Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Metropol Warsaw
Ok the rooms aren't up to date in the decorating department. Its not that noisy, those who think it is obviously havent stayed in downtown manhatten!
Its near to the train station, and metro. The staff are helpful and the breakfasts are amazing, never seen such a choice of tea bags!! If you dont want to spend a lot, then stay here, a great base for tourists, who don't want 5* luxury. I will stay there on my next visit no problem.
Its a Dump
Was looking for a reasonably priced clean hotel close to the railway station and the Metropol looked to tick all the boxes. However when I told the business man from Warsaw his look said it all.
A reasonably small but nice reception area but the rooms were very disappointing with camp beds and brown dreary sixties furniture. Leaflets advertising the services of ladies were scattered around and at night the bar seemed to be populated with ageing women looking to offer more than polite conversation!
Breakfast was ok but overall a depressing dispiriting experience. Subsequently discovered I could have stayed at Le Meridien Bristol for an extra £12 per night
Metropol. Dont even think about reserving its a dump
Tourist Class Hotel
Centrally located near train station.No problem with street noise if window closed. Furniture in cheaper rooms old and outdated.Better furniture in more expensive rooms.Hotel in need of renovation and updating.Good breakfast buffet.Desk staff speaks English.I'd give this hotel 2 stars.
Stayed for 2 nights in November. Hotel located at main junction but noise not a problem. Walking distance to v late clubs. Rooms are clean but need modern decor. Generous buffet breakfast available and quiet bar off reception.
Central basic hotel
a basic cheap but extremely well located hotel. nothing really do add to the other reviews except that the hotel has a casino now with 24 hour bar which can be very useful for a late night cap.
Need a face lift, but clean
Stayed for one night at the Metropol Hotel. It is definitely located in the center of the city walking distance to everything you might want to visit... we didn't have a problem with the noise but there was a big screen advertisment over the entire front of the building that was lit up all night long... the room didn't get very dark as a result. The room was clean, even though the place hasn't been redecorated since the 60's. The breakfast buffet was good though... lots of fresh fruit!
Not the best
Just returned from a few days in Warsaw and i stayed in the Metropole. The other review i read mentioned that it was central (which it was) but a boy was it noisy. It is at the citys main intersection 24 lanes of trafic at least 8 tram lines and thats before you mention the under ground. Its very noisy ! I was awake from about 6.30 am with the noise from the traffic (the locals obviously like to get up early) The hotel its self isnt that great the reception area is fine but the rooms are very old fasioned and in real need of modernisation The Shower in the bathroom was hand heald and to short to reach above your head the bath was all water marked you get the picture. The beds were a bit like camp beds they moved when you sat down on them, they were not what i would concider to be hotel quality. generally not great. The staff were fine (you will find that the polish are not the friendliest bunch) but thats as much as i can say. There could have been a good view but the hotel had rented the frontage out for advertising the new ford focus (we were just under the front wheel see the picture) to end there were some nice hotels in the same area if i was to return i would stay in one of those even if it did cost a few £$ more
Just got back from a week in Poland where I spent 2 nights at the Metropol. Good location right in the heart of the city on a busy junction near the main railway station and a metor station. Not really a problem with noise. Staff very helpful with good English. Room was basic, 1960's decor, but most importantly clean. Adequte buffet breakfast.

... reward. All of Warsaw was rebuilt according to the Midevil style. The materials to rebuild the city were from the ruins of the original Warsaw. The Warsaw market is the only place in the world that is reconstructed to an original state, not just rebuilt. The market square is built from ruins of the city. We also went to the Chopin Memorial. He is standing under a Willow Tree; the branches look like fingers. In the summer, every Saturday, Poland brings a piano ...
The rest of the run was pure hell as the compartment just would not cool down & we were desperate by the time it reached Warsaw. It was a short drive to the hotel & after a meal we went to bed.

Had a latish start after a great breakfast & were picked up in a minibus for a tour of Warsaw. This was well organised as we started in the palace grounds of the former king of Poland. It was built in the ...
... you know............Yes Passports checked by Ukraine customs and all ok....you never know. Gosh it's bloody hot in here AC gone off and not sure how long they are going to keep us here, the Army is standing guard on station. It's now 20.51. This is the first time our passports have been viewed since we left the UK at St. Pancras. Earlier we were supplied with clean bedding in sealed plastic bags, towel, sheet, pillow case and quilt cover, somehow I don't think we're going to need ...
... for a walk to find the cafe area suggested to us from the porter. We got lost along the way!! We found a great little cafe and ordered a marguerita pizza with extra chilli and it was delicious so worth the trek. When walking back to the hotel we sort of got lost again but only sort of, we just did a major walk around in a half circle instead of an easier straight through route. Lol. Oh, well, what better way to learn about a city. The streets are very ...
... mall. You would have thought it to be any western mall. It certainly outclassed Westfield, though. We bought ourselves some pastries for lunch for consumption in the hotel room later and looked around their Saturn electrical store.
We walked back via one of those Stalin wedding cake buildings …a gift to the Poles. . .and as we entered the foyer of the Westin it poured down with rain.
