My room did not look like the pictures. It was much more out-of-date. The bathroom was modern and clean although a bit awkward. But still nice considering this is an old building. I was charged for room + breakfast although the booking said no breakfast included and I did not take breakfast. Also at check in I was not told about breakfast. This was removed however, after I explained. The front desk staff had hard time speaking english. I do not expect english speakers if the hotel is not geared for international travelers, however, this hotel has a lot of international travelers, therefore, the staff should be able to speak/understand english moderately.
PROS: location very close to waterfront in the middle of the downtown. You can drive up to drop off luggage and then go park.
CONS: not very nice and not that helpful front desk staff. No parking at the hotel - closest structure is 6 minutes away. If you have heavy luggage, it is hard to get it to your room even if you can get it dropped off by the entrance - the hotel has steps to get to elevator to get the rooms. The room was fairly outdated and very tight. The sound travels from other rooms easily so you can hear when your neighbours down the hall are showering or sneezing. I was on the 2nd floor all the way in the back, but could still hear the front door opening/closing. Better insulated room doors would be helpful. less
