This famous building has certainly been through a lot. It's seen Warsaw's pre-war splendour, being the highest building in the city at the time, to near destruction during World War II. Rebuilt after the war, and functioning as a hotel until 2002, the building was eventually closed for the poor state it was in. Fast-forward to 2018 and Hotel Warszawa has been reborn, and my oh my, the transformation is stunning. The change is immediately apparent even before you enter as the exterior has been cleaned up to its original colour. Entering, the huge metal doors do well to impress, and from here on in, the interior is a supremely elegant blend of marble and wood, classic Art Deco and modernity. The service is of the highest of standards, and besides the accommodation, what's on offer to guests is designed to pleasantly raise eyebrows. Two hotel restaurants (Warszawska and Szóstka), a well-stocked bar, cigar room for aficionados, swimming pool with spa and gym facilities, a hairdresser, boutique shopping gallery, and, oddly enough, a florist! The rooms vary in price, but even the standard option is a cut above other similar offerings in the city - as if that wasn't enough, from inside the rooms, the aerial views of the city alone are enough to take your breathe away.
