Podewils Hotel
Ranked #1 of 85 Hotels in Gdansk
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 June 2014

The Podewils Hotel is the only 5 star hotel in Gdansk. It is right by the waterfront and a few minutes walk from the City Centre. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. It is a real gem and is highly recommended.

What a special place this is. It sits just across the water from the famous Gdansk waterfront , and affords brilliant views. You are in easy walking distance from the fabulous old town.
The hotel is brilliant: elegant, civilised, beautiful. it is not unlike staying in a small stately home. The standards of service are exceptional, and the room was one of the very best we have had on our European tour. Breakfast was also of the highest quality.
Our only regret was that we had only one night in this most refined and splendid of hotels.

If you want to spend a few days in a lovely place perfectly matching with a lovely city, this is the hotel to choose! :-)

+ The staff is really friendly & helpful.
+ The building (out & inside) is so stylish.
+ Generous and tasty breakfast.
+ Good location (10 minutes walk to the very centre but try once the little navette from the hotel to other side: cheap & fast, less than a minute, till 4 pm). Some good restaurants and cafés are already in the Hotel street.
+The bathroom is spacious and covered with marble.
- Open window from time to time as the rooms are so well and cutly furmished that fresh air may be missing at night (but it maybe my problem).
- The noise isolation from the main door room is not that great and you can hear sounds as door opening... from the corridor during the night. Just a bit annoying but you'll survive. :-)
If you can, may be better to take a taxi from the airport (around €15, 50 PLN)

REALLY GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY! WARMLY RECOMMENDED! :-)

Room Tip: It is worth taking a room with view on the river side (direct sight on the famous crane).

From the moment we arrived, for a long weekend with some friends,the staff and service were excellent. This hotel is very good value, if it were in the UK would be at least twice the price.
Poland is a good value destination. We choose the standard room which is up several flights of stairs, ok for us, but no lift, so not for everybody. Spacious bathroom with nice toileteries, dressing gowns and slippers.. Breakfast is served downstairs in a very pleasant room and the choice and quality of food was very good. The hotel is very peaceful and is furnished in the grand country house style, it was a former wealthy Merchants home. It is well situated for the Old Town which is a short walk away. We didn't eat in the restaurant, as we wanted to try some of the many local eateries, but the food looked excellent. If Gdansk is your destination then this hotel would take some beating.

Room Tip: The rooms at the top of the hotel may not suit everyone as there is no lift.

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.
