“Great location but a bit overpriced”
Reviewed 23 November 2009

This hotel is in a great location in Gdansk right along the water and about a five minute walk to Dluga Street and the Neptune Fountain. The hotel was clean and comfortable but the decor was uninspired, especially in the room. The furniture was rather plain. The air conditioner was not that strong if you like a chilly room. It was a bit overpriced for the size and comfprt of the room.

Stayed at Hanza for one night in June 2009, while on a business trip to Gdansk. The hotel is situated right in the center of Gdansk, with just a few minutes of walking to the historic sights. While the rooms were neat and clean, it was obvious that some paint would have worked wonders.

Thus my only complaint would have to be the price, for the quality of the rooms, the hotel is just overpriced.

Otherwise I would recommend the hotel to anyone who needs a hotel situated in the center of the city, and who don't mind paying the high price.

We had no strong complaints about this hotel other than the fact that it was significantly overpriced at over E200 per night.
There was no porter available on arrival, no tourist information in reception (we were advised to go into town to the tourist information Bureau). The breakfast room lacked both quality & supervision. The general ambience of the hotel was certainly not superior as the price would suggest it should have been & lacked any feeling of personality.
We having travelled through many countries worldwide including several similar Eastern European cities & feel we have a good knowledge of what to expect. This hotel certainly failed us.

I stayed at Hanza hotel during summer and that was one of the biggest problems. My friend and I were given a loft bedroom without air-con! And it was absolutely boiling hot, so imagine what we had to go through...

Rooms are clean and tidy and beds quite comfy but the decor is not stunning. And for nearly EUR 200 per night (with breakfast), you expect to be stunned. Beautiful building and surroundings.

Also, while staying there, don't bother going out and trying to get lucky. Without asking (!), hotel concierge offered us escort service but again - far too expensive.

All in all, I know at least 2 hotels around Gdansk, which are better value for money and had air-con installed: if you need to stay in Gdansk, go to Holiday Inn. If you can be around but not in heart of the city, go to "Rezydent" Hotel in Sopot (short ride from Gdansk).
