Food & drink on board...

The Berlin-Warszawa Express also has a bistro-restaurant car, staffed by Wars, the Polish train caterers.  Treat yourself to a meal and linger in the restaurant for an hour or two over a beer and a meal.  A tasty sausage soup, main course of schnitzel, potato & salad served on proper china, a beer and coffee for only around 10.  You must pay in cash as credit cards may not be accepted, but both euros & zlotys are accepted.  Of course, you're also free to bring your own picnic and beer or wine along and eat at your seat.

Find hotels in Berlin or Warsaw

 

◄◄ Hotel search & price comparison.

www.hotelscombined.com checks all the main hotel booking sites at once to find the widest choice of hotels & the cheapest seller.  It was named as the World's Leading Hotel Comparison Site at the World Travel Awards 2013 and I highly recommend it, both to find hotels in even the smallest places and to check that another retailer isn't selling the same hotel for less!

www.booking.com is my favourite booking site, as it's really clear and you can usually book with free cancellation and so confirm your accommodation at no risk months before train booking opens.

Warsaw hotel recommendation...

In Warsaw I recommend the Polonia Palace Hotel, across the road from both the Palace of Culture skyscraper and Warsaw Centralna station, 20 minutes walk from Warsaw's old town.  Opened in 1913, it was the only hotel to emerge unscathed from WW2, and has been used by many famous people including General (later President) Eisenhower.  It has high-quality rooms, but at lower prices than you'd expect.
