Unquestionably the cleanest, nicest, most accommodating, and all around best value of all the 4-stars I've stayed in over the last 2 months. This place is incredible. Everything was great
Stayed 3 nights in November 2010 for an average of 145€/night breakfast not included. Very nice modern hotel ideally located in downtown Bruges. Standard rooms are clean and spacious with an 'assembled' queen bed, an armchair, a desk, 2 closets, a full-sized bathroom with shower and bathtub. View on the canal for some rooms in the back building. Bar fridge & LCD TV. Lights turn on and off with the key card. Free wifi on request at the bar. Parking below the hotel building. Facilities include a restaurant for breakfast, a very cosy bar, a small gym, and a wellness center with sauna & hammam. Walking distance from main shopping streets, restaurants, and museums. The staff are extremely helpful and speak good English. Queen bed was in fact 2 single beds... Gym opens at 10:00am, way too late!
Hotel was clean and just off Market square, very convenient to historical district. Our room had a terrible odor one of the days we were there. Smelled like sewer backup problem.
A central location, well appointed, an excellent breakfast, relaxed. The high standards of cleanliness and comfort. Efficient staff. It played a great part in making our visit to Bruges a great success. A minor point worth considering - We would have liked some drawers in which to put our folded clothes. There was plenty of hanging space in the storage unit. Some of the staff could have looked a little happier.
Fabulous room in the old part of the hotel, sumptuous decor and very clean - more 5star! We had upgraded and was worth it. Enormous double bed and beautifully soft and comfortable, in fact probably only the second most comfortable we've had in the world. Staff were very helpful, and all spoke fluent English, arriving on a Sunday they checked the restaurant in town was open and made our reservation whilst we toured the town. (excellent idea as it was fully booked later). Breakfast was plentiful and of a super standard - even the scrambled egg! Parking was easy and secure and €20 for 24 hours good value. The breakfast room was very hot. Be aware there is a youth hostel up the street and as it is a city hotel in an historic part of town there can be a little noise, this didn't bother us in the least, but it could.
clean, friendly, efficient close to city sights
The beds are very comfortable and soft. The breakfast selection is good and diverse. The shared areas and the old building have a nice ambience and classical style. The hotel is situated very centrally so you are never more than 25 mins walk away Certain members of staff at the reception were getting by putting in the minimum required effort when handling questions and requests. Pro-active is not a word I would use. You can drop off suitcases but you have to put them (yourself) in an unattended, unlocked area, which was rather odd.
Friendly and helpful staff. Great location. Room was excellent. Breakfast was delicious.
Beautifully grand hotel, immaculate throughout. Rooms were superb, décor, bathrooms, all Ist class Excellent breakfast, vast choice hot/cold, all served in very pleasant dining room. No bad points.
I found the staff very aatentive and polite. The hotel is quite opulent even though some of the rooms are hard to find.
i thought the hotel decor was exceptional for a city hotel beautifully appointed reception rooms there are two parts to the hotel and the second part would be slightly less impressive than the first older part but not a big issue otherwise lovely hotel great location
Beautifoul, very very good Nothing
location, staff were great yes, the toiletries we seen on the maids trolley were alot nicer then the ones we were given in our room , why ?
The professional staff and luxurious surroundings made our stay very comfortable. The underground car park was quite expensive at Euro 30/day and did not have a lift into the hotel.
A beautiful hotel which was very comfortable. We didn't eat in the hotel but had drinks in the bar a couple of times which was very pleasant. Staff were extremely polite and helpful. The pool complex was beautiful and relaxing, the only complaint would be the pool could have been made a little bigger. Saying this there were never many people there so it was not really a problem. The hotel is very central and the shops and attractions are nearby. We would recommend a canal boat trip.
Cleanliness, size of the rooms and the style of the rooms The room service menu wasnt the greatest and the shower water varied from scolding to ice cold, unable to find a constant temp.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel. We brought two of our children that were allowed to stay in our room and the hotel decided to give us an upgrade to a suite. This is what hospitality should read like in the dictionary.
The hotel is beautiful. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. They really give the impression that they want you stay to be perfect, and they will do all they can to make it so.
Service from front desk staff is excellent and friendly. Rooms are large and very comfortable, with separate tub and large stand-up shower. You will sleep very well here! Lots of amenities but we didn't try them as we were only there for 2 nights. Good location, about a 5 minute walk to the Markt square.
the location, staff, and services. the TV channels, no enough English and Arabic channels
Frinedly efficient service, excellent breakfast,great location
Very central and quiet. No real complaints
Nice Hotel and friendly staff but not really 4* standards. Parking was convienient and very central.
Thought the location was excellent, staff were very helpful and the bathroom was lovely with a large comfortable bath. No complaints whatsoever
location: easy access to the centrre- attractive, well-appointed newly refurbished room with direct access to street. short on facilities - no bar, no obvious presence of staff on arrival - apart from helpful adnd attentive receptionist
The comfortable room and the location in the centre of Bruges within easy reach of the market square and many restaurants.
Loved that in the apartment we were able to stay together as a family and still be so close to the city center...many times the more spacious the room, the farther from the action. Not so at the Hotel Aragon! Had a lovely stay, would have loved to have stayed longer...literally 2 minutes walk from the Brugge's lovely square. If you are driving a "people mover", you might want to consider alternatives to the hotel's parking (especially in the low season when parking may be available on the street). The hotel parking is very nice and well-protected, but getting into the extremely tight entrance is difficult at best! Was a great stay and will return each time I come to Brugge.
Proximity to city centre no bar
Overall the hotel was very clean and tidy and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room always had a lingering smell of cigarette smoke which meant that the windows had to be always left opened, because of this our sleep was disturbed by the noise of traffic on the road below our window.
very good location, pleasant and helpful staff. very clean and bright rooms.would recommend thankyou for a very pleasant stay. no complaints
Well placed location near to the city centre, helpful staff, nice room and fair value for money. Tea and coffee were available in the lounge during the day but it would have helped to have this explained on arrival as there were no facilities for making hot drinks in the bedroom.
We were traveling with 4 adults and 2 kids so rented the 3 bedroom apartment. It was very large, perfect for our needs. Kitchenette with refrigerater was great to keep cold drinks available. Very clean. And the staff were very helpful and gave great information about places to eat and shopping areas. I will definitely stay here again. The parking at the hotel was limited and very small. Our SUV did not fit through the entrance. But there was a public parking garage with very reasonable daily rates that was a short walk down the street. So this was not a problem at all.
Very friendly and helpful staff,would recommend the hotel to other people.Would like to stay there in the future.
The location was excellent and the availability of parking was a real plus. Ability to check in early on arrival day was also a plus. Staff at reception were very helpful, and knowledgeable. Swimming pool was too cold - to the point of not being usable. This is a pretty big negative as the pool was a main reason to book this hotel. Breakfast was ok but not great. Bar was a little impersonal. Decor around common areas of hotel was bland and lifeless.
Excellent hotel - pleasant, helpful staff and clean, well presented room. Briiliant location near the main square.
The hotel was spotlessly clean and there was a good choice for breakfast. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The pool and sauna were ideal for relaxing after a day's sightseeing and the hotel was centrally located only 2 minutes from market square.
The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. The location was central. The breakfasts were very good - nice choices. No.
breakfast no bacon
Very friendly reception and helpful. Good location, comfortable rooms and safe parking for our car without the hassle of feeding machines.
Cleanliness, Staff polite, pleasant and efficient
perfect location, excellent breakfast
the luxurious room and attention to detail in every aspect - even the silver cutlery usd for breakfast and the crystal glasses used in the bar.
The location is superb. Excellent breakfast, well served. The reception staff were particu;ar;y helpful. We changed rooms because the one we had booked was very cramped. It cost us more but it was worth it. It would be helpful if some warning of the room sizes was available when making the reservation.
The friendliness of the staff The air conditioner was right above the bed!
The location is excellent.Staff very friendly Our room was very small even by European standards and would not have wanted to stay there more than one or two nights
the family feel and the position was excellent No...................
The service, the staff and the location
Beautiful lounge. Comfortable room. Good breakfast, but very expensive.
The staff and the location. The room was a fraction too small for the price.
The charm, location and room facilities of the hotel. The staff could not have done any more for us. The wasn't a restaurant on site and no tea/coffee facilities in the room.
Lovely people and very helpful. Excellent breakfast and great position Our standard room was small and dark ( tree outside window )and poorly lit.The WC was squashed into small space beside the bath and very difficult to use.
Location was perfect for exploring the area. Staff were extremely friendly and helpfull and Hotel in general was spot on. For a short stay it's well worth a look and could not be faulted Breakfast was a little pricey
Good sized room, great location, wifi was solid too Rooms a bit outdated and cheaper. Could've used more amenities.
It was a pleasant, comfortable hotel, very central and convenient with tasteful luxurious decor.
such a comfortable and warm hotel. I would definitely stay here again (especially if we are given any discount for future stays!)
Brilliant location, rooms nice and warm, very clean. On the second day we got up late and their was no hot water for the shower, bed wasnt that comfortable.
You couldn't ask for a better, more convenient location Parking is ridiculously expensive; the layout of the 700-wing of the hotel is ludicrously confusing; the room is small for the price you pay, and the bathroom is tiny.
I have stayed at this hotel before and the location, ambience and value for money is the big attraction. The breakfast is excellent with many english favourites alongside the continental selection. Nothing
Very close to the main square. Priced appropriately and within walking distance to most points of interest.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
Hotel is right at the centre of town, excellent quiet room, really good breakfast in lovely dining room, other commenters suggested breakfast is expensive , it is not cheap but for full breakfast is no more expensive than other places in town. Basement garage is expensive but secure, awkward to get into from the narrow entry road but worth the expense.
Location and standard of accomodation
excellent location, very well kept, staff are exceptional can be a bit noisey
An ideal location with very courteous staff and homely atmosphere. That it was only 3 nights.
When we asked for another room the receptionist was very responsive and moved us to another room with no problem. Our room was facing Market Square and bar of hotel is underneath as well so very noisy until 2am each night and construction starts at 7am nearby so unable to sleep
the location was great. the staff all spoke english, and the lady at reception was very helpful.
room was beautiful, lovely garden. good location
Location and breakfast quality No car parking available despite booking one of a limited number of spaces in advance. But we were room upgraded so that was good compensation. Underground public parking 300 metres is OK except for luggage .
Probably the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The woman at reception was amazing - very helpful and professional. Breakfast was excellent and rooms were beautiful.
During our stay my wife became ill and the staff contacted a local doctor that saw her immediately. This was a very nice service.
It was near to the centre of Bruges. It was a historic building
Lovely location and great breakfast Maids room quite basic for a 4 star hotel and noisy at times due to other guests in corridor.
Beautiful, old world rooms.
had a lovely peaceful room and the breakfast was good
Beautifully decorated, very clean & comfortable bedrooms & bath, very friendly & competent staff, good location, nice breakfast
Hotel decor is very nice, relaxed atmosphere and a good breakfast.
Very comfortable, modern, light and bright, close to the centre, quiet, elegant.
We could not open the wardrobe doors without having to move an arm chair.
There is no restuarant and staff weren't good at advising where to eat when they did recommend and we finally found the restuarant it was fully booked!!! The lack of parking facilities especially as a disabled driver was very inconvienient finally found somewhere which was a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel. I wouldnt stay at the hotel again. Nor would i recommend it
Perfect location for Brugge sightseeing (2mins walk from Market Square), staff very helpful and friendly. We had an executive room which exceeded our expectations; as did rest of hotel. Onsite car park was ideal but has limitted spaces - so book early. Would definitely book this hotel if visitting Brugge again. Disturbed by noise (revellers) from street in early hours of morning on first night - second night ok - location of hotel more than compensated.
the welcoming staff amd the lovely room
Beautiful hotel with a luxury feel,very comfy bed and spacious bathroom.superb room. Breakfast was mediocre for a 4 star hotel,cold bacon and eggs. Unfortunately this hotel us located opposite a youth hostel so any rooms facing on to the street will be disturbed at allhours by the residents as we were.
Friendly helpful staff. Excellent room and hot buffet breakfast.
Drinking in the bar on return to the hotel late evening - informed conversation from staff Paid parking offered was too far from hotel
The Garden view room gave us a very comfortable night in peaceful surroundings.
Location and facilities were wonderful. Hotel on a canal with small square nearby with cafes. Very convenient to Markt Square. Hotel has Old World charm. Delphine at front desk was very helpful. Definitely would stay there again. Our room was quite small - #24- with a small window and not much light. The tub/shower did not have a shower shield on it.
nice area, close to centre, private parking (but not free). no value for money. The hotel looks like it could use some renovations. Bathroom not clean. Breakfast buffet poor, no value for money.
The lovely history and decor and surroundings and comfortable room within easy walking distance to the main area of town Nothing!
Central location, super spacious room and prompt service Nothing to not like at all!!
We loved the character of this hotel, and the friendliness of the staff. it was in a quiet location, but still close to everything. it was very special.
A beautiful hotel, well decorated and adorned with antiques that gave it that period feel. The position was also perfect, adjacent to the main Squares and on the bank of the canal, not to mention some very nice bars on all sides! The canal view rooms are worth the extra and the breakfast first class.
convience and lovely cosi atmosphere welcoming staff
The hotel staff was excellent and ensured our stay had no problems.
Quiet, but only 5 minutes from "the centre". Wonderful breakfast, charming oldie world feel. Staff at reception very helpful. Only thing missing was the in room tea/coffee facilities.
Location, design, friendly, helpful, luxurious, comfortable No soap in bathroom. Hair dryer not powerful enough. Nice rug but was slippy.
I liked everything during my stay at the Martin's Orangerie, especially our room, it's design and cosiness
Very Nice hotel with good location. Main areas of hotel were pretty and well decorated. Room was clean. There was not a shower in our room! Only a hand held shower in a bath....holding the shower head while trying to wash your hair is not that much fun. For a four star hotel, I expect a decent shower. The carpet in our room was quite old and stained as well, but the rest of the room was very nice.
Your hotel is quite unique in a way, and had a good relaxing feel to it. Classy without being over elaborate. None
A nice, comfortable, hotel in a good, central, location. Staff were very efficient and helpful.
1. Good central location 2. Comfort and charm 3. Parking facilities 4. Good lighting, mirrors and hairdryer in room (important for women!) 5. Helpful and attentive staff 6. Cleanliness of room 7. Excellent breakfasts
staff excellent room was at street level
Beautiful hotel and very quiet despite it's central location. Excellent staff with the perfect balance of efficiency and friendliness. Extremely comfortable bed!
The view from the room was excellent, this was the best thing about the hotel, it's location. The staff were not particularly friendly or professional. The manager was better but there was a general feeling that staff did not communicate to one another and of disorganisation. The room we stayed in did not resemble in any way the example pictures shown on the booking.com website; by comparison it was a much lower standard and definitely did not deserve the description 'recently renovated'. On complaining about this we were offered free drinks which we subsequently had to ask for on the last night which felt awkward. For what we paid the room was overpriced and misrepresented.
Very convenient position close to shops and museums.
location decor and breakfast
The location was central to all of the sites Brugge has to offer. The mattress had a plastic cover under the sheet similar to a hospital bed. Also the pillows were very old and in need of replacement.
The view from the room A proper shower fitting would have been nice
Its location in the centre of Bruges is ideal, and the building has a lot of character. The room was spacious and comfortable. The style of decor in the room was bizarre, and needed up-dating.
The hotel staff were really helpful from the point we booked and arranged to be there when we arrived on Eurostar from London (just after 11pm). We felt very welcome and were comfortable throughout our long-weekend stay. Everything was good.
An excellent location to the heart o Bruge The staff were slow, and were not friendly to tourists. Rooms were not available until 3pm no tea coffee facilities in the room
It was clean and suited our short stay. It was a beautiful old building, full of character and in an ideal situation for visiting all the sights. The room safe did not work but alternative arrangements were made and the bathroom door did not close properly.
Hotel staffs are great! location is good, hotel room is very comfortable even it's small. bed is comfortable as well.. breakfast is good, nice view by the canel. it must be really nice if go during summer time none
*Excellent* location. Very close to the train station and to the center of the city, but insulated from craziness off a lovely little street leading into a beautiful park. Really a wonderful area. I know this is relatively typical for a European hotel, but the room was tiny. The bed was so narrow I had flashbacks to college. Wonderful bathtub, good thick quiet walls, but just a tiny little room. It's a great place to stay, but I have trouble reconciling $136 with the lack of space in that room.
The location is perfect and the staff is nice. There is only free internet in the lobby
The room was modern, clean and with all the facilities required for a short break. The hotel provided a nice breakfast and the hotel location made it easy to walk to numerous fine restaurants in the evening
Location was excellent for sightseeing in Bruges. Breakfast was really nice. Big variety and good quality. Internet connection in the room was not very good.
Freindly and pleasent staff, who were most helpful on all matters.
Ample space, chocolate, friendly staff, bathtub, comfortable beds, decor, great location in the city, attractive and modern
Staff is very friendly and welcoming Room is quite spacious and comfortable Breakfast is not bad Location is convenient -3-10 minutes walking from main attractions We got room on the first floor and it was a bit noisy, I beleivesecond floor would be better
Very nice staff at the recption and also flexible to our needs. Also nice hotel. Nothing at all.
Very friendly staff. Very helpful. Good eating places right next to the hotel .
the excellent hospitality of the staff the television in room 302 was not working properly
Great value and superb location
I got the room for $75/night from the usual $150-200 since it was Monday during the low season. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the train station and right by the Lake of Love. All major attractions are within an easy 10 minute walk. The wi-fi is terrible. I constantly had one bar (instead of 4) on my iPhone, which made everything extremely slow and unstable. Major frustration.
As a regular visitor to the hotel the convenience and the general good package offered by the hotel suits my needs
Always a good hotel.
The staff was fabulous. Particularly the front desk staff. There were no drawbacks that we experienced.
Gorgeous hotel just outside the center of Bruges but less than a ten minute walk to the markt. My room had a beautiful view of the city and was very comfortable.
Great position. Good breakfast. Internet access should be free in all four star hotels.
A very good hotel.
Very friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms and an excellent central location to visit Brugge from.
Although our room was great and overlooked the courtyard at the back, our friends were in a part of the hotel that overlooked a disco and was very noisy and woke them every night of the stay. Also the floorboards are very squeaky and the slightest movement in any of the rooms is heard from rooms on the first floor.
It is a beautiful hotel. The rooms were spacious and quite luxurious. Cleanliness was great. Staff were efficient and friendly. Breakfast was good. Good value for money. Nothing
Stayed in a very nice studio room - away from everyone else N/A
The hotel is located very close to the town square and the staff was very friendly. It is an ok hotel but maybe a little bit old. This did not disturb us, though.
Convenience and it took one night weekend reservations.
Excellent location and decent breakfast! First floor room, right on the street, near bars and clubs.
Good selection of hot and cold food at breakfast. Walking distance to main square, reception staff friendly and helpful. Room small but adequate, huge bathroom, nice decor in room. No parking on site but parking garage nearby. Location hard to find by car without GPS or map.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Very conviniently situated.
Position apart from the loud music from the concerts
Very good hotel, within easy walking distance of the centre of Bruges.
Karos hotel is in walking distance from a lot of nice places
Friendly staff. Closeness to the town centre and to the train station. The swimmning pool and swimming pool area looked as though it had not been cleaned for a long time. There were lots of towels and sheets stored in the pool area, the dirty towels had not been collected to be cleaned.
The hotel is a 2-star hotel, but in the website it was classified as a three-star. The pillows were wet, the bar and restaurant were closed, the mattress were old.
Reasonable cost for a clean hotel within easy reach of the main attractions of Bruges city centre Very limited parking, poor lighting in the room with lamp and wall lights not working.
Very dated with furnishings, carpets in a disgusting state not only in our room but throughout the entire hotel looked like the cleaners had trailed bleach all over them, wifi has very limited access and at one point staff didnt know how to allow me access to the system. Bedside lights never worked, very hot and stuffy room.
Quiet room. Good breakfast. Rooms could use new carpet. 10 Euro charge for phone use.
Very helpful staff.
Staff pleasant The room carpet was filthy & stank of damp
the rooms the swimming pool, near to shops and attractions. Breakfast varied and excellent hot and cold, cleanliness
great location with parking. cute hotel at right price. 2nd visit to this hotel
Peaceful, allowed to just get on with it, everything there that was required for that, liked being able to sit outside at the back, very convenient sunny meeting place as there were three lots of us staying within our party there.
Good rest, breakfast.
Very friendly, helpful staff A bit noisy as on main road
The staff was extremely friendly. Showing us where to go, the minute we came in. The mattresses were very soft giving me a bad back pain
Often a problem with family-owned hotels, the owner/staff work too many hours. This means that if you have to make a request for service (eg:a glass of wine), one is adding pressure to an already overstretched staff. The room was basic, it was impossible to shower without flooding the floor and the curtains did not fully cover the window. We had a room over looking the car park and with a bright flood light shining all night, sleep was very difficult.
Lots of instant hot water, good room heating, comfortable bed, good decor, good breakfast Better position for wall mirror? kettle in room?
arrived very late after problems with eurotunnel and the owner met us after midnight to give us the keys
Room was ok, nothing luxurious but for the price was satisfactory. Breakfast was good & included in nightly rate. The staff were friendly & helpful, location was quite good. Parking charge was only made known when checking out
hot showers, cooked breakfast cold room on arrival
Staff, all very helpful...... Decor of the hotel. (Although I undetrstand it is due for a refurb.) Room tempertures were low and not adjustable. (Although staff provided us with a heater.)
Location is central brugge and carparking is under the hotel. The hotel was fantastic I would recommend this hotel as it is very child friendly. Only one complaint was that the hotel restaurant for evening meal is very limited not many tables available as they are ready for breakfast the next morning but the waitress was welcoming and friendly.
Very close to center and train station. Ok for what it was.
Staff were very helpful. The re-furbished bedroom was very comfortable. We particularly appreciated the tea and coffee-making facilities.
Very family friendly and central location. Fact that there was not free car parking.
Close to all local attractions friendly helpful staff we smoke so had a smoking room great as the weather was bad No bad points
the fact that it caters for families and has family rooms.
It was nice to have some English channels on the television! Seeing as we were staying with 2 young children, we were confined to our room from 7pm onwards so great to be able to watch something together in English.
The hotel is in an excellent location. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable and good value for money. Only criticism would be no tea/coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast was self service with a wide selection of food. I would not hesitate to use this hotel again.
It's location, it was ideally situated and within walking distances to the main squares of the town and made the experience of finding my way around that much easier. The staff were also friendly and spoke perfect english, which for a person who doesn't speak the local language was very helpful and reassuring. nothing
Clean confirtable hotel close to town centre. There was an unpleasant smell when our bedroom door was opened for the first time but it appeared to clear - we guessed the room had not perhaps been used recently.
Location Need refrigerators and microwaves in rooms.
Location was really good. Rooms were very clean. Black curtains were good idea. Rooms are quite. Breakfast was good enough. Bathroom was a bit small.
The location was fantastic Did not find the staff helpful in providing information or tourist literature. The bare minimum was offered even upon request for more.
The breakfast and the bedroom.. The appalling bathroom which was more akin to one found in a caravan.
The room and bathroom was clean. Breakfast was nice, not a massive range of food but good for me (ceral, fruit salad, boiled eggs, tea, coffee ect.). Location was very good, about 2 or 3 minutes walk to the markt and generally quiet at night. My bathroom was very small but it was ok for me (however I'm not a very big person).
The lady in reception was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and the setting very pleasant. Good breakfast. Very happy indeed.
the superbe view on the canal
The chambermaid left the door of our room open when it was unoccupied!
always friendley & efficient staff . 5th visit to the hotel & everytime excelent. Location superb
Nice hotel. Nice Bathrooms Bed was very uncomfortable, the mattress was of very poor quality.
Hotel was in good location and staff were very helpful.
Being able to park outside for free. The beds are very tired! There is a lot of noise from the street at the side of the hotel, mainly due to traffic on the cobbled surface.
The room was faultless and the breakfast was delicious. Would have prefered to have had a room overlooking the canal.
could not get into rooms till pm. No flexibility.
We requested to change the room since it was attic but it was not available. Should apply for customer request.
spacious room friendly helpful staff
Staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. Rooms were large, well furnished and bright. Good location, just a five minute walk from the heart of the shopping area. The bed (certainly in room 26) sank in the middle and needs to be replaced.
our room had a lovely view over one of the canals, it was clean and comfortable
