Welcome ! Swan's Nest Studio is perfectly located just minutes away from Warsaw's historic Old Town. It's perfect for two but the sofa bed means 3 or even 4 of you could stay comfortably with a separate kitchen and bathroom.
It's a ground floor apartment ( no stairs ) on a quiet road just off the Square and a perfect base for a sightseeing trip, easily accessible by taxi/public transport with all major sights reachable on foot or just a short bus ride away.

The space

Swan's Nest is named after the Swan Building it's located in and we've tried to add a few touches reflecting this to the decor.
After painting everything from top to bottom and giving the place a big clean we started with a really comfortable double bed, added a sofa and everything else we could think of to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
There's a DVD, some films , wifi, maps, a washing machine, a full kitchen with a table, tea, coffee, a bathroom with a shower and a tub for anyone wanting a long soak after a day's sightseeing.
So have we missed anything ? Just ask !

Interaction with guests

Other things to note

Terrible communication led to host sending cleaner in while I was still in the apartment, without even knocking, and walking in as I was leaving the bath. Host very unapologetic about this.

Response from Alicja:
Harry you were our worst ever Guest and caused us much stress. My response is to post the review we made of you as a Guest OUR REVIEW OF HARRY Unfortunately our 'experience' with Harry was our worst ever on AirBnB - it was made worse by the fact that he was our Guest at a time when we ourselves went on holiday leaving our daughter and cleaner exposed to his strange behaviour. Harry's stay at the apartment was quiet until it was time to leave - he did not respond to our messages on AirBnB asking when he would check out so we assumed he would leave at check out time ( 11 am ) and just drop off key in letterbox as per manual. Our cleaner arrived at 11.30 and Harry dressed in a towel had not left yet. He reacted hysterically upsetting our Cleaner who phoned us alerting us of the situation. We were then bombarded with messages from Harry claiming his privacy had been breached and that unless he got a full refund we would be facing legal action. Messages continued along these lines - Harry claimed he had asked to stay until 7 pm but was unable to provide evidence and had not written to us on AirBnB at all until when it came to his threats and attempts to extort money. It was a difficult situation because had we been there we could have of course gone to Harry ourselves and attempted to reason with him but it was not a situation we wanted to expose our daughter to. We are very grateful that AirBnB intervened ( we phoned them before phoning the Police, which would have been our next call ) and finally persuaded Harry to leave. We don't understand what made him behave in this way however would warn all other AirBnB hosts to be careful if accepting him as a Guest. We are always flexible with Guests who ask for extended checkouts - you can see this in our reviews and had Harry actually asked us properly we would have agreed to a longer stay - the fact that that he didn't ask but chose to stay and then started threatening us and asking for a full refund leads us to assume that it was some kind of scam attempt. Whatever it was it spoiled a day of our holiday, much phoning and stress

A nice little place well located for exploring the old town, and with an excellent cafe just round the corner. Very helpful hosts. Recommended.

Lovely flat just beside Old Town. Perfect for travelling as tram / bus stop is a two minute walk. Both hosts were extremely nice too.

Lovely simple little apartment just 3 minutes walk from the old town. No TV as shown in the photos but Warsaw was so lovely, that I doubt we'd have used it anyway. Jan and Alicja were away when we came to stay but we were welcomed by a friend who showed us round and explained everything. Beautifully clean and well cared for. Only downside was the neighbour playing tv through the paper thin walls at all hours of the day.

The apartment is located a stone's throw away from the old town (literally 2-3 minutes walk). There is also a tram stop located 2 minutes away from the apartment. It is located on quite side street and is the ground floor flat. I would have no hesitation with staying at the apartment again. There is bathroom and small kitchen which came with tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and breakfast cereal. The apartment was warm and was perfect for our short city break. We never met Alicja but met Jan on first arriving. We actually arrived late due to fog at the airport and had to re arrange last minute which he very kindly did and also picked us up from central train station. He was also available via text message re any issues we had. I would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment for anyone planning a short break to Warsaw.

Great location, clean flat and wonderful hosts! Couldn't ask for more. Would highly recommend it. Short walk to Old Town attractions. Safe, quiet neighbourhood and a nice pub & grocery store at the end of the street. The lovely hosts provided all the local sightseeing information, booked local transfers and ensured we had a good stay. Fantastic experience overall.

An ideal city break apartment. Situated within walking distance from the Old Town from where you can easily explore the culture rich city of Warsaw. Alicja and Jan were very responsive to all our messages and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable with personal check-in, bottled water in the fridge and the subtle touch of chocolate chip cookies. This was our first Airbnb stay and I can only say that based on this experience I will soon be planning the second. I can recommended this apartment if you are every in Warsaw.

My name is Alicja and I've helped my friend manage some listings and now I'm keen to welcome some of you at my own place ! I love to travel and have been an AirBnB Guest a few times myself so I've tried to add everything that I like to my listings to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I'm tidy, friendly and speak good English and will always be around to help you ( if needed ) during your Stay !
Apart from managing apartments I help manage a nearby Pub, where you will be welcome too. The location is perfect for Warsaw visitors, just minutes from the Old Town and close to all attractions, I've got lots of local knowledge and will be pleased to share it !
Welcome !
