OK - the surroundings aren't pretty but you can't beat this hotel for location and price.
A speedy check-in. One signature and a few keystrokes on the computer and that was it! Way to go! A few minutes walk from the Palace of Culture. Has a small restaurant downstairs (which at first appearance resembles a children's playroom!) and a good-priced bar that serves hot snacks and cold beer/vodka and operates very generous opening hours! Very friendly barstaff but found the restaurant staff a bit cool. No problem with the Warsaw winter - hotel is over-heated! Thankfully, room radiators can be turned off. Didn't notice any air-con though so might be stifling in summer. Nice big lobby (all the better for checking-in tour groups). Free Wi-Fi and a choice of smoking accomodation. OK sized room/bathroom for a capital city. Very patient room service staff - room was always serviced daily no matter what time we vacated it. (Not always a given in some hotels!) Excellent price for airport transfer (when booked at Reception).Great, mad Indian restaurant nearby ("Bollywood") - has karaoke. Has to be seen/heard to be believed!
Wi-Fi access code had to renewed daily. You have to line up at Reception every day for a brand new code - a real bind especially as Reception was woefully understaffed (and husband was keen to keep up with the sporting action at home). Hotel is very popular with tour/conference groups (hence big lobby!). Lots of noise at night from so-called adults letting off steam. Hotel is large. We kept finding new wings and corridors. It is spread over two blocks so there was lots of door-banging, shouting and noisy suitcase wheels trundling along corridors. Only one elevator - very, very slow! No tea/coffee making facilties in room. No fridge either. TV choice was limited. Only one English language channel - Euronews.
Despite thes gripes, we enjoyed our stay. Definitely worth 4 stars. Just wished that they would allow Wi-Fi access for length of stay. Oh and a free city map would be nice too.
