“Great Hotel on outskirts of town”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Stayed here on our motorcycle tour around Tatra Mountains.
Friendly hotel with good english spoken by reception staff.
Rooms were medium sized, clean with everything working. Our rooms had balconies, which were great to take in the clean air and views over the town and surrounding countryside.

Indoor pool and jacuzzi was great relaxation at end of the day. My friend had a massage which he said was good.

Reason for the 4* is that the common areas were a bit small and without views. Perfectly adequate, but for example breakfast is in the basement.

No garage for the bikes, but able to park them in sight of reception by front door, so felt very safe.

The downside of this hotel as everyone says is the walk to centre of town. However, don't let this put you off as a nice walk and taxi fares are cheap for us english (nothing like a London Cab). We caught a cab at 02.30am no problem.

We stayed at Hotel Skalny in Zakopane two nights in July 2009. The hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the center of town and it is a haven. It's set back from the street and there was virtually no noise in the evenings. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was great!!! We loved it!!!!

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Skalny in Zakopane two nights in August 2012. We thought the "bad" news was that the hotel is not in the center of town, but that turned out to be the very good news! The hotel is in a residential/commercial area (with a few options for restaurants close by) about 20 minutes' walk from the hectic and overcrowded center of town. There are lots of people around--Zakopane is a destination for so many people that there are always people nearby--but the hotel is a haven. It's set back from the street and there was virtually no noise in the evenings. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was spotless and comfortable (if only average-sized), and the dining room offers a hearty breakfast. We also had dinner there one night and it was really quite good. The hotel offers ample free parking away from the street, too--an added bonus!

After a day of hiking and dinner around Krupowki, you do not want to hike some more. It is not really a problem since busses run quite frequently in daytime but not so at night. Otherwise Skalny is an excellent choice.

Stayed at Hotel Skalny March 2011 during a ski tip. Spacious clean room. Very good heating system, plus underfloor heating in the bathroom. Staff on reception friendly & helpfull. Breakfast has all the basics, plus you can ask them to cook you eggs of your choice. Just dont ask for a omlette, as they'll serve it like a pancake with whiped cream & tinned fruit on top - which was very odd. The spa / pool was clean & we used it several times. I would say its an averge to good 3* Hotel.

We stayed at hotel skalny for three nights in June. The hotel is some distance away from the town centre, but is situated at the base of the local mountains with stunning views from our balcony and the surrounding countryside. We asked to be moved from the first room which we were allocated because of a broken blind, and this was done very quickly with the minimum of fuss. The room itself was very comfortable, quite spacious with the interior clad in wood, ski-lodge style. Bathroom was large and clean with a power-shower cubicle. The only downside was that there was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Breakfast was a standard continental-style buffet and pretty good overall. Although we didn't use the swimming pool/sauna we had a good look at them and the they seemed well maintained and clean. The hotel is around 30 minutes walk from Krupowski Street in the town centre through some lovely countryside. We also booked a day long excursion from one of the many outlets on Krupowski Sreet doing river rafting which was v. enjoyable (river not rough- good for sightseeing) and good value at 100zl each. Taxi from the coach station to the hotel 20zl each way. Overall a nice place, would go back in summer, but a little far out from the town centre once you've had a few beers. Zakopane itself is great place to visit for 2-3 days and easy to get to by coach from Krakow- coaches run regularly even on Sundays, and cost 18zl for a single ticket. Would definitely go back to Hotel Skalny and Zakopane itself.
