The staff was efficient and friendly, ensuring a quick and pleasant check-in experience. They were also quick to provide assistance as needed. The hotel itself is in excellent condition and is well located for all the city sights. It is a very easy walk to numerous shops, restaurants and pubs. My room was spacious and clean with a view over the river.
