Accommodation

Gdańsk is currently developing its accommodation infrastructure as part of the city's preparations for the UEFA Euro 2012 football matches. New hotels are constantly being built, some of them in the immediate vicinity of the Philharmonic. The total target number of hotels for the city is 47.

The centre of Gdańsk hosts five dormitories, all of which can accommodate over 600 people. Six hostels located in the city centre can provide beds for over 400 people. These are in addition to the eight downtown hotels of varying standards.

Also, as Gdańsk is a popular tourist destination for Polish and foreign visitors, there is a well developed infrastructure of private flats and rooms for short-term sublet.
