better than expectedPosted Jan 28, 2014
quite far from central station, but good connection to airport. Nice room, free tea, wi-fi.
OK placePosted Oct 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
Its main selling point is its location. While on a back road it is only 10 mins away from the main tourist area of warsaw. I had a single room which was quite minimalistic but OK. Reception staff were friendly and helpful but I check out is 11 and I was kicked out of the room by the cleaning staff at 11.04 which I was shocked at most places give you a little flexibility. That said I would stay in it again

tamka hotel is more of a hostel and during our stay a large group of young students were present. however this was not a problem. it is a low cost value accomodation for warsaw with good transport links to central warsaw and beyond.

Stay AwayPosted May 31, 2012 on Hotels.com
Firstly very disappionted to turn up to hostel Tamka, not Hotel Tamka as advertise. From the outside looks aweful, but work is being done. The HOSTEL was full of young students, making noise late into the night. Our room was one undecorated small box, while the students seemed to have the nicer room. The room had no paint on the walls, just finished in plaster, and wires hanging out of the wall. The receptionist forgot to mention to us that the room was a mess. And just to top it off, we were unable to pay by credit card. Not impressed.

Tamka - Looks can be deceiving!Posted Jan 14, 2012 on Hotels.com
Outside, this looks like a place you would stay away from. Inside, however, this is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Clean rooms, friendly staff, and lots of free amenities (linens, towels, breakfast) made Tamka a winner in my book. Currently doing renovations, but don't let that deter you, great hostel at an even better price. In addition, this hostel is a short walk from the Old Town and the University, great sightseeing!

A Reasonable Place to Spend the NightPosted Sep 19, 2011
Staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English; the breakfast was awesome (nice and hearty -- a welcome change from white bread and jam I'd been getting in Italian hostels); the location is good (close to old city and within a block or so of the Chopin museum) and easy to get to by bus from the airport. Renovations were under way that made the place a bit less comfortable than it might have been, but I assume that's temporary. I'm not sure I would choose the boy-girl mixed dorm again...boys are kind of smelly...And we had to choose between having the window open (very loud street noise) and having it shut (hot, stuffy and even more smelly). Other than that, it was a good place to be.

Not a good Hostel or Hotel????Posted Apr 22, 2011
I asked in advanced how to get to this hotel from Main train station, and the information was incorrect so I have to take a taxi the charged me 10 euros. . When I got there it was a Hostel and not an Hotel, how it said at the expedia web site. The only positive was that a girl who talked me in spanish which surprised because it was the first time I heard someone speaking my language. She send me to the 3rd floor with no lift and my belongings were too heavy. Some rooms were under construction, still my room was The room had no curtains, the internet service was weak, the cleaning conditions were bad, the ceiling was broken. I asked to have dinner in the surroundings and there were no restaurants available. They send me at 10.30 pm to main station again with some slotis coins because I couldn`t change money. Finally I didn`t go because it was too dangerous. I slept very badly, I was hungry and really I didn`t feel well. In the morning I had very poor breakfast with no sufficient facilities. I explained all this to the recepcionist next morning and she didnn`t care, only she showed indifference.?! So for me unfortunately was a bad experience.
