“Great place to stay”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Stayed in the 4 bedroom apartment which sleeps up to 10. The apartments are massive with 4 huge bedrooms with comfy beds and good quality duvets. The living area is massive with a well equipped kitchen and there is a large bathroom with jacuzzi bath and a separate shower room/toilet. The apartment is on the 3rd floor and is served with an ancient but fast and reliable lift. If you don't want to take the lift the steps are not steep at all. The place is very clean and has a shabby chic appeal so if you are looking for perfect paintwork go elsewhere. Great location and very friendly staff.

Cons: Living area could do with more comfy seats. Sheets too small for beds and could not be properly tucked in. Tea/coffee/sugar should be replenished on a daily basis as you are paying nearly £180 per night.

Only small complaints to be fair and overall a great place to stay in Krakow

Very nice appartmenthotel located a few minutes from rynek glowny. Staff is very nice and the appartments are clean and very nice. No elevator but thats part of the charm. You feel the history in the walls...good buffet- breakfast that gave you a lot of different choises. Did not cost much either. I have already started recommending this hotel to my friends and I will stay here again!! If you dont stay here,at least chech out the hotel restaurant Skandale Royal. Nice staff and good drinks and food.

Had few problems with apartments in a safety way. Moved to three apartments.beware of the stairs there is no lift so if u have walking issues it may be best to make them aware. I have commend the staff for all thr help and service through the problems we had plus the discount we got. I will say it did loss of half a day of our staff moving rooms etc. Not the best way to spend your birthday.

The apartments are in a great location just off the Main Square and were clean and spacious. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. We were in Room 31 and the only downside was the 10 flights of stairs we had to climb everytime we went to our room - there is no lift. Breakfast is served in the Scandale Royale bar next door and it was a nice buffet with plenty of options.

But BEWARE there are a number of pickpockets who operate in this location and I was unfortunate to be mugged by one in the entrance alleyway. The alleyway leads from the Plac Szczepanski to the hotel courtyard and the pickpockets used this to isolate me and steal my money. It happened in seconds and they were obviously experienced. When I reported what happened to the hotel reception and local police I got the distinct impression this wasn't an isolated incident. The pickpockets are generally 2 women opeating together and their 'trick' is to ask for a light for a cigarette they have in their mouth. Whilst you are giving them a light, or as in my case saying you don't smoke, they come close into you and rifle through your pockets. Please watch out for this if you visit Krakow as it did spoil my break.

Room Tip: Room 31 is at the top of 10 flights of stairs and there is no lift

My husband and I stayed at Antique Apartments in April. Antique have various apartments in the city, ours was a studio in the Plac Szczepański building which is also the location of the office and reception.

The location was fantastic, just a couple of streets away from the main square with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. Krakow is a small city so you can easily walk between the main tourist attractions.

The studio was compact but had everything we could need for a short break. The kitchenette was very handy for preparing drinks and snacks. The bed was large and comfortable and the studio was very clean. Like another reviewer, we did not have hot water when we arrived but once informed the staff were quick to sort this out for us. There was some renovation work happening on the building during our stay but did not not affect us.

All in all I would highly recommend Antique Apartments!

Spacious, modern, clean, reception staff friendly and helpful. Excellent location, very central and a gorgeous bistro next door called Charlotte's. We had a problem with the hot water, we informed staff and they rectified the problem straight away. .Will stay there again when we return to Poland.
