the best of gdansk … this time (I)

My 5th visit to this beautiful and friendly city!

Neither the weather or my feet will place here because both behaved very badly.

Best pillows – (Pokoje Goscinne ASP) Basic, comfortable, clean … and friendly and helpful – with the most superb location. Staying above the rooftops of the Old town, only steps from the Długie Pobrzeże, the canal promenade.

In a listed building with an elevator on top of the Student House of the Academy of Fine Arts.

The first room I was allocated wasn’t bigger than a prison cell plus it was very cold. It was an apartment I had booked, but the other room was locked. So I asked why I was given the single bed … and 5 minutes later I had the key for the double bedroom. It was basically furnished with the same stunning rooftop view … and it was warm, plus the bed had a tick comfortable duvet. The bathroom is very spacious with a big walk-in shower and heat towel rail. The pantry was just a microwave, water kettle, and fridge.

The reception was there for the students but it also serviced the apartments, 5th and 6th floor (but only elevator to the 5th) … so helpful and friendly. I paid $124/£98/€113/1200SEK for 4 nights.

Best cake – (Bezkowa)  when I arrived it was very misty and drizzle … and after I had installed myself I just had to indulge myself in a good cup of coffee and some none calorie cake. Just opposite my apartment building “Cafe Oficyna” was calling on my attention.

There I have introduced to the “Bezkowa” … the most delicious cake I ever had and it was love at first sight and every afternoon I went back for more love. Their cakes are made in Sopot.

The cafe is located in the Oficyna Gdańska, which is a city publishing house publishing books about Gdańsk, founded by the Gdańsk Foundation.

Best breakfast – (Cafe Libertas) – which I had googled before take off. Only 2 minutes’ walk from my front door … and with very high reviews both with TripAdvisor and Google it was really a no-brainer. And everything said about this little cute is true. What a lovely place to start the day!!!!

What a lovely place to start the day!!!! And the food (taste and presentation) just superb plus the big and friendly smiles it was served with. Top Class!!!!!

I enjoyed all my breakfast at the cafe … and the staff was waiting for me with big smiles and they kept my table because it is a very busy little place. I eat through the whole menu … every morning I got a very tasty start. Only the little touch with the fresh white roses on the tables made it so much more special.

Best hairdresser – Svetlana at “Trendy Hair Fashion” on Pańska 9/11. I thought I had booked with them … but they couldn’t find my name with any of their 3 salons and when I showed them the SMS I got from their booking site … it meant that I was only registered with them. But Svetlana took care of me straight away, they gave me 2 minutes to collect my stuff from the cafe (Deker Patissererie & Cafe) next door where I had enjoyed a salt caramel cake and a very good coffee.

One of the best haircuts I ever had …. I just love Polish hairdressers … they are so meticulous and they always use new ideas. Like after she had cut my hair she washed the hair again … and as she finished off the styling she used the hairdryer as she sprayed it.

For the best event … the best burger … the best taxi driver … the best dinner and the best evening – do you have to wait on.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart”
