Visit Poland's beautiful Baltic coast for less with cheap hotels in Gdańsk.
Why book hotels in Gdańsk?
Rich in maritime (and military) history, and with a breathtakingly beautiful town centre, the Baltic port of Gdańsk is a European city well worth a spot on your travel bucket list. As it's in Poland, it's friendly on the wallet too. You can happily sip local beer in the bars of Long Market, located inside colourful restored buildings, before grabbing the obligatory selfie beside the town's iconic Neptune Statue. During the summer, people flock to Gdańsk beach hotels to soak in the sun and take a break from the bustle of the old town.
The best places to stay in Gdańsk

Gdańsk used to be a walled city, but now the old town is bordered by water: the Raduna canal, the Motlawa river and Motlawa canal mark the limits of the neighbourhood. If you want to get out of the tourist area, look at hotels in Wrzeszcz. This up-and-coming Gdańsk neighbourhood is home to the city's students, so there's great café culture (and lots of cheap accommodation options too).

Great town with a lot to offer for anyone that visits. I enjoyed walking the old the streets of Gdansk taking in the Amber stalls that line the cobbled streets.
it was one of the best times of my life. Poland is beautiful with beautiful people. Definatley would like to visit again.
Take the time to climb up St Mary's Church tower. It will take you time, but the view is amazing. Inside the church is an enormous astromical clock - worth taking a look at.
Such a beautiful city! If you ever make it to Poland, you must make it a point to include this in your journey! See you soon! Brad and Ewelina!
