“Location, luxury and value that can't be beaten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2010

We have just stayed for three nights in the Orlowska apartment. The position in the Old Town is very good - close to everything you would want to see; the apartment is nothing short of stunning - wonderfully furnished and equipped with everything one would want, (and more): the service from Elisabeth is extremely good (but brush up on your French) and the value makes staying at a hotel a senseless ecercise.

Look at the website - it is absolutely true to the reality. The quality of furnishing and kitchen and bathroom equipment is up there with 5 star hotels. Yes the keys are a little cumbersome, but the place locks up like Fort Knox - just watch youir head as you go down the stairs and hope that you remember where the hall light switch is. But overall an A+ recommendation from us.

I would most certainly recommend staying at Orlowska Townhouse. The room we stayed in was beautifully appointed, which was titled The Boudoir Apartment.

The only problem being that Elisabeth who runs the place and also owns both the restaruants under the apartments only speaks French, and for us it was a little hard to locate her when we arrived. Also when we left we had to just leave the keys in the apartment as it was a Sunday and Easter Sunday at that, so no one was a
round, and all was in darkness!

We were left a little gift, as we stayed over the Easter period , a cake and two little eggs were left for us which was really a very sweet touch.

Really to sum it all up If you want a change from boring hotel accomadation, and don't mind having to brush up on your pigeon french then this wonderful apartment is for you. Big and beautiful with grace and old world charm! Also in a great location just a few steps away from the main old market square. There is no contest.

Just returned from an exccellent three night stay in the Orlowska Townhouse Apartments and the whole stay couldn't have been better. Ideal location just off the main square of Rynek Glowny and within striding distance of The Planty-the tree lined pathway which surrounds the old town, ~4kms all the way round. You can reach all the places of interest from the Planty.
We had booked the accommodation via the internet and had arranged to hire the Loft Apartment which sleeps 5, although 3 if you want separate beds! The apartment is large and roomy, with antique furnishings mixed with wall hangings and tasteful pictures. Great selection of CD's to play as well. There is a fantastic art deco inspired spiral staircase leading from the sitting/dining room up to the mezzanine level and further bedroom, bath and toliet....comfortable beds and cool sheets! The layout is a lttile strange but suited us fine. Everything had been thought of, especially in the incredibly well resourced kitchen...it had everything! The host Elizabeth speaks french, she is french, and she and her husband run the Cyrano de Bergerac restaurant in the basement, also well worth a visit but take a full wallet! We were on the top floor, which was something of a climb, but worth it. My only quibble was that there were no windows on the split level which opened to let in fresh air, although there is air conditioning and the central heating was well up to keeping the freezing cold Cracow night out. We had breakfast brought up to us one morning, delicious pancakes and honey, for 25zl. Can'r recommend these apartments highly enough and they givesyou so much more space for less money than a hotel might...a maid comes in and services the apartment each day so you feel really looked after.

We stayed in a huge old-style apartment, done out in opulent style - large bed, roll-top bath on a plinth, massive sofa, floor to ceiling windows looking out over the courtyard.

The location is perfect, right near the main square. Downstairs is a great French restaurant, Cyrano de Bergerac.

Just returned from a 3night stay at the boudoir aptment in Orlowska townhouse.
Stunning decor in a very beautiful period style room, with a fab roll top bath antique furniture and a modern twist of fridge /freezer s/steel not wood in the room.
A super snug bed and plentiful linen to keep you warm.
Strangee key set up with double locks in the room plus on entering the townhouse as well,not good when the cherry vodka has been drunk in copious amounts.
Overall a cracking place to stay,the host/hostess very warm and very french so brush up on it...Try the restaurant its pure class but slightly pricey enjoy.. Jim

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment at number 6, it is fantastic ! minutes to the main square Rynek Glowny, within easy walking distance to the bus and train station and the shopping centre. The Apartment is decorated to a very high standard with everything you could possibly want, toiletries, hairdryer,iron, in fact nothing is overlooked it even had everysort of tea bag and asprin ! The owners are lovely and really made us welcome, although would recommend you brush up your French, ours is lousy but we managed ! We have already told our friends about the apartments and would will definately book again !

Perfect location, walking distance to all Krakow attractions. Beautifully restored apartments, each with its own style and charm, with care for smallest details (as original china, natural bed clothing for instance) and fully equipped with everything one can need on the trip. Home atmosphere thanks to the great owners and staff. Substantial breakfast on request to your room. Great place to stay and to feel home away from home.
And there is excellent restaurant, too: Cyrano de Bergerac.
