Four bedroom apartments are generally less popular in Krakow, as most apartments made for the local market have a smaller configuration. Nevertheless, Hamilton May has responded to demand for four bedroom apartments, mostly from expat tenants, and can source such apartments in various areas of Krakow.
An apartment with four bedrooms is referred to in Polish as a five room apartment, with no distinction as in English between a living room and a bedroom. Some rooms in Polish apartments often serve a dual purpose, such as a living area or study during the day and a bedroom at night.
The standard size of a four bedroom apartment in Krakow is approximately 120-150 square metres, though developers have recently begun offering new apartments in the range of 80-120 square metres with this layout. Some older style apartments will also have four bedrooms, but with an overall compact size and very small room dimensions. Occasionally, larger four bedroom apartments (often in older tenement buildings) will be between in excess of 150 square metres and very large room sizes.
Due to the increasing demand for four bedroom apartments available in Krakow, Hamilton May always has a good selection of such apartments available for rent, despite their relative scarcity. Four bedroom apartments can be rented in all parts of Krakow, from the old town to the suburbs, and in various standards, from basic to luxurious.
The price for four bedroom apartments is determined more by the location and standard of the apartment rather than the size. The average prices of four bedroom apartments in the Hamilton May offer, which are of a high standard, are generally in excess of 5000 PLN per month + administration fees and bills. A viable alternative for some tenants in Krakow is to rent a house rather than a four bedroom apartment, though houses will generally be out in the suburbs and some tenants wish to have an apartment in the city centre within walking distance of amenities and sights. In most modern developments, tenants of four bedroom apartments will also be able to rent at least one protected parking space with their apartment.
