We stayed 3 night in this hotel back in May 2011.
Pro: the coffee maker in the room was pretty cool. And free minibar drinks n snack everyday.
Cons: the hotel is said to be a heritage hotel, For me, that translates to dark, dim, a bit outdated, and stuffy. Maybe because we had room facing the inner court on the first floor. (view: roof from the building, and other people windows, and no sunlight). We requested room with a better view, and they said we need to upgrade and pay more. Apparently our view is the standard deluxe room type. So yeah, not very happy about the hotel. The alleyway is a bit dark and old too.. kinda feel depressing. We were dissapointed, as we read some good review from tripadvisor.
So my advice is, perhaps you get better experience if you pay the more expensive room that has the canal view. We definitely won't going back, and won't recommend this so called heritage hotel.
