Hi, this is my first post to Polish Forums.
Hope I'm not rehashing something that's been discussed several times before. I'm planning on taking a semester in Warsaw in the spring of 2010, probably at Collegium Civitas. I'm not doing it through a study abroad program; I'll just be enrolling myself and finding a place to live because it seems cheaper to do it that way than to pay $13000 USD to a study abroad agency. My parents are both Polish and though Polish was my first language, I grew up in the US and my Polish isn't really that great. I can get by OK conversationally, though it's difficult for me to read Polish.
Anyway. I've been checking out various sites advertising flats. I'm not interested in a dorm or a shared living situation. I know that it costs significantly more if you want to rent a flat alone. Because I'm only going to Warsaw for about five months, though, I'd really need a place that was already furnished: bed, appliances, kitchen with pots and pans, fridge, etc. It doesn't have to be a big flat, though. A little studio would be perfectly fine for me.
Most of the sites I've found that advertised furnished flats are highly pricey, with rent of 1000 euro and up... geared towards vacationers. Ideally I'd like to find a place somewhere around 1500-2000 PLN per month. 1000 PLN would be awesome but I somehow doubt I can find one that cheap close to the metro in Warsaw.
Does anyone know of any good websites (preferably English but Polish is okay) that advertise furnished flats for students and others staying temporarily,... at a reasonable rate?
I have dealt with many students from Collegium Civitas who came from the US. Three with Polish roots. C C knows me very well and I can send you references if you need.
I can offer you studio apartments, fully furnished and secured. Excellent connectivity to the center and within 15-20 minutes travel time to C C.
Prices from 1800 to 2200 zlotys a month. For a bit more you could even have an apartment in the heart of the Old Town. Walking distance to CC. Prices include all costs including water, electricity, heating and Internet. No hidden extras.
You can write to me for more details. It helps to book early. I do not work on advance payments and you are not obliged to hire if you are not satisfied with what you see finally.
With best regards,
