Radisson Blu Warsaw

I spent 4 nights recently in the Radisson Blu Warsaw. This hotel was picked as I saw it offered a spa, gym, multiple restaurants and looked to be in a prime location. I spent 4 nights in a standard room with a very comfortable queen sized bed.

Room

My room was on the 6th floor, easily accessible by the 4 elevators in the main lobby in front of the check in desk.  (Quick note if you’re visiting in summer of 2018 the elevators are being replaced and as a result they have 2 operating at any given time and 2 out of service.) The room was fairly standard sized and consisted of a bathroom, queen sized bed, desk suitable for a laptop, closet/wardrobe, and a mini fridge. The room had plenty of lighting and a floor to ceiling opening window with a guard railing. 2 free water bottles were provided daily. One sparkling water with gas and the other still mineral water. The room had a 32 inch T.V with a decent selection of channels in English as well as other languages such as Russian, French, Spanish, and German. There was an ironing board and iron available in the room as well. The room was air conditioned. Another bonus in the room, plenty of outlets to plug in all the chargers I had with me.

Hotel Amenities

Spa, ATM, 2 restaurants, Bar, Conference space, onsite parking, airport shuttle, computer station.

The Radisson Blu Warsaw offered many amenities which attracted me. I had been on the go for a whole season at the time I stopped in Warsaw, Poland and picked the Radisson Blue for my stay. I was in need of a good massage and I decided to try out the hotels spa. The Radisson Blu Warsaw has a spa with an entrance on the ground floor. The Dream Spa & Gym Studio are a lovely facility. There was a good mix of workout equipment. The gym was more than satisfactory to get a full workout in. The massage services were better than I expected from a hotel and at the price listed. My 90 minute Swedish massage cost me roughly $70 USD. The massage room was lit by candles as well as a dimmed overhead light. The music was relaxing and the towels comfortable. The massage table was covered in towels. I peaked under the towels and noticed that the table was worn and the material cracking, this however was cosmetic only and didn’t impact the comfortability. 

Located in the main lobby near the front desk was an ATM machine.

There are two restaurnts on the ground floor of the hotel. One provides the breakfast in the morning as well as caters to events the rest of the day. The other restaurant is attached to the bar and serves lunch and dinner. The bar which has a wide selection of drinks also offers food until 01:00 in the morning which is great if you are out late exploring the city.  The food and drink were all reasonably priced and I was pleasantly surprised whenever I would get the bill after an evening meal.

The computer station is located directly in front of the front desk.

Location

The location of the Radisson Blu Warsaw is in the business district. It’s a short walk to the central train station. Near the central train station is also the Palace of Culture and Science. A short walk from the hotel is also the Warsaw Uprising Museum.  Chopin airport is also just a quick taxi or uber ride away from the Radisson Blu Warsaw. My trip to the airport with Uber cost me under $10 USD.

Final thoughts

The Radisson Blu Warsaw is a great place to stay when you visit Warsaw. Its central location, affordable meals and comfortable beds make it a worthy place to stay. I would stay again at the Radisson Blu Warsaw. The only issue I encountered was a room service order I placed never arrived but also didn’t show up in my billing.
