The hotel is really near to the Waterfront (at a walking distance). Rooms are clean and attentively managed. The reception is great and the whole personnel (from Luyanda to Shafieka) extremely kind. Breakfast is organized as a bouffé and is of remarkable quality.

Belthazar and Willoughby - depending if you prefer meat or fish. But all the places in the Waterfront are excellent- don't eat in the hotel - walk a bit!
