Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Rialto
Wilcza 73, Warsaw, Mazovia, 00–670, Poland
Soft jazz plays in the lobby of this boutique hotel, which is completely in tune with its wonderfully consistent and tasteful art deco design, the work of architect Michał Borowski. Original period furniture was hunted down in antique fairs all over Europe, then lovingly restored by Polish artisans and supplemented with quality copies: a Charles Rennie Mackintosh lamp here, a Tamara de Lempicka painting there. While rooms are a bit on a small side because of the historical building's architectural quirks, their style is large enough that you won't mind. Each room is different, from cool, classy suite No. 65 (with slanted ceilings) to warm, wild African single No. 29.
- stylish, interesting decor
- quality service
- rooms are rather small
- a bit far to walk to the Old Town (30 minutes on foot)
