The property should really notify guests that they have 2 properties. One being 4-star and another being 3-star. Instead they tell you they have River-view and City-view without differentiating the City-view is 3-Star. The site only lists the 4-Star rating. In addition, the City-view rooms are covered in scaffolding and workers arrive to make noise before 7:00 AM. Luckily the entire city goes to sleep by 9:00 so there's no reason to wake late.

The rooms and especially the bathrooms are tiny. They’ve been upgraded since I was last there and I realise the space is what it is but I did fight with the shower doors. The staff are pleasant enough however at check-in I was ignored for a while by the guy on the desk until he was ready to speak to me. Also no offer with luggage which would have been appreciated since my room was a few floors up a lot of stairs.
