Accor has opened an ibis Styles hotel close to Poland’s largest airport.

Ibis Styles Warsaw Airport is located on Poleczki Street around 3.5km from the Warsaw Chopin hub, and close to the city’s Sluzewiec Horse Racecourse and the Westfield Mokotow shopping centre.

The 124-room property is housed within the former Holiday Inn Express Warsaw Airport, and features a restaurant and bar, onsite parking and meeting space accommodating up to 50 guests.

The hotel’s interiors have been inspired by the Queen’s Gambit TV series, with design elements including geometric black and white patterns in guest rooms, a reception desk featuring a chessboard motif, and oversized chess figures in the lobby area.

Accor lists 19 properties in the Warsaw area, under brands including Novotel, Mercure, Sofitel, Raffles and the ibis family (ibis, ibis Budget and ibis Styles).

The group recently opened an ibis Styles hotel close to Bucharest’s Henri Coanda International airport, and a property is also being built under the brand at Munich airport.

Commenting on the news Tomasz Murawski, director of ibis Styles Warsaw Airport, said:

“We are glad that we could join the ibis Styles family and offer a hotel inspired by retro aesthetics and chess motifs that refer to one of our favourite TV series.

“We are convinced that every guest will find something unique here. The opening of the third ibis Styles hotel in Warsaw will further strengthen the position of this unique brand in the capital.

“This is a real checkmate on the Warsaw hotel market. From the moment they cross the threshold of the hotel, guests are drawn into the world of the ibis Styles brand. The chess leitmotif runs through every stage of the guest’s stay – from the first step, through all common areas, to the room.”
