    4/5 Good

    Cool experience to room aboard the ship - quarters and private bathroom were generous, bed comfy - turns out they have a thriving bar with live music on the top deck late afternoons/evenings that is well visited by natives and tourists with good views of the city and ports. Had fun just walking around the ship and learning about its history. Located within walking distance of the main train station. Good breakfast.

    Ship shape place to stay

    Stayed here for four nights, to meet friends and go to a concert. The room was nice, but the windows couldn't be opened and no A/C meant that it got really hot in the room. There was a fan, but that only moved the hot air around. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was basic, but good. Location close to City centre. I would recommend for a stay for solo travellers, or with friends, but perhaps not for a romantic getaway.
