Fodor's Review

Built in the 19th century on the site of two ancient guildhalls, this waterfront lodging is full of style. State-of-the-art tile baths, parquet floors, black-and-white furnishings, and one of the best addresses in the heart of the Old Town make this the slickest in its price class. Its chic restaurant has a combination as desirable as it is rare: an elegant interior, shimmering river views, and a sophisticated menu. There's a more casual, less expensive bistro area as well.
