The location is excellent, opposite the convention centre and very close to the bridge that leads across to the old town a short walk away. We stayed for 3 nights and were quite happy with the cleanliness and standard of the room, it was equipped with all the basics you need and there was plenty of wardrobe space. The staff were quite helpful, although we didn't require much extra assistance. The servicing of the room wasn't done twice, but when we asked to exchange the towels for clean ones, there was no problem.
We had an outside room with a small balcony overlooking the convention centre. While there was some noise, it was mainly in the mornings with tour groups gathering at the bus stop outside and this didn't bother us. It was nice to have a door to open for fresh air & to step outside if we felt like it. We also had some water views.The lack of airconditioning was not a problem as the weather wasn't hot. Be aware though, that a 'double' bed is simply two singles made up separately then pushed together!
Parking was easy, straight into the underground parking across the road (under the convention centre), bring your ticket into the hotel and simply pay with your bill, and your parking ticket is validated to leave again. This was much cheaper than other parking options.
Overall the hotel was great value for money and with such a good location, I would recommend it.
