    What a view! Nice, but not extraordinary rooms. The beds feel like they might do with being replaced. Very vow an, also due to the no-shoes policy. The conference rooms where well equipped and served our needs. Nice walk to the center of the town.

    I stayed there as part of my cuise arrangements. The hotel is nice and clean. The buffet breakfast is fine as well as the restaurant. The hotel is located a bit outside of the center, but you can easily walk 10min.
