Hotel Królewski – a combination of history and modernity
HOTEL KRÓLEWSKI is located in the center of Gdańsk, at Motława, on Wyspa Ołowianka. In the history of the city the Hotel’s localization perfectly reflects the importance of granaries situated there, as well as the power of water and boating.
Royal lineage, unique location
SPICHLERZ KRÓLEWSKI was built in the 17th century. It was designed by Abraham van den Block – a representative of the dynasty of Flemish origin of Gdansk craftsmen. The project was entrusted to Jan Strakowski – Gdańsk municipal architect and builder. The granary was built as a result of commitments of Gdańsk’s inhabitants to King Kazimierz Jagiellończyk. The construction was completed around 1621. Currently it is the best preserved granary on Wyspa Ołowianka and one of the few that has survived to modern times, engraving itself in the panorama of the city. By positioning parallel to the old cargo waterfront, HOTEL KRÓLEWSKI allows us to offer our guests a large number of rooms overlooking the Motława and the city’s historical center with numerous monuments of high architectural value, such as Gdański Żuraw (Gdańsk Crane) or even medieval churches being the city’s business card. Owing to the conducted renovation work, HOTEL KRÓLEWSKI is also an example of a monument, which was exposed in all its value, both in the exterior part as well as in its interiors. Carefully carried out adaptation work will allow our guests to feel the atmosphere of antiquity and monumentality of the facility, which is its undoubted advantage.
Royal lineage, unique location
The current historical building that houses HOTEL KRÓLEWSKI was founded in the early 17th century to commemorate an act of receiving privileges by the city from KING KAZIMIERZ JAGIELLOŃCZYK in 1454. Being a distinctive point in the island‘s landscape, the four-story granary was designed and built by the most eminent architects and sculptors of Gdańsk, including Abraham van den Blocke and Jan Strakowski. The building of SPICHLERZ KRÓLEWSKI stands out in the Island’s landscape because of its ridge system. The ground floor of the four-story building was available through a series of gates: five from the west, one to the south and the north and three to the east. During your stay, while enjoying its interiors in your free time, you will find preserved gates from the northern, southern and western side.
