Possibly the best, most comprehensive breakfast I have ever had in a hotel. Room was never too crowded and there are so many choices it was nearly unbelievable. Plus, they will cook something directly to your order, if you wish!
Hotel location is excellent one 1/2 block from the main square and right near the river. Hotel has 2 reception areas, but it was never explained how or when to use which one. The guest rooms are extremely spacious on the 5th floor at the newer end of the property. The 3 rooms we had all included a full bathtub/shower combination and twin beds, with 2 large windows.
The only real problem I had was that when we arrived, the maid was still cleaning the room and I had been told it was ready. I immediately noticed that the room was extremely warm and she agreed. She turned off the heater in the room, but not in the bathroom. When I woke up the next morning the bathroom registered more than 89 degrees. Maintenance was called and when I returned to the room 10 hours later it was still 86.5 degrees! This was in December and I was told the only thing to do was to open both windows widely. There was no explanation for the problem, but I was uncomfortable for several hours, sitting in the cold trying to get the temperature in the bathroom at a reasonable level.
Also, the duvet cover was worn and frayed along the edges - not in keeping with the overall impression of the hotel. However, there were many high quality bathroom amenities and a safe that was easy to use.
