Hotel Bristol, Warsaw

Nicky Trup checks into the Warsaw landmark next door to the presidential palace

 

Hotel Bristol is a curtain-twitcher’s paradise. Right next door to the Polish presidential palace, it has such close-up views it could well be considered a national security risk.

Now part of Starwood’s Luxury Collection, the hotel is a Warsaw landmark, having hosted the likes of Pablo Picasso, Marlene Dietrich, Sophia Loren, Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese over the years. The interiors are opulent, but classic, the public spaces decked out with art deco-style chandeliers, marble walls and velvet couches. The basement, meanwhile, houses a modern gym, pool and wellness area.

My spacious Executive Room was awash with cream and gold, with a super-soft bed and armchair. It had views over the palace courtyard (no sign of the president, sadly), and Krakowskie Przedmiescie, the bustling street that leads into Warsaw’s beautifully reconstructed Old Town. The bathroom was equally roomy, featuring elegant fittings and good quality cosmetics.

I didn’t get to try dinner at the hotel’s well-reviewed Marconi restaurant, but breakfast was a decent continental buffet, with a choice of breakfast favorites available from the a la carte menu, and service came with a smile.
