Hampton By Hilton Gdansk Old Town

I spend a weekend for leisure in Gdańsk. The Hampton is perfectly located, was cheap compared to the other hotels and I had good experience with the brand in Europe, where Hampton are somewhat similar to Hilton Garden Inn.

Check In

Checkin was efficient. The agent was a trainee and needed a bit of guidance but nothing that was an issue. I was given a key as well as explained the breakfast location. 

I did OLCI and had a choice of 2 rooms only. I choosed one on the third floor in a corner, far from the elevators. This proved to be a good idea as the hotel was chocked full.

Room

3FB18DA1-3420-464D-92E2-47F5A26ACEE2.jpe23CD2E8B-1908-4E2E-AE40-B3FAF4D52C37.jpe1CCB3F98-35B0-4B7D-B7B6-4A7381F32A17.jpe

 

The room was large, with a very comfortable bed (although a bit high above the floor), a desk with a good chair and a TV.  There are plugs at the desk and at the bedside table.

There was tea and coffee making amenities, a safe and a closet, It does not show in the picture but there is a small corridor to enter the room. Only the corner room will have that design and space, the regular one are a bit smaller. 

Two bottles of water were waiting for me and as usual with Hampton, there is no mini bar in the room.

The bathroom was fine, a bit small compared to the room but that did not bother me. The amenities were standard. I liked the shower cubicle. I know this design is controversial here; put me in the camp of those who likes it. I did not flood my bathroom when I was showering. Good pressure and easy temperature control. The bathroom has its own temperature control, independent from the room AC.

The AC was the main negative point of this room. It was hard to get it to maintain the room at 19 degrees. Not sure whether there was central heating on (in July ??) or if the building isolation is poor but the room had a tendency to heat up. Note the external temperature was cool during my stay (15 degrees and raining).

Service

Service was good, the reception desk staff was very helpful and proactive and the barmaid really nice.

The breakfast was fairly good but with  several negative points. I was happy with the choices and quality for the hot dishes, bread and dairy. However the cold cuts and fruit choices was much more limited. The charcuterie was not very appealing and I suspect of very poor quality. There was not enough fruits also, not even a fruit salad.

Also the main major problem of breakfast is the design of the area. The buffet is accessible via a narrow entrance and is cramped when the hotel is full, as it was. There was not enough table either and the staff had to open an adjacent meeting room to accommodate for the amount of guests present.

 

There is gym on the second floor: no window and dark, small and with the minimum equipment.

Location

603C4F1C-85EC-48BB-8E94-42B3B9B121D3.jpe

 

The hotel is dead set in the middle of the old town, a few minutes away from the main gates and Artur court. The train station is eight minutes away by foot, on rugged and paved sidewalks. 

From the airport the bus leaves you at the train station. Taxis and Uber are a good alternative although the Uber pick up point at the hotel is not directly in front.

Heh, checked out from this hotel yesterday. I pretty much agree with everything in this review. Good property for a weekend in Gdansk. Breakfast room should be rearranged, although they did have a separate island for breads and cold cuts, which somehow people seemed to miss. Price/quality ratio was very good.

I similarly have been here recently. Hotel is in great location, price was good but breakfast was definitely the worse Hampton one I've ever had! To see my full review check it out here -
