“Relax in Gdansk”
Reviewed 3 June 2008

We stayed at the Stara Karczma in the pleasant suburb of Oliwa. This is not a city centre hotel, but a cvery comfortable pension with spotless rooms. The staff were extremely helpful and polite. Breakfast was buffet style, and there was plenty of choice including a cooked breakfast option.
The hotel is very convenient for the airport and visiting Gydnia and Sopot. Although some way from the centre of Gdansk the city centre can easily be reached by a variety of trams.

  • Liked — Cleanliness and friendly atmosphere
  • Disliked — Some rooms can be a little noisy from traffic.

I stayed at this hotel in August 2006 and was surprised how nice it turned out to be. I am late with my review but wanted to post something after reading the other reviews for this property. The bathroom was spacious and very clean and the room was also a good size as well as very clean. The location is not too bad as it is across from a nice park which was good to walk through on the way to the train station. Gdansk was very crowded in August so I am glad that I did not stay in the heart of the old town. What sparked me to post a review here was the comment that the Mexican restaurant under the hotel was so good. I found the food to be inedible. Maybe the people who ate there do NOT know real Mexican food? It was disgusting and the place was full of flies and insects. It's in a basement so there must be other critters down there. If you appreciate real Mexican food do NOT eat under this hotel. It is awful. The nacho chips were clearly flavored doritos and the guacomole was from a container. If you like 7-11 nachos then dig in! Great Hotel and I would stay here again but would NEVER eat in that restaurant again...

Just returned from Poland having spent the last two nights of the holiday the Stara Karczma. We drove through the car park gates and were very pleasantly suprised to find a pretty court yard. The rooms are decorated in a mexican theme. They are spotless. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is buffet style but eggs and sausages are cooked to order. There is a Mexican restaurant underneath the hotel which is highly recommended. Big portions and you get 10% off as a guest of Stara Karczma. Trains run very regularly to Sopot Gydina and Gdansk city centre.Travelled with son 23 and daughter 20 . We all enjoyed our stay. We booked this hotel through the escape2poland website. If fact we booked the whole of our polish holiday through escape2poland . Piotr was very helpful.

Stayed a week in October 2005 at Stara Karczma. Attentive, polite staff and the rooms, en suite, are spotless. Polish buffet style breakfast with good choice of cold meats, cheeses, salads, bread and rolls. In charming area of Oliwa, a quiet suburb of Gdansk, just 10 minutes walk for direct trams to city centre.
