Fascinating & interesting layout - a former prison. Each room seems to comprise two cells joined together. The result is not large, but ample. Everywhere clean, and nicely painted. Staff very helpful and friendly. Very good breakfast variety. Nice free gym; sauna available for extra, but we didn't sample. Free wifi around; also free internet available on PC in the lounge.
Tram stop just outside hotel, leads to city centre in a few minutes. After arrival, we usually walked into the centre - about 20 minutes.
We ate out during the evenings, so didn't sample dinner in the hotel, but cooked breakfast lovely.
Ferry nearby to special island, semolina (not spelt like this though).
