We stayed in this hotel two nights with a group, including two children, (7 and 10). The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were traveling with family, including a handicapped person, and they made every effort to help us get around and find what we needed. The children enjoyed playing in the pool area, although it is more or a relaxation pool and rather small. We stayed in the older part of the hotel and found the rooms charming and they had everything we needed. It is ideally located to walk to anywhere in the city, but also has a feel of being off the path off the main areas so it was very quiet. For families with children, I would recommend eating at the many restaurants in the city or on the canals and the dining offered is a little to formal for children.
