Its the perfect place to stay in the city. Station, market area, hop on hop off bus stop are all close by. Best is the beautiful riverside. Can also view from ur room if facing that side. Buffet breakfast is boring..no variety. Also it closes too early for the liking of people on a leasurely holiday. No room service as... More

Fits the standard HIE format, and rooms clean and well featured, but a lack of hot water in the shower meant having to wash in the basin which was a disappointment. Not up to the usual standard of this chain, but well located and priced.
