Michel and his staff do a great job of answering your tour or sightseeing questions and assisting with directions, local knowledge, etc. Breakfast is on the main floor with several selections, hot or cold but always fresh made to order. There are plenty of restaurants within a reasonable walking distance for your other meals. The main HopOnHopOff - CitySightseeing office...
