How to get to the hotel
From the airport by bus (Warsaw Chopin Airport)
We have used this transport personally and in our opinion it is the most convenient, you board directly in front of the arrivals hall and get off directly at the hotel without changing. At the airport, follow the lines on the ground according to the color you want to take from the airport. You can choose from bus, train, taxi or Uber. Bus - purple line. Take bus no. 175. You can buy tickets directly at the airport or at the bus stop in the machines, you can also pay by card. The time ticket is either as short as 20 minutes, or as long as 75 minutes. It takes 24 minutes by bus to the hotel. A paper ticket comes out of the machine, which you then mark on the bus. Get off at the Plac Zawiszy stop, it is directly opposite the hotel, just cross the intersection. It's at the huge roundabout where you get a view of the new city full of glowing skyscrapers (if you arrive after dark).
From the airport by train
Take the S2 train and get off at the Warszawa Ochota stop. Then it is about 260 m on foot.
From the airport by car
The hotel is 7.4 km from the airport by car. The fastest route is via DW634. You need to expect traffic jams.
From the central station
You can either walk, it's about 1200 m along the main street Aleje Jerozolimskie, or take bus no. 128 to the stop Plac Zawiszy (stop no. 05), 120 m from the hotel.
The metro is 800 m from the hotel, get off at the Rondo Daszyńskiego stop. Go down Towarowa Street, Road No. DW634, the hotel will be on your right.
There is a bus stop closest to the hotel and a tram stop right next to it, so we used this public transport to move around Warsaw.
Depending on availability, you can choose a room with a view of the skyscrapers (but it is on the busy side, there is a lot of traffic in front of the hotel) or with a view of the garden and peace. The elevator works with a card from the room and there are plenty of them, we never waited long. We had a Standard room. In addition to an extremely comfortable bed and great soft sheets, you will also find an armchair, a coffee table, a work desk with a chair, a large TV, a fridge where there were two welcome waters (and we got them again the next day), a kettle with a selection of teas and coffees, safe, shoe sponge, shoe spoon, ironing board and iron, slippers. In the bathroom there is a hairdryer, soap, shower, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, vanity kit, napkins, magnifying mirror and if you want to warm your feet, you turn on a warm fan under the sink, I've never seen that before :) I also appreciate the coat hangers outside the closet. The room has a carpet and instead of a regular window there is a large French window that can be opened. Totally blackout curtains. The room was big enough for a comfortable stay in Warsaw, including a big enough wardrobe. And to the side of the garden it was really quiet, the window sealed well.

Wifi without password, just accept the conditions.
Opposite the reception there is a computer with a printer where you can print what you need if necessary.
The breakfasts are very above standard. Here you will find a hot buffet (scrambled eggs, sausages, warm vegetables, hard-boiled eggs, optional choice of eggs or omelets), a cold buffet (salami, hams, cheeses, fresh fruits and vegetables), salads, fish, muesli, yogurts, jams, various milks, including lactose-free or plant-based milks, a large selection of pastries, including gluten-free and sweet, freshes, smoothies, espresso and other types of coffee from the machine. Everyone really chooses.
We also tried the Trylogia a la carte restaurant, where we had dinner. Fish and chips with truffle mayo and Angus burger, both very tasty. The soccer world championship was taking place and it was possible to watch it on the big TV here while eating. All the guys were excitedly sitting as close as possible :)
I also want to thank the management that in the afternoon after our arrival from the city, there were sweet treats for our coffee with a handwritten message waiting for us in our room, we were very pleased. And they were excellent!
Surroundings of the hotel
There are many modern skyscrapers in the vicinity of the hotel. Either banks, international companies or hotels are located in them. After dark, when everyone lights up, it's like in science fiction. You will also find grocery stores, drugstores, restaurants, towards the Central Station there is an Italian one, and a little further on a Georgian one, plus some fast food, that's just what we saw along the way. Definitely do not visit the Hard Rock Cafe near the Golden Terrace shopping mall. I haven't seen such horrible service in a long time, you'd have to throw a grenade at them at the bar or light firecrackers at the table for them to even notice you, the food isn't great either, don't waste your time here. Originally, we wanted to eat somewhere in the shopping mall, there was a lot of fast food, but on Advent weekends it was so crowded that we couldn't find a single free stall, people were even sitting on the ground.
There is a bus and tram stop right next to the hotel. Opposite the hotel is the huge train station Warszawa Glówna, we were a little confused that there are two stations close to each other, the second one is Warszawa Centralna (about 1200 m from the hotel). The main interchange, from which you can get almost anywhere in Warsaw - the Centrum stop - is two tram stops from the hotel. Due to the heavy traffic, if possible, go there by tram rather than by bus, they don't get stuck :) Tickets can be bought from a machine at almost every stop, you can also pay by card (one with a machine is right next to the hotel, almost in front of the entrance). If you are going to see Warsaw, buy a full day pass, for PLN 15 it is definitely worth it. Just mark it in the first means of transport used and it's on its way, then you don't have to worry anymore.
You can find out what it is possible to see in Warsaw in a weekend in the article I am currently working on, I will publish it soon.
I recommend the Radisson Blu Sobieski Warszawa 4* hotel because it is in a great location (there is a direct bus from the airport, and there is a bus and tram stop right next to the hotel, to the Palace of Culture, which here, in a modern district, is considered the center, it's 2 stops or you can walk along the main road). There are many shops and restaurants in the vicinity. The rooms are spacious, the breakfast is above standard and the staff at the reception was always very nice and helpful. In addition, the hotel is at a great price! Compared to those right next to the Palace of Culture.
