The modern architecture of the Hanza Hotel Gdansk has been skilfully blended into the surrounding Old City houses. The hotel stylish elevation hides the 7 suites, 17 single rooms and 36 double rooms providing accommodation for 120 persons. The standard of the rooms satisfies even the most demanding of guests, while a restaurant, bar and fitness club, as well as conference rooms with high quality innovative equipment, are also placed at their disposal. Construction of the hotel was initiated in December 1995 and the hotel was opened during the Gdansk's millennium celebrations – on second May 1997.
After archaeological research had been conducted, it turned out that there was a fortified wall within the construction area. Therefore the architects, Szczepan Baum and Andrzej Kwiecinski, proposed an original solution for the elevation of the hotel, making reference to the historical buildings of the Old City in Gdansk. The solution was achieved and appreciated: in 1998 the hotel was granted an award by the Minister of Construction. Hanza Hotel Gdansk are pleased to have gained this official recognition, yet the appreciation of regular guests of the beauty and comfort of the hotel is most valuable of all.
