Starogard Gdański is the capital of Poland’s Kociewie region and makes for an excellent weekend trip away from the nearby cities of Gdańsk, Tczew or Malbork. The city boasts a wide range of interesting curiosities, including a football stadium on an island, the best brewery in the region, a forest where Nazis killed innocent people and a pretty Old Town square. These are the best hotels in and around Starogard Gdański, ranging from budget hostels to swanky countryside venues.
On the outskirts of Starogard Gdański sits the Hotel Hubertus. This hotel is in a green, leafy area close to nature, but still close enough to the main sights of the town. It has a very cozy and idyllic café and restaurant with a more solemn and relaxed atmosphere. The Kociewie region attracts those who follow horse racing, and so Hotel Hubertus is the nearest hotel to the racecourse. It’s also fully licensed and has great food in a well-designed restaurant and bar. The hotel hosts weddings and conferences, and all rooms have a TV and Wi-Fi.
Hotel Bachus is situated on the corner of a roundabout on the drive into Starogard Gdanski. It is a medium-sized hotel with a large car park. The venue has a spa area and a large restaurant, which serves excellent Polish cuisine. There is also a bar and a snooker table. Rooms are basic yet cosy, and the hotel is well located for walking to the city centre. Wi-Fi is included, and the hotel has three floors, with the upper level suites being the more expensive rooms.
A good budget option in the town of Starogard Gdański is the Hostel Famil which is located in the downtown area, close to all amenities such as the Stary Rynek (Old Town Square) and the football and basketball stadiums. It is a self-catering option with only three apartments available, so for festivals and summer events, it is advisable to book early. Rooms and bathrooms are cosy, and there is Wi-Fi throughout this no-frills venue. It was the first hostel in the city and is run by a local family.
This is the best option for those wanting to stay in a typical Polish family-run bed and breakfast in a quiet part of Starogard Gdański. It’s also one of the cheapest options in the city and is located just 13 kilometres from an original Gutenberg Bible (housed in a museum in Pelplin). All rooms feature a flat-screen TV with satellite channels and a private bathroom. Free Wi-Fi is available, and every room includes a wardrobe. There is parking outside, and fridges and kettles can be made available.
