Absolutely wonderful location for touring. Directly across street from train station, five minute walk to Solidarity Shipyards, ten minute walk from Old Town. Rooms are comfortable but spartan. Breakfast is average and other dining was well below.
Stay here but eat elsewhere.

Good Location, front of main trainstation(Gdansk Glowny) and front of bus stop to airport(line 210). Near to Old Town too. The Midle of everything.
Very good value for money, twin room around 70€/day with very good buffet breakfast.
Very basic chain Hotel.

I had been to the huge Mercure previously in Gdansk (sorry, no review for that one, that was back in 2010!) and was not overly impressed with it. So I decided to try to the Scandic, one reason was that on check-out, we had an early train to catch (7am) and the price was good (around 70 Euro/night) including breakfast.

I spent five nights here and I was very pleased I chose the Scandic. The property used to be a Holiday Inn so the rooms are not 'normal' Scandic quality, I would say they are better. Reception staff were always courteous and friendly. Rooms were a nice size, clean and with free Wi-Fi throughout. You could be picky and say some parts of the rooms are slightly old looking, but they served their purpose and everything worked.

The hotel is facing the station (other side of a huge busy road) but with the excellent sound-proofing I heard nothing from outside. The old town was a nice 10-15 min walk away and I prefer not to stay in the centre of an old-town of any city. There is a shopping centre nearby, Madison, which has some cafe/restaurant options as well. Gdansk centre is relatively small and easily walkable.

Breakfast was very good, great choices and I have to say I particularly liked the pancakes. The bar was only tried once, a bit expensive and spent the other nights enjoying the many other bars that the city has.

With the station being so close, it was simple to get the train into Sopot, as well as our early train when we checked-out.

Yet again, another four star review, I would be likely to stay here when I return to Gdansk (it's only a matter of time, it's a fantastic part of Poland).

Stayed 2 nights as part of a land tour.
Across from the train station which links to Gdynia and other cities west.
Room was nice. Standard amenities. Wifi was a bit tricky.
Front desk was very courteous and knowledgeable.

Second time we have stopped overnight. This time we arrived at 1 am following a delayed flight. A very good reliable hotel near the railway station and a modest walk to the old town (of course if you are not very mobile this might not suit). Good room and competent friendly service. Not budget accommodation, but by Gdansk standards the price is ok.

I stayed at the Scandic in Gdansk in conjunction with speaking at the CMO Congress in Gdansk.

Honestly, Scandic would not have been my first choice, but I was pleasantly surprised. Here is the lowdown;

Pros:
- I stayed in jr. Suite 303, and the room was just perfect
- Good location right across the main train station and a quick drive or walk to the Old City of Gdansk
- Service was good and efficient
- Free and fast internet connection throughout the property

Cons:
- it's not Hilton ;-)

I did not try the breakfast, nor did I eat at the restaurant, but I heard from others that it is decent.

Overall, I enjoyed my 3 nights there and will consider staying there upon my next visit to Gdansk.

Room Tip: Get a room on one of the top floors for a better view of Gdansk

Central location, basic but clean rooms, good breakfast, 15 minute walk from the old town, very comfortable overall. There are better choices in Gdansk in my opinion (Hilton, Radisson, Qubus to name a few) but in terms od value for money Scandic leads the way.
