#3 of 7 in Szczawnica
In the heart of the picturesque Pieniny, you will find a truly extraordinary place. It was created almost 150 years ago, by the propagator of a healthy lifestyle and Piennial culture - Józef Szalaja - Hotel Batory. It is here that you will feel the atmosphere of a place with a soul that combines stylish interiors and a passion for tradition and art. In one of the hotel rooms, the Polish Nobel Prize winner Henryk Sienkiewicz wrote his extremely subtle novel "Wiry". The unique atmosphere of the place is also the closeness of the Pieniny nature. The morning chirping of birds from the nearby spa park and the cuisine of the Batory Restaurant, drawing from the flavors of the region, will make the rest take on a new meaning!

Staff were very friendly, proffessional and above all very courteous. Hotel was spotlessly clean. Breakfast buffet was amazing every morning with a great selection fresh produce. Would gladly return again.

I am a would-be guest of this hotel. My relationship with this facility ended at the stage of booking and collecting 470 zlotys for it 'according to the regulations'. The cancellation was made a few days before arrival. I do not recommend booking, because if your plans change, no matter for what random reasons, you will be charged the accommodation fee. And someone else can rent the same room at the same time. In this case, it was happily only one night. I advise against the risk. But you will be politely informed many times 'that nothing can be done'.

Very good hotel, located on a hill few minutes walk from center of Szczawnica, with very clean and modern interiors, excellent breakfast and covid precautions in place. When we were there hotel restaurants were still closed due to covid restrictions and breakfast was served directly to the hotel room. Highly recommended.

Nice location as a base for hiking. Good food with excellent brrakfast. Large room. No coffee in room or available upon request. Room amenities could use an upgrade. Unexpected additional charges for parking and climate tax at checkout.

Nice clean, quiet room, no elevator, about 5-10 min. walk from center up a hill, adjacent to vacant old buildings, Staff was polite. We paid for a travel package through a agency and were disappointed that with our included dinner there was NO choice of meal- just the one mediocre meal served. The menu was whisked away. We felt like second class customers because of this. When I ordered a beverage I was told it was extra. As I needed to drink to stay hydrated, i of course paid for and got my beverage. It would be nice if a glass of water was served, but in most of Europe that is not the case. Still, a complimentary drink with the meal would have been nice. I wouldn't go back.

This was a nice hotel in a relatively quiet neighborhood. There are some nice walking paths nearby and an easy walk to restaurants, etc. The rooms were adequate - though as in most of the hotels we experience in Poland, no air conditioning. This could be quite warm for sleeping. Breakfast was very good and the staff very accommodating.

We stayed at Batory during our package walking holiday in July. Although the rooms are on the small side (but then again we had all our walking gear with us), we found them to be very clean and comfortable. The best about the hotel is their cuisine, however. Dinner was of a very high standard, with fine and delicate flavours and the breakfast buffet enormous and sumptuous, again with something to cater for everybody. Would highly recommend!

The staff were fairly good. . . That’s the good news. The room was dingy, small & badly ventilated with a musty smell (no air conditioning but just a full opening window would have been great) The bathroom was needlessly huge & the floor of which always wet for hours after even a quick shower. The ‘included evening meal’ was horrific, we weren’t given any choice, just presented with 3 courses, 1 worse than the other (most of which also appeared next morning on the breakfast buffet, I’m not kidding) from ‘Starter to Desserts’ took 15 mins to lash it out to us, they were in a hurry 🙄we went down town next night. Breakfast was poor both mornings and finally . . The bar was closed by 9pm . . . I’ve never given 1* before

The reception staff are very nice and friendly people. We were quite unlucky when we entered the hotel, as we heard we needed to wait for the check-in till 15-15:30. We wanted to spend the time at the restaurant, where we heard they didn't serve any food as they were having larger groups to be served food on time. That was very weird, akward and unpleasant, however the gentleman at the reception did the things right again. He did more than he was obliged to, which is very much appreciated! When it comes to the restaurant, apart from the bad start, the food is excellent! The dishes are all locally made and the taste was fantastic!!! We will stay there again!
