Modern-day Warsaw is full of swanky new pads, glamorous skyscrapers and state-of-the-art shopping malls. It’s a far cry from the bygone days when grey communist housing blocks dominated the city’s skyline. Instead of a conventional hotel experience during your stay, why not try the comfort and privacy of an apartment instead? Here’s our list of the best holiday pads in Poland’s capital.

1. Exclusive Aparthotel Warsaw

Apartment, Hotel, Luxury

The Exclusive Aparthotel group now offers luxury apartments in numerous countries around the world. These modern condos are a treat for the business-minded traveller or luxury explorer. Centrally located opposite Warsaw’s iconic Palace of Culture and Science, (and just round the corner from Świętokrzyska metro station) it’s a short walk along the Royal Route to the famous Krakowskie Przedmieście, a street famous for its shopping and culture. What’s more, you’ll feel like you’re sleeping in your second (boutique) home – not just another faceless corporate hotel.

2. Mondrian Luxury Apartments, Market Square

A stay in Warsaw doesn’t get more scenic or traditional than Mondrian’s Luxury Apartments in Market Square. These suites in a vintage Polish tenement building overlook the old town square. If the view alone isn’t enough to persuade you, the plush interiors with original artwork and comfortable furniture certainly will. Enjoy the restaurants, cafes and bars on the surrounding streets – or cook dinner at home; all the apartments make self-catering easy with their fully-equipped kitchens.

3. Warsaw Design Apartments

Designed by local architect Jems, Warsaw Design Apartments are perfect if you’re looking for somewhere central but unconventional to stay. You’ll find them in the popular Wola district, and they offer great value for money alongside comfort and quality. One of the biggest thrills for culture vultures, however, is the fact that most of the interiors feature graffiti by a well-known Warsaw-based graphic artist – so you can get to know the quirks of the city without leaving home.

4. GO Apartments Warsaw

You’ll feel right at home in this stylish, award-winning building. GO apartments are close to the central train station with connecting lines to Chopin and Modlin airports, and a metro station for easy access to the rest of Warsaw. These elegant apartments are laid out to ensure you’re comfortable and self-sufficient during your stay, with pleasing interiors and fresh linens. For history buffs, two museums are within a 15-minute walk away; the Warsaw Uprising Museum (Muzeum Powstania Warszawskiego) and Train Station Museum (Stacja Muzeum). All aboard!

5. SleepWell Apartments Ordynacka

SleepWell Apartments are on the verge of Warsaw’s Royal Route (a promenade that takes in three palaces) and you can enjoy a leisurely stroll along Nowy Świat and Krakowskie Przedmieście to the old town. The biggest selling point here, however, is the charm of the decor: palaces indeed, each room features exposed brick walls, four-poster beds and tiled floors, and comes with a TV, small fridge and Nespresso coffee machine. Outside you’ll find a plethora of bars, cafes and restaurants with enticing menus from all over the world.

6. Varsovia Apartmenty Kasprzaka 31

All the Varsovia apartments are stylish and modern, with balcony views overlooking Warsaw’s green spaces. They’re a little outside the city centre, but there’s an underground garage for your car, or numerous bus and tram connections. Last minute bookers are especially welcome – with more than 300 apartments available for rental, you’re sure to find something to meet your exacting standards.

7. No.4 Residence

For the discerning traveller, apartments don’t get more inviting than the No.4 Residence. Ideal for social night owls owing to its location on Nowogrodzka – a street lined with craft beer hangouts, continental wine bars and sumptuous international restaurants – the modernist but cosy interiors take inspiration from the art of the Polish avant-garde, focusing on the works of Henryk Stażewski. You’ll love the balance of geometric design and bold colour – and there are 22 beautiful apartments to choose from.

8. Ego Apartments

A stay at Ego Apartments on delightfully-named Ulica Piwna (Beer Street) gives you the thrill of sleeping in Warsaw’s old town. In addition to exploring the narrow streets – (as its name would suggest) there’s a wide selection of bars, cafes and restaurants to tickle your tastebuds. Quality beds and soft towels are guaranteed, as is a welcome pack for every guest. The staff here are happy to help organise transport to and from all nearby airports, train and bus stations in the city.

Suitable for both long and short stays, the apartments have a contemporary home-away-from-home vibe, with elegant but modern furnishings. Their place on Chmielna Street gives you endless choices in terms of eating and drinking, and the Palace of Culture and Science is a five minute walk away, as is the splendid Krakowskie Przedmieście thoroughfare leading to the old town.

10. Residence 1898

Solo travellers in particular rate it as a good place for independent exploration of the city – some suites include a roll top bath and writing desk for added indulgence. Halfway between the towering Palace of Culture and Science and the leafy Łazienki Park, you can choose to explore indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather.
