We took a two week road trip to Europe and the only hotel we booked before going over was this one which was for our first night because we knew we would have jet lag. The hotel is made from an old barge and sits on a river. If you're looking for a fun and different hotel, this is a great choice! We weren't in the town center, but just a short walk away (and away from any noise!). We were able to park on property at the hotel which is always a plus! We checked in, went out and explored, had a beer, and then slept for several hours. It was late when we finally wanted dinner (8:30 pm-ish) so we went to the restaurant at the hotel. We were the only other people dining. A young college guy, Dardan, was our server for the night. We enjoyed an excellent first meal in Europe! We had local beer, frites, and dessert! We also enjoyed great conversation with Dardan!
Our room looked out onto the water and we even enjoyed ducks quaking during the night. The hotel doesn't have lots of frills, but we weren't looking for that. This is definitely the most unique hotel we've stayed in and it was a great first night in Europe for us thanks to the uniqueness of the room and the pleasant service and conversation with Dardan at dinner!
