No matter what your plans for Warsaw are, one thing stays the same – you need a place to stay. Since World War II, the Polish capital has become a major business hub with a rich history in art and classical music. It’s often overlooked in favour of Gdańsk and Kraków, but there is plenty to explore in Warsaw – from the Unesco-listed Old Town to the arty Praga neighbourhood with quirky cafes and bars. Whether you are looking for a luxurious suite or a budget room, we’ve compiled a list of hotels to meet every traveller’s needs in Warsaw.
