Interior architect brought unique character to all the apartments making them an excellent choice for guests with truly sophisticated taste.

Additional, independent & objective description: This is a description of the apartment written without my influence on its content by a certain advertising firm:

This is one the hippest apartments to have opened in recent times. The stylish blend of urban and rustic seems straight out of a trendy boutique hotel in London or New York. However, here you'll be stepping out onto a classic nineteenth century Cracovian street, by far the most congenial of the three in our opinion. The Rustic Splendour Apartment has been rustled up with amazing attention to detail. And besides four fantastic rooms, you can enjoy your own sauna at the end of the day. Location is excellent, between the Old Town and Kazimierz. And don't miss the antique market every Sunday at Hala Targowa!

Living room: Architect’s imagination was at its highest in here! Entering it from the hall, the living room has a massive door entrance designed to look as a stylish frame of a rustic picture. The decorative wall across the room features unusual brick design and thus creates a stunning picture in the picture effect. Adhering to the living room is a dining area and kitchen where the touch of rustic style was achieved with creative idea of kitchen designed to look like “Prussian Wall” – heavy diagonal wooden logs over furniture imitating natural rough wall surface create stunning effect. The dining area is features hand made to order ceramic lamps hanging over a beautiful oak table. Silhouetted against the stylish kitchen is a beautiful fountain and its soothingly gurgling water oozing from two meters high bright stone crack and slowly trickling down behind a large tree. Complementing the breathtaking effect of splendour with the rustic touch is a set of classy leather furniture.

Chiseled wood bedroom: Chiseled Wood Bedroom has a romantic flavour which comes with the warm combination of wood, classy leather and patinaed brass. The staggering effect of what we call the Chiseled Wood bedroom comes from its impressive highlight - a large wooden wall artistically treated with chisel in order to achieve sophisticated wooden irregularities reinforced by vertical light. Combination of seemingly accidental grooves and shades creates truly artistic and warm rustic décor. Below the decorative wall, are two single beds made of solid patinaed brass frames and classy leather. Hand made to order ceramic vases complement the rustic image of Chiseled Wood Bedroom.

Feel like walking barefoot on exotic flooring? The in-floor heating system will make your stay in this beautiful bathroom warm and pleasant. Attached to the bathroom is a transparent door leading to the sauna. We are truly happy we have managed to bring in luxury that comes with a sauna, especially being aware that it is rather large houses outside costly cities that can afford such a luxury within extremely high square meter prices of Krakow apartments. Luckily, originally the old apartment had a large pantry without a window – which simply demanded to be converted into the sauna for the enjoyment of our guests.

Poland in March

  • 4 of 5

This property is very well placed for Kraków centre. The flat itself is well appointed and has plenty of space. The only downside of the property is the lack of lounging facilities. The flat sleeps six but the living area only has one two seater settee. If you fancy a night in then some of your party will need to sit at the dining table. We did ask if we could borrow some chairs from another apartment but we were told no despite the fact that no one was renting the other apartments. These are minor niggles but none the less it does help if you can be comfortable when it's a cold and rainy night and you would like to stay home for dinner. There are no tea towels and dishcloths so take some along with you. There was also a fair amount of dust in the corners and under the beds plus pair of pants under one of the beds! Apart from that it was fine and I would say by Polish standards at the top end of the quality spectrum.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your rewiev. We will consider you comments. We are sorry for inconvenience with chairs, but second apartment was rent in this time and third apartment was reserved for next day after your arrival. Besides, you were a group of 5 persons and in the living room were 6 chairs and a couch as well.

This was our favorite VRBO in a month long European travel vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this apartment! The location was perfect and within walking distance to the square. The apartment was perfect for us, very clean and roomy! It was the perfect size for the 6 of us (4 being women - so the two bathrooms were nice to have)! We traveled through Europe for one month and this was our favorite VRBO! Ania was so accommodating! We had family members arriving from different parts of Europe and she arranged for a driver (Zibi - who was absolutely amazing) to pick all of us up at either the airport or train station. She also arranged for a driver to take us to Zakopane, Gron (a little town that my husband’s family is from), as well as the next day for a visit to Auschwitz and Birkenau. We also really appreciated the fact that she could help us out by letting us drop off our luggage early so we could start our visit! If we ever come back to Krakow, we would definitely stay in this apartment as well as recommend it to anyone even thinking about staying here!

Thank you, Ania KrakowHomes Vacation Rentals

Perfect accommodation for a city trip

  • 5 of 5

We have been 9 friends staying in the Rustic Splendor appartment. Before we started our trip back with EuroLot Airlines from Zurich airport I reminded my friends, that on every city trip we had, something went not as expected.

Last year for example we booked an appartment in Amstersam and instead staying in one appartment downtown we had to split the group all over town. It was a disaster.

Our trip to Krakow instead was perfect, the transfer organized from Krakow Homes was on time, it was uncomplicated and the appartment introduction from Anna was very friendly and professional.

We arranged the payment for the next day, because it was already late night and no one of us had enough cash and even this was no problem.

The appartment itself was clean, is still looking like on the pictures and all beds had fresh sheets on. Even fresh towals with a piece of polish chocolate had been placed on the beds.

Also on sad -Sunday ( because we had to leave), the transfer was in time and the handover of keys etc. was uncomplicated and quick. We even got the permission to stay in the appartment till 4pm, so we don't have hurry.

Overall, it was as mentioned in the title a perfect weekend,in a perfect city, staying in a perfect appartment.

Thank you and see you soon

Luxury living in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our girls weekend! Beautifully styled, comfy and clean, the lighting is amazing. We were 6 adults and there was plenty of space for all. Dark and quiet for sleeping. Close to the old town and jewish quarter.

Ania was friendly and attentive, arranged airport transfer and printed out our return tickets. She even looked up spas and shops and sent us helpful links.

Highly recommend this rental!!

Nice, clean and quiet stay on a good location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice, clean, quiet and location was perfect. I recommend this apartment to anyone, friends or families. The hostess Ania was so friendly, she arranged us the taxi to the airport and kept us company as the taxi was late like an hour.

Two highly competitive places of Krakow determine the attractiveness of any apartment location. Depending on individual taste, guests tend to hang out in glamorous Market Square or at enchanting Kazimierz areas. The location of Rustic Splendour apartment will surely meet the needs of all guests as it lies exactly in between the two main social night-life attractions - 5 minutes’ walk to both areas.
