Kobza Haus

  ul. Stągiewna 2/3, Gdańsk ,   Old Town          (+48) 58 710 01 01     21 Jun 2022
Kobza, the Polish word for bagpipes, takes its name from a sculpture of a Scotsman hard at work playing the mournful instrument. Fortunately, the hotel itself is much cheerier than the statue of the Scot; the new four-story establishment features marble floors, a modern bar and airy lounge that will appeal to travellers looking for an air of class in their accommodations. The hotel’s 22 rooms, which vary from singles to full-blown apartments,have sparkling en-suite bathrooms, flat-screen televisions, safes and mini-bars worthy of business travellers and tourists with high expectations. Located just across the river from the noisier Old Town area, Kobza will easily be a hit with those who want to experience Gdańsk but not be kept awake by its revellers.

Kobza is not the actual Polish word for bagpipes, but for a special lute: the bent neck lute. Thus really to be seen at the sculpture in the gable niche.

Hello, the better English name for "kobza" is "bent neck lute": > . Best regards, Ulrich Schmidt

Hello, you are wrong with your explanatory information about the Kobza Haus, because you do not consider the etymology of the word "kobza". "kobza" used to be called the bagpipes, but nowadays "kobza" is used for a special kind of lute(knick-necked lute, German: Knickhalslaute). That is why your statement on the sculpture in the gable of the Kobza Haus is not correct. There is not a Scotsman with a bagpipe to be seen, but a non-Scotsman with a Knickhalslaute. You should therefore change your wrong information. As proof of my references, I attach these linked websites to: > > > > > > > >,18.6576396,3a,15y,174.82h,139.65t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sFPvFFKHs8qgPWF8-_vUfng!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 .

I had to read and re-read to find the possible comment that caused upset - and still am not sure of the offence! (and I have Scottish heritage). Hotel sounds nice

Dear Mr Henderson, I couldn't help but drop you a line to ask what you mean by your comment. While I have no problem placing any and all comments online, I would like to understand why you are branding Poland a country of racists because of a hotel review we've written. Regards, Gdansk In Your Pocket

I see from your advertisment that the Polish reputation for national predudice and racism is alive and well. We learn this from the many polish people in Scotland who often express racist views regarding asian and jewish people. I had thought previously this was just a myth...............but obviously not.Robert Henderson,Scotland.
