If you are travelling to zakopane by bus here are a couple of tips we found when we got the bus from krakow airport.You come out side and right in front is the free bus that takes you round the bend to the metro,you can buy a ticket here on the train for ten zlotys,this will take you right into krakow train station,leave here and look for exit and go down the stairs on the left ,once down take a left and go to the end go up the stairs and at the end of the street on the left hand side is the bus station,Here you can get a bus that goes all the way to zakopane you buy your ticket off the bus driver this is about 18 zlotys.This will take around two and a half hours.When we got to zakopane bus station we got a taxi for 15 zlotys to our hotel. A cost of about £8 each in all good value for money ,we priced a taxi and this would of been around £ 70 - £ 80.

We stayed there on 3 occasions (last visit in April 2011) while visiting Zakopane and we would defiantly stay there again. Hotel Helios is located few minutes’ walk from Krupowki with all its attractions. Rooms are clean, comfortable, most of them with magnificent views of Tatra Mountains. Reception staff was really nice , polite and very helpful. There is free Wi-Fi and if you don’t have your own laptop, you can use PC located in the reception free of charge. Breakfast buffet was very good with plenty to choose from. We did try hotel’s Italian restaurant, great food, and good service. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed here with two friends the summer of 2010. The hotel rooms were basic, the sleeping space was small - felt like we were in a dormatory, but really, we were only there to sleep and change so it was not a problem. On hot summer nights and bright summer mornings,we did wish that our windows opened and our curtains closed though! It was hot in the room at night and we had to wake with the sun! The view from our room was amazing, however, and a lovely scene to wake up to.

Room aside, the hotel location was PERFECT for our needs. The breakfast was good (though I don't think I will ever become accustomed to the Eastern European way of scrambling eggs--- too much liquid egg for most North Americans' taste, but hey, when in Rome...) Everything else on the buffet was great! We were able to check our e-mail on the lobby computer and we found the staff to be friendly and helpful. They helped us arrange a bus tour that included a tour of Niedzica Castle and a wooden raft trip down the Dunajec River. And they helped us locate the restaurant Chata Zbojnicka, a dining experience that every visitor to Zakopane MUST experience. (Hint... if they don't open the door for you when you knock to be let in... keep knocking! You won't be disappointed if you have any sense of adventure! :-)

If (hopefully "when") we return to Zacopane - we might opt for a place with more of the local character, but I have no real complaints about this hotel and the view and location are ideal.

I did not like the hotel at all. The main reason was the reception staff, who was unfriendly, unhelpful and unapproachable. The room was furnished in a bad taste and the sink in the bathroom was leaking. The hotel is located near the main street, is cheep and the breakfast was ok, so if it wasn't for the bad experience with the lobby staff, my review would be much higher.

If you want budget accommodation that is close to town with a simple but adequate breakfast, this is the hotel for you. It’s a five minute walk through the park to the main part of town and as far as I can tell most rooms have views of the mountains. Yes the décor is somewhat dated, the beds where a bit hard and small, but it was clean. The staff were friendly and willing to give information freely. Highly recommend for the budget traveller.
