We stayed here in October last year for a (lovely!) birthday trip to Gdansk. The hotel is about a half an hour trip by taxi from the airport.
It's actually on the opposite side of the canal (?) from the main part of the city, but that means if you stay in one of the front bedrooms you have an AMAZING view of the crane/krantor, especially after dark when everything is lit up. The walk to the town is only 5/10 minutes.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and welcoming (even after we turned up very early after a morning flight) and happy to help with printing maps/giving directions/calling taxis etc. Both the interior (lots of deep colours and wood paneling) and exterior of the hotel are beautiful - the bedroom had plenty of room to leave suitcases unpacked and half open everywhere. The room and bathroom were both very clean and, most importantly for Poland in October, cosy! (Loved the fluffy white bathrobes!) Beds were very comfy as were the pillows. Fresh flowers... Fully stocked minibar... TV with built in DVD player... What else do you need?! (We liked the little hand-written note left every evening informing us of the weather for the next day!)
The restaurant offers a pretty impressive breakfast buffet, although fish and cheese are always a bit much for me so early in the morning! They also offer toast and cereal and lovely fried mushrooms. I think we ate in the restaurant only once in the evening (but only because the city has SO many restaurants to try) and the food and wine were both good as was the service.
The hotel also possesses a sauna which is a nice luxury for a small hotel.
All in all, one of the best hotels we've stayed in, and I would definitely pick it as my first choice hotel if (hopefully when) we return to Gdansk!
