Great hotel - we would go back.
Location - very central. The area felt safe and approx 5 minutes steady walk from Burg square, which leads into the Markt square.
Rooms - clean and modern, not massive but enough room. Complimentary safe.
Bar - make the most of the bars Happy Hour (4-6pm) where many drinks are half price - look for the H on the drinks list, served with complimentary snacks. Its seems to be pot luck for if you get the grumpy or the smiley barman, there is one of each! Lovely little courtyard area outside the bar to relax in - a nice escape from local smokers in the bar area.
Breakfast - plenty to choose from, hot and cold options and served until 11am. Breakfast room very pleasant, views of the little pond or over the internal courtyard.
Parking - was fine for us, we emailed before hand to organise it.
Dining Out - lots of places available. Some restaurants in a good location by the canal behind the buildings on your left hand side, before the first bridge - though they do seem to finish serving quite early. We had some great value fixed price 3 course menus ranging from €17 - €30 p/person in the Makt square. Drinks - House wine started around €10 per bottle. Beers around €3-4 a bottle.
Activities - the canal boat trip is a great start and you receive discount when booking this hotel, final cost around €7 p/person. After the boat trip, we found the best way to see things in detail was to take a steady walk, there is something to see on every corner and you could just while away a couple of days meandering around the pretty streets and cafes, without stepping foot into the other great places!
Market - a lovely market, full variety of food and flowers, a great place to buy a picnic.
Chocolates - we bought ours from the chocolate shop in the Burg square, where you can also buy a cool bag for €1 extra. The lady was very funny, if not a little scarey! But you can buy them everywhere!
