In black cod we trust


Warsaw’s electric downtown

Warsaw’s first dining-led hotel, Nobu Hotel Warsaw is a smorgasbord for the senses. The juxtaposition of stark, space-age new build and heritage art deco wing (with interiors straight from the set of The Great Gatsby) takes care of the eye candy. And, well, it’s Nobu, darling, so the food – show-stopping black cod miso, softshell crab karaage with spicy ponzu, and melt-in-the-mouth flambéed Wagyu steak – is the raison d'être that reels in Warsaw’s in-crowd. When not working your way through the signature menu at breakfast, lunch and dinner, go full zen mode in the spa, sauna and vertical terrace garden, or step out onto stylish Srodmiescie streets, where the sensory saturnalia continues apace.

Our favourite rooms

There are two distinct aesthetics at Nobu Hotel Warsaw. Choose between the heritage wing’s art deco stylings, all restored vintage furniture, oversized mirrors, parquet floors and brass trims, or the modern block’s trademark Nobu look: concrete and glass minimalism softened by traditional Japanese design features like slatted wooden doors and ceramic teapots. Top-floor suites in the modern wing have the best city views, but our money’s on the old-school Art Deco Suite, where luxury yukata robes and a free-standing bath tub invite Gatsby-esque levels of decadence, especially when accompanied by a bottle of champagne on ice.


The spa’s treatment range includes traditional Japanese facial massages and the signature Nobu Zen massage. There’s also a sauna and steam room.

Packing tips

Warsaw’s rich but tragic history has spawned countless excellent books. Go full immersion mode on your break by diving into one of the very best: Polish poet Miron Bialoszewski’s excellent Memoir of the Warsaw Uprising. And don’t forget to cue up a playlist to accompany visits to the Chopin Museum and strolls around the maestro’s 19th-century haunts.


Gym bunnies will be in clover: state-of-the-art Technogym fitness equipment includes cardio machines with video screens, free weights, a stretching area and more.


Poland loves pooches so much that Krakow even hosts its own annual Dachshund Parade, so it’s no surprise that dogs are welcome in all room types here, including suites. There’s a fee of PLN200 for each pet, which includes a dog bed and bowl. See more pet-friendly hotels in Warsaw.


Nobu Hotel Warsaw is a grown-up kind of place, so there are no specific clubs or facilities for Little Smiths.

Sustainability efforts

Nobu Hotel Warsaw is LEED certified and has green garden walls on the terrace, providing natural insulation and cooling properties. Local suppliers are used wherever possible and a recycling programme helps keep waste to a minimum. Motion sensors also conserve energy by ensuring lighting is only used where and when required.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Window seats overlook the tree-lined street outside and allow for some professional people-ogling opportunities.

Dress Code

You don’t have to go full kimono to fit in here, but garb at the more glamorous end of the spectrum will be more in-keeping with the hip local crowd.

Hotel restaurant

Nobu requires little introduction, having achieved near legendary status since Robert de Niro first tasted chef Nobuyuki ‘Nobu’ Matsuhisa’s culinary masterpieces back in the late Eighties. Thus, a partnership was born, and the restaurant group’s signature dishes have since become almost as famous as De Niro himself. So: come for the black cod with miso and yellowtail jalapeño sashimi, and stay for the Wagyu beef dumplings and multi-course omakase tasting menu. Then return again in the morning for the Matsuhisa Benedict – Don’t miss your chance to feast on the signature Matsuhisa Benedict, an umami marriage of Dorset crab, shiso béarnaise, spinach, salmon and eggs – truly the breakfast of champions. The decor is typically Japanese in style, all clean lines, wooden slats and decorative ceramics, and there’s a live DJ on Friday and Saturday nights.

Hotel bar

The restaurant’s Nobu Bar serves a range of bar meals alongside cool cocktails, Polish vodkas and more. Try the Japanese Mojito: shiso, mint and vanilla liberally laced with Zubrowka ison grass vodka, or an Oni Negroni, with gin, sake and Aperol. Upstairs, Sakebar by Nobu is a cool, contemporary supper club, with coloured lights that flicker behind the bar. A floating sculpture overhead provides an eye-catching (and ever more hallucinatory) centrepiece as the cocktails and sake begin to flow.

Last orders

The restaurant serves lunch between noon and 3pm daily, and dinner from 6pm-11pm. The Sakebar keeps the cocktails flowing until 2am on Friday and Saturday nights.

Room service

Round the clock, meaning classic Nobu signature dishes are yours on demand at any time of the day or night.

Wilcza 73

Part art deco tenement, part sci-fi space cruiser, Nobu Hotel Warsaw cuts a show-stopping dash in Srodmiescie, Warsaw’s trendy downtown residential district.


Warsaw Chopin Airport is seven kilometres from the hotel – the drive will take somewhere in the region of 20 to 30 minutes, depending on traffic. Transfers can be arranged on request, with pick-up prices starting at PLN320 for up to three passengers.


The S2 train shuttles passengers from the airport to Warsaw Central train station, a 10-minute stroll from the hotel, for just PLN4.40. Warsaw Central serves cities around Poland and beyond, including Wrocław, Berlin, Prague and Vienna.


Rental cars are available at the airport and there’s an underground car park a short walk from the hotel. However, Warsaw is a very walkable city with reliable bus, tram and metro services aplenty, so rolling up in your own set of wheels is probably an unnecessary extravagance.

Worth getting out of bed for

Ultra-hip concept stores and gleaming boutique hotels rub shoulders with crumbling communist-era dive bars and bullet-pocked tenements in trendy Srodmiescie, where many buildings still bear the scars of Warsaw’s bloody past. The eclectic mish-mash of styles, complemented by some of the city’s finest supersized street art, invites aimless, camera-roll-filling wanders. 

Direct your feet (and camera) towards the oft-overlooked Warsaw Fotoplastikon. A fascinating preserved relic of the city’s pre-war (and pre-cinema) era, and one of just a handful of city-centre buildings to survive World War II, this stereoscopic theatre became something of a symbol of Polish grit, serving as a clandestine meeting place for the wartime resistance movement. Viewing century-old three-dimensional images in this deeply atmospheric space is quite the unique thrill, regardless of whether you can read the descriptions (in Polish) or not.

The Fotoplastikon serves as an outpost of the extraordinary Warsaw Rising Museum, essential to any deeper understanding of Poland’s devastation during World War II. Through immersive exhibits and soundscapes, the museum tells the story of – and pays tribute to – the heroes of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, a 63-day struggle by Polish resistance fighters to drive out occupying Nazi forces. Exhibits include weapons, love letters, full-sized fighter planes, replica sewage tunnels and a moving memorial wall.

Revered for its striking Soviet-era architecture, the Palace of Culture and Science is equally reviled by many Varsovians. Joseph Stalin ‘gifted’ this opulent skyscraper to the Polish capital in 1955, and it has long been viewed as the defining symbol of Soviet oppression here, a permanent monument to a little man’s giant ego. Step inside this divisive landmark, where gleaming marble floors, elaborate staircases and car-sized chandeliers speak of Soviet decadence, and the 30th-floor observation terrace offers panoramic city vistas from what is still one of the tallest buildings in Poland. The quirky Museum of Technology and Museum of Evolution here are also well worth an hour or two of your time. 

It’s a 30-minute stroll from the hotel to Warsaw’s atmospheric old town. Almost completely destroyed during the war, it was carefully and meticulously reconstructed afterwards, resulting in a colourful mix of mediaeval-style façades, cobbled market squares and oxidised copper-green rooftops. Dodge camera-toting tourists along its narrow alleyways and don’t miss the lavish Royal Palace, fascinating Museum of Warsaw, and gothic St John’s Archcathedral, final resting place of Poland’s last monarch, the 18th-century king Stanislaw Antoni Poniatowski.

Local restaurants

Just around the corner from Nobu Hotel, Hala Koszyki is a veritable Warsaw institution. This early 20th-century Art Nouveau-style market has been fully restored, its pre-war brickwork dusted down and its bullet scars patched up to give it a second lease of life as a hipster food hall par excellence. Inside, the building’s industrial iron framework is softened by festoons of foliage and decorative hanging lamps. You’re spoiled for choice here with dining options that cover all the major food groups: sushi, burgers, burritos, tapas and more. Hit up Ćma for some of the best modern Polish cuisine in town: belly-busting portions of classic meat pierogi (dumplings), zurek (sour rye soup) and bigos (hunter’s stew with sauerkraut) served against a backdrop of exposed brick walls, colourful street art and… giant metal insects. It’s open 24/7 so you need never wonder where your next Bison Grass Sour is coming from.

For something a little more intimate, try supper at Nolita, a monochrome-chic bistro that’s also within stumbling distance of the Nobu. The contemporary dishes here draw influence from world cuisines: Poland, the Med and Southeast Asia are all up for grabs. The tasting menu dazzles with grilled teriyaki octopus, Wagyu pizza and bluefin tuna tartare. Or go à la carte for the tempura langoustines and chargrilled Wagyu fillet.

Local cafés

One of the great benefits of staying in a neighbourhood as cool as Srodmiescie is that you’re all but guaranteed top-tier coffee joints on your doorstep. Case in point: Coffeedesk is close enough to the hotel that even the most caffeine-deprived of morning people should be able to manage the short walk. This light-filled café with colourful seating and exposed brick walls is a relaxed space for no-nonsense speciality brews and pastries, as well as boxes of teas and ground coffee to take away.

Nearby Relax na Wilczej is the younger sibling of perennially popular Warsaw institution Relaks, and shares a similarly artistic outlook, boasting as its centrepiece an eye-popping mural by local artist Mariusz Tarkawian. It’s also much closer to the hotel, and its short-but-effective coffee menu is well worth the 10-minute stroll.

Local bars

Jazz fans should make their way to the basement of the hotel building, where the Jassmine club awaits. An industrial mecca for thirsty office workers, Bar Koszyki sits at the heart of the hall, allowing you to immerse yourself in its sights and sounds and indulge in a spot – OK, a lot – of people-watching. Elbows at the ready to jostle your way to the bar for a signature Koszyki cocktail or beer, neither of which are available anywhere else. Head upstairs to the mezzanine, where Upper Deck offers additional cocktail options in more refined surroundings.

Sud-lovers and historians alike make a bee(r)line for Cuda na Kiju, a multi-level craft beer mecca set in the former headquarters of the Polish Communist Party on Nowy Świat (but don’t let that put you off). Bright, airy interiors, more than a dozen Polish and international craft brews on tap, and a solid line in late-night pizzas mean this place has long shaken off the spectre of its previous occupants.

Anonymous review


Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this destination-dining hotel in downtown Warsaw and knocked themselves up a wistful sake cocktail, a full account of their frankly gluttonous break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Nobu Hotel Warsaw…

When space cruises become the holidays of the future, intergalactic star-liners might look something like the façade of Nobu Hotel Warsaw, a great space-age prow that cuts a swathe through the streets of Srodmiescie. Inside is no less arresting. A corkscrew wooden staircase spirals upwards from the lobby, an otherwise uncluttered space that leans heavily into Nobu’s trademark Japanese aesthetic. Public areas showcase Polish artworks from the celebrated Jankilevitsch Collection and rooms in both the new wing and heritage art deco annexe feature pieces by artist Anna Bimer. Of course it’s mostly about the restaurant here, though. Happily, Nobu Hotel Warsaw continues to eschew the kind of gimmickry normally associated with celebrity Hollywood backers, instead focusing on the signature Japanese-Peruvian dishes that made its name in the first place.
