Bathroom screams for renovation
The building where the hotel is located constitutes one of the most characteristic buildings in downtown Warsaw. I admired that building when I was a child as it looked very modern and magnificent (because of its height). Somehow, I’ve never had an occasion to visit it inside over the past 25 years until now. These days, the building itself doesn’t seem to be so special due to the rapidly changing Warsaw city center. The hotel has a 5-star category what you can feel right after you get into the main lobby. It is a huge space, finished with expensive materials, suitable for welcoming the most demanding guests. Someone might say it’s a bit old-fashioned and used, but I liked simple, yet elegant interior. I was able to smell a pleasant scent in the air which was a nice addition to the luxurious feeling. The time required for getting a room was significant. I was forced to wait almost 40 minutes due to lack of available rooms. Of note, my arrival wasn’t early at all. To be fair, I asked for a beautiful view, and my request was fulfilled, so it was worth waiting. The lifts move fast, and there’s no need to wait for them. My room was spotless and spacious with an incredibly comfortable bed. W-Fi was fast, but I was confused whether I had to pay for it though. The service didn’t explain it to me earlier. The information provided by the hotel is very unclear. Let’s talk about the room décor. No doubt, it is the weakest side of the hotel. I had a feeling that the furniture was old and used (probably it hasn’t been changed since the opening day). The worst part was the bathroom, a 3-star bathroom. Small, uncomfortable with some dirty spots that appeared over time and now it’s not possible to clean them. The bathroom was really disappointing, it literally screams for renovation. Breakfasts were exquisite with lots of choices and fresh ingredients, similar to those I ate at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
