Excellent location,friendly staff, ample breakfast
My husband and I stayed for 1 night in this hotel in May '21. The location of the hotel is excellent: close to the Citadel and the Meuse river. The hotel staff is multi-lingual, and very helpful. We opted for a standard room with a view of the pool at the back of the hotel, because it was bigger and probably quieter than the Deluxe rooms with views of the river at the streetside. Parking was free,on the street in front of the hotel. The room had a comfortable double bed,a desk with a minifridge enclosed,1 chair, a red alcove with a seat, a closet with a safe, a see-through shower and a sink with design amenities in the room, a separate toilet, and a small balcony. There was a flatscreen TV and free WIFI too. The room was soundproof, quiet and very clean. The dinner in the hotel was a bit of a disappointment: although the food was very tasty, portions were very small with few accompaniments and the wine was on the expensive side. Breakfast however was ample and very tasty. We could choose between a sweet or hearty breakfast or we could get a combination of the two (which we did). On top of that, we could opt for eggs any style, fruit and juice. As long as there are Covid-restrictions, breakfast is served on a tray in the room at an hour of your choosing. There isn't much space to eat it, though . One of us could sit on the chair at the desk, the other one had to sit on the bed. We had a very good stay here, and we will stay here again when we are in Namur.
