Tiny cabin - big experience.
Better coffee and more wider range of foods on the restaurant menu.
We had booked the economy room (there are four) and it was a tiny cabin about 2.5m x 2.5m in size. It had two portholes one of which we opened at night for some fresh air. Some folk might not like the room as it is very small and could be uncomfortable for anyone of a 'larger' size. The desk person made it clear to us how small it was but I have to say that this was exactly what we had expected: a small cabin, and we found it charming and exiting. Only room for a bed and the en-suite shower/wc was almost Lilliputian. The view of the river and the opposite bank was wonderful. Décor was built around the boat theme throughout, just as you would expect. There was no TV in our room but there is a handsome TV lounge if you wish to miss your holiday by sitting in front of a screen.
Breakfast is included in the price of the room and although there is a limited offering it is adequate. There's a fair bit of meat, cheese and fish for folk, and for vegans like myself there is cereal, toast, bread, some tomato and cucumber, marmalade and jam. Not a lot but you can make something of it. There is soya milk for the cereal too. Coffee (okay) is also available - just help yourself.
The hotel has a restaurant and a bar. The bar is good, well stocked and open to the public. You can take your drinks to sit anywhere: in the restaurant area (very nice), the glazed (plastic) lounge overlooking the sea (very good) and up on the top deck open to the elements (excellent). The restaurant seems only to provide pizza style food and didn't seem to be used that much for evening meals.
The ferry across to the other bank is situated about a minutes walk from the boat, Metro 5 mins away and Old town about 10 - 15 mins walk. Overall I have to say that I enjoyed the experience of the Loginn Hotel and returning by boat to a boat in the early evening from exploration of a city built on an archipelago was a fantastic experience.
