... was lined with photos after it was wrecked in the war & has an austere interior after its rebuild. From there we walked into a nearby park & admired fountains & play areas full of people jogging, pushing prams & sunbathing on the grass.
Returning towards the hotel we had a couple of terrible coffees but got on to internet access at last. Our 4 star hotel wanted us to pay $18 a day for wi-fi, which we thought was a terrible cheek.

Less civilised places relegate Musical Chairs to childrens parties - Warsaw has interactive benches that play Chopin at you - cant get much more cultured than that! Spotted Mr C's Heart in a church yesterday and his body is buried in Pere Lachaise in Paris - already seen and photographed!

... that represents Polish culture and history restored. It was not until 1971 when the Soviet government finally relented and allowed the Poles to start rebuilding the Castle. Funded entirely by donations from Poles living in Poland and abroad, the task began to reclaim a lost cultural icon. Opened to the public in 1984, it speaks to the resolve of Poles who turned a pile of rubble into a masterpiece. It’s a truly incredible sight to see walking ...
... Museum was phenomenal- probably the best thing I did in Warsaw. It was a newer more experiential type of museum- think Newseum style museum.
The museum told the story of the Warsaw Uprising. Poland was taken over by the Nazi's and Soviets (this is when the Nazi's and Soviets were still allies) in 1939. Poland had a huge underground resistance movement that built up during the war. The following few paragraph's are a long history lesson, so feel free to skip if ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mamaison Hotel Le Regina Warsaw
First the good points. The Regina is perfectly situated on the very edge of the old town. It's in a far better location, for example, than the business hotels such as the Marriott which are in the ugly modern part near the Palace of Culture and quite a walk from the old town.
I adore this hotel
A fantastic oasis in the heart of old town. Modern in design, but extremely cozy. Rooms are impeccably designed, the bathrooms are amazing - huge with fabulous tubs, rainshower heads and really nice amenities. Staff is very helpful and accomodating. Hotel is perfect for business or pleasure with very reasonable rates.
Brand new hotel in downtown Warsaw....wonderful clean, comfortable, and stylish rooms. Staff is excellent, food is excellent!!!
If you are traveling in Warsaw and are looking for the best hotel intown, book Le Regina. It is a small hotel and the location is fabulous!!! You will not be disappointed
Fit for a Queen
14 month old stylish, elegant and well situated hotel. The staff is eager to please,,,,,they welcome detailed info about you in order to make your stay special. For me it was a delicious surprise chocolate/ pear charlotte cake for my birthday. Arranged pickup service at airport and they were timely and very responsive via email when my incoming flight was cancelled and I was rerouted arriving 6 hours late. Laptop on a desk for free fast internet access in the lobby. The pool is a bonus and along with sauna is open 24 hrs.
Found a remarkable rate on line but note: breakfast is not included. An elegant room with an adequate selection sporting a stiff $28 price per person.
A fantastic high-end hotel!
We spent 3 days at Hotel Le Regina. This hotel has a great location at the edge of the picturesque and beautiful fifteen centry (rebuilt) old town of Warzaw. The hotel is new and stylish with everything you expect from a five star hotel and the boutique style and size makes it very special. The staff is fantastic. They are attentive, pleasantly kind and discrete. The restaurant and food is by far the best we had in Warzaw. This is one of the best hotels we have stayed at ever and we will highly recommend it others!
We stayed at Hotel Le Regina three (3) nights, June 1 through June 4, 2005. The room was chic and comfortable. The entire staff at Le Regina is extremely attentive, friendly and professional. The location is terrific - a short walk to the Old Town Square. The staff made dinner recommendations upon request. One such recommendation was the restaurant Dom Polski for traditional polish food. Dom Polski is approximately a fifteen minute cab ride from Le Regina. We enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the polish cuisine and good service. A find of our own we really enjoyed was the Restauracja "Bazyliszek" located at Rynek Starego Miasta 1/3 (Old Town Square). We had a wonderful experience at Restauracja "Bazyliszek" and highly recommend it. Overall, we had a wonderful trip to Poland (Cracow, Gdansk and Warsaw). In our opinion, the Polish people were very pleasant. Our accommodations in each city were four and five star hotels. However, Hotel Le Regina is special. In fact, we visited the famous Bristol Hotel in Warsaw for comparison and we were not particularly impressed. We are very pleased with our choice and experience.
Terrific location, world class rooms
The location is on a quiet street near old town. It's away from the signature "ministry of culture" building (which is soviet era blah) and the main shopping (which isn't much). Rooms are world class, boutique hotel chic.
I stayed in Le Rgegina for 3 nights in November 2004, shortly after it re-opened and found it to be excellent in every respect. I was in Warsaw just to look around during some down time on a business trip to Europe. For this purpose, the Hotel has a great location right next to the old town, fine architecture & design and good value for money. I would not recommend paying 3 times as much to stay in the Meridien/Bristol, the city's erstwhile finest address.The hotel is small enough to be really homely and the staff are exceptional. I agree with an earlier reveiewer that the restaurant is superb and also that the breakfasts were memorable. The best scrambled eggs I have ever eaten anywhere in the world. And it takes something to make something special out of scrambled eggs?!
This is a fine establishment, the staff have obviously been hand-picked as they are more than fantastic. Nothing is a bother to them at all and they are extremely helpful and friendly. It is a small luxury hotel and thoroughly deserves this title. Tomas and Magda were outstanding during our visit as was the Food and Beverage manager (whos name we didn't catch!) and even the Bell Men were fantastically helpful, calling cabs, recommending restaurants etc. The Hotel itself is a master craft, a fine fine hotel, designed to perfection. You will like this hotel a lot. It is infact in the New Town but a stones throw from the Old town (once you cross through the Barbican you are in the new town!), the rooms are fantastic and the bathrooms are by and far the best we've seen. There is a small pool and sauna which looks equally delightful. There is a restaurant that serves fantastic cuisine and the breakfasts are to die for - everything from Rice Krispies to Smoked Salmon! Forget to stay here at your peril !!
Le Regina - Wonderful Experience
We just returned from a long week end in Warsaw and we stayed at Le Regina brand new 5 stars hotel. The hotel opened 2 weeks ago. Room are refined and bathroom really nice. 2 colors (dark wood and stone). Very nice fresco in the rooms designed by Polish artist. Friendly staff. Furthermore, Le Regina is the ONLY hotel located in the old town so very convenient for tourist. Price is really affordable. 110 Euros for a Deluxe Double king size bedroom. We will come back for sure !
