This hotel is probably not for everyone (will explain later), but I loved it. Went with family members -- jaded travellers all. Hotel was quite easy to make a booking online, and they communicated well via email to make sure the details were correct and to arrange an airport pickup at a reasonable price. Hotel itself is in a historic... More

We went to Gdansk and decided to stay the night. We found this small hotel and it completed our stay in this wonderful city. The staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms were absolutely clean. Breakfast was delicious. I've already recommended it to a friend.

The Podewils Hotel is the only 5 star hotel in Gdansk. It is right by the waterfront and a few minutes walk from the City Centre. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. It is a real gem and is highly recommended.

What a special place this is. It sits just across the water from the famous Gdansk waterfront , and affords brilliant views. You are in easy walking distance from the fabulous old town. The hotel is brilliant: elegant, civilised, beautiful. it is not unlike staying in a small stately home. The standards of service are exceptional, and the room was... More

From the moment we arrived, for a long weekend with some friends,the staff and service were excellent. This hotel is very good value, if it were in the UK would be at least twice the price. Poland is a good value destination. We choose the standard room which is up several flights of stairs, ok for us, but no lift,... More

We appriciate the kindness, profesionalism and courtesy of the hotel staff who served us breakfast to our room every morning. (We have been told that the dining room is under reconstruction). However this ment we were very limited in amount and choice of the food and since... More

My wife, my sister and her husband stayed at Podewils Hotel last weekend and we had a really nice time. I was concerned at the review below which states there was renovation underway at the Hotel but my concerns disappeared as soon as I arrived. We were greeted by wonderful, friendly, smiling staff and there was certainly no renovations underway.... More

We stayed at the hotel in January and it was lovely and cosy. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the views from across the river are gorgeous. We liked the fact it wasn't right in the middle but in walking distance for everywhere we wanted to go.

Im Sorry to say, that this hotel was a big disapointment!! The view was not that good. The room was dusty and the bathroom partially not clean. People could see in to the bathroom from the street. When we arrived they startet restoring the hotel, and the climate inside became terrible, and made me sick. They were still working at... More
