Hotel chains such as Mariott, Hilton, Sheraton and Radisson are commonly known. We tend to choose a given brand because it offers a high standard of services and facilities.  As it turns out, not only premium brands can offer us a high-standard stay. We can by all means expect equal standard in boutique hotels, successfully competing on the market with big hotel chains. These small, specially designed hotels, also referred to as boutique hotels, have an aura of luxury. Their original interior design, attractive location and unconventional range of hospitality services attract many customers looking for something special. Below we present our  top 5 selection of such hotels in Tricity.

The main features of a boutique hotel, also called a lifestyle hotel are: the small-scale and intimate nature of the facility, unique atmosphere and very high standard – all those factors guarantee that even the most sophisticated needs and preferences of the guests can be fully met. The guests who will be most interested in the boutique hotel and in all it has to offer are those looking for peace and quiet, intimacy and premium category services.

Boutique hotels are often designed by renowned architects and designers and impress their guests with extraordinary and avant-garde decor.  The interiors are designed with great attention to detail. The rooms are often furnished with antique furniture pieces, works of art or with sophisticated designer decorative items. It is common for each room to be designed in a different style, which makes it unique. Smaller hotels do not label rooms with numbers, but rather with names referring to colours or other distinctive features of a given hotel.  Every boutique hotel has its own, individual style – that is how it stands out against the background of other hotels.

The buildings adapted for the purposes of boutique hotels are frequently old tenement houses, palaces, manors or castles. Boutique hotels tend to be smaller than traditional hotel chains, they have just several rooms, maximum several dozen, however, there are some exceptions to this rule.  The most famous boutique hotel in the world, Paramount Hotel in New York, designed by Philip Starck, has as many as 600 rooms.

Boutique hotels provide similar facilities to the ones offered by 5-star hotel chains, but we can expect a much faster and better standard of service. The services provided there are highly personalized, and the individual approach to every client is the key asset.

Quadrille Hotel in Gdynia: a fairy tale world inspired by „Alice in Wonderland”

This original boutique hotel has been present on the Tricity map for over 7 years. Although the hotel is located in a 18th-century palace, there are no signs of passing time. All elements of the interior design look as if they were bought yesterday. The building in which the hotel is situated has been revitalized. The authors of the concept are Anna and Martyna Górska, who created a fairy-tale place, inspired by “Alice in Wonderland”. One of the characters from the novel is present in the name of the hotel restaurant.

White Rabbit is an integral part of Quadrille and one of its  signature elements. Marcin Popielarz, the talented chef of White Rabbit is the author of the dishes on the restaurant’s menu, an example of the finest regional cuisine. Seasonal tasting menu is available in a vegan option as well.

The hotel has a stunning, bold design with a multitude of colours. The interior design is a combination of elaborate, diversified details, yet at the same time it all creates a harmonized whole. The motifs from stories in the novel are subtly highlighted in the entire facility, also in extravagantly decorated rooms. The historic space, visible underneath the old bricks is counterbalanced with the accessories of famous brands and premium, fancy furniture. Modern trends are noticeable in the entire style of this place. Similar wallpaper can be seen on the walls of The Buckingham Palace.

Quadrille Relais&Châteaux Hotel is located in Gdynia Orłowo on the 2-ha plot of land where you can find a fountain and many monuments of nature. The facility is divided into two parts: the 18th-century Palace with 12 deluxe rooms and the modern Outbuilding with 19 double rooms and an apartment. The Palace apartment and the rooms are named after the literary masters, evoking associations with their works. For instance, guests may stay in a room named after Gustave Flaubert, Scheherazade or Emily Brontë.

The Palace and The Outbuilding are connected by the underground corridor and share the SPA zone: swimming pool, jacuzzi, dry and steam sauna. In Quadrille SPA the guests can relax in one of the seven treatment rooms equipped with the high technology devices.

Our hotel is for adults only. All hotel guests or visitors to the SPA zone from Tricity must be at least 16 years old. This means that the hotel offers its guests the relaxing stay at its best. This place is free from noisy children and family buzz. The luxury here consists not only in a very high standard of the facilities and the service, but also in the blissful silence. To make our guests even more comfortable and peaceful, we make sure to manage the occupancy in the aquatic zone in such a way as to keep it up to 12 persons. And that is exactly what our guests appreciate. What is worth noting, each beauty treatment worth 150 PLN or more entitles you to use the swimming pool on the same day. It is our way to welcome and encourage local guests to visit us  – says Marta Dworak, PR & Marketing Director.

Podewils Hotel in Gdańsk: a baroque palace also known as “The House of the Black Boy”

The old, baroque palace on the Gdańsk riverbank, located in a picturesque, old part of the city on The Motlawa River is today one of the most beautiful hotels in the Pomerania region. From the windows of Podewils hotel there is a nice view of The Main City, the Yacht Marina and the historic Crane.

It was created twenty years ago as the first 5-star and boutique hotel in Gdańsk. Its distinctive features are English style of interior design and a cosy ambience. It has only 10 rooms. Each of them is designed in a different colour. The guests may choose one of the cosy, finely designed rooms where the antique decor is combined with the modern comfort.

In this location in 1728, one of the most talented stonemasons in Gdańsk, Krzysztof Strzycki, built a most beautiful house imitating the style of the suburban manor houses of the local patriarchs. For many years the works of this poor stonemason, not related to the families of the renowned craftsmen, were not appreciated by the inhabitants of Gdańsk and senior representatives of the guild, and Strzycki was even teased with the name “poor Negro”. Hurt by unjust opinions, he developed his talent in secret, in a rented granary where his stone works became more and more beautiful.  It was only after Strzycki had married a rich lady from Gdańsk when the citizens of Gdańsk accepted him as one of their own men.  This marriage opened the doors to his subsequent successful career. Already a man of means, he designed and supervised the construction of an elegant house, which brought him fame and recognition. The grudge Strzycki held against the craftsmen and citizens of Gdańsk was impersonated in the ‘logotype’ of the building, the image of a black boy on the portal.

In Podewils Hotel one an admire historic architecture and meticulously renovated interiors. For years people have admired the beautiful proportions of the baroque house and its ornaments: chubby cherubs, oval and rectangular windows tastefully incorporated into the structure of the building, the sphinxes placed on stone plinths, protecting the house, and a portal of outstanding beauty featuring the coat of arms of the Strzyckis family – the head of a black boy against a golden background.    That is why this stylish hotel, where the guests are welcomed by the concierge, is still called “The House of the Black Boy”.

The location, just next to the Marina, with a view over The Old Town, the historic Crane and The Motlawa River makes the stay here really unforgettable. However, the exceptional ambience of Podewils Hotel is created first and foremost by its personnel – fully focused on the needs and wishes of our guests. It is thanks to its staff that each year the hotel ranks first among all the hotels in Gdańsk. (Tripadvisor). Each guests is taken care of in the best possible way, with utmost discretion and respect for their privacy – tells us Magdalena Piotrowska, the hotel manager.
