“bad experience”
Reviewed 4 December 2010

I did not like the hotel at all. The main reason was the reception staff, who was unfriendly, unhelpful and unapproachable. The room was furnished in a bad taste and the sink in the bathroom was leaking. The hotel is located near the main street, is cheep and the breakfast was ok, so if it wasn't for the bad experience with the lobby staff, my review would be much higher.

Reviewed 3 September 2010

If you want budget accommodation that is close to town with a simple but adequate breakfast, this is the hotel for you. It’s a five minute walk through the park to the main part of town and as far as I can tell most rooms have views of the mountains. Yes the décor is somewhat dated, the beds where a bit hard and small, but it was clean. The staff were friendly and willing to give information freely. Highly recommend for the budget traveller.

Reviewed 5 March 2010

This hotel i priced as a hostel but appears as a very good 3-stars hotel with a very good Italian restaurant where also an excellent breakfast is served! Located in a park means no trafic noice. If you are located on the 2nd or 3rd floor, you don't even have to draw the curtains and can view the Tatras day and night. Free WiFi on all floors, walking distance to railway/bus-staion and center of the city. What more can be said? I was travelling single, but was already upgraded to a double room when I arrived. Be aware: The single rooms are small compared to the relatively spacious dobles..

Reviewed 17 December 2009

I stayed 4 times during summer 2009 at the Hotel Helios. The location is great, the views are nice from both sides of the hotel. If you can get a north facing room, you will have a perfect view of the High Tatras peaks. The hotel is simple but clean & tidy, reception staff were always friendly. You pay less for the 3rd rooms as the lift doesn't access the floor. The breakfast was well above what you would expect to get in a 2* Polish hotel. Always good to help you recover from a lively night in Zakopane and a demanding hike ahead of you in the High Tatras.
