Gdansk is one of the most festive cities in Poland, with multiple areas in the city decorated with Christmas lights, trees and baubles.
The historic centre of Gdansk is Long Market, a pedestrian-only street lined with beautiful Hanseatic-era buildings.
In this guide, we recommend hotels near Gdansk Christmas Market, close to Long Market or on Granary Island, the location of the Christmas Ferris wheel.
Hotels near Gdansk Christmas Market
Gdansk old town is small and very walkable. Provided you stay somewhere fairly centre, away from the train station, and don’t have any mobility issues, you won’t have too many troubles getting around to see the main sights and Christmas events.
I suggest staying close to Long Market or on Granary Island, where you’ll have everything at your doorstep. Gdansk Christmas Market is located at Targ Węglowy.
Top PickPuro Gdansk Stare Miasto
Address: Stągiewna 26, Gdańsk, Poland
The Puro hotels are very popular boutique hotels in Poland and deservedly so. They are modern, clean, beautifully designed and the staff are welcoming and helpful. The Puro Gdansk is located on Granary Island, known as Wyspa Spichrzów in Polish. This small island is connected via a historic bridge to Long Market and the old town. The hotel is steps from the Christmas Ferris wheel and a 10-minute walk along Long Market to Gdansk Christmas market at Targ Węglowy.Check Availability

If my top pick doesn’t suit then I have a few other recommendations that you might like including an apartment and a budget hotel.
Address: ul. Mariacka 1, Gdansk
Gotyk House is an apartment hotel located on historic Mariacka street. This is a small street lined with amber shops and cute cafes. The hotel is in a unique building constructed in 1453 with a beautiful interior design that highlights its gothic history. The hotel is excellent value for money and the location is brilliant. A huge bonus with staying here is you can go to Drukarnia Cafe for your morning coffee or afternoon cake. It’s excellent! The hotel has an electric car charging station and they avoid single-use plastics.
Address: Długa 84/85, Gdańsk
Liberum is located directly on Long Market, the famous historic street in Gdansk city centre. You cannot get more central than this hotel and it is a 2-minute walk to Gdansk Christmas Market, which is located just around the corner. This area has many historic sights, including the Golden Gate and Neptune’s Fountain. The windows are double-glazed so you don’t need to worry about noise from the busy street below.
Apartament Długa Street
Address: Długa 50/51 m 4, Gdańsk, Poland
Also directly on Long Market are these wonderful apartments. You can choose a 1 or 2-bedroom apartment with room for up to 6 guests. This is one of the most highly rated apartments in Gdansk and the location near the Christmas market and other sights is perfect. I highly recommend this if you prefer an apartment’s space and privacy and want to be in the old town. This is a great budget option.
Hampton By Hilton Gdansk Old Town

If you’re looking for a budget hotel in Gdansk and don’t mind staying at a chain hotel, the Hampton by Hilton is a popular budget hotel that has large, clean rooms for an affordable price. The hotel has a gym if that’s of interest, and although the room includes breakfast, many great cafes in the area offer a delicious breakfast with excellent coffee. The Hampton is near Gdansk Christmas Market at Targ Węglowy as well as the markets and Ferris wheel on Granary Island.
