It’s hard to imagine a better-located hotel, set right on the riverside in the World Heritage old town. This treat hotel (it’s not cheap) sits in a series of ancient arcaded houses but with utterly modern interiors. Because of its age and structure there are no soaring spaces – rather, it’s a cosy, intimate place with quirky levels following the contours of the protected buildings. This also means the rooms are standard size but they are beautifully furnished and equipped with the biggest pillows you ever did see. If you can splash the cash go for a river view; splash more for a view with a balcony. Breakfast is included and is enough to stoke you up for the day.
