“Missing a trick for 5 stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

I stayed here on business and things didn't get off to a very good start as the room wasn't ready despite booking an apartment and arriving at 5pm. The reception didn't really apologise for this but did offer us a drinks voucher for the bar while we waited. Once I did get in to the room, it still smelled of the previous occupant's perfume which made me feel a bit sick it was that strong.
The room however was very big and comfortable, although the bathroom was a bit on the small side bearing in mind this was an apartment.
Food in both the brasserie and breakfast were of a high standard with lots of choice on offer, although we had to ask 3 times at breakfast for coffee to be brought to the table.
All in all this is certainly a good hotel, but lacks the complete level of service to make it best in class. Would I stay here again? Probably not, I would try another similar price bracket. But I would still recommend it to business travellers as long as they consider it is not top notch.

Dear Guest,
I sincerely thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay in our Sofitel Warsaw Victoria Hotel. We value the information from our Guests, we carefully analyze it and we learn from it, in order to constantly improve.
First, I wish to apologize for a delay in preparing your room and the resulting service shortcomings, as well as for the slow breakfast service. I am sharing all information with our teams and please rest reassured it won’t happen again, as what we want to provide is magnifique service and marvelous experiences for all our Guests.
On the other hand I do appreciate your affirmative notes on our generous breakfast buffet and also on the quality of the food in our new Brasserie Moderne. We find your positive feedback very much rewarding, as after remodeling of the spaces, we put a lot of attention and work to deliver culinary delight matching with the hotel’s new image. Soon, we will also offer luxuriously redesigned suites and I believe that we will be able to suit the taste of most demanding travelers.
Having said that, I still hope to have the opportunity to serve you on your future travel occasions and I gladly remain at your disposal for any assistance you would require,
Yours sincerely,
Piotr Prasuła

For the New Year season,I decided to go to Warsaw which I expected to discover under a thick coat of snow. Though luck, the winter started milder then ever with no snow. Anyway, to indulge myself a compensation I went for the motto of SOFITEL, " life is magnific in Warsaw ". And indeed, the SOFITEL Victoria is up to that slogan : lavish interiors, helpful staff, innovative and ideally balanced New Year's eve menu, perfection in any single detail. This, without mentioning the personnal welcome and attention of the G.M. Really, life is magnific in Warsaw, still more at the SOFITEL

It was my first time in Warsaw by business and one of the thing why I'll remember it is this excellent hotel. Room was very comfortable, more space that I actually needed. Staff were very kind and always ready to help.
Excellent choice for the breakfast, a lot of food and nothing was missing even that day was some conference in the hotel and the restaurant was full of people.

We visited Warsaw in January this year and had a perfect experience staying at Sofitel Warsaw Victoria for 3 nights.
I have no criticism of this hotel it had everything to offer. The staff were very helpful and they could communicate good English, the cleanliness was outstanding and the rooms were very comfortable and well equipped.
Food was delicious and of course it is always a brilliant experience to have your meal in a newly renovated elegant but trendy interior.
The Bar was also lovely with the special DJ giving the mood of the Friday night.
If you have also time for some pampering, you should consider to visit also the swimmingpool. It has a fabulous design with the mirrors on the top of the ceiling. Do not miss the massage after a big walk .
The hotel has a great location, less then 10 minutes walking to the old town and 10 minutes also to the center of the city. In the modern quater you will find all the big shopping malls.
It is also practical, that the City Tour leaves just across the road of Sofitel.

The hotel is highly recomaneded. If we have the possibility,we will certainly return.
Thank you Sofitel Victoria!
