My husband and I stayed in Apartment Sara for three nights in March 2011. It was a very spacious and comfortable apartment which had been tastefully renovated to a high standard. We really enjoyed the log fire and there was a plentiful supply of wood. The location of the apartment was perfect - very close to Krakow's magnificent square and yet peaceful. Grazyna and Vitek could not have been more helpful - right down to checking us in and out, arranging taxi transfers from and to the airport and booking a tour for us which picked us up and dropped us off at the front door. They provided a map with useful information on it and a mobile phone so that we could contact them if needed. We can highly recommend "Pod Baranem" restaurant - fine Polish dining, excellent service and very reasonable prices. If you are ever in Krakow then Apartment Sara is the place to stay!

Die Ferienwohnung laesst keine Wuensche offen und ist mit allem Komfort ausgestattet. Hier kann man einen wunderschoenen, erholsamen Urlaub verbringen. Es fehlt an Nichts und man merkt dar der Vermieter viel daran liegt das es dem Gast gut geht. Es war eine sehr gute Unterkunft, sehr gut eingerichtet und vor allem sie war sehr sauber. Das Wohnzimmer ist sehr schoen und funktionell eingerichtet, die Kueche sowie Douche sind sehr gepflegt. Die Sehenswuerdigkeiten ( Markt / Burcht usw. sind bestens zu Fuss erreichbar. Sowohl der Email-Kontakt mit der Vermieter, als auch die Wohnungsuebergabe, bei der Anreise und Abreise, waren ausserst freundlich, hilfreich und zuvorkommend. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefuehlt.

We stayed 4 nights for the Halloween week-end. We are 6 friends and we all loved the apartment. It is perfectly located : very close to the center, but in a quite street for the night. Bathroom, kitchen, beds, everything is very clean, comfortable and safe (I loved the high tech luminated lock :)
Everyone of us will surely book again the apartment when flying back to Krakow, which is a wonderful city and offers a lot to visit.
Thank you so much for everything Grazyna and Vitek.

This is an honest review from a first visitor to Krakow I would recommend Krakow and this SUPERB 1st floor apartment to anyone It is one of the best we have stayed in. VERY SPACIOUS! Owners very friendly and helpful, they even give you a mobile to contact them if need be (we didn't have to). It was no problem for them to arrange provisions, tours, airport pick up etc. The apartment was IMMACULATE, all the amenities you would want including a log fire with plenty of cut logs on the balcony for use. abundance of space ( we shared with another couple, privacy, no probs! layout fantastic with two large bathrooms). Location is EXCELLENT, very central - 5mins walk to old town main square, Jewish quarter and Wawel. We had a wonderful weekend and hope to go back to Krakow. We would definately book this apartment again. I doubt there is any better!! Thank you Grazyna and Vitek for everything

We confirm all the comments of the tenants.
Nous avons souvent réservé des appartements ou des maisons lors de nos voyages et c'est de loin le meilleur acceuil que nous avons reçu. En plus d'avoir un appartement de l'ancienne bourgeoisie.
Malgré la température fraiche du mois d'octobre nous avons découvert la chaleur des Polonais de Cracovie.

The apartment, location and over all trip exceeded our expectations. This was my first time renting an apt and it was by far better than I imagined. The photos and description of the apt. is accurate. Very nice apartment. Most of all the owner was trustworthy, honest and very attentive and helpful with our needs. Since this was our first time in Poland the owner and his team made our trip very special. We loved the location, safe, clean, quiet. We'll be back for sure.

This property is truly gorgeous, clean, well maintained and with very helpful owners. It is without a doubt the most beautiful place we have ever rented, and we would highly recommend it to anyone who wants luxurious surroundings in a fascinating city.

Very charming and comfortable apartment close to all attractions. Taxi transfers (including an 0500 departure) were most beneficial for weary travelers. Highly recommended.

Ric, Heerlen Netherlands

We absolutely loved the apartment. It was very spacious and convenient to all the attractions. Weekend and nighttime parking outside was plentiful. Great neighborhood with a lot of charm. A small grocery store nearby. The main attractions were only 5 minutes walk away. Perfect in every way!

We travelled with 3 young kids and there was plenty of space for all of us.

The owners were very forthcoming and flexible and even provided a cell phone to use in case we needed help. We have found a Polish home away from home and plan to use the apartment again in the future.

My sister-in-law, wife and I stayed in Apartment Sara for two weeks in July. The apartment is exactly like the descriptions we had read about it. It was very nice. There were many personal touches by Vitek and Grazyna. They even supplied a great sampling of foods and fresh flowers on our arrival. This was a welcome treat to travelers after a long airplane trip. All of our many questions were answered and they gave us a great map with recommendations of good restaurants in Krakow. This was very helpful. Vitek also set up a river rafting trip for us. Everything is within short walking distances from the apartment. We had been in Krakow a year ago and had to use the trams and buses all the time to get to any place. This year we were able to walk to most everything.

It was a great place to stay and all three of us would highly recommend the apartment to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Krakow. Vitek arranged our airport pickup on arrival and even arranged for our pickup to go back to the airport to leave Krakow at an unbelievable time of 4:30 am without any problems. This was great.

We had a great vacation in Krakow and the Apartment Sara.

This apartment was everything described and more! Spacious and private, the apartment was clean and ideally located for our eight day stay in Krakow. Even though it was quite warm in Krakow during our visit, the apartment remained cool! Sarego St. is peaceful, with an urban neighborhood appeal. We walked easily to the city square, the Planty, Wawel Castle, and the Jewish Quarter and always felt safe doing so. Shopping, restaurants and groceries are all within easy reach.

Vitek was very friendly and accessible. He greeted us with a wonderful assortment of fresh fruits, meats and cheeses and offered great advice on restaurants, tours and Krakow highlights. He helped us regain with our lost luggage and was always just a phone call away. Our daughter and her husband stayed with us at the apartment for our entire visit; with all the space available in the apartment we could easily gather as a group or find privacy when needed. Love the living room - beautiful high ceilings! The kitchen was very well equipped and very clean, as were the bathrooms. Appliances were fully operational.

Having a place to come home to each day really added to our enjoyment of Krakow. Our next trip to Krakow to visit our daughter will be scheduled to match up with the availability of this apartment. We loved it!

A perfect place for a visit to a great city and surroudings. The apartment is exellent, well situated; everything within walking distance. Our host is very friendly and helpfull. We enjoyed our stay (with friends) very much and will recomment this place to everybody who wants to visit Krakow!

We stayed here for 5 days, and the apartment was super. Host was very helpful, apartment was clean and nice. Everything you will ever need is in the apartment; the kitchen was very well equipped.
Location is perfect with all major attractions only a five minutes walk away, and still the neighborhood was quiet and nice. We would stay here again anytime!
Thank you!

Kevin / Kildare, Ireland

With three children 9, 11 and 16 travelling with us the space and freedom this 1st class apartment gave us was perfect. We will certainly be recommending this as an ideal base to explore Krakow. Everything is within a short walking distance and our hosts arranged our tours to Auswitch and the Salt Mines with pick up and drop off outside the apartment.
We used our hosts recommendations for eating out and found the local cuisine excellent. As a family we also self catered and found the kitchen and local supermarket ideal for our needs. Prices are very low when compared to Irish prices (about half)
The apartment is spotless with excellent living, sleeping and bathroom facilities.. (You could easily spend the evening staying in and feel totally at home...)
The ornate high ceilings gave a sense of grandeur and comfort.. (far exceeds any hotel experience).
The city itself is beautiful with architecture, churches, city walls etc dating to the 9th century. A lived in city where I felt totally safe at all times...

This apartment is excellent. It is very well equipped. Very quiet. Bedrooms are large and very comfortable. It is located very closed to those major attraction. Convenient to buy grocery, bakery and closed to restaurants. Vitek is a very good operator, very efficient, very knowledgeable and helpful. We surely will rent this unit next time we come to Krakow. It is such a pleasant trip. Vitek and his unit deserves our strongest recommendation.

I submitted my experience shortly after our arrival home last October but I see it is not published.
I must once again agree with my sister's sentiments posted Jan 2010 . Our hosts were absolutely marvelous, the apartment was in keeping with any expectations that one might have of a fisrt class hotel anywhere in the world. Apt. Sara was convenient, furnished beautifully and frankly we all wished we could have stayed for a very long time it was that comfortable.
We would recommend it to anyone and when we revisit Krakow we will once again stay with you. Thank you so much for the memory of a lifetime.

Apartment Sara was ideally situated for the castle, old city and river walks. It was well furnished with extremely comfortable beds and exceptional bathrooms/showers. The wood burning fire was great and very easy to use. The whole apartment was faultless as was our very warm welcome from Vitek. Thanks again and hope to get back.

Heather / Leeds UK

A great apartment, much better than a hotel room. Spacious, very clean, well equippped. Good location, only a 5-10 minute walk from the market square. Grazyna and Vitek were very helpful and friendly, advising us of restaurants they'd recommend, Mama Mia just off the main sqaure was particularly good. Would definitely visit again...highly recommended!

Krakow was the second stop on our 2 month tour of major cities of Central and Western Europe. We stayed in the luxury Apartment Sara where we knew the accomodations would be nice from the description and photos posted on the website. Not only were the listing descriptions accurate, we were pleased to find the apartment far exceeded our expectations. An excerpt from my journal entry for our arrival day states: "This apartment is phenomenal! The rooms are huge, beautifully decorated and furnished, and the bathrooms are 5* hotel quality. The living room has leather furniture, hardwood floors covered with oriental area rugs, a big flat screen TV, plus the most beautiful decorative painted ceiling. I feel like I'm staying in a very high quality hotel without the high pricetag."
The apartment is very conveniently located within walking distance of everything the Old Town has to offer including some very enjoyable restaurants recommended by our host. We especially enjoyed our daily walks along the Planty, touring the beautiful Wawel Castle and grounds, visiting the abundance of churches with their varied and beautifully executed artistic styles, the bustle of the Main Market Square with its Cloth Hall and wonderful handcrafted souvenirs.
Grazyna and Vitek supplied everything in their pristine apartment one could possibly need, provided a cell phone so we could reach them when needed, and even made reservations and transportation arrangements for our visit to Auschwitz. They were most pleasant and accommodating as they provided excellent service.
At the end of our journey, during which we visited an additional 18 cities, we agreed without question that our hosts at Apartment Sara and the apartment itself were the finest we had encountered. Unless you are unable to climb a flight of stairs, we highly recommend Apartment Sara to everyone! You will not be disappointed in any way.
Our grateful thanks to Grazyna and Vitek; we hope to visit Apartment Sara again in the future.

We have just come back from a 4 night stay in this apartment and were absolutely thrilled with what we found there. The apartment was everything we could have wanted and is clearly a real labour of love for the owners. The personal touches make this such a pleasant stay. As well as this it is spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and could not have been a better location. Everything we wanted to see in the city was a quick stroll through the lovely streets of this fantastic city. We would definitely stay here again.

Wir haben 3 Tage in Krakow in dem Appartment von Grazyna u. Vitek verbringen dürfen. Es war von der Einrichtung, Ausstattung und Lage her das schönste,das wir je hatten.Es wurde vor kurzem aufwändig auf sehr hohem Niveau saniert, wobei dies
sehr liebevoll unter Beibehaltung des altbürgerlichen Charakters der Wohnung erfolgte.Die Ausstattung läßt nichts zu wünschen übrig.Die Lage ist für Touristen einmalig:Das Appartment liegt mitten im Dreieck zwischen Marktplatz,Wawel und Kazimierz in einer Sackgasse.
Besonders gefreut hat uns die sehr freundliche, hilfreiche und unkomplizierte Abwicklung durch unsere Gastgeber.
Wir werden sicherlich bald wieder kommen.
Vielen Dank an Grazyna +Vitek.

Thanks Grazyna and Vitek for lending us your excellent appartment in Krakow.
My girlfriend and I had a great stay - lots of space for two independant young ladies and all the facilities - in the appartment and nearby - that we could wish for.
The appartment was clean, tidy and had plenty of room for more people - a bit of a luxury to have it all to ourselves!
We will definitely come and stay again when we come to Poland! Take care and hope to see you soon, Anna.

Apartment Sara fit our need for Krakow housing very well. Very well maintained, clean, affordable, and comfortable with amenities you won't find elsewhere. We would most definitely stay there again upon a return visit to Krakow.

Location is very central to both Wawel and Old Town and walking to either is very easy.

Vitek is very easy to work with, and most helpful, and we couldn't thank him enough for the fine service.

Top-notch experience all around - ideal location, fair price, roomy interior with a lot of class, well-appointed kitchen. Landlord picked us up at the airport, provided us with a cellphone, and had some goodies (wine, beer, maliny, peaches, etc.) waiting for us, all at no cost.

This is an excellent apartment and so nice to relax in after a day of sightseeing. The apartment is immaculate, beautifully decorated, has all the amenities, and the well stocked kitchen was a treat. Before we arrived the owners suggested sights we might be interested in and then arranged for tours that picked us up and delivered us to the front door. Vitek met us at the train station and and was very attentive to all our requests. The apartment is centrally located on a quiet street and is in walking distance of the Central Square and many other attractions. I highly recommend this apartment and would love to stay here again. Thank you Vitek and Grazyna!

Our family of five stayed in this beautiful, clean apartment. It was (truly) within walking distance of the Old Town and many wonderful shops and restaurants. Grazyna and Vitek are very helpful and can make many arrangements for you. We are already recommending them to our fellow travellers. Everything we needed (hair dryer, iron, coffeemaker, toaster and MUCH MUCH more) is there. Grocery store is one minute away. Perfect for a family!

Anne-Marie, USA/Bucharest, Romania

My friends and I loved this apartment, by far the nicest in our entire two month trek around Europe using, booked apartments in most cities we visited. This was decidedly the best one we experienced.

The apartment was spotlessly clean, large, spacious, nicely decorated, with a great kitchen and bathrooms. Beds were comfortable and it had all facilities we could possibly have wanted.

Vitek was very gracious to meet us at the train station, and left a cell phone with us to call him if we had any problems.

Most highly recommended!

We stayed in this beautiful apartment from June 10th to 16th. This was our third VRBO rental apartment (first in Paris; second in Berlin) -- all were outstanding but in terms of size, amenities and proximity to attractions, this was the best. 20 Sarego is a large apartment which is totally quipped for your stay. The kitchen is as complete as your own home and has a dishwasher, if you decide to stay away from the many inexpensive and delicious restaurants. The apartment has two spacious bedrooms and, here's the thing about the bathrooms -- for a Canadian, the absence of water-saver shower heads is a total treat. It's like taking a shower in Canada in the 1960's. The apartment has a 42 inch television with 260 channels (not a tv addict but did like to see the news on BBC World or CNN Europe). The apartment is located in a completely safe area and on a street that is a dead-end which pretty much eliminates traffic. It is located about a 5-10 minute walk from the central square of Krakow, Wawel Castle and Cathedral, the Jewish district and anything else in central Krakow. The Polo Market (grocery store) is less than 5 minutes away as is the main city Post Office. Sylvia (who works for the owners Vitek and Grazyna) met us at the apartment and was so helpful, giving us a complete tour and leaving us her mobile number just in case we needed anything. Krakow is a beautiful, small city in Southern Poland and this the apartment to rent if you want superb accommodations at a good price and easy access to all that the city has to offer.

This was a fantastic experience to me and my family. Perfect location. Very convenient yet very peaceful - not noisy not crowded. Clean. Modern. Well equipped.

The owners are so helpful.

Won't think twice to book this next time when i come to beautiful Krakow again.

marted, Toronto, Canada

The apartment was immaculate and had all the modern conveniences - it was even more beautiful then described in the advertisement.We are a family with 2 grown sons.The size allowed us breathing room for 4 adults. The location is superb and very close to to the main square, beautiful parks, transit, fabulous restaurants, excellent shopping and all attractions. We felt very safe in the apartment, and the neighbourhood.The owners/hosts are extremely attentative and will try to accomodate all requests.They make themselves available to help in anyway to make the stay at the apartment a positive one. They purchased some food items for us prior to arrival so that we could have a bite to eat without running out to the store right away. The kitchen is fully equipped for those who like to cook or convenient for preparing breakfast before touring the town. The finishings of the apartment are 1st class with modern conveniences in a historic building setting. It is nice to have a washing machine to wash a few items. The fireplace (wood burning) was also a nice touch for those ocasional cooler/rainy nights. We would definately stay here again and recommend it to families, singles, or couples. The only caution is that the building does not have an elevator - we found the 2 sets of stairs great excercise for us but this may cause concern for people with disabilities. All in all this apartment is superb and was one of the highlights for our trip throughout Poland - we thank the owners for making it such a pleasant experience.

This apartment was incredible, spacious and very quite. Our hosts were very helpful and the bonus of flowers, wine and stocked kitchen was really appreciated. This place was truly like a home away from home.

We have already recommended this place to our friends. It is very conveniently located to restaurants, sites and grocery stores. For any runners out there, you are one block away from the Planty which is a beautiful green belt around the Old Town and perfect for running or walking.

Limbo, London

The property is very well located. Next to the old town, and moments from the Jewish area. A short taxi from the station. Very spacious and modern. Perfect for couples or families. The fire place would be ideal for winter. The kitchen has all the needed tools and the living area allows for space. Marble bathrooms. Clean and well kept. Very quiet side street (one end of the road is blocked, so no through traffic). Ideal property for basing yourself when staing in Krakow. The owners and manager are very friendly and helpful. To many bars and restruants with in walking distance to mention - the old town and the Jewish area have everything from traditional to sushi. The vodka is worth trying in moderation.

We were here for a long girly weekend from thurs-sun. The information received about the apartment was accurate and exceeded my expectations. The location was a 20min walk from the train station; perfect for sightseeing because everywhere was approx a 5-10min walk away and safe.

The apartment felt like a home from home. With it's high ceilings, spacious lounge/dining area, fully equipped kitchen, 2 very spacious twin rooms and 2 bathrooms made it a perfect place to relax after a long day of shopping and sightseeing.

The next time I visit Krakow, I will most definately stay here again.

Choosing this apartment as our temporary "home" in Krakow was one of the best vacation decisions we made. It was so comfortable, pretty, spacious and clean. We are so glad that we stayed here instead of in a tiny hotel room. We could easily cook and entertain our 2 year old daughter here. This would have been impossible if we were cramped inside a hotel. The location of the apartment is also great - very central to public transportation and to sight-seeing. We can't wait to visit Poland again and will definitely stay here. I highly recommend staying at this apartment, especially if you are traveling with your family or with a couple friends. It's just perfect! Thank you for a wonderful vacation. :)
