The hotel offers a unique Urban Beach concept with a swimming pool located on the roof of the building, with a glass ceiling , available all year round and a summer terrace, overviewing Motlawa River and The Old Town. High 5 Bar, situated next to the Urban Beach, is an ideal place in summer for our guests to taste exotic drinks and Mediterranean cuisine while in the wintertime it remains a panoramic, but still cameral place to spend some extraordinary time.

Hilton Gdansk is a modern hotel perfectly interacting with its historical surroundings. It creates a completely new quality by combining timeless architecture of Gdansk with paying exquisite attention to every detail. It is ideally reflected in our stylish décor, especially in the hotel atrium which is illuminated by Seaflower Chandelier. A spectacular light sculpture, composed of twenty five thousand handmade glass flowers and nine kilometers of optical fiber, never stops delighting our guests.

We truly believe that, by introducing a product of new quality, we managed to become one of the most popular hotels among world-class artists and politicians.
