I am really mixed about what to say in this review because there is good and bad.
The good - the best part is the very friendly and accommodating staff - they would try to help with anything. The breakfast was awesome - free the first day, and then 10 Euros per person, but worth every bit. The breakfast room was very comfortable with classical music and great service. This later became a comfortable lounge/sitting area to escape your small room. Just outside were chairs and tables where you could sit and enjoy wine/coffee/dinner when the weather was good. Fresh towels were provided every day.
The bad - the room was "Way Too Small" for two people, even by European standards. There was no chance of putting even one suitcase down - get what you need and stand it up in a corner. You had to move the chair in order to get in to the bathroom. Things had to be piled on top of other things. This room (on the third floor - not facing canal) should really be made into a single person/single bed room. The view was other hotel rooms in close proximity - at one point someone from another hotel climbed out their window to smoke - and could basically climb in our window if so inclined - be aware of safety.
Also, this room is in sad need of repair. The old shag red carpet was torn and curled up from the baseboards in many areas, and looked quite dusty and dirty. It really needs to be replaced. The bed is lumpy and saggy.
Perhaps if you get a larger canal-view room the stay would be more comfortable. It is a pity that the rooms are so run down, because otherwise, there is a lot of charm and potential in this hotel.
