Grand Hotel

Sopot, Poland

Grand Hotel in Sopot, Poland was originally built in 1924–1927 at a cost of 20 million Danzig gulden as the most refined hotel in Sopot - the Kasino Hotel. As the Sofitel Grand Hotel, it is located at the seaside of the Gdansk Bay, in the heart of the town and next to the beach. Sofitel Grand Hotel has been totally refurbished during the last years, the classical atmosphere from the earlier period is still present and the hotel is now both classical, and modern. In 2007 it was decided to open Grand Spa by Algotherm, this to maintain the history of Sopot as a Spa resort.

A.D 1927. It’s an architectural gem. Very posh. Very distinguish. Very luxury. Five-star Grand Hotel Sopot (current: Sofitel Grand Sopot) located on the seashore which is the charming part of Sopot town. Grand Hotel was, and still is the great witness to an interesting, and complicated history of the 20th century. He was waking up with the sunrise, and he was falling asleep with the sound of the sea waves. Acted as a supported character in several movies. He welcomed many distinguished guests like politicians, movie stars, singers, crowned heads and many, many ordinary holidaymakers. Unfortunately, I was not a hotel guest, but I admired his fabulous architecture in September 2020.

Great hotel, amazing seaside view, service at 5*. But parking in the area - good luck if you find some space at a good price.

Hotel bar at the beach serves very bad coctails. My strawberry margarita was worst I ever had. Tasted like water with some frozen strawberries. Big ice pieces in margarita not acceptable.

This hotel is exactly what one would expect from a Sofitel hotel and excellent for your business stay. The staff is super polite and incredibly helpful. You will appreciate the cleanliness of the venue although some aisles may carry a somewhat dull scent. The breakfast is varied and to die for (I counted 12!! different freshly pressed juices). The restaurant looks out over the pier and beach. Within a 3 minute walk you're in the center of Sopot. Happy to come back here every time! Interesting fact, Google: "famous guests Grand hotel Sopot"

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
