Hotel Batory is beautifully located in a park, a 15-20 minute walk from the city center. Staff is very helpful and friendly, unfortunately, with one or two exceptions (who were fluent in German), knowledge of English is almost non-existent. The rooms are spacious and so is the clean bathroom. Breakfast is simple, but healthy and tasteful. We had supper, which... More

Stayed here in January 2015. Had a fabulous room, very clean, everything you wanted and more including 2 sofas. Bathroom was large and great shower. Breakfast very good. We ate in the restaurant in the evening which was delicious and by a roaring fire. No faults with this hotel at all

This is modern hotel in the old structure. It offers broad and comfortable rooms with balconies and quiet environment being located on the Park Gorny Street in the heart of the park. Hotel offers good breakfast, although the other meals are hard to get off season. The staff is very nice.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Batory Hotel was built by Jozef Szalay in 1874. It was one of the first houses in Szczawnica to be heated by stoves. In 1909, the famous Polish historical writer Henryk Sienkiewicz stayed at the Batory Hotel during his last visit to the spa. His first visit to Szczawnica had been recorded in 1868 when he was 22 years old. In 1879, he stayed in Szczawnica for the second time; at that time he was already a renowned journalist and writer. "Gazeta Lwowska", when announcing Sienkiewicz's lectures in Szczawnica (on August 2) and in Krynica (on August 15) called him "a writer of exceptional talent." The third and the last visit of Sienkiewicz to the Szczawnica spa was recorded in 1909, when, being a very famous writer, he stayed at the Batory Villa with his daughter. The Batory has served a representative function in the spa for many years. Here have stayed various VIPs who came to partake of mineral waters: members of the regional Galicja Parliament, representatives of governmental delegations, government ministers etc. ... more   less
