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.
