This is a very pleasant place to stay in Warsaw. Hotel is situated in a rather modern and faceless business district, which may be good for business, not perfect but perfectly do-able for sightseeing. They are digging up the street near the hotel, so getting there on public transport from the train station can be a bit challening, however, there's a bus going to the Old Town, and generally, public transport in Warsaw is very efficient and fast.So, if you want to have a choice of restaurants, you have to get on a bus, though there are quite a few (generic) eating options in the nearby Zlote Tarasy Shopping Centre and around.
The Hotel is built in a boring and bullish business district indistinct style, bits of glass and concrete, nothing special. Reception is very friendly. I checked in at 14.00 as I had to study and was promptly shown to my room on the 10th floor. Standard room was medium size, very nice bathroom, very comfortable bed. It looked a bit unmade when I got in (just not what I'd expect from a five-star, certainly no hospital corners) but bed linens were fresh and of excellent quality... the kind of soft, god knows what thread count one gets in upmarket hotels. The room was otherwise, apart from a few nice touches (Artemide desk lamp, Eames desk chair) very balnd and a bit tatty round the edges here and there. However, perfectly acceptable and comfortable. AirCon was abit on the noisy side. As I had not paid much, I didn't really worry about any of these smallish shortcomings. However, the fact that rates appear to fall on weekends also might attract the less desirable clientele, namely some very noisy rowdy people on some kind of binge trip out - not great when you got exams or important meetings the next day.
And... you pay through the nose for extras. Wifi - 20 EURO per day. Breakfast - 99 zloty, I think. Wifi is free in the lobby, though, and somehow, the signal was still strong enough on my floor, Given this was so cheap to begin with, there had to be a catch... I'd stay here again, but I'd probably give it four stars.
