Fairly nice hotel at the edge of old town Gdansk. Definitely close enough to walk to old town. Outside appearance of the hotel is unremarkable, empty lots on both sides but a small mall at the front across the street. The interior appears to have been renovated. Nice enough room, not extremely large but ok, comfortable bed, shower only. Not many English TV channels. Had a nice view over the old town (room was at the back of the building). Bath towel not exactly plush, but serviceable. Not sure if all of the rooms are laid out the same but in my bathroom one had to be a bit of a contortionist to reach the toilet tissue. No bathrobes, slippers, washcloth, sewing kit, etc., just the basics, soaps and liquid bath/shampoo gels. Bottles of water in the room and the nice touch of a small box of chocolates. No WiFi, just cable connection to the internet in the room, cable provided by the front desk. Safe in the room. Had problems keeping the room cool, even though it was March, and the nights were cool the room was a bit stuffy, the window can only be opened a small amount and no air flow. Tried the A/C (with the windows closed, as instructed on the thermostat) but no joy ( I have a sneaking suspicion some of the hotels in Europe turn off the A/C until the height of summer as this is not the first time I’ve had problems). Desk staff speak English and very friendly, polite and helpful. All of the staff I dealt with had an excellent attitude. Breakfast staff helpful as well. Breakfast was good enough with your basic scrambled and boiled eggs, mushrooms, sausages, bacon (although a bit tough, not crispy), mini pancakes, fresh fruit, cold cuts, buns, cheeses, juices and cereals, and a make to order egg bar, but am really starting to dislike those self serve coffee machines, haven’t found one in a hotel yet that makes a decent cup of coffee. All in all, satisfied with my stay and would stay here again. A couple of notes, there is an airport bus that charges 9.90 Z(as of this writing), a taxi is minimum 54Z, but…. you have to tell the front desk that you plan on taking the bus, otherwise it may not stop at the hotel for pick up during the off season. The same bus can be taken from the Airport to the hotel. There is a small business center behind the elevators, good for printing out boarding passes, but the printed page needs to be picked up from the front desk (once the correct printer has been selected).
