June 2007

The hotel is located in the historic part of the city with good traffic connections

The description ´´high tech´´ is quite misleading. The hotel - located in a 19th century brick building - has been renovated (propably in the 80´s) with the use of some chrome and stainless steel, fancy downlights and built-in cabinets. The heigt of the rooms is very very low (due to AC installation work)and painted in dark purple, which makes the space camped and depressing. The bathrooms all have glass walls and provide full sight from the room - very strange. Faucets, bathtubs and shower all are a little worn and shaky - the place must have seen better times. Rooms oriented to the river are quite noisy, as the main road passes just underneath.
