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 Furniture in cheaper rooms old and outdated.Better furniture in more expensive rooms.Hotel in need of renovation and updating.Good breakfast buffet.Desk staff speaks English.I'd give this hotel 2 stars.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.

To S: This travel blog is for you:) I hope you …
... had quite a good knowledge of local history and also of Poland as a whole. Towards the end of the tour we went into a local restaurant where we were told of the customs about drinking vodka. We were all given a shot of vodka and a small snack to go with it. As it would be impolite to refuse a vodka when offered one even the non-drinkers in our group got into the spirit of the occasion.
After about two hours the tour wound up at the starting point and ...
... there was no camp, no work & no food for the inhabitants of the ghetto. The trains simply arrived & within an hour the passengers would be gassed & cremated. It is believed that 870,000+ people were murdered on this site north of Warsaw, 800,000 of them were Jews.
It was also behind this ghetto wall that the uprising started on 1st August 1944 & for 63 days there was fierce fighting between the Nazi’s & the Polish resistance movement ...
... smoked then...
I have to hand it to Don...He has done a MAGNIFICANT job with our accomodation...The places we've stayed have all been really nice, with FANTASTIC brekkies and always for less than A$100 pn.
Don's enjoying the Audi here in Poland...Yes, D-M, where were you when we needed you? (to help start her up) He is also doing a MAGNIFICENT job driving...(on the "wrong" side of the ...
... the President's Palace; it's full of local rednecked proles and heavy smells).
We're leaving tomorrow at 4AM. We need to be very early in Bydoszcz and keeping in mind the road to Warsaw, I've added more hours to the estimate. I thought that I would see the boring cosmopolitan capital city Warsaw for a day and never was going to come back here again. Now I think otherwise: I will definitely try to visit this one-of-a-kind city at least once more. ...
