Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 February 2014

This hotel is beautifully furnished, cosy and warm even in very cold winter. We appriciate the kindness, profesionalism and courtesy of the hotel staff who served us breakfast to our room every morning. (We have been told that the dining room is under reconstruction). However this ment we were very limited in amount and choice of the food and since my husband is vegetarian, he had everyday the same: bread and yellow cheese - in a 5 stars hotel.
We booked deluxe room with view on marina and crane but unfortunatelly from the room no. 103 the view is not so good. (Rooms 101 and 102 seemed to be much more better in this way) But this room has a good spacious bathroom with a big window. I only didnt understand why they were so short with bath cosmetics - on the 3rd night we had to ask receptionist if we can get some more shower gel.
Location of this hotel shouldnt be a problem in summer, when there is a ferry to the city centre but during the winter time you have to walk around 20 mins in narrow and dark streeets untill you reach the downtown.
Nevertheless I would like to reccomend to visit Gdansk, it is an extraordinary, beautifull and special city.

My wife, my sister and her husband stayed at Podewils Hotel last weekend and we had a really nice time. I was concerned at the review below which states there was renovation underway at the Hotel but my concerns disappeared as soon as I arrived. We were greeted by wonderful, friendly, smiling staff and there was certainly no renovations underway. The Hotel was clean, peaceful and the staff very welcoming.

The lady on reception, I think her name was Hanna, was so friendly and helpful, a really nice person and is a real credit to the Hotel.

This is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Gdansk, don't hesitate, just book it :)

We stayed at the hotel in January and it was lovely and cosy. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the views from across the river are gorgeous. We liked the fact it wasn't right in the middle but in walking distance for everywhere we wanted to go.

Im Sorry to say, that this hotel was a big disapointment!! The view was not that good. The room was dusty and the bathroom partially not clean. People could see in to the bathroom from the street. When we arrived they startet restoring the hotel, and the climate inside became terrible, and made me sick. They were still working at 00.30 in the night.. Noisy and dusty, and we had to move! I will not recommend this hotel, and cant understand how they got 5 stars....!?

Faultless! From the greeting upon arrival, the service, the room, the breakfast, the staff to the hotel building itself, everything was absolutely perfect. A short stroll along the water to the town square, it is perfectly placed. I hope to go back to Gdansk and when I do I will not even look for another hotel, it will be straight back to Podewils. Thank you to all the staff, and if the owners are reading this may I make one suggestion?.....Don't change a thing!

Room Tip: Room 201, excellent view from multiple windows.

Very nice little hotel in "Downton Abbey" style, very nice and helpful staff, nice breakfast and only a few meters to the ferry or a 5 minutes walk to old town. We will definately come back and stay at this hotel .

We were 2 couples going together to celebrate 2 birthdays and the stay was perfect - more than what we had dreamed of. Everybody in the hotel was very friendly and we felt so welcome and well taken care of. The rooms were beautiful with the great view of the crane, the river and old town. It took us 5-10 minutes to go to old town and all the interesting sigths. The breakfast was excellent with a varied selection of hot food (menu in Norwegian),, fruits, cheeses and local hams etc. The service at the reception was very helpful and we got all the information we needed for sigths, shopping and restaurants. We will definitely go back to Podewils next time we go to Gdansk, preferably during summer next time, to see the town with flowers and more life along the river.

Room Tip: 2 rooms on first floor with a small hall to share and view of the crane, the river and old town.
