Travel Blogs from Warsaw
... a region of lakes and forests. We stopped for lunch at a small local restaurant and I had the local potato and sausage soup - very tasty. We arrived in Warsaw around 4pm. We had a very nice hotel room - very bright and airy but couldn't get the wi fi in our room to work so they changed our room to one that wasn't so nice. We found the trick to to the wi-fi - we had to stand between the bathroom and the door to ...
... Poland, a city I had quite enjoyed in the few short hours I saw it last year. I was fortunate enough this time around, that it would be far cheaper to fly back to the States on Thursday, rather than Wednesday, which meant that my final day would technically be a "day off". But first...probably the busiest work day I've had on the road.
After the early morning wake up call, and nonsense at the airport, the cab ride from the ...
... a park dedicated to Chopin (who lived here the first 20 years of his life), the Old Town historic district.
After a lunch break we took a tour of the palace, which also had to be rebuilt after the war. They used paintings and pictures that artists had done of the palace and it’s surrounding areas to recreate it accurately. It was quite beautiful. The original castle dates back to the 1500’s and was the residence of Polish ...
We decided that we would go up the Palace to get a view of Warsaw from above (usually the best views of a city are from above - eg. Prague, Cesky Krumlov). Only trouble was that we somehow managed to jam the belongings locker with 2 zloty. After a long 30+ minute delay we managed to take the lift up and see Warsaw from the top. The view was extremely nice (you could see people ice skating underneath looking like ants).
After that we ...

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.
