“Grand” by name and grand by nature. The Sofitel Grand Hotel in Sopot is the queen of hotels in the Tri-City area. There may be new pretenders to the throne but they can’t compete with the history and heritage of the Grand.
Built in 1927 to accommodate the high rollers from the elite of Polish and European society that would spend their weekends at the nearby casino the Grand hotel has always been revered as the most luxurious hotel in the area.
During the war Adolf Hitler stayed in the hotel whilst waiting news of Warsaw’s fall. Thankfully, the hotel escaped the war and subsequent war of liberation without much damage and it continued to prosper in the post war years hosting many famous celebrities and statesmen such as Charles de Gaulle, Fidel Castro, Greta Garbo, Marlena Dietrich and even Fidel Castro.
The hotel is located right on the white sandy beach next to Sopot’s famous wooden pier and even has it’s own private beach.
Front facing rooms have stunning views of the sea but there are also attractive gardens within the hotel grounds as well.
