We arrived into Warsaw very late, and chose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express Warsaw Airport. This hotel was chosen for a couple of reasons. There was a great promotion going on at the time, as I usually do not stay at IHG properties. The other reason was that rates were a ridiculously low $30 per night.
The lobby is somewhat small, and check-in took a while as the front desk agent couldn’t find the reservation at first.
Upon entering the room, the first thing I noticed was that the room was fairly small and cramped.
The bathroom was located to the right, and was very compact to say the least. There was a small round sink about the size of a manhole cover, with decent counter space considering the size of the bathroom.
There was a fully enclosed shower with shampoo/conditioner and shower gel dispensed from bottles.
Next to the bathroom, was a small nook with two complimentary bottles of water and a kettle.
There were two double beds, which weren’t very comfortable but at least we had a place to lay our heads.
There was a chair in the corner, however it looked lonely without another chair or small table.
The desk area was somewhat small, but at least it was free of clutter.
The Holiday Inn Express offers complimentary breakfast for all guests. That being the case, I wasn’t expecting much but was somewhat pleasantly surprised at the offerings. It isn’t gourmet, but there is almost something for everyone to get their day going.
There were breads, pasties, fresh fruit, canned fruit cocktail, juice, hard boiled eggs, jams, jellies, yogurt, cereal, coldcuts, cheese and salad.
The hotel is located fairly close to the airport, and is about 5-10 minutes away. If I had a very late flight, or a very early morning flight, I would not hesitate to stay here again especially given the price point.
