Sheraton Warsaw Hotel Review is part of the #NoCollusion, No Albania for TPOL where I break my 100 country count mark. See the World Map for where I’ve been.
Getting There: I took a taxi from the airport for $10.80, but the better option is Uber for $7 which I took to and from the airport when I went to recover my bags after my Tel Aviv ordeal (see “You Leave Only with Passport!” Detained in Tel Aviv Again).
I arrived at the Sheraton at 2AM, ready to sleep after my aforementioned ordeal. I was told that I had been upgraded to a suite. Spent, I would’ve settled for a smoking room in the basement so long as it came with a ‘do not disturb’ sign.
As is TPOL’s policy, I did not do any research on Warsaw
, let alone the Sheraton Warsaw before my arrival. I assumed with no reason to do so that the Sheraton would be dated and that the rooms would be basic. This was not the case.
The bathroom was also modern. It didn’t have the typical Sheraton soap. It did have a scale, something that should be prohibited in hotels.
The breakfast buffet was impressive. There was a Polish section featuring cured meats and potato salad. There was also a healthy corner in case you stepped on the bathroom scale. Besides visiting the omelette station, I also stopped by the dessert section to fatten myself up just a bit more.
I experienced the great hotel offerings before stepping outside. One of the best features of the hotel is its location. It is walking distance to the Old Town, which is great for exploring but far enough away from the tourist traps (see Old Town Warsaw: Dumplings & Drinks
After being mentally beaten but not broken in Tel Aviv, I was happy to put myself back together again at the Sheraton Warsaw.
