The Podewils is a lovely little hotel and just a few minutes walk from Gdansk's old town. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent, with a huge choice of food. The rooms were very comfortable and there was a good choice of television channels and languages. We are a couple and our bed was made... More

From the moment we arrived until we were waved off the whole experience was an absolute delight. The room that we had chosen - the Grand Podewils - was perfect, with the views exactly as described. Tulips and chocolates in the room on arrival, the bed turned down each evening and a weather forecast for the following day. The help... More

If I would describe my stay in Hotel Podewils in one word : Excellent ! Beautiful and romantic view from room 101 on the old harbour crane and the enlightened warehouse remnants on the Motlawa riverside. Fishermen waiting for a catch in the centre of the city...A view that makes you sigh each morning when you open the curtains. Splendid,... More

We had a long weekend in this beautiful hotel. Gorgeous room overlooking the river and the old town, staff were wonderful and the breakfast was delicious. Would highly recommend and would love to return one day. Gdansk is also a beautiful city with lots of gorgeous restaurants serving delicious food!

We had a long weekend in this historic and romantic hotel. The staff was very helpful and attentive and even arranged for us an early breakfast because we had an early morning flight. Highly recommended!

My travel Companion and I just have to say that we had an excellent stay in every way. The entire staff at the hotel gave an unforgettable impression and we were almost speechless at the quality we were faced with, not least dominating the food at the way it was presented and how it all tasted! We have nothing negative... More

While Podewils Hotel must have been a charming addition to the stock of Gdansk hotels when it was first restored and opened, it would be misleading to describe it as a five star hotel - more three star with a plus for character. It now feels a little tired, with the stair carpet worn in places and the bathroom fittings,... More
