I booked my trip to Gdańsk within a few days of the UK Government relaxing the requirements for testing and quarantine once you arrive back in England. This gave me a couple of weeks to sort out my flights and accommodation. Here is my review of Liberum Residence, Gdańsk.
My original idea was to travel to Poznan. Doing this trip solo, I wanted to do it as cheap as possible. After a little planning, I had chosen flights with WIZZ Air from Doncaster-Sheffield airport.
I had never flown with WIZZ or from Doncaster before. The airport is only 40 minutes from where we live, so this made it easier to get to.
I booked a stay in the Liberum Residence through booking.com. The reviews of this hotel were great, and I loved the style and decor. I went ‘room only’ for this stay, knowing how cheap it was to eat out in Poland from visiting Kraków in November. I knew I would be straight out for coffee and donuts for breakfast and would eat at local restaurants during my stay. If you are a fan of donuts, then you must have them from Dobra Pączkarnia, their shops are in several Polish cities.
The receptionist informed me that even though I hadn’t opted for breakfast, I could eat in the restaurant and pay as and when needed.
The Perfect Location
The hotel is at the top of the historic Długa street, right next to the (Złota Brama) Golden Gate and a short walk from Long Market. This makes it perfect for exploring Gdańsk by foot. The Forum shopping center is also a short walk from the hotel.
I arrived late into Gdańsk, my flight landed just after 1am. After spending the evening at the airport, then the late flight and transfer to the hotel, it was safe to say I was pretty tired.
The taxi dropped me off just outside of the Golden Gate, and from here it was a short walk to the hotel.
I pushed the button on the intercom outside and they buzzed me in to the reception. The place already felt welcoming. Having reserved a single room, the friendly receptionist said that they had upgraded me to a double room for free. That impressed me.
I checked in and made my way up three flights of stairs to my room. There is a lift, but I enjoy getting the extra steps in.
I opened the door to my room with a small keycard. It did not disappoint me with what I saw. A very warm, cosy room. Clean, with a large double bed, small desk area with tea and coffee making facilities.
There was a mini-fridge, a safe deposit box, a small flat-screen TV and ample space for my clothes.
The bathroom was bright and clean, with a good sized shower, hair dryer and the usual free toiletries, a large mirror and a nice warm towel rail.
I was thrilled with my choice of hotel and I knew I would be very comfortable during my stay here in Gdańsk.
