    The first room we were shown did not have a window and that just doesn't work for us. For an additional $20 / night we got a window and a river view. Taxi drivers had trouble finding the hotel. Close to water taxi. Wireless internet was quite expensive. Good for breakfast but I wouldn't eat any other meals there. Caters to the European bus tours. I might stay there again but would probably choose something a bit more central.
