My wife and I arrived at Zakopane bus station from Krakow on a drizzly afternoon....there was no information office and the first four cab drivers we asked had never heard of Tatra Chalet, maybe our pronounciation was not clear..but eventually we found someone who knew where it was situated. All changed for the best when we were met by Grazyna, the manageress...gorgeous room and lovely bathroom.The walk into town is advertised as 20 minutes but we are both pretty fi and took 30 minutes..as weather had improved we took the funicular railroad up to the top of some mountain, great views,..dinner was marvelous, they have an excellent young chef who not only cooks very well but he really presents the food in a wonderful manner, he will go far! After a huge breakfast we hiked up to a waterfall, around an hour from the chalet, we then had a lovely fresh soup for lunch and unfortunately we had to leave. It was so quiet and for us it was so much more pleasant than staying in town..Ok the odd taxi ride for $5 but it was certainly worth it. Grazyna and her team are highly professional and it would be very difficult to find anything not to ones satisfaction..the only slight disappoint was there were no Polish wines on the wine list and we had drunk a pleasant Polish wine in Krakow the night before...we were told they were too young...but I would prefer to drink a not quite aged Polish wine than an Italian or French I can drink anywhere in the world.
Keep up the great work!
