“A beautiful and atmospheric apartment”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

This is simply a beautiful place and the pictures speak for themselves. The apartment that we were in was roomy and had a wonderful historic feel to it. The furniture was mostly antique and lovely. It was reasonably priced and very well located in Krakow.

The Orlowska has a perfect location, a fifteen minute walk from the train station and a block to the Main Market Square. We had the 1930's apartment, which was wonderful: it is huge, has a desk and sitting area with couch, table, and two easy chairs, and a spacious, completely equipped kitchen with a dining table and chairs. But it is the furnishings that stand out: the furniture, carpets, and paintings are beautiful, making you feel you are staying in a private home, not a hotel.

The staff are very friendly and helpful.

You must have dinner at the Cyrano de Bergerac, below the hotel. The food is absolutely delicious, equal to that of Paris, the ambiance is elegant, and the prices are unbelievably low, especially with the 10% discount for guests of the hotel.

My wife and I stayed in the Orlowska Townhouse Apartments for 15 days ending June 10. We were in the Budoir Apartment. It was outstanding, better than I expected, better than the pictures on their site. We loved the large room, the 12 ft ceilings, the large claw footed bathtub, etc. We enjoyed having the small refrigerator with freezer, microwave, electric teapot, the china and cutlery. As other reviewers have said we were only 2.5 blocks from the center square and 1.5 blocks from the nearest tram stop. Only one tram stop (ten minute walk) from both the bus station and the train station. The staff was always very pleasant and helpful. The cleaning staff spent about 40 minutes each day, cleaning the room and the bathroom, changing the bed sheets and washing the dishes. We have traveled a lot in the past 20 plus years and this was one of our favorite stays. I would recommend the Orlowska to anyone.

The Orlowska is simply a great place to stay.
No more than 5 minutes walk from the main square, with excellent, helpful , friendly staff who can't do enough for you.
Our family party of eight stayed in four ( of 6 ) different rooms - each with lots of space, unique period furniture style, modern plumbing that works ...and spotlessly clean. Rooms have kettles, sofas, fridges, safes, wifi. The security of the Town House is first class too.
We opted for the breakfast option (served in your room from 8 a.m - a real treat).
On our final day we had to leave early but a breakfast was prepared for us overnight; such wonderful service.
The Orlowska is run by a small team who obviously enjoy what they do - and are proud of it too. Try the Cyrano de Bergerac restaurant downstairs for a special dinner.
A real find... we will return.

We stayed here with another couple and on arriving early we were offered a coffee and then shown to our apartment. It was on the top floor up 4 flights of stairs but worth the climb. It was immaculate and tastefully furnished. The kitchen had everything you need to be able to cook but alas all we did was prepare breakfast too many good places to eat in Krakow. The staff were very helpful and friendly nothing was too much trouble. The only problem with this apartment was there was no door on the bedroom but on the plus sign it had its own toilet. The apartment was very secure. We did not eat in the restaurant but would do if we ever returned. Would definitely recommend this accommodation and stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: If you want to stay in the Loft Apartment just beware there are 4 flights of stairs but worth the cl...

Very friendly and helpful staff, a warm welcome, help with bags and orientation. The apartment is just lovely and beautifully clean, quiet and a good temperature. Wine in the fridge would be nice but then there are plenty of bars close by. The kitchen area seem well equipped though we never really used it. Next time we visit we will eat in the well recommended restaurant in the cellar below the apartments. The apartment is well placed for exploring this lovely city and we enjoyed our stay hugely. Happy to recommend to all.

Room Tip: Orlowska Apartment was excellent for the two of us.
