We stayed 4 nights at the Rival and it was excellent. The bed was comfortable, the room was bright and clean and the bathroom was lovely.
Location is excellent, just a stones throw from the metro and across from a lovely park with restaurants and cafes close by.
Breakfast was excellent. Buffet style with fruit, pastries, breads , meats and cheese. With bacon and eggs as a hot option. You can also order from the breakfast menu at no extra charge, pancakes, mushrooms on toast etc.
The staff were lovely and always helpful. The room had a selection of CDs and a DVDs and you could order DVDs from the library, perfect after a long day looking at the sights.
My only small grumble would be the lack of storage space, the small wardrobe was just enough but there were no empty drawers. We removed the spare bedding and put it under the bed so that we could use the drawer for clothing.
