Habitación fabulosa, enorme, con dos camas, sofá cama también, gran armario, mesa y butaca. Muy confortable, con varios puntos de luz cálidos que hacía estar muy a gusto. El baño enorme, con lavabo de dos senos y una ducha muy grande, y por supuesto, con amenities. Muchas ventanas, incluso en el baño, con estores blancos y contraventanas que tapan bien la luz. Vista al río y al jardín de hotel. El personal muy amable, el hotel muy cuidado, todo muy nuevo, limpio y moderno. Muy buenas instalaciones, salón-bar muy acogedor y jardín al río con terraza que en verano debe ser genial. Mucho aparcamiento gratis en el mismo hotel. Ubicación inmejorable. A mejorar: los colchones. Las camas tienen muy buena ropa, con nórdico en vez de manta, pero el colchón es de muelles que se clavan un poco. Algo más moderno, como un topper visco, les bastaría para hacerlos mucho más cómodos y ser un hotel perfecto.
