“Uncommon and for all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

It is a place with high ideals and it realizes them well. It might seem that it is not a hard job to create such place but one needs to have this consciousness that this is a missed and needed place plus have a good taste (though i hate this word but it simplifies it) and... do the effort! It is a salon like from the pre war time but fresh, and with very good big piano. I like the original art nouveau chandelier from 1910s in there.. So it is a cameral very approachable, elegant place where you learn about listening to live music and about classical music. So it is both history and the experience of sound.
Plus this is the only such place in Warsaw and the only not institutional-like concerts of Chopin in the city of Warsaw.
I really recommend it. In a way it is more interesting than filharmony or opera.

Dear Monika,
it was our dream to have a salon with original art nouveau forniture, and insturments. And I have to admite that our dream was fulfiled. Set of furniture for the salon: sofa, coffee table, ceiling lamp and dresser are from the same period as the house, which are today 104 years..
Only grand Steinway piano is mor conterporary.
Thank you again for your comments

“Great way to relax after a long day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

The salon wonderfully compliments the look, feel and overall atmosphere of the hotel. It's a great way to relax after the long day and meet new people. The music brings you right back to the salons of pre-war Warsaw. It's something magical. It's something to see.

Dear Elena,
That's great that we have finally in Warsaw guests who are looking for Chopin and his music. Our city which suffered so much in the war is looking for new identity. I hope music and the charm of prewar Warsaw salon is the best way to focus on art and professionalism of our musicians.
Welcome again,
Best regards

“Your portal to Chopin's 19th century”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Since my first visit to Boutique B & B in 2006, I have watched this unique and wonderful place grow, change, and become more charming every year. But, with the addition of the Chopin Salon, owner/innovator Jarek Cholodecki has created a stunning nightly concert series, which you will not find anywhere else in Warsaw. The concept sounds simple enough - connect highly gifted and acclaimed musicians with audiences who are hungry to experience beautiful music in an intimate atmosphere. But, making that happen in our fast paced, loud, busy, over-stimulated, multitasking society is not quite so easy. You need to know that the Chopin Salon has done it, delivering something quite rare. This combination of warm hospitality, a glass of wine and something sweet, a beautiful Steinway piano, and outstanding performers who are just feet away from their audience creates a magical atmosphere which allows people to connect to their hearts through music (it is also exactly the type of intimate salon atmosphere that Chopin so preferred for his own concerts). I have been fortunate enough to be both an audience member, and a performer at these Chopin Salon concerts, and can guarantee that this multi-sensory experience will transport you back to the 19th century. If you do one thing for yourself this year, create a lifetime memory by experiencing the Chopin Salon in Warsaw.
