Leonardo Royal Warsaw roomIn Warsaw, Poland, we stayed at the Leonardo Royal Warsaw Hotel. In the centre of Warsaw, we had the opportunity to speak to the city general manager, Mr. Nino Rosenlund. He agreed to an interview; the results were enlightening and informative. Nino has an extensive career with quality hotels in several countries. Further, I was interested in speaking to him about customer service, which he is passionate about.

The interview has so much that we’ve split it into three parts.
