Intimate hotel with excellent service
Stayed at the Rialto on a recent business trip and was really impressed with the decor, friendly staff and intimate atmosphere. Waiter service breakfast is a delight.
Art Deco treasure
I booked this hotel as a result of reviews on Tripadvisor.I was not disappointed.As a lover of Art Deco it was for me a unique and enjoyable experience to stay in this hotel.So much care seems to have been put into period detail.Yet there inthe middle of it there is a DVD player with a plasma screen on the wall.The bathroom was bigger than some hotel bedrooms i have slept in.Only 2 minor blemishes.I thought that the breakfast at 54 zlotys was expensive and the buffet was not very extensive.Also a cup i brought with me for morning tea in my room disappeared.After i complained about this the chambermaid came to my room bringing a basket containing dried flowers 2 apples,2 bottles of wine and my broken cup neatly wrapped in cellophaneNice gesture but would have been better if they had admitted they had broken it before i found out about it.However i would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
Stylish Choice in Warsaw
Spent 3 nights at the Rialto, in a charming suite on the 5th floor. Very well designed bathroom. 2 plasma screen televisions, 1 in the bedroom, 1 in the living room. Great stereo system. Truly, a beautiful and stylish design. The hotel feels small, and the staff is somewhat serious and stiff. This may be because their English skills are limited, and this caused a few awkward moments, especially the first day. But everyone was helpful, and the restaurant serves an excellent breakfast. I was sorry to see that the restaurant did not get much business at night, as it is probably the best in town. The location is a little out of the way, but once you get your bearings, well worth it. Overall, a top-rated experience.
Almost certainly the best hotel in Warsaw
I have just returned from a stay at The Rialto with two work colleagues and we all agreed it was a beautiful hotel which, although quite pricey by Warsaw standards, by any other measure represents amazing value for money.
The rooms were beautifully appointed and furnished and the bathrooms were spectacular. It all still feels very new and reassuringly clean without being either sterile or characterless. I travel quite a bit with work and it's becoming quite unusual to find hotels that still offer guests the use of robes, slippers, proper coat hangers, high quality toiletries, a proper hairdryer and free wireless internet access, but the Rialto offers all of these and more.
Sadly, I didn't have the time to use the fitness suite but I did have a look round and the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi all looked gorgeous - much more like the kind of thing you'd expect in a top spa, and the breakfasts were very impressive too. The staff were very friendly and overall, I'd have absolutely no hesitation in either recommending this hotel to others, or returning for a social visit myself.
Best place in town
Based on the Tripadvisor reviews I stayed at this hotel and was not disappointed. Rooms were excellent and so was the service. Although some rooms can be on a small side, my room was of a decent size. My recommendation is to request a room with a large bed (a double). I also stayed at the Hotel Regina and although also exellent the stay at Rialto was more satisfying. I would not stay in any other Hotel in Warsaw but this one.
My mother and I stayed at this hotel for four nights. It was fantastic. The rooms were stunning, absolutely beautiful and spotless. The bathrooms were amazing, the beds lovely and comfortable and the bedding of beautiful standard. The hotel staff were brilliant - we had a slight problem with our shower on our first day and it was mended immediately. They were always friendly and extremely helpful with all our enquiries. This was our first trip to Poland following the death of my Polish grandparents so it was a very emotional trip and I couldnt have wished for a better hotel to be taking my mother to. I cannot rate it highly enough. I'd go back at the drop of a hat and have absolutely no complaints.
We recently spent two nights in this wonderfully renovated hotel; the young staff, though, is one of its best selling points. They speak excellent English, and were very friendly and accomodating to our every need. The double rooms are a bit small for the price, but the marbled bathrooms were absolutely over the top in elegance; heated towel bars, footed bath tub and separate rain shower, every amentity you could name, etc. The air-conditioned rooms have the latest technological features combined with fantastic art deco mahogany woodwork, beveled glass doors, and heavy, solid fixtures that gleam. There is an excellent fitness center and sauna located on the sixth floor. The only complaint we had (besides the snug room size), was the soft mattresses; we felt they should have been firmer and of a higher quality given the status of the hotel. That said, we would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Warsaw that doesn't mind splurging a bit for excellent service.
Great, quiet place for exlusive stay during a business trip, located at the city center, great kitchen too, provided by a Swiss Chef Kurt SCHELLER,
Great design and service
Small boutique hotel - all furniture and interiors are Art Deco - five star quality and as such the most unique interior of any hotel I have stayed anywhere. Extremely friendly and helpful staff that speak very good English. Outstanding breakfast included in rate (we paid 157 EUR total for 2 persons during a weekend). Great "rain" type shower plus bathtub. Ten minutes walk from major business areas, fifteen to Nowy Swiat restaurants or Folk Gospoda for cheap and great Polish food, and twenty to Old Town. Minor downsides: Executive twin beds are very narrow ("cot size" in American terms) and no iron/ironing board in room. We did not try the gourmet restaurant. Nifitest thing: great heavy art deco pens to take with you!
