I traveled solo, and was happy with this hotel. The location was great, the room was clean, the price was reasonable and the staff was excellent. The 4th floor location was not an issue as they did help take my luggage up. The room décor was minimalistic, but still comfortable. It had a refrigerator, two place settings of dishes, two... More

Good location right by the river and at the start of the pedestrian walkway. The facility is an old-style building but the room had modern decor, simple, and very clean. The staff (Tina) was really nice and accommodating. However, I would think twice about returning because of the lack of an elevator. The facility is actually on the fourth floor... More

As the accommodation is in heart of the city no parking is provided. Nice and spacious rooms. We arrived at night and were not sure where exactly the reception is. The place is basically in quite old house but once you get there the spotless white rooms do not give you that feeling.
