Hotel was clean and reception was friendly. Attached restaurant was good. I ate there twice. Location was great. Tram stopped 1/2 block away. River only 5 minute walk as is shopping.
No air conditioning. If you get a south facing room in warm weather you will regret it.
Location was good, staff was friendly, room was fairly clean
Room was very small, furniture was old, the sink was in the wardrobe, poor facilities, too expensive, loud at night.
The staff was very helpful and friendly! The breakfast was very good also.
