Kosciuszki 18, 34-500 Zakopane, Poland
Villa Marilor Hotel is situated in a small palace included in the
Register of Historic Buildings and Monuments. It owes its unique name to one of its
previous owners, Maria Eleonora.
This eclectic building erected in 1912 for the Szczeniowski family was originally
an elegant guesthouse. The unique combination of the local style typical of Zakopane
and Tyrolese architecture evokes associations with the tradition of the most
famous European health resorts.
In the post-war years, that historic palace had many owners. Among others, it
functioned as a guesthouse of the Central Committee of the Polish Youth Association.
In the period between 1956 and the late 1990s, when it was reprivatised, it housed
the famous Secondary School of Fine Arts named after Antoni Kener.
The lack of financial means for thorough restoration and alteration works brought
about the gradual dilapidation of that historic building. Its present owner, the
company ZETWU INWEST HOTELE MARILOR Sp. z o.o., carried out the overhaul of the
palace and restored its former glory.
Since the date of its inauguration, on September 29, 2001, "Villa Marilor" has
performed its original function. Its guests find there the hospitality that is so
traditional of Zakopane.
