I would give this hotel 210% Not only is it a quaint charming hotel in a great location but the staff were absolutely excellent. Now I am sure in the average day to day dealings with tourists they may seem pleasant but when you really need them that is when you get to see just how good they are. when you read the rest of the story you will see what I mean.
there were 4 of us, 2 couples in 2 double rooms. on the first night we were there we went to a few bars my wife left early and went back to the hotel and me and the other 2 members of our party got inadvertently incarcerated. Basically in a local bar our vodka shots were spiked with alcohol and the polish police decided that instead of helping us find our way back to the hotel it would be better to pepper spray us steal all our money and lock us up for the night without letting us make any phone calls. My wife woke the next day to find all 3 of us missing and was in hysterics. we were all split up and at 3pm the next day my brother in law was released, when he explained he did not know where we were my wife thought the worst.
Now at this point the girls on reception must have been thinking oh no more stupid English drunks and they would have had a damn fine point because that is exactly what we were, but instead of being judgemental or off hand they went the extra mile to console my wife and do everything they could to help and call all the hospitals and police stations until they found us.
We stayed a further 2 days and considering what they must of thought of us they could not have been more professional and helpful.there were actually 2 different girls on shifts and they were both exactly the same.
if we missed breakfast they offered to bring it to our rooms later.
In summary 100% for the hotel +110% for the staff
If the owner of this hotel reads this then I hope they recognise what an asset to this hotel they are.

I expect to be judged by readers of this review and you are probably right but also consider that even faced with english drunken idiots the staff at this hotel did not judge us and remained professional and charming throughout the remainder of our stay.

oh and as a side note try not to get pepper spray in your eyes because it really stings.

This hotel is in the OLDEST building in Gdansk on a picturesque street - a stones throw from a huge Cathedral. Beautifully restored. Very Clean. Staff is wonderful, and there is a nice little Museum under the hotel - admission included with your stay. They bring breakfast to your room - and there is lots of it. This hotel was one of the highlights of our trip.

Room Tip: No Elevator - 3 floors.

Recently we returned from a very enjoyable stay at the Gotyk House in Gdansk. I cannot enthuse enough about this lovely old house set in a picturesque area of beautiful Gdansk. Three of us shared a very comfortable room with all the facilities one would need. Very friendly and attentive staff...all the girls could not do enough for you! Very good value indeed with a substantial breakfast included in the price! Excellent value for money, we stayed for four nights.
The location of the Gotyk House is ideal for visiting the numerous attractions of Gdansk and further afield to Westerplatte,Sopot and Gdynia. We booked the stay directly with The Gotyk House and the email replies were prompt and very helpful indeed. A cab was arranged by Gotyk House for us at the airport on our arrival and also booked for our return journey. Lovely places to visit, eat and drink and in our opinion inexpensive !!! Well done Gotyk House !!! 10/10 from us !!! DOBRE !!!!!! Jools, Barbara & Gemma Zauscinski

Room Tip: its only a small property, seven rooms I think, so maybe an email to the staff with any particular r...

Oldest house in Gdansk. Copernicus wrote his theory on the planets here. A nice little museum underneath the hotel. Very small boutique hotel dripping with character and atmosphere.. Girls here are wonderful and friendly and will make a cuppa for you when you want it and a nice breakfast we ate on the area overlooking the street with the Amber sellers. One of the most beautiful places to see in the world We have been to nearly 60 countries around the world and Poland and in Particular Gdansk and Gotyk house are amongst our favorites.

Room Tip: buy Amber from this street as best prices and quality.

I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Gotyk House. It is in the oldest building in Gdańsk. Copernicus stayed there. Those two things right there make it a cool place to stay. But the fact they have made the oldest building such a lovely and comfortable place to stay makes it a really cool place to stay!

It is situated on a pedestrian only street, which keeps it fairly quiet. It is very centrally located for most everything in Gdańsk. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. My bed was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and hospitable. The room price is very reasonable for what you get in return.

The breakfast provided in the morning was enjoyable and sufficient. You can request a pot of coffee with breakfast, which is better if you need more than a cup in the morning. It was cold weather when we were there, but our basement room has a heated tile floor. We requested tea every night, which was brought to our room for us to enjoy, all without charge!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there!

Room Tip: Don't be afraid of the basement room. It is not cold, damp, or dark. You have your own entrance...

Truly perfectly located ! In midst of reconstructed Old Town. Several centuries old home converted into delightful B and B. It's small and cozy. Wonderfully clean and attended by several ever present young Polish ladies. Do not miss the historical museum located in basement which details the presumed escapades of a universe altering mind and man, who stayed here rather romantically and secretly ! And don't skip a visit to Westerplatte. Unbelieveable the terrors of World War 2 could begin in a lovely place such as this......

We arrived late after having a very long day that began with trouble with a hire car pick up. Our vehicle was not equipped with a GPS even though we ordered one. The lovely girls at Gotyk House (Dorothy, Patricia and Anja) were all fantastic. Dorothy met us and after making us a cup of tea assured us they would endeavour to solve our problem. Sure enough as soon as I came downstairs the next morning Patricia was aware of the situation. She took the details we had and after a lovely day sightseeing we arrived home to be presented with the GPS. The following morning Anja gave us some great tips of places to see in the Masurian lakes, our next destination. Service with a smile!
We had a cosy room with sloping ceilings in a house that oozed history.
We ate our breakfast on the little terrace because the breakfast room was full. This was fine for us because the weather was suitable. The only negative may be that breakfast is staggered because of the space but it is offered as room service if the time doesn't suit.
Another bonus is that for visitors with a car, the staff of Gotyk House organise a permit to drive and park within the old town for a small fee. Very helpful.
Thanks again.
