The phrase 'Don't judge a book by its cover' is perfect for the Gryf. Located in one of the buildings which once housed the Lenin Shipyard workers' hospital, the outside and the surrounding land prompt many to ask if they have arrived at the right address, such is the contrast with the beautiful photos of the interior of the hotel on their website. Keep your nerve. Gryf offers a good choice of budget rooms for one, two or three people and facilities include in-room satellite television, surprisingly posh bathrooms and free wireless internet. The location, next to the Monument to the European Solidarity Centre and some rather daunting old tenements, means you are about 10 minutes' walk from the Main Train Station and about 20 from the old town. One of the best value for money hotels in the city.
