The corridors are tall and dark with stained carpets which does give a slightly forbidding air, but if you're not expecting to spend long periods of time wandering the hallways then this shouldn't be a problem. The guest house gives the impression of part dormitory, because apparently it is but I suffered no problems with noise or any other disturbances.
I was actually very happy with the room itself. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. I actually got quite a lot of work done, which was good. The only other place in the hotel in which you are likely to spend time is the bar/restaurant. They have some cheap meals, which aren't great but certainly not terrible either. Breakfast is quite a disappointment, especially if you're going to stay for any appreciable length of time. Just some ham and boring bread with some dried cucumber slices, a lettuce leaf, wedge of tomato and jam. On weekends you get a boiled egg too!
The staff, to quote another reviewer are a bit 'civil-service'. The bar staff were okay, but the reception staff were slow and give the impression that they really couldn't care less. Sometimes, they weren't even there.
If you're in Warsaw for a luxurious holiday, then this is not the place for you. However, if you're offered a place by the University of Warsaw on a business visit like I was, then you shouldn't suffer too greatly.
