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 a now fake travel friend. Their tips didn’t come on time, and I was very very depressed, as they lied to me and disrespected my blogs, 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, one of my friend’s favourites. 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 “best view of a football stadium” and the Hostel Famil as “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.
3.Full Spa and Gym
4.Posh Breakfast Included
5.Cosiest Rooms in Starogard Gdański
6.Ten Pin Bowling

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 Jimmy, Rudolph, Dave 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, Slavic Girl
