I will be a volunteer at an English immersion in Poland this summer for 3 weeks. I will be at the program from Sunday to Friday afternoons staying outside of Warsaw at their accommodations. I am trying to book where to stay for the Friday and Saturday nights for the 4 weekends surrounding that time.
I have stayed in Airbnbs, so I am open to that. Really, anything except hostels. At the program, the volunteers share a room, so on the weekends, I want some privacy and a place to relax. I have been to Warsaw previously and seen the tourist sites so I don't necessarily need to be near the Old Town. What I need most of all is access without a lot of stairs. Of the not-highest price recommendations in RS Warsaw part of guides, it specifically mentions (lots and lots) of stairs due to a bad knee. I am thankful for those honest reviews/comments! Last time in Warsaw I stayed in an Airbnb that was on up 6 flights of stairs and on the top floor of the building. I was there in July and it was record hot temperatures. As many know, no a/c in lots of central Europe. With the heat rising, I literally woke up one night from a dream imagining I was suffocating. (Also, no fan in that apt.)
I would be happy to stay in a neighborhood not so near the tourist areas. I would prefer something near good tram/bus transportation (not metro, again the stairs/knee factor). The program's bus picks us up and drops us off near the Centrum (Centralna Train Station area). That is a main transportation hub.
Thankful for any feedback, either positive or negative, on where you have stayed in Warsaw.
