Kanra is literally a temple of modern zen coolness. The bed was like 2 x the size of a king! The bath / shower is amazing. the living room area is cool and even the yamaha stereo to hook your phone / mp3 player up to is so cool. I literally didn't want to leave the room. It was so peaceful and chic. The area is a bit of a walk from the historic area but if you can walk or can ride bike (they offer free bikes), it's not a problem.
