    Location, brakfast, gaand patio.

    The rooms are a little dark

  • Single
    7.4

    Convenient location

    No sign outside saying "Best Western"; either it is "Best Western" or "River" not both "american" style soft white bread for breakfast. Coffee made in batches and kept warm, machines making single cups from beans are better

  • Older travelers

    Requested river view room on high floor during booking at Booked.net. However, after my credit card was charged (by the hotel directly) the hotel staff said on our arrival that our request could not be fulfilled. The hotel staff were dishonest - they should have rejected or responded to our booking instead of charging my credit card account !!! We finally got a room on upper ground floor (so called 2/f) - the hotel staff said it was the highest floor we could get. Hotel staff are in general rude to Asians.

    Good friendly staff, clean pleasantly decorated room.

    Internet did not work, a major nuisance. Lift did not work not so bad - I need exercise. Coffee lousy and it is supposed to be Italy. I knew there would be no view from the room but must have misread the information because I thought that the bar had a terrace where one could sit out. This was not the case.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Convenient and nice location

    Our second room was a bit pokey and old fashioned

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    Location was great, right on the river and close to all major attractions

    Staff were rude and unhelpful Wifi was very poor Breakfast was average
