Stayed three nights on half board with Riviera Lakes & Mountains tour. The hotel has a good location near the Mirabelle gardens and a bridge across the river to the old city centre. We had an enormous room at the front of the hotel, overlooking the street. But it was sparsely furnished and the bathroom was small, although adequate. The weather was very hot, about 35C during the day, so we needed to have the windows open at night, even though a fan was provided. However, there was a lot of street noise, and we were disturbed by the rubbish being collected at 6am every morning.
The hotel is built on a hillside so when you get out of the lift at, say, level 3, there is a landing from which you have to go down about 8 steps to the rooms at the front, or up about 8 steps to the rooms at the back. This split level is also in the dining room. At breakfast the self-service area is at an intermediate level between the lower dining room at the front and the higher one at the back.
Breakfasts were excellent, with cooked breakfasts made to order and brought to the table. There was no choice in our half-board dinner menu, but we enjoyed the variety of what was provided. Wines were a bit expensive. Beware that unless you buy a bottle, the wine is charged by the 125cc glass. If you get a half-litre carafe you are charged for four glasses. So you might just as well get one glass, and then get another if you like it, or get something different if you don't.
We went up to the roof "garden" on a couple of occasions, but it was deserted. There is access from the roof garden to a public footpath up the hillside to a viewpoint over the city.
We found all the staff to be friendly and generally helpful. On balance we recommend this hotel, especially for when the weather is not so hot, and providing that you are OK with stairs.
