Excellent location, nice & comfortable room. On the whole the hotel exudes lot of warmth and positive vibes. The breakfast needs a bit of variation as the same fare was offered every day and could get monotonous... probably there could be eggs made to order included on the menu (maybe on alternate days of the week), Simits or some variations in breads.

Our room on the 4th floor had a king size bed and ensuite, with really interesting views of the waterway and ships in the distance. Very clean and pleasant, with fresh towels the second day. The room also had air-con and a heater if needed. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It was great to be able to step just outside to many restaurants and little shops, with the major attractions a short walk away.
