I stayed 6 days at Hotel Helios and I must say it was an experience like going back in time to communist Poland. Whereas the hotel facilities are acceptable, the real problem are the reception middle-aged ladies who really should get a proper customer service training. I felt more like in a hall of residence or boarding school in which receptionists behaved as if they were the real bosses. Be prepared for being shouted at and interrogated which room you are in, hotel main doors being closed at 8pm with reception unattended and you being stuck in the cold as well as any of your queries (or requests) being likely to be met with patronising answers as if you were scolded by a teacher. The hotel has very good location but the ladies at the reception (especially Malgorzata) should rethink how they approach hotel guests.

Pretty basic hotel but did the job considering we weren't in the room too much. The room itself was very hot!! And considering we visiting in March when it was -2 we genuinely struggled to cool it down! The restaurant for the evenings is good prices & good food. The breakfast (that we paid extra for) was average. Good location overlooking great views though! we had to ask at reception for a hair drier as they aren't supplied in the room.

I had a single room for 6 nights inc breakfast for £110. It’s located overlooking a big park, walking distance (10 minutes) to the bus station and similar to the main shopping street. There’s a lovely restaurant and bar on site - 9 zloty beer, <20 zloty main courses. Friendly staff, most speaking really good English (my polish is very restricted). Nice room and bathroom with adequate storage and facilities. No English language TV. Light bulbs were a bit feeble. Bathroom blind covered most (but not all) of the window. Despite the minor faults, I’d definitely stay there again.

We chose this hotel for the price, location, mountain view and breakfast, and it didn't disappoint in those areas. The hotel is walking distance to the railway and bus stations, and has a couple of grocery stores nearby. The view to the mountains and the park was wonderful. The breakfast buffet was almost the same every day, but the food was tasty. We also had dinner at the restaurant once. We enjoyed our meals, and the price was more than reasonable. However, it was disappointing that the wi-fi was really poor, there was no hairdryer or a refrigerator, and the towels and bedding were threadbare. It also got bothersome to leave the room key at the front desk every time we stepped out. Electronic keys would be so much more convenient.
