You can't get any more authentic: right on a canal, steps from everything you probably want to see and everywhere you want to eat, in converted, centuries-old buildings. It's like staying in a museum. This was the only hotel that the guide on our canal boat trip pointed out. The rooms, accessible by small winding staircases or a small lift are clean, of comfortable size, well-furnished and well-equipped, with modern bathrooms. They're a little underlit, and the paint and carpets could use some touchups, but we stayed there at the end of what apparently was a very busy tourist season, so maybe that was to be expected. In any event, it did not detract from our visit. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet was large and delicious and served on Limoges china in a beautiful, room. There's even a small swimming pool and a sauna. Parking (for a fee) is available around the corner.
