.”

person found this review helpful

Spent 10 days during the Euro2012 championship. We absolutely loved the very convenient, perfectly furnished apartment. The location is easy to get to adjacent to the old town, with convenient (albeit pay) parking. The square the apartment looks over has two decent pubs, a lovely little coffeee shop, small grocer's store that make it extremely convenient. The crowning element are the lovely hosts: Alicja and Jan, who really go out of their way to make the stay work! Comments seconded by my three discerning kids.

“The perfect central location”
Reviewed 31 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

I chose Home from Home instead of a hotel room during a two-week conference. It was the perfect location within easy walking distance of the center and old town. The apartment is spotlessly clean and well equipped. It will easily accommodate a family of four people. Ala, the manager is very helpful. The pub below, and the shop on the corner make the perfect package! In sum, I do not have a negative word to say about it.

“Good Vacation Rental Depending on Your Needs”
Reviewed 6 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We stayed for three nights at Home from Home in Warsaw. We rate this as a 4, but it is more like a 3+. The good things: great location, extremely clean, nice landlord, discount at landlords bar/restaurant downstairs. The downside: the WiFi for the apartment is actually the bar's WiFi. The signal is extremely weak and only really works if you sit by the entrance or go to the bar. The parking is not dedicated parking for this apartment. It is public parking for which you have to pay on weekdays. You are not guaranteed a spot. Since we drove to Warsaw, this was an issue for us. The apartment is located directly over a bar. All bedroom windows open over the bar patio. There is no air-conditing and no fan, so if you want a breeze while you sleep you have to open the windows, which makes it extremely noisy. The bar is on the ground floor - the apartment is on the first floor so you are directly over it.

We really liked this place and found it clean, comfortable, and convenient. We were disappointed because one of our specific questions before renting was about the WiFi which turned out to not be dedicated WiFi or easily accessible WiFi for the apartment. The noise from the bar with the windows open would also make us seek a different vacation rental next time we stay.

This apartment would be greatly improved by having a dedicated computer connection - or a statement that there is no internet, and a fan in the bedroom. It should also be made clear that the parking is pay, public parking.

We recommend this place depending on the needs of the renters.

Management Response
15 Aug 2011
Thanks for your constructive review and criticisms, it is my first year of vacation rentals and I recognize that there may be some mistakes along the way. It was certainly a pleasure having you stay and you left the place almost as you found it, to address the main points -
1. Internet, I remember that this was important to you - we were in touch during your stay but the main problem was with the ISP ( netia ) on those particular days and connections were down in a few places because of the heavy rainfall we had experienced . The connection has otherwise been adequate for our other guests so I do regret the technical glitches and am aware that an internet connection is an important requirement for the modern traveller
2. I have now provided a fan
3. The parking outside the apartment is public and payable during the day before six ( free in the evenings and weekends ) and sometimes because of space restrictions it is necessary to park a little further away. Had you asked at the time specifically we could have directed you to a private car park 3 minutes away which is payable but always has spaces and is under supervision.
Anyway, many thanks for staying and for your comments - Alicja

“Perfect for a weekend stay”
Reviewed 29 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Tastefully decorated apartment that suited our family of 4 perfectly. Very clean and spacious and reasonably priced. Quiet location with a great view of a lovely square. Will definitely stay there again when we come back to Warsaw.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 19 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

It's an excellent, spacious and family friendly place. Beautiful design should appeal highly to those seeking a travel experience rather than simply a place to stay.

Apartment is situated near commercial and cultural centrum of Warsaw and just two minutes away from the old town.

It made our stay in Warsaw truly memorable!
