A return visit to this hotel after a few years confirmed our previous good thoughts about it. Position on the river is unbeatable, enabling you to walk to all the main sights and restaurants. Check-in was efficient and friendly, room was fairly standard but very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was spotless, with a good, simple to operate, shower plus large bath and nice toiletries.
The large, comfortable and airy atrium area was ideal for early evening drinks for which the service was very pleasant and helpful - the staff all seem to be able to converse in multiple languages - and was well patronised, giving it a nice buzzy atmosphere.
Didn't eat in the hotel as there are multiple food choices within a very short distance - we would particularly recommend Korenlei Twee, just by the bridge to the left of the Marriott.
Would certainly choose this hotel again, despite the high-ish price tag!
