Why we chose Warsaw: it's very cheap there (or thats what we thought). The return plane ticket with Ryan air was about 50 pounds and the hotel stay at 5 star Marriott was about 50 pounds for two nights.
The check-in was very late at 22 pm although we reached the hotel at 14 pm, so we were upgraded to an executive room, with free internet and access to executive lounge with dinner. Ahhhmazing. The staff was super friendly and helpful. This was the view from our room window.
The first day we went to the old town, did the horse carriage ride and ate at an italian restaurant. I always have adored the small older parts of european cities, they take you back to a different era.
It was very windy and cold, so when we got off from the carriage ride we went to a cafe we found in the narrow streets. It was called the shabby chic cafe. It was run by some girls and they had put so much thought and love in decorating it, that we felt at home in there.
Then we did some shopping at an enormous shopping mall złote tarasy which was located opposite our hotel. I was a little dissappointed that although there was a lot of shops and brands, there wasnt much selection. I still bought a few pieces for my son just for the sake of buying something. The prices were pretty much same as where i live so i will not exactly call it very cheap. However, its cheap in terms of food and grocceries. After that we did some much deserved pampering. Had a haircut, colouring, hair mask and styling. I paid 100 pounds for this all, pretty reasonable i would say. Also did pedicure from the marriott hotel spa. Very satisfied with everyting. We also watched the movie 'the other woman' at the zloty tarasy cinema. Not a great movie, but a fun one to enjoy with your girlfriends.
Third day we checked out and decided to go to a famous park, but it started raining so we changed our mind and went for lunch instead. Thats pretty much all what we did there. All in all it was a great trip with my friends.
Its not and extensive guide to what to do in Warsaw, we wee there just to have fun, relax and get away from our pretty hectic life for a while. Thats why we stayed calm and didnt rush to see places.
Hope you enjoyed the post :)
