Le Meridien Bristol Hotel – Warsaw

Posted on 26 July 2010

The Le Meridien Bristol is Warsaw’s treasure. Located in the most elegant street of the city, on the “King’s Walk”, the hotel graciously combines Old-World charm with contemporary luxury. The original interior design was signed Otto Wagner the Younger who gave Warsaw a splendid example of Viennese Art Nouveau at the turn of the 19th to 20th Century. The ceiling of the hall is already by itself a pure visual delight. Naively painted blue and red balloons with golden and black details seem to try to fly away from the hall. Bristol is exactly the hotel I need to feel good, because it has soul, something you can not find easily in other chain hotels. Just feeling the more than a century of history of the building puts you automatically in special state of mind. I stayed in room 205 which was a very big suite, with a gigantic bed, high ceiling, marbled bathroom, classic wallpaper and furniture. At Bristol Hotel, art is everywhere, even in the elevators and at the entrances. Different artists have developed 24hr sound-scapes to make you breathe while you are going up and down and in and out. When I was there I could listen to the creation of French musician and composer Henri Scars Struck that brought to my ears a blending of rich natural sounds with music elements from all over the world. Before going back to my room I’ve enjoyed dropping by Przekaski Zakaski, a bar restaurant that is open 24hrs where Warsawers like to get a bite after partying or actually after-party. How convenient was it for me use to have to cross to road to go to bed afterward!

When I woke up, I took my breakfast in the backyard of the hotel where I appreciated starting the day sitting in the shade and being able to choose yummy dishes among hundreds of international options. Afterward I went to visit the Old Town of Warsaw, that was only a short walk away. It was very impressive to see how such a big historic area has been rebuilt identically to its original look after World War 2. Opera House and the National Opera are as well a walking distance from the hotel. To have a coffee and a piece of cake during the day Bristol Cafe is the most charming choice ever. I fell in love with the cosiness of its black and white checked floor. In case I haven’t been complimentary enough about the Bristol, I can mention how kind and helpful was the stuff at any moment of my stay. The conclusion is quite obvious: Bristol is the greatest hotel in Warsaw!
