“Great hotel with a beautiful view across the river”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Hotel Królewski is located in a quiet location on an island in Motława river, just across the river from the old city centre of Gdańsk. It is about one kilometre's walk from the hotel to Długi Targ (Long Market). There is a small ferry that provides a shortcut across the river. The trip costs one złoty one way, but the ferry does not operate late in the evening.

The hotel building itself is very charming. It is an old red brick building which used to be a granary. My room was in the corner of the building on the river side and it provided a beautiful view to the medieval waterfront buildings on the opposite side of the river and the SS Sołdek. When I was in the room, I spent a considerable amount of time just admiring the view and watching traffic on the river.

My room was rather spacious, very clean, and nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable and provided a good night's sleep.

In the bathroom, the wash basin was annoyingly tiny, but, on the other hand, there was lots of space for toiletries. Showering was a bit unpleasant, because water temperature did not remain constant.

A wireless internet connection was available in the hotel, but there were often problems with the connection. There was fortunately a backup connection, as one corner of my room was just under the coverage of the public wireless network of the city of Gdańsk (but with a very weak signal).

The breakfast buffet was impressive, it provided a very good selection of items, and it was different every day. It was so ample and tasty that I could easily skip lunch. I also had dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The food was fine, prices were reasonable, and service was polite and attentive.

Free guest parking was available right in front of the hotel. I parked my motorbike on the pavement next to the entrance.

The staff were friendly and spoke good English.

Room prices were apparently elevated significantly during a European championship football tournament that took place in various locations in Poland and Ukraine. It was an unfortunate and unavoidable coincidence that my trip took place during such an event. With regular rates, this hotel would provide very good value for money; now I am obliged to rate the value only average.

This is probably the best deal in Danzig, right across from the city center on the other side of the channel.
Friendliest service, inexpensive rooms (75 USD a night for a doubleroom) and a great restaurant.
Some might not like the soft beds or that you will have to walk 500 meters to get to the main bridge leading back into the city.
We actually didn't mind.
There is also a ferry for the lazys.
If you don't eat at the fine cuisine restaurant while being here, it's just your own fault. Wow. Outstanding food for less than 100 PLN including wine and beer and appetizers (about 25 USD).

Situated on the other side of the river from the old town, connected by a ferry boat until 4:00pm or other wise a ten to fifteen minute walk. The view from the hotel is fantastic because of its location. The decor is a bit dark and dated but nevertheless pleasant. Definitely three and not four star but a very good three star. As mentioned in other reviews, the breakfast was good with a wide choice of central european staples.

I visited with a large but civilised party and was very disappointed to find the bar had closed at ten when some of us came back for a nightcap.

I would recommend it as a reasonably priced unique place to stay.

Nice and sort of cheap hotel if you look on late rooms or hotels.com - located 10 minutes walk from old town, very friendly staff . If this hotel was build in UK could be awarded with 4* because is way better than most of “fantastic” British hotels.
Absolutely amazing breakfast - I haven’t seen so many choices for long time - even in 5 star hotels – and thanks good there was no fat English cook breakfast that’s why in Poland they don’t have so many fat people.

Definitely would come back -. Only one issue – road works next to hotel – but I’m sure they will finish refurbishment before summer time.

We went to visit Gdansk in August 2011 and we spent 5 nights at the Hotel Krolewski.
This excellent hotel was an old brick granary erected in the 17th century located on Olowianka Island, a very nice and quiet place.
Staying on the island is a 15 min walk to the historic centre and the Crane, but there is also a very cheap ferry (1 zloty) running from 10 to 18 every day, which embarks just few steps from the hotel and brings you directly to the Crane on the other side of the river.
We were accomodated in a huge suite at the top floor, which consisted of: a very large living room with 3 sofas (2 of which convertible into beds), a table with 4 chairs and a large LCD TV set; a comfortable double-bed room with a second TV set; a large bathroom with bathtub.
The view on Motlawa River, the Crane and Soldek Ship & Museum was really fascinating and probably the best in town!
Buffet breakfast was very rich and tasty, with every kind of food you could wish, providing us with enough calories to skip lunch and go on walking till dinner time!
At the reception desk, Ms. Natalia was always very kind and helpful.
If we really want to find a small flaw, some noise arrived from the bathroom at late evening and early in the morning . I believe it came from the air system piping within the walls, probably coming from the restaurant kitchen at ground floor, but it was not very disturbing and it stopped at night.
All in all, an excellent choice with a very good value for money (we payed 140€/night for 3 persons in the suite). And you'll never forget the romantic view from the room... Absolutely recommended!!
