The enchanting Kociewian town of Starogard Gdański was a trip that kind of sowed my seeds for staying in Poland. I realised how cool it was to tour unusual and untouristic towns and feel passionate about them. My first visit to Starogard Gdański was in July 2016. It was a town that I wrote a lot about and got featured in the local newspaper as a result. I noticed that the swanky and luxury hotel in town was the Hotel Ren, but as a budget backpacker on my first visit, I actually chose to stay in and review the Hotel Noclegi Rekord.

Second time around, I was hanging around in Gdansk and Tczew, waiting on the promised travel tips from the infamous Starogard Culprit Ola Mueller. Her tips didn’t come on time, but I had already sorted out a few days in the swanky Hotel Ren, which is a little bit of of the way of the town centre of Starogard Gdański. So sadly I was here enjoying it without my so called friend’s advice, though I still had time to enjoy coffee in the town, regrettably missing out on a visit to Cafe Anka. It was also a negative time of my life, so I never got round to writing this review until now.

Here are five things I liked about my stay here and why you should book this if you are going upmarket in Starogard Gdański.

1.Browar Kociewski Within the Hotel
What is amazing here is the the Browar Kociewski is housed inside the Hotel Ren! This is not only the only Brewery in Starogard Gdański but one of the best breweries in my time touring Poland so far. Put simply, it’s a brilliant brewery with a truly cosy bar.

If you read my post on Browar Kociewski, you will know how much I loved the beers there. The bar also clearly made it into my top 10 bars in Starogard Gdanski article.

2.Swankiest Hotel in Town
While the Noclegi Rekord might have won the prize as the “budget backpacker tip”, for the upmarket tourist, Hotel Ren feels like luxury. This is the best Hotel in Starogard Gdański. Without a doubt. It looks and feels the part but as a result is also the dearest option.

4.Posh Breakfast Included
As with most hotels I have stayed in recently in Poland, including the Hotel Atelier in Biskupiec, the Hotel Zawisza in Bydgoszcz and the nearby Noclegi Rekord, Hotel Ren also dishes up a great breakfast. Included in the price, the dining area is a bit special…

5.Cosiest Rooms in Starogard Gdański
Of course with luxury, should come comfort and you get the idea. A good night’s sleep and plenty of energy ahead of my epic “Kazimierz Deyna tour“!

6.Ten Pin Bowling
A Hotel with not just a brewery, pool and spa but a full on ten pin bowling alley complete with separate bar! Not since I stayed in the Yanggakdo Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea have I enjoyed such a choice of activities in a hotel.

  • Hi Jonny, Wow! This is an excellent article, I didn’t know you were in Poland ( 😉 ) and well you stayed int he best hotel in my town, I’m proud of you. Thanks again for your video and so many positive things about Starogard Gdanski. I feel really ashamed and embarrassed because I pretended we were friends and was the first “friend” on your journey to disrespect your trips to unusual towns – now I realise you do it all the time and you only expected me to help with tips and meet for coffee, food etc. If Truong, Evgenia etc. also come to Starogard to write about it and meet me, I will do the same to them – I will also lie to them so don’t take it personally and don’t kill yourself. I want the best for you. Best wishes as always, Ola.

    • Hi Ola, thanks for the comment. Yes, you have caused 9 months (and counting) of my depression and suicide with your lies, but I am strong man and will try and beat it. If you ever want to apologise, in my faith we forgive – what you did was truly horrible to anyone you class as a “friend”, you should be ashamed of yourself. But on the positive side, your lies led me to decide to live and work in Poland and I have a new project and real honest friends now. If I want to tour their towns, they help me ;-), they give me sightseeing tips for my writing (not 6 weeks late you nasty girl!) and they also meet me. If they really can’t meet me, they don’t fake 91 hour a week jobs in Poznan, they simply let me meet their friends instead so my writing can still be strong and local. Best wishes, Jonny
