“Good hotel that does the basics well”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

Can't complain at all. Room and bathroom were spotless, furniture good and staff friendly. If I had been on holiday, I would have really appreciated its closeness to the beach. One minor gripe is that the offering of instant coffee marred what was otherwise a very good breakfast.

Many thanks for good word about our hotel. We do our best to make our breakfast unforgetable  On breakfast buffet we propose 2 types of coffee: instant and natural. Next time we invite You to our coffee bar for other/additional types of coffee such as espresso or latte macchiato. Hope You have chance to come back to Sopot for holiday and stay in our hotel again. We warmly invite You.

Here you can experience a few attractions.
Villa Aqua is a modern hotel, placed in Sopot, one of the bigest tourist city on a Polish Coast. Far from the city center, but with a huge old nature park when you can walk to the sea through.
A room hotel modern but usual. Very good breakfest morning.
Direct connection by train to the Sopot and from there.
Good at the weekeng or for a short journey.
Near the hotel: swimming pool, road to the Gdańsk and Gdynia, parking spaces.
Far away nice town with a lot of taverns and restaurants, big cinema and other hotels.
You can walk all day with no sense of time, saving your money, to go back again here.

Although 2 stras only this hotel is a true hidden gem in the Tricity area. We've had our wedding reception there, our guests were spending couple nights at Villa Aqua also. Everybody was very pleased and surprised by the excellent staff manners, their language skills (english and german) etc. Hotel itself is very clean, food is 1st class... And the last but not least to mention is that the price range is very modest, you won't be able to get more for you money in this area as in Villa Aqua.

Reviewed 25 May 2008

I've now been to the Hotel Villa Aqua three times. The second and third times were in October 2007 and April 2008. What rothleytom says about air conditioning is true. I'd never noticed. Normally I go off season when its cold and air conditioning is not needed; I prefer to sleep with the windows open. Depending on what end of the hotel you are in you can about hear the trains passing, I like the sound of trains, water and sea at night. The first time I went there the outside areas of the Aqua Park were not finished so were not being used. My last trip was in April 2008 and it was still too cold for outdoor late night events. It might well be different in summer.

At weekends you do get groups of young people walking home from the beach front bars back to the Kamienny Potok area. They are boisterous, lively but not shouting obscene things in Polish (unlike UK young people who shout obscene things in English) – Although if you don’t know obscene words in Polish you would never know - trust me I know - they are a bit drunk but still very polite.

I live in the centre of a city and because of my work pattern often go to bed at 6.00am and am used to the noise of people and cars passing by, it might be different for you.

I'm still very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel; the room staff do an excellent job and all the public areas are very clean. The staff turnover seems very low as many of the staff that were there in the opening month are still there 18 months later which must say something positive about the management. The pretty dark haired Polish breakfast waitress is no longer there but she has been replaced with a young man (very handsome says my female partner).

Distance to the town centre is a very subjective thing, my calculation is it is 700m from the bottom of ul. Monte Casino along the beach walkway to the hotel. I don’t find that a problem, when I am on holiday I’m walking all day so 700m is nothing.

rothleytom says that lunch and dinner are limited, I’ve never had either there, there are so many places on the beach walkway or in Sopot that I’ve never bothered. Breakfast is still very good with a huge selection.

The prices are almost up to UK prices, so quite expensive by Polish standards, it is really more of a Polish business type clientele that they attract. As a modern hotel it has wheelchair accessible from street level.

At the moment I’m planning to return in October 2008. It depends on what you want in a hotel. They can not compete historically or elegantly with the Grand Hotel, who had some really nasty guests, (1939, but not of their own freewill) but they are looking at a different market.

The Sheraton which opens soon might change things. When I go to a foreign country I don’t want to stay in a multi-national hotel chain. I don’t want a Sheraton, Hilton, Ibis or Holiday Inn so maybe the Hotel Villa Aqua is for you too.

This is a new hotel next to the Aqua Park in Sopot. No problems during the day but the night club at the Aqua Park will keep you awake until 3 or 4 in the morning. Part of the hotel is less than 40 metres from the club entrance and in summer they don't close the doors. The management do not warn you of this. Great if you want to go to the club but not for families. The hotel is clean but they should have installed air conditioning, especially if you want to cut out the noise. Restaurant good for breakfast but limited choice for lunch/dinner. Short walk to beach but a long way from centre of Sopot.

Stayed August 2007
