Mercure hotel in Gdansk is a nice place to stay. The hotel is situated just a little bit outside the direct centre of the city. Approx. 5 minutes walk to the main street and 10 minutes to the riverside. Hotelstaff is nice and adequate although they forgot to wake us up on the day of departure. Luckily we had set oure own alarmclock so we were on time for the airplane.
The room we had was really comfortable with a nice bathroom with a(rain)shower. The only thing less nice were the thin pillows which gave almost no support to the head and the annoying red tv light. The second day we asked for other pillows and the problem was solved. We covered the tele with a t-shirt because we could not turn the little red light off.
The hotel is very near the Solidarinosc memoriam. A little bit further is the impressive Gdansk shipyard. Not on the local tourist map but a graet site to see and to take pictures from.
The trainstation is a 5 minutes walk and the train takes you in 35 minutes (8 stops) to Sopot. A little further on the rail lies Gdynia. Don't forget to stamp your ticket before you enter the train otherwise the ride will be a expensive one. Sopot is good for a walk on the beach or the wooden pier. At the end of the pier is a great place where you can catch some sun like we did on the beautifull day visited Sopot. On the way back you can go to the areas biggest shopping mall called Galleria Baltica. Just a shopping mall nothing special.
That same night we ate at Peblo a Mexican restaurant 5 minutes from the hotel. Nice vibe en wat can go wrong with a burrito? Not much! The other day we ate expensive but tasty sushi at Domo sushi at the waterfront. Overall a nice stay in Gdansk but after 3 nights more than happy to go back to Damska.
