An introduction to Autor Rooms

How would you describe Autor Rooms in a nutshell?

Autor Rooms is a beautiful, small four-bedroom boutique hotel in Warsaw, Poland. The hotel offers a very private and personal atmosphere for guests who want to experience a unique hotel that reflects Warsaw’s passion and character.

What was the idea behind Autor Rooms and why did you decide to open your own small hotel?

I have a graphic design company and therefore know a lot of people from the creative sector. When we realised that in Warsaw there really was no place for creatives like ourselves to come and visit, we decided to create such a place ourselves.

We found this very nice apartment in a unique pre-war building with really beautiful architecture. Seeing the house and the rooms we were inspired to bring in other creatives to help us invent Autor Rooms as a new concept of vacationing.

What about the different authors that are behind the hotel’s interior design?

Autor Rooms is a very creative place and since it was of the utmost importance to us to keep the design local, we sourced furniture by Polish designers like Comforty. This gives our vacation guests a very unique and authentic regional experience.

There were several authors in the design process, such as the architect Mateusz Baumiller who helped us with preserving the original layout of the apartments and also helped us to come up with clever ideas for bathroom designs and such.

We further invited Maria Jeglińska, an industrial designer, to design pieces inside the rooms like the mirrors, shelves, and door handles. She also designs glasses and jars, like the serving sets in the rooms.

The lighting at Autor Rooms was done by Ultra Lights, Beza Project made the blankets, and we also brought in original artwork from Galleria Starter, a gallery that features young artists.

To you personally, what is so special about staying at Autor Rooms?

I think it is the atmosphere that really makes Autor Rooms special. It might not be for everybody, but if you are traveling alone, for example, it’s a good experience. It is a boutique hotel but has a very private atmosphere in which many of our guests start up friendships and also have the opportunity to meet real Polish artists by getting invited to gallery openings.

How long would you recommend to stay at Autor Rooms to get a feel of the city?

A weekend can be really fun and just long enough to get an introduction to Warsaw and see the area. In the spring or summer, I would take three or four days because there are much more things to do outside.

What’s been the biggest reward about opening Auto Rooms?

Because of Autor Rooms we have an opportunity to meet new people coming from around the world and with all different backgrounds, which has been the biggest reward for us. We have received so many wonderful guests at this hotel and we truly enjoy seeing how much they appreciate our creation of an informal apartment but with the amenities and services of a boutique hotel.

Things to do in Warsaw

  • Art / Culture
  • Shopping / Markets
  • Night life
  • Cycling

We organise sightseeing excursions based on whatever side of Warsaw you’d like to experience. Whatever your interests are, we’ll plan an individualized program around it. For example, you can discover Warsaw’s food bars, restaurants, open markets, culinary workshops, walk through Warsaw’s architectural age of modernism with your own personal tour guide from the Architecture Center Foundation or a personal speedboat tour of the Vistula River.

My personal highlight is to tour the architecture in all the different areas of Warsaw. There are also beautiful museums, like the Museum of Modern Art, and several nice restaurants. It all depends on what our guests would like to do and see, of course.

Smak magazine can provide tours, and we always recommend some nice places to go as well. There is an alternative guide called Do It In Warsaw, which offers some unusual ideas on what to discover here, and we have that in-house for our vacation guests.

The location of Autor Rooms

The building is in a very central part of Warsaw, only a few hundred meters from Warsaw central station. You can experience pre- and post-war architecture of Poland just within a few blocks of the hotel. Our street, Lwowska, is the only street in Warsaw that survived the war, so you really get a sense of pre-war Warsaw. As a contrast, and just a few steps from our street is a square with ’50s socialist architecture.

This area has a lot of nice galleries, cafés, and bars and right now is one of the happening places in Warsaw. However, it is much less touristic and has a more natural feel to it than some of the busier cities, such as Prague.

When is the best time to visit Warsaw?

Each season offers different experiences and attractions and the city comes alive at different times of the year so that there is always something going on. During spring and summer there are many activities happening outside which you won’t be able to experience during the colder months of the year. There are markets on the weekends and various attractions happening along the river.

September is probably the best time to stay at the hotel when you still have a feeling of late summer and the city is more culturally alive with a lot of music festivals and concerts at that time. In October nature becomes especially beautiful with all the golden colours of the changing leaves, making it a very nice time to walk around.

Winter can be cold, so it’s not as pleasant, but the Christmas markets are fun to see. When there’s snow our vacation guests can go cross-country skiing in a wonderful park nearby.
