“Gromada Dom Chłopa: perfectly located and unusual”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2012

Gromada Dom Chłopa is a good choice for those visitors who look not only for a centrally located hotel at reasonable price, but additionally prefer something different than regular western hotel chains. Gromada is the name of the third largest hotel chain in Poland. It has been run by the Polish tourist cooperative for 75 years now. The building itself is worth a closer look. It was constructed in the late 50s in modernist style (by famous architects Bohdan Pniewski and Małgorzata Handzelewicz-Wacławek. For years it was one of the few modern hotels in Warsaw. 10 years ago an new wing was added which overweighs the older part. When I stay here I choose rooms in the old part although their standard is lower than in the new wing. I simply choose for the atmosphere.
The hotel is located in a prestigious Powstańców Warszawy Square, near the National Bank of Poland and public TV. It difficult to get there these days, especially from the eastern direction because of the construction works of the Warsaw underground.
It is a 3-star hotel, although some basic rooms lack this standard. They simply need new furniture. Bathrooms are simple but clean. Hotel staff is helpful. WiFi is free and available in all rooms, but the signal can be poor in some parts of the hotel. If you need internet very much, check it right after you enter the room. If you are not satsfied change the room. Gromada hotels run good restaurans with traditional Polish dishes. The one in Gromada Dom Chłopa is open until 11 pm. You can try nice beer from a small private brewery in Konstancin near Warsaw. The bar closes at 2 am (only popular beer brands).To conclude: different, reasonable in nice surrounding.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Powstańców Warszawy Square, It can be a little noisier, but the view is nice.

I am hoping to write a review of this hotel's restaurant under a separate heading. It deserves special mention for the excellence of its traditional Polish cooking, better, and better value, than many of the well-known chains and cafes in the city. The hotel itself is a mixed bag. Built in the 1930s, it's a big place with memories of former glories pervading the reception hall, ghosts of the Comintern years when the Dom Chlopa no doubt hosted conferences of middle ranking Party bureaucrats. It boasts a central hydraulic lift that is itself a museum piece, a Futuristic tube of glass and steel, glacially slow and reeking of motor lubricant. The rooms are adequately comfortable, the breakfasts OK, reception staff friendly, the location central and convenient. But I'm determined to do what little I can to expose the wi-fi ripoff that plagues so many mid-range and budget hotels. As long as hotels install a wi-fi router of some kind they think they can advertise internet access in every room. But the temptation to cut corners by using a cheaper, weak, possibly domestic style router must be huge. In so many places the wi-fi signal in rooms is simply not strong enough to carry a busy hotel's-worth of internet traffic. It was farcically bad at the Gromada and the hotel's IT operative openly admitted as much to me. So the promise of wi-fi in every room was frustratingly meaningless because it hardly ever worked, despite complaint after complaint. It is just an empty promise to travellers working abroad who these days rely on the internet for business and, even more, that crucial contact with home. I hope other Tripadvisor reviewers highlight this annoyance. Because, failure to provide a service promised in the price, amounts to ripping off the guests.

Excellent location, just in the hart of the city. Many shops, restaurants and cafe around
We walked and saw all the main attraction by foot.NO need of public transport. We are over 60 and we do not have any problem to arrive everywere by walking.
The staff is ok except one lady clerk who did not have the patuence to explain how to arrive to the fountain garden, claiming that she do not know that, even when i show her on the map supplied by the hotel. This site was recommende at the check in time by an other clerk.
The elevator (only one) is a bit slow, but i had to wait max. 1 min when needed.
Breackfast is abundent and the buffet is good.
They allowed me to remain in the room two addditional hours, after the final check out rule, without any charge. furthermore they have a garded locker room if yo have a late flight like us.
very good value for money, but it is a budget hotel.
if you want luxury hotels, you can pay double and get the Intercontinental or Novotel in the same area.

Room Tip: take a room facind the bier garden - not recommended in the summer time

Gromada is an aging (very much so) hotel in Warsaw city centre. With prices going up all the time for centrally located hotels in Warsaw, it's a good budget choice but you do get what you pay for.

Check in was slow. Then up to the room with the world's slowest lift. Room was large-ish (also unusual for budget hotels in Warsaw), fairly clean but all furniture very dated. Reasonable amount of storage space. Bathroom was large enough, with a fair sized bath. No a/c in the room which gets quite hot in the summer. Largish desk and a couple of chairs.

Wifi was terrible - slow and kept cutting out. Do NOT stay here if you really need wifi, unless you want to spend a lot of time in McDonalds or coffee shops. Breakfast was OK, nothing special, quite crowded every day.

Location is great - steps away from the center and Nowy Swiat.

Good location for a business (walking disatnce), parking available, helpfull staff, bar opened. But yeah, rooms could be better and modern I think. But value for the price is almost equal, it is a capital city.

I was unexpectedly in Warsaw for a week starting August 29 2012 and from the airport for a few nights at the Radisson and was surprised by the very good price(under $70) for a last minute reservation. I did not know my duration because it was a trip interruption getting a visa to another country corrected by their embassy in Warsaw. After very pleasant 2 days I found that I would be there a week so decided to book a different hotel close into the Old Town so I could be a tourist and walk, outdoor dine and visit museums within walking distance. I found the Gromada Dom Chlopa for about the same price but well situated near where I wanted to explore.
When I say it I knew it looked familiar with layout and construction as being like dozens of old Soviet style hotels in Eastern Europe. My room did nothing to change that impression, even the smell of the old carpets and hard center sagging single beds reminded me of USSR 1975.
It did have some things going for it, a nice central courtyard beer garden, a good location near cafes, music bars, Old Town etc. The rooms in the main section were anything but nice, in furnishings, bedding, common areas etc.
It is not all bad, the cafe/bar had low cost beer, there is an attached restaurant which I did not try and it had wireless internet which required getting a new password at the front desk ever 24 hours.
Although there were no bad experiences, the lobby staff was pleasant enough but not what would be called "friendly" it only amplified what a super deal I got from the prior hotel. Compared to my prior trips to Poland, which is a friendly easy-going place this hotel was the only let down on the trip. It does not take much to please me but I would never bring a partner or family member. My main goal was to be out during the day until late at night walking or socializing so having a less comfortable room with bad beds and linen did not cause problems.
My suggestion would be to look for something a little better and stay in close to Old Town if you are a tourist or want the night life of that area. If the weather is hot, forget it, no air conditioning although windows did open onto the courtyard. There are some nice hotels in the area and many nice apartment/BB and residency houses that are very attractive and clean. Midweek rates in the higher end hotels are very reasonable in Warsaw, $100 gets a very nice place from M-F

Room Tip: Rooms with windows on the courtyard are quiet when the beer garden is not open. There might be a mor...

I was here for five days on business in July 2012. It's centrally situated, but the massive roadworks for the new tram system caused a few detours and general inconvenience. The staff were friendly and efficient and there was always someone around who spoke English. On my laptop, the free wifi didn't seem to work with Google Chrome, only Firefox, but otherwise fine - you have to ask for the new code each evening at reception. The room was smallish, but clean and with all mod cons except air conditioning (a bit of a problem in mid-July but at least I could open the window in two different ways!). Breakfast is in a large windowless room in the basement. An excellent comprehensive breakfast buffet, including hot food, but the post-communist Poles haven't really cracked how to make coffee (I preferred the old kava naturalna!). As with any mid-range eastern European hotel, it represents excellent value for money for Western travellers.

Room Tip: You could try and ask if there are any rooms with air-conditioning.
