About Janey

I am half Polish (my Father came from Lvov), half Scottish - but brought up in the UK and I have to confess to not speaking any Polish (apart from basics). We visited Poland first in 1989 and fell completely in love with it. I think that those with Polish blood do feel a pull - and I am always thrilled at how many guests (and most are more intrigued rather than having family ties) also fall for Warsaw and Poland.

My children loved the apartment when they were young teenagers because they could step straight out of the apartment into a capital city centre and they adored the freedom and adventure of that. It says a lot for Warsaw that we were happy for them to explore the town on their own.

I don't live there full time but my brother and nephew do. They manage the apartment for me.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'This is a beautiful flat and the situation is utterly perfect! We had never realised Warsaw was so lovely. Keep it quiet as we will definitely be back' - PJP. Sept 2005

'I could not get a better place to live during my last visit to Poland at the end of Nov 05. The location of the apartment is ideal - in the middle of Warsaw just steps from the Old Town and yet the bedrooms are very quiet and relaxing. I got everything I wanted - superior accommodation with modern amenities, elegant interior design, great choice of transportation, walking distance to most attractions and many restaurants. I will not waste my time looking for anything else in Warsaw for my next visit to Poland. Thank you for your hospitality too!' Dr. M. Laster. California.

'We loved the apartment and we loved Warsaw. Everything was just perfect' Stevenson Family, UK

'The apartment was wonderful. We were so impressed by the comfortable beds, the appointment and the lovely colours' Mrs Gaslin, US 2008

We enjoyed the apartment. Piotr and his son, Aleks, also helped us. The apartment was well furnished with all we needed. We walked everywhere without the use of public transportation. We would certainly book it again if we were to return to Warsaw.

History at the door step

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in the middle of the old town with wonderfull access to many museums and historical sights. The apartment , itself was very clean, well equipped, and comfortable. The only caveate is that the bath tub is very deep, with no shower, which might be difficult for seniors and disabled persons to use.

Beautiful Apartment in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment is in a perfect location and felt like home from the first day. It is an easy walk to many attractions especially the old town area. It is nicely furnished and the kitchen has all of the things you need to prepare a meal. The bedrooms are in the back of the apartment so despite the fact that the apartment is on a busy street, the bedrooms are quiet making for wonderful sleeping. The owner's brother met us on our arrival day and gave us a complete orientation to the apartment and the surrounding area. We love to walk and so never used public transportation but it is readily available. The owner has prepared a very good guide for attractions in the area and recommended restaurants and we used it to plan our daily trips. We loved Warsaw and actually ran out of time with all there is to see. If we ever return, we will certainly try to stay in this apartment again. Sadly, the donut shop on the first floor is gone and has been replaced by a rental office but there are plenty of other places to get Polish donuts!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, it was a short walk to Old Town and restaurants. We were able to drive up to the building with our luggage. I enjoyed the standing on the balcony and looking up and down the street. The bedrooms were quiet. The owner was responsive.

Great Apartment, Unbelievably Central

  • 5 of 5

The flat is in a central location right on the edge of the old town and is very typical of a Warsowian residential apartment. The public transport links (once I got the hang of them) were close by and convenient. As far as sight seeing most of the important historic buildings, they are all close by. The flat itself was more than adequate for our purposes (3 guys) being furnished with a twin room and a large double. For an extended weekend city break the flat had all the amenities we needed. Though the kitchen was small we were able to make ourselves breakfast and keep beers and cheeses (and herring) cold in the fridge.

I would recommend the place and look forward to staying there again when the opportunity arises

A most enjoyable experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 week visit to Poland, the second part of our holiday was spent in this lovely apartment in Warsaw old town in a wonderful location for waalking and sight-seeing.

When we arrived we met up with Janeys brother Piotr,a charming gentleman, who showed us round the apartment and made sure that everything was made clear to us.There are 2 supermarkets within 10 minutes walking distance, there is a bus stop at the door if you require to travel away from the old town, please note that if you are over 65 you travel free, make sure you have your passport with you.

As the t.v. only picks up polish stations I advise you to take something electronic to pick up radio stations or take your own music.

You don't have to travel any distance to find good restaurants and coffee shops, all in all I think you will find a visit to this historic apartment a most enjoyable experience in a wonderful location.

Within a few minutes walk are many characterful restaurants – the gourmet Fukier’s in The Old Market Square, Le Regina in the New Town or the 5* Bristol (a 5 minute walk). Fabulous Thai, Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern and specialist Pierogi restaurants. In the summer, dining is outside or, if you prefer, in the cool, candle-lit darkness of the old world Central European restaurants. Poland’s patisserie and coffee house tradition is omnipresent - from the streets to the parks!

Further Details:

There are innumerable ways to spend days in Warsaw – visiting the magnificent castles, palaces, churches, parks, museums, operas and theatres or wandering around the 18th century University area. There is the picturesque shopping the length of the Royal Way – the route to Europe’s only unaltered neo-classical park, the Lazienki, with its exquisite Palace on the Water. A stroll here, pausing for coffee and patisserie is a joy.

There are more recent historical landmarks – the Warsaw Ghetto Monument and the recently opened museum of the Warsaw Uprising. There's the Marie Curie Museum, art treasures at the National Museum, Modern Art at the Ujazdowski Castle, exhibitions at Poland’s foremost Zacheta Gallery, the Chopin Museum and the Botanical Gardens by the Old Observatory.

The wooded banks of the Vistula, one of the two natural city-centre riverbanks left in Europe are fabulous for walks or bicycling and just a few minutes walk from the apartment.

Within easy reach of the city are stunning country palaces and flower decked manor houses. Chopin’s birthplace at Zelazowa Wola and dozens of horse riding centres echoing Poland’s great cavalry tradition.

At the vast expanse of nearby Zalew Zergrzynski there’s every water sport – and for the brave, parachuting at Chrcynno.

Polands weather is wonderfully varied. Christmas and New Year are nearly always snowbound. The snowfalls, blue skies, dry air and hard frosts freeze the Vistula into a sheet of ice. April brings a dramatic, if unpredictable rise in temperature. There could be a heat-wave or blustery winds. Late Spring is usually warm and sunny (18-25 centigrade). Warsaw Summers are hot and sunny. The golden Autumn is wonderful as the maple trees turn burnished gold in the autumn sunshine.
