Our room was large, clean and quiet, breakfast was great with a huge selection of stuff, and the checkin and out process was easy and quick. The location is convenient for travelers, but construction outside means there are some delays. It didn't seem close to downtown Krakow. Working towel warmers and good tea in room were nice touches. We parked next to the building for free, and easily walked to a grocery store nearby. I'd stay again and recommend to others.

Hotel looks better in the photos I think it needs renovation at least bathroom and public places. Construction works during the night and location away from everything is another let down. Breakfast very basic.

Didn't clean the room (only clean once in 2 days, but they didn't warn us). We left the towels in the floor (because we wanted them changed) and when we complained they gave us towels badly folded and told us to leave the garbage in the corridor. This isn't a 4-star hotel for sure.

We had a horrible experience at Apis during our stay in December. Our trip was booked very last minute and we had a very limited choice of hotels. BEFORE YOU READ THIS REVIEW PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOU CAN GET A WAY BETTER HOTEL CLOSER TO THE CITY CENTER IF YOU BOOK EARLY.
Main problems with the hotel:
- Very thin walls. You can basically hear everything: hairdryer next door / people walking on the corridor. We had a group of kids/young teenagers staying at the same and it was just a nightmare. Having spoken to the reception about this, seems like this hotel is popular among schools/ organised tours due to the price so please expect similar issues during your stay
- Horrible breakfast (or none). - We stayed in the hotel for 7 nights and they only had few people staying in the hotel over the first 2 days therefore there was no hot food at breakfast and NO TOAST( !!). They have a very old coffee machine (horrible coffee) and food is below acceptable. Breakfast was similar to what you would expect to get when staying in the cheap hostel in London
- Extremely uncomfortable beds - Worse than travel lodge
- Bad service - I suppose what made this experience so bad for us was very bad service at reception. They acknowledged problems we encountered but nothing was done about it:
-No hot breakfast/toast - sorry hotel is quiet no-one in the kitchen
- Our room wasn't cleaned for 3 days - sorry we didn't know we will clean it tomorrow
- We had a power cut one day for around 20 minutes - Sorry we will let you know when power is back on (!!??)
I know some people enjoyed staying at this hotel, but if you decide to book it be aware that your stay might happen over the ' quiet' period and in that case don't expect to get breakfast, have your room cleaned etc.
On our last day, we came down to the reception to hand our key back and all we got was ' ok, bye' (!!?).
To summarize: This hotel is definitely not what is seems on their website and if you have a choice you can easily get a better hotel closer to the city centre.

Some of my vegetarian friends got 2 oranges served on a plate for dessert at this hotel. 2 oranges. They didn't even make a nice fruit salad or something out of said oranges.
The hotel website is also very misleading!!! The rooms showed in the website are only on the first floor. The rest of the floors look different to the pictures on the website, so please beware.
In conclusion, I highly doubt that this hotel is a four-star one. At most, maybe a 2 star. Maybe if every other hotel is booked then go to this one. Otherwise, please go somewhere else!

We checked in late in the night. As there was no triple available they offered us a two room suite for the price of the triple.
Beds were very soft and confortable, with 2 big pillows for each one of us.
Bathroom was extremely modern and clean
Wish I coyld stay more nights but they were full.
Excellent and friendly personel.
The building is modern and there is a small guarded (as everywhere in Poland) parking lot in the front.
The hotel is a little away from Stary Miasto, the city center.
