Grand finale to a grand trip!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 2, 2013

After a tiring but fun-filled 3 week tour of Europe, we capped our journey by staying in a bit more luxurious spot than all the hotels we've stayed in. Polonia Palace exceeded my expectations! For the price posted at their website I thought it was of a 4-star category, given the hotel's age and the fact that their name is not well-known. But the room we got was well-appointed, their bathroom roomy and well-stocked, the reception staff very courteous, professional and helpful. They even have a gym and sauna at the basement. So it was a 4-star prize for a 5-star quality stay!

Didn't get to taste their breakfast as we had to check out very early. Room internet has a charge but you may use their lobby PC for free. I would recommend this hotel and would gladly return if I had the chance.

Directions: From Warsaw Central train station, it is one tram stop away (Centrum) and the hotel is right in front of the stop.

A classic

We stayed in a fabulous hotel, on Jerozolimskie Avenue, just opposite the Palace of Culture and Science. This hotel is centrally located, a block away from Warsawa Centralna Station and in front of Centrum transportation hub - you may get buses, underground and turistic bus (Sightseeing Warsaw) here. Also, it is easily done on foot to historic centre.

Polonia Palace is a traditional hotel in Warsaw, it opened in 1913 and it was the only hotel to stand still at the end of WWII. Therefore, a lot of noticeable guests stayed there: ambassadors, politics, ... On the outside and public areas the hotel is of classic style - it even has a ballroom! -, however, the rooms are simple and with a modern/classic look. We stayed in a room for 3 (2 adults + 1 child) and the room was very spacious, as well as the en-suite bathroom.

The hotel offers free wi-fi, including rooms, and a complementary bottle of water. We also received a bunch of chocolate gold zlotys!

For the family room we payed 280 zl/ night (about 70 euro, March 2011). The rate doesn't include breakfast and it was a flexible rate, I found it a very good deal. I booked in Booking.com about 2 or 3 weeks before arriving in Warsaw. Both in Booking and TripAdvisor the hotel is highly rated by guests, I and agree: the hotel is very comfortable and service very good.

We had buffet breakfast at the hotel, and food is varied and good. When I booked, they said that breakfast was 80 zl/ person, so I didn't book because I found it expensive. However, upon arrival the lady at the reception desk informed that if we booked breakfast that day we would benefit of 50% discount, so we booked. We paid 80 zl/ day (for 2 adults and a child).

Warm and Friendly Stay

The Polonia Palace is one of the most traditional first class hotels in Poland. Established in 1913, it has always been the integral part of the Warsaw's 20th century history; and was the only hotel which was not destroyed during World War II.

The hotel is located in the true heart of the city, with the Palace of Culture and Science is just opposite the hotel. It is very close to the central railway station and approx. 8 km / 20-30 minutes from the airport. The public bus No 175 has a bus stop to the airport in front of the hotel building; and the nearest metro station is across the road.

This is a fantastic 4* hotel which outclasses many 5* hotels I have stayed in. The multi-lingual staff are very helpful and always willing to recommend, locate and book a restaurant for you. The same goes for the reservation staff; in that when needing to book an adjoining room, if one is not available they will ensure that the rooms are next to each other.

The piano bar at the hotel is a little highly priced and will tend to work out at around western hotel bar prices (£3-£4 for 1 Vodka) so it is worth going to the public bars in Warsaw for a cheaper night out; however the happy hour, or more to the point happy 4 hours makes the prices much more reasonable.

The only slight downside is that the guest rooms can seem a little out of place compared to the rest of the hotel as they are very modern in comparison; don't miss understand me though, everyone wants the modern conveniences, I was referring more to the decor than the facilities.

I have now stayed at this hotel a few times and I am pleasantly surprised each time I visit.

If you shop around, you can get a double room for as little as £53 per night (which is less than a Novotel in the UK)

*** Update ***
Have just returned from the hotel. I understand another users comments about the duvet/sheets being too small, however after inquiring at reception, a second duvet was provided.

Also, the Ludwikowska Ballroom is no longer used for breakfast, only for private bookings.

Unique Quality: The Ludwikowska Ballroom is a fantastic feature of the hotel and both the hotel bars/restaurants are friendly and welcoming.

Gym, sauna and solarium, Wireless LAN in all public areas and network and modem point in each room; as well as all normal facilities you would expect.

Great hotel in downtown warsaw

Wholly recommended!

I liked the hotel as soon as I walked through the door - great decor and design.

The room was large and very nice. Great bathroom!

Breakfast buffet is very good - vodka and caviar!

Location is perfect - walking distance to indoor market, casino, shops, palace of science and culture, polish army museum, national museum, metro and trams. About 20-30 minutes walk from the old town.

multi lingual staff are very friendly

the hotel even has its own taxis! nice mercedes, although they seem to charge more for short journeys than regular radio taxis, but to the airport was only 60 zloty.

a nice jazz bar on the ground floow too. what a great place!

Unique Quality: fresh omlette for breakfast, underfloor ehating in bathroom, right opposite the PKiN, taxis and jazzbar!

Very beautiful hotel in Warzaw

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

This hotel I warmly recommend to all who visit Poland. The architecture is breathtaking, rooms are big and luxurious. We spend 3 nights here in 2005 and felt like queens and kings.

The staff was friendly. Breakfast was great! A chef made you an omelet at your pick. They have food for every mouth, even Chinese food, for breakfast!

Unique Quality: The hotel was luxurious and delicate. On the ground floor there was a jazzbar, playroom for the children and a restaurant.

Close to everything, metro, cinema and shopping.

During the 2nd world war, this hotel was occupied by the German army, but the hotel was not damaged.

Directions: Centrally located in the city center of Warsaw, walking distance to the financial and shopping districts. The Palace of Culture and Science is just opposite the hotel. Metro is located opposite the hotel.

Polonia Palace Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 8, 2007

The Polonia Palace is located in the centre of the city right across the street from the Palace of Culture and Science and very close the Centrum metro stop, train station, and a tram stop. You can easily get there from the airport by taking the number 175 bus. The hotel is upscale for Warsaw and the breakfast is very nice. My only complaints would be the room. The duvet was far too small for the bed. The bathroom had no vent system and the door had to be propped open with a towel to let out the shower steam. The bathroom was also lacking some basics like a washcloth.

What a place!

Very professional - multi-lingual staff who were very helpful in sorting out cabs, restaurants etc. Would definitely stay here again

Unique Quality: The restaurant where breakfast is taken is a must see!! Great facilities, spotlessly clean and tidy. Gym, sauna & Solarium available to all hotel guests. Comfy rooms are a good size

Directions: Downtown - right opposite the Palace of Culture, some 500m from Warsaw Central Train Station
