Hotel Harenda
Ranked #73 of 129 Hotels in Warsaw
Reviewed 2 January 2013

The best thing about this hotel is its location, it's walking distance from the historic center of Warsaw. Otherwise, as mentioned in other reviews here, the rooms could look better and are quite small. It's a decent option for those on a budget, students, etc. There is breakfast but at an additional cost of 30 zloty.

Pro's: The location was excellent for walking to the old town and Novy Swiat street. Location for the price is the best thing going for this hotel. On site secure car parking was another major plus. Breakfast was decent.
Con's: No elevator, poor worn out towels, rooms that had not been renovated were extremely dingy as were the hallways throughout the hotel.
I was in a single room on the first floor which was very dingy and had not been renovated in decades. My parents were in a double room on the second floor which had been renovated and was significantly better.

Room Tip: I was in a single room on the first floor which was very dingy and had not been renovated in decades...

The location is excellent for the university and the Academy of Science. It's on the street which forms the 'Royal Walk' down to the historic old town so you have most of the main tourist attractions within a few minutes walk. The area is clean and the atmosphere is generally pleasant - there are plenty of people about even at night and it feels safe.
One of the best things about the hotel is its staff. They are friendly and hospitable people who are always willing to help. They speak English well and were happy to make phone calls in Polish to taxis etc.
My room was basic and a bit tired but it was kept very clean which is the main thing. The hotel is located over some bars and cafes and they are noisy at night. On Friday and Saturday night there were people shouting and laughing outside until the early hours. With the window shut it wasn't too bad but there is no a/c so I preferred to leave it open and use ear plugs.
On the weekend you get one night free which makes it very good value. The breakfast is a good buffet with rolls, cheese, meats, salad, fresh juice and I thought it was reasonable value at approx £5. It is the same every day so for a change there are plenty of cafes in the area at a similar price.

Very good location. Near the stadium. It was also extremely close to main street, shopping, restaurants and old town. Rooms and halls need a little attention. Nice big room with comfortable beds. Breakfast wasn't included in the price, no elevator and no air conditioner. Cost of 59 Euro per night with 6 Euro for breakfast - not worth it. Low WiFi signal in rooms. Parking could be bit cheaper

We stayed at the hotel Harenda because we had tickets to the EURO 2012 semi-finals in Warsaw- just a mile walk to National Stadium. To our delight, it was also extremely close to the center of town. We didn't need transportation to old town- shops and restaurants were right around the corner. That being said, here are things you should know going in. No elevator or air conditioning, so, you walk up to your room. It was hot, so some days, I did not look forward to that. We did have two big windows for a great cross breeze. When you approach the hotel, it looks very charming even when you enter the lobby. The lobby stairs and the carpet in your room are in need of replacement or cleaning. Bathroom is tiny- I am not one of those fussy bathroom people so rest assured that it was tiny- approximately 3'x6. I have to say though, we did adapt. The bathroom did also have an odor if you left the door closed. Outside the hotel is a patio bar and of course, the day of the game, many people were at it - it can get loud. We slept ok, as we were simply tired enough from our day of travel. if I had to sum it up, it was adequate- served our purpose, but, if given different hotel choice in the same area, we would not have chosen it. We were limited in our choices due to the games.

I stayed the last night in this "hotel". The room was a mess, the carpet dirty, the shower just ugly. I tried not to touch anything. The shower was broken, you had to hold the shower head yourself all the time. The walls are dirty and have not seen any paint for decades. I skipped breakfast, I guess that was a smart move to prevent food poisoning. Just stay away from this place, and if you have to stay there, never ever take a look under the matresses.

We stayed in Hotel Harenda for two nights on a business trip. Its location is good, very close to the University and in walking distance to the old town. The rooms were quite small but clean and comfortable. There is free wifi in the rooms (ask for the password at the reception) and bottled water (although the tap water is good too). The breakfast was good, especially the pâté was excellent. The disadvantage is the lack of elevator if you have heavy luggage or problems with climbing the stairs. The staff is friendly and helpful. We booked the hotel via its website but haven’t got confirmation, only after requesting it by e-mail (but finally everything went smoothly).
