Editor's review

The Le Méridien Bristol, which is named after an eccentric English Marquis who travelled Europe in formidable style, is Warsaw's premier hotel. The hotel originally opened its doors in 1901 and its grand reopening in 1993 set the icing on the cake of one of the city's most splendid restorations. At the Bristol you can expect modern luxury combined with old world elegance and a location that is second to none. The rooms are light and charming, many with balconies, and there is a large variety of suites on hand. These range right up to the stately and very swish Paderewski (named after the pre-war prime minister and pianist who founded the hotel), which is certainly fit for a king.

I attended a reception at the hotel. It is one of the best locations you could be in, a short walk from the old town and Nowy Swiat in the other direction.

The service is top class.

This place is a legend. Currently probably the oldest operating hotel in Warsaw. Very charming and it doesn't disappoint. Beautiful interiors and very professional staff.

You can get some good deals if you book well in advance. The hotel itself is fantastic - real grandeur, and a great location.

Stayed in executive double room with a breath-taking view of Warsaw. Very pleased with the standard of the hotel, but breakfast a bit pricey!

Dust and 'fag ends' accumulating on the girders supporting the glass paneled elevator show that the place needs vacuuming, It also would benefir from a fresh a lick of paint (since it was re-opened by margaret Thatcher all those yearsago) and needs its paintwork and room decor freshening up. I wouldf rate it a 4 star hotel, no higher than that. The staff were wonderful but let down bt shabby maintenance that would appear to be a hangover from the Stalinist era

Elegant! Every Polish person you know will be impressed that you stayed at the Bristol :-)

This is the definition of classy. The rooms are very elegant and the meals in the restaurant (especially breakfast and Sunday brunch) are to die for! Recommended if you want a real luxury experience and are sick of staying in chain hotels.

Very glamorous building and wonderful entrance, bars and lounging areas. Location cannot be better for a tourist. All the new hotels seem to be in the rather ugly business part of the city hence we decided on a stay at the Bristol.

Didn't actually stay here but on the advice of a friend did the legendary Sunday brunch. Could have happily booked a room and conked out after that! Absolutely fantastic!

Decided on one night in a luxury hotel during my recent tour of Poland and the Bristol was my choice. Loved the proximity to the Old Town and also the feeling of it being a well established hotel with a long history in Warsaw but couldn't help thinking that this grand hotel had seen better days.

Really amazing hotel, and the perfect base for exploring Warsaw. I would highly recommend a stay at the Bristol. Their Sunday brunch at the restaurant downstairs is to die for!

Situated on King's Walk (Trakcie Królewskim), Warsaw's most fashionable street, and overlooking the Presidential Palace, Le Royal Meridien Bristol is only a few minutes' walk from the historic Old Town, the Royal Castle, the National Theatre and Warsaw's business district. The hotel offers a unique experience and personalised service, higly recomended

Splendid, really. Quality service and some style. Warsaw is a pretty hectic city, and the Bristol Hotel provided a great break from the hubbub. The staff were courteous and the room we had was generous in size and nicely appointed. Not the cheapest hotel in Warsaw, but probably one of the best.
