Travel Blogs from Warsaw
... After that train ride, I wasn't in the mood to play tourist in Warsaw... I got to the hotel around 4h00, had an early dinner and an early night.
The next day, 2 objectives: walk around town and take a few pictures and buy my train ticket for the Poznan-Berlin leg of my trip. First, found a authorized dealer that sold Bahn (German railway) train tickets. It was close to the hotel, great! Walked over, could not find it. Back to the hotel, ask for help, got some but ...
Today I got the first taste of the deep, emotional experiences this trip has to offer. We started the day at the Jewish cemetary in Warsaw (see photo). The cemetery was created over 100 years before the Nazi's occupied Poland. It was so interesting to see the remnants of Jewish life before the events of the Holocaust that have begun to be so synonymous with Polish Jews. Visiting the cemetery allowed for me to get a glimpse of ...

It was interesting to see how he spoke about his country and to hear the things that he was obviously proud of, as a Pole. We went for a spot of lunch, but intended to make it our main meal as we knew we were getting the sleeper train to Kiev later at around 8pm. We had been recommended Pierogi by both Kasia and Emma, as well as our guide, so we went to a place called Zapiecek, ...

The main square market has some amazing painting sellers and a vast array of amber but we only buy water.....very controlled of me ;)
We return to the hotel whizzing up the 20 floors in the elevator one last time to collect our bags and then taxi it in the heat to the station (3 pounds well spent!)

We then pay a visit to the area which was the Jewish getto area during WW2 - but there is nothing that remains of the original. There a now several memorials, including one standing where the people were loaded onto the railway carriages, and another which contains a simple mural which it is hard not to be moved by. It is very well conceived, as ...

Nice hotel, friendly staff, good service. Concierge was very helpful on directions and travel information (and free map).
Rooms modern, clean, good bed, nice size room. Free WiFi in the foyer/lobby. Good continental breakfast, hot food OK if you're desperate! Didn't use restaurant for lunch/dinner, high prices. (Use the Italian cafe in the shopping arcade next door, excellent!)

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Warsaw Hotel & Convention Centre
Hotel cinco estrellas fantástico
Me hospedé en este hermoso y limpio hotel por dos noches. El hotel acababa de abrir y era realmente muy bueno. Las habitaciones, el servicio y especialmente el gimnasio eran fantásticos. Nunca vi un gimnasio tan grande y hermoso. También la piscina, el spa y jacuzzi eran espléndidos. Fue realmente un pleno cinco estrellas. El único inconveniente podría ser que estaba un poco fuera del centro. Tuvimos un tiempo maravilloso y nos llevo quince o veinte minutos caminando para llegar a él, pero los taxis, que son baratos, te llevarán en siete. Sin duda recomendaría este hotel
Ich übernachtete für 2 Nächte in diesem schönen, sauberen Hotel. Das Hotel war gerade eröffnet worden und ist wirklich sehr nett. Die Zimmer, der Service und besonders das Fitnessstudio sind wundervoll; ich habe noch nie ein so großes und schönes Fitnessstudio gesehen. Auch das Schwimmbad, das Spa und der Jacuzzi waren superb. Dies ist wirklich ein 5-Sterne-Hotel. Der einzige Nachteil ist, dass es (etwas) außerhalb des Zentrums liegt. Wir hatten großartiges Wetter und gingen zu Fuß in die Innenstadt (15/20 Min.). Aber die billigen Taxis bringen einen in 7 Minuten hin. Ich kann dieses Hotel nur empfehlen.
Great modern hotel!
Hilton Warsaw is a very very very good hotel! I liked the location - only 10 minutes walk for good shopping (40 minutes walk to this beautiful Lazienki Park and a little bit less to the Old Town). I can highly recommend walking in Warsaw! The area around the hotel is definately not as bad as some people may have told you. The streets are good to walk on and there are only two construction areas nearby the hotel, and inside the hotel you know nothing about them! No noise from these construction areas. The rooms also are very quiet, we never heard anything from neighbouring rooms though there were also clients too.
The transportation system in Warsaw is cheap and working. Only about 3,2 euroes for 3 day ticket for tram, subway and buses within the city area.
The hotel itself is great! Lobby and it's furnishing is very modern with high red and wooden walls (and glass walls, of course...) and huge paintings. There are nice and comfortable sitting areas around the lobby and the lobby bar.
The stuff of the hotel were very nice. We (me and my wife) were warmly greeted by everyone who we met. They even noticed our wedding annniversary on May 20th when we were having breakfast (delicious!) as they treated us with free drink and smoothies.
We were staying in King Executive Plus room on 21st floor. The lounge services in Executive lounge on 26th floor were good, and the evening canapees served there wonderful. I must say, I've never had so good Chicken Saslik with bacon! The gravy for it was heavenly, too!
The room was at the same time very homey and chic. Check the pics! The secong best hotel room I've ever stayed - I think Conrad Bangkok has even nicer room.
The only thing which I had designed differently was the shape and the size of the tub. The tub was traditional looking and average size. Not possible for two big Finns to fit in the same tub! Everything else in the room and the bathroom was in my point of view modern. The bed was heavenly and the little sofa comfortable to sit on. Also it was very nice in the evening to take a pillow and sit on it on the wide window sill and look at the setting sun.
Working area in Executive Plus room is big! Nice glass table and comfortable chair. Executive Plus rooms are all in all a little bigger than Hilton or Deluxe rooms, and the room layout is different. Like the bed is facing the windows and the working area is behind the bed (which I really liked!).
All in all we had a wonderful stay and recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Warsaw. When we go back to Warsaw, we will stay there!
Kürzlich haben wir hier übernachtet und waren absolut beeindruckt vom Gebäude und vom Personal. Das Personal war kompetent, höflich und sprach absolut fließend Englisch! Im Gegensatz zu den meisten neuen Hotels gab es hier keine Probleme mit den Zimmern oder dem Service. Die Zimmer waren in makellosem Zustand und von sehr hohem Standard. Das Restaurantpersonal war freundlich und half uns sehr dabei, ein Gericht von der Karte zu wählen. Das Essen selbst war von hoher Qualität und wurde sehr schön präsentiert.
Das Hotel liegt 5 Min. zu Fuß von der Straßenbahn, der Shop im Hotel verkauft Tickets. Die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel sind effizient und billig, man kommt schnell in alle Stadtteile. Es gibt 3 Museen, zu denen man laufen kann und es gibt einen lokalen Supermarkt, wo der Wodka billiger ist als im "Duty Free" auf jedem Flughafen.
Zu Fuß kommt man auch schnell zu einigen Ruinen des jüdischen Ghettos (Ulica Chlodna), wo man über die Unmenschlichkeit von Menschen an Menschen grübeln kann.
Alles in allem ein ausgezeichnetes Hotel, das wir ohne zu zögern empfehlen.
We stayed here very recently and were most impressed by the premises and staff.
Tthe staff were efficient, polite and embarrasingly fluent in English! Unlike most new hotels there were no problems with the rooms or service.The rooms were spotlessly maintained and of a very high standard. The restaurant staff were friendly and very helpful in assisting us to choose our meal from an impressive menu. The food itself was of high quality, beautifully presented.
The premises are within a 5 minute walk of a tram station, the hotel shop selling the tickets for the system. The transport sytem is efficient and cheap giving rapid access to all parts. There are 3 museums within easy walking distance and a local supermarket where the vodka is cheaper than any airport "duty free".
Also within easy walking distance are some remains of the Jewish ghetto [Ulica Chlodna] where you can ponder mans' inhumanity to man.
Overall an excellent hotel which we would recommend without hesitation.
Großartiges neues Hotel - ich war begeistert!
Vom 20. - 23. April 2007 übernachtete ich im brandneuen Hilton Warsaw - das Hotel war erst seit einem Monat offen. Und ALLES war perfekt!
Das Personal war wirklich nett, alle ziemlich jung und sehr freundlich - sie hießen einen herzlich willkommen und waren begeistert, einen als Gast zu haben; schon lange habe ich mich nicht mehr so willkommen in einem Hotel gefühlt.
In 20 Min. ist man zu Fuß vom Hotel beim Präsidenten-Palast/im historischen Zentrum; es ist ein netter und unkomplizierter Spaziergang, auch als Frau alleine hatte ich nie Probleme, oder, alternativ, sind es nur 3 Minuten mit dem Taxi - wobei die Taxifahrt nur € 3 kostete - Taxis sind unglaublich billig! (Es funktioniert hier genauso wie in den anderen Städten in Mitteleuropa - man muss sie rufen, d.h. bitten Sie im Restaurant in der Stadt, Ihnen eines zu rufen, wenn man nach Hause möchte - das ist einfach und sicher).
Und man sollte nicht seinen Trainingsanzug/seine Badesachen vergessen, das Hotel hat ein fantastisches Spa & einen fantastischen Club - ein riesiges "Holmes Place", es war unglaublich!
Great new hotel - loved it!
I stayed at the brand new Hilton Warsaw 20 - 23 April 2007 - and the hotel was only open for about a month at that time. And EVERYTHING worked perfectly!
Staff was really nice, all pretty young and very friendly - very welcoming and just thrilled to be having you as their guest, haven't felt this welcome in a hotel in a long time.
The hotel is about 20 minutes walking from the Presidential Palace/Historical Centre, a nice and un-complicated walk, even as a single female never had a problem with it, or alternatively just a 3 minute hop by taxi - which costs only around 3,00 Euro for the ride - taxis are incredibly cheap! (Same system as in other Central European cities - you need to call them, so get your restaurant in town to call you one when you want to leave, easy and safe)
And bring your workout/swim gear, the hotel has a fantastic spa&club - a huge "Holmes Place", amazing!
Couldn´t be better!
We stayed for three nights during Eastern. The hotel is i bit off downtown, but connections to city center are good. A 15 mins walk get you to other major hotels in Warsaw and shopping facilities. We didn´t pay much attention to the distance at all, instead we enjoyed a great welcome and a service that is top of the line.
Rooms are big quiet and clean. If you have the possibility, book a room on the upper floors which includes entrance to the Executive floor with a wide assortment of drinks, imported liqours (best quality of course...), breakfast and snacks. Staff here is also very friendly and seviceminded. In addition you have a great city view from the 26th floor!
Travelling with children is never a problem at Hilton. This hotel really made strong efforts to meet our needs and wishes with our two year old son! They arranged dipers on a Sunday, made porridge (free of charge) and served what ever asked for in the restaurant in smaller portions to very reasonable prices.
Will definitely reccomend this hotel and look forward to get back either in business or pleasure!
Well, this is not to say the Hilton Warsaw is a bad hotel.
It is probably as good as any other brand new Hilton elsewhere.
But it's location is simply bizzare. Don't be fooled by all those "central business district location" "centrally located" etc, slogans.
It's simply not true.
The neighbourhood is a post-industrial, post-ghetto, post-war-time wasteland, often reffered by Varsovites as "The Wild West" - for the west-of-town location.
This area is only now undergoing a major redevelopment and some day it might become a "central business district", but now it's plain mud, demolition equipment, caterpillar vehicles, patches of sidewalks next to shadows of XIX-century townhouses and industrial architecture. The only place in the Hilton neighbourhood to buy a refreshment is a gas station opposite the hotel entrance.
The only way to make the most of your stay at the Hilton Warsaw is to use a cab constantly - there is no public transportation on Grzybowska street. Walking out of the hotel can be a shock!
And don't be fooled, the centre of Warsaw it is not.
The downtown district of Warsaw, in which our new hotel is located, is called Wola. There is a corporate presence in the immediate hotel vicinity (e.g.: Bank Pekao headquarters, Warsaw Trade Tower, etc). Additionally are a number of exciting new developments on Grzybowska street.
The main landmark of Warsaw is the Palace of Culture and Sience and this is a maximum 15 minute stroll away from the hotel.
There is public transportation, restaurants and bars available on Grzybowska street and close by our new hotel - contrary to the reviewers comments.
Therefore, the subjective comments of the reviewer on our location are misleading in our opinion and we want to point out again, that the hotel is still a construction site and not open to public.
Visit us - to see yourselves! I am sure you'll be very positively surprised!
