Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jordan64 More than a regular Holiday Inn
Location: Jozefow is easily reached by car or by suburban train (S1 from city centre!) in just 25minutes… and though on the edge of the Capital, you will think you are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of big city life.. Holiday Inn is situated next to a river (Swider) in the woods and just off the main road. Its surrounded by lawns, lakes and greenery.. Just across the street is a small shopping mall with a Piotr and Pawel supermarket, Pepco etc. The grounds of the hotel are like a resort.. Very big and very safe and secure especially for kids.. There is a golf driving range, mini golf, tennis courts, Zip lining in the adjacent woods, basketball / volleyball court, big kids playground, a grill restaurant as well as the terrace of the Luna Sol restaurant.. Plus lots of seats and sun loungers in the landscaped gardens… Just behind the hotel there are lots of woodland walks with routes from 1.5km to 6-8km clearly marked.
Lobby/Reception.. professional, well groomed, informed staff who are up to date with your booking when you get to the desk. Check in was seamless with a room allocated on floor 3 facing the lake and golf course.. (you also have a choice of facing the river). Staff are always very friendly and welcoming.. Off the reception is the Luna Sol restaurant (main restaurant) and a very good lounge bar with a comprehensive food menu.. there is also a patio area outside the bar for al fresco dining.
Amenities: Highlight of most peoples stay is the amazing pool with hydrotherapy jets, geysers and Jacuzzi. There is also a big sauna and steam room and a top of the range beauty spa. The gym is small but has all you need for a basic workout, but with the pool, tennis, woodland walks etc, you won’t miss the chance to get some exercise! There are also bicycles for hire from the fitness centre reception and kms of cycle paths in the area.
Kids get their own playroom which is crammed with all kinds of soft toys, games and computerised screens..
There is a business area with computer and printer.. plus another games room for older kids or teens.
Room: All rooms have a big balcony. The executive floor 3 room I got was spacious, nicely designed in relaxing colours and had a table and 2 chairs on the balcony. The TV is high-tech with a broad range of international news channels and movies on demand. Bed was large (a real king size) and comfortable with the standard Holiday Inn pillow choice. My room had a welcome platter of fruit, water and handmade chocolates! (the 5star touch!) and had a good amenities tray for coffee in your room. Bathroom was standard with bath and shower, fluffy towels and gowns and had Thierry Mugler Toiletries! (another 5 star touch!) and everything was spotless!
Breakfast: Big Big buffet with cook to order choices also available. Big range of local items, including cheeses, jams, cakes etc.. and a good hot food selection. If the buffet is too much choice then opt for ordering breakfast in the bar. Food and bar staff is top class and do their best to meet the needs of even the most demanding clientele!
Overall: Of all the Holiday Inns I stay at, this is the one where I wish time would pass more slowly. With so much to do and see time just disappears and it’s ‘time to check out’ before you know it! The minute you arrive on site you know this is no ordinary Holiday Inn, the atmosphere is relaxing and even when the hotel is full, you will find places to get away from it all. For those with kids it has everything you need to keep them busy in a resort style territory.. For those, like me, who just want to switch off.. then the Pool/sauna/Jacuzzi/bicycle ride or walk in the forest choices are multiple. Or you could just sit on your balcony and watch everyone else using up their energy!
