Not being able to book or confirm a canal view when paying and booking for a hotel on the canal made it pointless. The "standard double" room was similar to an attic room with sloped ceilings making for even less usable space. You had to duck to access the toilet in the washroom, you could not properly sit in the chairs in the room due to head space, and you could not properly open the closet door due to the position of the bed.
Particular staff were very terse and unaccommodating while others were more pleasant.
An even bigger drawback were the common areas ... carpets in the hallways and dining area were covered with large dirt and soil stains everywhere making it very unappealing.
