“Good value hotel in a great location”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This hotel is very good value for your money. Good location, very close to the walking street and main attractions. Furniture is a bit dated, but everything is clean. Very good onsite restaurant. Excellent value for your money.

3stars hotels in Zakopane is not among the cheapest in Poland. Therefore the 2* Helios is still a very good alternative! Ten minutes’ walk from the bus station and less from the main street, located in an area without traffic and all rooms facing the Tatra Mountains! It still has the quality it last time I was there three years ago. The staff in the reception was helpful and spoke adequately good English, the Italian Restaurant has the best breakfast you will get in Poland!

Travelling from Cracow to Zakopane: It shall be possible to go by train, but the buss are much faster (2 h), more comfortable and cheaper (20 zl or €5) so unless you are a train enthusiast, take the bus! Most of the day it goes 2-3 times per hour. Szwagropol has very comfortable busses, some of the other companies may use smaller and less comfortable busses.

Room Tip: All rooms are facing the Tatras. There is no traffic in the area. Single rooms (only a few) are much...

this hotel is in a great location with no street noise. staff at reception are very good and will do all they can to help you. A good breakfast is served up until eleven each day, it is a ten minute walk to bus station and a little less to centre of town and also to cable car.there is a bar in hotel which closes around ten, and a restaurant which was very good. rooms are spacious with a great view. zacopane when we stayed from january the fourth until the eight was simply a winter wonderland,my wife and i got exactly what we wished for and at a great price.

Room Tip: A lower floor maybe as there is no lift.

We spent one night. Good value hotel, clean. No lift!

We had a folk festival in park behind hotel with home made stuff (bread, sausage, beer). At the end of August. Definitely worth to visit. Busy at this time, but silent after fireworks at 21:30.

Thanks.

Room Tip: South rooms have excellent view at the Tatra mountains.

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.
