Lovely old historic hotel. Rooms were very comfortable and air-conditioning actually worked. Small bathrooms but functional. Staff very attentive and helpful. Fantastic art deco restaurant and outdoor eating area by lovely fountain (did not care for the expensive breakfast buffet, but lunch and dinner were very good). Very convenient area for museums and trams/buses. Lots of great little restaurants all around. We had a room at the back and were not bothered by noise. Our kids had a lovely room overlooking the canal.
