We recently stayed as a group of 4 couples at the Pica Paca hotel in Gdansk and just before we travelled we read some very disturbing reports about the hotel on Tripadvisor, so we were quite concerned when we arrived. However the staff could not have been more helpful and made our stay very memorable. The rooms and location were perfect and we all had a great time, so we would just like to add this report to put the other side of the story

this was the 2nd visit to this boutique hotel after a 3 year gap. We had read negative reviews so were slightly worried that the standard may have slipped. We need not have been concerned- this is a lovely little hotel where the staff are unobtrusive but available to cater for every need. The rooms are simple but stylish and extremely comfortable. Breakfast is a glorious buffet which will set you up for the day. Location could not be better and we will certainly return again.We have only visited Gdansk in November when the town is quiet so I accept things may be different during busy summer months but we feel the Pica Paca is a perfect base to explore our favourite Polish city.

Room Tip: stairs could be difficult for some travellers but on the 3rd floor there is easy access to the fantastic terrace which is an actual raised walkway/street between all the neighbouring buildings. Hard to explain but has to be seen to be believed!

This hotel obviously doesnt keep track on bookings they confirm. In hotel business overbookings can happen every now and then, but it seems to be a constant habbit with this one. A confirmed booking for a three bedroom apartment in three floors with a roof terrace for 6 adults, turned out to be a small two bedroom with one extra bed.

The management didnt bother to show up to deal with their mistake with us customers, but gave orders to the front desk staff by phone and ordered them to make ridiculous excuses as why the apartment is not available.

The 2-bedroom apartment itself was halfway decent with cheap IKEA furnishing, miscellaneous tableware and a bathroom that had already seen its better days.

And dont expect the room to be cleaned in this "hotel", "its not included" but "you can take the carbage down to the reception if you want".

Save yourselves some trouble and book any other hotel in the beautiful city of Gdansk!

Upon arrival, the lady in the reception met us in the taxi, saying that they've overbooked the hotel, and asked us to stay in different hotel close to the freeway 500 meters further away from the Old Town. She claimed that it was our fault, since I've e-mailed them the day before and asked if we could keep 3 out of 4 rooms for 1 more night.

What she said made no sense, since our booking for the first 2 nights should be valid anyway. She also had the availabily of rooms displaying on her computer, and it was clear to me that they had plenty of rooms available. When we pointed this out, she was blushing, and quicly closed the laptop.

My guess is that they refused to accomodate us, since we were 7 boys travelling together.

She didn't want to give in, but we ended up agreeing to stay in Novotel close by instead of the rather dodgy hotel they wanted to send us to.

We had booked a room here during the Euro 2012 tournament a few months in advance and prepaid to secure the booking.

However, when we got here we were told that we had to stay in an apartment in the old town instead as they were overbooked. The staff were extremely apologetic but we did have to wait about 2 hours until the apartment would be ready.

When it was, we had to drag our cases through the busy streets and found ourselves in a very run down looking block and our apartment was situated right at the top of the building. After I managed to haul my case up there, we were shown into a one room flat that looked like someone's private accommodation.

Although the apartment was comfortable, it was not what we booked and we were not happy staying there.

I think I would warn anyone intending to stay here to ensure they get what they pay for.

Not impressed at all...!

Unfortunately I can't comment on the actual Pica Paca apartments as we didn't stay there after all....
