The room is spacious and comfortable. The bathroom is huge and clean. The free wifi is reliable and fast and the free using of nespresso machine in the room is a very nice touch. Breakfast is good, they even serve smoked salmon for it! I can't believe I paid only $170 for two nights in this hotel!

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Centrum Hotel Warsaw
Loved the Raddisson
We stayed at this hotel for my husband's 50th birthday in October 2005,and had a great time. Centrally located between the old and new town, once you found your bearings getting around was fairly easy. It is essential to have a good guide book and map as nearly all directions are in Polish, and outside the holtels very little English is spoken. A comfortable pair of shoes is also essential as most of the attractions are spread over a wide area, and many of the streets are cobbled.
The hotel was light and airy with large bedroom and lovely underfloor heating in the bathroom. The gymnasium, sauna and pool were of a good size and after a long day walking for hours on end it was nice to relax in the pool before setting off in search of our evening meal.Breakfast at the hotel was superb, with a wide selection of both hot and cold foods. We did find that coffee, tea and alcoholic drinks in the hotel were pricier than what we're used to. However we found fantastic food at a reasonable price even in the old market square. Although we had no complaints we did direct a few questions towards hotel staff all of whom proved both helpful and knowledgable. If we return to Warsaw in the future we will have no hesitation in staying at the Raddisson again. It was a memorable experience. One note of caution there is a hotel taxi to take you to the airport on departure but it is double the price of a street cab
Just returned from Warsaw and although this was an exhausting few days it was very enjoyable. Hotel was beautiful and staff very helpful. Rooms were nice size and bathroom large, with large powerful shower, no bath but that didn't other us. plenty of fluffy towels and bathroom goodies.
Hotel transport was cheaper than calling taxi's and restaurant was lovely with plenty of choice and not too expensive.
Coffee was great and if you had it in the lobby, you could people watch, one of our mornings we had great excitement as it was full of FBI types and we knew something was going down, so spent our time waiting and then the new President arriced with the biggest armed convoy i have seen, so that added a bit of culture to a rather lazy morning!
Buffet breakfast was plentiful and also very popular, good place to peoplewatch again
All in all i would stay at the radisson again
Stayed 2 nights, loved it. Spacious room, very clean, all staff extremely friendly & helpful.
About a 20 min walk to old town, which is ok in the daytime but recommend taxi @ night. Try to use hotel tansport if available, not as expensive as local taxis.
Fine but not dandy
A well located luxury hotel with an impressive frontage - easy to reach from the Warszawa Centralna Train Station and by taxi from the airport. Within walking distance to Old Town, Nowy Swiat shopping street and other attractions.
The hotel is well appointed but it lacks that something special. It's ideal for those incredibly annoying business travellers who think they are important and rich. We paid 44 GBP for a room how much did you pay!! Who is the mug? Hotel is also perfect for tourist groups. Excellent reception and service staff, I don't know how they can tolerate the arrogance of some of the business guests.
Rooms are nothing spectacular, average 5 star furnishings with a standard bathroom. Easy to flood due to the shower screen not being flush with the wall. Uncomfortable beds, 1 pillow was not enough, 2 was too much. Familiar scenario across continental Europe. We have stayed in 4 Radissons across Europe and unfortunately this came bottom of the chart for us.
Hotel bar is very poor compared to that of say the Radisson in Cologne. It is small and compact with not much going for it. Prices more expensive than Britain! (Tip: Go to the 24 hour kiosk about 300 metres as you walk out of the hotel and purchase beer there to take to your room) The hotel restaurant looks good but we did not dine there. Taxi to airport costs 50 PLN standard rate (about 8.50 GBP)
Overall, very well worth the money we paid to stay here but next time I will stay elsewhere as there are so many wonderful new hotels in Warsaw now.
Fantastic Hotel, very helpful staff
I stayed at the Radisson SAS Centrum in July 2005, and found the hotel to be excellent value, and also to provide excellent service.
On check in we were advised that our room rate did not include breakfast, and were advised that breakfast would cost €20/each, or we could upgrade for €30night to a Business Class room, which included a full breakfast for 2. The room that we stayed in was large and provided all the comforts you would expect of a 4/5 star hotel. Breakfast was excellent, with everything you could ever want!
The location of the hotel for tourists as we were was not ideal but not prohibitive. The hotel is around 1.5km from the Old Town (Stare Miasto), you can walk through the Ogrod Saski (Park), which makes it a pleasant walk to the Old Town.
I would very much recommend the Radisson SAS Centrum!
I enjoyed staying at the Radisson Centrum on a recent tour of Eastern Europe. The room was very clean, and I had a great bathroom, well-stocked with an attractive variety of citrus gel soaps and shampoos. It also had a walk-in shower (you may have to request this). It may be in a better location for business travelers than for tourists, as it's a half-hour walk to the old town - though you can also take a bus. The staff was wonderful - very friendly and upbeat.
I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in May, handy location, frinedly staff and good sized rooms.
Definitely recommend staying here if you can get a cheap deal :p
Big Expectations - Poorly Met!
Stayed at the Radison Warsaw Poland last month. The purpose of the visit was for leisure. The hotel's location is very central and within easy reach of most attractions.
The hotel is rated on various web sites here as a "5 star" establishment. From my experiences of 5 star hotels, the level of service and facilities are of the hghest standards. Unfortunately, the reality was that for me, the Rasisson SAS rates as a 3 - 4 star hotel.
On arrival, initial impressions are of a hotel lobby that is tired, outdated and in obviously need of updating. The reception staff though very polite and professional, were very quick encouraing me to part with my hard earned cash and upgrade to a higher quality rooom. I did, and in doing so my expectations of 5 star luxury were further raised, though poorly met.
For example, one bathrobe for two people for the duration of the 3 nights despite two people staying the room;, left without towels two occasions, bath area cleaned with previous days towels, exceptionally poor tolietries for a purported 5 star hotel.
Breakfast was varied with a good selection, though concentrated fruit juices as opposed to fresh juice was very noticable by many guests.
On a more positive note, the leisure centre was very attractive and a pleasure to use.
In summary, this hotel is not 5 star. A more realistic apprisal is that of a good 3 star hotel. There are many many areas where this establishment could improve upon to delivery a higher level of service and facilities.
I stayed at the Radisson-Warsaw during the weekend of 8 Apr-10 Apr 05.
The location is great and within walking distance of many Tourist sites. The Hotel staff was very helpful and spoke very good English. Everyone greeted me and had a smile on their faces when talking with me. Not only was the service good, but the attitudes of the employees were commendable also.
The rooms were very clean and contained all the traveler amenities that you need (iron, trouser press, stocked refrigerator, and city guide). The staff even arranged for a private tour of the City, since I had overslept and missed the morning tour.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Great Hotel Good value for money
We stayed here in March, there was thick snow on the ground, but hotel very warm. We went for my husbands birthday, they offered us an upgraded room for 50 euros a night extrs. It turned out to be a suit, with two seperate rooms a beautiful bathroom, two tvs, really fab. Very nice resturant serving mostly steaks. The buffet breakfast was great, nice and hot for a change as they only put out a little at a time. Very good position, a 5 minute walk to the main shops, a short taxi ride to the beautiful old town, well worth a visit. The hotel sent a taxi for us it cost £10 each way, but be sure to tell them which terminal you are arriving and leaving from, as we were dropped off at the wrong one and had quite a walk in the snow. If we were to go back would most certinally use them again.

We dove by the Palace of Culture and Science also know as Stalin's Castle. It was to be the 8th Moscovite building but Stalin decided to build it in Warsaw instead. After he built it he told the Poles that they had to pay for it. The Poles weren't happy about it being built in the first place but even less so when they were told they would have to …
Well, 30 plus hours of travel and waiting took it's toll. Yolande passed out against the window shade and I eventually woke up with a sore head. I worked out from the dribble puddle in the middle of the aisle that I had slumped over into the aisle and the the trolley dollies kept bashing my head as they trundled past with their treats.
After the hotel breakfast we were wrapped up and out the door, heading for the big gothic looking building imposing itself upon the city. Even if we hadn't wanted to go there we would have been drawn like the Marshmallow Man in Ghostbuster was. As wrapped up as we were, it still wasn't enough for me, I had been completely unprepared for this cold. …
The last day of any holiday always feels tainted by the need to get to the airport later, but it was stil there to be enjoyed. Billy saw this differently however, and wanted to hang out at the hotel for a while longer (it is his industry I guess, so he has a professional interest). So we arranged to meet at 12pm in the first bar we had been to on …
This morning, we went a tour of Warsaw that includes both banks of the Vistula River. We visited Lazienki Park to view Chopin's Monument which was spectacular with the colorful autumn leafs. We then traveled along the Royal Route with its historic monuments and residences and stopped in the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto. We also walked through the cobbled …
