Polonia Palace Hotel
Travel Blogs from Warsaw
OK, it's time for a rant. What part of customer service don’t these upper echelon hotels understand? Hoki and I had misunderstood when the front desk told us that breakfast was served between 06:30 to 10:00 AM. We somehow had translated that to between 06:00 and 10:30 AM, but that’s not the problem. The problem was that we were seated …
In 2007, Hoki and I literally slept through Poland on our way to St. Petersburg, Russia. We had left Berlin late in the afternoon and passed through Poland in the dark, arriving at the Poland-Belarus border at 04:00AM. That wouldn't happen this time as Warsaw was our intended destination and we would be arriving early evening. Our plan was to spend …
We set out at 10am for our scheduled tour of Warsaw in a mini bus. Our first stop is to see the Chopin Monument in Royal Lazienki Park, Warsaw
Part of our 'Sights of Krakow and Warsaw Tour' we left Krakow this morning by train. The same man who transferred us to our hotel in Krakow picked us up and was a fantastic escort ! As well as telling us local knowledge along the way, he even walked us down to the platform, helped us with our luggage and deciphered our tickets and instructed us on …

Historical Traveler Reviews Polonia Palace Hotel Warsaw
I have read all the reviews and every positive you have read is ditto, ditto and then some!!.
The only surviving pre-war hotel in Warsaw. General Eisenhower stayed here as have most Polish celebrities and international diplomats.
Just returned from 4 nights at the Polonia Palace. Probably the best 4 star hotel I have stayed in in europe and better than most 5 star I have visited. Oozes class and style and in a different league to the typical chain hotels. Recently completely refurbished to a very high standard. Double bedded room was immaculate and kept spotlessly clean. Dining room took your breathe away. Breakfast was a mixture of hot and cold buffet and excellent. Lovely cafe and bar in hotel. We booked with Hotelopia and had an excellent deal. Very helpful staff.
Top class hotel in a great position just 500 metres from main railway station. Culture of Palace is also across the road.
Hotel is definitely 4-star quality with sizeable rooms and all the facilities you would expect including mini-bar (although rather expensive), satellite TV with good quality bathroom. There's also a fitness area which we didn't use.
The hot breakfasts were plentiful and varied, something for people from all countries and the staff very helpful. Would recommend to anyone.
Watch out for the Warsaw taxi drivers!!! Got conned by one - always check or fix a fare before departing. Our taxi meter shot up from 7 zloty to 23 in double quick time. Better still get the bus or tram - and there are plenty right outside the Polonia Palace.
the polonia palace in warsaw was the only hotel to remain untouched after world war II, partly because the german high command stayed there. for approx. £50 per night my husband and spent 3 fabulous nights there. it has a magnificent grand entrance and lobby but there is no pretension. the staff were extremely helpful, our room overlooked the palace of culture. the room was huge, very clean and modern and a lovely en-suite. the bar and coffe shop were very reasonably priced for such an elegant city centre hotel and had a great, relaxing atmosphere. the bus from the airport stops virtually outside the door so transport was not a problem and the train station was 500 yards away. breakfast was amazing, fish, polish, continental, cooked. you name it ,it was there to be eaten. cannot fault it.
Date stayed: July 13 & 14, 2005 (2 nights)
Polonia Palace Hotel is fantastic! The rooms are are large and spotless. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have ever had and the luxurious restaurant makes it taste even better. The location is very convenient for the train station ( if you intend travelling on a train make sure you arrive VERY early to obtain a ticket, preferably the day before - we waited in line for over an hour and missed our train to Krakow). It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the old town - but you pass so many places of interest it is well worth it. I would certainly return to this hotel.
Booked this hotel with (---). Got 3 nights incl breakfast for £135! Bargain! Hotel is beautiful, restored to the highest standards, staff are friendly and helpful. First class service in the restaurant. We had the 6 course dinner menu for a special occasion which was superb and very reasonably priced 180 Polish zlotys! The hotel breakfast is awesome as previously mentioned....a chef will cook you an omelette etc while you wait. Location is right in the middle of Warsaw.Easy walking distance to various sights and great transport links via tram/bus to where you want to go in Warsaw. I asked for a room with a good view and was rewarded by a first class view of the Palac Cultury.Rooms are modern, sat tv, air conditioned, mini bar/fridge (sound system from tv plays in the bathroom!) Had a few drinks in the Bojangles Bar which was very nicely done out.Would stay here again - no problem! Probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in!
Quite unbelievable ! Booking with "quo vadis", we only paid 60 € / night (breakfast included) for this palace.
I confirm totally the other review.
It's important to mention the splendid breakfast, the better one I have ever seen in an hotel...
Great Hotel - excellent location
Just 500 meters from the Central Train Station - the recently completely refurbished Polonia Palace Hotel stands opposite the Palace of Culture. You couln't ask for a better location - a 15PLN cab ride from the Old Tiwn and the Royal Route, 20 minute stroll along Jan PawelII Avenue to get to the Jewish Ghetto area and right in the heart of the business and major shopping areas, the location is a dream! Staff are attentive, polite and multi-lingual - ever ready to help you with your query. The place is spotless! Breakfasts are served in the restaurant which has been refurbished to its Louis XVI excellent - a great place to start the day. You can always use the Gym, Sauna and Solarium to work off any overindulgences. Highly recommended!!
