I selected this hotel thanks to Trip Advisor reviews and am pleased to say we weren't disappointed. That I also got a deal on the rooms at the height of the tourist season didn't hurt either!
The hotel is elegant, situated on the banks of a canal (of course!) and right in the heart of the city. Rooms (and bathroom) were beautifully and modernly decorated, clean as a whistle, and spacious, all things considered. We travelled with my parents, who got upgraded to a room with a balcony overlooking the fountain out front - lucky! Their room was also slightly larger than ours, but over all, the same style and amenities.
Nearby are tens of restaurants and you're within walking distance of the museum district, so handy location.
