The Krolewski is a modern hotel in an historic setting. In olden days the building was the Royal Granary - from post-war photos it is clear this was one of few buildings to survive the city centre bombings. Its recently been transformed into a stylish hotel but keeping as much of the old external feel as possible. A really nice place to spend time.
Good points - If you get a room facing over the river, you'll have the best view of Gdansk possible - make sure to ask because this makes all the difference. The rooms are smart and newly furnished. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is pretty good, and the dinner menu looked nice (though I didn't try it). WIFI is free.
Things to note - No safe in the room (there is a safe at Reception instead) and no tea/coffee facilities (!). Not much in the way of extra facilities like pool, gym, etc or business centre.
More importantly the hotel is sited across the river from the Old Town which means maybe a 10-15 min walk into town during winter. Not an unpleasant walk and there is lots of development going up there (especially the nice bar/restaurant at the new Hotel Gdansk) but less fun in the rain. In summer, there is a ferry across the river from the nearby Maritime Museum. Taxis seem to arrive very quickly when ordered. All in all, I wouldn't hold the location against the Krolewski - and you get the fantastic views into town as compensation.
