Eat, Sleep, Drink


Budget: A no-frills Polish meal costs about £2 at Neptun. This is one of the few remaining communist-era ‘Milk Bars’  which used to be state-subsidised canteens.

Neptun is still a great place for a cheap feed, so is often full of backpackers as well as pensioners.

Midrange: On Sopot’s pier, with a great sea view, the ‘meat feast’ platter (including pork neck) in Restauracja Laguna Smaku serves five people for only £6 each.

Luxury: Microbrewery Brovarnia serves up fresh salmon with chive sauce on spinach for £9.80 in beer heaven.

Cosy and relaxed, it’s housed in the historical granary by the Motława river in Gdansk.


Budget: A cheeky vodka chaser is a retro-price 80p in communist-nostalgia bar Notocyk at Chlebnicka 2.

Midrange: A wide selection of local beers cost about £1.60 each in the casual Amsterdam Bar.

Situated just off Dluga street (the Old Town’s main street) it has outdoor seating, perfect for a spot of people-watching. (Garbary 6/7, tel. +48 58 717 29 39)

Luxury: Friendly staff, a late licence and cocktails for £3.35: lap it up at Buddha Lounge where trendy exposed brickwork and chic decor make it a hotspot for Gdansk’s smarter set.


Budget: Overlooking the river and by the main drag, dorm beds in the Old Town start at £5.90pppn at the Riverside Hostel (pictured above), which has a reputation for friendly, helpful staff.

Midrange: Plain, but this hotel does the job: the Novotel Centrum is central, functional and popular with coach groups. Double rooms from £43.50pn.

Luxury: Yacht-themed premium double rooms go from £124pn above brew pub Brovarnia in the swanky Hotel Gdansk.

This upmarket spot has a renowned spa onsite, too, for when you really feel like treating yourself.
