... and Schwiec. We made our way back to the hostel with much higher spirits.
As the hostel bar only sold wine by the bottle we decided to make a night of it and met a whole new lovely community. We went on to a club having played drinking games (incl drinking Jenga when we embarrassed a yank who was a sore loser).
Our train to Krakow was only 2.5 hours so being hungover wasnt too much of a ...
... to have some along with herring. When in Poland, there aren't many excuses you can use to refuse the vodka - you're either pregnant, driving, riding a bike or religious. So it was a toast and a big group of us with vodka shots around noon today. Burn! But the pickle and herring sandwich made it all better.
At the town hall, civil weddings were taking place. Quite interesting to see as they throw zlotys (Polish coins, yes real currency) ...
Today we traveled to Warsaw. Our day started off with an uneventful ride to the train station, helped a great deal by our driver who showed us where to go, to the point of taking us directly to the platform. We thought we had it made.
When our train pulled into the station, we boarded what we thought would be our car. It was full of people, many of whom were not thrilled to see us block their paths with our big ...

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.
