- Breakfast included
Whenever I go to Warsaw and don't feel like spending too much on a hotel, I choose Ibis Budget (previous name was Etap). It's not exactly in the city center, but not much far away, and there's a lot of public transportation stops nearby. It took me about 20 minutes to get to Nowy Świat from the hotel by the city bus.
The staff is friendly and the quality-to-price ratio is pretty good (some youth hostels in Warsaw charge more than this hotel). Breakfast is really nice and if that's not enough, there are vending machines near the reception desk, serving hot meals (mostly toasts with different fillings), chocolate bars, water, soft drinks and beer.
Rooms include a tv, a shower, quite a big bed and desk. This is a cheap hotel, but the tv service includes Canal+, which usually is a premium-paid channel, so you can watch sports and movies.
The only two bad thing is there's a two-lane express road (Armii Ludowej avenue) just opposite the hotel, so try getting a room not facing that street, otherwise it will be noisy if you open the window. The other thing is, the in-room tvs are really small and quite old.
Missing telephone in the rooms means you can't get wake up (apart your own devices).
Gentle personell but wanted charge on CC at arrival contrary to AccorHotels policy-makers
Got the impression price of booking on website was different that one charged..
Great hot food vending machine in the hall.
Forgotten to ask to invoice as I left in a harry. Please send if possible - be email is ok.
We booked this hotel because it was listed as central,and cheap.Cheap it was ,but central it was not. We had to rely on taxis to get to and from the hotel which took about twenty minutes to city centre which cost about twenty five zloty ,It takes about forty minutes to walk to the old town which we did only once.
The hotel is situated close to apartments and a big park,and i would not want to walk back to this hotel after dark.We had breakfast only once ,and found it very good value for money.
This is a very basic hotel at a good rate but the fact that you depend on taxi can make it expensive .F.or that reason only i would not stay here again
