Travel Blogs from Warsaw
It's hard to believe, but my time in Warsaw ends tomorrow, and once again I will be on the move, this time headed for the final destination, Krakow. So I want to take a moment to talk about something that hasn't been brought up yet in this blog and that is apologizing. I've talked a lot about efforts by the Germans to commemorate those who were …
It has already been mentioned before, but I'm going to mention it again. The obvious dynamic between Germany and Poland in terms of the Holocaust is one of perpetrators and victims respectively. These two general identities certainly shape the memory landscape that we see in these two countries. If you remember from my posts about memory in Germany …
Okay first of all, I'm sorry again for not writing for a few days. Upon arriving in Warsaw, our group got caught in the rain, and I believe my computer got wet -- so the keyboard is kaput. It took me a couple days to navigate the Polish shopping malls to find somewhere that could help me out, and long story short, I have a temporary fix and …
Yes I know.. I've talked a lot about documents and archives and tangible memory. But I'm going to do it a bit more, for two reasons:
#1 - It's just too important to not keep talking about it.
#2 - I came across an incredible story that I want to share with you. Here's how it goes.
In the Fall of 1940, the Nazis began the …
Today is my first day in Warsaw, which means two things. First, yay! now I'm in Poland!! but secondly, this also means that my time in Germany has come to an end. It's bittersweet.
So this point in my trip marks several transitions. Two different countries, two different cultures. I leave behind beer and sausages, and move on to vodka and …

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Warszawa Centrum Warsaw
It was about 2 years ago that I booked a room for 7 days via hotels[-].
Good location, nice rennovation
We too stayed at the Novotel during their major renovation time. The refurbished rooms are very stylish and comfortable. The buffet breakfast has something for most tastes presented in a very attractive manner. The hotel has a bus stop right outside which is handy for getting to the old city center very efficiently. The only negative thing I encountered at the hotel was a very unhelpful and rude reception staff on more than one occasion.
Handily located Novotel centrum
Two night break spent in this hotel, excellent value for rooms.
Rooms modern and well equipped, bathroom spacious and well appointed.
Only problem at present hotel still having renovation work done with scaffolding, workman and associated dust present.
Buffet breakfast excellent standard with good choice and plenty of variety.
Bar overpriced when you can walk outside and find a cheap Irish bar across the road as well as several pavement bars adjacent to the hotel.
Main asset is the fact it is so centrally located with railway station across the square plus the main shopping area nearby.
If making your own way from airport terminal use bus number 175 which passes hotel.
Excellent location. room was lovely, power shower in ensuite, everything very clean. Only problem was being woken up at 6.30 by workmen every morning as the hotel is under construction, scaffolding all around building. Would definitely stay there again though.
The hotel is still under major renovations. All the windows are covered with scarfolding and you might see a construction worker walk by your 9th floor room. I was awakened to loud drilling directly outside my window at 8am!! When it rained, it leaked through the window and the entire carpet got soaked. The ceiling in the lobby leaked terribly during the rain too creating large puddles.
Warsaw was an unusual choice for a city break and for this reason I played "safe" and made a reservation at a "chain" hotel.
We are "repeater guests"!
We have been staying at the Novotel several times - going back to
the days when it was "The Forum". The Forum Days were EXCELLENT!!
We (size of party: 2 - 4) are usually in Warsaw in September. Now it
seems the Reception Desk is understaffed - long lines, long waits.
The personnel seemed "edgy/impatient" - probably overworked.
I had questions about my bill regarding a "promised discount" -
but ended up paying what they insisted was correct - only because
there was a long line and I did not want to cause more problems.
(Did not get the discount!). Wonderful breakfasts; very good service -
servers, head waiters, etc. We enjoy the convenient location.
In the heart of Warsaw
We booked this hotel because of its located at the center of the city and good price for a *** hotel in the same area. The culture palace and Warsaw main shopping mall is just on the other side of the street (which is main street of Warsaw). The hotel was newly renovated. The booking system didnt work when we wanted to check in, but later when it worked we got the room with best sight so we can see the whole culture palace from our room window. The room is quite big and breakfast is good to.
