This was a very pleasant stay. Our room was really very nice, spacious bathroom and a good bedroom. Our room was at the front of the hotel and, since it was warm, when the balcony door was open we had some noise from the road outside. The room was very clean and and tidy. The breakfast was very nice with a good choice and quality. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located some distance from the town centre. For us it was not a walkable distance but the tram stop was 5ish minutes walk from the hotel. Centre of Gdansk was 5 minutes on the tram and the service very frequent. Gdansk was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Best rooms at the rear of the hotel overlooking the garden.

The first impression was a bit scary as they do not speak English and we were trying to find out if they had a 24 hour reception desk on the phone, thankfully a Polish lady at the airport helped us out with that. Our plane was delayed by 5 hours, so we did not get there until 4am, and were still welcomed by a lovely, but obviously tired lady. The room was adorable and so cheap! We stayed for two nights(ish), the bed was comfortable, the bathroom modern and had everything you’d need in a room. It was a 30 minute walk from Old Town, as previously stated the area around is a little ‘sketchy’, but we walked through and never once felt unsafe so I think it is all perspective to be honest.

We wanted to eat at the hotel but did not have time, but it did look nice. Overall, we would stay there again if the hotel wasn’t in Gdańsk (not a great city).

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights in the end of December. We wanted a small get away and just somewhere to sleep away from the busy spots of town. Akme villa is located around 5/10 minutes away from the old town when taking the tram/taxi. It is on a side road in a slightly sketchy looking area, we did arrive at night, with a taxi driver claiming to be lost whilst running up the meter, but that’s another story.

At check in we were warmly welcomed, our reservation and details all there with no issues. We were given information about the area, shops and getting into town.
The room was spacious with a modern bathroom, the beds were two singles put together, no issues and to be expected to be honest. The room had basic amenities, tea and coffee facilities, TV, seats and table. Bathroom as stated was a bit more modern that the room itself, clean and nicely finished. The only downside with the room was that the seal on one of the windows was worn and that let quite a bit of the cold in/heat out. Apart from that and maybe some softer towels needed, the room was great value for what we paid.

It was nice to see that during our stay the rooms were made up every day. Akme villa is a small run “hotel”, this gives a nice and welcoming feel, friendly staff who can answer questions knowledgably and honestly about the area and things to do.

Being from the UK, but now living in Norway, I was slightly taken aback when I asked for a local shop and was presented with Tesco. It is a brisk 15/20 minute walk away, very nice to do during the day, can be a bit daunting at night when all dark. It was great to have a known branded shop to go to for supplies, all the things Tesco normally stock and more.

There is a local tram stop again 5 minutes away, very, very cheap to get a single ticket and travel into the old town, I paid cash at the automated ticked machine for the first few times, then resorted to using contactless, within 20 seconds a ticket bought and paid for, very simple to use and get around. Trams are modern and mostly on time from our experience. If I recall correctly there might have been 3 different services you can take from the local stop into the old town and then further afield. Journey time around 10 minutes at most.

We ate in the restaurant at Akme villa one evening when we were a little tired; the food was basic, but beer and wine cheap, so it all balances out.

Overall we really enjoyed our time in Gdansk and we felt welcomed whilst staying here and would have no issues about staying again if we returned. It is not 5* luxury and it doesn’t claim to be either, I think it is good value for the money that it is charging, you get a lot more value with the service they provide and we had no major issues throughout. Great place to have a base to go out and explore Gdansk.

The villa is located 2km form the center of the city.
The rooms doesn't have phones, doesn't have air conditioner! If you're staying on the first floor you can ear all the noises form the kitchen and reception.
In the room I got a very dirty cup.
Very poor room and facilities
I don't recommend this place at all!
After one night I moved to a different hotel!
