A few weeks ago I did a blog post about Torun, Poland. I LOVE Torun, it is absolutely a beautiful city with lots of history. So, when I was offered to do a hotel review of one of the new hotels there, my husband and I jumped at the offer. While Torun is really not that far from us it was nice to be able to spend more than a couple of hours there and not to have to hurry up and go back home to either beat the traffic or to get home at a decent hour for the kids bed time, it was great to spend a relaxing trip there.
Vistula Apartments in Torun is where we stay the weekend.
Yes, it is not a hotel room but an apartment. As I mentioned in a previous post, I LOVE apartments verses hotel rooms because of the size of our family. Well this apartment(s) lived up to our hopes! We actually got 2 connecting apartments, one for us and one for the kids. The location was great as well as we could walk 5 minutes and we were in the city center! The staff there was AWESOME! As I had to try to find an open weekend because of my husbands work schedule which was not easy that time of year but they told us what events were happening to help us make the most of the trip!
Since they are apartments we gave them a call about an hour before we came(just like most apartment rentals) and when we got there, they were there waiting for us! There is no lobby so they just met us in the front the building.
When we got to our floor they told us we had 2 rooms to give us a bit more room. Now we not very picky so we could have got by with 1 room but it was nice have room for the kids to play especially since I think that was the coldest weekend we have had here in Poland! (I am getting goosebumps just thinking about it!) Each room had a door going out to the hallway but there was also a door inside joining the two.
The rooms were great! Now here is the not so good part of the hotel, lack of parking. We had to use street parking. We have stayed in other places where the nearest parking spot was 5 blocks away(Brugge, Belgium for one!) but luckily these apartments are on a quite street so there is LOTS of parking spots!!!
Yes, I was given these rooms for free in return for this review but I will say that we have stayed at several different hotels and apartments over the years here in Poland and other countries, I have to say the staff one of the friendliest we have ever met. There English was perfect, so it was nice not to have the language barrier for a change. They were very familiar with restaurants, with attractions and just about everything of Torun. The rooms where great and if we decide to make a weekend of Torun again, we will for sure be staying here.
So have here is the scoop of what Vistula Apartments has to offer…..
