Chose this hotel mainly because of the pool on the roof and the good value for a four star hotel in August. It's location is pretty good - only takes 10-15 minutes to walk to the centre. Being alongside the river, the views are good - certainly from our room - although we did end up having to pay an extra 10 euros a day for a room with a double bed which we had requested at the time of booking. We were told the standard rooms available (which we had paid for) only had twin beds. Clean, large and good facilities. Didn't try the breakfast as it seemed quite expensive - especially with all the good bars and restaurants nearby.
The roof pool is refreshing after a hot day site-seeing but is very small - more of a plunge pool really. Hotel charge a 10 euro deposit per towel which seems unnecessary in a four star property.
The rooftop bar - which opens at 7pm - is a lovely place for a drink with a good view and chill-out feel. You pay a premium for the drinks, but reception can give you a discount voucher.
We didn't use the hotel car park as found a free space on a nearby road - but this was not easy even in August when the city is quiet.More
