My wife, 13 year old son and I spent two evenings at the Hotel Zubrowka in July, 2010. The hotel is adequate, not more.
We had the hotel's Presidential Suite. It had two bedrooms and a decent sized living room. There were two "bathrooms" -- one with a sink, tub/shower and bidet, and one with a sink, shower and toilet. Odd -- why not have two toilets?
Although Bialowieza town is immediately adjacent to the forest area, no one in Poland appears to have appreciated the need for screens on windows. As a result, even though the weather was warm, one couldn't open the windows at any point in the evening when the lights were on, lest the room fill with a phalanx of mosquitos. There was no air conditioning in our room -- some parts of the hotel have it, although it seems to work only when the weather is cool enough for it not to be needed. Our traveling companion commented on the need to open her window at night since her air conditioning was leaving her room sweltering.
The suite had reasonably decent furnishings -- a comfortable couch and easy chair in the living room, and a dining table with four chairs. There was also a small bar. All the rooms were well lit (so you could read easily while the windows were closed and you sweated).
The linens were fair, but all the pillows were foam. Again, based upon stays at 5 hotels in Poland, of classes 3 star to 5 star, feather pillows appear not to be available in the country.
Although the public areas of the hotel are spacious, on our first night for some reason most of them were kept in the dark, and the bar area completely blackened. On the second night, the dark areas were lit and the bar open, which made the place a little less spooky.
The wife and son reported that the pool area (although entirely inside) was quite nice, with some cool water features built into the pool area.
Service was reasonable at the desk -- the shower in one of our baths wasn't working correctly, and when I said something it was fixed before we got back from breakfast.
On the other hand, even thought the hotel was only at about 30% occupancy, our room was not made up by 3pm -- I feared we had been forgotten, and said something, and it was made up within 30 minutes after that.
The restaurant was poorly lit. The breakfast, on the other hand, quite good. Dinner was decent, not great.
For whatever reason, although this is a fairly rural setting, the hotel has a pay lot for parking. I forget the charge -- whatever it was it was too much for something that should be free. Bialowieza isn't Manhattan.
As we got ready to leave, and took my suitcase to the exit nearest our room, since my car was parked close by. The emergency exit was securely locked! So, if you stay in this hotel, be sure to have a ground floor window you can jump out of.
The fire safety issue aside, this hotel is adequate. It probably is worth staying here to see the forest area, if no other lodging in the area appeals to you. Just know that this is a basic hotel, without much in the way of ambience or comfort.
