Since we've all been picking at the worst things in Poland, I thought it only far to highlight some of the good things, but to simplify things I'll we stick to Warszawa in this post, as it's the city I know best ;)

The best hotel: Without Question - The Rialto.
The best hostel: Not really a hostel, but Hotel Atos in Sadyba is just as cheap and great value. Tram stop right outside the entrance, so your in the centre in 15 mins.

The best restaurant: Belvedere - simply jaw dropping interior, and the food is always first class. Expensive by Warsaw standards, but worth every penny for a special romantic occasion

The best bistro/cafe: Too many to choose from.........
The best Polish restaurant: Tradycja Restauracja Polska
The best kid-friendly place: Blue Cactus - Mexicain restaurant that goes out of its way to entertain your little monsters. The food's not bad either.

The best Sunday breakfast/brunch: The little cafe in The Cenre for Contemporary Art in £azienki Park.
The best unique Warsaw bar: not found it yet!
The best place to drink outdoors: Don't know the name, but there's a bar/restaurant in the middle of Pole Mokotowskie that has a great bbq.

The best style bar: Downstairs at Papaya on ul. Foksal
The best attraction: £azienki - and the peacocks.
The best sports facilities: Not had time for that yet, but the gym/spa on the roof of Rialto is quite good, more for relaxing than exercising!

The best small independent gallery: Not found any of significance, appreciated.
The best museum: Terribly designed layout, but for sheer poignancy - The Warsaw Uprising Museum.
The best night club: Foksal 19 - bloody expensive drinks though!

Feel free to add to the list.

nothing in stare miasto?

- I wouldn't know, I tend to stay away from the old town - too many tourists and rip off joints, though you are probably right that that would be the place to seek out galleries. Might give it a try next time. thx.
