Reviewed August 23, 2013

We were there for a family wedding so our party rented all the apartments. The staff could not be more helpful in catering to all our needs. The apartments are spacious and beautifully furnished. The only problem is if you sleep with your windows open then it can be noisy as the apartments are very close to the busy main square. But the rooms are air-conditioned so it is possible to keep your windows closed and to shut out the noise.Krakow is a beautiful city and if we go there again we'll certainly stay at Orlowska.

We were so close, and yet so far. OK our satnav had packed up and we'd just driven 7 hours from Prague, so we just called the apartment. Three minutes later, the receptionist had found us, jumped into the car and directed us the three streets to the apartment. Just as well: I'd never have found this little gem, right in the centre of the old town.

But the service did not end there: burly blokes to help us with the bags (and we needed them) three flights of stairs, as promised in the brochure are a lot more intimidating in the flesh.

The apartment itself is well fitted out, with everything you would expect: good TV channels in many languages, Wi-Fi, comfy sofas, beds etc. Kids said, 'wow - this is the sort of apartment I'm going to have when I move to NYC'. So, thumbs up there.

The apartment has a michelin 2 star restaurant on the ground floor. Thinking this would be pricy, we ate in the main square: mistake! OK the food around Cracow's main square is OK but you pay a premium (after all, you are a tourist). The second night we 'treated' ourselves to the cellar restaurant. Fantastic! Delicious, great service wine everything exceeded our expectations except....the bill. It was cheaper than eating on the square!

Great place great stay, will be back.

We had a wonderful time during our stay. Krakow is beautiful and so full of life. We were very pleased with our apartment and the staff, mainly Ewelina who helped us out with everything from helping us to get around Krakow , arranging tours, to even mailing out our postcards. We loved our time in both Krakow and our stay at the Orlowksa Townhouse. We hope to stay again in the future.

We were on holiday from New Zealand, staying in Krakow for four nights in early August 2013. We found ourselves in a situation not of our own making upon arrival in Krakow, thanks to the airline we flew with "mislaying" our two suitcases. The staff at the Orlowska complex were really helpful and understanding, and followed up with the airline as to how far away our luggage was, and even offered to pick them up from the airport when they arrived! They eventually arrived by courier at 2pm the next day. The room was amazing, full of atmosphere and antique furniture. It was large with plenty of room to move. As others have said, we had little success with getting the IPad operating with the WiFi, and the taps made some strange noises when turned on, but overall it was a fantastic place to stay. There was a security door half way up the stairs (no lift) which was opened by typing in a password, and the door to our apartment was opened with TWO locks! We ate at the restaurant in the cellar most nights we were there (10% discount) and this was incredible (candlelit and full of history). The service and food were excellent. Handy to all amenities and a short walk to all of the local "attractions" and the old Market Square just down the street. When we left, the staff organised a taxi for us, which turned out to be a Mercedes luxury sedan, but the same cost as other taxis. If you want somewhere different to stay in Krakow, you cannot do better than the Orlowska Townhouse. Highly recommended.

Rooms are beautifully decorated with antique furniture. And very spacious!!! We stayed in the Boudoir room. Unfortunately we could not use terrace over garden due to construction, but it looked like a cute place to sit outside too.
Excellent location. Can't fault anything. Immaculate and charming!

the Orlowska apartment was beautiful, spacious, comfortable and looked out onto the most charming cobble stoned street in the old town. There are countless excellent eateries of different price ranges nearby. The staff were always incredibly helpful and friendly.
The only possible negative thing was the WiFi generally didn't work in the room. As we were always out and about and most eateries had free WiFi, this was not a problem for us.
We would highly recommend Orlowska apartment.

We stayed in the Orlowska apartment and couldn't have been happier. It is spacious and beautiful. Kitchen is wonderfully appointed, bathroom is fresh and modern and the living areas furnished in antiques. The bed is comfortable with beautiful bed linens. To our surprise, it was cleaned daily by a diligent staff. We didn't expect that in an 'apartment' setting.
The best part though, are the three young ladies that run this establishment. Klaudia, Ewelina and Gosha were the friendliest, most helpful staff we have encountered anywhere in our travels. Not only are they thoroughly professional and knowledgeable, but they were willing to go out of their way to help this non-Polish speaking couple. They were assisted by helpful Andrew, who hauled our luggage. The Main Square is only 3 short blocks away, there is an inexpensive breakfast and pierogi restaurant immediately next door, and a wonderful French restaurant, the Cyrano de Bergerac, in the basement, as well as a wonderful milkbar on the same block. We could happily live there. Do not pass up Orlowska, you won't find better accomodations in Krakow!
