This is a fabulous hotel. We stayed here for three nights in August. The unique thing about this hotel is that everything is included in the price, from breakfast in the morning till drinks from the bar at night. And along the way, if you are in the lounge, there are regular offerings of cheese, bread, olives, meats, nuts, nachos, chocolates, tea, coffee, and water, not to mention wines, beers and spirits! There are also computers, and i pads in the lounge for guests use, with free internet. In your room there is a free mini bar, and complimentary whisky, cognac and gin, and your TV will have movies, sport, music and even porn, all completely free. We were also given complimentary upgrades, and got a lovely canal view. Breakfast is a delight, and along with a continental breakfast of breads, cheeses and various meats, the talented egg chef will make you fresh eggs cooked in front of you exactly as you like them. You can have your eggs boiled, fried, scrambled, poached, or cooked in an omelette, or even as eggy bread! (French toast). The staff are helpful from arrival to departure, and always happy to help. Highly recommended.
