“wow!!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

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!

We've had an amazing stay at Tatra Chalet. The staff was so friendly and welcoming, the location was amazing, close to town center and very close to the entrance to the valleys.
The room was beautiful and very clean, bathroom was very spacious with a shower that could fit four! The White Company cosmetics and candles were a very nice finishing touches.
Having the curtains pulled in the evening and bed side lights switched on was a really nice touch.
Breakfasts were superb. The French Toasts were to die for.
Really enjoyed the stay and will definitely be back for longer!

We booked purely on the basis of TripAdvisor recommendations, and were not disappointed. This is a real gem of a hotel, with comfortable and spacious rooms (mostly in a 'junior suite' format), friendly and helpful staff, and lots of little touches of unexpected luxury - White Company toiletries, a choice of good champagnes (served in the room with complimentary canapés), and so forth.

Like other reviewers, we loved the distinctive selection of goodies at breakfast, the great bread and ultra-freshly squeezed juices. When we returned unexpectedly for lunch one day, the staff produced some delicious little cheese-and-ham open sandwiches, to be washed down with cold local beer in the sunny patio area. The strawberry margaritas are highly recommended! And the soups were uniformly good. The main weakness was that main courses were sometimes over-cooked and often (unusual in Poland) slightly lacking in flavour - a tad more seasoning or sauce would have helped. But that's a very minor flaw, wholly outweighed by all the plus points.

We had a very pleasant stay at Tatra Chalet; delicious breakfast in the morning (not a typical hotel style food, but prepared and presented with a real attention to detail), sauna and outdoor jacuzzi in the evening ... Staff always happy to help. Fantastic hotel!

me and my girlfriend checked in after a long days travelling to the beautiful Zakopane.
the staff member Bartek ( i hope thats how you spell his name !) was an extremely kind generous host. he gave us a short tour of all the facilities and showed us to our room. upon arriving at the room he asked if we would like a romantic meal for two, to which we agreed. he said the chef here did the best fish around, he was not wrong !
it was a beautifully presented melt in your mouth fillet of Dory with sautéed vegetables and a cream sauce... this was to die for !
furthermore he converted the study area next to the restaurant floor into a private room for me and my girlfriend which was simply amazing!
I can't wait to return to Zakopane and the Tatra chalet, great spa facilities and food and comfort for a fraction of the cost of many other resorts....
a Truly unique hotel!

Stayed for three nights with family of adults, mid-December. Lots of snowfall gave the hotel a beautiful look. Desk staff was extremely helpful, very friendly. English was well-spoken by all which was very convenient for us. Just down the road from the national park, approximately 400 meters, which made for a wonderful early morning run through the snow. Zakopane is a beautiful city and Tatra Chalet is the ideal place to stay,

Stayed for two nights; wish it had been longer. Such a well managed hotel with very friendly & efficient staff from the duty manager to the breakfast waitress - they really could not do enough for us. Then there's the rooms! We had 2 rooms and both were superb. Such attention to detail and both rooms oozed quality with some lovely touches! We didn't have an evening meal during our short stay but if the breakfasts are anything to go by, we shall definitely eat in on our next visit. We made full use of the hot tub in the snow covered garden, which was a fantastic experience. Thank you to all the staff who made our stay so enjoyable and memorable - we shall definitely be back - soon!
