It is a prime choice for guests on official business or those just desiring to tour the historic city & the accommodations at affordable rates & value for money. You have the option of selecting between rooms that offer a view of the enchanting river or the bustling city view. Breakfast buffet is good with varieties. Staff are friendly courteous....

Awful hotel, just awful!! Noisiest AC I have ever had. My partner and I had to speak loudly to hear each other over the noise. Windows were so dirty couldn't see out of them. Probably was a nice hotel in it's day, but very run down and in need of a total refurb. Breakfast was dismal. We had hoped to...

First, the hotel is right next to a busy road - it's like sleeping next to a Formula 1 circuit. At night the local bikers are doing practice runs with screaming engines - probably to impress the prostitutes waiting along the road. No problem, the aircon and fridge are loud enough to cover most of the car noises. But not...

This hotel is right along the river side so a good location. The surrounding area is very pretty and at night is even better due to all the fairy lights. Our room was on the sixth floor and was facing the river so was fairly quiet. The room itself was quite spacious , but a little rough around the edges,...
