We had a wild one last New Year’s Eve. Sat in a local bar enjoying exactly two Old Fashioneds each before heading home to bed, we plotted for 2019. We talked home renovation, career plans and holidays. Unsurprisingly, the only one of those we actually saw through in its entirety is the last. Somehow, we ended up hunting for the best Airbnbs in Wroclaw!
We talked about Cornwall (I’d never been) and C sold me so thoroughly on St Ives’ that we booked an Airbnb there and then over our whisky. And we decided in that moment to make this a New Year’s Eve tradition for us. Then in the darkest depths of winter, on this night that neither of us particularly like, we booked a cheap and cheerful weekend break to get through January.

We poured over the app to shortlist the very best Airbnbs in Wroclaw.
How to find the best Airbnbs in Wroclaw
Wroclaw sits on the Over River in Western Poland. It sees fewer visitors than Warsaw, Krakow and Gdansk, but is completely beautiful, and bursting with historic sites. The medieval market square is one of the biggest in Europe with elegant, colourful townhouses. And there’s an amazing food scene and varied culture, from Gothic cathedrals to a political street art movement.
So, while I’m researching the best Airbnbs in Wroclaw, I thought I’d share some of my shortlist here.
The original features in this renovated tenement building are breathtaking, from the coving and panelling to the herringbone floor. It’s certainly one of the best Airbnbs in Wroclaw. Then there’s a traditional kitchenette, perfect for coffee-brewing (which, if your weekend breaks are anything like mine, is the most you’ll ever do in your kitchen!), and a cosy mezzanine bedroom.
