This is a beautiful deco hotel, steeped in history. The rooms are stunning, there's a pool and sauna, and the staff are really helpful. The beds are big and comfortable, and the price is reasonable. There's ample parking, and you're walking distance from some good restaurants.

I don't recall a pool since I went in the Spring and it was quite cold. You might want to ask the hotel staff. The hotel is not in the city centre, but there's a tram that you can take and it will drop you off at the city centre. The hotel is very convenient if you have a car because finding a parking spot in the city centre is quite difficult. Enjoy this beautiful city.
