I found the place online through Expedia. It turns out very nice small place. Quiet environment. Right at the tram station, very convenient. The staffs are very friendly and very helpful. Speaks good English. The breakfast buffet is a feast.
The Scandic is right next to the station (which is handy for a day trip to Malbork Castle) and is only a short distance from the old town. The rooms have air conditioning which was great in the summer heat and humidity it was over thirty degrees centigrade whilst we were in Poland.
We spent 10 days at this hotel. Only a crosswalk and a short path separates it from a nice, sandy beach. Right in front of the hotel were two bus lines to the metro station gdansk-oliwa. It is a good idea to note the times displayed at the bus station, since they both go around once a hour, only a few minutes apart from each other. The rooms were spacious and clean, with a decent flat screen tv. The breakfast was great, a buffet with scrambled eggs, two types of warm sausages, different kinds of ham, salads, herring, polish pancakes, cereal, boiled eggs topped with homemade mayo, etc. We'll probably be staying there again on our next summertime visit to gdansk.
We enjoyed the look of the place as well as the staff, especially the waitress in the bar area who was friendly and helpful. Even taught us a few Polish words! Good bar food as well. We were upgraded to the 16th floor which had a good View. Near the train station and convenient for sightseeing as well.
