Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hotel is located at the beginning of the city center, super well located. They have friendly staff, the rooms are new, clean and have a nice size. It is warm in the winter, even the bathroom floor. If you are in doubt I recommend making a reservation with breakfast which really worths what you pay for (PLN 35). I would love to go back and would stay at this same hotel! The only question is the possible noises from the bars in the neighborhood, but this is a minor inconvenience and does not affect the quality of your experience.

We loved our stay here. It's in a fantastic location beside the Golden Gate - the walkative free tour starts here (on the other side of the gate), the large Christmas market is just on the other side of the gate & the Hucisko bus stop from the Airport is a 5 minute walk. Similarly the main train station is an easy 10 minute walk.

Pretty much all the main Gdansk attractions are a maximum of 20 minutes away (Solidarity Museum, World War II museum) with many on the main street where the hotel is. So superb location.

Breakfast was very good with fresh fruit (I loved this platter), yoghurts, hams, cheeses, salads, cereals, chia seed pots, breads & hot food.

Reception staff were lovely- but also really patient & helpful, helping us download a local transport app & buy tickets as well as helping with bus stops. A definite 10/10 for these staff.

We were on the third floor & had no issue with noise, room temperature could be controlled & room was comfortable. The only minor negative was that housekeeping didn't replenish toilet rolls during our stay & a used mug wasn't washed but otherwise the room was made up daily.

Quick check in, reception staff are very friendly.
Lovely deluxe room on the 4th floor, lift available.
Very spacious, warm, nice white bedclothes and towels. Nice little alcove with a desk, chair, fridge and phone, handy to do my makeup and hair!
If you needed the room serviced you'd have to ask at reception, for extra water, toilet rolls, towels etc
Breakfast from 7am to 11am.
Nice breakfast a lot of cold meat, breads, fish, fruit, yogurts, cereals. Hot items was scrambled eggs, bacon and hotdog. They did fry me some eggs on first morning but couldn't after when I asked.
We had breakfast at 9.30am, but on the last morning there seem to be more hit items, beans, mushrooms and pancakes and more food.
No noise problem but it was January.
Right on the Dluga main street, close to the gate and the new shopping Forum.

location of hotel is great for sightseeing, just inside the gate of the old town, but as a result very noisy! we were given room 102 which is at the front just above the entrance to the hotel. if you like to have a window open make sure you don't get this room! never slept properly for the three nights, they even left a pack of ear plugs in the room!! tells you everything! we didn't book breakfast when we made the booking, we like to see what is around so we can vary it, however, the first morning we had breakfast at the hotel, well actually it's a bar adjacent to the hotel, the cost,which I found out when leaving was 45zlty each, we had been told it was 35! it was awful, the bacon was sloppy, uncooked or burnt, nothing edible, and cold, the eggs, only 'scrambled' no fried, boiled, poached, looked like they were made of dried egg, slimy, awful! we didn't eat breakfast the other days, went somewhere else. when checking out I complained to the receptionist at the hotel, she said in a patronising manner that she would refund one of the charges, but implied I was complaining because i was trying to get out of paying - I didn't take the partial refund and left. Our room wasn't made up at all whilst we were there, no clean towels brought. room was very basic and very small, decent amount of storage though, no british TV channels so couldn't watch the news etc. overall not impressed with the hotel, won't stay there again.

Dear Scarlet, Thank you very much for staying with us and taking the time to write a review regarding your recent stay. It is extremely important to us. As a hotel, we feel responsible for each guest to feel comfortable during their stay with us. We are sorry that your stay with us was not entirely satisfactory. We pay special attention to breakfasts, the more we apologize that you did not think they were good enough. Due to the location in the very center of the old town, we are exposed to street noise. We also have patio side rooms which are quieter and we always provide earplugs. The reception is open 24 hours a day - so we can always be at the guest's request - that's why all complaints should be sent there on an ongoing basis, then we will find a solution that can help you. Thanks to this - any problems with canals on TV and room cleaning, which is only at the guest's request, can be reported at any time. Nevertheless, we are very sorry that we were not able to provide you with a satisfactory rest. Best regards, Fama Residence, Emilia

If you are visiting Gdansk you can not go wrong staying in this hotel, the location is superb just through the golden gate. Taxi's drop you off next to the entrance to the gate and you simply walk through and the hotel is there on the left. The location could not be better, you are within walking distance of all the major attractions and the staff will help you with maps directions etc should you need them.
The reception was quick and always friendly and the lift was always available, my room was small but it was the cheapest option if booking again I would maybe go for a larger room but it was clean and comfortable and had everything I needed.
Breakfast was never overly busy and had a good selection of hot and cold food, for the money I paid this was a great hotel and I may be returning later in the year and I would stay here again it was that good.

We were supposed to be visiting for a week at the end of this month. Unfortunately as I am in my third trimester, I have been told not to travel abroad, so we had to cancel. Mateusz, the manager, has very kindly given us a full refund which is so kind, especially with all the recent madness! We are very grateful and when our child is old enough, we hope to visit and enjoy the hospitality in person!

I've been to Fama Residence twice and both stays were very pleasant. The location is great - close to the main train station and all attractions of the Old Town, you can walk everywhere. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean and comfortable. I love Fama's beds, they are also very comfortable. Breakfast is great, vegetarians will find something for themselves without any problem :). I highly recommend!

Really enjoyed our 3 nights at Fama Residence. Worth upgrading to a larger room. We had 201 with comfy beds, settee and fridge. Shower good. Main bonus is the location. 10 mins walk from the railway/bus station where the 210 airport bus goes to, and the hotel is at the top of the main street next to the Golden Gate. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The room was hot and being at the front of the building we only opened the windows during the day when we were in. I can imagine it being a bit noisier in high season but they supply earplugs and we had no problems. Reception staff were ok. Yes there’s no English channels, news channel would have been nice but certainly not a deal breaker. Beautiful building and amazing location sums it all up. We would stay here again. Highly recommended..

The Fama Residence, situated next to the Golden Gate, Gdańsk is a great value hotel.
Hard to beat for the cost, very clean and staff extremely helpful at all times when asking questions at reception.
Breakfast good value and choice.
I defy anyone for the price to find anywhere better in Gdańsk.
My only niggle, having enjoyed a couple of Irish coffee’s with my travelling friend, in the hotel restaurant/bar, I enquired the cost, to be told three different prices from 3 different staff members!!!! Not good enough, sought out your pricing and stick to it!!!
Apart from that, a good value for money stay.

Great hotel ideally located right at the heart of the old town. Friendly staff and a generous, high quality breakfast welcome you as well as well appointed rooms with fridges, air con and tea making facilities. You are no more than 10 mins walk from all key attractions as well as numerous restaurants and bars. Very highly recommended
