Emerging from the train station, we spotted the hotel just a few minutes stroll away. Booking months ahead via their website, we got a half-price deal of only 60 Euros per night for a superior room with breakfast. While we did not notice anything particularly superior about it, the room (number 23) was comfortable and very clean. We had a pleasant view out over the harbor. Despite the busy street just outside, we heard no noise at night, thanks to the double-glazing. (It might be a different story in summer with the window open). Bathroom lighting was rather dim. Pressure in the shower was barely adequate, but the water was nice and hot. Breakfast was good. Staff were friendly, and service was good except that when we returned one day at 4:00 p.m. we were disappointed to find our room not yet made up. We ate two evening meals in the hotel restaurant. The first was very good, the second not.
