On the whole we greatly enjoyed our 7-night stay in July 2013. At first we didn't get a canal view room either, but could change to one after 3 nights, which we appreciated. Yes, the shower IS basic, as Laurelsan wrote, and a refrigerator (which seems to be a standard fixture in hôtels we usually stay in, at similar prices) would be advantageous in the hight of summer. There is no TV, perfectly OK with us. A safe could be handy. Access to a laptop with free Wi-Fi in the reception area was appreciated. Breakfast was not very tourist-oriented: I missed a glass of orange juice to start the day with. All these remarks are meant to show what to expect, not to be off-putting, since what we got, including the friendly, helpful ways of the staff, made well up for the few elements we found missing. For good sleepers - yes, the church bell DOES ring every 15 minutes - we would recommend this hotel without any hesitation, as we would return to it, with pleasure. (I am 71!)
3rd floor canal-view room is great (remember: no lift)
