Nice hotel right on the river, easy walk into town and other sites. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Full breakfast was included with cost of room. My only issue was the keypad allowing entry to my room was not functioning, and I had to ask staff to unlock the door every time I returned (this occasionally involves waiting in line at the desk). Everyone was pleasant about this, but I was not offered anything as compensation for this inconvenience.

Our room smelled dampness the first night we arrived as if our room was recently recovered from a flooding issue.
