I have stayed here before and liked it -booked with a very good deal so was looking forward to staying here - the location is perfect. A short walk to most of the main sights. It's a no1 tram for 3 euros (pay at machine not on tram) to get from the central station to the main town. So very... More

The main and biggest plus of this hotel is location and an exceptional view on the river. Personally I didn't try the breakfast, but seemed to be nice. Service was a bit strange: first day cleaning lady forgot to turn off the lights and water in the bathroom, next morning entered the room even with the sign "do not disturb".... More

Friendly staff and comfortable well fitted hotel make this an enjoyable place to stay. Excellent range of hot and cold breakfast buffet in the rooftop breakfast room. We had view over river which was great and we did not mind the tourist boats with amplified commentary. The hotel is converted from old industrial premises. The only downside to this hotel... More

The wooden beams and the construction reminded on a different generation... not modern.. but very beautiful... Right next to the square.. very peaceful.. and if you are there on... More

The sunrise and sunset in this location was stunning, with lovely residents ducks! The hotel bar, and outside area was lovely - fantastic service. The breakfast bar was wonderful... More

Very nice place, and also very nice staff. Breakfast buffet is terrific, a lot of good things. Rooms are cosy, charming. Not easy to park since there is not parking car. Very well located close to the place of the Friday's market.

The pics do enhance the river view aspect somewhat but a generally nice hotel. We were allowed an early check in AND given a business class upgrade. Breakfast excellent & in a lovely spot on the 3rd floor. Near to all sites!
