The Sofitel was around $200 per night and does not include breakfast. I recommend a coffee / pastry shop for breakfast, a light lunch, and a nicer dinner. That will run 100-125 Euro per day for a couple.

"if i tell you how we get a super top room for regular price - it won't work anymore."
"Higher floors are quieter, south side rooms are bright and sunny with better view."
"River view not essential"
"fleet view is more expensive but not a real plus compared to city view"
"We stayed in room 4203. Room is on the third floor which makes it a bit weirdly numbered. Even numbers: canal view, uneven: street."
US$171 - US$400 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
