Dzien dobry Musings!
My quarantine is officially over and I am ready to tell you more about where I am staying here in Krakow.
The full name of the aparthotel is Kosmopolita Rooms & Apartments!
It’s located in the Old Town section of Krakow and so far it’s been great. The hotel provided me with a driver from the airport, which is about a 20 minute drive away. There’s even breakfast served from 8 am to 10 am daily too and it’s yummy! Here are a few pictures for you to judge for yourselves.
Oh! Let’s talk about my room, aka studio apartment!
There are bigger rooms than the one I selected, but since it’s just me I saw no point in the extra space. All the basic amneities are provided, along with housekeeping once a week. Of course I have pictures to show you too! Here you go:
I also added pictures of the view outside my window and a picture of how the window can be opened, since for the last 2 weeks I had no idea how to do it and just decided to leave well enough alone. The fan I bought thanks to Allergo, because of covid, guest are ‘asked’ not to use the A/C unit (which I completely understand). After returning to my room, I saw that the window was ‘unhinged’ and took a picture to send to the receptionist. Though before they arrived I was talking to a friend on IG who asked me to show them the window.
I did, and they proceded to gently explain to me that the window was open properly. My American ass was unaware of the fact that European windows do not open the same way.
Once the realization hit me, I quickly emailed the front desk again, asking (begging, lol) them to please ignore my first message and that I understand that there is nothing wrong with the window. But of course it was too late. They arrived just moments after I sent the email and demonstrated how I can open the window.
Anyhoo, I can now let in fresh air while in my room for the next few weeks, so lesson learned and story time over!
Overall, I really like the aparthotel that I am staying in. The staff is professional and patient, it’s located in a nice area, and the staff takes every precaution during these covid-19 times. What I mean is that not only do the receptionist and breakfast staff wear their PPE (correctly! can not stress that enough) daily, but the breakfast staff prepares everyones meals (so there is less contact from multiple guess) and hand sanitizers are at every main entrance – even the lift!
I would for sure recommend this hotel, and will …as soon as the US gets it together and flatten the curve their so that the rest of the world will open their borders to them.
That’s all for now Musings!
Check back with me soon, as I plan on leaving a review for another place on my ‘gotta visit’ list –
As always, be inspired and stay inspiring!
