My husband and I spent two nights at this hotel in late May 2010. Our room (# 1) was a large corner room with both a balcony on the riverside and a terrace on the other side. Although situated just beyond the front desk, it was quiet. The hotel’s main asset is its extremely good location on the river at the entrance to the bridge leading to the old town. Unfortunately, its interior is due for a thorough cleaning and freshening up. The owner was friendly, but more preoccupied with her large, handsome Great Dane (who bounded into the small lobby to greet all arrivals) than with her lodgers. Especially interesting in the old town is the site of the medieval Jewish women’s ritual baths that can be visited on a brief tour arranged through the Visitor Center.
