Reviewed 13 February 2014

Hanza Hotel is in the best part of Gdansk - perfect location for tourists. We had a room with waterfront amazing view on the 4th floor. The room was very big, the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was huge but not well arrange. We are very tall, and our bathtub was place in the corner under the roof and taking a shower was a little gymnastic. I could not get strait. Pitty, because there was so much space in this bathroom. It is possible to rearrange it and keep it accessible for disables/ wheelchair.
The hotel was very clean, but he carpets were worn out, as well the furniture. On arrival I had to ask to replace 4 bulbs (!) which were broken. On the walls were photo wallpapers with pictures of Gdansk. The same picture as in neer Bar Mleczny "Turystyczny". There looked brand new. Once we went to sauna. You have to make appointment, as the premises is only for you. It could be optional, but it is not and you are limited in time. It is nice, but in my opinion everything is just too big, lots of wasted space, some brand-new things and added, but not to replace things which are already scratch, worn-out, dirty, damage. That is a very expensive hotel, and I hope it will be redecorated soon, because it is too expensive for what it is now.

Room Tip: - waterfront is amazing. - if you are tall check the shower/bathtub arrangement in you bathroom

We stayed in one of the junior suites for a week. The service was nice and prompt, front desk staff were very helpful, if a little stressed out on New Year's Eve finishing all the accounts. My only two minor niggles would be that the room was very warm even without the heating on (others might see this as an advantage!) and that the bed was a bit too soft for me (again, others might disagree). Certainly highly recommended.

The Hanza Hotel has one of the best locations in Gdansk. The hotel is along the riverwalk and faces the river. The actual entrance to the hotel is the street behind.
Check-in was smooth and the front desk staff was very professional. My room faced the river with great large windows. The room itself was big - think American style hotel rooms - much larger than what I normally encounter while traveling in Europe. Large, comfy bed with nice linens. Plenty of room for your clothes and luggage. The rooms have an electric kettle, tea bags, instant coffee and complimentary sparkling and still water that is replenished daily.
Bathroom was good size with nice fluffy towels, plenty of hot water and water pressure.
Housekeeping staff was excellent. I would put the sign on the door for housekeeping service and by the time I finished breakfast, my room was cleaned.
Free Internet (yeah!) and had a good connection in my room. All rooms are non-smoking (yeah!) per requests of previous people who stayed in the hotel. There was a sign in my room that if there was smoking, an additional charge/fine of 299 zlotys (about $100 USD) would be charged because the room couldn't be rented for a day in order to air it out. Thank you Hanza management for making the hotel non-smoking.
You do hear a little bit more noise with a room facing the river from people walking along the riverwalk, but the view was definitely worth it.
Breakfast was incredible - plenty of meat, fish, cheeses, breads, hot items and good deal of fresh fruit - there is so much to eat. No cappuccino maker but the coffee was good and strong.
I ate in the hotel's restaurant twice for dinner - good prices and excellent food.
Gdansk is such a lovely city. Even though I saw photos of the city on the web, it isn't till you actually see the city in person that you realize just how marvelous it is.
I would definitely stay at the Hanza Hotel again.

Visited Gdansk, Poland for the first time & stayed @ the Hotel Hanza, superbly situated on the waterfront of the Motlawa River directly facing the steam ship `Soldek` (now part of the maritime museum). Our friends were put in room 202, a lovely light airy room with full length of the wall window, my wife & I were put in room 404, top floor in the apex of the roof. Both rooms had stunning views across the river, the only down side of room 404 was the fact due to the high angled ceilings there was no vanity mirror for my wife & I struggled a bit with the shower, being 193cm in height.
Tea & coffee making facilities were in both rooms and were replenished every day. All staff were pleasant & helpful with the exception of one or two members of the bar staff who if they had made a mistake tried to make out it was the customers fault.
Breakfast was hearty & plentiful with an array of fish meats, salads, fruit, breads, pastries, hot polish sausage, bacon and eggs, teas, coffee, fruit juice.
Apart from the blip with the bar staff would highly recommend & would stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 404 no vanity mirror, if tall will struggle with the shower due the angle of the wall to ceilin...

Chose this over the Hilton due to trip advisor reviews and didn't regret it.We were on the 3rd floor in a very comfortable room with great views over the river.Breakfast caters for all tastes,help yourself to what you wanted,hot or cold .Location couldn't be better,straight out of the hotel and you are in the main streets of the old town in minutes. I lost my camera on the way back to the airport,even though we caught a taxi on the street near the Hilton,I emailed the Hanza with the taxi receipt and asked if they could help find an email address so I could ask if the camera had been found in the taxi.
They did more than that,they found the taxi driver,got my camera and posted it on to me,thought my chances of getting it back were zero.Brilliant service and a big thank you to Monika on the front desk.Have already recommended this Hotel, will be returning to Gdansk,which is beautiful,next year and will definitely be staying at the Hanza.

Room Tip: 307 for great river view

Stayed for a week for business. Great location - close to restaurants, tourist activity, and local history. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was very filling. The shower was a little odd and I kept getting water all over the place - but no complaints.
