I did make it to Aunt Zosia's for a delicious obiad and later, watched our now famous volleyball team beat Germany in the Hubert Wegner Tournament.

There always seems to be a reason for everything. After several attempts at trying to get on the Hop On Hop Off bus, we gave up and went to Saski Park to look for a letter box. Didn't find one, but the square next to ...
Warsaw, the uprising and lasers light shows, beat that.
We found the house of Alex (our CS host) with ease, and it was quite a house. Not far outside of town he lives with his father who is quite the character in a very nice place. We were warmly greeted with a cup of tea and talk of a night out. Went into town to some light drizzle and had our guided tour courtesy of Alex and Carolina (Alex's partner). Took us to a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Hotel Warsaw
InterContinental great place to stay
We stayed in an executive suite on the 140 th floor.Great view
Room was excellent - large comfortable bed, lots of clean towels. Good room service
Staff were so helpful. Everyone could speak english was great for us.
The food is wonderful breakfast, lunch and snacks at anytime of the day.
Has a nice piano bar and then a more trendy bar in the basement.
Great leisure facilities on top floor.
We could also use the excecutive lounge - free food, drink and internet access.
Would definitely stay here again
Very well located. Do not miss the pool and the jacuzzi in the 43rd floor with spectacular views. Everything in the hotel is totally new.
If you are going to Warsaw, I strongly recommend it!
If you would like a superb hotel in Warsaw, offering excellent service, wonderfull rooms and great food at a reasonable price, I reccomend the Warsaw Intercontinental.
Upon Aariving at the hotel reception late in the evening, we were met by a most courteous, efficient and professional lady, who immediately made all of us feel at home and at ease (this was particularly helpfull for some members of our party). A minor problem with one of the rooms was rectified immediately.
The rooms exceeded our expectations. They were spacious, pleasently decorated with a wonderful bathroom (with both a bath and a walk-in shower), one of the best I have seen. The bed was very comfortable, the housekeeping was impecable and the "turn down" service in the evening was welcome after a long tourist day. The breakfast was a delight. If you are considering a visit to Warsaw, try the Intercontinental.
Great Hotel - beats many US 4-5-stars I've stayed in
Great hotel that has excellent service. Rooms were spacious and very nicely decorated and brand new! Pool on upper floor is great and has beautiful views of downtown and entire city. Everyone speaks pretty good English so Polish not necessary at all. I got a great 99 euro weekend rate which made it even better. I'd come back in a minute - location is right downtown so very central and close to all the main tourist sites.
Great hotel, amazing value for money
You can't go wrong here. This is a brand new five star (opened Nov 2003) and is the tallest building in Warsaw. It is half apartments and half hotel, with the hotel on floors 30+, so every room gets an amazing view. The swimming pool and jacuzzi on the 45th floor has superb vistas. There are three restaurants and a bar at ground level, all relatively cheap by London standards.
The hotel is well decorated in muted creams and browns. Excellent bathrooms. I strongly recommend a suite given how cheap the hotel is. I had a corner suite (so even better views) with two TV's, a sofa, a daybed, two armchairs, a desk, two wardrobes, bathroom and separate guest toilet.
The location is not bad. It is about 10 minutes walk to the 'Royal Route' and 20 minutes to the Old Town. The hotel has a fleet of cheap taxis if you want a lift, or the metro is about five minutes walk away.
Two things to note: get the hotel to meet you at the airport as its so cheap (Zl 50 - 13 Euros). Internet is quite expensive (Zl 60 per hour in the business centre) but net cafes (there is one next door in Central Station) are only Zl 3-4 per hour!
You can't go wrong with your stay here, and I strongly recommend it.
Great hotel, excellent staff
Stayed here in a deluxe room for 3 nights 90 euro a night. Large comfortable room with desk and a view of the Palace of Culture and Technology. About 20 minutes walk to the Old Town. The hotel picked us up at the airport for 50PLn.
Staff were at all times attentive and requirements were filled quickly. The top floor pool complex is excellent - sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and decent size pool.
My only gripes were the high cost of internet access, and the poor value room service. We had breakfast out most days, but I got a continental breakfast delivered one morning, and it was tiny for the 55PLn (not a lot of money comparitivly I guess).
Happy to stay here again.
One of the best
Fantastic Hotel. Stayed there 3 weeks ago and thought it was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in - compares well with 5* hotels in UK at less than half the price. We payed 75 euros which included breakfast.
Room was on 33rd floor and had a fantastic view over the Palace of Culture as did the swiming pool and gym at the top of the hotel.
On the first night we didn't fancy going out to the town due to late arrival and chose to eat at one of the hotel restaurants - the one on the floor below the reception - sorry but can't remember the name but the food was great and cheap by western hotel standards.
This hotel is just over a year old and as you would expect immaculate. Caters more for the corporate market and rather crowded at the weekend. The corner room was roomy and the bathroom fantastic (bath and seperate shower). Great views as the hotel rooms start on 22nd floor. Great rates. Staff extrmely polite and helpful. Manager superb. I was staying alone on business and felt very safe.
It's really great hotel and good location.
The view from my 39th floor room was great.
And the most surprising is the fact that it is possible to have room for only 75 Euro + 13% taxes per night.
Warsaw intercontinental hotel a nice surprise
We stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel in Warsaw this weekend. Our first time there and in Warsaw. The hotel is just a year old so you can expect things are still in very good condition - and they are. The rooms are stylish, roomy and nicely appointed. However, the hotel seems to cater to the business crowd so the decor might seem a bit corporate or cold to some. We liked it, though. And the bathrooms are modern and impressive. We had both a bathtub and a separate shower.
The hotel gym has to be about the most impressive and well put-together gym I've seen in a long time. An added bonus is that it's at the top floor. So the views of the city are wonderful. There's also a lap pool, sauna and steam room.
The room rates were excellent. We found an Internet rate of only 75 euros a night. It included breakfast - a really fab spread. Plus, we got one night at half rate once we discovered a promotion the hotel was having with SkyEurope airlies - the airline we took to Warsaw.
The hotel is within five minutes walking distance of Warsaw Central Station and a short cab ride away from the city's historic old town area.
Our stay at the Intercontinental made our visit to Warsaw exceptional.
