We definetely enjoyed looking out our window onto the water and seeing a Russian Sub from our room. The rooms are tiny but you have to remember, you're staying on a boat! We would have done it again for the novelty but if we visit again we will stay somewhere that doesn't require taking a ferry everytime you want to get over to the mainland area. The ferry's run about every 30 minutes but after midnight you have to take a ferry to a different spot and the hotel shuttle comes to pick you up from there (you just call them when you get there). It wasn't a big deal just a bit of a time inconvenience. The breakfast bar here was good and always full. The front desk even made a point to bring us coffee the morning we left and were waiting for the shuttle!
