8/10 Very good

Nice bar and basic rooms.
Staying there for two nights was fine. The location is great, but the room is very basic and needs updating.

4/10 Fair

Construction was going on above our room for two hours after we arrived, exceptionally loud. The room was exceedingly hot and the air conditioner also was quite noisy. Staff provided us with a room fan during the night. The view was amazing, but we had to keep the curtains closed in the morning due to the sun shining into the hot room. The breakfast buffet was superb, and we also enjoyed our dinner in the hotel .

Excellent stay, great view
It was an excellent stay. We did a trip with several hotel stays and this one was definitely the highlight of the week. We got a room on the 12th floor with water views and it was so nice to look at the river.
