Fodor's Expert Review Novotel Warsaw Centrum

Nowogrodzka 24/26, Warsaw, Mazovia, 00–511, Poland

This dun-color, 30-story, Swedish-designed metal cube has been a fixture on the Warsaw skyline since it was introduced as the Forum hotel in 1974. Guest rooms are of average size, and those on the east side of the building have good views—but don't choose this hotel if you're counting on cheerful surroundings. Depressing tones of brown and green predominate, and the furnishings seem to have been chosen solely for function rather than comfort. The staff, used to dealing with rapid-turnover group tours, can be offhand. The hotel is in the middle of a heavily built-up area. On the plus side, it is within easy reach of the entertainment districts. Though impersonal, it's a perfectly adequate.
