Great location, walking distance from the river and restaurants etc.

Rooms are very modest, small furniture, not great if you have to work while you are staying there. Poor wifi in the hotel / rooms. Some street noise as close to some cafe's etc.

Hotel staff gave us great recommendations for dining and how to get to locations of interest. The location is great too.

That funny little step between the bathroom and the main room. Pretty minor though really.
