We stayed three nights at this hotel and I was quite disappointed. While the location is very central and nice on the river the hotel is dated and the room we had smelt damp and was dark. Checking in was also a drama with no way to drop our bags off due to the road being open only certain times in the day. We had to park in a public park and then drag our luggage through cobbled streets and up and down stairs to get to the hotel - not easy and not fun.
The breakfast was OK but not great. There were no English papers available any day we were there. The best thing about this hotel was being able to use the pool (and sauna) at the Pousada (their sister hotel) which was beautiful. The staff were nice, but in retrospect I think staying at the Pousada would have suited us better.
