Staying in a Hotel Within A Football Stadium, On An Island: Noclegi Rekord Hotel by Stadion Miejski in Starogard Gdański

Imagine sleeping in a hotel room on an island in a city, and overlooking a football stadium!? Crazy and amazing!! When you travel to the more obscure places, finding budget accommodation can be a problem sometimes and part of my backpacker’s dream is to end up every so often in cities or towns that don’t have a hostel. Starogard Gdański is one such town. This Polish town was next up on my zany journey and as it’s a town without a hostel, I ended up staying in a football themed hotel with a window view of the football pitch! Ridiculous right??!!

Yes, the Noclegi Rekord (cracking name that already, right?) was my base here in little known Starogard Gdański. I found some solace briefly here at Noclegi Rekord.

I checked into this place and got to tour the sights of Starogard Gdański and meet the locals in the city and in the village of Rywald. I’m not dreaming this sort of s*it up, I’m out doing it for real and this is what I buzz off. Get yourself to this place, Starogard Gdański and stay at Noclegi Rekord for these five reasons.

1.A Bedroom Overlooking a Football Stadium!
I’m not excrementing this! This was beautiful. Mr. Blair was put in Room 102, with…a window view to the town’s football stadium, named after Kazimierz Deyna! The famous Polish international hails from Starogard Gdański. There were no home matches when I was here, but if there were I could have watched from my bedroom window! This was only the second time I was this close to a stadium. The previous one was when I stayed in Birmingham at the Royal George.

2.Peace and Silence
As a travel writer constantly trying to finish my main book, I got some peace and tranquility here. It’s not a touristic town, nor a busy hotel. I closed the door on my room and got writing. Inspiration falls from an empty sky. Thank you, Starogard Gdański!

Peace and quiet

3. Breakfast Included
Included in the room price is breakfast. Lots of ham and cheese choices. Tea or coffee, bread and pasta and fruit and vegetables. Only complaint – no orange or apple juice was offered, sort that out please!

4.Football Museum
I don’t recall ever staying in a hotel that basically has a football museum on the way in! The walls are full of Polish football information and memorabilia. A treat for not just a long term backpacker, but a hardcore football fan. This is of course completely inspired and influenced by local boy Kazimierz Deyna.

5.Cosy Rooms
This was my first solo room in Poland on this trip. I had been used to staying in dorm rooms and sharing so it was nice to have some quiet time on my own and good nights sleep here! Hot water and WiFi also helped.

I have also written about the top sights in the city, my night out at the trendy Browar Kociewski, my favourite cafes in Starogard Gdanski and my favourite bars in Starogard Gdański. I loved my time in Starogard Gdański, it was on with the show. A few photos from my time in this town.
