Nordic House Apartments
Ranked #156 of 261 Hotels in Krakow
Reviewed February 25, 2012

We returned from Poland last weekend. The Nordic House apartments are in a fantastic location, just off the main square but in a quiet street offering good value for money. The room were huge and very comfortable, an excellent bathroom with a large shower and plenty of hot water. The only downside would be that the apartments are on the 2nd floor and there is no lift, so not suitable for anybody with mobility or breathing difficulties. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the security was good. Breakfast was plentiful consisting of fruit juice and tea or coffee, yoghurt, rolls with ham and cheese and a boiled egg. It definitely set you up for the day; we were not getting too hungry until about 4pm. There is also a very nice restaurant next door, a proper restaurant downstairs and a kind of salad bar at ground level. Both were good but the salad bar was excellent and very reasonable in price.

There is plenty to see and do with lots of restaurants and cafes in the close vicinity. We picked up a free walking tour on day one to get our bearings and pick up general information. We'd already planned to do Auschwitz-Birkenau, the salt mines and Schindlers Museum but we added to that the museum under the main square, which we knew nothing about until the walking tour. This was very interesting and interactive which made understanding it very easy if you speak English or Polish. As a group of four (two couples) we found it cheaper to arrange our tours by taxi but there are plenty of places where you can book tours or ask the hotel staff to do it for you. They also have deals with some of the restaurants and if they book your table for you you'll get a free drink or similar included in the price.

Overall Poland still offers good value for money generally and I thought the Nordic Apartments were great.

Nordic House Apartments are, literally, less than one hundred metres from the very centre of Krakow, yet the neighbourhood was very quiet. There are many excellent cafés and restaurants in the streets around the Market Square (Rynek Glowny).
The apartment was basically furnished, but by no means shabby; plenty of hot water in a superb modern bathroom. The main room has a writing desk, wardrobe, armchairs, TV and, of course, a bed - which was very comfortable. Well heated and with a small balcony, the room gave the basic comforts at a very reasonable cost.
If there is a downside it is that the apartment is on the second floor and there is no elevator. An ample breakfast is served in the basement so it is advisable to get ready for going out before coming down in the mornings. It will save your legs!
All in all, well worth thinking about.

Just returned from a four day break in Krakow.
The Nordic House Appartments offer exceptional value for money, and are in a very central location in Krakow.
The staff were very pleasant and helpfull, the room was all you could ask for. The breakfast was satisfactory.
If you have a mobility problem due to the number of stairs involved to get access to the rooms, the Nordic House is not for you..
The TV channels left a bit to be desired, it would be a bonus if they could get more western channels including Sky.
I plan to return later this year.
Thank you to all the staff at the Nordic House Appartments.

We stayed there last week with friends, rooms were huge and very comfy. breakfast was served by a lovely pleasant young girl who was impressed by our attempts at a few Polish words.Only 5 mins. walk to the main square, with it's lovely bars and restaurants, and the market hall is great for buying gifts especially Baltic Amber.
Only downside was the stairs to get up and down to our rooms,and the very very hard towels .
City tours were great and informative, A visit to the Saltmine is interesting but involves lots of walking.We would reccommend these apartments to friends.

Room Tip: looking on to the front they have small balconys with chairs and not noisy due to the double windows...

This hotel has a wonderful location, very close to the Old Town Square. I believe there is no other apartment/hotel so well located for the price charged. The room is really big and the staff very kind.
As it is an apartment, when you arrive you get the keys for the room and for the street door. Also, the office and the staff is not avaible all the time, but you receive an emergency phone number.
The breakfast is good.
The only problem is that the room is very hot on summer. There is a fan in the room, but it was a little bit noisy. Even so, if I go back to Krakow someday, I'd stay on Nordic House again.
