Opened over 160 years ago in the 19th century, Raffles Europejski Warsaw is a hotel full of history, charm, and great facilities. With the Polish capital on its doorstep, the hotel is a perfect place to stay for a city break in Warsaw - a place teeming with culture and sights to see. Easy to take in the sights of the city, Raffles Europejski Warsaw is steps away from the National Opera House and the cobbled streets of the Old Town. Rooms are elegantly designed and offer luxurious furnishings to ensure a comfortable stay.
Raffles Europejski Warsaw has five restaurants and bars to choose from, with the intimate Humidor lounge offering single malts and brandies, the Lourse Warszawa offering tea and cakes, and Long Bar serving up cocktails. For a taste of Polish culture, meals should be taken in Europejski Grill – which combines the country’s staple dishes with European twists. Those in need of some pampering will find refuge in the well-appointed spa which has six soothing treatment rooms to choose from. Offering a variety of massages, body treatments and day packages – you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Whether you’re in Warsaw for a day or a week, you’ll be sure to see the Palace of Culture and Science. Built by Stalinist architects, it’s certainly quite hard to miss. Today, the building houses a cinema, four theatres, two museums, and even a university amongst other things, but despite all this change, the amazing panoramic views from the top have remained very much the same. The colourful Old Town is one of 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites in the city and its historic centre dates all the way back to the 13th century. Mostly obliterated in the Second World War, it’s been meticulously reconstructed to great effect. Those seeking a peaceful environment will find multiple parks across the city, but the most famous is the 17th-century Saxon Garden (Ogród Saski). The oldest public park in the city, it has colourful flowers, lemonade and ice cream stalls, and paths aplenty. Raffles Europejski Warsaw is found merely steps away from the National Opera House and very close to the aforementioned Old Town, making it easy to explore the Polish capital.
