In summer 2016, I stayed in Poland for a prolonged period and this was a special time in my life. It was the first time I had spent longer than a month in Eastern Europe in the same country. I spent my first month in Pomerania exclusively and loved it there, I used Gdansk as my base. As well as touring Gdynia, Sopot, Pelplin, Malbork, Starogard Gdański, Gdańsk and Łeba, I ended up in the town of Tczew! Where to stay in Tczew? In the best hotel in town of course, and the best hotel on my travels since I was in Gambia! I stayed at the Link Hotel in Tczew.
After checking into the Link Hotel, I was handed the keys to my room and had a nice relaxed time here. If you ever make it to the gorgeous town of Tczew in Poland, be sure to check into the Link. I stayed in Room 107 and loved these five things about the hotel.
1.Pleasant, welcoming staff
It’s becoming a trait in Poland that the people have genuine warm hearts, real smiles and absolutely care about you. I’ve been helped a lot so far in Poland and especially now I was learning Polish in Gdańsk. I was looked after by Karolina, Agnieszka, Wojciech and Alicja.
My room was air conditioned, comfortable bed, tea and coffee included, fast Wi-Fi, a desk, a TV (didn’t have time to use it), and a great bathroom.
I awoke in this tranquil location, downstairs for my healthy breakfast. A range of cereals and yoghurt. Good tea and coffee. A choice of juices. Cheese, salad, meat and some tasty hot Polish sausages!
4.Unusual Location – Cool Sights
On a main road on the edge of town, it felt like a really unusual location here at the Link Hotel. I walked out here from the train station, and actually passed by some of the sights on route including a huge church, the town emblem, some nice wall murals and even a dreaded DickMonalds!
5.Bicycles to Tour the Town!
I took advantage of the bicycle hire at the hotel to tour the town of Tczew! I was able to see a lot of the sights in a short length of time and I wrote passionately about it. I was later featured in the local newspapers in both Tczew and in Starogard Gdanski. My Tczew article also appears online here.
There is a cool windmill here in Tczew, and also sadly the bridge where World War II really began, somethign which has also featured on my Nigdy Więcej Wojny (Never More War) series.
Finally my thanks to Karolina, who really met me but didn’t want to be shown in the photo below! Thanks for your travel tips for Tczew, Gdansk and Holy Pelplin!
