Great little hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful with directions when needed. Everything is within 20-30mins walk from the hotel, or even quicker if you cycle. Modern and comfortable. The king size bed was very comfortable and the room was very well sized. Saw a few reviews saying the elevator was slow, it is. But frankly not an issue if... More

Was rather pleased with the hotel. The room was comfortable and staff were helpful. The noise outside the room could be heard quiet easily especially during the night time. Be aware you can't get into your room until 3pm but they kindly look after your bags so you can go explore. I would recommend the hotel as it was a... More

Room 2 on the ground floor is quite small and noisy because of people traveling through the entrance and from the receptionist himself one evening until midnight. Bathroom is about 1 meter x 2 meters (3 x 6 feet) all included, i.e. the entire bathroom is the... More

Modern, comfortable and well situated. The king size bed was very comfortable. Close to huge selection of cafes and restaurants, close to river canal cruise boarding jetty. Within walking distance to most attractions. We walked to the maritime museum. Well priced, I was very happy with this hotel

Well located hotel, comfortable bed. Clean rooms and bathrooms. We stayed on the ground floor, next to the reception, which was very loud. We only stayed fo a day for going out, so it didn't bother us so much, but I would probably wont book it again.
