Advantages Clean, comfy and central
Disadvantages The odd niggle
The Radisson is situated in Ul. Grzybowska just off Al. Jana Pawla II, one of the main North - South throughways through central Warsaw. It is a three minute walk from the nearest tram stop and around five minutes from the nearest Metro station, Swietokrzyska, which itself is close to the central shopping area and that Stalinist pile, the Palace of Culture. From the airport it is a twenty to thirty minute ride by taxi, depending on traffic.The Radisson is a modern, medium sized building, ten stories high, with three basement levels. On the ground floor are the reception, a small gift shop, a large light and airy breakfast room, and a restaurant. The first floor consists mainly of conference rooms and the remainder of the upper floors consist of bedrooms. In the basement is the gymnasium and swimming pool and, below that, two levels of car parking.
The bedroom we were allocated was typical of those found in four/five star hotels in most major European cities, certainly in terms of size and layout. It had the usual facilities such as desk, wardrobe, TV and minibar. The bathroom was decently sized and had a proper bath complete with a fixed showerhead. What we liked about our room was the variety of fruit based shower gels and shampoos, replenished daily, and the small digital safe that was easy to operate thanks to the clear guidelines displayed in English. In addition, the room was thoroughly cleaned each morning, something I have found not to take for granted over the years. However, what we didn't like was the fact that though the bed was a super King size the hotel only supplied two single duvets under the bed cover.We did not use the restaurant, a soulless looking place that caters mainly for businessmen with expense accounts. The menu did not look particularly exciting or cheap compared to restaurants we visited in Warsaw, though that is not to say that if no other option existed we would not have dined there.
We did, however, take breakfast in the pleasant surroundings of the breakfast room. The range of food on offer varied considerably, from fruit, cereal, doughnuts, cold meats, cheese and bread to cooked items, including scrambled eggs, bacon, two types of sausage, fried potatoes and large beans cooked in a tomato-looking sauce. For drink a choice of tea, coffee, milk and fruit juice was on offer. You could not have faulted the manner the food was presented, certainly it left me dithering on the first morning as to what I should have.
