I have been upgraded to Junior Suite by the very friendly and professional staff so instead of standard small hotel room I have received a huge room with a view of Palac Kultury and probably the noisiest intersection in Poland. Unfortunately the view from most of the rooms is obstructed by giant billboard hanging from the hotel's facade, covering most of the hotel windows. I found out that it is a very common view in Warsaw - you can see these giant billboards all around in the centre.
Location is perfect for these who come with a train to Warszawa Centralna - it is just several hundreds meters away but also there is a direct bus nr 175 from Okecie Airport (mere 30 minutes ride for PLN 3.60 ticket which can be bought from the ticketing machine or from the driver) to the hotel (the stop is called Centralna). The hotel is located side by side with more posh hotel Polonia. There is a money exchange office (called Kantor in Polish) just besides the hotel entrance and there are quite a few around.
Breakfast are excellent there is a lot of high quality food to choose from. There are lots of small eateries with traditional Polish zapiekankas, pierogi, grochówka, bigos so there is no need to visit all these Mc's or Fried whatevers. It is some 3 kms nice walk through Krakowskie przedmiescie to the old town passing by Warsaw University, Presidential Palace, Chopin's place, Bristol and Europejski hotels etc. Or you can walk the other way to beautiful Lazienki park whatever you prefer.
