“Nice, traditional hut”
Reviewed January 21, 2011

I would like to recommend Schronisko na Polanie Chocholowskiej for those who need an accommodation in the heart of Tatra Mountains and look for really nice atmosphere. This place offers a lot of opportunities for mountaineering and visiting whole Western part of Tatra Monutains - the most interesting and highest in Poland.
Rent a Bicycle service is operating in Chocholowska Valley (highly recommended).

This is obviously not a hotel but a rather large mountain hut in the heart of the Western Tatras. As a mountain hut it offers only limited services, but the location is what counts. The hut is bookable over phone but if you arrive without a reservation and its overfull, you'll be offered some floorspace in a common room for a small fee (provided you have your sleeping bag with you). It offers a number of rooms ranging from twins to large 16-berth rooms. The toilets and bathrooms are shared. The hut has its own power and heating (although we found it to be quite cold in September), and a tourist restaurant, where you can buy breakfasts and dinners. The restaurant opens only at 8 in the morning, which we found a bit late for tourism, and it takes the last orders by 7:30 in the evening. The menu is limited, some meals are quite good, even if basic, others not, all seem overpriced. There is also a free shared tourist kitchen, where you can prepare your own meals (no oven, only tables and an electric kettle), and free drying room for your wet clothes. In the reception desk you can buy maps of the area and some very basic utensils, spare batteries etc. Mobile phone coverage is limited to two Polish operators: Play and Plus only. I'm listing all these services, as being in the middle of a national park, there's almost nothing else available around within a range of 2 hours walk.

Also, you cannot drive to the hut - you have to walk there and the nearest bus stop is about 10 kilometres away. In a summer you can hire a bike to cover some of the distance.

The staff are friendly and helpful.

Their website is http://www.chocholowska.zakopane.pl/

Being a tourist accommodation, of course its major features are the atmosphere and the location. It is perfect for day trips in the Western Tatras, and the views are breathtaking.
It may be not my favourite mountain hut, for its size (I prefer smaller ones) but I'm definitely returning there. If you're for backpacking and hiking in the area, do not hesitate.
