“old world elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

This hotel oozes atmosphere taking you back to the romance of an earlier time. We loved the art deco styling and supremely comfortable room.It is well designed with great attention to detail.
The reception staff were faultless in their service. They were friendly, professional and extremely helpful dealing with our various questions and requests.
Breakfast was excellent as was the dinner we had in the restaurant the night before, I particularly liked the menu and the way it offered dishes from late 19th century in its selection.Service in the bar was also exemplary and the bar snacks we ordered very tasty also.
The location of the hotel we discovered was very interesting, lots of history and really just a short walk to the main station.

An art deco hotel about 500 metres from the Central Station. Beautifully decorated premises, spacious rooms where everything works. The staff are polite, attentive and genuinely want to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

The restaurant and bar are furnished in the art deco style and serve good, reasonably priced food. The breakfast was the best I had during my stay in Poland.

One small issue. The room was a little warm and I couldn't find the controls to vary the a/c temperature. Opening the window solved the issue.



I would recommend without hesitation.

A little bit further away from the railway station, but such a beautiful hotel, art deco and even the rooms are quite large and also art deco furnished. I had a big bathroom, plenty of space to put your belongings. Turn-down service (always nice to go to your room at night and the room is prepared!).
Shopping (!) in the golden terraces (and railway station) only 7 minute walk.
I would definely go to the Rialto (in stead of the big international hotels).

I once lived in Warsaw and so I know the city very very well. For the past dozen years I've been returning once each year and it has taken me a while to find a hotel I could really warm up to. Finally, three years ago I discovered the Rialto. It's perfect. The location may appear a little to the side, but really, in two blocks you are on Warsaw's main drag -- Marszalkowska -- and two blocks further put you right by the grand avenue of the city, leading on your right toward the parks and on your left, to the Old Town. The street of the hotel itself is quiet -- a residential block, where you can watch the daily movement of people going about their lives.

Inside, the hotel reminds you of a Warsaw you read about from the 1930s. Art Deco furnishings are elegantly placed throughout, the wood trim is exceptional and the floors, even in the winter, are polished to a shine.

Everything about the place is quite professional. The staff is always helpful and greets you each time you come in with a warm welcome. The hotel isn't large and so if you stay more than a night, you'll be remembered!

I'm going back for the fourth time this winter. The rates then are an extraordinary value. I'm already looking forward to it.

This is a very nice, quiet hotel in the city center of Warsaw. We were there on vacation and ended up there because there was a very large medical convention in town and some of our other choices were booked. It all ended well as the location of the hotel is very well located between the embassy/park area and the old town area - both parts of town being an easy walk as were many nice restaurants. We had a junior suite which was spacious and well appointed. The staff was very nice and english was not a problem. Very nice buffet breakfast every morning. They do serve dinner and there is a bar but we didnt partake of either - the hotel was very quiet and there was no one sitting in the bar nor did we see anyone eating dinner. Small gym and we couldnt get the equipment working but there are small and large parks nearby with ample places for running. We loved Warsaw and think Poland is very underrated as a destination.

I stayed for 2 nights in August and it is my favourite hotel in Warsaw. Helpful staff, lovely furnishings and a beautiful bathroom. I used the steamroom a couple of times and had it all to myself. It's in a quieter but still central area of Warsaw, it's a short walk from the central station and taxis are cheap in warsaw too. The bar and restaurant are highly recommended too. The real treat for me was the Wiener Werkstätte furniture, the original Koloman Moser desk in the entrance is stunning. I can't wait to return.
