“Wonderful...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Been in Warsaw many times before, but has always stayed at the Regina. This time we wanted to try a new hotel, and another part of town. We did not regret that, hotel Polonia Palace was really great! We had a spacious room with a view of the cultural palace. Breakfast was really great, with a lot of options and a chef that prepared omelets, eggs and so on at the spot every morning. We also used the sauna, but not the spa this time. Very close to shopping, and a 20 - 30 min walk to the old town - or a short taxi-ride (see more below about taxis...!).

I have only one complaint - and that does not just go for the Polonia Palace especially, but for a lot of hotels around the world. I do not understand why most double rooms have only ONE comfortable chair.......(see pic.) But - we loved the hotel and will probably use it next time!

When in Warsaw - beware of the taxi-drivers, they often try to frame tourists! We were offered prices from 45 PLzl (which we did not accept!) to 15 zl to or back from old town to our hotel, and the lowest price is closest to what the price should be! Always ask about the price before entering a taxi, and do not let them just tell you that they have a taxa-meter. In one taxi we had last year the price at the taxa-meter mysteriously tripled when the taxi stopped! So - always get them to tell the price before entering the taxi!

Polonia Palace is perfect! Nice staff in the reception. Rooms are stylish and special thanks to the cleaning ladies, who did such a wonderfull job! Clean and spacious rooms. Breakfast is also wonderfull, with sparkling wine and even vodka :-). We made the booking through the hotels own website, so we had free WiFi and welcome drinks (beer, wine or softdrinks) in the bar. Highly recommend this hotel!

I stayed with a friend at the Polonia Palace and we were very impressed. We booked it through Expedia's sale, paying only about £260 for 5 nights a twin room, excluding breakfast. We were very surprised when we arrived at the hotel to see how lovely it was.

There's a light and spacious lobby/reception where you can gain access to free wifi. The reception staff, in fact all the staff, are friendly, smart, efficient an helpful. There's a bar serving a variety of vodkas - our favourite was honey vodka. There were always nibbles on the bar tables.

We were delighted with our bedroom which was large, and with a view of the splendid Palace of Culture and Science. The twin beds were big and comfy, and the room was equipped with everything we needed. There was complementary water supplied daily The bathroom too was large, with a full bath and shower over.

We oped to pay extra for the breakfast - 9 euros each. It was fabulous. An absolutely huge choice of hot and cold foods, including at least 10 types of cheeses, fresh fruits and vegetables, a choice of little cakes. You could even have sparkling wine, vodka, or big chunks of chocolate (white or milk). The breakfast is really outstanding.

The location is good, near a transport hub so easy to catch tram, metro or buses. It’s about 25 minutes pleasant and flat walk to the Old Town and roughly the same distance the other way to the beautiful Lazienki Park. (Note - on Thursdays entrance to the palaces and other buildings is free). There are lots of cafes, restaurants and bars nearby.

Room Tip: We were high up facing the Palace of Science and Culture. Enjoyed the view, but high enough not to...

We've stayed here twice. Normally my wife and myself like much smaller hotels (of say the 10-20 room variety) than bigger hotels. So in terms of a hotel you are talking about staying in a big-box quality hotel sized building.

However, the interior is much more pleasing in that they have done a good blend of feeling more like you were going back in time to a grander era of old Warsaw, but with all the conveniences and up-do-date rooms with amenities we like. And the staff is very, very helpful. Actually they were wonderful on all accounts.

We selected this hotel based on a number of factors. We were very close to the main train station. We were very close to a hub of the good local public transportation.

Like all "fancier" hotels, it's a bit pricey. But overall it's a very stress free, comfortable, almost pampering environment.

BTW, there are some excellent, smaller restaurants within a few blocks of the hotel.

Room Tip: There are two types of rooms. Those that face the atrium and those that face the outside. So if you...

The Polonia Palace is situated on the main central square of Warsaw across from the iconic 31 story landmark Palace of Culture and Technology. The hotel has all of the amenties you could want except for a full service restaurant, but it has a bar with limited menu and a great breakfast. Ask for a room on the Palace of Culture side of the hotel -- the inside rooms look down over the lobby and have no view.

Room Tip: Get a room on the Palace of Culture side. Inside room have no view.

Lovely hotel, excellent staff both in reception (where we booked some tours easily) and at breakfast where we probably had the best ever breakfast in Europe (superb choice of cereals. seeds, fruit etc and even three different types of honey!!)....not to mention vodka and sparkling wine and all the other choices!! Very convenient for the railway station...5 minutes walk and the Palace of Culture from which we had wonderful views from the balcony at the top. There is also a Carrefour Express supermarket nearby for water, alcohol and other essential supplies. Our room was adequate...looked over a boring courtyard...it did have tea and coffee supplies and we were given a litre of bottled water a day but NO free Wifi unlike three other hotels we stayed in!!! There was no restaurant service in the evenings only snacks in a very noisy bar rather spoiling the ambience of the delightful lobby1

Room Tip: High room are quiet.

Stayed one night, en-route for Krakow and Zakopane. I've stayed in a few hotels in this central area, but this is easily the best. As soon as you walk into the hotel you realise that it is going to be a bit special, and indeed that is the case. The hotel is very well appointed throughout. My room was very spacious and clean. Staff were welcoming and friendly. I had booked through the hotel website, so I had free WiFi (good bandwidth) and also received a voucher for a free drink in the bar - a nice touch. I didn't eat in the hotel, apart from breakfast, which was a buffet with a good range of food.
As others have said, the hotel is very convenient for the main station, and is also within walking distance of the Old Town area.
I will definitely stay here again the next time I am in Warsaw.
