The setting is nice, overlooking the river, though it was rather cool to sit on the terrace. Food OK, nothing special. Friendly service.

This hotel is located in a very nice area. although far from the city centre, it offers what any traveller requires, good bed and good food. This is also an excellent place for a family lunch. After a scrumptious meal, one can take a walk...More
