convenient a great breakfast

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 4, 2008

Our stay was fine. The room was good but the so-called double bed was actually twin beds pushed together with a gap between them. The bathroom was good, but the hairdryer stopped working long before my hair was dry, and would not start again. There was a mini bar, and TV but only with CNN in English. Although there was no safe, it was possible to get a safe deposit box at reception.
Linen and towels were only changed on request as part of their green policy.
The room was kept clean. The service at Reception was not up to standard, and there was no bellboy available when we first arrived and by the time we checked in another guest had grabbed him, so we had to take our luggage to our room ourselves. There should have been more staff available as the check in was very busy and guests were arriving in a stream that day. The man who dealt with us at reception started our check-in process, and whenever a Polish speaking client came to the desk with a query , he would deal with them , and then come back to us.
When I needed a taxi to go to the Exhibition centre the day my husband was ill, the man outside got taxis for other patrons but ignored me, until I reminded him that I had been waiting before the previous males.
However when we checked out in the pre-dawn hours there was a bellboy available, and a taxi had been ordered to take us to the airport.

Unique Quality: The breakfast buffet was very good with great variety- fruit juice, fruit, cereal, cold cuts and cheese, bread and croissants, hot dishes , yoghurt etc .The service there was good. Tea or coffee were brought as soon as you sat down , and empty dishes were promptly removed.

Directions: Just off Aleje Jerozolimskie.

I was there in December 2006 few days and I must say this hotel is absolutely worth paying.
It is very clean and enviroment is pleasant. Few bars and restaurants are included also.
Location is near centre of town and they even have their own taxies, so moving is very simple.
If I have to say any bads, I would go for traffic noise.

I sure recommend this to anybody who wants something nice

Warsaw Oldest Hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 20, 2007

Hotel Sobieski is nice and comfortable place to stay in Warsaw. Room is equipped with tv, internet and air condition. But there is nothing above that. I would not reccomend this hotel for longer stay or holidays because the prices are pretty high and there are no additional services available at or around the hotel.

Unique Quality: Hotel has a very nice climat and cultural service. Hotel is a part of polish prestige hotels chain. One stay at this hotel gives you 20% discount on all hotels in this chain.

Directions: City Center. Go toward great white-blue office building.

Perfect location & good value for money

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and was very pleased with the room, the service, the restaurants/bars and other amenities. This is a 4-star hotel, designed and built by an Austrian / Polish team. It opened its doors in 1992 and is named after Polish King Jan III Sobieski who led his troops to the rescue of besieged Vienna.

The location of this hotel is perfect for exploring both old and new Warsaw! It's only 1 km to the Central Railway Station and 5,6 km from the Int'l Airport Okecie.
Just outside the hotel there are bus & tram stations. Take the bus no. 175, which will take you all the way to Old Town (bus stop "Hotel Bristol"). This bus also brings you back to the hotel when you're done (bus stop "Pl. Zawieszy").
The nightlife area is a mere 5min taxi ride away, costing approx. 15 Zloty (one-way)

TIP: For info about the surrounding area & tourist interests, ask the concierge or the porter. They are extremely helpful & made our stay very easy & enjoyeable.

There are 427 rooms, of which 118 rooms have high speed Internet access at a rate of US$ 15- per day. The beds are extremely comfortable, but they don't have double beds (even though the website states so, there are only twin beds). You can choose to stay on a smoking & non-smoking floor. All rooms have the following amenities:
> air conditioning/heating.
> mini-bar.
> satellite TV and radio.
> direct dial telephone line.
> hairdryers.
> (there is no safe in your room, but you can use the one at reception)
Check-in & check-out time: 12.00 midday.

Word of advice: Just keep in mind that the hotel rates are quoted in Euros, but that you'll be paying in Polish Zloty.

Unique Quality: I asked for an ironing board & iron so I could prepare my dress for the evening (they also offer laundry services) It was promptly brought to my room at the time I had specified.

The Hairdresser "Iza" is very nice & serves both ladies & gents. I had my hair washed and styled (blow-dry) and paid 65 Zloty. Use the Iza business card from your room to receive a 10% discount.

The television has mostly Polish channels, CNN in English and (much to my delight) most German channels free to air. You can set your alarm clock on the TV itself, or ask for an old-fashioned wake-up call from the reception.

The breakfast buffet is extensive, fresh and pretty good and is served at the Marysienka Restaurant from 06.30am - 10.30am & from noon till 10.30pm for lunch & dinner. There is a smoking and a non-smoking section.

The Night Bar / Zbrojownia Bar (next to hair salon Iza) is a small, cozy bar where we enjoyed a couple of drinks after a long day's sight-seeing. The bartenders speak good English & the drinks are extremely potent, but reasonably priced.

TIP: Try to book a garden-facing room, as the other rooms face a busy intersection which can be a bit noisy at night (if you want to keep your window open). The windows have full anti-noise protection measures, but I like fresh air when I'm sleeping ;-)

I plan to return to Warsaw (hopefully next year) to spend more time exploring this gorgeous city with its hospitable people, and I would definitely wish to stay in this hotel again.

Directions: Just down the road from the Palace of Science & Culture.

It was opened in 1992. The four-star hotel's Austrian-Polish design team named the place after King Jan III Sobieski, a Polish statesman whose troops rescued a besieged Vienna.
The hotel`s characteristic and colourful façade is an easily recognisable architectural feature of Warsaw Located in the heart of Warsaw's business district, the Hotel is conveniently situated in one of the main streets, within easy reach from all parts of the city. It is only 1 km to the Central Railway Station and 5,6 km from the International Airport Okêcie.

Great hotel... for business :-)

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 15, 2006

The 4-star, business-oriented hotel usually called shortly Sobieski is housed in strange, colorful building off the downtown, some 500 m east of the Central Railway Station. It's not a hotel for those who love to take a walk around. But the hotel is very good value for money with the price (Fenrueary, 2006) of 67 euros per the least expensive room for two people without breakdast. Click above on "Check Deals for Sobieski Hotel (Plac Artura Zawiszy Warsaw 02 025)".

I had the least expensive room who was not as pretty as I could expect in expensive 4-star hotel. It was rather small room and had funny small TV-set. I saw larger room of my friend and it looked perfect - my recommendation! Well, both rooms well good equipped and had nice bathroom.

Unique Quality: I stayed there one night in the early 2000' and I enjoyed a lot food served for us, friendly staff as well as sterile clean and pretty modern design of the hotel ground floor and inside garden. But first of the hotel is perfectly prepared for small and medium-size conferences and banquets. Expect to see many of them when you stay there.

The snobish list of people who stayed in this hotel (I found it in my room) is impressive. Let say musicians: Art Garfunkel, Carlos Santana, Sarah Connor and Paul Young; jazzmen: Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Al Di Meola and... Bill Clinton :=). Well, most politicians stay in other hotels :-).

Directions: Some 500 m east of the Central Railway Station on the way to Krakow and Katowice. Map here

Jan Sobieski is a great value!!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 25, 2005

Our stay here was quite pleasant. I normally don't care for the sterility and extra ding ding dings of a hotel, but this one seemed to be very nice without trying too hard. Three out of four people staying here were German it seemed, and of the rest, half were British. Even so, their awesome breakfast buffet served American style omelets made to order. That's in addition to every item for a full English breakfast and enough Continental breakfast to make the tables sag.

Unique Quality: The food here was th best. Everything was of really high quality, and was served without the feel that it was mass produced. Even though the food came from the buffet, it had the quality and care you would expect from a good restaurant's plate. You really felt just so satisfied when you left the buffet.

Sobieski Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 20, 2005

The hotel`s characteristic and colourful façade is an easily recognisable architectural feature of Warsaw and an elegant threshold to the district of Ochota. The four star hotel was designed and built by an Austrian - Polish team, and received its first guests in 1992. The common historical element connecting both countries is King Jan III Sobieski - a great Pole and outstanding statesman, who led his troops to the rescue of besieged Vienna. The status of the Patron places the hotel under an obligation to render royal-standard services and cultivate national traditions, including the renowned Polish hospitality.

i had a great time there not mentioning that i was ill (caught flue) and during my stay i had to stay in bed for a half day from 7pm till 9am.. i had fever and i was thinking of ordering sg to eat, but actually it was too late already
