Toilets and showers could be found in a... More

The refuge is on the banks of a mountain lake, surrounded by cliffs of a small glacial cirque. You can walk in an hour and a half. The kitchen is rustic, as in every shelter, but there is a decent selection and the dishes are good. If you want to sleep it is better to book the room.

I've been there couple of years ago during the summer. The atmosphere, the air, the food, the low prices, the lake just outside of the building, the scenery reminding of the one from Lord of The Rings... I'm absolutely in love. I will be back for sure.

First time I visit Samotnia I knew this will be my stomping ground in Poland and I will be here very often. This place have very unique character and air around it. Even if you are visiting Samotnia for the first time for some reason you feel like you would be visiting a house of an old friend. Everyone is... More

The most magical place in Poland! Wonderful food, great atmosphere, a trip back in time in a good sense. The location is splendid with mountains overlooking the lake. Great for hiking, various trails in the area - easy ones even for small kids and those for more experienced hikers.

This lodge is situated on a splendid location. The meals were very good; just what you need after a walk of 20 km through the mountains. The sanitary is collective, but clean. However, the beds were dreadful: very hard and extremely old and worn out. The mattresses were connected to the bed. And...we had unexpected guests in our beds: the... More

This is my favorite mountain chalet in polish karpaty mountains. Conditions in the room are not so sophisticated, but this hotel has specific, very unique atmosphere. Especially you need to spent an evening in chalet's bar, where one can drink beer and listening a guitar. Beatiful view to the mountain. The only minus, for common bathroom and toilets.
