This hotel is in a pleasant location by a canal. Mornings were noisy because of construction work on a bridge right outside, but it looked as if it should be completed soon. The decor and furnishings were tired in my compact double room but it was clean. As well as the room being compact the bathroom was tiny - the smallest I've seen anywhere - and I couldn't get my knees under the desk when trying to work. The staff were pleasant and friendly at all times. The accommodation was reasonable value but wifi access was a complete rip-off at 5 euros for 1 hour, 25 euros for 5 hours and a staggering 40 euros for 12 hours which makes wifi more expensive than the accommodation rates. I would not therefore recommend the hotel to anyone who needs internet access other than through the free PC provided in the lobby.
