Hotels in Warsaw/Krakow

Can anyone recommend a few hotels? Has anyone stayed at Le Regina in Warsaw or the Radisson SAS in Krakow? Thanks! Planning a trip in April...

Hi
We were in Wawsaw a couple of years ago and stayed at the Europjeski Hotel. It was a great location in the center. I understand that it's been sold and possibly renovated. It was a pre WW 2 hotel, destroyed by the Nazis and rebuilt after.

I would say forget the Europejski unless it in fact has been renovated. In Warsaw we stayed at Bristol in summer of 2004 which is across the street from Europejski. It is now part of Le Meridien chain. Nice rooms and bathrooms, good service and a fabulous breakfast buffet. And the location can't be beat as you are right on the Royal Route, within easy walking distance to the Old Town. We got a good deal on too (I think around $130 Euro, breakfast included).

We stayed at the Radisson in Krakow last month and were delighted with the accommodations. The breakfast service was fantastic and the staff most helpful.
They even have a great gym to help you with the demanding Polish diet!

I can highly recommend the Hotel Maltanski in Krakow. It is a 10 minute walk from either the Rynek Glowny or Wawel Hill. The building was formerly the royal horse stables and is very well appointed with marble flooring and a curved staircase. The rooms are handsome and roomy, especially the bathrooms which are downright large and also appointed with marble and granite. They thoughtfully include robes in the room. The breakfast is attentively prepared with cappuccino to order. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Haven't stayed at either hotel, but here are my recommendations:

Krakow - The Copernicus: We love this hotel. It's located on the oldest street in Krakow, beneath the shadow of Wawel Castle. President & Mrs. Bush have stayed here, as well as other dignitaries. Great location, wonderful restaurant (don't miss the Baby Beet Root Pierogi), friendly staff. Rooms are extremely well done and very comfortable. Ask for a room with a front street view.

Warsaw - Marriott: This hotel enjoys a wonderful location a few steps from the train station. It's got everything one would want...rooftop bar/restaurant, sports bar/restaurant, other restaurants, etc., elegant public areas, competent & friendly staff.
Rooms are typical American style, with all amenities. It's just a terrific property.

That said...it's quite a walk to the altstadt, so you might want to take a taxi. However, the Marriott is a "home away from home" and I think you would greatly enjoy it.

Best location in Warsaw. The Bristol Meridian. Two blocks from the delightful old town and near many palaces. Restaurants are not the best in the hotel but there is a pastry, coffee and sandwich shop which is absolutely old world wonderful on the far side of the hotel.

We loved the Marriott in Warsaw-across the street from the train station, so easy to get a train to Krakow. Krakow is fabulous! Stayed at the Saski and found it to be very comfortable-large room with sitting room and convenient to the square and within walking distance of the hill. Across the street was a very good restaurant-windows opened with lace curtains and an excellent mushroom soup! Lovely amber jewelry in the shops and there was a small shop with very reasonably priced Christopher Radko ornaments.

We also stayed at the Bristol in Warsaw and loved it. Very "Old classy European", a treasure in that city due to WWII destruction.
Plan your hotels NOW as we had trouble booking hotels in Warsaw and Krakow for September while booking in January. Poland is popular!
