Prudential tower was built in 1931-1933 according to the design of Marcin Weinfeld. It was the tallest building in Poland and a symbol of pre-war Warsaw. Its image, with walls riddled by German missiles, was one of the most terrifying scenes from the devastated city.
After the war the building was rebuilt to house the Hotel Warszawa. It was one of the most popular hotels in Warsaw. After communism fall it operated for a while but then it was closed, sold and the building was abandoned for many years.
Finally in 2018 it was restored and the Hotel Warszawa came beck as a 5* hotel in a new chic style with completely new interiors. Rooms are very elegant and there are two good restaurants, available not just for the hotel`s guests.
The building was beautifuly restored and Warsaw`s icon is back finally. Nowadays it doesn`t seem to be that tall anymore but try to stand in front of it when it`s dark and the building is lit and look up – its art-deco facade will bring to your mind images like from the Gotham City.
