The unusually named Craft Beer Central Hotel is the latest old Danzig building to be cleaned up and redeveloped. Having stood empty for many years, the developers have spent a lot of time working with the city’s Conservator of Monuments to gain permission to create a hotel and brewery restaurant out of the remains of what had been a communist-era clinic (and prior to that the headquarters of the Iron & Steel Inspectorate – we’re still researching this part). The results are quite stunning. Housing just 39 rooms, considering how large the building is, the hotel has been built within the limitations of not been able to alter the size or shape of any of the rooms. The result is that you have a whole collection of large, high-ceilinged and utterly unique rooms to choose from plus there is a 2-storey apartment on the upper floors with windows offering views over the nearby old town. The Craft Beer part of the name is no doubt influenced by the downstairs in-house brewery and restaurant which operates under the name PG4 (a reference to the address at Podwale Grodzkie 4) and each of the rooms carries a beer related name (the apartment is called Jopen, recalling the name of the beer brewed by astronomer and brewer Johannes Hevelius). Considering the location, both overlooking a busy road and neighbouring the main train station, the rooms are remarkably quiet, no doubt helped by the modern triple-glassed windows. The results are needless to say very impressive.
