Stayed in an executive room, which was comfortable but bland. Had excellent breakfasts in the top floor lounge, with pleasant views over the City. Nothing really very wrong with the Hotel, but then nothing really exciting to talk about either. Next time in this City full of character and charm, I will make a more imaginative choice of Hotel.

What a great experience. We stayed at this hotel in July 2013 and I have to say, I would defintely return. The hotel is about a 5 minute cab ride from the main area of town and the river. We found their prices to be so much more affordable than what is offered down by the river and the room...

It is a little bit far form the center, and this is the only negative note about this hotel. Rooms are large, well furnished. Breakfast is quite good and also the restaurant. Nothing to say about, just the distance form the city center and the river area.
