My brief stay at the Polonia was an unexpected treat. This is a grand old hotel of historic significance. My Polish friends speak of a sentimental attachment to the place because it survived the horrors of World War II. But the hotel is not a relic -- the Polonia has been thoroughly renovated and offers rooms, restaurants, and lobby that meet a high international standard.
Room: I was very happy with my large, bright, beautifully furnished room. Huge window facing "Stalin's Finger." Large bathroom with tub, shower, comfortable robe, Extremely comfortable bed, well equipped desk, large TV.
Hint: At check in, I was offered a choice of quiet or noisy. I recommend taking a room with an external view and extra light, at the expense of a a bit of noise.
Services: Check in and check out was efficient, staff was warm and helpful, service in the restaurant was exceptional, and the variety and quality of items at the breakfast buffet was great. Buffet was expensive but well worth it.
Location: A short three block walk from the central railway station, directly on the central square. Extremely convenient.
Hint: Please be wary of thieves, pickpockets and rogue cab drivers in the railway station area. Keep passport and credit cards in a secure inner pocket or inside pouch.
Hint: No need to order the car service to get to the airport on departure. Just grab a taxi for less money and similar service.
One minus: Internet access was badly overpriced.... and we cannot live without it.
One plus: For reasons that I cannot understand, my Sunday night rate at this gem of a hotel was only 70 Euro. One of the best values I have enjoyed in years!
