Beautiful building mixing old with new. The building was a prison in a previous life but it doesn't feel confined. The rooms are very large and very comfortable. We stayed in a 4star room with TV, shower and large double bed. Everything was neat and tidy and comfortable (if you like firm beds you'll be happy). We had a meal...

We had the most amazing sleep in months! The beds were super comfy. Everything was clean and tip top. The design was beautiful and exciting. Staff was always helpful and efficient. The Hotel was quiet and peaceful also right next to the canal. About 10 minutes from the central station and the city center. Loved it! Fabulous!💗

The hotel is very pleasent and very beautiful. The staff are nice. Since every room is designed differently you can try 3-4 different rooms untile you fined the one you are satisfied with. The only big minus in the rooms are that there are no ventilation in the toillets. The restaurant is also good though a bit expensive as expected...

It was an atypical stay but in the good way, we had a very surprising and huge room with a large bathtub. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. It was just very embarrassing to have no door in the bathroom, you really to know well the person with you... Part of that We really enjoy our stay.
