about the property

The coolest holiday rental apartment in Krakow Old Town, this Kazimierz Jewish Quarter apartment is probably the most stylish flat to rent in Krakow city, as regularly used for magazine and fashion shoots.

A spacious and grand classic old apartment with a remarkable Bohemian interior. Perfectly placed between the Old Town and Kazimierz Jewish Quarter with everywhere you'll want to see easily walkable. Two balconies, high ceilings, a 43m2 salon, this is the former home of Greg, Under the Thatch's founder.

We've scraped back years of modern decoration to create a unique 'modern rustic' Bohemian interior scheme that we hope you'll love. Wall murals by young Polish artist Arek Twardowski, and a mix of antique and specially commissioned furnishings (beds, sofas).

The apartment is 92m2 and has balconies front and back. It's one of the large apartments built for wealthy businessmen in 1905 in the Viennese Secessionist style, on the Kazimierz edge of the Old Town. Today that means it has an ideal location between the touristy Old Town and the Kazimier 'Old Jewish quarter' where you'll find the best bars and restaurants in Krakow. It sits overlooking a quiet square with the best patisserie in Krakow on the ground floor, an art gallery next door and other art galleries and antique shops on the square. You'll find very good food at great prices a short walk in every direction.

The apartment is on the top, 3rd floor and has high ceilings throughout, plenty of light and space.

Guests might like to consider a two-centre holiday - here, and also down to our log mountain house about 80 mins drive away - great for winter skiing and summer hiking.

customer reviews for The Artist's Apartment, Krakow

Fabulous apartment in a great area, walking distance to everything. We will definitely be back. Note to owner: It would be very helpful if some basic cooking provisions were available such as salt and pepper and cooking oil. We noticed there was coffee but we couldn't find anything to make the coffee in. Otherwise the flat was fabulous - we loved the design.

The Artist Apartment is wonderfully wacky, we loved it, although it did add to my step goal for the day, climbing to the third floor. Having two balconies meant we could feel part of the city at the front of the building and have the privacy of the back of the building. It was quiet and kept cool during the hot days, which was very welcome. Krakow is a lovely city and the authenticity of the apartment made our stay a real hit with all the family. Do go you will love it!!

We have absolutely loved this break - the apartment, the city and the people. Enjoy the horse-drawn carriages at night and the music on the main square then cocktails here in the Jewish Quarter - Carolyn

October 2016

Our stay at this apartment was perfect! We had a nice time in his artistic and special flat! We really liked the balconies where we could sit outside and smoke and have a drink at night! I would definitely recommend this flat! It´s perfect for couples or good friends! - Manuela from Berlin

September 2016

The flat is eccentrically charming (loved the old parquet floors and gentle new murals) as well as in a really excellent location for all exploring on foot. Accommodation is spacious and airy. Easy walking round the corner to the Jewish part of town and equally in the opposite direction to the centre: castle, market square, shops etc. Brilliant tiny café right next door (only from 9am). Everything was clean as a new pin and welcoming-feeling when we arrived. And easy to use. Would return any time. - Sarah from Toronto
