This is definitely a hotel that offers only the absolutely necessary: bed, quite clean room, hot water and...internet! but these are quite good. I was skeptic especially about internet and transportation but came out fine.
- The building looks quite ugly from the outside and the hallways inside resemble those of hospitals
- The rooms are old but rather comfortable and spacious.
- There was no fridge in my room
- Internet was always available and fast
- Transportation is easy with buses 501, 519 from central train station. They run often and the price is 2.60PLN, since the trip takes less than 20'.
- Had no problems with the staff
- Didn't try breakfast
- The bed is comfortable
- TV had only Polish channels, but in other rooms I know there are also couple of French & German ones.
- Bathroom was adequate, no problems with hot water
- Room temperature was fine
- There is no noise from the outside, as the nearby avenue is far enough. Noise from neighboring rooms was bearable.
For the price of 23€/night for the single room, I think it was a really good choice.
One of three Stalin-style buildings in a Moktow district hotel complex. There is nothing pretty about this property but in the end its mostly a good place to be for 2-3 nights.
The good: Very convenient location; 5 stops from City Center, and only a 25 minute bus ride to the airport. Great restaurant in the hotel, priced very well for a property in Warsaw, beer garden in the parking lot!
The bad: Post-war era architecture provides little ventilation. Rooms can get muggy in the summer. Locks on the doors are rusty and take some time to maneuver.
There were 12 large coaches and 7 small ones in the car park of the hotel when I stayed there again this month. The school parties made rather a lot of noise this time. Wifi is supposoed to be available in the rooms but the whole time I was there the server was down;.The food is adequate and the dining rooms have ben improved considerably from my first stay four years ago. when they were a number of small rooms but now the intervening walls have been knocked down to provide a larger space. The evening meal was fine and the buffet breakast was good despite the large number of people wanting breakfast at one time.. There are shops a short walk away but the hotel is quite some distance from the city centre. The next door hotel which was the same chain as the Aramis 4 years ago has now been bought by Best Western and seems to be undergoing a renovation. Bedrooms were adequate.
This hotel is one of 3 hotels of different standards. It's located a bit away from the city center, which doesn't mean it's difficult to get there (about 20 minutes by bus). Bus stops are conveniently located a few minutes walk from the hotel. For example, from the Central Station, take bus 519 (towards Powsin Park Kultury), 501 (Stegny) or 130 (Wilanow) and get off at Mangalia stop. Going towards the city, you can take either of these buses and get off at Marszałkowska / Centrum (one stop before Central Station) and you're near all the major attractions Warsaw has to offer.
The staff at the reception desk was polite and helpful.
The room itself (double) was fairly big and very clean. The bathroom had enough space and it was also clean. My room had an open shower (no separation). It was quiet in the hotel, which I greatly appreciated.
Iron was available upon request at the reception desk (I like that because I prefer to iron my own clothes).
The major downside for me was that wireless internet did not work in my room. The only place it should work without any problems was the lobby (which I didn't try).
There was no room service that cleaned my room. I stayed there only 2 nights, and it didn't bother me at all.
Breakfast was OK. There were a few choices. Part of the dining room has a TV, so it's nice to listen to the news in the morning.
I think Aramis hotel is a good place to stay for a short visit in Warsaw.
This hotel was a big surprise as I was expecting a lot worse due to the one * rating of the facility. I could not be more wrong. It was exactly what my hsband and I needed for our short stay in the capital of Poland. Polite staff, great facilities and fab breakfast for the price (dinners are also pretty good actually!). It is next door to a bus stop which takes you directly to all the places of interest (bus number 116). I simply cannot fault it and having stayed in a wide range of hotels before I can say this is a perfect spot for those who like a convenient and basic but clean room to stay a couple of nights. If you are a person who does not venture out much and wants luxury and cisiness of the room more than anything-look elsewhere!
