Myself and partner stayed at the Gryf for 3 nights and it is close to the Solidarity monument and square and next to the shipyard. Quite interesting to read and look at the memorial statues etc. It is not in the nicest area but excellent for the centre and train station. The rooms were nice and spacious but no brewing up facilities in room. There were tea and coffee available at a price downstairs in reception. The room had a separate area with sofa and tv and the bathroom was clean and nicely decorated but no complimentary toiletries. The beds were comfortable and extra quilts and pillows were in the room. The staff were pretty helpful and friendly. The hotel does do brekkie but we didnt have it. We chose this hotel because of the price and its location.
We got a taxi from the airport which we bartered for 50 zloty (approx £12). Coming back we found out we could get Bus B opposite the trainstation but it never turned up so again we paid 50 zloty back to airport. There is a taxi area near the bus stop.
If you turn left when you come out of the hotel then cross the road to the right just past the tram stop there is a Road to Freedom museum underground with a tank outside. Further along that road is a piece of the Berlin Wall and the wall that Lech Walensa allegedly climbed over. interesting if your into history. This is also the quickest way into the centre and the train station. It takes about 10-15mins walking. There are regular trams that stop outside the train station.
We took a day trip by train to Gdynnia and Sopot and got a day ticket which wasn't a lot, cant remember how much but worth it. We went to Gdynnia first thinking there was a beach but it was just a ship port and its a bit of a walk from the station. On the way back we stopped at Sopot. Absolutely gorgeous place, one street with shops and bars led to the lovely sandy beach and a huge pier. In the street is 'The Drunken House', a weird and wonderful shaped building. We are thinking of staying in Sopot when the warmer weather appears.
This hotel is not exactly luxurious but it is in an ideal location for sightseeing.
