Polonia Palace Hotel and Folk Gospoda in Warsaw

If you have already read my previous post, you probably know, we arrived later than we planned to Warsaw and to our hotel-Polonia Palace hotel. The hotel is in the very center of Warsaw and is one of the best stays and value for money hotels I have ever stayed. Having read the tripadvisor advice in advance, I have already asked, not a main street room, but a side street room instead, in order to avoid the street voice. That was settled, but we were asked to wait about another hour, for our room to be ready. we were just starting to be angry, but luckily the receptionist guy told us that our room is upgraded to a suit, which is a nicer and bigger room. Well, that sound fine than, right?

So after waiting one more hour, we finally settled in our room. The hotel is 100 years old, but nicely refurbished and minimally decorated. Everything you need is on arm’s length. A fine restaurant, a bar, relaxing lobby and high ceiling rooms with finest bed and most importantly very very helpful staff. By the time, we reached our room, it was already time for dinner, so we went to the reception to ask some advice. What they did was more than an advice. They provided a booklet of fine restaurants with a few paragraphes of what they provide each. A couple of dozens of alternatives to choose from and the receptionist staff were very eager to answer any question about them. So we chose to go a local cuisine one called Folk Gospoda, which was a 5-10-minute-taxi away from our hotel.

Folk Gospoda looked more local than we tought, with wooden interior, needlework cushions and dark little windows.

The most common food in Warsaw is dumplings, where various kinds of staff dumped in flour, and boiled or fried.

The wine of the evening was a house wine. Well, I am not a wine expert, but I can say it was -how can I say- awful.

The other food we chose were not so bad, but the best thing I suppose was what our son had ordered. Any guess?

The white think is very very buttery butter.
