To and from Warsaw Chopin Airport
Taxi corporations recommended by Warsaw Chopin Airport available just outside the arrival hall:
The estimated cost of the taxi transfer from the airport to the city centre is approx. PLN 40 (approx. EUR 9.35), but it depends on the time and day of the travel.
If you need to order a taxi to travel within the city during your stay, please ask your hotel concierge for help or recommendations.
You may also use bus line 175 departing directly from the public bus stop by the arrival hall. It will take you to Plac Piłsudskiego which is right next to the University of Warsaw. Bus 175 goes past most of the SED recommended hotels. It will definitely be more convenient than the train connection recommended by the airport authorities.
