... Lodz to visit. Amanda then came outside and they said they were going to a club. So we asked if we could come and they said yes! They took us down this little alley to a place called Chocolate. It was all locals, mostly young people and it was a blast. The basement was a dance floor and we tore it up pretty good. We made good friends with all of them and it turned out to be a great call for Amanda to push me to talk to them ...

Warsaw should not be your single travel destination but is really nice to throw into a trip. It is really relaxed compared to other capital cities and has a San Francisco feel to it. Great metro and tram system and very friendly people. Wish I could go to Krakow and see Auschwitz but maybe next trip. If you come stay in Pepe Hostel. Amazing service and amenities.

... museum and was shown what it would look like as a way to encourage you to come back. I really want see the final exhibition, eventually, but I promise unless I have money I will not visit Warsaw in 2014. I spent the evening dining with Anna and her husband, we discussed many topics, that I will bring up later. The next day I took the budget bus company Polski bus to Gdansk. I paid about ten dollars for a five hour bus ride ...
We were up very early this morning, bags to the bus at 715am so we could start our drive to Warsaw. We had two major stops along the way and we knew it was going to be a long emotional day. Our first stop was one I had been dreading since I booked the trip...not because I didn’t believe that a visit to Auschwitz wasn’t important, but I was worried about how I would be able to cope when faced with the site of so much sadness and death. ...
... had quite a good knowledge of local history and also of Poland as a whole. Towards the end of the tour we went into a local restaurant where we were told of the customs about drinking vodka. We were all given a shot of vodka and a small snack to go with it. As it would be impolite to refuse a vodka when offered one even the non-drinkers in our group got into the spirit of the occasion.
After about two hours the tour wound up at the starting point and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Victoria Warsaw
Great Beds, Nice Touches
I got a discounted rate from the web site, and thought it was a real bargain. The rooms were large, with desk, couch, and coffee table. The bed had about five king size down pillows, and a down comforter. The room also had complimentary coffee/tea service. The location is pretty good for a walk to the restored Old Town of Warsaw, and is walkable from the train station if you do not have more than a backpack. I did not try the breakfast since I had an early morning flight. The bus 175 to the airport stops about a block and a half from the hotel.
I have stayed here about a dozen times, probably 25-30 nights, all since April 2005
This is the hotel to stay in if you travel to Warsaw! The staff here is so friendly and helpfull, you just feel like you're the most important person in the world. Really, they are amazing. The facilities are above average, but not the best. But you relly don't spend so much time there; if you're not in the room, you're out exploring the amazing city life in Warsaw. The location of the hotel could not be better, with just minutes walk from the Old Town and other great facalities. The breakfast is very good, you get the perfect start to the day here!
From far the best hotel in town
I am used to stay a lot in Warsaw and it is from far the best hotel in town
Fantastic hotel with wonderful facilities (pool, sauna) and very helpful staff, great breakfasts and spacious, clean rooms. Good location for exploring the many different areas of Warsaw. Avoid the bar though - it's very expensive. Would love to stay here again, easily deserves the 5 stars.
Never have we experience such consciencious attention to the wishes of a guest from a hotel concierge. All of our email messages requesting information prior to the trip were answered within five minutes with extremely helpful information. We were able to arrange private tours and times of convenience to us very efficiently. The breakfasts that were included with our room were superb, and the rooms comfortable and quiet.
We returned to this hotel for one night on Thursday 1 September 2005. Located in the University quarter, towards the reconstructed old town, it is away from the noise and clamour of Warsaw Central railway station (where the Novotel is located). The imposing building looks out on a huge square. The hotel has a spacious entrance hall with tasteful new furniture introduced since we last stayed there. This time we paid EUR 125 including buffet breakfast (look for a rate which includes breakfast as otherwise it costs EUR 20 which it is not worth)
The Sofitel Victoria Warsaw is a very nice hotel in a good location. Our room was on the top floor (7th) and it was on the back side of the hotel with a view of a small park. The rooms on the front of the hotel overlook a large open square that is used for special events and ceremonies. It is easy walking distance to old town and there is a bank machine on the first floor of the hotel. Our room had a 110 volt outlet for US/Canadian guests...very nice feature. We were in Warsaw for a conference at this hotel so we did not consider any other hotels. While walking towards Old Town, the Meridian Bristol Hotel looked amazing with wonderful art deco details. We might consider that hotel if we return. The room was larger than expected and high speed internet was free. CNN and BBC News were available on the TV. Our room had a decent sized safe and a mini-bar. Nice marble bathroom but the bed was very hard. There is a large pool in the basement with a small work out area. The breakfast buffet is good but not a bargain. We paid 85PL or about US$27.00 per person. The airport is about 15 minutes away.
We were made to feel extremely welcome
We stayed at the Sofitel Victoria Warsaw on 12th and 13th October 2004 and found the hotel absolutely excellent. From arrival onwards, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and were always on hand to book restaurants and help with directions to places. The hotel was in an extremely good position for exploring the old town comfortably by foot and the area around it felt safe. We would highly recommend it.
I stayed in the Sofitel Victoria in Warsaw last October (2003) for my silver wedding anniversary. The hotel is excellent, the staff are very helpful and pleasant and the restaurant is quiet, comfortable and very good.
We loved it and found the location, only minutes from the old city, was perfect.
I would recommend it to anyone.
