Reviewed 28 July 2012

Stayed here whilst attending a Conference in the next door concert hall. Excellent staff and with a first rate breakfast included in room price an ideal location. Rooms clean perhaps could be considered dated but more than fit for my purpose no A/C. The bar closed at at ten prompt so beware if you want to drink the night away this is not the hotel for you. If in the area this would be my first choice.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor room with great view over town

I stayed 5 days at the Hotel Krolewski while attending a conference and was very pleased with the accommodations. It's in the former Royal Granary (one of nearly 300 granaries that reportedly were on the island in medieval days) and has been nicely restored and converted to a comfortable modern hotel. It has about 30 rooms and is adjacent to the Filharmonica concert and conference center. The rooms are reasonably priced and a very nice breakfast is provided in the modest riverside restaurant. The staff is pleasant and helpful, with good english language skills. Charming Old Gdansk is just across the river, via a small passenger ferry or a short walk to the bridge. I do like to catch stateside news when possible and was disappointed that the several advertised english language stations weren't working at all during my stay, despite several requests to remedy the situation. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay.

Hotel Królewski is located in a quiet location on an island in Motława river, just across the river from the old city centre of Gdańsk. It is about one kilometre's walk from the hotel to Długi Targ (Long Market). There is a small ferry that provides a shortcut across the river. The trip costs one złoty one way, but the ferry does not operate late in the evening.

The hotel building itself is very charming. It is an old red brick building which used to be a granary. My room was in the corner of the building on the river side and it provided a beautiful view to the medieval waterfront buildings on the opposite side of the river and the SS Sołdek. When I was in the room, I spent a considerable amount of time just admiring the view and watching traffic on the river.

My room was rather spacious, very clean, and nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable and provided a good night's sleep.

In the bathroom, the wash basin was annoyingly tiny, but, on the other hand, there was lots of space for toiletries. Showering was a bit unpleasant, because water temperature did not remain constant.

A wireless internet connection was available in the hotel, but there were often problems with the connection. There was fortunately a backup connection, as one corner of my room was just under the coverage of the public wireless network of the city of Gdańsk (but with a very weak signal).

The breakfast buffet was impressive, it provided a very good selection of items, and it was different every day. It was so ample and tasty that I could easily skip lunch. I also had dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The food was fine, prices were reasonable, and service was polite and attentive.

Free guest parking was available right in front of the hotel. I parked my motorbike on the pavement next to the entrance.

The staff were friendly and spoke good English.

Room prices were apparently elevated significantly during a European championship football tournament that took place in various locations in Poland and Ukraine. It was an unfortunate and unavoidable coincidence that my trip took place during such an event. With regular rates, this hotel would provide very good value for money; now I am obliged to rate the value only average.

This is probably the best deal in Danzig, right across from the city center on the other side of the channel.
Friendliest service, inexpensive rooms (75 USD a night for a doubleroom) and a great restaurant.
Some might not like the soft beds or that you will have to walk 500 meters to get to the main bridge leading back into the city.
We actually didn't mind.
There is also a ferry for the lazys.
If you don't eat at the fine cuisine restaurant while being here, it's just your own fault. Wow. Outstanding food for less than 100 PLN including wine and beer and appetizers (about 25 USD).

Situated on the other side of the river from the old town, connected by a ferry boat until 4:00pm or other wise a ten to fifteen minute walk. The view from the hotel is fantastic because of its location. The decor is a bit dark and dated but nevertheless pleasant. Definitely three and not four star but a very good three star. As mentioned in other reviews, the breakfast was good with a wide choice of central european staples.

I visited with a large but civilised party and was very disappointed to find the bar had closed at ten when some of us came back for a nightcap.

I would recommend it as a reasonably priced unique place to stay.

Nice and sort of cheap hotel if you look on late rooms or hotels.com - located 10 minutes walk from old town, very friendly staff . If this hotel was build in UK could be awarded with 4* because is way better than most of “fantastic” British hotels.
Absolutely amazing breakfast - I haven’t seen so many choices for long time - even in 5 star hotels – and thanks good there was no fat English cook breakfast that’s why in Poland they don’t have so many fat people.

Definitely would come back -. Only one issue – road works next to hotel – but I’m sure they will finish refurbishment before summer time.
