“Good location and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights during a business trip to Warsaw. To be concise I'll just list the pros and cons.

Pros:
1. Good location close to business center of Warsaw.
2. Spacious rooms
3. Very modern looking and well-equipped bathroom
4. Free safe-box in the room
5. Complimentary water, tea, coffee
6. Free high speed internet
7. Great breakfast

Cons:
1. The rooms are not very clean. Quite a lot of dust on furnuture.
2. On Sunday the currency exchange office was not open, which is unacceptable as there were its workign hours and it is very difficult to change money in that part of town, especially during a weekend.
3. It's quite cold in the rooms and this can be fixed only from the reception (You cannot do it from your room).
4. The information in the hotel bookg (in the room) regarding the Pay TV channels is somewhat missleading and creating the impression that all the available channels are against payment.

I think the value of this hotel is pretty high and I would recommend it for business trips.

Dear shourique

thank you for your input. I was sorry to read that your room had not been cleaned well enough, please accept my apologies.

Not much to say about this place, which I think is in its favour. We were on a stag do out in Warsaw, and the hotel was very accommodating for a big group of drunken idiots. There was also a massive European judo contest being housed the same weekend, which had the potential for disaster! But, amazingly, everything went very smoothly. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, there was a big breakfast with plenty on offer (nothing particularly special, but definitely on par or above average with your usual hotel breakfast) and there was a pool and sauna.

Walking distance to the town centre (10 mins) or £4 in a hotel taxi (£3 in a normal taxi). There was a bar and a restaurant downstairs which was pretty plain and (the beer) overpriced by local standards. They also gave us a bit of a hard time when we were in there, but I think our behaviour left a lot to be desired! So I would sooner apologise than criticise on that front. Other than that the staff were very helpful. It was a plain hotel - you know what you are getting with Radisson Blus usually, and this hotel fits the mould. Only problem was with the infernal keycards which seemed to reset themselves every couple of hours, requiring a trip back to the front desk to get them programmed!

I stayed at the hotel with a friend, and we had an excellent experience. The hotel is located close to the airport, so it is easy to get there. It is close to the shopping mall and reasonably close to the old town. It is very cheap to take a taxi, so it was no problem to go to the old town.The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was nice and clean. Breakfast is very good and I would recommend to have breakfast at the hotel. The first evening we had dinner at the hotel. The food was impeccable and the service was good. The only but is the fitness center - it is small and need an upgrade.

stayed in january. Easy to find after arriving by train at warsaw central rail station- exit onto main street in front of station ( opp is the large tower block of the Marriott hotel) and turn right. After 20 mins walking ( across large traffic intersections and street car tramway lines) you will arrive at the plac ( square) with the hotel. The area around the hotel is uninspiring but its safe and within reasonable distance of most attractions.

Elegant and clean, this hotel is very close to a shopping mall and fairly clsoe to the old town. Aside of that, I agree with other customers that this hotel has many improvement areas. The staff is professionally courteous but not particularly friendly. The business room I had was smaller than I thought and I did not feel the real value added on getting that. Rooms facing the street below are very noisy bcs of the traffic and the windows which are not helping much in noise reduction. Breakfast very good, but for dinner I would suggest to take few steps outside and go somewhere else to eat since the offer outside is very wide. Fitness center and massage services are quite below the average of this kind of hotel, I was thinking having a massage but changed my mind very soon after a short scouting. Next time I would definitely choose another hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the main street below are surely more silent

The rooms are of a good standard and look and feel new. The ensuite was smart and I loved the full shower head that was attached to the ceiling with an excellent head of steam. Mine was a twin room and my only gripe was that the duvet was so small it kept falling off the bed. Food was very good with a well laid out breakfast and though a relatively limited dinner menu the food was good. Judging by the amount of diners eating alone this hotel caters for the business traveller. Free internet connection was an added bonus.
