“Nice hotel near shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Perfect for when you want to stay close to the shopping centres and train station. Good service and a nice breakfast. Free wifi for all three days we stayed there. We could have the room until 7pm for a small amount.

Dear Johshh,

Thank you very much for your review!

I'm glad that you find our hotel a positive place to stay. I see that there were some cleaniness issues during your stay. I apologize for that in advance, but could you please let me know what hapenned that left us with only 3/5 mark in that?

And don't worry about our rooms interior, everything will start moving forward starting with TV's this year.

If you have any further comments you want to share please send me an email at:

Best regards,
Michal

I have just returned from a 4 night stay here. I have been to Gdansk many times before but have never stayed at the Scandic. I picked it because of its central location and the fact that it had a free cancellation option. I felt very relaxed from the moment I walked in the hotel as the young man on the check-in desk was very friendly and efficient. The room was spotless and had good facilities such as kettle and mini bar, ironing bard and iron, hairdryer etc. The bed was super comfy. I had a drink in the bar and felt at ease. I believe the restaurant is very good but I did not eat there. I felt that £10 per day for breakfast was a bit much and ate good breakfasts at a local bakery. I would definitely stay there again as it was a busy place but had no noise in the corridors at night and it was possible to have a very good sleep there!

not much to complain about, nothing luxurious, looks like a 3 star hotel or less ( the inside of rooms) but was nice and not so expensive. we spend only 3-4 hours there asked for discount but didn't get any.

Dear Al C,

Thank you very much for your review though it doesn't say much about us. I can only assure you, we're much much better than every 3* hotel you can find.

This hotel is located just across the main street from the railway station, very convenient since Bus 210 stops here on the way to and from the airport. This bus costs less than an Euro and the trip takes 40-50 minutes. When getting the hotel in view, don’t be scared of the old soviet style building: Inside it is a very well maintained, and as most hotels in Poland the accommodation price is acceptable, but the breakfast is more expensive than elsewhere in town. We stayed in a two rooms junior suite and found this very acceptable! We asked for a room “away from the elevator” and got it: Just look at the picture of the corridor.

Conclusion: If you look for a historic hotel, go somewhere else! But if you need a quality place to sleep and not more then 10-15 minutes’ walk to Old Town, this one is a good alternative

Room Tip: The suites are at the top floor. There is very little trafic around the hotel, especially on the sid...

Dear Senior Globetrotter,

Thank you very much for your review. I'm glad that you liked our hotel so much.

As you mentioned, the outside might not seem so spectacular, but it's the inside that really matters:) I've seen your pictures and have some news, we've recently exchanged all of our TV sets, so our rooms are even better now! We knew it before, but to make sure I've checked it again today, and our breakfast is one of the cheapest of all in 4 and 5 * hotels in Gdańsk (even though you can choose from over 100 products).

I hope to see you in our hotel again some time soon!

Best regards,
Michal Ziegert

The location is perfect - very close to city center and railway station.
Minus - we were not allowed for 2 hours later check-out ... In Scandic Lahti later check-out wasn't a problem.
Also window of our room was to the street, because of good quality of window it was silent, but when we opened it ... all soundds from busy street were ours.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with windows to the inner yard and not to the busy street.

Everything was perfect. First location. Just opposite to the train station. So no troubles with getting to the hotel as we were coming by train. Also at the entrance to the old town, which is very charming and small enough to walk. Second hotel itself: very helpful staff, huge breakfast, spacious rooms. Finally the price. Suprisingly low as for such a high standard

The reception staff is super friendly and helpful, the room was lovely and spotless (I was in room 223) with a nicely equipped minibar and affordable prices, the breakfast was great and they didn't hurry us even though we were late to finish. The location is perfect because it is right next to the train station. The prices are nice too. I will definitely want to stay there next time I am in Gdansk.
