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.
Sofitel - great place
I have stayed here about a dozen times, probably 25-30 nights, all since April 2005
Large, sleek and fairly bland modern hotel, which is personally exactly what I like. Rooms are large, comfortable, and have really good bathrooms, with marble fittings. Clean
Very central and ideal for the office I visit
Nice quality bedding etc. 25 channel TV, inc CNN, Sky etc, plus many French/German/Italian
Good breakfast buffet, but expensive if added on to bill. Had room service burger once and it was poor. restaurant very nice but very expensive by Warsaw standards
Staff very polite, helpful and will do speak good English
Nice pool, 15 m long, with Sauna, and fairly small and basic gym. Sunbed
Negotiate the rate. Look up a big foreign company locally in Warsaw and say you work for them, and see what rate you get. I pay about half the published rate, and get breakfast included
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.
Imposing City hotel
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)
Room 622 had plush décor with two firm beds. Bathroom was compact, clean and modern with good toiletries (though no toothpaste nor toothbrush).
Swimming pool in basement is 15m and open 0700 Monday--Friday (later at weekends).
The hotel seems popular for up-market conferences. We should certainly stay again.
Very Nice Hotel in a Good Location
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.

... a driving tour of the city.
Our flight lands in Warsaw on time at 2pm. We collect our luggage and then make our way to the airport train station. It is about 20 minutes into the center of town, where we get off and take a taxi to our hotel. We are just blown away by the hotel (Bristol). It is a classic five-star property right next to the Presidential Palace, and a block away from Warsaw University, and just a couple of blocks from the Old ...

It's a very difficult subject because, although it seem impossible or unlikely after going through an experience like the Holocaust, there still is a struggle with anti-Semitism and racism in Poland. There are struggles with hate groups and xenophobia in countries all throughout the world. But the problem ...
... were happy! So.... we locked our bags up and went to go explore Warsaw a bit. It was getting to be almost dinnertime, so we sought out a restaurant and found one that turned out to be a chain restaurant. The food was really good though - not like any chain restaurants I am used to. Amanda had a whole trout and I had the special... turned out to be three different kinds of meat. Mine was ok but Amanda's was really good. We saw a bunch of girls drinking red beers. We ...
... Old Town and had a wander. Every church we went into had a wedding on and several had bridal parties around the corner waiting to enter for their service. It was quite incredible but easy to understand as this area of the city is lovely and the churches beautiful.
Just as the weateher decided to tip down again we found ourselves outside a very traditional family run restaurant so popped in for a late lunch of stews and goulash. I ...
