We stayed here last year after a cruise and this year stayed at the hotel pre and post cruise. It's a well run and very clean and comfortable hotel. Pre cruise we were in room 305. The room was long and narrow, not large but very comfortable and clean. Two windows in the bedroom overlooking the canal. The bathroom was quite large, it also had a large window and had been recently renovated, with a lovely large shower.
Post cruise we were in room 306. This room was more of a square shape and was quite a bit larger. It also overlooked the canal but only had one window. The bathroom was not as large, but still a nice size and also recently renovated but had no windows. I found in both rooms that the bathroom lighting could have been better. We were well supplied with towels and both showers had lots of water pressure. The beds were very comfortable...more on the hard side but that's what I like. The AC worked very well and was extremely quiet.
The staff were friendly, helpful and spoke English. The buffet breakfast was delicious with lots of variety. The location is excellent. Can't say enough good things about this hotel. Highly recommend it.
