Very special hotel it's a rebuilt watertower and quilte charming place. I had a "small" loft room, that's was not that's small it was fine for me and it would be fine for two also. The rebuilt has been done with respect for the old building. TV is very small.
I liked it a lot.
Downsides are the location in the middel of an industrial neighbourhood and sometimes long waiting time in the restaurant. Three is a 20 minutes walk to the old towncenter.
