Great hotel and location!
Location location location! - tucked away right below the train station and steps away for all the restaurants and shops. Very close to the water too. Hotel staff was helpful they had underground parking for a fee but once your there you get free.public transportation passes from the hotel so that more then paid for re parking. And the room- which was a top floor family room Had airconditioning- a luxury for sure in Europe.
Was hard to get to by car but in the end that's a plus as there isn't a lot of street traffic so it's more quiet.
