We stayed here for 3 nights as a group of 14.
We booked all the rooms out in the apartments and were all on the same floor. This was ideal for our needs.
The hotel is in a great location to the main square and a short walk away to the castle and river banks.
The hotel has a few steps to get up to the correct floor but once you have taken your bags up the stairs you don't notice them.
The rooms are very modern and kept spotlessly clean. We must have made some noise when coming in at 3am as there are locals living in apartments downstairs but there didn't seem to be any back lash!
Just be aware that the coffee and water in the room is not complementary and we were charged at check out! The cost was very little and we had not read any of the literature in the room though.
All in all I would recommend these apartments as check in was smooth, the location was excellent and the staff on reception were also very helpful when asking about the trips we had pre-booked.xx

We stayed there for one night. Lovely place, very nice design of the rooms, very nice hospitality, walking distance to old market. The only minus- no parking, but hotel commanded something near by. Will stay there again!

What a great find in the centre of Krakow. Very reasonable, brand new stylish apartments. They are a short walk from the main square and central to all attractions.

Be aware you have to climb stairs to get to it but I think it added to the charm, opening the doors to the apartments was a lovely surprise, don't be put off by the bleak staircase!

The staff couldn't do enough for us. Very helpful and friendly.

Room was a 1 bedroom suite, very stylish, good shower and comfortable sitting room. I would have liked to see the towels changed daily and milk available in the fridge in the apartment (you had to get it from the main kitchen which meant getting ready in a morning before breakfast) but it was no big deal. I asked for more pillows and they were in the room when we returned

Breakfast was simple but adequate, good coffee and juice provided at a small charge.

There was a complementary bottle of sparkling red wine in the room on arrival for my husbands birthday, lovely touch.

Overall I would recommend Novum House, the staff, the rooms and the location are well worth a visit.

Great job Novum House we had a lovely time!

Room Tip: Get a room facing inward to the courtyard, much quieter

Excellent location on the edge of the old town, just a few minutes walk to Rynek Glówny the main square. Good sized double room with comfortable bed and pillows. Excellent bathroom with lots of hot water, large heated towel rail. Very good free Wi-Fi. Excellent value for money as are most things in Kraków. Let's hope it stays that way.

There were a lot of stairs up to the second floor apartments but then we knew that before we went. Grotty building from the outside but we knew that as well. Very regular flow of trams outside which meant a bit of noise and some vibration but they don't run all night.

Well renovated apartment in an typical old building. Short walk to town centre and public transport. We used the shared kitchen to make our breakfast but the ones you could order looked great.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
O.K. if you are in the front of the building as we were, you can hear the rumble of the trams in the street below when they start up in the morning but that is part of being in Central Europe for me and not a nuisance.
Found it easily enough. The entrance is not glamorous but persevere and it really is a lovely place to stay. There are even some student type places to eat nearby as it is so near the University.

My sister and I stayed at Novum House Apartments for 4 nights on our first visit to the beautiful city of Krakow. Novum House is located opposite the University a 5 minute walk through the beautiful old University buildings to the Main Square, which had a large Christmas Market while we were there. The apartments are in an old building but have been renovated in a wonderful contemporary style. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms exceptional, with extra touches like scented oils, slippers, heated towel rails. Thank you to Thomas and Raphael who went out of their way to ensure our stay was a pleasant one. Breakfast was served to our rooms each morning and was a plentiful selection of breads, pastries, meat, cheese, yoghurt, fruit and vegetables with freshly percolated coffee. The apartments are located on the second floor of the building with no lift, so don't take a very heavy suitcase! I would highly recommend Novum House and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We had rooms 2 & 3 which adjoin each other with a common foyer. They overlooked the University w...
