We had booked the room om hotels.com, and it said that the room had air conditioning. Well, it does have ventilation, and it is possible to set the temp in the room. But it doesn't work vey well, for us it was impossible to get the temp down to comfortable sleeping temp - which for us is less than 17-18 degrees. We were not able to open the window either, so it ended up being a very warm night. Also, we like the wider beds, but here it was quite narrow. The room was clean, although a bit worn. Breakfast buffet was very nice. Very central location.

Excellent place close to the river and the river-boats taking you to several locations within the city, all for free. Our stay was in the middle of the covid-19 lock-down period so many restaurants and other shops were closed. Anyway, we had a good time.

The service was nice, and it is centrally located. However, it needs a bit of refurbishment, particularly the bathroom of the room I had was old. The tap was leaking and the water was slow to disappear. Reception informed that the rooms were being renovated so I am sure it will be better soon. Breakfast was good for corona times!

Centrally located and close to everything. Noise from the streets comes with location, but fairly good isolated building and rooms. Decent room standard, good breakfast and very good service from all of the staff.
