“A realy beautiful hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2011

A realy beautiful hotel in the heart of Old Town in Gdansk. The building with the amazing Baroque facade from 18th Century is very well preserved and very stylish. Well situated over the Motlawa River. My rooms was very spacious and the bathroom had a very big outside window making it very bright and with a nice view of the old port crane. Service was excellent. Wifi worked perfectly. They offer very good breakfast. However the hotel is a little bit overpriced. Perfect choice for fans of elegant, old stylish hotels.

We stayed at the Podewils in early January. We managed to get a good discount rate because we were there out of season. And being there out of season certainly did not affect the quality of the hotel. We ate in the restaurant on the first night which was delicious. Our room was fantastic with gorgeous views over the harbour. The room was impeccably clean and the service we recieved was fantastic. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. If you want somewhere to relax and chill out with the added bonus of a bit of luxury, then this is the hotel for you!

The Hotel Podewils was excellent. Close to town (and even closer to the brew-pub), clean and quiet, with really helpful staff. The breakfast was superb. When we come back to Gdansk we will definitely be staying at the Podewils. Much better than one of the characterless international chain hotels.

The hotel's location next to the canal and nominally priced shuttle is perfect for sightseeing jaunts and exploring restaurant options. The rooms are comfortable. The service, particularly, in the dining room is unobtrusive and very professional. Concierge/staff readily provided suggestions on sites, dining, transportation, etc. Of the three hotels that we stayed at on our recent Poland trip this was most memorable.

I would like to point out the behavior of the Podewils hotel manager who try her best to ruin our romantic night in Gdansk.
I choose this hotel to surprise my partner since it's a five-stars hotel with top services.
They had overbooking, and probably we being expedia clients and having booked only one night, they decided to moove us to the next hotel before our arrival. The manager didn't even let us seat and a person helped my boyfriend to bring the bags walking. After they practically throw us out we never heard from them again and in the next hotel (who looked wonderful but it was not at the same level), Hotel Krolewski, they gave us a room smelling smoke and denied to be a smooking room (there was an ashtray and no sign forbitting to smoke), the only thing they could do was giving me a spray that smell chemic soap to cover the smoke smell.
We had another bad surprise when we decide to relax anyway and lay down and enjoy our night of rest hogging each other. IT WAS NOT A DOUBLE BED but two beds next to each other with a cover hiding that.
No sign of interest from the Podewils hotel also the next day nor by e-mail in the next days.
Now that I'm home and the anger of the memory is not so strong I had the courage to check the level of the Krolewski hotel: it's a 3-stars hotel, so they even still from us.

A realy beautiful hotel in the heart of old-town Gdansk. The building is very well preserved and very stylish. Rooms are very spacious and our bathroom had a very big outside window making it very bright and with a nice view of the old port crane.
What was a real delight was having breakfast in the back yard just beside the river and with a nice view over the old city.
Would absolutely recomend this hotel.

Very charmy hotel well situated in Gdańsk. Our room had a beautiful view on the Old Town. Breakfast in the small garden was excellent however the fish served on diner was too dry (I think it was fried too long).
There was only one disadvantage of this hotel - many spiders in the room and in the bathroom when you left your windows open during the day.
