“Great hotel - great location”
Reviewed 9 November 2008

Wanted a nice hotel for a reasonable price and in a good location and thats exactly what i got. Booked it through staypoland and got a much better rate than that on the hotel's own website. It was £50 a night for a double room. The only other hotel in this price range and location seemed to be the Dom Muzyka (in the musical academy) but opted for this as it seemed to be slightly more central.

I definitely made the right choice as i actually ended up at the dom muzyka as thats the place to get the bus to Westerplatte (can't go directly from the centre). Was slightly further from the centre and over a big bridge.

As other previous reviews have mentioned the surroundings of the Aureus look a bit shabby and slightly run down (this is eastern europe though) but was only a couple of mins walk to the main centre and riverside. Felt perfectly safe walking back even in the dark.

Hotel it self was really clean and friendly and was a good spacious room. Looked very new. Breakfast was nice as well - plenty of choice on the buffet style. Modern safe in the room as well.

As well as being close to the main centre it was also close to the station (where the airport bus stops and train to sopot etc goes from).

If i ever go back to gdansk i will staying here.

This hotel is wonderful. When you arrive, the area may not appear to be the most attractive but it is very quiet and has the advantage of being about 10 minutes easy walk from the station and less than 10 from the old city, in fact I think that the location is one of the many good features of this hotel. The hotel staff speak English and are welcoming and very helpful. The rooms are superb; modern, well appointed and spotless with all that you need. Breakfast involves a huge choice to meet all tates and is really well presented. I stay in hotels most weeks of the year and this is one that really stands out, it has the quality, the service. the attention to detail and you know that it is very well managed. It was also great value for money and as a 3 star hotel far superior in quality to many 4 star hotels that I have stayed in. I have reccommended the Aureus already and will not hesitate to continue to do so, a real gem and a great find (thanks to previous Tripadvisor reviewers).

Gdansk by the way is a great city to visit with so much to see and do in the city itself and the surrounding area, certainly one of the best cities that I have visited and one to which I would like to return.

As a tip for anyone who likes good, proper beer, there is a great bar about 5 minutes walk away from the hotel, Degustatornia Dom Piwa on ul Grodzka. It is small, friendly, basic, with no music, no tv, just the sound of conversation and a great range of Polish and foreign beers. The sort of place that people of all ages go to for a drink and a chat . It is beer heaven, but beware of the strength of some Polish beers.

  • Liked — Quality, everything was done so well. Small and perfectly formed hotel.
  • Disliked — Can't fault it in any way

We had a brilliant stay in this hotel. Friendly staff, completely refurnished rooms, with great taste. The hotel is 4-5 minutes walk from Gdansk main attractions. I would definitly recommand this hotel for those staying in Gdansk.

Have just returned from an excellent stay in the Hotel Aureus. Do not be put off by the immediate surroundings - bear in mind Poland is still emerging from a communist state and these kind of major upheavals take a long long time. The hotel is immaculate and the staff are all helpful & friendly. With only a short walk to the main street & waterfront, i would definitely return again & again. Lovely fresh, clean bedrooms, bathroom & flat screen TV to boot. Breakfast very good also. Well Done to all the staff!

The hotel is 3*. I will tell you the pluses and the negatives so you can make up your own mind if this hotel is for you.
The location is in the Old Town - The negatives- very run down area. The positives - quiet and only a few minutes walk to centre.
The buildings the hotel are in have recently been refurbed. Therefore interior is new. Reception was bright, and staff very helpful offering advice if asked. The bar - what bar? Downstairs in the restaurant/breakfast room drinks were available. There were two stools to pull up to a serving counter. The were a limited selection of drinks available. Closing at 10pm. The staff serving here were always polite, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fair to good. Selection of teas or coffee, fruit drinks, pastries, cold meats, salads, cheeses, scrambled eggs, stir fry( which included bacon,sausages, peppers and onions) selection of bread rolls, jams, yogurt and cereals. Did not eat dinner here so unable to comment. We had a King sized room it was not big, and the bed was twin beds pushed together. I did query with reception just in case an error had been made but they checked and confirmed my room was correct, it was one of the larger rooms.
No extra pillows or blankets available in the room. No Tea/Coffee facilities. Limited toiletries. Shower but no bath. There was a safe that was free to use. A flat screen TV, a hairdryer and complimentary mineral water.
Overall opinion: a good clean 3* hotel. Dont be put off by the location, yes it is in a run down area but I felt very safe. It was only minutes walk to the centre/river walk. Take your own kettle to use in your room. All staff extremely helpful at all times.
Other reviews have mentioned that they thought the walls were thin as they could hear noise from adjoining rooms - when we stayed the hotel was full but I heard nothing. Should I return to Gdansk I would check out Hotel Hansa 4* just because of the location right on the waters edge (near the crane) but I would be quite happy to return to the Aureaus

Just retuned from Hotel Aureus, we stayed for three nights and thought the hotel was really great. Buffet breakfast included hot and cold and was plentiful. The biggest shower i have ever seen in a hotel. Although the walls werer a bit thin we could hear everyone returning to there rooms all thoughout the night. Reception staff were really helpful . An easy walk from the main station and really near to all of the sites. On both ends of the St there are small shops to buy localbeer and vodka.

This is excellent hotel. No doubts. I don't believe that it is 3* only. Its standard is 5* in my opinion.

I had superb room at the attic. Clean, large in modern style with huge bathroom.

Breakfast was absolutely fantastic. Full of delicious and fresh things.

Only think I don't like is location. It looks like in poorest place of Gdansk. Of course it is very close to Old Town, but I was little bit afraid to leave my car next to the hotel :) Luckily they have free guarded car park. (And free Internet connection in each room!!)

Staff were very helpful and well motivated. I had a terrible flu when I came in, so they gave me some precious advices.

Finally I would say that this is very good place to stay in. Especially in their reasonable prices. Enjoy! :)
