The best areas to stay in Warsaw
So you know where you are in Warsaw, here’s a simple map showing Warsaw’s different districts:
The light blue coloured districts are where to stay in Warsaw if you’re here for anything less than a week.
Here’s a little overview of these areas:
Śródmieście, literally translating to ‘middle city’, is obviously the centre of Warsaw. If you’re only staying in Warsaw a night or two, this is the area that you’ll want to stay. Most tourist attractions and hotels in Warsaw are located here.
Żoliborz, north of the city centre is a lovely quiet and green part of Warsaw. A great place for families and seniors to stay. Some very nice hotels and serviced apartments.
Wola, Ochota and Mokotów are densely populated, but also have great facilities and incredible public transport to the city centre. Great places to stay for longer periods of time.
Praga Północ and Praga Południe are historically the ‘rough’ areas of Warsaw. In the last 5 years though, these districts have seen a lot of investment and are quickly becoming Warsaw’s urban hipster capital.
What to consider when figuring out where to stay in Warsaw
There’s no point picking a fancy hotel in Warsaw if it takes you an hour to get to Warsaw’s tourist attractions.
Here’s what you need to think of when checking out the best hotels in Warsaw:
- Location. How do I get to my accommodation from the airport? How do I get to the tourist attractions from where I’m staying?
- Hotel, hostel, Airbnb, serviced apartment? What do you want?
- Service. Here for business and need a shirt dry cleaned? You won’t get that at a cheap hostel
- Budget. While Warsaw is cheap compared to elsewhere in Europe, value is still important.
