Upon entering from the reception side it seems like just a nice business class hotel - nothing particularly special. My room was clean and comfortable with a view of mostly modern buildings. But, as you exit the other side of the hotel towards the city you'll see the canal with a magnificent view of the old gabled architecture. It's just a short walk to the major sights and you can even board a canal tour right outside the doors.
Our tour guide told us the building used to house at various points at brewery and a brothel, as indicated by the swans on the facade.
